    No, try again

    and also try again with your grammar, that sentence makes no sense
    I'm sorry - I wrote part of that, then left it for a while, then came back without reading it back - that's my fault
    but in terms of your "no, try again" - why? what's the difference here? nazis hate jews, muslims (at least fanatics) hate gays.

    It was obviously an analogy.

    Also, have you tried talking to a Muslim about how their timeless book is no longer as relevant as it was 1500 years ago?
    Nope, but I can't imagine it being any different to talking to a Christian, Hindu or Jew about theirs respectively.

    All religion is equally silly in my eyes, but it's unfair to blame people for the actions of an extremist minority, regardless of how absurd their beliefs are.

    Do you honestly think that the Muslims living in England, coming from whichever country by choice, want to kill gay people and kill apostates?
    We see posts almost every day here on TSR from people who either refuse to condemn such punishments or who explicitly support their use. There was one only last week advocating criminalising adultery in the UK. I'm not sure why their location makes their views change.

    I'd have thought that the events in Sweden and Germany demonstrate clearly that you can move from Asia or Africa to Europe but still expect to treat women abusively, and the demonstrations with placards calling for "Death to Rushdie" or to those who insult Islam are clear enough (and far too common).

    Just google "death to those who insult Islam" and look at the images the search produces.

    The events in Sweden and Germany were problems, yes, but inflated by right-wing isolationist press.

    It makes good money to sell a piece of paper which blames all your country's problems on "dirty dirty Muslims and refugees".

    I won't deny that some cause a problem, but that 'some' is excessively small. I won't pretend I know the exact number, but it probably doesn't amount to more than 1% of the refugee population, on a very generous day.

    It is extremely unfair to punish the 99% based on the problems caused by the 1%.



    I condemn what Islam says in the Quran for punishments, but Islam isn't the problem. The problem is corrupt governments, like Saudi Arabia, who use Islam as leverage to oppress the opposition - given that the ancient tenets of Islam say it is okay to execute apostates. But the source isn't Islam, because there are many peaceful Islamic leaders out there. It is corruption using Islam as a leverage, and this corruption sources from the rather dictatorial method of ruling these countries.

    We saw the same thing back in Ancient Greece, England, and many other countries. The lack of capacity to develop a country in the middle of a desert is a possible reason for this occurring now.

    Islam is the problem. It is founded on the Koran being the direct word of its god, unchanging, right for all time, and Mohammed being a model of behaviour for all men and all time. The Koran itself specifically forbids anyone adding or subtracting a word from its message and from interpreting it. It is obviously nonsense, but you try and get a Moslem to agree that a word of it isn't relevant now.

    Nobody using the Koran as the source of their moral standpoint can, therefore, move forward from a warlike mediaeval desert scenario without severely taxing their logic and analytical reading skills and ability to spin an argument, like the poster in this thread who claimed there is no violence in the Koran.

    Given that as your moral base, and about half of all UK mosques run by Salafi or Deobandi wowsers, there is no hope in advancing without ignoring the Koran, which Moslems will not openly do out of fear of being labelled and beaten up as an apostate.

    Islam is not the problem.

    There are Islamic governments that function perfectly well with democracy. Saudi Arabia and various other corrupt governments who happen to be Muslim are corrupt because of other means.

    These governments aren't 'corrupt' because they claim to be the true servants of Allah, they are corrupt because the Middle East is a desert, poor development, American interventionism and prosperous militant groups have made it difficult for governments to thrive. Therefore, these governments which consist of Muslims sometimes use Islam as an excuse to punish anyone who opposes the government by claiming that they are apostates - thereby having religious 'justification' and the content of the country's Muslim population.

    I did say this in my post above but you obviously ignored it.

    This is obvious nonsense. Hatred of Islam is not the same as hatred of Moslems.

    The ignorance is strong with this one.
    Well, let's see.
    "Calling Islamic extremism a disease, Saudi Arabia has announced the formation of a coalition of 34 largely Muslim nations to fight terrorism."
    And what this formidable Muslim coalition has been done until now? Bombed civilians in Yemen. That's all.
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ice-Cairo.html (even The Daily Mail knows better than you).
    "A top Islamic State operative of the group suspected of bombing the Russian jet over Egypt has been killed by police in Cairo."
    Great. One killed.
    "Turkey carries out first air strikes as part of anti-Isis US coalition"
    And possibly the last. Turkey prefers to bomb Kurds.
    "Isis: Ten Arab Nations Join US-Led Coalition against Islamic State"
    It ended by several Jordanian airstrikes near Jordanian border.

    That's all what 1.5 billion Muslims was able to do?

Come on, just because they're Muslim, they aren't psychopaths. The Quran was written 1500 years ago, to think that all Muslims today follow it word-to-word is obscene, and the same applies to Christians
    Some do yes.

    But support for laws that would result in the killing of apostates and gay people is rather high alarming high considering

    I can provide you with details but I know you'll just ignore them

    But I don't think you know any Muslims given your last statement so perhaps your time would be better spent in the ISOC thread telling them how they should follow their faith

    That is just a list of political parties, some of them operating in western countries, largely dedicated to bringing Islam into politics, many of them with a specific Islamist agenda. That is not quite the same thing as a fully functioning democratic Islamic state, is it?

    It's a list of democratic Islamic political parties, which within it has Muslim governments, I was hoping the person to whom I replied would look at it and check through to see for himself WHICH ONES IN THE LIST ARE GOVERNMENTS.

    Things get annoyingly confusing when hate speech apologists like yourself butt into a conversation when you have no idea what's going on, especially so when you run away when I make valid criticisms of your xenophobic argument.

    Anything that comes out of Arjem Chaudry's gob, or this...





    Children in Muslim families are taught that "If you leave Islam, you'll be put to death"...

    And then, in comparison, I was brought up in an Irish Catholic family... yet, when I reached 15 and gave up my religion, I was allowed to and was told "You can choose your own path". Hundreds of other children in the UK will relate to this.

    the first is a list of countries that 'claim' to be democratic

    this doe snot make them so and I would have expected more than this form you (Jesus you've just claimed Iran is a democratic country even better it includes Syria )

    http://my.telegraph.co.uk/danielpyco...ink-of-the-uk/

    All of the information has been sourced

    But here show 40% of Muslims want sharia which does kill gay people and apostates

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/200...23/uk.religion


    But here is a rather timely article for you to ignore

    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...-a6960561.html

    I note how some of these countries that kill people for leaving Islam are also on your list of countries you claim are democratic and have no issues.

    Many religions says that if you don't pray or do xyz you will burn in hell for eternity. Why are you singling out Islam? Evidently people in the UK who leave Islam aren't put to death.
