The current uproar over the proposed (and currently suspended, maybe) burning of Korans by a Florida pastor has shown the world the true color of Islam. Many of its followers do not respect my faith, my country nor my flag and yet they expect me to respect theirs and if I don’t they threaten me with violence and death, all the while proclaiming to be a religion of peace.
Makes me think of the line from that great song Star Trekking by Wierd Al “We come in piece, shoot to kill, shoot to kill.”
But all joking aside, don’t you get the impression that Islam is a Religion whose ‘word’ is spread through fear rather than peace. Historically Christianity is not innocent in that approach though either, although it’s been a while since the Crusades!
I can’t help but feel there’s one hell of a scrap coming though.
