Is Islam the Religion of Peace?

Oct 1, 2012 Full story: www.news24.com 277

I'm a free thinker, free from religious dogma. What I can't understand is why Muslims move to democratic countries and riot and cause trouble ...

Muslims abroad get to do what they like, when they like and how they like, but heaven forbid a person who is not a Muslim says something about them ... Full Story

Saleemz and greetings to you, infidel Americans. Islam is the religion of peace, when everyone on the world will be Muslim and every man has access to virgins, everything will be peaceful. Try a virgin my friend, and may Allah walk with you. Peace be upon him and you.
Are you for real? Not everyone want's to be a muslim, and the false hope of having virgins :S like wtf?

He's just a troll trying to create arguements. I still don't think he's a muslim, sometimes he posts in perfect English, and others he screws it all up. Just a bit too contrived.

[QUOTE who="Joe DeCaro"]
So after all your claims to the contrary, there aren't any calls for violence in God's name in the New Testament after all.
Sweetie, I realize you're denser than most bricks, but girlfriend, please. Like I said before, Jesus being a pacifist has never gotten in the way of the Christian soldier marching off to war. Although just about everything in the New Testament opposes violence and even more so, violence in God's name, the Old Testament remains handy in times of need for a mean-spirited version of God whipping up a frenzy.

It's hard to tell when you can't hear the tone of their voice. I just recalled seeing a few of his posts on other threads.

I explained how you are wrong in my first post. I'm not surprised that you didn't get it and don't recall it. You have proven that you are sadly lacking double digits in your IQ assessment.
You did? Where was I? Let's take a look, shall we?

"You are living in a combination of the past and your fantasy land. Join the rest of us in the present where christians are not slaying people, but muslims are. Join us in looking at current events where muslims murder people who are accused of being gay. In the here and now women and girls are being tortured and killed - by muslims. History can't be changed but the future can be, if morons like yourself would get a clue and see what's happening in the world today. Yo

By the way, it's really creepy to see a dude calling another dude 'hon' and 'sweetie' among other things. I'm sure you are trying to be condescending, really it just looks weird. And creepy."

Hmmmm... What exactly are you imagining as an explanation of how I was wrong? You accused me of living in a "fantasy land" and followed it with your own bizarre fantasy, "where christians are not slaying people". We both already knew Muslims are, there is no dispute on that. Then there is the suggestion that I follow current events that I am already aware of. Yeah. Then you try to finish me off with a cliche about history being unchangeable. Ouch. Nope, no proof that I was wrong about anything I have said there either. I hadn't thought I had missed anything, I was right.

There are too many followers of Allah doing very bad things to others in his name. While there may be some legitimate concerns scattered among their corpses, they are tough to sympathize with because of all of those corpses. Unlike you however, I don't blame the faith for the violence, but its followers. Just like I don't blame Jesus for the acts of violence perpetrated by some of his Christians.

No she isn't.

But it's your kind who make me sick. I'd like to see U get a good beating from a few of the muscle-bound gay boys I know. They're anything but limp-wristed. That would serve U right!

Then why is "In God We Trust" still on U.S. currency, or don't you understand the establishment clause of the First Amendment.

But only one of the three above still persecutes people today.

Then give us the New Testament chapters and verses that encourage Christians to kill, and if you can't understand what I previously posted, then you need a refresher course in English.

Is that all you know? All you intellect can find as a solution? Vicious violence and death?

No wonder your Country is a mess.

Joe, Joe, Joe, are you seriously denying the existence of dozens, if not hundreds of armed groups scattered around the world and countless individuals that are more than happy to act out violently in the name of God and/or the preservation/triumph of Christianity? Oy.

****I expect as a response an attempt to diminish such violence in comparison to Muslims of the same ilk and a half-hearted attempt at denial that it occurs at all.*********

Besides, if one is a "believer" in any given faith, wouldn't the deity's approval be necessary for their participation, or lack thereof, in a "state" war?
