Islam is indeed a 'pieceful' religion.

It's a religion which teaches it's followers to leave the bodies of all non believers in ''pieces'', scattered over the towns and cities of Europe.

Most western politicians agree with this doctrine and assist in the spread of the religion of 'pieces' by continuing to swamp their respective countries with ''piece'' loving Muslims.

What is your explanation for why the vast majority do not commit terrorist attacks? In your expert opinion.

They are not following their religion closely enough. The trend seems to be, the stronger your Islamic convictions are, the more violent you are.

Side: Yes

What religion is a religion of peace? Certainly not any of the three main religions (Christianity, Islam, or Judaism). Granted it depends on what your definition of peace is such as does peace mean non-violence or merely fighting to preserve "peace". How can any religion be considered peaceful when it has some form of eternal damnation or at the very least torture for a certain time frame.

If God doesn't exist, there is no "eternal torture", making such doctrine of no affect on the life of an Atheist if Atheism is correct. Thus to say an afterlife of eternal damnation is threatening is the most nonsensical thing an Atheist can say.

He said "torture for a certain time frame". Can you seriously not write a solitary reply without changing what the other person said?

making such doctrine of no affect on the life of an Atheist

You mean other than having to deal with bloodthirsty paedophiles like yourself every day?

Thus to say an afterlife of eternal damnation is threatening is the most nonsensical thing an Atheist can say.

That's weird, because claiming Christians don't use the mythical "fires of hell" to scare people (and in your unfortunate case, defenceless children) into obedience is the most nonsensical thing a Christian can say. Claiming that Christians do in fact use the threat of "fires of hell" to scare people into obedience seems not only significantly less "nonsensical", but it has the added bonus of NOT CONTRADICTING 2,000 YEARS OF WORLD HISTORY.

So you are saying that we should have no rule of law, no prisons, no accountability for one's actions, no consequences for things we do in our lifetime?

Maybe you want to live in a Hell on Earth, I don't.

Why would God not reward people who live by his rule of law as we do here on Earth? If we live by our laws, we do not go to jail.

If people live by faith in Christ, follow his examples of loving each other, then we would be rewarded.

If you live by man's so called love and compassion, it is ok to kill even viable babies up to birth for any reason. You don't see your own inhumanity. You have actiualy bought into this political correct belief that mankind is basically good.

There will be God's prison for people who live by man's selfish desires.

You don't like God having a Hell for punishment? Live with it. But of course you don't believe in anythng but mankind, so why are you trying to tear down another's faith?

We need SOCIETAL laws. Actual laws that protect the people that make them, with REAL societal punishments that people know will be there if they go against these laws. We don't need horror stories that are intended to "scare hell out of children" should they not follow an agenda designed to lead them down a guided path to controlled thought, to "follow the leaders" who want to preserve the myths they believe will guarantee THEM a ticket to "everlasting life" for BEING the leaders. A vicious circle of mind control.

Societal laws require PROOF, religious laws require belief. A societal law requires more than a "belief" that someone is guilty or innocent.

"If people live by faith in Christ, follow his examples of loving each other...." Somehow, with many "Christians", that doesn't apply to African American, Hispanic, Muslim, Gay, Atheist. YOU don't see THEIR humanity, at least as EQUAL. Society sees "mankind as basically good" regardless of what some see as "religious perfection." We will NEVER have accepted religious perfection with all religions, we will only have the "My way or the highway" belief that actually LEADS US TO OUR OWN HELL .. on Earth! WAR, arguing, hate, racism, intolerance, etc. "God's prison" for "man's selfish desires".

So why do YOU spend so much time tearing down another's faith ... like Muslims, Catholics, Hindus, others. THEY have a right to THEIR belief.

Interesting interesting.. So... Is Islam a religion of peace?

Side: No (Duh)

Islam isn't a religion of peace. People who fail to see that need to open up their eyes, and open up a Quran and read it. Or be like me and watch David Wood videos.

Side: No (Duh)
1 point

There are thousands of verses in the Quran that call for the murder and enslavement of non believers, not to mention the violence against women it promotes (honor killings, FGM, stoning rape victims to death), despite modern feminists and communists praising it as a peaceful and feminist religion. Did I ever tell you that Islam is Arabic for submission?

Side: No (Duh)

Agreed, feminists today in America have no concern for real issues concerning women and instead whine about trivial nonsense like catcalling and men spreading their legs on the subway

Side: No (Duh)

Islam thinks of peace as subjugating the world under sheria law and slaughtering all "infidels," or if you are lucky, being genitally mutilated and made slaves. happy ramidan
