I've read the commenters and they have chosen several purposes in an ongoing free-for-all and of course the thread starter's only purpose was advertising the plea. Then let's go back to a question that arose. Why do people hate Islam? When many people hate something that is Islam related, it's often Muslims. Muslims who are violent extremists, Muslims who want to oppress people, etc. I suspect that some of the people whom actually hate Islam feel that way because it competes with some set of philosophies that they like. Other people like myself hate Islam simply because it is largely based on a book that issues many false claims about reality.
