    Is radical Islam compatible with a free society?

    2000 nigerians are believed killed today after a Boko Haram attack. Yesterday many died in Paris by local muslims. In france on new years day alone, nearly 1000 cars were burned by islamic "protestors". ISIS continues to flourish.



    World wide, the death toll continues to climb-whats clear is that the presence of islam often leads to violence, in fact many of the worlds current military conflicts involve islam in a significant way. We live in an international world, where relations between nations matter, and where many value a free society.

    I don't think any radical ideology is compatible with a free society.

    Interesting so since you see Islam as incompatible with a free society, do you think steps should be taken to curtail it?

    I don't see what can be done. Here in the United States secular elements are just strong enough to keep the country from going full Christian theocracy, but Islamic theocracies are pretty much the rule of thumb in predominantly Muslim countries and more progressive factions seem too marginalized in many of them to oppose them effectively.

    Islam is fundamentally incompatible with liberal freedom, as are all traditional religions, including Christianity. Although some can and will bastardize it like they have Christianity.

    While distinctly Islamic positions should not be supported, Muslim conservatives should be supported in their fights in their own countries against liberalism.

    What? Oh, I'm sorry, I don't know how that image got there. Unfortunately I'm just not computer savvy enough to remove it.

    The problem arises when they try to export their ideas to, say, France.

    ... what? You are aware that "Muslim conservatives in their own country" support female genital mutilation right?
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    It's practiced to a degree in countries you might not initially suspect. I was shocked to learn that not only is it widely performed in Egypt, but that the number of women who've undergone fgm is upwards of 75%.

    But yeah, the fight against liberalism is way more important.
