A group for those without religion, as well as those who oppose it. Atheism and Agnosticism and Anti-theism.
If I apply the word "bigot/racist/chauvanist" in the broadest possible definition. I wouldn't be surprised if 70% or more of the world could be identified as such. This video is one of the most oversimplified arguments I have ever heard on Muslims. Disregarding all statements from Trump.
If someone have a problem with Islam, that's fine. But this video, is less about constructive criticism and more about fearmongering.
Its about accepting the reality of what people in moderate Muslim countries believe in & attempting to understand there is a huge need in those countries (and in Islamic countries) for non-fundamentalist non-political moderate view of Islam. You would never see 25% of christians, jews or buddhists accepting suicide bombing as a justified response against anyone (but thats whats going on in Islam) because we accept the separation of church and state, human rights, rule of law and civil & political freedoms. You wouldn't even have 1% of those groups accepting that unless its some really isolated hate group or cult. You also would not see over 50% of populations of those religions accepting censorship, harsh death penalties & mens rights over women like you do in Islam with Sharia law, because Islam has a very long history of slavery, murdering apostates and expansionism. Once you accept the figures you have to start to find who the actual moderates are, what case they make to support a compatible view with democracies freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and equal rights between men and women & start defending that.
"But this video, is less about constructive criticism and more about fearmongering."
Facts are about understanding not fearmongering. The next step after admitting there is a problem is finding constructive ways of addressing it.
I don't necessarily disagree with you on these points, I dislike the video and how superficial it is on a very complicated topic.
Their facts are not untrue, but neither are they the whole truth. We are presented with just enough facts/information as to conclude that most Muslims are radical and therefor support terrorism.
This video doesn't promote understanding, it uses statistics to advance an agenda. Its no different that the statistics used in democratic elections. I always find it funny how the statistics always seem to support both sides.
"because Islam has a very long history of slavery, murdering apostates and expansionism."
Sure, because only Islam can claim to have such a history, and they were the worst in that regard also! Lol
