“All four schools of Sunni law, as well as the Shia variety, call for the death penalty for apostates. Most Muslim scholars say that Muslim religious law – sharia – requires the death penalty for apostasy.”

    Allah the merciful and compassionate……….I Kill You!! (mimicking Jeff Dunham) πŸ™‚

    The first 3 commandments in the christian faith are warnings about other gods and allah wants apostates murdered. You would think having the power to create the universe would make them a little less insecure? πŸ™‚

    Since most religions imbue their gods with human emotions – jealousy, hate etc., it is no surprise that the books written by these gods(???) would espouse these views.

    Because god can’t seem to do his own dirty work, humans are just SURE he wants them to kill FOR him.

    If apostasy requires death, why doesn’t god do his own killing? Since he’s not doing that, maybe the Muslims have it wrong?

    Once again Solomon, you get to use words with your own “special” definition – the fact that most religious initiates are involuntarily indoctrinated as children by their parents, it cannot be said that these children, when grown and more intelligent than their parents, want out, means that they are traitors in any sense of the word.

    That parents would inflict islam on their own children says a lot about the parents, and the religion that could force parents to do this.

    That islam resorts to such extremes is yet another indictment of the religion illustrating that it cannot play nice in today’s society and must coerce the unwilling to do the unwilling.

    Thought this might cheer sol up a bit (or at least take his mind off bum love).

    Anyone for a Burqa fashion show?


    Apologies if this has been posted before but it’s so funny.
