Hate, not criticism, is an offence

Surely hatred of people, and the promotion of hatred towards people, is a criminal offence, not the criticism of a religion.

Muslims have no problem describing the Bible as a “corrupt book” and rejecting Jesus Christ as the Son of God, which is an insult to most Christians.

Christians, however, do not (generally) react in anger and become aggressive towards those who criticise their faith and the Bible, they turn the other cheek.

The Apostle John wrote: ‘Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.’ (1 John 2:22)

Therefore, by the Apostle’s own definition, Islam is Antichrist.
