Wow thats very interesting....I am honestly more surprised that Islam is just very sneaky. Contrasted against the blatant Christians in America who stand on the road side with signs like "GOD HATES FAGS" and such. Seems they both have a similar agenda. Interesting to know that the Quran actually directly instructs Muslims to take over the world.

 

Sassan, since you posted this I assume you have some knowledge regarding Islam? My understanding is that the Quran was written by Mohammed, a prophet of Islam. Is this correct? Also, what does Islam claim to be its source of authority? (like the Bible claims to be the word of God, I assume the Quran is the word of Allah, interpreted by Mohammed?)

Actually - the Hadith instructs Muslims to take over the world (the writings of Muhammad and his followers in which Shariah law is based from). And in Islamic laws - gays are executed. There is no debate around it. Islam is a totalitarian religion mixed with politics with no gray shades if followed literally which is required in Islam.

The quran is the supposed "words of god to Muhammad in a cave' in which Muhammad somehow remembered and had them "written down" (since he was illiterate). And yes, Muhammad was the prophet of Islam (a child molester and genocidal maniac btw) but the source of authority as you assumed correct - is that the quran is the unadulterated and absolute word of "god" as aforementioned - along with the Hadiths which Shariah law is based upon. In contrast, most Christians and even many religious leaders and Bible scholars do not claim that the Bible is the unadulterated word of "god" - most scholars admit it was written down by a multitude of scribes over centuries - and that the Bible is more "parables" or "moral lessons" than for everything to be taken literal. In contrast with Islam - you don't and cannot have this - or you're an apostate.
