Reader comment on item: Is Turkey's Government Starting a Muslim Reformation?

Submitted by Lame Cherry (United States), Jun 3, 2008 at 14:31

While the children of Esau in Turkey have always been a dynamic people, one can wonder if the hadith "reformation" will make any difference considering the base document of the koran is a book of judgment, doom and hell.

Without meaning to step on anyone's toes, the fact is the Protestant Reformation was the only one which actually brought people closer to God without wholesale slaughter in the reformers being judge and executioner like the Vatican was against them.
All "good ideas" at the start from fascism which is government control of business to employ societies and prosper them soon enough have a Nazi expand the original idea like Stalin expanded Marx utopia and the net result was 40 million dead Ukrainians.
Even in America, you can see the founding Fathers original intent bastardized in the aborticide of children in the millions, that is hardly life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The same foundations of the Torah and Tanakh were taken by exiled Jews and coupled with the Babylonian mystery religions and Talmudic "interpretation" began through some very shortsighted people to start terming the Virgin Mary a whore and Jesus a bastard, not for the reason they were, but because these certain sects could not compete with Christianity as Jews in numbers were converting.
One can find the Shabbatai Zvi sect which is a false messiah sect followed by numbers of elitist "Jews" in Europe and America who follow a guy who taught sinning was the way to bring about God's kingdom on earth.

All sorts of additions cause major problems from either a God inspired idea or the good intentions of people. Iran now is starting to buckle under the Islamocommunist dogma imprisoning people for thinking or executing them. Young people in Iran are now converting in numbers to Christianity. It is gotten so bad for Ahmadinejad that he wants a law to execute them as inquisitions are now going on just like in Europe centuries ago.
Even in Russia, Vlad Putin was seen on a holy day for the Orthodox Religion there appearing from behind the door of resurrection as a "god like figure".

This same "god" scenario was Nimrod of the Bible to Alexander the Great who literally boozed and sodomized his brilliant empire into ruin and his heir was slaughtered as an infant.

So with that entire background, perhaps the children of Esau might have a good idea in ridding Islam of human bigotry in hadith, but as stated when you have document like the Talmud which refers to people as subhuman or other thesis it is like trying to build a religion of love out of a document which is one of scorn.

It would be wonderful if everything from the American government would toss out all laws since 1776 to Turkey and start over allowing people real liberty, because the wisdom of mankind as Ecclesiastics shows is flawed. But if you have Norse mythology which states you bash someone over the head with an ax in how one decides if they are human or a spirit, how does one reform that?
A smaller axe?

Islam is flawed as it is a male generated religion without any of the female qualities of compassion, love and caring with redemption. All other world religions incorporate that quality as a better angel of human nature to be striven for.
One can throw out all of the hadith and one is still left with the koran which is an incomplete document taken from memories of stories Muhammed had on trade expeditions gleaning both Hebrew and Christian ideals.

Muhammed apparently psychologically wanted to be punished for his weaknesses and deemed martial order was the only way one could control Arabs of the Ishmael line. This is what he chose was best for him in God. God though is love, compassion, redemption, adoption and caring. This is what the hadith and Islam have to reform, because in all honesty the majority of Muslim parents are more compassionate than the allah they are taught to follow.

God bless.
