No. Muhammad was a bloody thirsty madman that stole, murdered, tortured, raped, and fucked children. Only a sick person would follow a piece of shit that killed everyone that disagreed with him and liked to have sex with children.

It Depends, there are two branches of Islam one is more violent and "traditional" than at other

Fact: There are nearly 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. Fact: That's literally 5 Muslims for every American. Fact: If Islam as a whole were violent, there would be a shitload more dead Americans in the world.

If Islam as a whole was peaceful, where is the outrage?

So called "moderate Muslims" danced in the streets on 9-11. I agree, where is the outrage? Who are these apparents that supposedly appose the acts of the violent muslims? Even our own (questionably Muslim) president defends them in ways.

There's also more radicalized Muslims than there are Americans, but they're still a minority of the Muslim population. Yet it only took 19 of them to bring down 4 airplanes on 9/11. See the Pew research I linked below. It's the most exhaustive

It's excellent research. 19% of American Muslims think suicide bombing can be justified "to defend Islam." I don't recall how many American Muslims there are, but this equates to a lot of people. Most won't ever transition into being an actual

As a whole, yes. Is there a moderately large group of believers in Islam that act like it's not? Yes.

Sure, but so do God, Zeus, Odin, and everyone else. Surely Buddhists and Atheists can't be the only nonviolent people.

Religions cannot inherently be peaceful or violent. A book never killed anyone.
There are both violent and peaceful interpreters of every religion.

Of course it's peaceful. Look how peaceful the Palestinians are toward their Jewish neighbors.

I keep hearing that it is a peaceful religion but I hear terrorism, wars and abuse made by muslims and Islamic countries all the time. And I don't see the "peaceful" muslims doing something about it.

And liberals don't want to talk about it. They insist that instead we talk about medieval Christianity which a tacit admission on their part.

Yuke, that's EXACTLY the reason I'm not going through the 100+ Qur'an verses explicitly calling for death/pain or both, for non-Muslims, or those who don't convert. There are a gallery of folks who lie in wait, just hoping ANYone will

...so they can pounce with their counter-narrative of how brutal Christians were. They may not believe in God or Bible, but man do some o' these same folks dig Old Testament bloodshed, as if it's perfect justification for today's Muslim atrocities.

Yup. It's as if they're saying "don't talk about Islamic terrorism because we'll talk about medieval times." Islamists get a pass.

See, Yukon, you failed right there. You switched topics from Islam to Islamists. I don't know anyone, literally anyone anywhere (except Islamists themselves) who is giving Islamists a free pass. But conflating Islam and Islamists is like saying that

Mostly, but it has a lot that interpret their scripture literally and akin to the way it was interpreted in medieval times which causes them to become murderers and supporters of murderers.

Something on the order of 400 million Muslims follow the austere version of Islam. Extrapolate the numbers to 1.9B Muslims worldwide and you'll see. www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/the-worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-overview/

Thus Pew survey was conducted in 38 countries with 39,000 face-to-face interviews in over 80 languages. It's the most comprehensive and scientific research of Muslim beliefs ever conducted.

The three Abrahamic (Jewish,Christian,Islamic) religions worship a very violent God. It's up to the followers to choose to be peaceful in-spite of their bibles.

I'm not sure about the New Testament. I'm very sure about the Old Testament. Both are the same God.

God hates SIN. The fact that you are still alive and living in rebellion to God is proof of His GRACE.

I look at it like this: the very fact that God is alive is due to his followers, and their grace. Other wise he would join the god graveyard with Odin, Thor & Ra. : )

Odin, Thor and Ra NEVER spoke to anyone so they died out. The Lord speaks to people all over the world daily. One of the missionary Doctors who contracted EBOLA in Africa said he will go back if the Lord leads him.

Or it's proof that God doesn't EXIST.

Its followers in America, for the most part, seem to be very peaceful from whatI've seen. But the Qur'an contains some very unpeaceful verses and the early history of the Prophet and his conquests of cities was anything but peaceful.
