I'm just gonna swipe right and pass on the shjtstorm...
@GrumpyKat, it's only a shjtstorm if DJ Trump is involved.
@GrumpyKat, here's a shjt storm- they dress modestly, live humbly... And live in a society so secluded that the gene pool is affected. So much inbreeding that there rare genetic conditions such as Cohen's showing up at disturbing rates. I.e. In Ohio there is an Amish family where 3/5 kids have Cohen disease... There are only 100 cases world wide and 3 of them are in the same family. They have their own genetically warped version of trisomy 13 called Amish Downs.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, that's fvcked up
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I have Amish neighbors on both sides and have Amish relatives. Yes, their gene pool is effected from living in such a close community but trust me it's not as bad as people make it out to be. Nice good people through and through
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I'm assuming you mean Crohns decrease. (As someone with Cohen for last name, I felt that was important to correct ;)
@Sepirioth, Actually Cohen syndrome is an actual rare disease.
@Pal From Stupidtown, thanks for clarifying! Going to look it up. Learned something new today :)
@Pal From Stupidtown, it's actually Cohen's. Crohn's is gastrointestinal and Cohen's is genetic DNA disturbing. Very rare though
@SchroedingerPussPuss, not to mention the alcoholism, Spousal abuse, and puppy mills.
I mean yeah, the Amish live like it's a year before dynamite was invented.
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, Nobel invented Dynamite around 1895ish but the Amish reject all technology, including the steam engine built nearly a century earlier.
@Dr Simon Acula, I learned not too long ago that the idea that the Amish reject ALL technology is actually a myth. I forgot what the specifics are, but they only reject certain technologies. I don't know that much about the Amish though.
@TheLoneRanger, they are allowed to be 100% hedonistic during a special time when they reach adulthood. During this time they may drink, use technology, and indulge themselves in whatever modern conveniences they can obtain. Other than that they can have other people use technology for them (ride in but not drive a car)
I don't buy that terrorist are devoted to their religion, rather their own agendas and they twist a religion to reinforce those agendas
@ayyyy, problem is, it doesn't take much twisting. I took an Islam course in college and we had to read the Koran. Call me a bigot but I'm not too crazy about that religion, my beef isn't with Muslims its with Islam itself.
@Snarfel Burger, people like to think it is only Islam that has extremists. Christianity has had its fair share of bad people. The crusades for example. In Palestine in 1940s there were Jewish terrorist gangs that murdered British troops.
I can see why you have beef with Islam, especially after the cologne attacks NYE but Islam isn't the only religion to have radicals. Sorry for long post just needed to get this out there
@Splooge McDuck, no I understand that, and people usually mention the crusades when they talk about Christian extremism, although that was more ancient political conquest, Christians and Muslims fought back and forth for the holy land a lot back then, still no excuse for the things done during the crusades. The difference between Islamic Extremism and all those other religions is that they can get their reasoning and backing from their holy book, whereas other religions would really have to stretch some of their scripture. The best way to tell what a religion is like or should be like is to look at its founder. You have to compare people like Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed. What were their teaching and actions? That sort of thing.
@Snarfel Burger, the problem with Islam is not that the Quran gives reasoning for violence, but that a large portion of the followers are uneducated and illiterate while still being devout. So when some "cleric" shows up in your village preaching hate and claiming that what the Quran says is to kill, what else are you going to believe? Even though the prophet's teachings outlaw many of the things that those infidels practice.
@Snarfel Burger, Yeah I agree, I think that because in some areas of the east, you have to believe or possibly die, so more people are brought up to see other parts of the world as lesser. I know this applies to a small portion of the demographic, but any is always too many. Also here's a video that sums it up nicely - https://youtu.be/_ZiJehMXBpQ
@AliG, Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. - Sura 2:98
On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. - Sura 2:161
Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. - 2:191
Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme. (different translation: ) Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is God's entirely. - Sura 2:193
Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. - 4:76
But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. - 4:89.
