Is Islam an Insecure Religion?
The question certainly is valid. And, in a modern society in the 21st century, where there diverse beliefs and opinions about religious beliefs, I think the answer is a definite "yes". Some readers will cite that other religions are also insecure, citing some extreme behavior eons ago that have absolutely no validity today-that was then, not now.
Islam is not inferior to other religions, but is the most insecure of them all. By insecure I mean, simple cartoons, negative press, cheesy campy videos incite its followers to kill, cause chaos, and destroy those who present satirical or sarcastic points of view about their Muhammed or Quran. The slightest deviance from the Quran or Muhammed teachings is not tolerated and those who do it face the most ridiculous punishment, that I am sure God would not call for, Man, yes, but not God.
Why is Islam so insecure that one cannot slander it, disapprove of some of its teachings, make satirical comments of? Other religions in the 21st century face the these situations all the time, everyday around the world, yet, you do not see Catholics or Christians killing or destroying another for their point of view. Even the Jews are often subject to satirical and offensive items, do you see them killing or acting like petulant teens who just really want to raise hell. Those Muslims who claim to be offended are really venting and doing Satan's work really quite well by killing and destruction- Satan's Modus Operandi, yet, these Muslims fail to see it because of the hate and vile they spit out because of a cartoon or video! Maybe these are dumb Muslims, the uneducated, who have nothing to lose, so why not, destroy and target your anger. While educated Muslims may be offended, their intellect probably prevents them from acting the anger out against imaginary culprits. They do not automatically follow whatever some religious states as dogma.
Islamists claim the religion is tolerant of others, yet, just like in Germany under Hitler, or in the USSR under Stalin, if you say anything against it, cause slander or mock it, you are quickly silenced either by a visit from police or blind followers, which threaten and beat.
