I could debate with you till the sun fails to shine neither of us would change our stance. Let us two at least agree to disagree.
Believe me when I say that I would never take offence or fall out with anyone who disagrees with me.
I just find it a bit sad really that people can abandon their faith or call on others to do so just because they have had a "bad"experience with it along the way.
The one thing I notice on reading the forum though,is that no-one ever calls on Muslims to abandon Islam because they disagree with the horrors being perpetrated by groups such as ISIL,Boko Haram,etc.
How many Muslims have given up on their faith due to the actions of these so-called "believers?"
I'd think there are very few.
Cos,they too look at the bigger picture and realise their faith is centred on their GOD...and not on the actions of people who abuse others in HIS name.
Is Christianity and Catholicism in particular just a softer target to criticize and condemn?
