Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Ask Trump when he prays to the baby Jesus if he's just getting on, or is he responding to rabid rightard Xians, who want to build a wall against other "brother Xians". You really don't know the difference between a Christian and someone who only says they are? And you don't know the difference betw...

Re: Why the USA is not and never will be Democratic

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Article_Two_of_the_United_States_Constitution From what I gather, you assume the United States is not democratic because it has governing institutions, and democracy cannot exist without governing institutions. But what if people actually want governing institutions? I...

Re: A Christian is ...?

As inferred from the Gospels, The Gospels have no concept of "christian" in any sense. A Christian is a person who; 1. Accepts and believes in Jesus as son of God and his teachings [John 3:16, etc.], Not necessarily. One reading of the Gospels says he was a mortal man 2. is Baptized accordingly, No...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Judge not by words but by deeds. As an axiom for judging AMONG professing followers of any ideology, to decide who's authentic and who's not, that makes perfect sense. But to judge the moral quality of the ideology itself, it doesn't make a lick of sense. Moreover, you can't even know how to "judge...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Judge not by word but by deed. Most Muslims are simply born into "Islam". Whilst I agree that Islam is violent, it is less so than Judaism, and most Christians are perfectly happy to take their instructions from the Old Testament sadly. The Christian right in the US, in particular, seem very keen o...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Well, if that's your argument, then what is this "Christendom" entity you blame for all the world's evils? It's not "Christ"; it's a "kingdom" set up by religious men, for their own reasons. Well, if that's your argument, then what is this "Islam" entity you blame for all the world's evils? It's no...

Re: Why the USA is not and never will be Democratic

On the matter of executive authority. I think American's problem is her constitution which was written as an alternative for a system led by a King; based on the British system of governance. The President took the powers of a King, but added more power. He has always had more power than any king si...

You make my argument for me. Thank you. Well, if that's your argument, then what is this "Christendom" entity you blame for all the world's evils?

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

You mean you don't think it's actually true? Or do you mean that it's true, but you don't think it matters, for some reason? I mean that blaming 1.8 billion people in "Islam" for the actions of a small number would force us to consider what we have done in "Christendom". That is the game that we wo...
