It's interesting to note that this is fundamentally not true in many countries. This would be called heretical and can be punished. There are countries that will kill you if you are not Muslim. Answering Your Hypothetical Question Is a Matter of Life and Death. Luckily, in first world nations,we don't have this problem. Freedom of speech AND thought is not a given!

Back to the original question. It matters.

I like them (: Some of my friends are Muslims, they're wonderful people. All religions have stupid people, you can't blame the whole religion based off of a couple ppl


...but ppl do it anyway with the Christians & Muslims. Oddly enough I haven't seen that done (at least in this country) with other religions. I guess it's 'cause they're the ones with the highest number of adherents ....that probably scares ppl.

I don't mind them at all. They can believe what they believe it doesn't bother me at all. I think I had a Muslim friend once ah I remember her face but I forgot her name it was a real long time ago.

Not all christians are like the westboro baptist church. Not all muslims want to kill you. If there is an entire country that doesn't want you there, I'd tend to say don't go there.

You can't fix other people. Something that must be realized.

i'm very conflicted about this religion because while you get universal themes of loving god,your family,your neighbor and your country.it also has stuff like female circumcision,"honor killings",has spread by conquest more than by preaching.there is respect for other religions but at the price of paying a special tax or" iyar/z tax"

also,they believe in jesus but only believe him to be just another prophet and thus they dont believe in his crucifixion and resurrection which is a deal breaker for me.they also dont believe in the original sin and seems to have a "works" type "salvation"(facing to mecca,praying 5 times at least,observing foods etc etc) instead of a free grace salvation stated in the gospels.also,islam means submission to the will of allah and not love as some misguided muslims in western countries tries to portray.

they are not monolitic as they themselves say there are,because there are two main sects which are the shia and the sunni.which from those two branches out smaller sects and school of thoughts.from folk islam,sufi islam,alawaites,druzes?,wahabbis etc etc etc

also, they claim to be monotheistic but they run around the Kaaba in mecca which contains a large meteorite that fell from the heavens.also,allah means god in the arabian peninsula and africa and the near east but in mohamed's time was also the name of the moon god of the arabian peninsula.

lastly,their holy book is the koran or q'ran but they kind of respect the jewish torah and the gospels while in the hadith which are sayings of their prophet they condemn the people of the book to death,if necessary.well, thats all i know about this religion...my 2 cents

edit:they also believe that there is no trinity and that god and the angels have always existed
second edit: as for muslims themselves,well,there are good and bad ones like in any religion or society on this earth

I respect them a lot, and I think they're really nice and flexible people.
I meet them as patients, or as my patients' families. I have a muslim friend too and she's really cool.
Even if our religions are different, that doesn't make them difficult people we can;t get along with.

The question is why do you hate Islam so much?
