Having lived very happily in a tiny village sandwiched between a predominently white area and another town where the population was 34% British white, with a Pakistani doctor and a Sikh landlord (who remains one of the nicest people I've ever met), I guess that I've lived in both scenarios whilst in the same house.

None of my friends, colleagues or neighbours knew that I'm atheist, because nobody was bothered. People are people first and foremost. However, I'm visiting my 86yr old aunt this week, and if I told her I'd been to church, I know for a fact that her answer would be... "You don't still believe in all that crap, do you?!" :D I've heard her say it many a time.

Milo is proof that you can disagree with 99% of what a person says, but still have a rare moment of accord :D

What would your dear ol' aunt say if she heard you'd been to the local mosque for prayers?

So there are some six centuries to go for the Koran interpretations to become less radical :)

Yes, and in the mean time trucks will be run over on people and bombs exploded at concerts ki:mad:lling children.

Basis is that violence in the Koran is mostly defensive where as the Bible is more offensive :)

For example, until recently Mr Arthur Wagner was a board member of the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party and now he has converted to Islam and changed his name to Ahmad.

Because he was a gay cuckold, got azz-foocked by a Muslim, and fell in love. It's not easy to be logical when your heart is blind.

Happy to help if your google skills are not up to par. :p

Firstly, this video is only one year old so is a big improvement for you. :p

Secondly, Mohammad Tawhidi is a self-proclaimed Muslim scholar. He claims to hold a licence from the Islamic Seminary of the Holy City of Qum (Iran).

There is a letter from Al-Mustafa University of the Holy City of Qum that said Tawhidi started at the university, but dropped out before qualifying.
The university said they do not recommend Tawhidi for lecturing in any way, he has no competency to do religious activities or to preach sermons."

It is a pity you do not post better researched and credible videos.

This Al-Mustafa U.? The one led by Supreme Leader Khamenei, with the purpose of exporting the Islamic Revolution?

It's no wonder they don't like a Muslim who advocates for peace..

Marton, have you converted yet?:D

There must be some disagreement among the extremists.

No, not converted yet; still a liberal snowflake :)

& what are you?

"some disagreement among the extremists" What are you talking about?

Mohammad Tawhidi was not a good student and failed, is that so hard to understand?
My point was that he claimed qualifications he did not have.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)
 
I got some red blobs from ''The Unbiased Mod'' who said it was a warning that posting anti-Muslim rhetoric would not be tolerated.

I assume all the people who posted anti-Christian rhetoric all received a similar warning?

Really? Feminism? :rofl: I guess there're a lot of frustrated males who'd sell women's hard won and well deserved rights on some fantasies, if given the opportunity...but seriously? Why Westerners convert to Buddhism or other religions or philosophies? It's fashionable, maybe? As it was or is with all that Oriental wisdom? Yoga, Buddhism, taoism, you name it. People want to try something new, more profound they think - since they were never encouraged to know or believe what's in their own culture. Maybe they're attracted a little by the self-victimisation of their new co-religionaries. Maybe it's that strong feeling of belonging that Islam proposes - an Ummah, a "Nation" of those who believe. Something that Christianity doesn't offer for a looooong time - a sense of belonging.
Ah Tom, you need to pay more attention to the human psyche and to the social dynamics. :-)

I'm a libtard snowflake, too. Hugs!

TBH, I hadn't watched the vid. with Tawhidi until after I wrote my post, which is why I edited the 'some disagreement among extremists' part.

I am guilty of assuming that he was one of those radical Muslims who promotes terror and violence. Instead, he is one of those radical Muslims who promote peace..
