Hi ChaseE,
You wanted to debate with me about whether Islam is peaceful or not, so let's go. Firstly, I think that Islam is a peaceful religion due to the fact that there are several verses in the Quran and several Hadith which promote peaceful sayings. An example being: 'Indeed, Allah enjoins justice, and the doing of good to others; and giving like kindred; and forbids indecency, and manifest evil, and wrongful transgression. He admonished you that you may take heed.' (Al Quran 16:91). Secondly I feel that you may believe that Islam is not peaceful due to the horrendous actions carried out by so-called Islamic terrorists, however I would like to clear up the fact that these Islamic terrorists are going against the teachings of Islam, it is not up to me to say who is Muslim and who isn't but I can say that they are going completely against the teachings of Islam because no teaching of Islam supports their actions.

Thanks

King Toffee
