The BNP criticises Islam, claiming wrongly the whole faith is evil, but what about christianity?
"The Mormon cult claims to hold marriage as a "sacred institution."....I find the cult's behavior, and beliefs regarding marriage to be hypocritical since they will not stop marriages in Utah from being legal forms of pedophilia."
"The Mormon religion has been in the news much lately because of alleged child molestations in Texas. The state of Texas forcibly removed 416 children from their Mormon parents when suspicions of sexual abuse began to appear."
"Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion—plagued with homosexuals, child molesters, pedophiles, and pederasts."
"Draft survey: 4,450 priests accused of sex abuse"
"Warren Jeffs - America’s most wanted: The man with eighty wives"
"The Colorado City/Hildale area has the world's highest incidence of fumarase deficiency, an extremely rare genetic condition. Geneticists attribute this to the prevalence of cousin marriage between descendants of two of the town's founders, Joseph Smith Jessop and John Yeates Barlow. It causes encephalopathy, severe mental retardation, unusual facial features, brain malformation, and epileptic seizures."
Now we know the IRA and others in Northern Ireland are religious terrorist groups. There are others, ETA, while an independence terrorist group is also catholic in nature.
Basically christianity has areas which do not conform to what we expect in life, from paedophiles, terrorism, treating women as second class citizens.
In Islam this also happens. But like in Christianity is only a part of the religion, and does not represent the whole of islam in any way.
Islam was the religion of tolerance 500 years ago, far more tolerant than christianity. When the catholic kings totally took over from the moors in Spain in 1492 they threw the jews and muslims out of the country, or killed them, where as the moors had treated christianity and judaism fairly (for the period at least and in comparison with the christians). The same was true in the Ottoman empire.
this article above, from 1998, seems to predict a future where Muslims were treated badly, and this has happened.
This shows there are moderate muslims.
One question is, if there are 1 billion muslims in the world, 1/5-1/6 of the world's population, why have they not taken over already. Why is the war being fought by a few small groups in several countries in the west, and by a few thousand in afganistan? Take the population of the victors of WW2 in the present day, USA has 300 million, the UK 60 million, Russia has around 120 million. Hardly enough to compare with Islam, yet they managed to win a war, and wage it. Why does Islam not do this? Why are most muslims in the UK law abiding citizens who have done no harm to anyone?
