Muhammad vs. Jesus - Fight!

Kottie Paloma’s Jesus vs Mohamed
Kottie Paloma’s "Jesus vs Mohamed"

You sign up for one lousy free PDF about how the Wingnuts hate Obama and end up with every nutjob, anti-science, "ain't Christian ain't right" email partner spam in the world.

Today's anger ball is a book layin' out plain that not only are radical Muslims in the wrong, but the whole frickin' religion is whacked and based on hate and violence. And since I've never met a Conservative who has read the whole Quaran (let alone the whole Bible), I guess it'll stick. But the headline quote stayed with me:
"I have been made victorious through terror."
-- Muhammad, founder of Islam
Why did this stick with me? Because through the terror of the fear of hell, by the terror of the fear for people's own souls, by the terror of torture or being ostracized or being set on fire, Christianity has also been "made victorious."

As soon as we stop demonizing entire swaths of inhabitants of our planet Earth based on their belief system, the sooner we might come to accept that we're not that much different - on a very human level - than other people, despite the color of their skin or who they believe God's Messenger was.

You have quoted Muhammad from Hadith 4:52.220
"I have been made victorious through terror." Then you attempt to compare Christianity to Muhammad? Granted, there were times during the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition when terror was employed BUT that was done by man, NOT Christ Jesus. You're comparing apples with oranges. From your post I can tell your both intelligent and clever. Do a bit more study on the subject. Compare and contrast the Holy Bible with the koran/hadith and put them both in their respective historical timelines and I think, as an honest person, you will come to the conclusion that Mo told a whopper 1400 years ago purely for personal and political aggrandizement.

I do believe this is one of the most intelligent and constructive criticisms I have received; most respondents who don't agree simply call me names.

You have my word that I will read the Quaran in its entirety (at least in English) and make a proper and fair comparison as I do not have the full level of first person information to make that compare and contrast. That may take a while, but it will happen.

Thank you for calling me out.
