I'm willing to bet you've never actually seen or heard anyone use the phrase God is Great angrily...
From my understanding it is actually "God is Greater", insinuating superiority of Islam over other beliefs. The whole concept leads to righteous
anger in any anyone who disagrees... so yes often said in anger.
The Prophet said, Allahu--Akbar! (Allah is Greater) and Khaibar is ruined, for whenever we approach a nation (i.e. enemy to fight) then it will be a
miserable morning for those who have been warned."
From his own mouth...
... or just watch any of the vile muslim execution videos, or any Islamic propaganda... you will regularly here it said with a condescending tone, and
anger at their adversaries.
& neither did I say it angrily, i said it proudly...
Yes... proudly shoved it in my face... righteous indignation can induce pride, and if you want to believe your own tripe then good for you... though
others will likely see the malice in your tone.
All the while your anti-theist sentiment just shines through...
More anti organised religion (jury's still out on the existence of a god), I’m not anti-imagination and accept that there may be a creator, though
in the current world any creator has no bearing on my immediate life or actions (free will, etc)... just don't like people attributing their actions
to make believe... or invoking god's good graces on human suffering as if it has any bearing on the situation.
Plenty of compassion when I ask Allah to bless people...
I care about your personal compassion, not your perceived god's compassion.
How do you feel personally? Why is god's mercy any more valid than your own mercy?
Take responsibility for yourself.
Not that you'd understand, you have a small mind that blames God for things that happen all the while you probably go off and vote for the people who
cause such anger you so vehemently claim is used when saying Allahu Akbar...
I don't blame god for anything (for all practical purposes gods don't exist)... I blame a humanity that looks for external justification for their
actions, rather than looking into themselves and empathising with others in the shared human condition.
There is almost no-one good to vote for... voting for people makes politics a popularity contest... I'd rather vote on policies specifically. I vote
for parties and candidates that are religiously devoid and pushing the notion of community engaged active politics.
Please... Do me a favour...
Spare the holier than thou attitude for someone you can brainwash into hating religion.
Please do me a favour... believe what you like... but in discussions leave your religious catch-phrases out of it.
I'll continue to ask my God to bless the unfortunate.
As He has done for me, many times.
Again... I don't care about your god's blessings... I care about your personal individual compassion and opinions, not your perceived idea about
what "god" may think.
Wait... how did this become a religious discussion so off topic? It's sad to me that a child's suffering gets left by the way-side in favour of
justifying your personal beliefs.
P.S. Your post about propaganda was good... other than the religious barb included at the end. Your opinions are what's important, not god's mercy
which is purely speculation and interpretation.
