Why would you need an explanation of that?  Why are asking that.

Mourning with Manchester - an article in the Humanist

https://thehumanist.com/commentary/mourning-with-manchester

I like the readers’ comments more than the article.

No, you won’t find anyone publically rejecting the “bad” parts of any religious texts and never will unless we all get past the superstitious nonsense of belief in a god.  So it would be best for humanity to reject religion period, the good, the bad, and even the in-between parts is any such parts exists.

Obviously you are not paying the slightest attention to the Christian world. Not that you have to, but even apologetics sometimes cordons off the smiting as only pertaining to those historical moments.

United Methodists are split 50/50 worldwide on the gay issue, they will probably split
Lutherans recently split over that
Many Christians participate in anti-war protests
Even Muslims, the last Caliph of the Ottoman empire declared the cutting off of hands for thievery to no longer apply

Stoning remains, though. As does keeping women in purdah and males as the enforcers.

‘They shouted ‘this is for Allah’, as they stabbed indiscriminately’ - How the London terror attack unfolded

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/04/shouted-allah-stabbed-indiscriminately-london-terror-attack/

While the intelligence agencies and the police look out for this kind of incidents, the intelligentsia must discourage Islamic moronic thoughts and lifestyles, and the governments must take preventive actions against spread of Islamic fanaticism.

Suk; You need to respond to this from the other thread about what the cause is before I will take you seriously.

I am no apologist for the atrocities that the West has committed anywhere.

Then what is this:

All wars have collateral unintended civilian casualties; that is why I do not think of war as a civilized thing. However, I have no doubt that the US airstrike was not intended for killing the civilians.

Sounds like, “well, it’s okay because they didn’t mean to do it.”

I do not know who this Imam Tawhidi is; and I probably do not care to. The problem needs to be solved by people who would not play games involving Islam or Islamic fanaticism. Theresa May seems to be getting closer to getting it when she says, “enough is enough”.

“Enough is enough” PM May says after London attackers kill seven

I don’t know what to make of Tawhidi, this is just a funny example of an imam saying the Koran does in fact “teach murder”, and a western liberal is in denial of that.

As for May’s comments - we’ll see. I wouldn’t expect too much.

Murder of an innocent child in the name of Allah IS MURDER MOST FOUL!

Saving an innocent child in the name of Allah and losing your life doing it IS TRUE MARTYRDOM!

How about murdering an innocent adult such as an atheist, an agnostic or an apostate in the name of Allah?

In any case, taking some 1400 years old preaching for a ‘complete code of life’ forever is utterly foolish, to say the least. A serious problem with too many moderate Muslims is that they are unwilling to acknowledge that the so-called holy books of Islam have plenty of injustice, hatred and atrocities. If they acknowledged that those books actually have verses/edicts that should not be followed, they would not have been the breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists. It is naïve of some non-Muslim intellectuals to think that terrorists grow with no supporting environment.

As an atheist, I agree completely.
Do you agree with my condensed comparison ?

I am not clear about what comparison you made, or if your comments in post 69 were sarcastic or serious. But I do not support murder of any kind; and I prefer talks and laws over martyrdom to stop murders. And, of course, I do not support doing anything in the name of Allah or any other kind of imaginary species.

Read the post again, more carefully.

What I am saying, that regardless of motive, giving your life in the act of Murdering someone is still Murder, and will be despised by all
OTOH; giving your life in the act of Saving someone is Heroic, and will be praised by all.
