Lanfranc BS: Nationalism - a good or bad thing? (156* d) RE: BS: Nationalism - a good or bad thing? 08 Nov 16


Just a little background. When I finally lost patience with the Church of England discarding its traditions and the beauty of Cranmer and the King James Bible in favour of the banal and politically correct, I considered converting to Islam. Inspired by the example of Richard and Linda Thompson and encouraged by a good Muslim friend I have known for many years, I started to read the Qu'ran and Hadiths. I was appalled. If ever there was a religion obviously created by man, it was this. I next read a biography of Muhammed. This self-appointed "prophet" was evidently a murderer, a megalomaniac, a misogynist and a paedophile (oh, and an anti-semite to boot). If the Qu'ran was dictated by God, then so was Mein Kampf.
I was assured that no Muslim took the scriptures literally, but I wasn't convinced, so I reverted to agnosticism. 9/11 made me turn the corner to atheism and nothing that has happened since has changed my mind.

Before you call me a stupid bigoted old white man, do a bit of research (or just open your eyes). If you really want to have your illusions shattered, walk through Whitechapel or Manningham on a Friday night.

Islam has a 1400 year history of barbarism, slavery and slaughter and shows no sign of improvement or reformation. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
