*Terrorists, not Muslims. Also you don't understand why images of Muhammad aren't allowed. They aren't allowed because Muhammad shouldn't be worshipped like God is worshipped. Not like how Christians worship the image of Christ. So images of Muhammad were forbidden. And Muslims have to follow the example of Muhammad, which is why I don't really give a damn about the stupid drawings. It is obviously to anger Muslims but Muhammad taught us to be tolerant against hate and not to retaliate. Plus it's just the drawing of a random arabic dude since Charlie Hebdo has no idea how Muhammad looked like. The intention was to mock so if you don't react, no one will care to do it again. I do understand why people would be angry though.
But I am angry against Macron because he is stoking flames and causing further hate to be directed towards muslims while he is also causing more Muslims to hate France and the west. He is an idiot.
Regarding multiple wives, there are rules to that and it's restricted to 4 for Muslims but only if you can treat them all fairly so the default is still 1 marriage and it's more or less encouraged. Regarding the age of one of his wives, people of that region at that time reached puberty early and were married off early. Age difference wasn't emphasized as much in the Arab society. His first wife was like 15 years older than him. This is why the critique of the age of the wives is a modern thing and you can't find such critique from Islam sceptics even a few centuries back. People of the past had no concept of teenage years. It was just kid to adult and children as young as 12 went to war and some even ruled empires.
No one that draws Muhammad, is putting him on a shine to worship.
Not even muslims do that, and the rest that arnt of the religion arnt either.
"It is obviously to anger Muslims but Muhammad taught us to be tolerant against hate and not to retaliate."
The dawings are to make fun or joke about terrorists. Its not to offende muslims.
In a free society you have free speach, and you can use it with humor to make fun of people.
Even muhammed can be made fun of, even god, or jesus. It happends often.
Muslims are useing the "you cant put him on the same pedestal as god" excuse, as a reason to go around killing people.
When its clear, thats not what is happending. Someone draw him as a joke, a punche line, and apparently radical muslims are useing it as a excuse to kill people.
When bad people do bad things, its human nature to shame, or make fun of, or bad jokes about things.
It happends often, its fine to think its bad to do so, but no one is allowed to kill people over it (most countries dont allow people to run around and behead others).
Anyways these muslims that randomly think its fine to kill people in churches, because of a joke drawing, are insane.
Hopefully these sick people burn in hell.... after they spend the rest of their lives in a prison cell.
(not to mention, the church goers, didnt draw him (muhammed), or use the drawing. This is just angry people (terrorists), hurting innocent people)
"But I am angry against Macron because he is stoking flames and causing further hate to be directed towards muslims while he is also causing more Muslims to hate France and the west. He is an idiot."
Eventually someone has to come out and draw a line in the sand.
The line, is muslims randomly attacking and killing innocent people (not even connected to the event).
There is a problem with your religion.
Its not one of peace. Too many modern day muslims are over the top religious fanatics that go around doing crazy shit.
Its a issue. It needs to be addressed.
Sorry but you are just being ignorant and a bigot. Stop conflating all Muslims with terrorists and stop legitimizing the scummy terrorists as the representatives of a religion of about 2 billion people. Even if we accept the overly high number of 100,000 Muslims being terrorists, that's still 0.005% of Muslims. So about 99.995% of Muslims aren't terrorists and you're characterizing all Muslims based on a small minority. If my religion was the issue, it wouldn't e that low of a number.
Now let's say we also include the oppressive leaders that are Muslim and include even the armies of all Muslim nations as being oppressive, which is a stretch to say the least and also include all murderers that are Muslim, how much do you think that will be? At most it's 20 million and that's a huge huge stretch since one stat I looked had total Muslim soliders at 4.6million and that would mean 15.4 million other Muslims are murderers. So anyways, at this huge overexxageration, we stand at a GRAND total of 1%. So even with huge overestimations and being over the board, we get that 99% are peaceful. If you blame the religion based on that, you are just being biased and fooling yourself.
Now let's say all Muslims that are even a bit abusive like they hit someone once in their life and that number is 400 million which again seems a HUGE overestimation, that's still 20%. So even going too far down the rabbit hole, Islam nor Muslims, which are different entities in a sense, cannot be justified as not being a religion of peace. There isn't a problem with Islam so much as a few sick individuals. Trying to force an issue even based on 20% of the people that follow the religion and not on the scholarly opinion of the religion nor on the majority of Muslims is just to force your own belief on something. I hope this basic demonstration shows how silly Macron and the terrorists and the people with the same opinion of Islam are being with thinking that that's what Islam is.
So instead of listening to terrorists about a religion, listen to the vast majority of people that follow it.
