Quote from: kindagnostic123 on March 29, 2014, 09:34:42 PMThe reason why I think Islam has a difficult time tolerating criticism of it is because of its absolute and adamantine doctrines. The more absolute the claims of a religion are, the more vulnerable it is to criticism, because it has to defend those absolutist claims on a weak basis.

Quote from: SGOS on June 11, 2014, 07:38:41 AMIslam is like Christianity. The same dynamics are at play, but it's more intense. Take everything about Christianity and magnify it; The anger, hate, violence, victim status, intolerance, and blatant unquestioning stupidity are all exaggerated. Religions are dangerous, and Islam is currently the most violent of today's religions. We tend to make excuses for moderate Muslims, but Islam's violent factions are a growing threat, and powerful enough to take over Mosul. This is no small undertaking, and people should stop talking about the religion of peace as if it presents no threat.

Quote from: SGOS on June 12, 2014, 07:41:25 AMIt won't be the first time that we've heard about something like this first on an international forum. I've actually seen lag times of a month after something is first reported on a forum. Finally, the media hears about it.
