    You have said repeatedly that this kinda violence has nothing to do with Islam.
    Lol no I haven't, do you actually read my posts?

    I'm just saying the cause of the violence isn't solely Islam, as people like you seem to think

    1) It doesn't make the Quran right.
    2) The Quran is universally regarded as the true word of God, whilst Christians generally don't have the same opinion of the Bible.
    Just goes to show how easy it is to selectively quote from a religious text and give the wrong impression of its followers. If you can see that most modern day Christians don't actually want to stone to death disobedient children, why can't you also see that it is only a tiny fraction of the world's 1.5 billion Muslims who commit violence?

    Were you aware that the vast majority of victims of ISIS are Muslims themselves, and that in countries such as Uganda or Nigeria there are Christians who use the Bible to justify killing children accused of witchcraft, executing homosexuals and killing Muslims. There are some evil people in all countries, and some of these use religion to justify their crimes. That doesn't make any one religion bad.

    There should just be an Allahu Akbar of the day tab on the news this happens way too often and people would see how much of an issue tackling radicalism in the UK is.

    Music festivals are quite well known for drug induced violence and insanity, at least in my country. Perhaps Germany is the same.

    Either way, it's more fuel to the fire for the elderly and misinformed to immediately blame Muslims despite the whacked out ****er being on drugs.

    when is the last time you've heard about disobedient children being stoned to death by fundamentalist Christians ?

    so, what ?

    true, not even Muslims are safe from Islamic-inspired violence. In fact they are even more at risk than non-Muslims. I feel for them.

    It's horrific. But it would of course be ridiculous to tarnish all Christians by the actions of a few extremists.

    yes, it is

    however, both Christian and Islamic "holy books" are full of spirits, jinns and assorted demons "possessing" people

    so, both Christianity and Islam have some responsibility in what people do in their name
