Maybe I'm just a little confused?  Well that is probably true, but since about 2001 and the WTC attacks what have we herd?  These are just a few radical Muslim Islamics, and do not represent any of the peaceful mainstream Muslims. Only a few radical clerics are behind them.  Okay, we all know the Taliban, Al-queda, Hamas, and a few others are fit this "few".  ISIS is the new kid on the block.  Then you hear about a few others problems, like a few honor killings--these all from normal everyday Fathers or brothers that are regular mainstream Muslims.  Or you hear about a city riot and protest over a comment about  a beauty pageant, that resulted in main streamers burning every Christian church and killing Christians all over the city.  Now you hear about a raft of people trying to escape Libya, and throwing 12 Christians overboard to drown because they prayed to Jesus not the Mohammad.  Coptic Christians being beheaded, and beheading on a daily basis. What am I not understanding when I read a year or so ago about an honor killing that occurred in Arizona, not the middle east or Africa?  What am I not understanding when I see the You-Tubes showing a man with yamica being spit on walking down streets in Paris in a Muslim area?

"Islam is a peaceful religion" is a laughable farce, or would be laughable, if they weren't killing so many people. The hypocrisy slaps you in the face yet people deny it. The thing is, these "radicals" are actually the ones that are truly following their religion and their prophet Mohammad. Those peace loving Muslims who do not partake in the same practices as the "radicals" are the ones who are really not following their religion to the letter.

To be fair, most "Christians" do not follow their Christianity to the letter, which is why there seems to be so much hypocrisy in Christianity but violence is seldom one of the issues.

I guess the bottom line is we do see actions speak louder than words.  As much as I can not understand their religion, I do think the vast majority would never act on what the radicals do, as if they are living 15 centuries ago.  That said, how many are planted in the USA right now, and what we know as sleeper cells.  

 

You are right that few really follow the real writings of the Bible to the letter, myself included.  Violence, as in terrorist acts, similar to what Islam does you are right.  Violence against others, I'm not so sure about.  Murder rates, rape rates, armed robbery, the statistics show anything but a good life in a Judeo/ Christian society.  And we do have a few that have done terrorist acts, from arsonists to bomb scares, mass murders happen everyday.  You also have your everyday wife beaters, child abusers, pedophiles, and crimes related to drugs that are violent. How many of these people came from good old fashioned Christian backgrounds?

It really doesn't matter what religion. There will always be people who pervert it to use as an excuse to do bad things. That and to allow them to control others. Also, why we have so many different types of religion nowadays. Personally, I like the idea of a loving God who allows us to make our own choices, whether it be good or bad. Though I would hope he would be more for good.

There are radicals of all religion and philosophies.  Whether it be Islam, Christianity, or Judaism, or (dun...dun...dun) athiestst, etc.

They all murder in the name of their beliefs.  One is no better than another.  In fact religion is used to promote murder/war against others.

What needs to be promoted is our similarities, not our differences.  We need to help other lives, not degrade them or take them away, through war/murder...

Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen... - Zbigniew Brezhinsky

The difference between those who kill in the name of Christianity and those who kill in the name of Allah is, that for a Christian to commit such acts, they have to violate every teaching of Christ.  For a Muslim to do it, they have to follow the teachings and examples of their "prophet" Mohammad.  

A Christian who is following what Christ taught, will likely pray for you if they find out you're not a Christian.  

A Muslim who is following what Mohammad taught, will likely give you one chance to submit to Islam before they kill you.

The difference between a radical Muslim and a moderate Muslim, it opportunity.

Hate to disagree with you nasaie, but if you do look up the list of major wars in history it will show you that only a few were classifed as religous wars. Just the numbers of WW1 and WW2 alone in deaths makes all others combined pale in comparison to the war dead count.  It is a misconception that most wars are in some way due to religion.
