About Paris: The Self Destructive Nature of the Left

“The actions of a few radicalised individuals do not represent an entire religion.”
 
I’m afraid this is not entirely true. A religion is a set of institutionalized ideas. Thus the actions of a few or many, may or may not represent what the religion in fact puts forward.
How does one know that the majority of Muslims are not hypocrites to the text of their so called holy book? The majority of Christians are hypocrites, why not Muslims?
The left has fallen hard for the trap of “tolerance”. One does not tolerate bad ideology in the name of respect. Open that damn so called holy book of Islam and read what it has to say about women, or about Christians and Jews. And by all means stop equivocating “religion” with the “religious” or whoever identifies themselves (rightfully or falsely) a follower of a particular religion.  
One more thing: Fully stop using the word “Islamophobia”. It is nonsensical and stupid.

Dear fellow Homo sapiens, or if you prefer conscious mammals! And of course, friends nonetheless: I created my blog in order to speak my very weird mind, mostly about three subjects (as I identify myself and my state of mind with them): Atheism, as I was born in the Middle East and saw and felt the affects of Islam; Homosexuality and equal rights, as a gay man who has tasted the Homophobia and also Sexism in that society; and Liberalism and political philosophy, which I think is a good ground for secular values and criticism of fundamentalism. If you wish, visit and join your state of mind to mine. I hope they don't short circuit!

  1. The extremist muslims are the literal fundamentalist muslims interpreting literally their own Holy texts. So called moderates are soft pedaling the true nature of islam. One only need look at the history of the rise of Islam and how Muhammed himself promulgated and spread his religion of peace in its beginning

    1. Dear KIA,

      Thank you for the comment. I agree with you. In fact, fundamentalists are the ones who usually read their holy books very well, even memorize the whole thing word by word.

      I personally knew this man who forced his four year old daughter to memorize the whole Quran. The poor child couldn’t even read yet.

      The rise of Muhammed was as you say very bloody. I agree with Sam Harris that Muhammed was a conquering warlord. No wonder following his exact example leads to terrorism and murder.

      1. I’m a very recent deconvert from christianity. This kind of stuff freaks me out and angers me even more realizing that the same excuses we use for what we do and believe are used by the Islamic extremists. We have our apologists as they have theirs. We are the same, we just don’t act out anymore. The christian crusades and catholic inquisition are a thing of ancient history

      2. Sam has a particular thing about Islam let me quote from his book ‘ The Moral Landscape.
        Human evil is a natural phenomenon and some level of predatory violence is innate in us.
        Tough stuff but it applies across the board , if its true, to Christians and Muslims.
        I had four children and two of the boys fought like tigers. It got quite dangerous when they were too strong to seperate.

  2. It is the lack of understanding the nature of radicalisation that is the problem. The left is right to preach tolerance but we must beware of the radical.
    The seeds of radicalisation is in us all. It is our evolutionary baggage and enabled us to survive our blood-stained history.
    When God or any ideology takes over the mind humanity is quickly lossed and anything goes.
    History declares the truth ; witches burnt, protestants tortured . At one time the c
    Catholic church burnt english bibles because they were not in latin.
    We have only just become civilised and its far from universal.
    The serious mistake was not putting troops on the ground before the evil took root.