O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people. - 5:54
Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme - 8:39
@AliG, O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there are 20 steadfast men among you, they shall vanquish 200; and if there are a hundred, they shall rout a thousand unbelievers, for they are devoid of understanding. - 8:65
It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land. - 8:67
Allah will humble the unbelievers. Allah and His apostle are free from obligations to idol-worshipers. Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers. - 9:2-3
When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. - 9
Fight those who believe neither in God nor the Last Day, nor what has been forbidden by God and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the tribute and have been humbled. - 9:29
@AliG, O Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey's end. - 9:73
Allah has purchased of their faithful lives and worldly goods, and in return has promised them the Garden. They will fight for His cause, kill and be killed.
Fight unbelievers who are near to you. 9:123 (different translation:
Believers! Make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Let them find harshness in you. (another source: ) Ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers....
Allah has cursed the unbelievers and proposed for them a blazing hell. - 33:60
Unbelievers are enemies of Allah and they will roast in hell. - 41:14
When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens. - 47:4
@AliG, Muslims are harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another. - 48:25
Muhammad is Allah's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. Through them, Allah seeks to enrage the unbelievers. - 48:29
Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate. - 66:9
The unbelievers among the People of the Book and the pagans shall burn forever in the fire of hell. They are the vilest of all creatures. - 98:51
Fight them so that Allah may punish them at your hands, and put them to shame.
@AliG, just a few, i didn't include verses or hadith about what you should do to disobedient women.
@Aegislash, that was a really good summary, he did an excellent job! If you haven't seen it you might like this video too. - http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry3NzkAOo3s
@Snarfel Burger, Brigitte did a good job putting it into words. Also yeah, political correctness should going the trash.
@Snarfel Burger, there is no difference between you and ISIS extremists who use the word of God to spread hate and destruction. You literally misquote the Quran the same way they do, you use it to show that Muslims are evil warmongers, and they use it to convert our younglings into warmongers.
Those verses you quoted were under very specific occasions and each and every single one of them is taken out of context. I have studied and memorized the Quran as a Muslim, and there are many more verses about not killing and leaving those who do not follow Islam alone as much as there is about killing them. And the ones that are about killing them which you just misquoted out of context, refer only to those who offend you first by killing or oppressing you. I suggest you go back and read the full verses which you quoted.
Please don't bother arguing. I don't think your hours or days of googling Islam will compare to my 20+ years of studying it and living by it.
@Mhael, no true Muslim ever believes in the murder of innocent people. Those who do are corrupt psychos that twist the true meaning of the verses you just quoted the same way you just did.
@Mhael, i'm not going to argue with you sense you, as a muslim, would definitely know a great deal more than me, however, you just excused these quotes. Whether they were in context or not, you cannot excuse any of these quotes because they still call for the killing of human beings whether you deem them "innocent" people or not. If there are as many quotes about peace, which I recall there being several when I took a class on Islam, as there are quotes about violence, then do you not see the contradictions in the Quran? Do you not see the problem? The problem is the Quran and the Hadiths can be cited to excuse killings when muslims are, as you put "offended". As stated earlier my friend, I have no qualms with you or other muslims, but all do respect, your religion is not one of peace even if most its practitioners are peaceful. "Show me a good muslim, and I will show you a bad muslim" which means, if you show me a good person who claims to follow the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed,
@Mhael, I will show you some one who is actually not following the teachings. I'm sorry we disagree, but peace to you friend!
@Snarfel Burger, I did not excuse them. I said they only apply in the occasions where you have been offended or oppressed first. Does the US constitution not call for arms against tyranny? Does common sense not dictate that if you were attacked in your house that you'd fight back and kill the attacker? Those verses were quoted out of context, that context being that they were all instructions given to the prophet in time where Islam was a minority religion being oppressed and prosecuted. There are verses which state not to kill the unarmed and to let those who wish to worship others do as they please as we deserve to do as we please. In fact Islam practices "to each their own" in almost every aspect. We are only commanded to fight when we are being fought against. Those verses were meant to encourage Muslims in times of weakness to fight back against tyranny and oppression. Sadly these days they are being used to oppress and perform tyrannical acts. Islam itself does NOT incite terror.
@Snarfel Burger, neither does it incite terrorism, but it is being misquoted to do so. Peace upon you too brother.
