Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

Modus said a lot of things, many of which are in direct contradiction to Islamic teaching, for instance he is in complete denial of the common Islamic teaching that there is no compulsion in religion, could go on and on, but frankly I don't have the time, maybe some of our other posters could point ...

Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

Well if you live in an Islamic country and publicly assert that half the Koran is heresy, maybe you would be charged with heresy. I'm not saying there is anything ideal about Islam, but stick to the facts don't make up fake interpretations to fit your own prejudices, the Koran is very difficult to t...

Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

Modus, You can't prove anything by quoting the Koran out of context, and making up your own interpretations in direct contradiction to those of recognized Islamic scholars.

Re: Theravada Buddhism and Trans Folk

I feel unease about all "minorities", and it's because of how they often get their way, even at the expense of the rights of others. When I was going to school, there was just one black girl in the whole county. And this black girl was very mean -- she acted superior and as if the rules that other ...

Re: Muslims, Islam, U.S.A and Europe

So now the problem includes Europeans from Albania and Kosovo immigrating to Europe?? No, the problem is Europeans from Albania and Kosovo migrating within Europe. What, pray tell, is wrong with people from Albania and Kosovo, are they inferior to people form Romania or Poland, and less deserving o...

Re: Buddhism and Islam in Asia: A Long and Complicated History

I think you're mostly right about Muslims DooDoot, but I should say Muslims were more intolerant of idolaters than they were Jews and Christians which at the time at least did not practice idolatry. That being said how did India end up 80% idolatrous Hindus if Muslims had taken over and exterminated...

Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

For instance female genital mutilation is not Islamic, it is cultural, it originated in Africa and is still principally an African phenomenon, both Islamic and Christian communities in Africa practice female genital mutilation, it almost unheard of in most middle Eastern countries, although I have h...

Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

Asokan Edicts Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, honors both ascetics and the householders of all religions, and he honors them with gifts and honors of various kinds. But Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, does not value gifts and honors as much as he values this -- that there should be growth i...

Re: Will certain Buddhists on DW please stop disparaging other faiths

When reading some of these posts it becomes clear some of these people have never had any Muslim friends, and when you hear there opinions, it becomes clear why they don't have any Muslim friends. It is a position of weakness in one's faith to criticize other religions, if you are secure in your bel...
