Day 123, Question 1 (Cabinet) Secretary Rex Tillerson following the summit in Saudi Arabia stated [in regards to Administration's views on Islam] "I think the President's views...are going to evolve." Do you have a positive or negative view on Islam?

Really neither. No more negative than any other religion, but I don't see any religion as a positive if it happens out in public. So as a deeply personal and very private thing, as all religion should be, meh.

There are many who will disagree because Islam is currently actively taking lives via terrorism. In defense of your position, however many lives are lost through the failure of Christians to seize opportunities to help others. Which is a greater crime? Add in a few centuries of religious war and I believe it's a toss up.

I Go With Zod. Both guilty

Positive of course, when it's not radical.

I have many Arab friends. Many have to be Muslim. We have no problems. They are great citizens.

I have some Arab relatives by marriage. They converted to Christianity. Islam is Satanic, IMO.

Many Christians hold that most other faiths are "myths" of Satan. Sadly the CHRISTIAN community knows very little of the honest intent of millions of non-Christians.

There is only one way, that's through Christ.

I cannot argue with that. However assigning other religions to the Satanic Pile seems a little harsh. Just as many modern Christians reject much of the harsh elements of the Old Testament most Muslims live in peace, have fewer crimes in their countries and seek peace. The exceptions are obvious. But the exceptions do not define Islam.

So then Jesus the Jew was a satanist?

Interesting point. Mary and Joseph were devout Jews.

Don't be absurd, Jesus was the Son of God.

He was also a Jew and not a Christian

His parents were neither CHRISTIAN, Ungodly, or Satanic

Are you serious, Christ was not a Christian? Those in the world before Christ obviously cannot be Christians because he was not yet sacrificed. God will judge everyone depending on their circumstances, their time, and whether they were given the choice to accept Christ as their savior.

I am Circling around your statement that Muslims follow a Satanic religion. Not sure how you get there. My comments are directed at showing that evil exists in many religions as does Gods love and leading.

I don't have a positive view of Islam. My view has evolved from neutral to keep them out!

I thought that was an remarkable comment. I bet he and Trump will have a few private moments discussing what that means!!!
