Don’t judge a religion by its extremists

Egon seems to think that I believe that Christian extremism justifies Islamic extremism. He completely misses my point!

What I’ve been trying to say is that while there is extremism in every religion, we shouldn’t condemn the entire religion and insult the millions of good people who follow it. If we would judge people by their individual behaviour and not by their race, religion or nationality, a great deal of war, suffering and persecution could be avoided.
