Weezer Posted February 24, 2019 Share Posted February 24, 2019 I know I have seen a thread here about Islam, but can't find it tonight. So I'll post here. In the 1980s, in the process of de-conversion I read a little about Muslims/Islam, but hadn't thought much more about it until recently. Got to thinking about why some people think the religion is so dangerous. I thought they surely are overreacting. Found my old reference book from the 1980s, but it was very brief. Googled some info, and ordered the book, "Nothing To Do With Islam", by Peter Townsend. After just the 1st 3 chapters, I realized why people are concerned. If we ex-christians think the Bible is convoluted, it is simple compared with Islam "scripture". Their loyalty is fierce, they evidently do not have a universal "golden rule" as in Christianity and other major religions, and they have a clause that allows deception if it benefits the religion. And world wide they use government to protect their religion when possible. I am quickly seeing why there is concern about them entering the country and grabbing government positions. As history shows, there is nothing more destructive than fierce religion mixed with government. If you haven't done so, look into the situation.
