How Religious Are They?


This post should prompt all kinds of responses……most of which will have nothing to do with the link or the premise of the piece but rather rants about the terrorists are coming for your head or your children or they all want you to live under some law or another……which is a pathetic argument because these very people are attempting to force their beliefs on others….the very same thing as they are accusing others of wanting to do…..

Sorry I digress……

Everyone seems to believe that these extremists in ISIS and AQ are somehow a form of radical religious belief….but in reality just how religious are they?

This is a short video that answers that question……

“Islam has a problem.” that’s the often repeated phrase following attacks carried out by those who claim to be doing so in the name of religion.

A look at some of the attackers, however, shows that many may actually not have been motivated by religion at all.

In this week’s Reality Check, Mehdi Hasan challenges the common view that the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) and al-Qaeda attackers are devout Muslims.

I realize that this will not sway any of the hardcore haters……but it does explain it simply and clearly……

And there are those people that complain the if Muslims were truly not like ISIS or Aq that they would do more to show their disgust for the barbarians……they do but NO one will give them a chance or even acknowledge their condemnations……

Following every Islamist terror attack on a Western soft target, like the recent one in Brussels, we hear the same refrain from certain corners: “Why won’t Muslims stand up to Islamic extremism?” The rhetorical question is meant to imply its own answer: that Islam is unavoidably a religion of violence which impels its adherents to at least sanction terrorism, if not partake in it.

But the argument contains a false premise. Plenty of Muslims are standing up to Islamic extremism, both in word and deed. In fact, it is Muslims who are doing all the heavy lifting in this regard, while the chief contribution of the self-righteous Western powers has been to add to their burden.

Islam is like any other religion…..there are differences in their interpretation…..to be honest it is similar to Christianity and the variations within the belief…..

The Business Insider ahs done a good job at trying to explain the differences and in doing so attempting to spread understanding…..

No religion is unified. How Catholicism, for example, is practiced in rural Italy differs from the way this is done, say, in New York city. Language, culture, tradition, the political and social contexts, and even food is different in these two places.

Such geographic differences are certainly important in Islam. But also important are the numerous legal schools and their interpretations. Since Islam is a religion predicated on law (sharia), variations in the interpretation of that law have contributed to regional differences.

I know this will fall in many deaf ears….but I hope that it will help calm some of the hysteria that is being whipped up in some circles…..
