Religious Morality and the Rampages of Muslim Men


http://www.wnd.com/2016/01/the-moral-dilemma-of-the-refugee-crisis/#!

While I find this article interesting and agree with many of its points, I don’t agree with its basic premise:

The John Adams Center explains, “Because the American republic is a free republic, therefore, it was designed for a religious people.”

In 1776, Adams wrote, “[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. 

It is in this context that we understand Adams, who had predicted the fall of the French Revolution in 1790 when he said, “I know not what to make of a republic of 30 million atheists.”

I don’t believe that morality requires religion unless “morality” in the above context only means “adherent to the principles of one’s religion.” Morality in that case would vary widely depending on the religion.

Muslims, for instance, have lots of religion. They have so much religion that they’re in danger at all times of being choked by it. Almost everything they do has a specific rule about it in their religion and a majority of Muslims are zealous about trying to follow every one. But what their religion teaches as “moral” are things we consider flat out evil: bestiality, gender apartheid, maiming, pedophilia, rape, slavery, stoning, murder of unbelievers, torture, censorship….

Ha. It may be true that we in the west tend to judge everyone by our own standards but I don’t believe our standards are based purely on religion. If they were, we’d still be marrying rape victims to their rapists or stoning her if he didn’t want to marry her; we’d still consider animal and child sacrifice as valid as Abraham did; we’d still be cutting POWs in half like King David did; murdering unbelievers; marrying little girls to old men; keeping slaves; raping and pillaging….

There’s a great meme on religious “morality” called “Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?” at http://www.humanistsofutah.org/2002/WhyCantIOwnACanadian_10-02.html

A lot of Americans still have religion, but, unlike huge numbers of Muslims, think for themselves as well. They don’t let the behavior of people in the Bible wholly dictate their behavior as Muslims do the behavior of their prophet or his dictates via the Koran.

No. American Christians, Buddhists, Jews, agnostics, atheists, Wiccans, and others all live under the same civil laws here. We all have the same rights and responsibilities vis-a-vis one another, regardless of our religion or lack there of.

Our “morality” is treating one another fairly and with as much respect as they treat us. We do our best to treat others the way we want to be treated and when we fail badly at that, we pay fines, do our time in jail, or could even face execution. Yes, that’s golden rule, but it’s a practical rule; it’s not an empty one based purely on dogma.

We don’t abuse each other inasmuch as we don’t want to be abused.

We don’t cheat one another inasmuch as we don’t want to be cheated.

We maintain our freedom of speech even if we disagree. Slander is illegal only because it’s spitefully untrue. Speaking the truth is only forbidden when it violates national security protocols. We have to be able to criticise on every topic, even religion, so to work out difficulties of all sorts and better ourselves.

You can call that “morality” if you want to, but it’s not based on religion. It’s just common sense. It’s what we need to harmonize and prosper as a united people from divergent cultures and ideologies.

In light of all of the above, understand this: the reason why the Muslim refugees in Europe and many other places are totally lacking in decency, ethics, morality, or harmonious conduct – whatever you want to call it – is because they are both utterly controlled an utterly frustrated by dogma alone. 

Small but serious point here: Gender Apartheid?  Is that even natural?  It’s results epitomized by the behavior of Muslim men would incline me to give it a great big ABSOLUTELY NOT!  That’s insane.

They don’t know how to think for themselves when it comes to discerning right from wrong. They really don’t. And their dogma just doesn’t cover getting along with others.

So either reject them as you would rabid dogs, or quarantine them while cutting their dogmatic chains and just teach them what harmonizing with other really means and how it benefits them. Otherwise, they’ll do no good anywhere but just spread like a disease.

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....

    I find it amusing reading this after a recent investigation of woman’s suffrage via the simpler wiki timetables. saudi arabia let ladies vote last year wee! america? the clarion of freedom technically not wholly til sixtyfive finland which mirrored our politics some 1906, new zeeland somewhere in the 1880’s but it’s rather amzing to me more than the dates is perhaps….perhaps… why… the afl grew to a membership in the usa of the just prior to women’s suffrage partially gained again since 1807…but afl had a million members and finally that swung elections or threatened them anyways what better way to bust a union vote than to let ladies of these federated fellows cancel out their sovereign say so? it surely wasn’t because the majority believed we should march into the social fair futures! but anyways the people could mirror the outcome of the imported folks during the vietnam war which fully assimilated their culturally to them correct cummunity not quite wholly american or from where they were from to that which had representation in our government and property. making programs happen and ad infinitum. the new crops of refugees can do the same one at a time or by community – or try to band together to make mini wherever they’re from come alive…however no one minds thir loss at home and they’ve got to make an economy…it sure wont gain support if they wish to flash the wrong traditions around.
