    You could have phrased it better, but in an essence: yes.

    Islam is a religion which hasn't evolved as much as Christianity has, and was never as thought-provoking or peaceful as Buddhism. It's still extremely dogmatic and holds a very strong place on most followers lives. Such constant interjection into the lives of it's follows will inevitably lead to fanatical behavior (like the cult of personality with Muhammad) and problems with integrating with non-members.

    Muslims are actually told to integrate in non-Islamic countries, and that they are to abide by the law of whichever country they reside in. Problems with integration with non-members are more noticeable because there's less Muslims in the contexts of such cases so the proportion is higher.

    All the Abrahamic religions are extremely dogmatic and backwards. It's not the religion that's changed, it's peoples' obedience that has.






    But let's phrase the question another way. Does Catholicism have more of a predisposition than other religions to turn its followers into pedophiles? The answer would be the same; no, and the actions of some do not speak for the actions of others.



    But the **** do i care? Religion is the worst. Spirituality is the way to go.

    it has a lot of passages within it describing killing of 'unbeleivers' apostates, sgregation, opression and threats of damnation, so its understandable impressionable people can be influenced by that. you could argue things like the old testament have these elements too seeing as both came form similar antiquated eras. But then i think christianity in general has evolved to flourish in the modern era, and islam doesnt allow this (it would be termed as 'bida'- innovation, which is prohibited.

    Islam is a tribal system of goverance, it served the function in ancient times of giving a bunch of quite violent people something to fall in rank and file under- so in that respect has served a purpose, maintining some semblance of society. but the modern world has moved on and demostrated civilisation can flourish without archaic backward and fearful rituals and dogma.

    that said there are probably millions of muslims who already alter practice of islam to suit their modern needs, such as using the internet, dating, mixing sexes, social media, business and finance etc so thats not to say muslims themsleves wont eventualy change islam too.

    Lol, 'violent savages' is quite a bit of an exaggeration but I'd say the common Muslim is a lot more likely to be strict in their beliefs than people from other religions.
    Whether that is a good or bad thing is up to you (I don't see it as a good thing but then again, I am biased).

    Yes,

    You will find those with a profound knowledge of the Bible tend to be Historians and Christians by association.

    You will find those with zero knowledge of Juadaism but are jews, and and cling to their identity, are zionists.

    You will find those with a profound knowledge of the Qu'ran and Ha'diths are emir's, part of the mujahideen or are Scholar's denied entry to the west.

    Islam attracts horny perverted rapists with its idea of many virgins waiting for them in heaven.
