Islam is Peaceful - Those Who Disrespect It Should Be Slaughtered - 12/30/2006

To a biased, disrespectful but knowledgeable christian.
Islam is a peaceful religon although it does not tolerate being discriminated against. for the people who discriminate and disrespect Islam they should be slaugtered just as it is said in the Q'uran. i am not a terreriost or extremeist but simply agree with the Q'uran. for all you muslims who are arguing with the editor sayin u are wrong about jihad at some points he is but many of the points made are lifted from the q'uran so face up to it we are taught not cause trouble but retaliate to trouble. but terorists target innocent civillians and i feel sorry for them and i would never do a thing like that, and they have done nothing to harm Islam in any way atleast the majority but at the end of the day thay are kafir (non-believers).
so if Q'uran teaches us to slay non-believers then so be it. i have not much knowledgde of the Q'uran but i certainly know it teaches us to love, respect and do good deeds. and if a circumstance brings us to kill kafir i would be honoured. my final point is that Islam is a peaceful religon but were have a zero tolerant rate for being disrespected. excuse my spelling and please email back

CONTENDER MINISTRIES RESPONSE:


Hello Omair. Thanks for writing to us. All I can say is that there is considerable irony in hearing that Islam is a peaceful religion, but it advocates the slaughter of those who "disrespect" it. Just as Issa Al-Maseeh (Jesus Christ) says in Matthew 12:33, "you will know a tree by the fruit it bears." In other words, a religion that advocates violence is not a religion of peace. Christians are commanded by Jesus to share the gospel with the world. In Islamic countries, doing so can bring about the death penalty. Who is intolerant? I pray that you figure that out, and come to recognize Jesus as your saviour before it's too late. Hello Omair. Thanks for writing to us.
