Really?! A “Good” Muslim?
Yesterday, I stumbled onto an online discussion wherein people were arguing back and forth about religion. It appeared that the participants were a mixture of muslims and christians, and they seemed to be having a good time verbally whacking one another with their insults. (Funny how “peaceful” and “loving” religious people can be, isn’t it?) Anyway, one of the posters made a comment that so-and-so was “a good muslim.” That got me thinking. What the hell does that even mean?! Seriously! What does that mean? I thought about it awhile, and this is what I came up with:
Perhaps the “good muslims” are the hundreds of millions of so-called “peaceful muslims” we’ve heard so much about (an extremely formidable force, one would think) who have risen up against the so-called (“very small number” of) “extremist” muslims, and who have openly and publicly denounced them and run them out of the religion so the rest of us can see with our own eyes that “those extremists don’t represent islam as a whole and that most muslims really are peace-loving, friendly people.” No… wait… that has never happened. Ever. Hmm. The so-called “peaceful muslims” certainly are all strangely quiet for some reason and seem to be allowing the atrocities and terrible injustices to continue completely unchallenged. No, the only vocal opposition to muslim atrocities against women, gays, and non-muslims I have ever heard of comes from non-muslims. Interesting, isn’t it? That’s important. Don’t ignore the obvious. It always means something.
Since islam (the religion itself) is sick, perverted, destructive, controlling, and evil, it seems to me that there is no such thing as a “good muslim” unless one means a person who is “good at” being a muslim (i.e., totally compliant with all the doctrinal dictates of the religion and who is completely submissive to its prophets and its “chosen” leaders’ instructions and whims — regardless how barbaric and harmful to others they may be). In that vein, perhaps the “good muslims” are those who actually believe that women are a lower-class of human being and can, therefore, be held in eternal bondage, be treated like property, be deprived of their most basic human and civil rights, and be raped or even murdered on a whim. Or perhaps the “good muslims” are those who believe that gays are an “abomination” and should be killed in the streets, or that girls and women should never be allowed freedom, equality, or an education. Maybe they are those who quietly accept and support the wholesale murder and oppression of untold millions of gays, women, and non-muslims (even if they aren’t publicly vocal about it, but they embrace it in their hearts because of their faithfulness to the religion of islam itself). Most muslims, I believe, know exactly what is going on in the name of islam and thus, are complicit through their support of and participation in the “system,” even if they may not actively participate in the most brutal aspects of it themselves. After all, it’s what muhammad told them to do… right? A “good muslim?” Really?!
No, there is no such thing as a “good muslim” as you’re probably thinking of it, I think. Doubtless, though, there are many inherently good people who just happen to be entangled in, and practice the islamic religion in a very watered-down, generally non-compliant way (which necessarily makes them “bad muslims” in my opinion, but it makes them slightly more appealing as neighbors and fellow citizens, because their actions and behaviors are far less dictated by their sick, perverted religion, and more dictated by their own, innate sense of human decency). No doubt many muslims hate being trapped in the sickness of islam but fear for their lives, because the penalty for apostasy is death. Interestingly, almost all religious people (regardless of their religion) belong to the same religious belief system as their parents (and were indoctrinated in their youth). Thus, most muslims were simply raised in muslim families and cultures, and were indoctrinated from their earliest years, so they have a warped perspective — a sense of right and wrong that is different from most of the rest of the world — and may not know any better (not that that is, or should ever be, an excuse for atrocious behavior toward other human beings). Many muslims are simply victims of brainwashing (youthful indoctrination) and are required by their religion and cultures to obediently submit (and don’t forget that islam means “submit” — not “peace” as many deceptive muslims will tell you) themselves to their religion’s doctrines and standards of behavior for the whole of their lives, so it’s not fully their fault that they think the way they do. If they aren’t actively harming others or supporting those who do, they need to be educated with truth (even if it offends them) — not hated. If they are harming others, they need to be stopped — and hated. Either way, islam (as a religious institution) is to blame for the atrocities that happen in the muslim world, and as such, it should not be accepted or tolerated as a valid or “peaceful” belief system. This is the goddamned 21st century, after all — not the 6th century!
