While the Bible is the word of God, Christians are not beholden to the laws of the Old Testament. Christian is a follower of Christ, and the laws of the NT.

Any Christians who use the OT to justify their bigotry or hateful attitudes are doing it wrong.

I know many who would disagree with this. But on the forefront of a good arguement is any one person who becomes obsessed within their religion obsessed, can be used in this arguement.

Many religions support a lot of things where the religion is being used, as the tool to be able to do the bad. At the frontline of any good arguement, religion is one that constantly comes up.
Many religious people very religious who are the biggest bigots and hypocrites around.

Wouldn't they?

Explain why your ridiculous contention isn't happening?
Some Catholics use birth control so not everyone follows their religion 100% if they did there would be killings 24/7.
the Koran does say that Muslims should kill the infide so if they followed it 100% thats what they would do true?

This poll does.
Your poll only cited Muslim AMERICANS which you then extrapolated to reflect Islam universally.

Gee and you think that Muslim American poll answers might be a teensy bit sensative to how they answer the question in the wake of 9-11 etc?

Not exactly well thought out.

While true, Christians and Jews believe in the same god, so if the NT is thr word of god so is the OT.

Sadly, logic is scarce is deciding which storybook sounds most like the REAL omnipotent man in the sky.

Would you have preferred that I stated that Muslims were the least likely religious group in America to condone the killing of innocent civilians?

The vast majority do not.

Just as the vast majority of Muslims do not follow similar verses in the Q'uran.

By asking me that, you just went well over 90 degrees with your angle.

Islam allows the Muslim to lie for the sake of Allah, too.

If a person is not a bigot toward idea's that have people lift their leg and dump on what life is...what good are they.

Thanks for the laugh. Muslim Americans? You should say Muslims living in and off of Americans. Like the Boston murder group of muslims there are many millions willing to step up soon enough. Islam started in Mecca - a few thousand - by murdering and cutting out peoples tongues islam has spread to over come 56 more nations. You need to do your homework. Here is just one headline :
Did you know, in 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women.


Here is the link. [url=http://jdlcanada.wordpress.com/2012/01/05/did-you-know-1971-muslims-murdered-2-4-million-hindus-and-raped-200000-hindu-women/]Did you know, in 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women? | Jewish Defence League Canada[/url]

Muslims in America are a very tiny minority - less than 7% of the population but you hear something about them killing every single day somewhere in the world including the USA. This is a nice sentiment but it is a lie. Mohammad the founder of Islam murder people to spread his message of lies. He is recorded as having sex with a child of 9 when he was near 60. Her name? AISHA. Again do your homework.
