Video: What the Seminaries Skipped About Islam is Lethal

Islam was touched during the theology of the Church, Ecclesiology.  It used Lumen Gentium as a reference that dwelt glowingly about the Abrahamic faith and other items that we have in common with Moslems.  And when I studied and worked with Moslems in the States, I found them to be rational and peaceful.  So, I kept this vision about their religion and dismissed the terrorists as fanatics who misunderstood their religion.  When I asked about jihad, I was told that it is an internal spiritual war with our sinfulness.  But the more I get exposed to the unsavory facets of their faith, the more the doubt whether the Moslems whom I know are aware of the extreme teachings but chose to live peacefully because, they think for themselves and follow their common sense.

But it won't help if I continue to ignore and smooth over truths about Islam that are problematic.  So, I post this video that claims, with references, a less popular view of the theo-political nature of this belief system.  And the point made is that, unless this is understood and accepted or considered, then the problem with the Islamic conflict will never be addressed correctly.!
