So as u can see, The topic is about wether The Republic of Turkey is considered an Islamic County or not and why?

Edit:
With me, I think it depends on how one looks at it.

If you look at it as a population thing, then Yea, Turkey is a Muslim country. basically if it passes %51 then I think yea its a religious country according to the highest religious population.

But if you look at it as "whom rules it" as in by "Islamic law" or not, then I think it isn't an Islamic Country.
Due to Turkey isn't Islamicly ruled but it has much Islamic basis and culture for the "people".

Even if a muslim did a religious action and it is against The Man Made law, then that person would go to jail even though he is backed up by Islam.

Close case scenario: Here in the Wonderful USofA, If a christian were to harm a person for "aborting a Child" that Christian would be charged. even if he/she is backed up by religion.

so if u look at it that way then the country isnt a religious country but it is populated by religious people. which makes it an independent with its own politics and rules and laws..

=D

should i even start??

i think this question is one of those that are so controversial, having two really strong sides, and each is not open to ideas at all. *cough*

in the end, the question wouldn't even be answered.

this has some of what we was talkin about.

yea, but is that how one would measure a country? by the population? or by the government and its rulings and laws?

^^^You took my picture.

Turkey is a muslim country. Like Europe is full of Catholic countries. Turkey is mainly populated by muslims and I believe it is ruled by a dictator who dictates religion. There is no religious freedom there and quite frankly, it is heavely steeped in Islamic history.

i think its a muslim country, just like how other nations with a muslim majority are considered muslim countries even though they may have smaller religious groups as well. Turkey is muslim but its people arent arabs, theyre baltic/europe (i think )

No one can force any one to believe in any thing. but one can enforce the "law"

if the country is ruled by Islamic law, then ALL must abide by it, just as if it was ruled by any other law.

If I were to kill some one here in the USA, then I would pay the penalty according to its law.
I can't get away with "well, its ok to kill in my religion" "or "its ok to kill in my lack of religion and freedom from religion". One is accountable to where they are.

so by stating that is incorrect. Ether u abide by the law, wether u do it for God or for us is back to u. but u must do it. If u dont want to then u are free t leave. as are the rules over here in the USA! u fallow the law, or leave if u cant handle it.

Go to google

Yes I know it's free but I had it first so technically it should be associated with me. It isn't technically mine to own but I used it first shall we say.

You fail. It ain't that funny. And at least I didn't use a holy book as evidence for an arguement.

actually it has a goverment and that who runs the country, its democratic and there is religous freedom (hence the reason it is a canidate to gain entery to the U.N or is part of it, I forgot which one) and does have alot of islamic history but so does spain(it was ruled by muslims which was a multicultural society but was then invaded as there power declined).

error in spelling and missing out key words
