Adam wrote:Well, I haven't read the Koran myself, so feel free to disregard this next bit, but people often say that the Koran has some really nasty bits in it. I've heard that it litterly states that anyone who does not believe in Allah should me killed on sight. Women are also often treated as garbage because the Koran says that men are superior to women.
This is not so different from the Bible - except for the 'killing on sight' bit, if that is true. The Bible just says that non-believers must be converted, and that is a Christian's most important task.
I haven't read the Koran either - but repeatedly read that it has much in common with the Bible. The history of Christianity is every bit as bloody as what Islam is going through now. Perhaps it's a phase........ When Europe was in the dark middle ages, and America yet undiscovered, Islamic world was a model of tolerance and wisdom. How things have changed.
