I Am American, and I Respect Islam | BlogHer
Islam is not a religion. Like zionism it is a political movement that calls itself a religion to deflect criticism.
I am American and I don't.
I am a n Amerrican and I respect your right to religion, but i don't respect your call to kill those that practice free speech that you do not agree with. You have committed an act of terroristic threatening and you can and will be reported.
If we can't respect the rights of others to kill in the name of their religion, is there really any hope for us?
I am American and I dont like religion period.
I don't respect Islam, or for that matter, any other religious belief or practice. In particular, I think Islam is an archaic, tribal, misogynist and illogical set of beliefs created by a middle eastern lunatic. I have nothing good to say about your faith, and have no plan to do so at any point on this board.
In spite of that, I absolutely support the right of people to believe according to the dictates of their conscience, and practice those beliefs--as long as their practice of their faith does not infring on other people--regardless of how stupid I might consider them.
You probably don't want to get me started on Christianity, Judaism, Mormonism, Scientology, or Jehovah's Witlesses.
I'm not a fan of Islam...
But I loathe the people who cower before them, pissing their legs and crapping on the Constitution to do so.
After being interested in islam enough to get instruction from the imam at the nearest mosque, islam has no real claim to exist in civilized society.
History is full of stories of religion using violence as a means to an end. Islam is not unique it is just the current one being used to perpetrate violence.
