I want to sent my sorrows to all the Russians here on lingq and everyone over there. Since the U.S. president sent the spokesman instead to give his condolences. I want to let all of you know that he is a douche bag, stupid obama. I wish that Russia can overcome these disasters and fight back with max power. I may not know what real Russians are like in real, but I know this for certain. You Russians are really a tough people and I hope you get your revenge on these muslims. I will support the Russian people in their time of need.
For the last 6 years I’ve been playing a little tune in my head. It goes like this: “Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.”
Thank you, Ozzy. It really is a trying time. Very negative, down mood in the air.
@OzzyHellBack: This site is not meant to discuss on politics or religious topics that may insult other members here on Lingq .
And for your information the Russians(their leadership and army) have been killing Muslims in Chechnya for years , not to mention that they are supporting the current regime that has killed over 200,000 people in Syria.
I’ve just went a bit through the news regarding the bombings and I have to say that it is wrong to harm civilians no matter what religion or belief one may have (may God forgive all the innocent people who met their end). The thing is that whenever this kind of stuff happens , the media immediately blames the Muslims with no proof whatsoever and everybody starts blaming us as if we are the lowest human beings on this earth .
On the other hand when Muslims are killed ( 1.5 million in Iraq and God knows how many in Burma,Afghanistan ,Egypt etc.) nobody cares ,as if cockroaches were exterminated not human beings .
“…On the other hand when Muslims are killed ( 1.5 million in Iraq and God knows how many in Burma,Afghanistan ,Egypt etc.) nobody cares ,as if cockroaches were exterminated not human beings…”
That’s not true! Tony Blair is the most hated man in the UK because of his support for needless war in Iraq and elsewhere.
Most people here (on both the left and the right of politics) are completely appalled by what is currently going on in the countries you mentioned.
I sense a really really entertaining thread in the works here. Quick, someone say something controversial
According to Islam a guy can have three wives. Now You gotta admit, that’s not bad!
(Downside is: you also get to have three mothers in law…)
@Easy_Rider: I wish it were like that but unfortunately we Muslims are made to be as if it were our fault for everything that is evil. The sad thing is that the majority of the Western world rely believes that the Qu’ran preaches violence and murders when in fact it is quite the opposite .
@Easy_Rider: In fact a Muslim guy can have up to 4 wives. This rule has been given to prevent men from cheating, among other things.
Seriously - four wives!?
I can only imagine…
“The sad thing is that the majority of the Western world rely believes that the Qu’ran preaches violence and murders when in fact it is quite the opposite .”
@Paule: Paule my friend , quoiting from a Holy Book without the entire context has no meaning. From what I remember you are an Atheist (it’s your decision) but just imagine that you did believe in God and that He told you to obey Him, if you don’t what should be the consequences ?
"quoiting from a Holy Book without the entire context has no meaning. "
Oh, the old “you took that out of context”-excuse^^
Do you want me to post the whole qu’ran on this thread, or what?
I guess these 500 or so “christians, jews and atheists are evil…painful doom awaits them”-verses are a message of love when you see them in context, lol xD
" He told you to obey Him, if you don’t what should be the consequences ?"
I don´t understand your question.
@Ozzy What you’re implying is horrible, I know a few Muslims and they’re the most moral and cultured people I know. Let’s also not get political like that, or do it a bit more sensibly.
To anyone who thinks Islam itself causes violence, I would direct you towards Indonesia as an example of a Muslim country… In fact, it’s the most populous Muslim country. Indonesia has a normal level of foreign interference presently and notably lacks a war enveloping its entire region. Are there any Indonesian terrorists?
Christianity was first primarily a European or Levantine religion, until spread to other parts of the globe through European imperialism and/or colonization. Most of these countries are relatively to very well off economically today, and suffer little exploitation or foreign interference. The result? None to very little religiously inspired violence.
@Paule For 99.999999999999 percent of Muslims, Islam preaches only peace. The Bible has stoning, pillaging, etc…yet Christians don’t see their religion as violent.
People need to stop getting their information about an entire religion from the mainstream media. They tend to distort things when we’re fighting a war, and their only rationale for fighting it is something which is primarily Islamic, or so they claim.
Don’t want to get political, just don’t want to see any unjust and misinformed discrimination.
See, I knew this would be an entertaining thread. Let’s do an Emeril and kick it up a notch. The world would be better off without religion, plain and simple. - YouTube
@Paule: You’re disappointing me. The ‘‘quoiting from a Holy Book without the entire context’’ is not an excuse because if for example you hear a story and you only relate a part of it , the meaning will be lost .
My question was pretty simple, if you felt that God existed and if you made more sins than good deeds shouldn’t there be any kind of punishment for that ?
@Spatterson: It’s without a doubt your right to believe in God or not, but if you don’t , you are not allowed to express the fact that those who do are this and that ( of course calling religion bull… is even worse ). I mean freedom of speech has its limits, so you can’t even think to say something like ‘’ those who believe in God are losers ‘’ .
And Paule I recommend that you should stop reading something written by some haters ( I would advise you read from there kinds of sites :Altafsir.com - Translations - التراجم).
Now we’re cooking with gas. It’s bedtime in Europe but I for one cant wait to see what delightful posts we have in the morning.
