    • J.B. Hunter, I don’t know why you developed this strong hatred towards Muslims. If you are given a chance you can wipe out all Muslims from the face of earth. Mind you there are some good Muslims as well as bad Christians. Why don’t you separate Paul from Barnabas? most of the bad Muslims out there came from Boko Haram who are mainly from North East. You don’t want to compare your southern Muslim brothers with Boko Haram Muslims, they have little knowledge about religion and they are just being evil. Brother, you need to get down off your high horse and come up with an idea that will make us live in sweet harmony.
