    The fact that the founder of their faith is still in the grave should tell them something.

    "Thou shalt not kill"

    I understand the conflict, but these comments I'm reading make us sound just like them. We are supposed to be different. Are you trying to save your life? I have to interact with muslim people all day long. Mistreating them and hating them is just giving them reason to keep that fire of hatred burning.

      Well said my brother. This all has to happen and we just need to go on and preach the Gospel of Jesus and reflect His love and not hate. Remember we are to be different from the world because we are not of this world anymore.
