No reason to pingback

As I do not see a reason why I should give people who post on the Internet and then censor people’s comments traffic. I will however, leave my comment that I left on theirs here, just for record’s sake.
And if you came here looking for a fight, I’d tell you to buzz off. If you want to have a good discussion, then I’m all ears. Just no flaming please, this is a public blog after all. Thanks.
And yes, you may disregard the comment as it has nothing whatsover to do with my next post… PC FAIR!!!
Honestly, reading this whole thing is giving me a headache, so I’ll just sum up something that you might pointed out yourselves.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MODERATE / EXTREMIST / FANATICAL ETC. ISLAM. THERE’S ONLY ONE ISLAM, ONE ESSENCE IN ITS TEACHINGS AND ONE GOD! THERE ARE NO DIFFERENT FACES TO ISLAM.
If that is true, why are there different schools of thoughts?
I’d say it’s not that the essence is wrong, but the perception of the essence. After all, it’s the same reason why Christianity itself has so many schools of thought and religion.
And by the way, Christianity does have it’s own punishment against those who leave the faith, but we do not see a need to specify to God what that punishment is:
The Letter to the Hebrews, Chapter 4: 5-6, 8
For how can those who abandon their faith be brought back to repent again? They were once in God’s light: they tasted heaven’s gift and received their share of the Holy Spirit; they knew from experience that God’s works is good, and they
had felt the powers of the coming age. 6 And then they abandoned their faith! It is impossible to bring them back to repent again, because they are again crucifying the Son of God and exposing Him to public shame.
God blesses the soil which drinks in the rain that often falls on it and which grows plants that are useful to those for whom it is cultivated. But if it grows thorns and weeds, it is worth nothing; it is in danger of being cursed by God and will be destroyed by fire.
If this is preaching to you, then I am sorry, but if you choose to delete this comment because I quoted from my own religious text to defend my religion against attacks from religions like yours, then I’m sad and ashamed that Beautiful Islam has such ugly followers.
