Statutory Warning: All Religions are Equally Stupid
Heaven forbid that Islam should ever extend its sway beyond the religion’s present borders and take the reins of power in new territories.
After reading six Suras and nearly a 100 pages of the Quran, it’s safe to predict that should Islam spread its tentacles to more countries the prospect of freedom would immensely diminish and man’s life on this planet turn infinitely bleaker.
For Allah is the spiritual father of Joseph Stalin.
An uncompromising dictator with scant regard, nay a maniacal disdain, for those who march to the beat of a different drummer.
Christianity, Hinduism and the other religions are no less stupid than Islam but they are less intolerant of disbelievers (to use a favorite term of Allah in the Quran).
Time and again, Allah shouts his contempt for those not receptive to the clarion call of Islam:
Those who reject faith and deny Our revelations will inhabit the blazing fire. (Sura 5, Aya 10)
Blazing fire of a modern-day Lubyanka?
While the skeptics may sneer at our dire prognostications, all we implore of them is turn to the countries where Islam’s writ runs large today. Public worship of any religion except Islam is explicitly forbidden under threat of dire punishment, women are forced to veil their faces, the Mullahs lord over the sheep and the ‘revelations’ of ‘God’ to an illiterate in the seventh century is the supreme arbiter of life and liberty.
If that doesn’t give you the creeps, we don’t know what else will.
Again and again, we find examples of intolerance to those of other faiths right in the pages of the Quran:
We also took a pledge from those who say, ‘We are Christians,’ but they too forgot some of what they were told to remember, so We stirred up enmity and hatred among them until the Day of Resurrection, when God [i.e. Allah] will tell them what they have done. (Sura 5, Aya 14)
Stirred up enmity and hatred?
Is this the voice of God or that of a vainglorious mortal?
Also, there is an unseemly fixation with power in one who claims divinity and supposedly occupies the high ground by that claim:
Control of the heavens and earth and all that is between them belongs to God: He creates whatever He will. God has power over everything….He punishes whoever He will and forgives whoever He will. (Sura 5, Aya 17 and Aya 40)
Need more evidence of the violent threats in the Quran against the disbelievers?
Read on, dear schmucks:
Those who wage war against God [Allah] and his Messenger and strive to spread corruption in the land should be punished by death, crucifixion, the amputation of an alternate hand and foot or banishment from the land: a disgrace for them in this world, and then a terrible punishment in the Hereafter, (Sura 5 Aya 33)
In the Islamic weltanschauung as outlined in the Quran, there’s little scope for contrary views.
If you are not with God (Allah), you are against God (Allah).
It’s Allah’s way (Islam) or the highway:
Those who turn for protection to God, His Messenger and the believers [are God’s party]: god’s party is sure to triumph. (Sura 5, Aya 56)
By this time, even the dumbest of our dumb readers have figured out that dissent is a word missing in Allah’s lexicon:
Those people who say God is the third of three are defying [the truth]: there is only One God. If they persist in what they are saying, a painful punishment will afflict those of them who persist. (Sura 5, Aya 73)
If you are still in the mood for fiery threats from Allah, read this:
Those who reject the truth and deny Our messages will be the inhabitants of Hellfire. (Sura 5 Aya 86)
Hellfire, yeah, a hellfire on Earth is what awaits the disbelievers should Islam’s sway extend to new frontiers.
