it was meant to be terribly stupid, but oh well.
Let me point out what you basically did.
you suggested that there is content in a holy book that over a billion people take to be "absolute truth" (forgive the repetition), but not only was it a suggestion, it was a suggestion for a passage that could potentially make people hate islam more because of it, dont you see that this is what this thread is pre-dominantly based on, im sorry you dont see it as to how offensive it really is.
Offensive because you take it that way, I said nothing that was intended to hurt you personally and I have no intention of doing that.
The teachings of the Quran are what the entire religion is based upon? So how can't they be relevant? I endlessly hear the tolerant passages showing how nice Muhammed (pbuh - out of respect to you) was, but the ones that show a different side to the religion are irrelevant?
I didn't make anything up, I'm not trying to make Islam out to be something its not, I quoted its actual
teachings - it's not my fault what your holy book has written in it, if you disagree with some of its passages then you disagree with what I can only describe as the core values of Islam. I'm sorry but when reading the Quran do you flick through what you consider to be irrelevant? Do you consider Sura 9:29 to be relevant?
I just can't understand how I'm being offensive by quoting the book that your life is based around. Don't you like all
if it? I thought there was a teaching that the Quran is considered to be flawless?
