I wrote a post on January 7 about Muhammad and Muslims. I think it is important for us to realize that what we are fed by the media, especially the more conservative TV media and the numerous talkers on radio, is often imbalanced. It is definitely not gospel. We ought to see it for what it really is, opinion and often opinion of a militant sort.

Here is a wonderful story that could help us build bridges of peace. Not all Muslims are committed to violence and not all Muslims read the Koran in the way the radicals read it. To suggest otherwise is slanderous and dangerous. My central point is this: If Jesus calls us to be peacemakers should we not actually be known as real peacemakers in how we respond to the modern world? Check out this story you are very likely to have missed.

    Mr. Armstrong, I too was quite moved by the example and couage of those thousands of Muslims in Egypt who acted as human shields for Coptic Christians across Egypt on their Christmas Eve services.
    Sadly, I noted a bit of prejudice when you chose to hold only conservative news and radio hosts for the unbalanced and hateful things that are often said. In my opinion, both the left and the right have contributed equally to the sad state of intolerance in this country. It isn’t just news show hosts and politicians, but church leaders, liberal and conservative, are just as guilty. Opinion and agendas, rather than grace and Gospel, are often heard from them all.
