Muslim pupils kill teacher in northeast Nigeria
What is wrong with these people?
I am amazed at these Moslems. I am an Eckist and you cannot imagine how many times people have said rude things about me and my choice of faith. As the third largest faith in Nigeria, I wonder what would happen if every Eckist reacted because someone did something to offend our doctrine.
When will Moslems/ Christians and any member of the orthodox faith learn that the greatest defense you can give of your faith and your belief in God is how you choose to live your life. Burning down cities and killing non believers does not make you faithful, it makes you an embarrassment unto your teachings. That was how those ignorant fools cost us the priviledge of hosting the Miss World Contest in 2002 because they claimed that some journalist had insulted Prophet Mohamed. According to my research, he had many wives, an indication that indeed like the journalist said, he had an appreciation and an eye for the ladies. I am not going to go into the fact that he married one at thirteen......
I wonder what they are going to burn down as a result of this blog now.
Stupid! Stupid!! Stupid!!!

An Eckist is someone who follows the path of Eckankar: The Religion of the Light and Sound Of God.
Thus, that is the religious faith that I practice. It is a path of love and service and respect for others. So, I am very disturbed when in the name of God whom we all serve and originate, some would bring harm to others

As an individual pursing knowledge via academia you indeed know how important it is to do thorough research on any topic before coming to a conclusion or speaking (in this case writing) on it.

My concern with your post is not the act of condemning a wrong and unnecessarily behavior but your act of disrespecting billions of worshippers’ prophet and consequently their religion by your inability to thoroughly research and convey complete facts on the information you are sharing.

The ability to make a point, correct and most importantly teach others is not how effective you are at belittling, insulting, or criticizing those who do not agree with your position but instead your ability to remain non-hostile yet unwavering while you express your thoughts, beliefs, and complete knowledge on that in which you speak.

In your attempt to correct inhumane behavior you have insulted, criticized others religions and beliefs; others whom might actually agree with your intended message. Your underlying message I want to believe had good intentions but the delivery however highly inappropriate.

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.“
——— Imam Bukhari’s Book of Muslim Manners.

“He who makes peace between people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.”
——— Prophet Muhammad (s) as reported in Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Hadith 857.
