I'm not even trying.


No, you're not.

I'm not convinced we even commonly use that word 'in the West', much less with any sort of sinister connotation.

Heck, even English bibles in general don't use that word. For the first verse, only the KJV and Douay-Rheims Bible use it, and the second is just the KJV.

Why in God's name (yup, in HIS name) would anyone criticize Islam if the same word in the same context appeared in The Holy Bible of Christianity?


Nobody criticizes Islam JUST BECAUSE they have the word "Infidel" in their vocabulary.

I don't see it as any sinister word.

The world infidel in the West has come to mean some unspeakable crime against all humanity, as if the word infidel has some completely evil and sinister connotation.


In what circles do you find yourself?!
