I've been thinking a lot these past several weeks (and, let's face it, these past several years) about the similarities and differences between Islam and Mormonism (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).
I've been thinking that if more Americans took the time to read the Qu'ran and the Book of Mormon, there would be a lot more tolerance, and a lot less desire to burn the Qu'ran (idiot southern preacher!) or terrorize the missionaries.
I'm a Mormon, and yet one of my most prized books is my leather-bound copy of the Qu'ran -- I wrote to the Saudi embassy in college requesting a copy, and a couple months later received it in the mail...free of charge!
Read it. And re-read the Book of Mormon. Then ask yourself why can't we all just get along?
In the same vein, I found this article to be very interesting: http://people-press.org/report/358/public-expresses-mixed-views-of-islam-mormonism.
What do you think?
