As a sculptor I find Islam a complete and irrational anathema to my work, since it takes literally the Old Testament exhortation that "graven Images" are profane.
I understand that some Imams have even gone so far as to condemn Snow Men, and children in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to draw flowers and animals.
Yet most Muslims don't give a damn, like Jews they take such things with a pinch of salt.
Jacob Epstein didn't care much for that particular proscription. There was even a time when Protestants took that very seriously and burned images of Jesus on the cross, throwing out all statuary from the grounds of churches.
Generally most people are decent and just want to live their lives. Even some Christians can be trusted not to come to my door without a burning cross.
For my money every bloody religion should be swept from the earth. Sadly there are many idiots who prefer to peddle hate, like the person starting this thread.
You views above are based on an ignorance of what the ideology of Islam is.
The ideology of Islam is an ideology of hatred, evil and violence, how can a critique of such a hate ideology be regarded as hatred?
Upon research and supported with evidence, it is proven the ideology of Islam is inherently malignant and has an ethos of evil, hatred and violent directed contemptuosly against non-Muslim.
Comparatively, the ideology of Islam is more evil and loaded with more hatred for the 'other' [the 'them' i.e. non-Muslims] than Nazism's hatred for Jews and others.
The critique of Islam is not about Muslims but merely on the ideology itself. The majority of Muslims are good human beings.
The seriousness of the problem is;
Genetically, all humans has the potential to commit evil and violence.
A significant % [conservatively 20%] of all humans are born with an active evil tendency. Thus 20% of Muslims, i.e. there is a pool of 300 [of 1.5 b] evil prone Muslims.
The recipe for atrocities, evil and violent acts from Muslims is this?
- 1. There is a natural pool of 300 million evil prone Muslims who
2. Must comply with the commands of Allah to qualify for eternal life in heave, exposed to
3. An ideology of commands from Allah with an ethos of hate against non-Muslim.
What is CRITICAL within the ideology of Islam specifically is Muslims are 'incentivized' with extraordinary and multi-folds rewards if they warred against and killed non-Muslims under condition of threats [fasadin] which are vague defined.
This is where the evil prone Muslims [ a pool of 300 million] will naturally take up the offer to war against and kill non-Muslims and if they become martyrs that will qualify for higher rewards.
[evidence available for the above claims].
This recipe of hate, evil and violence against non-Muslims had already compelled Muslim to kill >200 millions non-Muslims
since Islam emerged till the present.
Note the latest stats [subject to a margin of error];
In addition, the ideology of Islam has provisions and potential for extremists Muslims to exterminate the human species, since whatever happen to them, they will be well rewarded in paradise with eternal life. Fact is, it is getting easier for interest groups to get access to cheap WMDs [nuclear and bio] in the near future.
Prove to me the points I had present is false, then I will agree with you that there is no real concern with the ideology of Islam.
