I personally don't like the religion much, Sure every religion has their bunch of nut jobs who take it to the extreme, But it's a little too common in Islam

People in Iran take the Quran to literally and killed teenagers by literally stoning there head with concrete simply because they followed an Emo trend .

All in all my view may be based on my perception, and for this case , I trust. If Islamist can be tolerating of other peoples sentiments and beliefs without causing a riot , then sure I can live peacefully with them too.

I feel the need to clarify a couple of things, stoning is a form of punishment mentioned in the Sharia and not the Koran. Stoning happens when a person has taken the life of another unjustly or committed adultery. The Sharia is simply the followings passed down from generations, and honestly speaking it is quite outdated. But then again the practices in Iran shouldn't generalize the Muslim's in general.

And yes you are right in believing that people are often misguided in Islam but does not mean that Islam does not tolerate other beliefs, a little insight on the religion would do wonders for you my friend.

Of course, government should kill this kind of people in order to avoid further pollution inside society.

The vast majority of muslims are not violent people. However, Islam itself is incredibly violent. So is Christianity, so is Judaism.

you are absolutely wrong if you think so please give some evidence for you statement where you said Islam is violent religion. For example the faces of religions like Muhammad (SAW) or Jesus the weren't violent persons, if you know.

Religions don't kill people, people kill people.

Just as:

Erections don't rape people, people rape people.

AND

Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

"Erections don't rape people, people rape people."

Yes, but don't you think if the state forcibly regulated erections (by utilising chemical castration or some other means) the rape rate would decrease?

People may be the ones killing people, but it's the ideology caused by the religion itself that CAUSED them to do it. A gun can't plant ideas into peoples' heads or indoctrinate, but religion can!

I am in the same opinion with u, there are some people who is not clever and who is wrongly have understood the idea of being Muslim. Islam is the religion of piece, friendship, love and briefly the way of happy life.

Side: Yes

Right, that's why they call it the religion of peace. Fundamentalist Muslims don't speak for the millions of other Muslims in the world and no, not all of them are violent. Besides, didn't an American, Christian pastor burn the Quran? Why isn't anyone raging about that?! >_<

No, I don`t agree that Islam is a violent religion. Islam is not a violent religion. Some think that because a faction of extremist terrorists act in the name of Islam that this religion is a violent one. In fact, it is actually a peaceful religion. Small numbers of violent extremists make the religion look bad. Terrorists don't have the right idea of Islam. The Qur'an teaches that all human life is sacred and although you should try to bring peoplethe message of Islam, you should do it in a non-violent way. Islam is derived from the Arabic root "salema": peace, purity, submission and obedience.

Side: How can u say dat???

No It is not. If you bring on verses from the Koran I am ready for them because most of them refer to people who want to kill you in a war.

Side: How can u say dat???

No " kill the Infidel" does not mean Muslims must kill non-Muslims. There is historic proof: When the Islamic state was rapidly expanding in the seventh and eighth century, many people came under the direct governance of Muslims. These peoples belonged to different religions, races, ethnicities, etc. If the hypothesis that "Muslims are required to eradicate non-Muslims or "infidels" was correct, then a pattern of deliberate extermination, forced conversions, and/or expulsion would have been observed throughout the history of Islam, especially when Muslims were powerful and winning over their opponents.

That systematic pattern is simply absent.

Side: How can u say dat???

As for slay them where you find them, that is only a snipped version and it does not mention who, this is the full version: "Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loves not transgressors. And slay them wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter... But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful... If they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression" (2:190-193).

This is obviously discussing a defensive war.

Islam is a religion. And has violence in it's holy scriptures. But, it is not what you can call violent. It is merely misused. Terribly..

Any religion which supports the killing of an innocent life is not a religion. Islam talks about love and peace, yet most Muslim's are happy to have animals killed slowly and painfully for their enjoyment. I am a vegetarian and don't get me wrong as I think killing animals altogether is wrong! So can Muslim's out there clarify that do they think killing animals is wrong?? If they don't, then yes Islam is a violent religion!

the debate over weather Islam is a violent religion vs. the people who practice the faith are a violent people are two entirely different things. Are there more extremists who practice Islam in comparison to other religions such as Christianity or Judaism ? perhaps but that is not to say that the religion of Islam itself is violent in nature. in fact the principals of the faith are not very different compared to Christianity, in fact they even regard Jesus as a prophet , as well as Moses and many others, they simply believe that Mohammad is the most recent of prophets, that in actuality is the biggest difference between the two.

Side: How can u say dat???

Those terrorists are nothing more than fundamentalists, if you say Islam is evil by that logic, then Christianity is evil and my proof is the KKK. That is pretty stupid proof is it not?

Your argument completely ignores the fact that the Qur'an NEVER provides context. Any Muslim who seeks context for any given surah must look to the haditha (sayings of Muhammad) or the sira (biographies of Muhammad), as well as the vast body of commentary and exegesis in existence, which in turn confirm that Islam/Muhammad DOES enjoin physical violence, if necessary, in the name of the faith. You'd do well not to repeat platitudes and opt for good research instead.

What do you mean it never provides context. It does provide context but not if you snip out a word from the verse. If you go see my newest debate I debunk the argument kill the infidel and I say the WHOLE verse. By reading the whole verse you will find the context.
