This page is
devoted to articles and links concerning Islam. As a religion, it is
contrasted with Christianity. As a government, it is contrasted with
democracy. As an economy, it is contrasted with free enterprise. If
coercion is the mark of a cult, and if Islam is coercive, then as
a cult, Islam would have to be contrasted with
religious freedom. It is an issue of fact
whether Islam's belief system is maintained by coercion,
rather than by example and persuasion. A number of Islamic
nations are known to use intimidation, brutality, violence, and
outright murder to enforce their internal rule. But is that
politics, culture, or the religion itself? Can these be divorced
from one another in an Islamic nation? Is "Separation of Mosque
and State" even possible?
fundamentalists advocate the proactive killing of all
infidels (non-Muslims), not just killing in self-defense against
invading armies. That means they promote and condone attacks against
non-Islamic civilians. That type of unwarranted aggression against
non-combatants is called terrorism. Many
believe that terrorism is not a necessary component of Islam. Others
believe it is. So does the message itself drive this
terrorism? Or is it the interpreters of the message?
need to inform ourselves about those who would use violence. Out
of love and concern for those who may be enslaved by vicious
cults using Islam as their justification, we need to hear Islam's
message clearly, understand its practices, and refute those
assertions and practices which contradict the truth of God
recorded in the Bible.