And please remember… the term “muslim” is neither a racial nor an ethnic identifier — no matter what anyone ever tells you. It is not encoded into a person’s DNA in any way, so it is not a genetic identifier that one is born with and cannot help. One is not born muslim, or christian, or jewish. Everyone is born atheist. Everyone. Even you. One is either indoctrinated (i.e., brainwashed) into religion by their parents while in their youth (and is likely enslaved for life), or one chooses it (or is seduced into it) as an adult. Thus, being a muslim is a religious CHOICE. So remember, whenever one insults a disgusting, hateful, oppressive, destructive, intolerant, misogynistic retard religion (the belief system itself) one is not automatically applying the insult to all of the people who choose to (or claim to) “practice” that religion. Such derogatory labels often do apply directly to the individual constituent members of the group, though. Within the “muslim” group, for example, the same derogatory labels that rightfully apply to the religion itself, also apply individually to the practitioners and supporters of that religion, to the degree that they are personally involved in, directly or indirectly supportive of, or quietly tolerant of the atrocities, the oppression, the mental enslavement, the social intolerance, and the cold brutality for which the religion of islam is so widely known. Yes. They. Do. By personally involving themselves in the activities of, the continued existence of, and/or the expansion of a religious system to which many very derogatory labels rightfully apply, or by quietly supporting such a system (rather than actively speaking out in direct opposition to it), individual people have applied the same derogatory labels to themselves through their individual, personal behaviors and choices. They have personally applied these labels to themselves, and cannot, therefore, claim to be “offended” by their use, or falsely claim that you have applied such labels to them by calling the religion what it actually is. And think about this: People (even muslims who may be trapped in the system and have no way out) who do not support what islam is and does to so many millions of people, would never be offended in their hearts by the application and use of such labels — whether directed at the religion itself, or to those within the religion (even as a general reference) who are directly or indirectly responsible for carrying out, supporting, or enabling the nightmarish oppression and brutality that is islam. Therefore, people who make public claims of “being offended” by the use of so-called “hateful” labels when referring to islam (the belief system itself), cannot be in the group of muslims who do not support (in their hearts) the existence and spread of the religion and its inherent brutality. They cannot be “peaceful” muslims—unless they are also incredibly confused and misguided, because islam is anything but peaceful.
Need another example of “peaceful” islam at work? In the following video “good muslims” burn three poor victims alive for no other crime than being gay in a cruel execution according to the teachings of Islam and Islamic Sharia law. (**Warning: Extremely Graphic! This made me cry.)
The religion itself should be called what it is, though—sick, perverted, rabid, oppressive, controlling, bigoted-as-hell (even against other religions and cultures), brutal, merciless, backward, homophobic, misogynistic, and very, very, very destructive to society and to the proper and free evolution of the human race — not to mention the fact that it, like all other religions, is based on silly myths and fairy tales (as are all religions). Those who actively participate in such a religion and cause harm or oppression to others (and those who support and defend those who do such things) deserve to have those same labels applied to them. Yes. They. Do.
The religion of islam is like old testament christianity brought into in the 21st century — backward, bloody, brutal, controlling, merciless, fear-inducing, and absolute. This shit does NOT deserve to be respected or tolerated—in any form. No. It. Doesn’t. Listen to your conscience and your common sense — not to politically correct bullshit. Then call this religion exactly what it is. Your heart and your sense of human decency will give you the right words. Don’t over think it. Don’t rationalize or make excuses for it. It is what it is, as they say. A twisted, brutal religious philosophy like islam should never be given a pass in human society for fear of insulting the sensibilities of its members and supporters (and thus, be allowed to spread unchecked and ensnare other free peoples). Truth matters. It is true that all religion is bad for human society and the evolution of the human race, but islam is a special breed of dangerous and disgusting. Civilized people should not be tolerant of it or make excuses for it. Look again at the images above. Watch the video if you dare. These things are not the exception. These things are the standard in the muslim world. They happen every day. Islam is brutal. It is dangerous. It is unforgiving. It is final. Its spread — its very existence — should be opposed at every opportunity. I encourage you to speak out in your own way, and try to make a difference — for those who can’t. Somehow, you need to speak out. Every. Voice. Counts.
BTW, I just read this morning that it is projected that by 2030 (Only 17 years from now!), muslims will be the majority in England — due to extremely high immigration and birth rates. Think about what that means — to the people of England, and to the West at large! If (or rather, when) that happens, one very great domino will have fallen…
