If you kill in the Name of God

If you kill in the Name of God,
You’re in a DEATH CULT, not a religion.

If you Oppress in the Name of God,
You’re an Oppressor, not a Savior.

You cannot love God and hate others
because God includes All of Us.

1. If you kill in the name of your country, are you a patriot?

9. No

Patriot is a U.S. Army antiaircraft missile with a range of 37 miles (60 km) and a 200-pound (90 kg) warhead, launched from a tracked vehicle with radar and computer guidance and fire control.

2. There is a line in the Quran that always cracked me up...

It reads, more or less, like this:

Any Muslim who intentionally kills another Muslim shall be put to death.

I guess they'd be wanting to hire non-Muslim executioners, otherwise that job would have a lot of turnover...?

5. No, there's an easy way out and they use it. Sunni declare Shi'a are not Muslims,

Shi'a declare Sunni are not Muslims.

Problem solved.

6. Just thinking outloud here...

The word "kill," may be used a little differently by some than how we use it in the US. For example, some or all Buddhist sects don't considered self immolation to be suicide, because they are giving their lives for the perceived benefit others, as opposed to giving in to pain and despair.

7. Well, I stand in general opposition to the Death Penalty...

So anything other than an accident, a situation where someone is deliberately murdering another (with knife, with gun, with rope, with electricity) I have a problem with it.

Suicide is something that I think is unfortunate, but it's not like taking someone else's life.

Of course, it would be hard to invoke that Quranic rule on someone who was already dead by suicide, too...a conundrum!

13. I believe you refer to this verse..

Last edited Mon Jun 17, 2013, 07:49 AM - Edit history (2)

“And whoever murders a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him”
*an-Nisa’ 4;93

The execution can only be carried out by those in authority who are obliged to carry out the qisaas and carry out hadd punishments. The death penalty is not seen as a murder so a muslim executioner can carry it out.

14. Close enough for government work!

I have to say, I think putting someone down when they can't fight back is murder, no matter how it's parsed....after all, the victim ends up dead and they don't have the opportunity to flee or fight back. I suppose they've got to play a game where they bullshit the executioner so he'll do the job, but he ought to have a sense that a great punishment will be prepared for him, if he's a believer and he spends any time thinking about it!

10. Then you're saying that

the Jews are a death cult and that Judaism is not a religion. They killed in the name of "god" all through the OT.

And you know that "god" "includes alL of uS"...how? Because you say so? Or do you have some cherry-picked quote from the Bible to trot out?

15. God includes all of us because God is OMNI....

I'm not citing any Scripture, but if God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient, that's pretty much everything. I don't rely on Scripture for my ideas about God, although Scripture can sometimes be helpful.

"I AM" recognizes no "others".

16. Those are your personal beliefs.

Other believers disagree with you.

And neither of you seems able to convince the other of their error.

11. bullshit. your god is made up by you to suit your rationalizations.

 

the Bible says exactly the opposite. the Bible.. and the Torah... and the Koran.. say that only True Believers deserve mercy. the rest of us deserve the very hell your bullshit book describes.

it's written down. don't try to rewrite the Bible or Torah or Koran. you'll only piss off the True Scotsmen.
