You sound very open-minded. I have a few muslim friends in my past and I almost converted once. I just think it is good to hear a member of Islam speak of something other than fatwas and jihads. A lot of the people I know believe Islam is a religion of hatred, whereas I think that all of those people have a good reason to feel the way they do about America(don't get me wrong; I don't think that people should die for any reason, especially religion). I just know that religion is basically submission. You give yourself up completely and faithfully to something you can't prove and you follow rules made by Someone you can't prove exists.

In America, freedom is more important than religion. That is why these people hate us(that isn't why they all hate us, but it is a good chance that is why osama does). Our country has the most freedom, but from a religious point of view we are the most sinful country.

Just my thoughts.

Chris
