    Quite frankly, the chairwoman either doesn't read her Koran or doesn't believe it. One or the other. Islam is about as peaceful and inclusive as a Klan meeting.

    Okla. lawmakers return donated Qurans
    Gifts returned to diversity panel; lawmaker says book condones killing

    OKLAHOMA CITY - A gift intended to promote diversity in Oklahoma is generating controversy instead.

    Several state lawmakers are returning copies of the Quran to a state panel on diversity after one lawmaker claimed the Muslim holy book condones the killing of innocent people.

    In a letter to colleagues, state Representative Rex Duncan says "most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology." At least 17 other legislators have notified the Governor's Ethnic American Advisory Council that they too will return the gift.

    The council's chairwoman, herself a Muslim, is denouncing Duncan's assessment of Islam. She says Islam not an ideology but a religion, and a "very peaceful, very inclusive" one.

    In Washington, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations calls Duncan's statement "disturbing" and "offensive."

    Okay Supermodernator...

    Tell me where in the bible it instructs christians to kill non-believers. It tells of stories of murder, but I challenge you to find a chapter or verse where God instructs (new testament being post christ) his followers to murder in his name.

    The bible is the old and new testament

    You must kill those who worship another god. Exodus 22:20

    Kill any friends or family that worship a god that is different than your own. Deuteronomy 13:6-10

    Kill all the inhabitants of any city where you find people that worship differently than you. Deuteronomy 13:12-16

    Kill everyone who has religious views that are different than your own. Deuteronomy 17:2-7

    Kill anyone who refuses to listen to a priest. Deuteronomy 17:12-13

    Want more?????

    Some more from numbers

    # Under God's direction, Moses' army defeats the Midianites. They kill all the adult males, but take the women and children captive. When Moses learns that they left some live, he angrily says: "Have you saved all the women alive? Kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." So they went back and did as Moses (and presumably God) instructed, killing everyone except for the virgins. In this way they got 32,000 virgins -- Wow! (Even God gets some of the booty -- including the virgins.) 31:1-54

    # God killed all the Egyptian firstborn. 33:4

    # God tells Moses to exterminate the residents of Canaan and destroy all of their religious symbols and possessions. 33:50-52

    # But if the Israelites don't kill them all, then God will make them pricks in their eyes and thorns in their sides. And he will do unto the Israelites as he planned to do to the inhabitants of Canaan. 33:55-56

    I can keep going. Is it not your interpretation? Tough. Its how I read it.
