Like many of you, I have noticed the large amount of anti Muslim threads popping up on ATS right now. Some examples:
Why the West Should Fear Muslims
Does America now have an Islamic commander and chief?
The Ayatollah Khomeini’s Book: Sex with Children and Animals
Is Sweden Being Destroyed?
This has to stop.
At the moment, we are two opposing sides, scrabbling with each other in an uncoordinated way, rather like a street battle. There is no cohesion, no
stricture, it's chaos.
This is my I've made this thread – in response to all the anti Muslim threads that have spouted from ATS recently. Wether you are anti, pro or
neutral - I would like to hear your views.
So join this thread and voice your opposition to the vast amount of religious bigotry that is surfacing here on ATS. Wether you agree with Islam or
not, do we really want to be the kind of place that slams a religion just because it's in fashion right now?
Can't we separate ourselves from the herd and use reasoning and intelligence to talk our way thru problems rather then engaging in flaming? (which I
admit I'm also guilty of)
ATS is my home – as it is for many of you. I don't want to see this place over-run with anti anything. Already ATS has suffered by association
with threads like this. People who see the recent posts have seen a lot of anti threads, and this has influenced their decision to join. It's
happened to me while I was showing a friend this site. This place is a place to discuss conspiracies and other related matters. It is not a place to
spread dis-info about religious groups.
I would like to ask – what is it about Islam that makes some people uncomfortable? I live with two Muslims and have found them to be as normal as
anyone else. So what is it that makes people keep posting these types of threads?
I've posted this thread in the Philosophy and Metaphysics section, because I believe it is the best place to have a rational, informed discussions
about the phenomenon behind the anti religious views at the moment.
I would also like to recommend Your Opposition to Hatred on ATS
by Astyanax. Sign up
and pledge your opposition to the hatred that's going around ATS. Or you could if it wasn't shut down.
