I had a professor in college who was Islamic. He was one of the best teachers I've ever had. We all loved his classes and he wrote a nice letter of recommendation for me after graduation. When I consider him along with the Muslim extremists in the world, I'm on the fence about what to think of the religion of Islam. On one hand there are Muslims like my teacher who don't seem to have any interest in Jihad or terrorism. On the other are the monsters that we're at war with.

Any "religion" that treats their women like second class citizens is a cult. Yes- I know about that religion in Salt Lake as well.

You obviously know nothing about the culture of Salt Lake. Women rule the roost there....

Of course there are many Christians (both men and women) who feel women are to be subservient and answer to the man (husband).

So the entire USA was a sort of cult until the Nineteenth Amendment passed?

One of my best friends I grew up with, as well as many of my friends, have parents from the middle east (mostly Iran and Syria).

In the documentary they are very clear that many people are just ignorant to what the Koran says and they only take Muhammad's early teachings from Medina and not his later, kill everybody, teachings from Mecca.

Or, they're fighting with what they want to believe, much like the PLO member that left.

That, or they're lying. And it is very clear in the Koran that lying is OK in many instances.

I'm not saying all Muslims are bad people, far from it. I'm saying Islam is bad for your health if you're not Muslim.

Pretty much. We did learn and change. Various "religions" have not.

People comparing this to any other organized religion. . . notice the title. It's "What the west needs to know" for a reason.

Or don't watch it and just keep making assumptions.

So sick of this ridiculous argument.....show me where a prominent Christian leader (not Phelps or whackos like that) in modern times has called for the DEATH of non-believers? How many times has Ahmadinnerjacket called for the extermination of Israel in the name of Islam?

Post your own thread if you've seen the documentary. Thanks.
You attack and call me a name because I tried to abide by your wishes??? You are a class act.

Similiar to dmtnt, I was just making the point that everytime islam is mentioned, someone begins trying to tell how bad Christianity is. In deference to your 1st post, I asked if there was to be a debate on Christianity vs. islam, that it be done outside of your thread.

PS. I have seen it & agree, there is some information in it that is not well understood.

PSS. & back to your reply to me.....Yes, I dare you as well, I can debate the virtues and ills of either as long as you wish.... but I still think that needs be done in PR&C, not here.

So what it tells me is you haven't seen the news in the past, I don't know. . since the 12 or 1300s.
Does Galileo Galilei vs the Catholic Church about 400 yrs ago and only exonerated from his "crimes" less than 50yrs ago ring a bell...