@Mhael, thank you friend! I wish we didn't see this differently and everything you said makes sense and I can definitely see why so many faithful muslims would hold true to this. I can say without a doubt that if Islam did not have its merits, then no one would be continuing to practice it, so it must have a lot of goodness and truth in it. However, I can never agree with it because the things I read and see in this world, the things your Quran say to do to women that are "disloyal" or the fact that the Quran has an opposite view of most religions about loving your neighbor and "turning the other cheek" makes it hard for me to be convinced. My cousin and a very dear friend of mine just barely survived a terrorist attack by Al'Qaeda in Burkina Faso last night, they had to hide in the bathroom of a restaurant where over a dozen people, not as lucky, were killed. I know these attackers don't represent all muslims but the fact that your scripture can be twisted in such a manner saddens me
@Mhael, and leads me to believe Islam is too dangerous and is in desperate need of reform. I know people like you are the only ones who can do that, and I thank you for taking the peaceful path.
@Snarfel Burger, it is to my extreme shame that people are being hurt in the name of a false Islamic state.... My heart truly goes out to anyone who ever suffers such misery as I have of my own. I don't agree that Islam needs reform, I think it is fine the way it is. But it is the people who misuse it who need reform, lots of it. Intense psychiatric help is required. I can only pity those who fall for the words of false clerics, and hope for God's forgiveness for their acts, as they deserve none from me or victims of their terror.
@Mhael, bless ya friend!
@Snarfel Burger, but read Leviticus in the bible, taken out of context it is equal to if not worse than all the quotes you just gave
@ajr12100, the quotes I gave were nicer ones, look them up yourself. You should read some of the things the Quran says to do to disobedient women. I wasn't putting the old testament on trial here, if its guilty of horrendously violent scriptures too that doesn't change or lessen at all what is written in the Quran. You can't take the commandment to sever an infidels neck out of context. What possible context would you put that in? haha. All I was trying to do with those quotes was to show AliG that the Quran does indeed give "reasoning for violence"
@Snarfel Burger, I never said that those lines weren't there..... I said the problem is that people are using these quotes out of context to misguide the ignorant. Just like 2:190 goes on from where you stopped the quote to say "fight in the cause of God against those who start fighting you, but do not transgress this limit"
That's just because Osama Bin Jebediah doesn't have the same ring to it
While you're not wrong stuckpixel, I do not believe you should be posting this. But hey, it's your app and I'm just a man on the toilet.
@Mr Dad, because freedom of speech is ok as long as it doesn't offend anyone. *prays people realize is sarcasm because either all free speech is ok or none is
What amuses me is all of these comments are for preparing for a shjtstorm... That never comes... Cause everyone just posts about getting ready for it!
@Imaginaut, that is the shjtstorm.
@Imaginaut, no, because if you argue you get down voted to hell and back. Just prepare for it
@Chunkybear40, so meta. My mind is blown
@Imaginaut, because you're preparing for a storm... And then nothing happens.. and its just shjt... So its a shjtstorm...
The Qur'an strictly forbids the murder of innocent people. It also holds the same 10 commandments as Christianity and Judaism.
@ayyyy, but it's ok to murder the people that God tells you to
@DaddyWurzel, you do know the ten commandments right?
@DaddyWurzel, thou shalt not kill. That's it no questions asked, murder is forbidden in all religions, in some of them including Islam and Christianity there are ominious verses that can be interpreted as a call for murder of opposing religions.
@ayyyy, only talking fictionally of course, but didn't God ever order anyone to kill???
Or was I reading it wrong
I'm impressed that this was actually uploaded in the first place.
I know I'll get downvoted but please read. There are only about 300,000 people that follow the Amish faith. Statistically there is a less likely chance that someone will do something so outlandish as that. However when compared to the 2.2 billion people who follow the Islamic faith (20% of the worlds population follow this religion) there is a greater chance that someone of this faith will perform a horrendous act such as "strapping an explosive to children".
