Fundamentalism?? Islam Is An Ideology Not A Religion

Reader comment on item: Islam and Islamism: Faith and Ideology

Submitted by Bill Hazelbauer (United States), Dec 12, 2015 at 13:07

!Islam needs a radical transformation! Which group is more dangerous, more murderous or more radical? The group that preaches Islamic fundamentalism or the group that preaches Christian fundamentalism! Islam does not mean 'peace'. It means 'Submit'. Muhammad and his followers, from the beginning, conquered (converted), spread Islam by the sword. Muhammad had many wives (9), one as young as 9 years old. Isn't this pedophilia? Some of his followers were boy lovers. Isn't this pedophilia and homosexuality? Is Allah the same god as Yaweh? Is the real God confined to Mecca? If Allah is not Yaweh, then Allah is not God!

As I have read, Allah is the pagan moon god, chief of the gods in Mecca. In America, we have accepted and respected Muslims, but not the customs or laws, such as Sharia law or restrictive laws on women that conflict with our societal and Constitutional laws. The birth, & sacrificial death of Jesus, the son of God, and the coming of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem after His death, inspired His disciples to spread Christianity to all corners of the world, at the cost of their lives, which were given gladly. Conversion to Christ is by choice and persuasion and not at the end of a sword, or through physical or mental coercive force. Belief in Jesus promises eternal life in an ethereal, beautiful, peaceful heaven with joy everlasting and no need for worldly pleasures. Faith in Jesus gave birth to "The West", its art, music, culture and its promise of peace to all men of good will. Man is prone to sin, therefore, he has need to confess, renounce his sins and seek forgiveness and salvation from God through the sacrificial blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross at Cavalry. America was founded by converted followers of Christ.

Our Constitution and our Declaration of Independence are based on the tenets of The Judeo-Christian bible. All who come to America to be citizens must be willing to assimilate and follow the laws of our Constitution. All faiths, ethnicities and peoples are welcome; however, their customs cannot challenge the laws of our Constitution. Those who serve in our representative government, must respect our Constitution and the Judeo-Christian bible upon which it is based. Those who serve must take their oath on the bible out of respect. At this time in history, unless Islam has a radical Reformation and drops its ideology of Islamic Theocracy, it is a threat to world peace and civilization itself!
