<quoted text>one word...thighing. You have as many perverse m-effers, if not more than any other religion... Hypocrite. Soon westernization won't be your biggest problem. You are equally hate filled as YDueEye in your generalizations, and proselytism; neither can see the short comings of your own theism. Hindus should find the good in their own religion and ignore hypocritical hate mongers like you. You give Islam a bad name, perhaps the name it deserves.
Modern America is replete with political correct speak or self-censorship for four decades and if your attempt is to silence me by calling me hate filled for calling out reasonable contradictions and or apparent lies then I will wear that badge proudly as an American ready to put a boot in someoneís arse.

On a much lighter note, however, it seems you are just as busy spewing hate filled rhetoric as you are claiming others have planks in their eyes, lol.

Only in your imagination. You and Kahn are more alike than different, each intolerant of each other. You're equally free in spewing your hate filled agenda, just don't be surprised when one calls a spade a spade, which is all I'm doing. I have no interest in trying to silence your nor "Kahn's" hate speech, but I will call it for what it is.
.
Neither of you are positive representations of your respective religions.

I know the truth is generally hard to accept but I have never written anything equal to the insults or tone you have written here in your comments. You say you point out truth, fair enough, but you do so with the tone and aggression of an angry person. I have pointed out what appears to be inconsistencies or lies and I have done so in a respectful manner.

What popular theism hasn't been perpetuated without the cost of human rights and the deaths of innocent multitudes in its virulent spread around the world? None.

It's so hard to accept, you refuse to. Perhaps you interpret my deliberate tone as angry, but you couldn't be further from the truth. You seem to believe that by exposing you for a liar that perverts the historical context of Abrahamic religions to suit your agenda as disrespectful. I'm sure that those that are practicing Muslims found your posts equally disrespectful. I'm not trying to defend or attack any religion. Religion gives a lot of people peace, strength, and community; I wouldn't want to take the good that it does from anyone, but none are free from reproach.

This article sums up what modern India is all about, written by a fairly progressive fellow named Sean Kelley. Iíve been studying India for a while now, and the more I study it, the angrier I get. India, quite simply, sucks. Sucks, sucks, sucks, sucks and then sucks some more. I donít know how long this shittiness has been going on, maybe forever. When the British first showed up, they were appalled. They tried to civilize the place, but the small-c conservative Indians kept objecting to getting civilized.
What sucks? India sucks. What about it sucks?
First of all, the state.
The Indian state has sucked Devilís balls in Hell from Day One, birthed in blood-soaked imperial and neo-colonial sin like America, Australia and Israel, with even less of an excuse, as a long-abused colony themselves. Now, via alliances with imperialist America, the UK and Israel, India seems to be aping the worst aspects of its former imperialist and colonialist master. Like a crime victim going on a killing spree. Of all the ways to react.
The **** nature of the Indian state is of course rooted in Indian society, as all states are rooted in the cultural formations of their societies. The Indian state sucks because Indian society sucks.
Well then, I wouldn't advise you to go there. May I suggest Yemen? It's the center of human trafficking and underage sex slavery for Muslim men on the Arabian Peninsula...or you could just go into one of the many, many, many openly "secret" homosexual clubs that adorns the middle east. You hate it here so much, feel free to leave, please

Sorry dude, if she says Islam is peaceful, she is not following the tennants of Islam. On the other hand it is okay for them to lie and be deceitful. Read the Koran and see how peaceful it is. Read some of the history of may I suggest, "Tea for Terrorists." I am a christian and when Jesus was being tortured and had to carry the cross, did not preach hate of His persecutors, He was doing what God had sent Him to do, being a light unto salvation. Don't see that happening in Islam.
Oh but yes they are, martardom and 62 virgins are a great motivator to spread the word of Islam.

Let's just hope Islam evolves, or at least stops getting used by bad people to do bad things
Agree. In many respects we are talking more about culture and its current placement in history. Parts of some cultures (bound as they are to religion) are several centuries behind today's world.

Dancing in the streets while mass murders blow up buildings, and advocating the chopping off of women's noses is how outsiders see your religion. You want it to be seen as a religion of peace and tolerance, show it and advocate for it. I know that Islam isnít the only religion that is guilty of atrocities, but each religion has its representatives. Right now, in the public spot light, yours isnít looking too good.
