i do agree that babyshark or anyone has the right to start a serious thread and respectfully discuss any subject they want, if other people come in & derail it with a bunch of garbage that should be split away & the original thread retained. i encourage all forum mods to do that in the future! i can do that for your original thread bs if you want to pursue further discussion.
You think you believe in tolerance of religion.
Yet there is a religion in the world that calls for the beheading of Christians, my religion.
Should we tolerate an intolerant religion?
i'm of the opinion that most religions including christianity have been co-opted to some extent over time as vehicles for facilitating various forms of oppression & i argue against accepting them (or any ideology) wholesale without the application of rationality. it's entirely possible to keep the good & throw out the bad. 100% of christians don't worship or practice in the same way and neither do 100% of muslims, the problem is in generalizing billions of people based on the highly publicized negative actions of some indeterminate radicalized minority. (radicalization is itself not ununderstandable either given the massive hardship these human beings have suffered as a result of war & being uprooted from their homes and ways of life & getting shunted from country to country like cattle, though violence is of course the incorrect choice.) it's the exact same reaction to perceived persecution that Ripe expressed, and e.g. saying that 100% of Finns plan to go on murderous rampages based on what Ripe says/does would be the same logic.
widespread practice of oppressive islamic fundamentalism in some countries is a very bad result of the people who support that interpretation getting into power & pushing that agenda, but to write off islam altogether seems a lot like e.g. throwing out christianity because at one point in time it was used as a justification for crusades & witchhunts. we can clearly see a great example in Afghanistan of how political revolution led to massive improvements in equality & education & humans rights across the board: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saur_Revolution
focusing exclusively on the bad & outright denying the existence of any peaceful practicing muslims is just mindless reactionary us-vs-them factionalism, it's simplistic and never the right stance and will never solve anything
