Opinion on racism.

Postby 2dimes on Sat Feb 23, 2013 3:04 pm

I'm curious about this.

Sorry there's no spectator options. Even though that pains me, you must chose of you want to vote.

I have left it so you can change your opinion later if you wish.

I would say its mostly a fact that they consider being a homosexual a crime. What are you getting at? I wouldn't say they're any more violent towards the gays than secular Christians

I on the other hand think cutting off a person's head is more violent than whatever you think the "secular Christians" have dome.

I could be wrong though.

I'd say that's a different issue. In a culture where a lot of things we would consider minor offenses are punishable by chopping off your head.

That's a different issue from what?

I'm not trying to suggest a person will participate just because they want to be identified by the label Muslim.

There is ample quantity of those that do though. I will fully admit I can't know the numbers but it most certainly appears to be more than half.

I'll concede there's people possibly worse that proudly identify as Christian but they are fortunately for everyone besides themselves few and far between.

There are five nations of the world that can carry the death penalty for homosexual acts. All five of those countries are muslim. In Afghanistan, under the Taliban, and in Iraq, under Hussein's 2001 decree, the death penalty was allowed for homosexual acts. The situation in both those nations has just recently changed due to the invasions.

Is what I just wrote, even though it is a fact, am I racist for writing it?

It was not always the case in Islamic countries. Such punishments were rarely doled out in the days of old.
Iran is the worst offender of executing homosexuals. Some 4,000 executed since the Islamic Revolution.
Saudi Arabia will execute homosexuals if they are married, or are trying to create a movement and challenge State authority. Otherwise homosexuals just get a fine, prison and/or lashes.

Interesting to note, Syria, under Assad, doesn't do anything at all to homosexuals. It's not illegal nor are homosexuals jailed, executed nor beaten under State decree. I'm sure there is some gay bashing going on, but such is not State approved. Good thing we are actively trying to root that evil dictator out, eh?

I don't know.

I am baffled that people pointing out factual things that might be stretched into generalizations by some unable to isolate anything is called "racist".

I am no expert on any religion, I prefer the Big Bang theory. I have never read the christian bible, but doesn't that say all things about homosexuality are bad and should be punished? Why single out Muslims?

I'm not making fun of anything here. Though I might start at any moment.

I don't want to say what started this thread but basically someone said, "That's racist." In response to someone... Yada yada.

The "Muslim is not a race." Thing has been pointed out and I agree but wanted to pose the question in an anonymous poll so anyone who thought that could click yes. I am basically wondering how many people did or even better still do.

I would like to see another poll to see how many think it's some form of bad thing to talk about Governments doing nasty things and justifying it via Islam.

Discussion on being wrong and blaming any religion is welcome in this thread. Carry on.
