Applying logic to Islam

Reader comment on item: Is Sisi Islam's Long-Awaited Reformer?

Submitted by Sirocco110 (United States), Jan 20, 2015 at 19:38

1st. We have a "religion" based solely on the personality and supposed utterances and "visions" of a single individual. And apparentyly there are no concurrent or contemporaneous written recordings of his so called "prophecies" and visions. Every thing seems to have been passed down word of mouth.

2nd. Apparently we do have some historical idea of the "prophet's" historical character and actions, the majority of which would be deemed offensive in modern day Western Society.

3rd. Those who revere him and view him as the infallible messenger of God are those that most in the West consider Radical; a perception that is foolish and displays incredible ignorance of the foundations of this so called religion and why its adherents have a propensity toward bloodthisty violence in spreading their "gospel".

4rth. The Western world has become so anesthetized by political correctness propounded by Utopian Marxists (who for the most part are atheists who have little understanding of the nature and power of religion) that they can't begin to understand the threat that is facing them. The West is in denial. On the one hand are the so called Christians, most of whom I suspect attend church twice a year - Easter and Christmas, and the atheists who seem to dominate Western society at this point.

5th. There are NO moderate Muslims. They exist only in the minds of wishful Western thinkers. True Muslims immulate the character, nature and teachings of their so called prophet. Not to do so would be akin to Catholics denying the validity of the Pope, or Mormons denying the validity of Joseph Smith.

6th. There are two kinds of "Moderate" Muslims: those who fear for their lives if they reject Islam and those who will remain "Moderate" until they are in the majority in their political neighborhoods.

As Mr. Pipes has pointed out the poo pooing of radical Islam by leaders of countries where Islam dominates should be viewed with skepticism.

Wake up! We are at war.
