I do have respect for peace loving Muslims, some are fighting against terrorists with America. However, in my opinion, the teachings of radical Islam are not compatible with America's system of government. They want to take over the world in the name of Islam. Try converting to Christianlty in a Muslim country and see how tolerant they really are.
So if Christians do not follow Christianity, it detracts something for the actual religion? Of course not. Islam is there, if people want to use it to hide behind it to carry out terrorim - Allah will know this and punish them. But the fact remains that nothing people who call themselves "muslims" do, will detract anything from Islam.
