Is there anyway to stop Islam?
First off, Hi everyone, I'm new here to the forums, so if this doesn't belong in General, forgive me.
Anyway to the point:
Although I dislike and don't agree with any religion, there is one particular group who I find to be the most concerning. Muslims.
Why? Well like the other religions, they do babble crazy things.. But unlike a lot of them, they tend to act on these beliefs to the extreme. In fact, it's hard to say if there is an "Extremist" Sect when it's almost the majority. Sure, there are rational and maybe moderate Muslims who don't follow the Qu'ran word for word, but I believe it was a once well known youtube atheist "CapnOAwesome" who said that these moderate Muslims are actually the minority.
These people are so faithful to their beliefs, they are willing to kill and die for their belief without a second thought. They are pretty much the modern "Spanish Inquisition". They are willing to kill anyone who opposes their system of belief and life. They target religion, ethnic groups, politics, economical status, gender, sexual orientation, ways of life, etc etc. In other words, if you don't follow what they do, you're in the way of their crosshair.
Now aside from them proving themselves to be faithful to their religion by killing, they are also one of the fastest growing religions in the World. From what I heard (though this is probably not a fact) "For every one Muslim who leaves his faith or dies, fifty more will take his/her place". Can you actually imagine a World where there are even MORE irrational people who are willing to die and kill for their belief? All this for the religion of "peace"? (Ironic I know).
Also, unlike many other religions, who deny being crazy or irrational, I've actually seen Muslims who ADMIT to it. Sure, there will be those who deny Islam is evil (you may remember this from watching Bill Maher's Religilous, as they denied just about everything that they have done), but I've actually seen youtube videos of Muslims putting up videos that support "Jihad" and the "Mujahideen". Supporters will openly admit in comments that they are all for Killing "infidels" westerners, homosexuals, so the World can be a better place. And they are winning because of the various US, Canadian, British (and any other Country's) troops who are fighting against them. They admit, that the killings are a good thing. So these people not only openly admit they're crazy, but they admit they are acting on them.
BUT, I'm sure a lot of you already know this. So the question is: How do we stop this religion? It's growing like a plague, and I doubt I'd ever want to see them grow to an extent where their control and influence, can infringe on your/my freedoms and beliefs.
Do we "Kill them with kindness" ? Personally, I think this is just throwing them a bone.
What about Educating them? From what it seems, attempting to educate them is like talking to a brick wall. Sure you might get one out of a hundred to be open minded enough to listen, but even if you can provide fact against their claims, they will merely call you an "Idiot" or hope for your death.
Should Soldiers in the Middle East continue to fight? Violence and killing is bad. But with that war going on, surely its thinning them out somewhat. But can this really work against people who have once said "Don't pull out of Iraq, so we can kill more of your kind" ?
I fear them for their violence, and their determination to literally silence rationality with weapons. So if you have any thoughts, please share.
