    Mohammed was simply a killer and a paedophile. His Koran should be burned worldwide to represent the burning he suffers in hell. That would be a fair and educational thing to do, for the world to see and rejoice to. Jesus will return to destroy the enemies of His Father (Muslims mainly by the way things are going) and I’ll be cheering Him on with eyes full of wonder. I forgive and I love all my enemies, including you oh Muslim, but Jesus will destroy you unless you repent of your satanic religion called Islam. And it will glorify His Father to do so. God help you.

      Your god is one pitiful control freak. Probably not the god you read about in the Bible.
