Joke of the Day! What is Islam?

"A shining beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance and racism".

Not hardly likely!

The video is actually a very well made whitewash of what the religion truly represents today. Almost makes it appealing, until you remember how repressive, intolerant, segregational (is that a word?) and racist they are. Would they were as tolerant as they claim to be.

I found this on the website of a virulently anti-Israel Palestinian housewife.

What a wonderful compilation of all the good things in their writings and as the basis for their religion. Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if they spent their money feeding the poor and doing Alla's good will rather than strapping on bombs and blowing others up? What would we feel if they blew up Pornographers with IED's.
I think most unions were very important to establish rules and fairness. I think they have almost outlived their usefulness. I have a few guns and won't register them because I think it is gun control. I do have problems with automatic or assault weapons and their need. I also think that if you break the law you lose the right to own,carry or use a gun. Get out the vote, no matter who wins it can't be much worse.

Do you have a link to the web site? What a crock this video is lol.

Yeah, it is a wonderful compilation,MUD, but so totally unrepresentative of Islam today. Prior to the past few decades, I don't ever remember thinking twice about Islam, as I have always believed we are free to choose our spiritual path. But it has now become and *in your face* religion, and that's where I draw the line. I agree with you rather than killing each other and westerners put some of that Allah-love into doing good deeds. Aint gonna happen.
As for unions, ours in particular, are very important. Actors have always been taken advantage of and we'd be working in dangerous and terrible conditions without them. and probably for no pay. but I'd probably agree with you for most of the other ones. I wrote a post about the ridiculous unioninizing of Dominos Pizza workers.

BCF, do you want the woman's blog address? The video is actually on YouTube. Pretty wacky.

It's not just Islam.

“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” - Steven Weinberg.

well, Justin, Islam is the most repressive, intolerant, racist religion there is.

I think organized religion has problems, because of its divisiveness, but Atheism has it's own intrinsic problems, as well. Without some moral guidlines, which the Judeo/Christian theology has given us, the world would be an even greater evil mess.
