What is Islam to me?

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Greg (United States), Jul 11, 2005 at 10:30

Militant Islam is a war against humanity.

It is like any other religion gone bad. Islam is beneficial if you take the good from it what makes you a better person. Life is a blessing, a gift to us all but Muslim fanatics, religious terrorists and Islamic fundamentalists prove the point of how religion can be destructive in nature in the hands of the manipulative, degenerative few.

My view of Islam is that it was never designed to benefit or make a person a better man. In my humble opinion, Islam was drafted up as a form of punishment to benefit the few at the expense of the masses. Islam is based on fear and the repression of women; just opposite of the message of Christianity. Christianity too has had its negative moments in history for sure; let's be clear about that. But Hitler, Pol Pot, the Ayotollah Khomeini and Kim Jong II all promot(ed) their version of a destructive religious ideology; a theology that is enforced by murderous rage, isolationism and the control of the masses through fear of retribution by fanatics and extremists.

. .. if you disagree with Islamists, you are banished or you are outcast. If you speak negatively about Islam you face having radical Mullahs and Imams issue fatawas' of death against you. Just ask Salman Rushdie, Theo Van Gogh and Ayaan Hirsi Ali if they would embrace Islam ever again? Or ask the unlucky women of Somalia, and the many African countries if they too enjoy living under the umbrella of political Islam? What a grand theology that promotes the multilation of women, and denegrates them by forcing them into marriages with Muslim fanatics and low-lifes who are allowed to "lightly" beat them if they sway from the word of Islam. ..
