Reply to AMK - You misunderstood me.

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by John Bastile (Malaysia), Dec 1, 2005 at 20:47


You must have misunderstood me. I didn't accuse Islam of being Satan's religion. I merely ask you to pass the 10 criteria test. If you think that after you've read the 10 criteria and felt that it reflects your religion, then you should be the one asking yourself. What did I say is wrong?

I merely quoted that in Satan's religion, if there is one, there must be indicators:

Such as - the people who he visited would feel suicidal. I didn't say anything about Islam. Do you? Why? Did your prophet want to kill himself from jumping down from a cliff? Twice?

All of us know why Satan rebelled. He rebelled because he was jealous/angry that angels are 'placed' below 'humans'. Therefore, in Satan's religion, he would desire to 'degrade' humans. That's why, in Satanism, human sacrifices and orgies are usually practiced. Thus, the temptations of Satan would include carnal pleasures and appeal to basic animal instincts. Promises of sex, power and food would be his - here on earth as well as his "Garden of Paradise". God did not create humans so that they enter a heaven to enjoy sexual pleasures of perpetual virgins, rivers of flowing wine and stay in big mansions. This carnal promise is devoid of any spiritual dimension. It brings down the dignity of being human. Did I say anything wrong? I didn't say that the religion is Islam. Do you? Why?

All of God's creation is good and beautiful. I do not imagine any of them to be unclean and not worthy to be touched. If anyone say that some of God's creation is unclean or dirty, that person is either saying that part of God may be unclean or dirty or that person is Satan. Did I say that it is your religion? Why?

I said that Satan would want to hide the beauty of God's creation. Is it wrong?

I mean, why would God create a woman with beauty and then mandate her to hide her beauty and to only reveal it to a person - her husband, at times she may have no choice in selecting, and her husband may have a chance to marry more. Why? Is your religion like that?

I said that Satan enjoys the destruction of mankind. Thus, war is Satan's favorite pastime. His religion will be militant. Rewards for those who fight and die in battles. Punishments for cowardice and deserters. Am I wrong? Why so upset? Am I referring to your religion?

Sex is admittedly something to consider. Sex is known to ALSO cause sufferrings if not participated properly. I'll allow each society to define "properly". Anyway, I'm sure that in Satan's religion, sex will feature prominently. Am I wrong in saying this?

Therefore, I warn people to select their spiritual leaders carefully. You know, some catholic priests were sued for pedophilia. Some buddhists monks were derobed after found of having wives. In happens. Satan penetrates into all religions. What is important is that Satan does not have to penetrate into his own religion. He will "divinely sanction" it!! His holy books will contain divine verses to allow his prophet to have sex with anyone he desires - whether children, adopted son's wives, slave girl and war captives. To sanction protitution, there will be allowance for temporary marriages with easy process for divorces. Why are you so upset? Your religion has divine verses to excuse your prophet? If yes, why? What lessons learnt?

The essence of Satan is hate and his ultimate destination is hell. Am I wrong it saying this? AMK, you disagree with me? Why?

Satan's holy book will contain hate verses for all those who do not follow Satan. He will call for conversion or killing of unbelievers. He will have vivid and fanciful ideas about torturing people. His ‘holy' book will be filled with promises of torments. Why so upset? Your holy books filled with hate verses and torments? Why?

You asked "How did you jump to the conclusion that Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) died without fulfilling Allah's orders and will? Is it conclusively proven that he died due to poisoning?"

Well, first of all, I did not claimed that Satan's religion is Islam. Since, you felt that way, I shall entertain you. When Mohammed was dying, he asked to write something more so that his followers will no go astray. However, he didn't managed to do that. Therefore, his work in incomplete. We know not what he wanted to write or confess.

Tabari IX:174 "The Messenger's pain became so severe he said, ‘Give me pen and paper so I may write a document for you so you will never go astray after me.'"

Tabari IX:175 "Bring me a tablet, or a plank of the shoulder blade and an inkpot, so that I can write for you a document, after which you will not go astray.' Some said, ‘The Messenger of Allah is out of his mind.'"

Dear AMK, why are eyes and ears sealed from the truth? Everyone is entitled to believe that his religion is superior and the only one. If not, that the person will leave it. Therefore, I believe that you are entitled to have the believe that your religion is true, somewhat arrogant in it. Nonetheless, I've met people of other religion being equally arrogant and instrusive. Fair game.

It is sad to learn that millions of people perished in religious wars since time itself. People died in the name of Zeus, Apollo, Mars, Jupiter, Nebuchadnezzar, Buddha, Kali, Vishnu, Yahweh, Jesus and Allah.

All claiming to have sole franchise rights to sell God's products and services. All claiming to have exclusive tickets to "Paradise" - the visit of a lifetime!!

Such rewards, hence the competition.
