Islam is not a religion of peace, neither does it stand for peace. Islam is a religion of submission. A Muslim fully submits himself/herself to the will of God.
The issue is that it is not the will of God they are submitting to but the will of the human being.
I have no quarrel with the majority of Muslims who practise their faith peacefully. They are loving, caring people – most of whom will not participate in homophobic hate mongoring, or agree with the ‘eye-for-an-eye’ punishments, or the lashing of adulterers and fornicators. Most of them won’t even agree that I should be put to death for being an apostate.
No. My quarrel is not with them. I hold issues with those that follow religion to the letter; with those that think they understand the will of God completely, and they must act on His behalf. These are the same people that are crying for homosexuals to be put to death; the same people who believe a person convicted of theft must have his hands cut off, and two consenting adults must be lashed and stoned till death takes them for having sex out of wedlock.
These people also decide how much of my penis must be chopped off to appease God, and what length should my hair be. These are the people who think a woman’s place is at home. They think slitting a woman’s throat is more honourable than letting her live in sin.
Before the uninformed defenders of Islam come to bash me and say these practices are cultural and not religious, who are you kidding? The importance given to female virginity in Islam gives the green light to those that follow this scripture to do the unthinkable things that ensures a woman’s virginity is protected. They will go as far as to cut the clitorous off, commonly referred to as female genital mutilation, or ‘female circumcision’ by those that want to make it sound like a legitimate practice.
Homosexuality is vigorously opposed by those that think it’s a sin, and that they have God’s permission to protect their society from a repeat destruction that happened in Sodom and Gomorrah.
I will not make friends with such people, and such people should be the enemy of every single moral human being who has even an ounce of dignity in them.
Luckily, majority of Muslims I know are some of the kindest people I’ve met, but when others take religion to its full practice, that’s when it becomes a vile doctrine that needs to be wiped out from the face of this planet.
