Poll

What best describes your opinion of the Muslim faith?

No better or worse than any other religion
It troubles me
Allahu Akbar
Islam shall bring the downfall of us all
It's a beautiful faith, has poetry others don't

Islam and You
« on: September 20, 2015, 08:50:10 PM »
Since for better or worse leading candidates of the GOP seem to be speaking a lot on the matter I figured we should take a formal informal poll of TOM's views of Mohammad and the Muslim faithful.

You omitted my choice.

Its dark side is more potentially harmful to my health than the dark side of Christianity.

Up to four wives:  pretty good selling point, since I don't drink anyway, but not enough to close the deal.  Needs a few more perks and better marketing.

Their marketing department needs an overhaul. We only get to hear the bad things about the religion and not much of the good.

My guess is if you go to the Middle East, their media puts a spin on Christianity in very similar ways.

Contrariwise:  if God had not intended us to eat pigs, why did He make them so darned tasty?

You really want four wives? Personally that sounds like a perpetual headache to me.
