If one is a Muslim and that one vows the Muslim faith then that one is obligated to follow the book of Muhammad. If a Muslim does not follow that book then that Muslim is not a true Muslim. There are no various interpretations of the book such as is in Judaism or Christianity. It's a matter of one book for all and if one is a Muslim then that is their book.
The radical (politically correct term) Muslim is simply doing what that book tells all of them to do. He/She is not pulling something out of nowhere. The Qur'an teaches all Muslims the same things out of the same book and in the same language.
This fable of different strokes for different folks does not apply in Islam. Can you explain the difference from a good Muslim and a bad Muslim? Is a bad Muslim a person that follows the book which he/she has been taught to obey? And that seems to be okay with you?
LMAO. If one is a Christian and that one vows the Christian faith, then that one is obligated to follow the bible. If a Christian does not follow that book then that Christian is not a true Christian. Otherwise they must stone people for adultery and cannot eat shellfish.
It's hilarious how you guys continuously invoke double standards to attack other faiths and ideals, yet don't hold the same things true to Christianity. How on earth can you claim there aren't various interpretations of the Quaran, when there are several different sects of Islam? Your argument is laughably absurd. Muslims HAVE to take their book literally while Christians do not? What a joke.
There are many Mulsims that do not interpret it literally, much like there are plenty of Christians that do the same with the bible. You need to stop analyzing the situation through your bible tinted glasses. Your bias is obvious here and bears no relevancy to what somebody else believes about their faith. Sorry.
Many Muslims take Jihad or "holy war" to be a conflict within themselves. You fight the greatest Jihad in your heart and mind.Besides by posting these lies and attacks about Islam, you are directly conflicting with the teachings of Jesus about empathy. Are you not a true Christian?

I was going to post a rebuttal, but I am so done with it, not taking the bait.
You are getting close to T&C violations with your thread shadowing tactical attacks on me personally.
