Why do Muslims say there's is the " religion of peace" when evidence seems sketchy.

Report as

Islam is no different than Christianity. There are countless verses about love, respect, compassion, empathy, etc. etc. but there are also a few about vengeance, intolerance, punishment, etc. It just depends on which ones the followers emphasizes. Some use the power of belief to push their political goals, most simply use it to make sense out of the world. Lets just hope the latter wins out in both religions.

Hey Cal, I just saw the thread you had going with Tony about Fox...Wow
Hannity is the worst of the hater's. Also The Five spews a lot of hate and lies. You can't go ther with the brainwashed...they just don't see it. I flip back n forth , and sit back and laugh. I even heard good old Rush today in the car today on my short commute. He was telling his follower's not to go on the Government Website to check on Healthcare coverage because they have it set up so they can steal your identity...Then he smoothly went into selling Lifelock for identity theft and told them to sign up and mention the name 'Rush" to get a 10% discount or be sorry later...Lol Good Ol' Rush, has to please his advertizer's to stay on the radio....

Agreed, I just had to sit back and laugh. He was doing a play by play trying to find the hate but was completely oblivious to the fear I had also mentioned. Every other story he was relating was "terrorist this, and terrorist that" =/

Haha! no problem, I'm much the same, my brain is always in 3rd gear but my fingers are often stuck in neutral. :D

@Caluvox, I would feel a lot better if we could just get rid of religion all together. Yeah, they bunch of them spout about love and compassion, but what they all deliver is killing, hate, and misogeny towards women. Even the fabled Mother Theresa that that there was "nobility" in being poor, and tried to stop any actual help that would lift them out of poverty. The new Pope Francis is shaking up the heirarchy, and it's likely we will have another new Pope in a few years, if that long.

I agree Bam. Humans have outgrown their need for gods (if there ever was a "need") Its been a very effective tool in organizing and focusing society towards common goals, whether they be good or bad. Unfortunately it has usually been bad.

Actually most of the people out there dont like muslims as it is the world's fastest spreading religion so they have made a few muslim models that they use to do sketchy things and then muslims are blamed for it. (To be honest there are bad and good people in every religion)

All religions are "religions of death and war." Islam is intended to be a religion of peace, and there are millions here and elsewhere in the world that treat it that way. But there are wack jobs that just want to kill all non-muslims. They have been indoctrinated in a version of islam that is not true to the words of the Koran. (Quaran)

Religious people are never honest with themselves.

Almost all religions are "religions of peace." And almost all religions have extremists who resort to violence to get their way. To condemn a whole religion because of violent extremists is like throwing out the baby with the bath water.

You will likely only get haters to respond. Good luck, and remember that peace at the end of a gun is despotism. any religion which fuses politics with faith will need to be despotic.
