Religion Of Peace Update: Boy, They Respect Their Religion!

Super!

A suicide attacker detonated a powerful bomb inside a crowded mosque in northwestern Pakistan on Friday, killing at least 50 people and injuring 80 as they celebrated one of Islam’s major holidays with the country’s former interior minister, Pakistani officials said.

If they Islamic extremists do not respect their religion, why should we?

    So we shouldn’t respect those Muslims who live in peace?

    Might as well ask, if some people do not respect life why should we? The answer is obvious.

  2. seleucus says:

    We must gain for our cause peaceful Muslims (I have a friend in Singapore who belongs to that group). They hate the Muslims who kill ther persons in the name of their own religion. And the key is spreading democracy, even if weapons must be used, as in Irak.

  3. joated says:

    Tell your friend in Singapore to do a little more than privately decry the violence. He needs to get out there, along with all the peace loving Muslims I keep hearing about and put an end to the acts of the Islamists once and for all. If he doesn’t act he may well be tared withthe same brush as they.

    He clearly said “Islamic extremists”.

  5. Silke says:

    And the latter part of his statement referred to Islam as a whole. Extremists are defined by their actions. This has no bearing on whether we should respect the religion of others. It’s a non sequitur.

  6. Stacy says:

    That’s your interpretation. I know there are good Muslims out there. I personally wish individuals such as Dr. Aslam Abdullah, or Wafa Sultan would get more media play. They (extremists) CHOOSE to show us violence, it is their version of fear-mongering. In the meantime good Muslims are scared to speak out for fear of reprisal against their own, rather than the enemy. Had I been a good Muslim in that mosque when it was attacked by Al Qaeda, I would speak against these monsters. Wait, they allow women in mosques?

    My friend is a woman.

  8. Silke says:

    Teach said: If they Islamic extremists do not respect their religion, why should we?

    What did you mean by this statement, Teach? You have been unusually silent.

    Who cares what extremists think or how they justify their actions with their own twisted logic. I just find it strange that you think their actions should influence our opinions in any way. I can still respect Muslims who live their life in peace and do not impose their beliefs on others – right?

  9. Silke, the statement is an exercise in thought. I know my opinion, and I reckon I have relayed it hundreds of time over the years on his blog.

    As far as being quiet, went to a Christmas Party last night, and was a busy busy bee during the day.

  10. Silke says:

    Fair enough.

    Hope you had fun at the party. Merry Christmas!
