hmm well yes alot of people here attack muslims but with good reason, u say we should go out and meet muslims, but here is the thing, we all do that, hell we were muslims, and most if not all of us are surrounded by muslims, so we know perfectly clear how muslims are,.. as far as I can see most are not getting their opinion on islam from the media or just books, we have lived it.
attacking islam is not a side effect, learning about the real islam you cant help but feel disgusted by it. yes alot of muslims are nice people but honestly (and I only speak for myself here) I think the most of the nice/liberal muslims dont even follow the real islam, they choose parts of it and ignore others (which is fine with me, everyone is free) , but for me the muslims who follow the Quran, hadiths and all that are the real deal, they practice islam fully, good and bad. I believe the Quran is very clear in its messages, u say we shouldent read it literally, but thats how it is meant to be read, alot of muslims nowadays say ohh well its all about how you interpret it, but thats like trying to twist the meaning so it can be fit into our civilization which it cant, the Quran was written hundreds of years ago, everything it says was meant to be taken literally back then. Islam and the Quran is barbaric because thats how things were back then.
Not all, but alot of muslims really do believe it should all be taken literally, wife beating, punishing gay people, hitting children, cutting the hand of a thiefs and so much more. thats the islam I HAVE a problem with. If people want to change the meaning of the Quran so it fits into the world today (no matter how stupid I may think it is) its fine by me, but trying to create a world where no one is free, women are submissive, democracy is a no no...
thats not acceptable, I hate and dispise that Islam
