Reader's view: Neither Islam nor Christianity can claim to be a peaceful religion

The writer of the May 15 letter, “History assures us Islam is a violent religion,” should consult his Bible more — and ponder its peace-loving potential.

Both Christianity and Islam are perched on thin ice and should realize the consequences of their erratic footing. They also should contemplate the mindless asininity of absolutism and its wavering rectitude, not to be taken lightly, as many were, mesmerized so long ago by a little black mustache.
