Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: Active and Passive Muslims

Submitted by donvan (United States), Oct 11, 2007 at 14:32

Individuals who have internalized the mythology and hence self identify themselves as "Muslim" , are on the path to "Muslim Personality Disorder". All "Muslims" internalize the core dogma of the mythology. The acceptance of a mythology which demands the taking of human life in order to gain access to paradise, is complicit simply by the acceptance of the mythology. Unfortunately, there are no "Passive" "Muslims". The danger is that the identification of the mythology becomes obsessive, and leads to homicidal / suicidal ideation, expression of anger and hostility, and the free floating hostility towards Jews,Christians , infidels and others, feelings of perpetual victimhood, and grandious delusions of taking over the world.Since the rewards for males are greater than for females, the identification and internalization is greater as is the danger, as we have seen demonstrated with the mass murder /suicide killers. There seems little doubt that the mythology, because of its advocacy of the taking of life as a basic tenent, is a danger to all, and deserves elimination.
