People are way more than their religion. Religion is not such a profoundly defining thing that one can be judged on the basis on what religion they ascribe to. The question "What do you think of people belonging to X-religion" is absurd from this perspective.


It's interesting to note that this is fundamentally not true in many countries. This would be called heretical and can be punished. There are countries that will kill you if you are not Muslim. Answering Your Hypothetical Question Is a Matter of Life and Death. Luckily, in first world nations,we don't have this problem. Freedom of speech AND thought is not a given!

Back to the original question. It matters.


Truth.

The question is why do you hate Islam so much?

Number of reasons.
For one, you have the various situations in several muslim countries, where the laws are based offof the Islamic beliefs.
There is the fact that it causes a lot of conflict, and I don't think there will ever be peace in themiddle east as long as it is around (or at least it will take way longer).

Then there's the standard religuos stuff, like its teachings of violence towards others and its outdated beliefs about humans.
And the fact that it slows down the collective progress of mankind. Which irritates me to no end.

Oh, and it also condones sex with children.

I honestly think that they are people just like the rest of mankind. Riots and other things like that are the choices of few no matter what nationality or faith they come from. Its wrong to penalize a whole race or faith for the choices of set few. I just think they are people too, plain and simple.

I have nothing against the Islamic people, except the religion has a tendency to make it followers try to shovel their religion down your throat and others. Islam is built like a political movement, ever searching for power.

And i can say this, since i've lived 12 years in a area where 70% Muslims; they are really shoveling a lot of religious stuff around, i fear there will be a major conflict when Muslims (those who are super active and really forward) have the balls to try something big.

Religion is a factor of cultural development, culture is a factor of economic situation.

For instance, developed wealthy nations have vast amounts of atheists because religion becomes less important in lands of abundant resources. For example in Japan non religious people far outnumber religious ones.

However, Muslim nations usually are under developed and without social security nets. Their culture is guided by fear of loss and just like every other cult in existence like Christianity or Buddhism - Islam gains power by feeding on the misfortune of the many. Do not blame the core name of the belief they claim to follow as the problem. Blame local cultures of impoverished and war gripped nations.

I think there are good and bad in all religions, countries, and peoples. IMO to generalize is ignorance.

What really bothers me though is Christians coming to my door, despite having a note on my door saying no religious peddlers, trying to convert me, I just despise that. It's not like I go to their door and try to convert them shish

A response to Syndicaidramon


various situations in several muslim countries - What situations and what countries?

laws are based offof the Islamic beliefs - What laws and what beliefs? Where?

it causes a lot of conflict, and I don't think there will ever be peace in themiddle east as long as it is around - What? As long as what is around? What causes conflict? What conflict?

like its teachings of violence towards others and its outdated beliefs about humans. - Examples? How do you measure "outdated"? What outdated beliefs?

it slows down the collective progress of mankind- Collective progress of mankind?? Hahah, you really believe in that?

it also condones sex with children- Where?

If you are going to hate something with such conviction and force, shouldn't you have reasonable and specific arguments? All you provided was vague generalizations about Islam that could have come straight out of a FOX news segment. Also, please learn to differentiate between the influences culture, politics, history, religion and philosophy have contributed to conflicts in the middle east rather than attributing it all to Islam.

I've met all sorts of people from many different religions. Some were very open minded, some - naturally - not so much.
It always depends on the person, not the religion. Very generally speaking, I see religion as the root of most of the evil in the world. We'd be better off without.

I have many people in my school that kind of ruin the reputation of Islam, BUT I still think of them in a nice way because everyone is equal and we all have the same functioning in our body, we can all think alike if we chose to.
Religion doesn't matter, you can believe what you want to.
:)
I have some friends that are Muslims some of my true friends ^^ they are very honest and kind!
