During the Christmas season, Christian families seek to maintain a focus on Jesus and his legacy.

Many of our Christian brothers and sisters may be surprised to know that Muslims love and revere Jesus as one of God's greatest messengers to mankind, just as we love and revere the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon them both.

    I have not much to say to all of your points but to say, again, extremism is extremism no matter what name it takes. The same actions have been taken against Atheists, Christians, Hindus, homosexuals, transvestites, and all other types of people groups by all other types of people groups. To pinpoint one extremist group, and then use that extremism to judge the entire religion is nonsensical.

    Mr. Baumbach, I have not. Have you ever lived as an Atheist in an extremist Christian community?

    Your use of Sharia law in your argument is that of extremist terrorist use thereof. The Islamic understanding of Sharia law is that of personal, religious devotion to their deity and prophet. How it is used in some countries is an extremist form of the concept, much like the Bible's admonition to stone witches has been used in Christian societies.

    Ms Tygert, included is a link of a you tube video I made while in Malaysia... I recorded a Mosque and prayers so you can see I was not making up my experience.

    01. The majority ethnic Malays are defined as Muslim by law and forbidden from converting. I personally had conversations with non Muslim Chinese people who were scared to talk about their situation in public. They did not want to chance having the morality police that roam around listen in to the conversation we were having and refused to answer questions until we were behind closed doors.

    02. I walked to one end of the city to the other and noticed that all people were forced to listen to Muslim prayers 5 times per day by loud speakers in high volume speakers. Non Muslim Chinese and Indians could not avoid it. After 5 hours of walking, not one inch of space was void of Muslim prayer as there were hundreds of Mosques with extreme loud prayers broadcast publically.

    03. While in Kuala Lumpur, I witnessed a female arrested for publically drinking one beer at a restaurant. She was later on the news that announced her punishment would be a public flogging.

    04. If I were to be overheard saying something negative about Allah in Kuala Lumpur, I am subject to arrest and taken to the station were I would be educated as to the error of my thinking.

    If a Muslim in Kuala Lumpur is involved in a crime with a non Muslim, the non Muslim will many times only get legal remedies by going to a Muslim court under Sharia Law. If the crime involves killing, it may not be murder if a Muslim killed a non Muslim infidel as that is not considered a murder in Sharia Law at times

    Ms Tygert, Have you ever lived in a country like Malaysia where Sharia law and Muslim faith is the majority?

    I do not know about fire and brimstone or exactly what you mean by that phrase. I have though experienced what life is like in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and seen for myself the results.
    This article stated... The message of love, peace and forgiveness taught by Jesus, and accepted by both Christians and Muslims, can serve as a unifying force in a troubled world.
    That is not what I experienced in Malaysia. This is a brief description.

    What did I experience?

    01. There are 5 cultures in Malaysia: Including Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Arabic, with Kuala Lumpur being the cultural, financial and economic center of Malaysia

    I enjoyed the presentation of this article. It's nice to see another religion represented, but mainly the representation of any religion from a welcoming, peaceful tone, is awfully nice to see. I'm getting fairly tired of the fire and brimstone type religion letters that come through here.

    This one was informative, and not preachy. If anyone thinks that's just bias towards Islam, as I see posted often, you'd be missing everything I just wrote.
