I understand your frustration with what you are hearing, and i find their extremist views quite damaging to humanity, but do you understand that you
are basing your hatred (in this thread - i don't know your general views), on MSM?
I mean, i won't exactly find reports on fundamental christianity in the 6 o'clock news, but if i searched in the right places, i'm sure i would
Keep in mind, your country (assuming you're a western nation), has to justify their place in a war against islamic extremism, so it's not exactly
surprising to see islam being showcased as a generally-violent, stone age religion.

While the tv box shows you the western world's modern achievements, they fail to show the advancement of the middle east - not only as a religion,

Any religion in it's extreme form is damaging! Not any particular one. And try not to trust the tv too much. If you're not quite sure, google it.
Gather information from people from MANY countries - not just christian america.

Focus less on the bad ones, and try to break the chain of indoctrination. Make your own decision.
I got an idea, next muslim you see, go up to him and say hi. Offer him help. Even if he is confused and acts hostile, you will remain in his thoughts
the whole day because you were different. You don't belong in this western belief that we are perfect, and they are lesser
