Simply being opposed abortion is not an "extremist" position. Do you even know what the word bloody means? And how often are Christians killing gays then? Btw the following countries have the death penalty for homosexual acts: Sudan, Iran, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, Afghanistan, Qatar, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Nigeria. Death for homosexuality is a mainstream position in Islam. Homosexuality certainly isn't welcomed in Christianity, but it's a tiny fringe minority who believe you should be killed for it.
It is extremist when it leads to the needless death of women and the abandonment of children. What's more extreme than death? I know what the word bloody means.
How often Christians are killing gays? The number is irrelevant. What matters is that people are being killed in the name of a Christian ideology that says homosexuals are a sin and need to be exterminated. And this is happening free countries. As such, it is a poisonous ideology, just as much as Islam. I don't know what you're trying to get at with the rest of your sentence. I never said that Islam was pure and welcomed homosexuals. My point is that Christianity is just as guilty of it, and other deaths, but you and others like you like to turn a blind eye to it because, well, they are white. If Islam is a poisonous religions that gives rise to extremism, then so is Christianity.
Where are the statistics that show less than 2% of recent terrorist attacks in Europe have been committed by religious extremists?
Shoot, I was sure I had linked to it on my post. Guess not. Here you go. And here's more reasons why Islam is not a terrorist religion.
Large parts of the world have been destabilised and over the past decades by coups and invasions instigated, perpetrated, or influenced by Russia and the West. Central American and South American countries, East Asia, Africa, the Middle East, even some in Europe. Borders were drawn without regards for ethnic and religious divisions, all over the world. The Muslim world isn't special in that regard, so that is a poor excuse.
Right. And look how well that turned out for everyone? Look at the paradise that Central and South America and East Asia and Africa and the Middle East are. I'm not sure what you're trying to say here?
It isn't an excuse. It's a fact. You put groups of people who hate each other under the same banner, and you will have a bad time. And then you go on and continue to bomb the sh*t out of those countries to "get them to behave", and you will have a bad time. I mean, I don't know how you can ignore this or write it off as "poor excuse".
Mind you, the Middle East != the Muslim World. There's a billion and a half of them. In the countries where the historical borders and limits have been respected, or that at least haven't been meddled with by western powers and Russia, the issue is far, far, far smaller. Gee I see a connection.
The foundations of Islam are different to other religions. It was founded and initially spread through conquest by a bloody warlord who persecuted many different groups. This guy is seen as perfect by it's followers. Christianity was founded by a guy who preached forgiveness and helped the less fortunate, it was initially spread slowly by word of mouth. The Bible and the Quran are both pretty unsuitable for modern times, but only 1 of them claims to be the perfect unalterable word of God. 1 is essentially a bunch of stories, the other gives details on jurisprudence and says it must be strictly obeyed.
Sounds like Christianity to me. You clearly do not know anything about Christianity and its spread. Read the history in Brazil, about the Jesuits, and about the crimes they committed against the indigenous population in order to "save" them. Christian has just as much blood on its hands, if not more, than Islam.
Oh and Jesus is also seen as perfect by it's followers. Christianity wasn't founded by Christ for god's sake. He, if he existedm didn't intend to start a religion. In fact, some of the books of the bible were written centuries apart, yet are the word of god.
And holy f*cking sh*t are you kidding me? I take extreme offense to this notion:
The Bible and the Quran are both pretty unsuitable for modern times, but only 1 of them claims to be the perfect unalterable word of God. 1 is essentially a bunch of stories, the other gives details on jurisprudence and says it must be strictly obeyed.
No, sir. BOTH of them claim to be the perfect unalterable word of god. That's why we end up with ridiculous laws regulating women's body and abortion. Because the bible is the word of god. I cannot take anything else you say on religion seriously.
Islam is unique compared to other major religions, in how it was founded, in how it is practiced, in the way it negatively effects the places and people it has widespread influence over. Why on Earth are you so desperate to defend it? It's position on women, minorities, civil liberties etc are all way worse than Trump for example, yet you attack Trump and defend Islam.
Ah. I didn't know all the other religions except for Islam were similar in how they were practiced, founded, and how it affects the places and people it has widespread influence all over. Are you kidding me? I'm not so desperate to defend it. All I want is equal standards. I hate all religions equally, and I view them as a cancer on the world. But I'm not a hypocrite, like you, who extolls the virtues of Christianity while casting Islam in a bad light. In the history of the world, Christianity has been responsible for far more evil than Islam. Why are you so desperate to distance it from Islam?
