Is Islam a Religion?

The status of Islam should be clarified if the debate on how to defeat terrorism is ever to bear fruit. Islam, I would argue, is not a religion in the common acceptation of the term as a community of believers dedicated to the loving worship of the Divine, the sanctity of life, and the institution of moral principles governing repentance for sins and crimes, making life on earth a stage toward a higher reincarnation, an ineffable peace, or a confirmatory prelude to eternity in the realm of a righteous and merciful God.

In fact, Islam is an unrepentant politico-expansionist movement clothed in the trappings of religion and bent on universal conquest by whatever means it can mobilize…

    Was Nazism a religion?

    • Heh;)

    • Alain

      If Islam is called and considered a religion, then so must Nazism and Communism be called and considered religions.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Some cargo-cults still exist to this day. hardly surprising that a Satanic cult such as Islam has lasted 1400 years.

    • tom_billesley

      Perhaps the Nazis made a mistake in not similarly cloaking themselves as a religion, despite the early influences on Nazism of Blavatsky’s Theosophy, and of Ariosophy and the Thule Gesellschaft.

    Islam is certainly, without question, a great religion ……

        Excellent! And that is the spitting image of the muslim prophet Mo!

    Islam, join for the oppression, stay for the beheadings, inshallah.

    Defining Islam as a hostile IDEOLOGY with a thin veneer of plagiarized religion papered on,is key to defeating it.declatre a war on ideological Islam and it Opens doors to treat practitioners as enemy Agents and allows apologists to be charged with giving aid and comfort to the enemy it would also allow
    Detention and mass Deportation which Must happen eventually if our culture is to be saved

      Religion is the figleaf of islam.

      • Waffle

        Solway’s sources have two great definitions:

        “religious-themed barbarism”, and

        “the duck-billed platypus of belief systems”.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Perfect summation!

    Next question.

  • Joan

    None of our current Western leaders would dare to even suggest such a thing.
    Can you imagine the furor that would ensue. Speaking the truth is dangerous these
    days and whoever attempted to denounce Islam would be driven from office.

      Even Trump tiptoes carefully here.

    Yes it is. It rules made by man for other men.

    It’s time to let go of the notion all Religions believe in the same things. That they are the same. How much more evidence, how many more bodies, do you require?

    Don’t try to weasel your way out of this one it’s high time the world realized the truth of this.

      judeo-Christianity has built a society with never before seen levels of openness and
      freedom You conflate that with a gangster driven ideology wearing a thin plagiarized covering of misinterpreted
      Material lifted from the old and New Testament,An Ideology, killing and enslaving for the past 1400 years,right up to and including this day . that’s pretty weasely right there.pol pot and Stalin advocated a religion free society it does not work. Just imagine the millions that would
      die if you or your ilk were in charge?

      • Jabberwokk

        You just don’t get it.

        One. Every Religion in the world is Rules made by men by other men. Do X and earn Y. Christianity being the only standout being that it is about a person and not a system or series of rules. Hence why it’s called Christianity and not Churchianity. It is the only worldview in which the the key to salvation is not reliant on man’s efforts or character but God’s. This is also why I don’t see Christianity as I understand it as a Religion but a relationship.

        Two. Political beliefs such as communism and the like replace God with the state. Instead of all being made equal in the image of God All are made equal in the writings of the law by the law writers of the time. The Goal being that all legislation and enforcement being a means to an end to a utopian/better society. In other words exactly the same ends just different means as any Religion. This is also the reason why they are often ‘in bed’ with Religion as the often run parallel courses.

        Three. Islam is both a political and religious force. They’re just far more honest about doing it. A political movement is about enforcement of the law up to and including the dealing out death. A religious movement does the same but with assumed backing of a higher authority. Islam does away with this minor distinction and says it is both and the same. This is why they can push over secular governments and other religions. When dealing with the secular they work through there policies of tolerance against religion they bring against them the law. The idea of separation of Church and state is a purely western idea that has no effect whatsoever on Islam.

        Four. For years I was told all religions are the same. Christianity was Islam was Buddhism. They were Superficially different but internally the same. But how can that be true when they differ on matters of
        creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation. And now a worldview has made a case in blood against that false belief and still it is clung on to. Because if all Religions aren’t equal then that means some are better than others, and if some are better than others then we need a way of measurement to determine which one is better than the next, and finally who will we trust to be the arbiter to give us that way of measuring?

        Conveniently classifying Islam away so that you can keep your crumbling worldview alive is dishonest and inaccurate. It’s high time the world realized that despite it’s attempts to kill the concept of Objective Truth it’s coming back and when it does it’s coming back with a vengeance. When it gets here you will find me where I have always been, on this solid Rock I stand.

          So under all the soaring verbiage you are basically in alignment with the Eurodork who plays his piano and warbles imagine,lennons childish hymn to nothingness

            If that’s what you gathered I can only conclude you simply haven’t a clue what your on about.

            I don’t think it’s possible to explain my position any better than I have so think what thou wilst.

    But think of the inexpensive workforce!

  • Thinking From First Principles

    All of the counter-jihad brain trust should be focused on this single question, because we will get only one chance to argue it in court. If we lose, it’s lights out for good. But this is, IMO, the single constitutional question for the US. Our constitution assumed separation of church and state based on Christian teaching that the two are separable. Islam rejects any such separation. How to handle that? Does the constitution protect a political religion since part of its nature is religious? Or does it regulate a political religion since part of its nature is political? Or do we require a constitutional amendment to establish that, under the United States Constitution, any religious, social, philosophical, philanthropic movement, etc. that is in any part inseparably political is to be considered completely political and not subject to any protections otherwise applicable to the balance of its nature?

    No, it’s a 7th century death cult followed by braindead retarded sandrats.

  • Oracle9

    This very simple description is a truth which the world’s leaders cannot fathom. Any elite who cannot has no business in any political office, due to incompetence or at least a seditious reluctance to advocate for his citizenry – the basic purpose of political office.
