I am sad that this is your view of Christians. I am a Christian and I do not care if your beliefs are different from mine. I only care that you are treated as a person. If you asked for help I would give what I could. There are many people who say they are Christians but do not show the kindness and respect they should.I apologize for those people and I hope you can, after reading this, say that just as all Muslims are not terrorist, all Christians are not judgemental hypocrites.

I read the side bar. It is basically you doing to Christians what you say you hate Christians doing to you. As a matter of fact that is what this whole blog is. I am not some uneducated Christian with blind faith. You speak of how Muslims are called to be kind and passive, but where is that kindness and passiveness. I don't see it here. You expose the mistakes of SOME Christians and say ALL Christians are like this. You are being hypocritical. I was reaching out and being nice because that is the right thing to do. I do not think that God would be pleased with your behavior no matter which religion you follow.
