A botched up religion

Reader comment on item: Islam, Israel and Insurgents

Submitted by L. Manohar (Germany), Aug 24, 2011 at 05:16

Regarding being a muslim or whatever religion:

1) A person must be at least 40 years old to decide to which religion he belongs to. So much time on the earth is necessary (but may not be sufficient for some) in order to achieve some spiritual and intellectual maturity.

2) He must be able to read and understand the text(s) of the religion an its real history in their original or in correct translations which do not leave out or dress up the ugly or evil parts

3) He must be able to leave the religion without fear or being persecuted.

How many can claim to be muslims in this sense? What we call muslims are just mental slaves who are ready to kill or die or lie or pray or argue for islam out of fear or indoctrination or bribery. Islam and muslim are botched up concepts and that leads just to anger, irrational behaviour and fascism and violence among the so-called muslims.
