    I've been reading alot of info about Islam and people living under the yoke of Islam lately...OMG. People being put on death row for speaking against Muhammad, people being killed for blasphemy even after being found innocent in court. An unarmed man in pakistan shot over 20 times by his own bodyguard because he spoke against the blasphemy law they have. That guy who drew the Muhammad cartoon got thousands of death threats. I was reading something on the net about Iran cracking down on watergun fights because it's immoral....wtf. In Islam if a woman is raped and can't produce four male witnesses it counts as adultery...wtf. almost 18,000 attacks worldwide done by people who hold this faith dear since 9/11. Does anyone really think Islam is a religion of peace or is that politically correct bullshit? I don't know bout ya'll but if I hear Allahu Ackbar being yelled by someone I'm ducking under a table lol.

    I'd take the WT, but I would hard pressed to do it....

    Islam is some crazy stuff. They would love to rule the world with Sharia Law.

    Yeah Sam real crazy stuff. Mohammed married one of his wives when she was 6 and consumated the marriage when she was 9. It says that Mohammed ascended to heaven on a flying horse....wow

    This reminds me of a cartoon about Fidel Castro. He is standing in front of a crowd of volunteers (who would lose their jobs if they were not there) and utters a high-sounding "Socialism or Death". Somebody from the crowd thinks this is a question and says, "Socialism, of course!"

    I think I would choose the Watchtower. But I would qualify my answer. I would choose the Watchtower because it doesn't have the power to stone me. I realize that they would do just that if only they had such power.

    I read a book by Ibn Warraq called "Why I am not a Muslim". "For some reason", he has to write under a nickname and is in hiding. Ibn Warraq gives plenty of reasons why he became, in WT lingo, "an apostate". Many of those are very similar to what you would find in the most extreme forms of Christianity. This is not surprising, considering the origins of Islam and Christianity.

    So please don't construe my choosing the Watchtower as support for it, or lack of contempt, or anything positive at all.

    Spotted a pic of Paradise yesterday while skimming through some 1950's litterature.

    The man was wearing a dress and the woman a headscarf.

    Give me liberty or give me death. Neither.

  • trailerfitter

    I'd choose neither.

    Why is it we are given so few choices? choose god and go to heaven or don't believe and burn in hell... not much choice at all. The is much said in the UK about this but by only a few who are branded racists. The UK government are bending over backwards to be multi cultural whilst young muslims are causing problems inc. crimes such as rape. They are backward and represent the true face of a retarded belief in God. God is cruel.

    WT is not cruel but I often wonder what would life be like if there had been some sort of Armageddon and god was ruling and the JWs were the only ones left. Would anyone who had an impure though be killed instanlty on the spot by the ruling powers? What would the Gb do if there was no secular laws in place to restrict actions of the corporately insane??
