on Islam....

Now, I have no problem with Islam or Muslims. But this kind of thing makes me wonder how much of the “peaceful religion” business to accept.

Some will say “oh but Christians have done this and that and this and that, all awful things, and Muslims have been such peaceful people”. Yes, and we’ve apologized for it and haven’t done it in an institutional way for several centuries. (Many, if not all, of what we now regard as the evils of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, btw, were unauthorized.)
