I've read some pretty harsh anti-Muslim posts here. I'm not sure that Islam is any worse than other religions when taken to extremes. Westboro Baptist is horrid. It is not acceptable that radical Muslims are running much of the world, particularly the oppression of women. Luckily Westboro or Hasidics are not running countries. It doesn't get much worse than Zionists in Israel, though.
Any fundamentalist sect is dangerous, IMO. All beliefs have their moderates and their extremists -- it's recognizing those differences, not the religions themselves, where I feel it matters. Moderates are for the most part open and accepting to other belief systems; extremists believe theirs is the right way and the only way.
I haven't seen any lately...i always reply with harsh criticism of any such nasty posts, As Silence is acquiescence!
Just called an idiot on his "jewish" remark...he deleted the post, but then replied As If it were still there.......damn racism makes ya Stupid, lol!
I don't think Islamic fundamentalism is materially different than Christian fundamentalism (for example). What makes it especially problematic is not inherent in the religion so much as that the combination of Islamic fundamentalism and widespread hopelessness and poverty in nations where it is prevalent (both as cause and effect) ... combined with sheer numbers (Islam will in the coming years surpass Christianity on a worldwide basis).
Agreed. There are radicals in any group of people, including atheists. Ideology varies and personalities vary.
As for the Zionists, it has ceased to amaze me that specific religious groups do not seem to remember the lessons of their past. For centuries, Christians have fed non-Christians to the lions. Some Jews have, apparently, not internalized any of the lessons about prejudice and the persecution of WW II and other European pogroms. Of course, the Jews were not kind to the people who had settled in "their" land while they were supposedly in Egypt and had their subsequent supposed exodus. Go figure.
