Humanism is right, Islam is wrong

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Humanism (United States), Apr 8, 2007 at 02:51

You're absolutely right! Humanism is the way to go forward.

Many Muslims are excellent people - very nice, & very kind. But make no mistake in thinking that Islam promotes peace. You have to read the Quran to see for yourself the message of hate and violence. Most non-muslims and many muslims just assume a religion can't spread violence. It is contrary to our notion of secularism and human rights. But if you actually read the Muslim scriptures (quran and hadiths), you'll see how wrong it is!

The argument that Islam was good for its times is ridiculous, because Islam is based on the fact that it is the final message and it can never be changed. Islam has some good that is just a reflection of the message of earlier religions. It has a lot of bad and was a religion of barbarians that destroyed great civilizations such as Iran, India, etc.

The only 2 religions that even today agree entirely with the Human rights are Buddhism and Hinduism (the West has painted a wrong picture of the caste system and idols and don't know that Hinduism is monotheistic, which many not very intellectual Hindus themselves don't realize. Still, a bad Hindu may think his religion is not monotheistic, not kill people in the name of religion).
