Islam

You asked for a reason for my rollback of your edit to that article.

Let's begin by establishing a ground rule: Neither I nor any other administrator is under any obligation to explain anything he does, except to a higher-ranking administrator. I am simply responsible to Mr. Ashcraft as to the appropriateness of my actions, and the soundness of my judgment. But I am not responsible to you.

Now I'll give you an explanation anyway, just so that you know that we administrators proceed through logic:

An article on any religion is a place to describe that religion, and its history. Any value judgments that we care to make, we must exprress in a polite manner. What you wrote was needlessly inflammatory. The best defense of Christianity is on its own page. Aside from that: we can offer criticism of Islam for its logical flaws, and for its pretenses to be something that it is not. (It pretends to be an extension of the Judeo-Christian system, and that it definitely is not.) But what you tried to cite, tells the reader nothing that he wouldn't be able to figure out.

In any event, the primary mission of this site is to discuss science and history from the perspective of creationism, not to urge anyone to declare war against any particular religious tradition.--TemlakosTalk 16:56, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
