My Dear Sweet Friends,
We count Islam as being amongst the "Seven Churches" of the Book of Revelations in the Holy Bible. Islam, Hinduism, Buddism, Taoism, Shamanism/Voodoism, Judaism, and Shinto art the "Seven Churches" that possess seven Angels and art watched over by both of the Christs, both advents of the Christ, the one upon the right and the one upon the left of these seven churches.
Islam is the religion of beauty in our opinion. It is one of seven that serve the purpose of our earthly existence, that is, the establishment of heaven upon all the Earth, or, as we art want to say; the transforming of our "hell-world" into another "heaven-world" amongst other "heaven-worlds".
The negative connotations in relation unto Islam is the result of the west serving false gods.
