Christianity inherently requires from its believers that they accept certain dogmas, otherwise Christianity would be totally 'illogical', while my personal faith doesn't require any dogma.

Otherwise you would have recognised long ago that arguing with someone who claims that 1+1=2 is futile; you should only argue with people who claim that 1+1=7.
Since Christians have to accept dogmas they cannot explain logically, they are often the ones who claim that 1+1=7.
In short: you’re more in discussion about Christianity with yourself than with me; you only project the things you disagree with on my person and believe that I said certain things while I haven’t.

I have lived in the United States all my life and I have been to Europe and IMO Americans are a lot more well off. There is a big difference between the United States and Europe as a whole.
I do not agree with you simply because I believe that Americans don't take as good care of their poor as the Dutch do.
I guess it has to do with the Netherlands being a social (Christian) democratic nation instead of a capitalistic nation like America.

Oh well... I tried.

Now I'll just leave the two above to send emails to each other via the board. I feel a bit like a voyeur reading their private mail to each other.

I'll be back if anyone eventually gets to the OP. It could be an interesting discussion.

I guess you completely missed the point that Christians often accuse the Islam of things that not too far in the past they themselves were guilty of.
Or to say it plainly: there is no difference between a Christian or a Muslim (or a Jew).

I must respond to the OP.

I know several muslim friends. They are wonderful, good, decent, and modest people. I know how it hurts them to see their entire belief system maligned because some extremists have taken it upon themselves to 'punish the infidel'. It is much the same way that I feel when I see the media blow things out of proportion with my own brother and sisters inthe faith.

Is Islaam the best way of life? Obviously I don't think so or I would be one. But are they all criminals or bred to be? Absolutely NOT.

I thank all those who spoke of the reality did not ignore the truth


If I spoke about the crime, not only reminds Muslims, who are extremists only.

But speaking on Christians criminals extremists in Guantanamo, Iraq and

Afghanistan. He spoke of the Jews in Palestine criminals ...

So rather than Muslims from only one mistake, do not say Muslim criminals


please .......

Because of crime and war everywhere and people are the reason ....

Islam is a religion of peace and we believe that as you think you are


Christians ........

Therefore, do not talk and let the truth or ignore or forget ....

Default I think those commenting will find this interesting

I have read this thread and noticed that although uneducated on many topics discussed it did not deter anyone from making ignorant comments on both christians and muslims. It is apparent that no one has been updated or even studied history at all or this topic would not even exist. Food for thought:

If you read this article it may wake up some of you that are oblivious to what is really going on in the world!
