You say that as though it's a bad thing!

Don't you know it's a blessing to even BELIEVE in Allah?!? And you question the motives of his followers??

You don't understand! You may not Like to kill in the name of Allah, but you must do it anyway, for as the holiest of holy books says:

Quran (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."

All hail the religion of peace! /s

Pretty sure every other religious text has the same bullshit, it's just worded differently.

The difference is the koran was written by the founder of islam, so you can't really modernize it without saying that mohammed wasn't a prophet.

Every other major religion has undergone a reformation which purged it of almost all that crap.

The Quran is medieval, most other religious texts are much older, from antiquity, and even they are far less murdery and rapey. Then again, not many religious texts were written about warlords.

An example being that the Quran says it's ok to rape your enemies stolen wives in front of their own husbands/families, provided they not members of Islam.

Not necessarily, some have it, others have it but don't follow it anymore.
