http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/11/middleeast/isis-syria-iraq-caliphate/ There is a thread about religion and taxes which stems from the separation of church and state. Think about this for a moment. Why are we continuing to allow religion to have a stupidly unaccountable status?? I don't mean just in personal philosophical differences people think is so important to argue over as you can't change everyone's mind and people are being distracted in thinking this is all a matter of personal opinion like different colors when the real issue is there are key aspects of their ideology that is illegal or should be today. The real issue is and should be "anything" that obstructs or is against humanity should be a 'legalistic' issue, not a religious one that is continually allowed to remain bizarrely unaccountable because it is a 'religion.' What brainwashed fools, not justs their adherents but society who has become equally brainwashed to let them off the hook, for no real valid reason. hello???? splash water on your face, wake up. The bolded part is key and ubiquitous. The majority of muslims don't agree with the 'interpretations' of the koran, just as fundamental christians rationalize away or excuse their extreme members with the same, all for the sake of preserving their religion, even if it is a constant and dangerous breeding ground for atrocity and evil. If it was not for 'religion', this would be taken to task differently and sanely as in realistically. With all the brains in the world, you are telling me that no one can edit these books??? There is legitimate grounds for it, even legally. If there is a propaganda out there calling for the mass murder and prejudice against groups, the government would be on it like white on rice to abolish it or make it illegal. Nazi propaganda has been suppressed to the point of annhilation and you are telling me that a fucking nasty, blatantly serial mongering books (koran and bible) that are still in circulation today that contain not only the justification of genocide, rape, human trafficking, child abuse, ritual murder/sacrifice, mysoginy, enslavement, prejudice etc is given a greenlight and a free pass just because it's adherents give a lukewarm opinion that those parts are passe' now or they can pick and choose what's in fashion or fits their current sensibilities but oh it is still the word of god (essentially condoning)???? WTF??? They are the most bs fucking group of people that keep everything muddled and grey and you allow them this manipulation. There are good things in religious works but these books need to be edited based on any texts that would be considered illegal today because it is not a work of fiction to RELIGION. It is a guide to their life and political leanings and stand. HELLO??? Any christian or muslim has no ground to stand on that their 'book' should not be edited on legal ethical grounds or else it should be abolished completely. Their excuses don't fly. They say it shouldn't be edited because it's historical. Again, nonsense because it is a religion/movement and besides has even been edited many times, even whole books left out and added before. They should be made to be accountable and that is they either agree for anything that would be considered illegal today to be edited if they want to continue to practice their religion or they forfeit the right to practice this religion or preach/propaganda to others and these books will be relegated as works of fiction/poetry/history admixture and studied for what they are. These books and members believe and say that this is all the word of god, the literal metaphor of an ultimate authority and society is going to let them keep doing that?? That is the most dangerous ideology ever because the concept of god's justification is unquestionable or is perfect to them. The 'religion' hallowed label is a ruse you should wake up from and should not be untouchable. Some hallowed bullshit on a pedestal, for what?? This is mass delusion and brainwashing to the hilt, even affected and made the secular community a puppet so it can keep it's illegal doctrines under a false priviledged status . It's ridiculous. Until society takes a real stand and calls a spade a spade and rids itself of the unethical (today illegal at least in most civilized societies), you will have groups like isis and proponents of that religion saying it is just a mistake in interpretation or they are taking it 'literally'. If you can take it literally, then that's blatantly the problem right there like a bullseye from getgo.
