Keep dreaming and living A...you did not know whst I was going to say before I said it, you just just do not want to be proven wrong about the history of Islam. And if you do not understand even after it is read ten times is also typical of one who does not believe that the same God that created you will call you to account when you die.
Actually...it should be read for a lifetime to learn and live it.
If you wish to see the end of "this evil in the name of religion" why not study and learn the religion before passing putride bias judgment. And of course you want because you fear that you will actually learn the truth behind why God does what He does.
And NO, I do not believe in Muslims or any other sect that do. However I do have the right not to like and agree with homosexuality as it is an abomination against God and nature. I do not condone the oppression of women in any religion, especially Islam. I like people to a certain extent. I do not like abuse, in any form, I do not like killing in any form, if killing can be avioided, then it should. I do not hate the jews because I was taught not to hate anyone. Yes I dislike the "ways" of people and what they do in the name of Islam, or any religion for that matter. Islam doesn't teach me hatred, but Allah knows who the good people are and who the bad ones are and I trust Him with my life.
If I were homosexual(thank Allah that I am not) in any country, I would be to ashamed to tell anyone, let alone flaunt it publicly....Hello!!
In Islam, people are given the chance to repent from such behavior. They are told the consequences concerning their actions. The choice is left up to them whether or not to obey the laws or take the punishment. God did NOT ordain two women/men for eachother. And as their Creator, He knows what is best for mankind. Even if mankind does not agree!! I do not go against the laws of God.
FYI-many religions do not tolerate these things and have laws to dealwith them NOT just Islam. Islam is just the worlds scapegoat...always have been and probably always will be. So if people are going to be angry and vindictive about Islam, then they should also be the same about other religions that covet the same examples.
Now since you have had your say about Islam, let us have our say about Atheism. Is that fair play?? Because none of us will ever give enough reliabld answers that will satisfy one who does not believe in God anyway. Kinda like beating a dead horse and expecting it to jump up and say "I am dead already"!! As for me...
