I don't know so much about the burning part, I wouldn't have converted to Catholicism during the Inquisitions either. I'd be willing to die keeping my held beliefs rather than someone else's perversion of a belief.

Jihadists are not a perversion of Islam; they are its natural product.

No, they're a perverted form just as, for example, Westboro Baptist Church is a perverted form of Protestantism.

The question is "Would you convert to Islam to save your family's lives?".

Not you dying.

Your family dying.

The question kind of stunned me.

If the situation has become so dire that the choice comes to this...

damn me

NO!

The Muslims' sacred text calls them to wage jihad.
So, once again...you are brilliantly wrong.

This is like a Holocaust question. Having worked in the Jewish community for years; seeing tattooed numbers on wrists, visited the Holocaust museum in DC, I think why did they stand up for their religion which equaled death, for most. I would do what I had to do in order to protect my family. It's what is in my heart that matters, you cannot alter my thoughts.

Being Catholic, I have to look to the examples of martyrdom and have the faith they had.

You plumb new depths of stupidity daily.

The Jewish genocide had nothing to do with religion. They did not stand up for their religion. They were knocked down for their ancestry.

The saving of the family part makes no difference, I would hope the example of standing to principles and tenets would be a great example to them.

Just as the Old Testament calls for war, slaughter and the wiping out of non-believers.

Growing up Lutheran, my parents insist that is the correct religion; if you're not Lutheran, you go to he11. I asked the question, "What if you are wrong?", answer, "We are not"

Extremism in any religion is self righteous, pompous, and in this case, as many others, deadly.

Pay attention and I will reiterate: Nazi Germany did not kill Jews for their religious beliefs.

Millions of Jews would have renounced their religion if it would have kept them out of the camps.

Sure I have but it's often more convenient for many to revert back to Old Law because, once again, it fits a judgmental narrative.

You don't love your neighbor as yourself, the second commandment of the New Covenant, so get off your high horse.