@AgentK006, If we are going that route a huge part of "child suicide bombers" are in two major areas in history. The Vietnam War against our own American solider's. Which in Vietnam less that 1% is Muslim, 75% is non-religious, 12% is Buddhist, and 7% is Catholic. Also the only other major part in that is the Israeli-Palestinian war by the Palestinians which are made up of all the "People of the Books" Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
@AgentK006, Just because people follow a certain faith doesn't make everyone in that group a good person or a bad person. Just like everyone who puts an a uniform to protect this country, over seas or at home, as a police officer or solider, doesn't mean they are a good person. Judge people by who that are as a person, not the group they are in. You don't identify with the Westboro Baptist Church just like a majority or people in the Islamic faith don't identify with the people of the Taliban (fun fact the CIA actually created the Taliban, look it up, very interesting) nor those that did the attacks on 9/11 or Paris or any other atrocious acts made by people who claim to follow the Islamic faith. Just like we don't stand beside the likes that shot up the church in Charleston or the man who bombed the OKC building. So please anyone who takes time to truly read this; don't just listen to the news or the anger in your heart. The world is filled with love, truly.
@AgentK006, Yea.... No. The world is not truly filled with love. Thats blind ignorance. It has many lovely and wonderful things in it, yes. But to say that its full of love when the vast majority of the human population believes in one form or another a archaic, barbaric and disgusting religion is a falsehood. Take the Abrahamic faiths that, who make up about 60% of the worlds population, believe that unbelievers will burn in some horrible afterlife. Or, those who believe they should outright die/force to convert.
Wheres the love again?
And modern Jihad is perfectly justifiable according to Islam. Just look at Sharia law to know how just Islam is. Plus the various dictators of the past and present, regardless of religious faith, who are also deplorable excuses for humans.
I wish i had your naive sense of optimism but when you have to live in constant fear, it tends to make you a little pessimistic.
Amish? More like....Bombish. Huehuehue
I'm all for people having and developing there opinions, but I kinda came here to laugh, not discuss opinions, so...
@THEDANKLORDCOMETH , that there's an opinion I'm willin to discuss
Islamiphobia is bad.
That'll be all.
*swipes to next picture*
@I cut your face, why the hell was this downvoted?
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, Because people are assholes.
Not sure if any of you are the praying type but my cousin is in Burkina Faso and was at the restaurant and hotel that just got attacked today, please keep him and everyone over there in your prayers or atleast your thoughts... thanks!
Steal their land, bomb them, rape their women, occupy them in their own homes... Then see if they respond with violence. My point? No matter what your beliefs are, everyone has a breaking point. Muslim, Buddhist, agnostics, atheists... All of them.
Are you kidding me?
I don't promote hating on these levels. But i must ask everyone here whi this upsets, if this bashed the Christian or catholic religion would the community be fair and react the same? I feel the other major religions take alot of heat for what a few have done as well.
Screw Islam. Screw Christianity. Screw Hinduism. Screw all of these nonsense religions. If you want to believe in God go for it, but when you try to impose your beliefs on others you are a problem. And yes, Islam is currently the most violent and damaging religion. It isn't even close. You can hate ideology without hating people, and you still have a right to criticise someone's religion even if it offends them. It's called free speech.
@averagestuckpixluser, and as an atheist I have the right to down vote your comment, also free speech
@The Doctor Horrible,
Indeed you do.
@averagestuckpixluser, i'm a christian and you still get my upvote
Of course it got posted, freedom of speech...Mercia
Oooooooo bombs exploded.
Trump doesn't have funny pics, stuckpixel. Don't see why this shjt was posted
This community has gone on sjit since I've been gone.....what happened to old goat?
It's not wrong though!
Wear beards you know there not like cloths right they're kind of attached to your face
Whoever posted this pic has never heard of the Amish mafia.
I can't tell if this is using Amish people to say that that Muslims can also be peaceful, or saying Muslims need to stop and be more like the Amish. Either way, it's not really funny.
Yeah umm... Like virtually all Muslims are proof of that too...
Damn, no lie . Preach! Amen!
If they had known of this picture whichcraft, youd be burned alive.
All the abrahamic religions books will create terrorists, Islam was a decent religion before (1437 years ago)It stopped animal cruelty, slavery, war crime(burning food and killing civilians) but now people changed they are better, and it still has the same right and wrong as before( women less than men - execution of the gay and lesbian - killing liberals ) so people like ISIS are actually selfish they are killing for the heaven.
just in case, I want to say I'm a Muslim and I love islam.
I call racism
I feel like stuck pixel posts pics like this just to see how we'll react to them
Yay. Complaint time! *loads complaint cannon like everyone else*
You post this and not the funny pic I updated the other day?!
What the heck!!!??
*prepares for incoming shjt storm*
