I don't want my child to walk away from the lecture thinking that Islam is bunny hugging, blue birds of happiness and rainbows. We all know that this is not the case. I don't give a damn what this particular warm and fluffy sect believes. I don't want anyone to think / know anything other than they're an aberration and that the reality is scary and dangerous and living next door.

I'm still not understanding this.

What exactly is the problem...
1) what is written in the holy texts?
2) what is taught from the holy texts? or
3) what is practiced from the holy texts?

Because your above post doesn't convey the issue very well. I thought this was a simple matter of "hey now, this kind of misrepresents what many Muslims think, or at the least are being taught" but now I'm getting a distinct "they're living next door! they must be stopped at all costs!" vibe.

And as far as this goes;

Are you painting all theists with the same brush, if not, why not?

Agreed.
