Why Dubai's Islamic austerity is a sham – sex is for sale in every bar | World news | The Observer


Quote:
...in reality Dubai is a heaving maelstrom of sexual activity that would make the hair stand up on even the most worldly westerner's head. It is known by some residents as "Sodom-sur-Mer".

No, no, no, this simply can't be. Muslims just do do that sort of thing. It is only the West that is decadent.

Talking Us vs. Them! Right vs. Wrong.

Of all the world's belief paradigm supporters, religious organizations and their fanatical devotees are by far the least ethical, and can express their endlessly egregious behavior because they have learned how to hide behind arrogance and finger-waggling self-righteousness.

The relatively young populist religion of Islam, with it's built-in sexist chauvinism and reliance on illiteracy, provides ample evidence of such misdeeds. And yet, they claim the exact opposite, and call us morally rudderless!

Amazing, huh? Fighting the truth with lies. Amazing!

By comparison, I conclude that only atheists are reliably moral, ethical and trustworthy!

Yes, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, Karl Marx, Larry Flynt and, just for fun, Barak Obama Sr. were all great role models.

YES that is Existing

THEN WHY ?

Because of that there are Black sheep in every community may there are

some Muslims who are dishonest, unreliable cheat ..etc

and Do not adhere to the teachings of their religion ....

If you want to judge how good is the latest model of the "Mercedes"

car and a person who does not know how to drive sits at the steering

wheel and bangs up the car, who will you blame? The car or the driver?

But naturally, the driver. To analyze how good the car is, a person

should not look at the driver but see the ability and features of the

car. How fast is it, what is its average fuel consumption, what are

the safety measures, etc. Even if I agree for the sake of argument

that the Muslims are bad, we cant judge Islam by its followers? If

you want to judge how good Islam is then judge it according to its-

authentic sources, i.e. the Glorious Quran and the Sahih Hadith...

then , Judge Islam by its best follower i.e. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh)


If you practically want to check how good a car is put an expert

driver behind the steering wheel. Similarly the best and the most

exemplary follower of Islam by whom you can check how good Islam is

is the last and final messenger of God, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Besides Muslims, there are several honest and unbiased non-Muslim

historians who have acclaimed that prophet Muhammad was the best human
being. According to Michael H. Hart who wrote the book, The Hundred

Most Influential Men in History, the topmost position, i.e. the number one

position goes to the beloved prophet of Islam, Muhammad

(pbuh). There are several such examples of non-Muslims paying great

tributes to the prophet, like Thomas Carlyle, La-Martine, etc...

I am aware that there are some Disobedient Muslims ...It exists in all communities....

the media is in the hands of the westerners who are afraid of Islam..

The media is continuously...

broadcasting and printing information against Islam. They either

provide misinformation about Islam, misquote Islam or project a point

out of proportion ...

Islam will remain without doubt the best religion ..


Thank god

The Guardian is Britain's version of the New York Post, where the name of the game is yellow journalism. So quoting from it hardly makes a case one way or another.

If anything, Dubai is guilty of hypocrisy; they hold foreigners to different standards (or lack thereof) than their own citizens.

Was Pol Pot an atheist? - FreeThoughtPedia

Larry Flint couldn't be more right with his statement:

Religion has caused more harm than any other idea since the beginning of time. There's nothing good I can say about it. People use it as a crutch.

And porn has nothing on the the power of some of these churches or the mass killings in the name of religion.

Well, I'm not going to spend hours researching it, but at least according to Wikipedia Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao were atheists. This makes sense since Communism is officially atheist. And I'm not saying Larry Flynt is as bad as those guys, but I didn't want to only list mass-murderers so I included him (and I do think he's a pretty sleazy guy. Even if one doesn't have a problem with porn, I would not call defaming people or publishing nude photos of former first-ladies secretly taken by the paparazzi, and violating his marriage vows and divorcing several women to be highly moral, ethical, and trustworthy. His daughter also claims he sexually abused her as a child.)

There have been Christian leaders for a long time, and some of them did terrible things. There have been atheist leaders for about a hundred years and they've managed to kill more people than just about all the Christian leaders from the past combined.
