Islam: what do you think?
Advertisements [?]
Recently, out of pure interest, I began researching the similarities and differences between Christianity and Islam. The last thing in the world I want to be is religiously intolerant, but I was shocked at some of the things I found out about Islam (and I made sure I researched only non-rightwing sources). For example, the 72 virgins for dying for Allah bit is actually in the Koran, not just in the Al-Qaeda training manual like I used to think. I know there are Christian fanatics as well as Muslim fanatics, and I am ashamed to share the same religion as them. What do you think: is Islam really an inherently violent religion or is that only RW propaganda?
