You can't blame an entire religion and it's principles because few misguided use it as a reason to cause unrest(for causes that even they themselves don't really understand). There definitely are people who misuse religions and lead the way for people having prejudice about the whole religion but that doesn't mean the religion itself has "rotten core".

No need to apologize, and I, personally, am not offended. Just tired of hearing about it everywhere. Thanks and hopes for a better world next year.
