What a sick, perverted, barbaric religion Islam is:

Outrage in Mideast over IS killing of Jordan pilot - Yahoo News

However, Hussein Bin Mahmoud, an Islamic State-linked theologian, claimed that two of the Prophet Muhammad's revered successors ordered similar punishment for Arab renegades in the seventh century.

While acknowledging the prophet's saying that God alone punishes by fire, Bin Mahmoud cited a Quranic verse that requires Muslims to punish their enemies in kind. Since U.S.-led airstrikes "burn" Muslims, he argued, the IS group must burn those behind the raids.

So having a glass of wine with my girlfriend is an abomination in Islam but burning someone alive is good to go? is that what I'm hearing?
I bet to those true Muslim ISIS members, burning that guy was better than sex.

But the reason he was burned and not beheaded was because he was an Arab and a Muslim.

Ironic you should mention this. I just posted this a couple of days ago:

Today, February 2nd, marks 503 years since the execution of Hatuey, a Taíno who became the first high-profile casualty in the American (native) resistance to European invasion.

Hatuey was from Hispaniola (the island now split between Haiti and the Dominican Republic), which was then called in the Taíno language Ayiti. In 1511, Spaniard Diego Velazquez set forth for the Cuban island of Caobana. Hatuey took four hundred warriors and went ahead to Caobana to warn the population.

Bartholome de las Casas recounts that he showed the Caobanans a basket of gold and jewels, explaining:
(Wiki) :
"Here is the God the Spaniards worship. For these they fight and kill; for these they persecute us and that is why we have to throw them into the sea... They tell us, these tyrants, that they adore a God of peace and equality, and yet they usurp our land and make us their slaves. They speak to us of an immortal soul and of their eternal rewards and punishments, and yet they rob our belongings, seduce our women, violate our daughters. Incapable of matching us in valor, these cowards cover themselves with iron that our weapons cannot break...[3]"

The people of Caobana did not believe Hatuey's message, and few joined him to fight. Hatuey resorted to guerrilla tactics against the Spaniards, and was able to confine them to their fort at Baracoa. Eventually the Spaniards succeeded in capturing him. On February 2, 1512,[2] he was tied to a stake and burned alive at Yara.[1]

Before he was burned, a priest asked him if he would accept Jesus and go to heaven. Las Casas recalled the reaction of the chief:

[Hatuey], thinking a little, asked the religious man if Spaniards went to heaven. The religious man answered yes... The chief then said without further thought that he did not want to go there but to hell so as not to be where they were and where he would not see such cruel people. This is the name and honor that God and our faith have earned.[4]

Hey, they didn't make it up. They had centuries of Inquisition to copy. Except those were usually women.​

ISIS isn't following the Inquisition. They are following the instructions written in the Koran. How do you treat Arab Muslims who side with the infidels? You burn them to death.

Now that's what I call fighting fire with fire lol
"...Bin Mahmoud cited a Quranic verse that requires Muslims to punish their enemies in kind. ..:"

Sounds like the old Biblical "eye for an eye" business. I see a lot of that expressed around here by non-Muslims as well.

It's an ancient tradition. To bad there those who will take it too far.

Sunni man is posing as amirmuwahid76, didn't you know? This way he can cheer openly for ISIS without pretending.

Muslims take their religion seriously. The Bible prescribes the death penalty for offenses such as cursing your parents, and worshiping different gods.Obviously there are no serious Christians left. :thup:

Enjoying a barbacue on his weber grill?
Like a great many goofy converts, he's safely ensconced in Kafir'istan, protected from the horrors of Islamism, exploiting his Western lifestyle and enjoying the advantages of living in the Great Satan.

In the case of things like gay marriage, Christians are quick to cite one passage in the Bible, but when it comes to condemning people to death they pick and choose when to follow the "Word of God".

He's an American, and supports the Constitution.

Fortunately for us, secularism won out. Worst thing is to mix religion into government. Muslim majority countries haven't gotten to that point yet.

Christianity is also 500 years older than Islam. Christians were burning people to death much less than 500 years ago.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, that means that more than three quarters of Christian history involved subjecting people to gruesome deaths for minor offenses.

Burning someone alive is absolutely in the Koran!

.......burning someone alive is reserved for a Muslim who betrayed Islam like one who converted to Christianity...... it's all there!

To understand the mentality of these brutes you have to understand the mentality of a Middle Age savage.

Only God knows what atrocity will they discover next in their "Holy Book".
