Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

So then you agree that if someone, eg. a terrorist, proclaims themselves to be a Muslim, then they are. Period. If a group of other Muslims put a Fatwa on them, really has no affect on that persons beliefs, does it.




If the Catholic church ex-communicates you, that doesn't mean that you are no longer a Christian.

as MrV says, talking utter nonsense.



By your definition, if the terrorist said 'god is great' then all you can infer is that he believes in a divine power. Theres absolutely nothing in that statement that makes it unique to any one god. Even the word 'god' is an abstract term for an abstract being. that small, 3 letter phrase is not enough evidence in itself.


Now, when you add on, as MrV has mentioned, the fact that thousands of religious scholars and experts have actively denounced ISIS, i am much more inclined to think maybe theyre more of a cult than a 1.7billion-people movement.


If the catholic church excommunicates you, you cant claim to be working in its interests, can you?
