All religions have a dark side. To deny it, is to be half conscious.

Christians should take a long hard look at the Grand Mufti’s statement — he is calling for peace on all sides, and real Christians need to respond in a like manner, not by being combative and abusive, not by finding fault. If we actually followed in the footsteps of the people we say we believe in (Christ, Mohammad), the world might be a better place. As it is, as long as we only pay lip service: we are just fans, as Bill Mahar so eloquently put it.

In my experience of trying to discuss with Muslims the vast majority are deeply ignorant (despite their protestations otherwise), or deeply in denial, of the truth about Islam.

All this problem of violent reactions to merely verbal/figurative insults or criticisms is entirely, and only, understandable in terms of two key facts about Islam:
Fact 1 – A most central principle of Islam is that its founder is considered the most perfect man whose example should be followed as ideal moral behaviour. “Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day..” – Qur’an 33:21.
Fact 2- That founder on numerous occasions ordered the killing of peaceful people who wrote poetry critiquing his rule (or otherwise challenged his authority). There’s extensive documentation of this (and much more) in the documents considered sacred by Muslims namely Qur’an, Hadiths and Sira.

If you want to know what is really behind all this violence just do a websearch for
muhammad jewish poet
and all will become clear.

My question is why doesn’t his followers practice his example? Christians tolerate abuse and don’t riot and kill. Budhists tolerate. Jews tolerate. Hindi tolerate. All other faiths tolerate and respond in peace. Only Islam attacks and kills innocents over a picture or cartoon. Why? WHY?

Wikipedia says otherwise. Please fact-check the grand mufti.

It is in the spirit of the great work of ecumenical harmony of Nicholas of Cusa De Pacei Fidei. This same Cusa was instrumental in promoting the voyage of Christopher Columbus that led to the founding of the United States which enshrouds in its Constitution that very same principle.

This same spirit today cries out for a new concordance among nations and faiths in order to get on with the mission that humanity so urgently requires. This mission is the human right to meaningful work that supplies the security of food, shelter, healthcare and ultimately provides the individual an opportunity to participate in the ongoing perfection of mankind’s continuing mastery over nature. This purpose being striven for by us then will give reality to the truth that we are all created in the image of the living God.
