Pastor's words aren't source of Muslim violence

I TAKE issue with Gary Spedding's recently-published comments about Pastor McConnell.

To suggest that Mr McConnell's words are the source for violence against Christians is a falsehood.

Islam teaches the faithful adherents, directly via the Koran, to make war, slay, besiege and enslave Christians (and Jews) wherever they discover them.

The Koran's words are to be taken seriously by all Muslims (not a fringe extreme) and pre-date Mr McConnell's words by several hundred years.

Therefore, Mr Spedding's analysis is fundamentally flawed.
