Yeah. Gotta agree with this.
I don't disagree with the intent (in terms of being at peace with others), obviously that's a good thing; but we have a serious problem with society
and with the world at large where "being at peace" is being equated with "being in total agreement with".
I don't agree that Allah is the God of the Bible.
I don't agree that Mohammed is a prophet.
I don't agree that Islam can offer salvation, or a solution to the fundamental problem with man (disconnect from God)...
but that doesn't mean I'm going to punch a muslim in the face next time I'm out walking on the street.
It doesn't mean I wouldn't have coffee with one.
It doesn't even mean that I wouldn't give of my own money to help care for muslims (oddly enough, I do).
...but peace should never come at the expense of truth.
It should complement it.
