How Islam checkmates Liberalism

Islam is so powerful liberals give up the principle of freedom of worship and free speech in order to fight it. Islam even has the Islamic equivalent of Article 9* of the European Convention of Human Rights and the First Amendment**. It is verse 2:256***. Game, set and match for Islam.

The Koran is superior precisely because it enshrines the religious tolerance that is not even mentioned in the Bible.

If you were guided by truth and logic, you would acknowledge this at once. However, most people are not guided by Truth and Logic, sadly, but their subjective emotions of Pride and Anger, Lust and Greed, Sloth and Gluttony as well as the deadly sin of Envy. It is even sadder that our politicians have abandoned altogether the rule of law because they no longer even know what a principle is. If the media were guided by Truth and Logic, my ideas would be given some publicity. The liberal media even now conspire to ignore me, declining to mock or attack me, for that would give me the oxygen of publicity. Make of that what you will.


* Article 9 – Freedom of thought, conscience and religion
1. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.

2. Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.

** First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

*** 002.256
YUSUFALI: Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.
PICKTHAL: There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.
SHAKIR: There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
