Re: Islam do not Condone Killing of Non-Muslims?

Yes I stated "Reputable people AGREE with you", i.e. reputable Islamic Scholars and notable Muslims agree with my view. Note I quoted, Ibn Kathir, Izutsu, and there are many others I have read of. Ismail ibn Kathir ( c. 1300 – 1373) was a highly influential historian, exegete and scholar during the...

True. Those with a vested interested in having the bonkers MMP system (i.e. those who wanted to be in power but knew they didn't have shit show in a proper system) made stupid jokes just like that.

Re: Scandinavian Democracy is the only democracy that works

Being an MP only grants you power as _one_ individual MP. You'd have to pursuade the remaining 50 % MPs to get your ideas through. That's democracy. For example, why on Earth should a party reaching only 40 % of the votes be granted extra MPs effectively making them rule as though the majority vote...

Re: Islam do not Condone Killing of Non-Muslims?

I don't know why everyone is pandering to your mangled 'English'. Your thread title is gibberish, and why the capitals in the middle of a sentence? 'Islam' is singular, and is there any reason for the question mark? It doesn't even look like a question. Well said, Veggie. We all know what a stickle...

Re: Prohibition of drugs. Criminals love to see it. Why do we make their day?

What vote where? I think you will find that if there was a referendum then most people would vote sensibly. Politicians know this, which is why they hate the idea of referendums. Referendums means less money in the pockets of corrupt politicians (which they all are). Big Business interests and krist...

Re: Scandinavian Democracy is the only democracy that works

Proportional representation is even more undemocratic. You have people becoming MPs who might not have got a single vote, simply because they were high enough on the Party List or because their party reached the 5% threshold. It's a sitting duck for nutty extremists. It's also nororiously unstable....
