    Islam is a false religion

    You think that's confusing? Try Christianity with its 30,000+ churches. There cannot be a God-given church that sooner or later philosophers do not think they can "improve."

    Qur'an is one and the same throughout the world. There is no different versions..

    Hindu, Seikh (sic) and Jain are NOT sub-sects of Islam!

    Your ignorance is staggering - as is your degree of bigotry!

    If that confuses you then Christianity must be beyond your comprehension since Christianity has been split into over 39,500 different denominations, sects and cults setting Christian against Christian and Christians against everyone else!

    God's work? Hardly!

    It must be the Devil and the Antichrist working together to divide, conquer and destroy Christianity from the inside!

    And Christians are any different? They gang up when they aren't fighting each other. Dumb religion, dumb religion.
