You're watching too many news reports. Open your mind. And by the way, Islam and Christianity have much in common
Power, fighting for territory are the biggest killers. See the US - you think they fight religious wars?!
Religion is misused for that, it is not the reason.
At the moment fighting in Iraq is to do with power, and no wars since the crusades have really been to do with religion. If the US and Russia are the biggest aggressors, seen as such, how does religion fit here?!
The US kill many, many people, far more than Muslim's allegedly killing others for not being Muslim. It's as said about power, territory, not religion
It's meant to be. Just like christianity. But evil people try to use it to do evil. There are "christians" that do the same thing.
Show me one Christian extremists group that kills innocent people by the hundreds..... In modern times..
I don't think any religion comes out or promotes violence. The preachers, enforces and (orthodox) followers are to be blamed for anything and everything bad.
E.g. "Women should be dressed" - It so happens everything will read and interpret it differently.
It is people that corrupt religion.
It is people who created religion
It's people who created the rules ( religion) but I'm certain they never envisioned such orthodox/ extremists.
peaceful doesn't mean you can come invade their land and kill them and they still smile to you.
it isn't and probably never will be
The same way Christianity, judaism, Hinduism and others are.
It actually is. The problems are arising from the extremists.
Some people (brainwashed hillbilly's) Tend to misunderstand the Quran and start thinking they can force others to convert (which islam by the way is against) Those people aren't called muslims they're called mentally unstable animals.
and from intolerance and ignorance that is so wide spread.
The killer is the greed of people. Most wars are because of greed . They use religion to attract people to be the fuel of their war.
Like I said, I am extremely religious. I have no plans to kill anyone nor do support anyone that does.
Daved, you really have no idea what you're talking about. Seems pretty evident that you have actually not read the Qur'an. There is numerous verse within it endorsing Islamic extremism. Muhammad himself participated in jihad.
There are no peaceful religions
I ask this question a few days back. Its a religion of peace, ONLY if you are Muslim and the correct tribe.
What do you mean?
Islamic suicide bombers spread pieces of themselves (and their victims) all over the place.
The same way Christianity is peaceful. Take the Holocaust for example. Christians fighting the evil Jews in the name of their god.
so true, there exist still letters from the Protestant church that should encourage Hitler to "solve" the Problem....
Ahem, many Christians were actually persecuted in Nazi Germany. Hitler was an atheist.
Hitler was a devout Roman Catholic. He and the Nazi regime signed a treaty with the Holy See before the Holocaust started.
lol dunno about that but for me religions are man made since there won't be different religions nowadays if it weren't made by humans
Every religions claims to be peaceful, until their extremists start killing. Well, look at the crusades...
or look at what Christian churches did in medieval times......and dont Forget, most troups and weappons are blessed by a priest....
