I'm here to analyze some statistics. It's not what you say, it's how you say it, right?
Statistically, life-long heavy-smokers of cigarettes have a 3% chance of dying from lung cancer.
Statistically, surveys done worldwide show that 9% of the world's Muslims support terrorism.
So, the vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving, and at the same time, the vast majority of smokers will never get lung cancer.
I'm writing this thread in response to Ramsey's statements about Islam & Sharia Law that were criticized by CAIR and Islamic supporters. The man
was simply stating that Sharia Law was not compatible with the constitution/freedom.
Now I must make some comparisons. One will be religious and one political.
#1, Catholicism has a separation of Church & State, while Islam does not. Abortion is considered murder to Catholics. If a Catholic disagrees, that
person is NOT Catholic anymore. Islam's Sharia Law states that an apostate (someone who leaves Islam) should be killed. If a Muslim disagrees, that
person is NOT Muslim anymore. The difference between the two religions is this: Abortion is illegal in 3 majority Catholic countries (El Salvador,
Malta, and Chile), while apostasy is illegal in some of the largest and most populous Islamic nations (Saudi Arabia & Iran, while in most Islamic
nations an individual would almost surely be killed and the police would look the other way). This shows that there is not a separation of church &
state in Islam.
#2, Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician, is about to go on trail for inciting hatred, because he quoted the Koran. He made a movie showing quotes of
the Koran with acts of terrorism. Now, I personally think of him as a hypocrite simply because he preaches "Freedom of Speech" while wanting to ban
the Koran, but the man makes a lot of sense in other ways. He is a far-LEFT politician, while being labeled as a far-right (by the MSM). He is all
for women's rights, gay-rights, etc. . . which in Islamic Sharia Law is blasphemy. Sharia Law is, plain & simple, against freedom, against women's
equal rights, against ANY gay rights, against any minority-religion's equal rights, and Geert Wilders was just pointing out that simple fact.
I don't want people to think I'm against Islam or Muslims. I have Muslims friends, and they have their little explanations for everything, which
never have convinced me, even though I am open minded. I have no problem with Islam or Sharia Law, as long as it stays on the other side of the
world, and the Muslims in "the West" stop complaining about every little inconvenience.
Muslims in America feel discriminated against. I would love to support them, but the only problem is, non-Muslims in Islamic countries are much, much
more discriminated against. When the American-Muslims begin to protest against the treatment of non-Muslims in Islamic countries, I'll begin to see
them as compatible with the American constitution. But sadly, as I've explained, once they begin these protests against Sharia Law worldwide, they
are no longer true Muslims, just as a pro-choice Catholic is no longer a true Catholic.
If you don't believe that non-Muslims in Islamic countries are more discriminated against than Muslims in America, you are either delusional or not
Two wrongs don't make a right, so I'm NOT condoning discrimination against American-Muslims. Discrimination is bad on both sides, but the
non-Muslims are dealing with harsher realities in Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Pakistan.
Any thoughts? Agree or Disagree?
