If you're gonna go after religion, then you might as well attack all of them because they all have their flaws.
First of all, "people should not be allowed to say it." What about freedom of religion? And secondly, how is it a "bad" religion? There's just as much stuff about violence in Christianity and Judaism, and these religions have been used just as much to justify violence. And referring to Anon's reply to CherryBlossom (I'm not going to assume but I think it's OP) above regarding the president of Iran, he has been misquoted several times saying that Israel should be wiped off the map, when in fact he never said this.
oh, I misread the post. But my point about it not being any worse than any other religion that has been used to justify violence still stands. The extreme actions of Islamic fundamentalists do not make Islam a bad religion, nor do they prove that Islam should always be associated with terrorism.
It's "people should be allowed to say it". Freedom of speech. People should be allowed to say anything they want about any religion, just like people can practice any religion they want. If someone dislikes Islam, that is okay.
I actually think if you know enough about it you would find it to be a violent religion. However the difference is that the quaran condones killing of infidels. In fact it's guaranteed entrance to the gates of heaven. Now Catholicism has caused countless deaths during the crusades because the old testament 1000 years ago is similar to the quaran today. So Islam could cause a similar chain of events to occur but now people have nuclear weapons. If WMDs existed during the crusades humans would be extinct. If you stay current you'd know that the president of Iran feels its his responsibility to bring this world essentially to the end for the last coming of the messiah. And I even left out the 150 years of terrorism stemming from Islam.
To the writer of the original post. This is not a site that will accept you for your prejudices. This is not a site for you. I suggest you leave this site and never post again. Its a good thing you posted as anonymous or you would get a lot of hate mail for being so prejudiced, ignorant and hateful.
I'm friends with several Muslims. I've discussed their religion with them and I disagree with their beliefs. Still friends.
I think ALL organized religion is not healthy for humanity. I'm not one to single out a particular religious belief, but both Christianity and Islam have caused this world a load of misery.
After reading this post, I know, as a fact, that you have not met a Muslim (at least not a very good one). Also, by posting something like this, it proves you know very little about Islam.
Maybe you should educate yourself.
How do you classify a certain religion as "bad" to begin with? While I understand some people calling religion in general "the root of all evils", I fail to comperehnd your point. Please elaborate.
Check out my comment above. And yes religion in general is evil.
