Default What they really think

Just came across the following excellent video: What a billion Muslims really think. Now I'll warn you, it's nearly an hour long, but IMO most definitely worth your time. I found it both interesting and eye-opening. Some statistics surprised me more than others, and I think part of that is due to interaction with some Muslims online, who've helped open my eyes a bit more.

I do hope you all will watch this and that perhaps some of you will share it elsewhere.

I am alarmed at the perceived intentions of islam to take over the world..by violence if necessary : they admit it ! WE don't do that, we live-and-let-live. Religion is a lifestyle choice, not a political or legal system. They seem so ANGRY ! Fighting among themselves, can't even agree on a universal form of islam....one sect hates another....apostasy brings death sentence.(note, a muslim man (in Iran, is it?) who turned to christianity, now in prison, possibly to be killed . Any religion that does that is disgusting). Mutilation of young girls...forced marriage at age 11 or younger ? Barbaric. Rape can mean death by stoning for the raped woman...primitive, disgusting. Veils etc oppressive to women. 2 USA officers shot dead because OTHERS burnt the koran...along with other holy books, just a work of fiction, not fact. I.M.O., the onus is on the fanatic or dogmatic to show evidence that their deity is real, and not just fantasy and wishful thinking. Please see Chris Hitchens and Prof Dawkins etc., on You Tube, they explain what is so wrong, so very well. Thank you.

Tobypaws, I think we're all aware of Hitchens and Dawkins over here. Some of us appreciate them more than others.

Luckily for you and everyone else, I have neither the money nor motivation for such endeavors. And by lack of motivation, I mean, I'm too much of a lazy ass to impose my will on the rest of the world. That's just... Way too much work. I'd rather game on a Saturday morning.
