I'm afraid that there are those that just won't accept anything but their own preconceived ideas. I think the reason for my anger is that these people aren't commenting on information I am presenting, but defending a position that I haven't even brought up!

You have just gotten a tiny taste of what it's like to be Muslim in America. There are surely worse places to be, and in fact the US is wonderful for its Constitutional protections of religious belief, but the people you mention do nothing themselves to make it pleasant here. Many or most of them have no clue they're bigots, which makes them hard to reach, and the ones who know what they are don't care, which makes it pointless to try reaching them. It can be frustrating.

By the way, here's another link re the common distortions inflicted on the Holy Qur'an by quoting from context.
