Islam is one of the world's largest religions and it is growing at a rapid rate in countries all around the world. However, with Islamists increasingly willing to kill and wreak havoc in the name of Islam, the religion is coming under severe criticism.

A recent study by a Danish linguist has set out to prove that Islam really is the most violent religion. Tina Magaard compared Muslim texts with Christian, Buddhist, Judaic, and other religious texts to see how it ranked.

Magaard's findings weren't surprising.

"The texts of Islam are clearly distinct from the other religions texts," said Magaard, "as they, to a higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror."

While some imams in Denmark are calling Magaard's study ridiculous and a work of shoddy research, even they aren't denying that the Koran contains more calls for violence and terror against non-believers than any other religion. The imams are quick to point out that the Koran is an ancient religious book and that the teachings are not meant to be taken literally. However, it's clear from statements made by ISIS and other terror groups that many Muslims do try and read the Koran literally.

A recent study found that 75 percent of European Muslims believe the Koran is a book which should be read literally. That means that those Muslims believe, at least in part, that non-believers should be punished according to the dictates of the Koran. Lest we forget what that means here is a quote from the Koran: “So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them.” (Qur’an 47: 4).

There are many Muslims who are trying to do good in the world--that cannot be argued. However, when some try to argue that all Muslims are peace-loving people striving for plurality, that's when you have to call "bull" and stick to the facts.
