Not to me they don't. Most Christians I know are pretty crappy, boring people. Most Muslims/Hindus/Jews that I know are pretty cool. But that has no bearing on their religion. I reject them all as foolish. Although you seem to be implying that Islam is an inherently violent religion and all that...due to the Koran. Now, I'll admit that I haven't perused Islamic verse ever and am IMHO quite ignorant of much of religion in general, but I'm willing to bet that religion really doesn't have much bearing on reality. In actuality most people are quite docile. Iran is quite a liberal nation when compared to many other in the ME, yet I'm pretty sure it's solidly Muslim. I don't care what they believe, no matter how dumb, just don't force it on me, or govern me by it (or fight a war against me with it).
