I didn't "bash" anyone, I simply posted bible verses. The only thing I typed was "I'll leave these bible verses here Posting bible verses is bashing the religion?


Don't think me a fool. You used Christianity as a decoy because you think making that comparison is legitimate and equal.

It isn't.

Actually, no. It isn't.
It is about an inherent incompatibility between mainstream Islam (?) and western liberal values(?).

Two monolithic things.

You said "You're under the impression that I follow idiotic fairy tales."

You are the one bashing Christianity

There is no decoy, only scripture.

There are no other facts that I can post about God other than what is in the bible

Except I'm not trying to be coy about it.

I have zero respect for religion. It serves only to hold back human progress.

There are no "facts" about god.

I've never seen a problem with mainstream Islam in the uk. I've seen problems with extremists and people who want to cause trouble.

The 2 aren't mutually exclusive.

I respect your point of view and will not claim to be able to offer you facts of any gods existence

I have had no experience with Islam (that I am aware of).
I did not mean to imply that there is an inherent incompatibility, I was restating the premise of the thread.

It's easy to fall into a trap discussing scripture. Scripture isn't the problem.

It's practice that is the problem. 1400 years of unchanged ideology and the modern world, a tale of incompatibility, that is the problem.

No. it's because I don't associate mainstream Islam with terrorists and trouble makers. Just like I don't associate all Christians as members of the KKK or westboro baptist church.

Then you don't understand how Islam becomes a factory of ideological terrorism.

Maybe you should research what mainstream Islam believes about how society should function before you dismiss the connection between mainstream Islam and the terrorism it enables.

There is no reason that Muslims should not be capable of blending into North American society.

I guess we should do the same with Christians too. Oh, and Jews. Don't forget the Catholics.

You can view all religions as a terrorist group if you judge based on the extremists and their texts.

Aside from ideology and culture that is.
