When complaints about islam are made, this happens:
- Look at christanity
Nope, not applicable. Firstly I am an atheist [well I am a person who hasn't got a religion and doesn't believe in any gods] and secondly, whilst
christianity used to be naughty [nobody is disputing that], they are setting a pretty good example to islam what can happen to a religion when it
grows up. So shut up bringing christianity in as a counter argument, its' stupid.
- You are all racists/bigots
Nope, I strongly believe that the vast majority who are worried about islamic terrorism isn't any of the above. They are just don't want islam in
their lives. Its our right not to follow that religion. But then we see how unbelievers are treated and how people of that religion are going mental,
killing people just willy nilly and we are not supposed to have a say????
- The majority of muslims is peaceloving....yawn
I and many others have never doubted that, going by human nature. We are not stupid. We know that amongst millions of believers, there will be nice
people, shady people, lovely people and complete nutters. Just like everywhere else.
That doesn't mean though that a few of them are actually crazy, a few will be gullible, some will be hating us in the west and some will be assholes.
You will find these kind of people in any group but I doubt that this is any danger when it comes to pottery making classes. However combine these
traits with a violent book that strives to make the world muslim and you have something bad.
- Muslims are speaking up, it just isn't reported.
Yeah, for once it is reported [maybe not in the MSN but if that is where you get your news from then it's your own fault] and all of those muslims
who are speaking up are nice people [see above]. Not just nice but mostly educated and not scared of repercussions.
Holding a placard just isn't enough if the religion is seemingly so important that you can kill for being insulted. Some [like Kurds] are actually
fighting back, which is what I expect. I wish they'd get as riled up over unnecessary killings by their fellow believers as they are over
Everything else, like Imams speaking out shall be taken with a grain of salt because lying and backstabbing is allowed in islam if your life is in
danger. You can lie to an infidel as much as you like, tell them that you care, tell them you want a peace treaty just to ignore it. It is in the
koran. We are all infidels and muslims are scared for their lives at the moment in the western world, so I believe nothing that comes out of a strict
I wan't to see such anger about the 'rogue' believers that they are officially stripped of being muslims, banned from mosques and fear for their
lives from 'nice' muslims.
Anything below that means that a) what ISis are doing is just not bad enough not to call them muslims or b) islam is the best meme ever as it
self-corrects by means of fear.
Either way islam doesn't teach spiritual growth, love for living beings [not just believers], peace or harmony. If it does, it always excludes
infidels, that's not good enough for a 'peace loving' religion. ,
It teaches that the world shall be islamic one day, rather than teach to find inner peace and enlightenment.
