So how do you feel about Islam now?

Religion is probably the biggest divider in world history, but for those that believe in God it is central to our existence. Share your views.

Well? They are beheading Christians and anyone else that doesn't fit there insane ideology. They are invading EU and pretty soon they will (noticeably, because they already are under the radar) invade USA as well.

Are you ready to die for your faith?

There live many Muslims in the EU for decades most of them peaceful. But sadly the number of Salafists is on the rise and in bigger cities there are immigrant ghettos where you have social problems of all kind. The problem is when there is already a big group of them they stay among each other. They buy at their own grocery stores having no need to learn the language of majority society, the well-educated of them move away so a ghetto is growing. I think the problem is not the Islam but poverty, lack of education, failed integration and coming from countries with middle age traditions (disrespecting women, higher aggression, rejecting authorities, thinking education is not important). If millions are coming it`s hard to integrate them all in society. But the problem is not religion by itself.

Islam is just like any other religion...good and bad. What a lot of stupid people who want to critique Islam always forget is that most of the atrocities committed by radical Muslims are committed against other Muslims :shock: Yeah, just like you have your bible thumping, abortion clinic bombing Christians you have your radical Muslims.

Invade is a strong word. I have to admit, I was surprised to learn that Paris is more than 45% Muslim, but that includes different ethnic groups as well. Good ole USA was "allegedly" founded on Christian values so I highly doubt we will see a Muslim "invasion" in our lifetime.
