Please be respectful of other's thoughts and opinions.....
I would be terribly hurt if I was the average Muslim stumbling into this thread, and I've met them, and I'm around them every day, and they are quite normal people like anyone else at my school... The way you talk about these people saddens me.
Religions are for the most part ancient texts, from times that were terribly different. I think religious folks are starting to accept the modern/need to start accepting the modern if they haven't. EG all Muslims aren't out to get us; Christians start accepting same sex relations (don't start on this it's just an example). Just as there are TONS of Christians who are totally accepting of same sex relations, there are TONS of Muslims who are totally fine befriending us other people and being peaceful. There is a difference between looking at a religious text literally, page for page, and looking at it for the bigger picture, understanding parts of it that were okay 3000 years ago but in our modern world should just be overlooked as "religious history." Interpretation of religious texts was something we went over quite a lot in high school, and is what separates those of us living in 2013 from any fanatics.
