    So, I have seen so much controversy over Islam in nearly any forum I go to. Here is a topic I made cause I want to get a general idea of everyone's opinion on them.

    islam to me is no different than any other religion. it's the extremists that causes the problem. most practitioners are law abiding people. the demonstrations you see on the news are what any group of people would do to express their opinions about things they don't agree with. the conflict between christianity and islam goes back centuries. can you blame them for how they feel?

    Everyone has a Right to Their Own words when they Pray. I Pray that Islam, Someday Learns that. Conversion should Never be a Death Sentence, it is an Unalienable Right, a matter of Conscience. Too many confuse Pray, with Prey. ;)

    IMO no religion is beneficial to society. Duping people into believing in the man in the sky is the same as duping children into believing in santa.

    I don't know enough about their views to be certain....but if, for example, a poll that I saw is correct, in which 84% of Egyptians believe that adulterers should be stoned, then the mainstream is too extreme for my taste.

    Find a map of where islam is.
    overlay it with a map of where the worlds misery is.

    That should give you more than enough information.

    There's nothing inherently wrong with Islam that cannot also be said about any major faith, Cain. The problem is cultural. Arabs vs. Jews in the Middle East. Arabs vs. Arabs in the Middle East. Recent immigrants vs. long-time residents in Europe.

    I doubt we'll ever have a huge influx of immigrants from Muslim nations here in the US....I would hope our immigration laws are strict enough to prevent that, and you cannot walk here. Muslim Americans have a right to believe and worship as they wish. They have a right to be treated with respect and dignity.

    As for those who break our laws, I have confidence our legal system will cope with them.

    Its a religion just like any other and I believe religion should be practiced privately by people in their own homes, I don't believe people should try and use religious laws in the government and use it against people, that is what goes on in many Muslim countries if not most. Thats not the fault of Islam but of Muslims.
