    Islam? How about you go to Vegas and buy some incents or an Islamist newspaper from the Nation of Islam. They act nice……Then call you a White Devil behind your back..

    Islam is a despicable religion.

    People need to learn more about Islam. Some of the most peaceful people in the world are Islamic. If you judge all Islamic people based on terrorist acts from the past, then why shouldn’t we judge all Christians based on the Westboro Baptist Church or the KKK?

      These so-called ‘peaceful’ Muslims secretly gain satisfaction by living vicariously through the so-called ‘extremists’ and the terrorists who commit despicable acts in the name of a made-up deity. The religion’s positives fail to redeem it and what a glorious day it will be when Islam is dead.

        I laugh at Atheists who despise religion for their many actions in the name of their deity. Complaining about close-mindedness and prejudice when, in actuality, their prejudice trumps that of the vast majority of the followers of any religion. It’s like fighting fire with fire. They also love to bombard people with judgement, without a single cursory knowledge of the religion or its followers. I’m an atheist, but I see the good in many people, religious or not.
