Islam, the greater of the religous evils

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

I must agree, Islam is by far the most evil of all of the religions.

Having said that, I need to explain that I believe that all organized religion is inherently evil, an establishment created to exert some form of control over the masses and build an empire designed to create enough followers of the same belief in order to affect society as a whole. Religion has and always will be a means to gain political and financial goals and mold society into what it believes it should be.

Islam is no different, just a more radical and violent means with the same goal, and, as is apparent in it's teachings, does not try to hide the fact that it condones violence.

As someone in this forum commented earlier, Islam is a fairly new religion, one that has not been in existence long enough to evolve and learn how to live in civilized society, it prays mainly on poor, uneducated people that need some form of leadership to feel like they belong, and it manipulates the poor into believing that the unbelievers are responsible for their lot in life, the poverty, sickness and death.

To the people that administer any religion, it has never been about god, it has always been about power, total and absolute and they will utilize whatever tactics they can to obtain that goal. Islam does it by outward maniplulation and violence, other religions are more subtle.

So I say to the muslims, grow up and learn to live in todays world. I for one will never bow to your beliefs, nor to anyones belief.

God does not want the churches to become rich from the sweat of your brow, nor does he want the masses to blindly follow any one persons interpretation of his word. God is not malevolent, does not expect us to be fearful of him. He expects us to live a life of understanding, tolerance, helping and love, period.

So I say to all religions, you will never convince the world that you are right because the foundation you have created is a fallacy. (this is especially true of islam)

Ever see an agnostic suicide bomber?
