Quote# 52606

Cherrypicking is not allowed in Islam. A person who cherrypicks is considered a hypocrite and their fate is worse than non-believers.

"Moderate Muslims" are either ignorant Muslims who don't know much about Islam (these are usually the same people who are pro-secularism and anti-Shari'ah) or those who truly are hypocrites (and these are also pro-secularism and anti-Shari'ah but they deny core beliefs of Islam as well, because this allows them to cherrypick).

Christians can choose to not follow the laws of the Old Testament or basically any law because their religion is a faith alone religion. Islam is not a faith alone religion, but also a religion of deeds.

And if you sincerely want to know about Islam, you would avoid bagodix and his exaggerations. Go to a Muslim website or even a Muslim forum and ask all the questions you want. You can even ask things that you believe are controversial but you won't be getting much done here because bagodix will use his trusty JihadWatch to support his viewpoint. He still hasn't shown why he is right and anti-Semites are wrong.

But cherrypicking is the only way to avoid cognitive dissonance when reading incoherent, self-contradictory religious texts.

Here's a cherry he forgot to pick: "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

Islam is not a faith alone religion, but also a religion of deeds.

- We have seen some deeds done in the name of Islam. Need I say more? Mass murder of innocents in the name of any god is repulsive. In religious terms it is sin.

- Moreover, the later Qur'anic texts that are held to supercede the milder earlier texts in relation to other Peoples of the Book, must pose a question of choice. This in itself is cherrypicking.

a mind far far away

I think somebody needs to study their religions a little bit more.

I think you should investigate your own religion.

Good that it's a deed religion instead of the bullcrap christianity beleifs.

Still, some of your "actions" are pretty repulsive.

bagodix has a great name, in fact I think I just used "bagfull of cocks" as an insult the other day.

"Islam is not a faith alone religion, but also a religion of deeds."

I'm guessing the word "deeds" comes from the same word-root as "decapitations", then.

No wonder cherries are so expensive, if you aren't allowed to pick 'em. Ohh a different kind of cherrypicking.. damn..

11/22/2008 6:07:16 AM


But cherries are so delicious!

There's actually a point here. What the author fails to mention, however, is that JihadWatch summations on Islam are not the work of JihadWatch's Admin - they are direct quotes from Muslims, in many cases leading Muslim jurists and clerics.

Sorry, folks, but Islam is NOT a religion of peace.

"Islam is not a faith alone religion, but also a religion of deeds"

Deeds like flying planes into buildings with the hope of murdering thousands of innocent people? THOSE kinds of deeds?

11/22/2008 6:45:38 PM

Cherry picking is essential for that thing to make sense at all.

"Cherrypicking is not allowed in Islam"

...but it is in right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity*. Yeah:

Explains a great deal. Now, what was that 6th Commandment say...? Oh yes, that's right. You lot cherrypick from that too.

Moral: Ah, the hyper-hypocrisy of the fundie - both Christian and Islamist. It knows no bounds.

*- Especially that part of Leviticus used by you lot when justifying your own persecution of LGBT people
