Sun, 01 Oct 2006 01:15:02 -0700Is it true that fundamentalists' belief in God, or at least the certainty of the belief behind religion, is responsible for the extreme violence we see in the world today and have seen through the ages?

Is Islam completely intolerant of any moderate voice in this modern age? Should all conversations about faith be subservient to those with a more "rational" and secular viewpoint?
