why do they claim to follow these faiths?

there are Muslims who stay at home and do nothing or work in places in secret
and claim bennifits, and use the money to build homes and other things
by not paying any TAX but sponging off the state, (loads of people do this in the UK and it disgusts me)

in Islam is prohibited to steal and commit other acts

they Lie
they cheat
they call for deaths of others (funny enough its mostly the p***ks that sponge off others)

yet they do this all the time.
and they call them selves muslim.

(we had this huge debate about this at my sisters house)

with chrsitians, i was told dont cast thr first stone or something along those lines, they call for death
They steal
they Lie

same with with other faiths

i posted this video awhile ago but didnt get any reponse

it sickens me people claim to follow a faith but in the end they
dont follow it at all but use it as a smoke screen.


to add this topic isnt about my religion is better then yours
and yours is evil and so on

so if you plan to barge in here with this
go make your own topic or derail another one.

Just because you stand in a garage, it doesn't make you a car.

I can only assume that these people are laying claim to these faiths as a matter of course, to feel part of something larger than themselves and/or just trying to get their "ticket to heaven".

The most spiritual people I know, the ones who live their lives in good faith with decent acts towards others never go around telling people what faith they are....unless asked.

To these wonderful examples of human decency, it's more important to be associated with good works than a mere title.

got to agree,
its better to do good then be someone that tries to bask in their own self glory and to have the nerves to try and look more then what they are as they look down on others.

I totally agree, I've seen quite a few thugs who are muslim lately, some were converted to islam lately, my brother has got robbed a few times lol(bad luck lol), and almost everytime they were muslim. He asks them your muslim why you doing this?

I think some convert because it's the in thing around here, to feel part of something, they think it's like joing a gang, like muslim thugs or something haha.

This is why people should stop blaming religion all the time, it's the man who follows the religion you should watch out for.

I know folks who claim disability and have a slight limp.
Other folks who get checks from the government for kids they adopt, and only adopt the kids for the cash.
People who claim five or so kids on their tax returns to get extra cash back.

They do it for the benefits. That's it.

They are on the same level as the people who preach on street corner about what God hates. Their faith is a tool they use.

some of this is cultural

ill give you an example

at worka person who had previously told me they were a Christian was taking the mick out of me in front of people.

so i pulled him on it and asked why as he told me he was a Christian. he said he was well cos thats what his mum had told him and he was church of England. No i remember my mum telling me when i was small that i was a Methodist.????? id never been to church.
