Islam is a black stain on humanity.

It brainwashes people and causes them feel superior to others to such a degree that they want to kill those who do not believe as they do.

It should be outlawed.

If that's the case then why are the vast majority of Muslims peace loving people who are as aghast about terrorists as most people are, christians, atheists, buddhists or otherwise? and why is Islam one of the largest religions?

For the same reason the majority of Roman Catholics don't follow every edict from the pope. Each individual follows his/her beliefs to a different degree. It doesn't mean that those beliefs (e.g. jihad, islamic supremicist teachings) don't exist. It simply means not everyone is a strict follower of those teachings (fortunately for the rest of teh world).
As far as the vast majority of the Islamic world being "agast about terrorsts" I haven;t seen it. I saw celebrating in the Muslim world on 9/11. We never see blanket condemnation from Islamic leaders about terrorist attacks becasue they can't. To do so would directly contradict the core teachings of Islam.

Well having a death sentence for leaving it tends to encourage people to stay in it (or at least pay it lip service and claim to stay in it).

Are we still talking about Islam or another religion?
