The evil that Islam is and does 157

We despise belief in the supernatural, and are against all religion. But we recognize that some religions are worse than others.

At present, the worst of the world’s major religions is Islam. Since the Enlightenment, Christianity has dropped to second-worst.

Is there anything at all that can reasonably be called good in the ideology of Islam?

If anyone knows of anything to commend it, please tell us what it is.

It is a cult of death. As Hamas representative Fathi Hamad said boastfully:

For the Palestinian people death became an industry, at which women excel and so do all people on this land: the elderly excel, the Jihad fighters excel, and the children excel. Accordingly [Palestinians] created a human shield of women, children, the elderly and the Jihad fighters against the Zionist bombing machine, as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: We desire death as you desire life.

Here is a view of Islam by Daphne of Jaded Haven, posted November 29, 2008. We agree with almost everything she says:

I find myself increasingly repulsed by Muslim practices and beliefs. Middle Eastern, African, Asian, American, the country of origin makes no difference. Women and children treated as chattel, genital mutilation, child brides, honor killings, culturally accepted pedophilia, the black drapes and head coverings, no rights, no votes, little to non-existent educational opportunities, no voice, no chices, no recourse. Persecution of homosexuals. Imprisonment, stoning and whipping for morality crimes. Lack of free speech. The foul treatment of non-Muslims in Islamic countries. The demented hatred of Jews. Sharia Law. Wahhabism. Madrasas. Blind obedience to Mullahs. Praying towards Mecca – a place on the map few will ever see. Individuality is shut down, originality and freedom of the mind discouraged. Islam pisses on human talents that fall outside the dark walls of its faith. Hell, I even dislike their dislike of dogs.

I don’t believe Mohamed was holy or a prophet. I think he was evil incarnate carrying the words of Satan himself to a crew of desert simpletons. Islam is a barbaric, unpeaceful, vile, unthinking distortion of worship. The fact that the majority of its adherents can’t even read the Koran smacks of mindless ignorance. I see no enlightenment elevating individual singularity or acknowledging gifted greatness in this corner of archaic darkness. My lip curls at their love of theocracies, a willingness to subjugate themselves to the whims of dissolute rulers along side an ancient text they can’t even begin to comprehend, subsuming their divine individuality to a tide of dogmatic mandates. I have no use, or respect, for the people who follow this religion. I’m past tired of their bombing, shooting, acid throwing, coup d’etat loving, rioting asses and it looks like the rest of the world could stand a break from these murdering bastards, too. According to a website that does nothing but track worldwide Islamic terrorism, there have been 12,328 Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11*. Don’t tell me this isn’t an Islamic issue, the rest of us aren’t practicing murder on a worldwide scale in the name of religion.

We take issue (of course) with the word “divine”: to us,”individuality” is essentially, exclusively, and necessarily mortal. “Distorted worship” makes no sense to us, and we judge the Koran to be a repulsive, immoral book, often unintelligible, and not worth the effort to “comprehend” it. We do, however, accept “Satan” in this context as a personification of evil.

*The number of deadly terrorist attacks by Muslims since 9/11, tallied today by the (ironically named) website the Religion of Peace, and reproduced in our margin, is 17,266.
