Islam

I've been researching the religion Islam because my gf is Muslim and ive found its almost exact same as being Christian. Very very similar. Is anyone Muslim here? How do you find the religion? And also how do the non religious people view Islam. Serious post.
Ever since of been reading about it its made me a calmer person and I have heaps more respect for people (besides ww of course) interested in people's opinions.

Muslims are total bros, I am not one myself but it is a super cool religion, less doom and gloom then Christianity and more just be a fucking bro not a dropkick shit. Makes me pretty aggrivated how most Australians are now calling them a warmongering religion trying to subvert our white white world. Fuck you Murdoch

From what I understand the basic story is similar. The major difference is that Jesus (Essa) is not the son of God but another prophet with Mohammed the one true prophet. The Koran is a little more specific with directions on how to worship and behave than the bible which can lead to literal interpretations being a tad full on. Still, the Bible has some crazy interpretations too from time to time.

I live in an Islamic country and the people are extremely generous with each other. Far more so than Australia. I have yet to have anyone hang out of a car windows and hurl abuse at me for looking different.

You've never driven through Punchbowl I see.

I have no issue with Muslims in the same way that I have no issue with Christians etc. But I do have an issue people being cunts and justifying it through their religion.

They are nothing alike except both uphold Abraham, both are monotheist and both have moral standards.

For one to claim they are almost exactly the same must means one has not taken the time to seriously examine the subject.

Islam is premised more on the practitioner being a slave to God through a list of DO's and DON'Ts. Christianity on the other hand is premised on loving God and one's neighbour with one's whole being, ie. heart purity.

Religion isn’t the issue.

You take people from a low education, low opportunity background and provide them anything which gives them a sense of purpose that speaks to them and they will follow it blindly, be it religion or an ideology or reality TV.

The exception, of course, is plain old dumb cunts who can come from anywhere… although if they’re a privileged dumb cunt you might find them in the young liberals but the same rules apply; these people will blindly follow what gives them a sense of purpose.

Now if they feel particularly victimised by their situation, and a group ISIS today or the National Socialists way back in the 1930s offering them a cause to follow and somebody to blame for their lot in life… well that’s when shit gets REAL nasty.

And you know what scares me?

I'm seeing it in our own country from the highest levels of government.

Religion isn't the PRIMARY issue, but it's still part of it.
I believe you're right in that it's more to do with low education/low status people finding something to channel their frustration. And there they find acceptance among like minded people.

I was discussing with someone last night who I'd consider somewhat an authority on the subject. He tells me that the Quran in it's original text has less violence than the old testament.

I believe Rav is a muslim.

I'm with phil. I have nothing but contempt for all religions but when it comes to role models Jesus runs rings around Mohammed.

Old Testament or New? The Old has some seriously fucked up shit in it. Elijah and the Bears for a start - don't go messing with the church's prophets or your kids will get mauled... because God thinks it's ok.

From my reading of both the Koran and the Bible - the message is there - submission to God either way.

While not pertinent to the discussion, one thing that upsets me as a Christian is that it's socially acceptable to take the piss out of the religion and its followers (how many Jesus jokes are out there), yet if you make a quip about Muslim or Mohammad you are morally corrupt and have no place in our society (and will be frowned upon by your peers).

Seems fair.

Ya I agree with this.

And who made Jesus look like a surfer dude with long hair and good looks?
With the Muslims God - Allah he does not have a face or anything. They say he is everywhere and you can't give someone like Allah a face. Which makes sense.

The thing that has put me off being Christian is all these priests doing horrible things to kids and the church tries to hide it. I've never heard of a Muslim priest do horrible things? Muslim priest is an Imman I thinks.

Edit: I was right. Muslims don't believe in tax. In their religion taxing people is forbidden.
