There's no much real difference between the religions. They all hold back the progress of humanity. Well, again, except Buddhism, but Buddhism is the exception that proves the rule.

Under Muslim Pakistan's anti-blasphemy law, the mere allegation of causing offence to Islam can mean death. Those accused are sometimes killed by members of the public even if they are found innocent by the courts.

This, right here, makes me want to cause offense to Islam.

It's rather interesting the path Islam has taken. Islam was a brief guiding light in the world for a very short period of time, and even after that was instrumental in reviving what we now call Western Civilization. When Europe fell it was Arabic scholars that provided the texts that restarted it. But they've simply failed to progress since then; arguably they've regressed. It's an extremely short arc for the religion until it falls into nothing of value. Early in the existence of religion they can contribute something of value, but they inevitably fall into disarray, as powerful leaders use the so-called Word of God to control and abuse their people for whatever they choose to abhor. It's inevitable with that control system. As long as a leader can call upon God as proof they should do something, abuse is inevitable; it's far too much power to wield. It's why religions are inherently destructive - the current leaders can always call upon that supposed Word of God for whatever horrific thing they wish to have happen.

On the other side, it's a fabulous control mechanism, and inevitably holds back the progress of humanity. Two equal people, one religious and one not, will have different outlooks on life. The non-religious one will try to improve their world - after all, they know they only have one and they'd like to make it a nicer place. The religious one is more than willing to let the religious power structure dictate the world and leave things unimproved or decaying, all because their religion tells them that progress is bad and they will have a better second life. That is really why I abhor religion - it prevents us from moving on as a race because so many are willing or demand to put off improvements because they think their God wants it that way. They eschew the now for the never going to happen.

That kind, apparently.

I always thought that Islam gave special mitigation towards the mentally disabled (seeing that they're not fully responsible for their actions, or at least in caveman speak it could be said that they were being influenced by the Devil), but I guess there's no hate like muslim hate. Even tards don't stand a chance against the Religion of Peace Piss.

Considering the apparent barbarism of the locals towards those simply accused, some found not guilty by the courts, who would do such a thing? The penalty is death for destroying a widely distributed text. There is absolutely nothing to gain by doing this except pissing some people off a minute before they tear you apart.

I want to see a dual world outlook in the future. A sort of agreement between nations.

You of the more nonsensical, old-world, hold everyone down mindset can keep your respective countries there. And you keep your ideas and influence there too.

The rest of the world can embrace a more enlightened and tolerant approach to thought, belief, and science, and move forward into the species future, and we'll agree to leave the rest of the crazies out of it.

Deal?

Plenty, and they have all seemed perfectly ok -- which makes it all the more surprising that there can be so many farktards who do this shiat in the name of Islam. Sure, it's not *everyone* -- probably a small minority who are extremists -- but reading TFA, it sounds like the behavior is at least tolerated among the locals.

Arguably? They are the only place in the world that could be bombed UP to the stone age.

However, any group of a billion people can have an "off" 500 years or so.

One's sorrow that any given person believes something that isn't true doesn't have to commingle with one's hatred for those who do intentional ill toward others and justify those ills with such a belief.

Her religion is wrong. His and his followers choosing to intentionally hurt her is wrong on an entirely different level. I pity her, I abhor them.

Well said. Agnostics and Atheist tend to honor freedom by NOT engaging in war, genocide, cultural divisiveness and I think I can say with confience; engaging in a patriarchial systematic war on our mothers, daughters and sisters. Fundamentalist and conservatives do NOT want women to have domain over their own bodies, this is a simple self evident fact. And they want NOBODY to have domain over their minds to form rational and credible value systems...Men and Women alike. THAT had brought upon us the wonder that is the War On Drugs and all the other losing propositions forced down our throats like the burnt pages of a Koran/Bible/Constitution........

You know what, then they should be doing something to fix the fuked up country. They had a revolution that started all this BS, perhaps now is a good time to have a revolution to fix all this BS. And for god's sake, don't let the Muslim Brotherhood take over. Unless they are willing to take a stand, then fuk em. The world would be a much better if all Muslims simply disappeared.
