But I thought Islam was a "religion of peace." That's just a catchphrase nobody actually believes. | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Christianity has more people and dominates more major countries than Islam. Ergo, more Christians go off to war than Muslims. But not every war is caused by Christianity or Islam, per se.

It remains that 99% of international terror attacks are committed by Muslims and no other religion on earth wages warfare against all other religions as does Islam.

Great point. Here's one of the many "peaceful" verses from the Quran:

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

No other religion has ANYTHING like that in their particular holy texts.

Depends on your definition of "terror attacks" because usually people ignore all of the other militant organisations operating worldwide. I've referenced this before:

Islamic terrorism is the most PROFOUND terrorism, but not the majority. One of the biggest known terrorist groups in the world is a bunch of pasty Catholic/Christian people in Ireland running an armed nationalist resistance movement.

They are not an organized religious group fighting to enforce the Catholic faith on others or killing just because someone is not catholic, that being the distinction.

Well, yeah certainly. If you were to say "religiously based terror attacks" then unequivocally Islam is #1. But on a wide scale of people who use violence to strike fear into the hearts of the public then they have a ways to go. Not that they should go that way at all, but still.

I know, it probably feels like I am splitting hairs, but I do think it is important to distinguish the reason behind the violence in order to work towards a solution, if one can be found.

I know the feeling, seeing as we're both splitting hairs. I'm more focused on the semantics of the word "terrorism" and you more so the root cause.

As a root cause for terrorist attacks, Islam is the leader in that statistic. The non-religious terrorist organisations have no goal that you can really link them together with. The IRA doesn't care about FALN (Venezuelan Liberation Army) or the current political state of Venezuela, nor the latter about Ireland.

All that matters to Islamic terrorists is spreading Islam by the sword. And bomb, and gun.

And that multiplies by the millions the number of potential followers that "could" "COULD" be radicalized, and I speak mainly of the young who are being brought up and practically brainwashed to hate the west. The others it's all about civil war of sorts.

Wolves in sheep's clothing, and the problem is that anything from 0 sheep to all sheep could be a wolf.

Well that's a bad analogy, as that would imply that they are already radicalised.

A better analogy would be "sleeper cells"

Christian has violent aspects, it's undeniable. But for the most part the religion has matured past these violent aspects, starting with the 1600's or so. What I think is that Islam hasn't had enough time to outgrow it's violent aspects, which it will.

Islam has been around for thousands of years. They've had plenty of time.

Over a millennia, under 2.

Still had plenty of time, though.

If you read my comment again, you'll see that I'm not smashing Islam for violence.

I'm smashing the liars who spout that it's a "religion of peace" when they know very well that it isn't.
reply

I no longer believe that. What I'm smashing is the fact that people believe that their own religion is the peaceful one, when it is clear that it isn't.

Human beings are inherently violent. So it would be very hard for any religion to make the claim that there is no violence associated with it.

But I don't have to be able to claim my religion is peaceful in order to point out that the statement "Islam is a religion of peace" is a lie.

Islam's extremists throw gays off of rooftops. Christian extremists hold signs that says "God hates f*gs." But Christianity is the religion of hate. Yeah...

Tbh, I dislike leftists more than liberals. Libs just disagree with conservatives, and that's okay. Leftists shove it down our throats and burn us in hell aka "the justice system" if we disobey their decrees. Their ultimate weapon is deflection.

I agree, there's nothing wrong with disagreeing, that's what democracy is all about. It's the far left who aren't rational.

Yeah. I try to be diplomatic, but it's hard when the other side is blinded by their own self-righteousness of saving humanity from poverty, racism, violence, etc.

In order to cross the aisle in a debate, you actually have to be near the aisle to begin with. Someone once told me, "when people compromise, everyone loses, not everyone wins."

This is the exact selfish attitude that brings us directly into the congressional mess and inaction we've seen these last many years. You will never get everything you want in a democracy, because that's not how it works.
