Nothing like religion to turn otherwise sane people into attempted murderers.

They thing is they are not otherwise sane. They are indoctrinated

That's what I'm getting at though. Religion made them this way.

u/Huntin-for-Memes Jan 25 '23

Their culture made them that way. Americanized Muslims do not do this. Muslims from several Muslim countries do not do this. They were raised like this, they didn’t consciously choose to be this way. They haven’t been “otherwise sane” since they were children.

What a moronic and uneducated thing to say. Lol

u/Dastardly_trek Jan 25 '23

Why was it a moronic thing to say? They flipped his car because he burnt their holy book. If they weren’t religious they wouldn’t care or at least wouldn’t care enough to try and kill somebody over a book.

So by your amazing logic if an atheist punches someone, I’m to automatically believe they did it because of their atheist beliefs? Like what? Lol

u/Dastardly_trek Jan 25 '23

Lol no They attacked someone because he burnt a symbol of their religion. I doubt the reaction would have been the same if the book he was burning was anything else. Why do you think they attacked him? Do they just love books that much

u/PakLivTO Jan 25 '23

Yes exactly. That book and faith or belief means more to them than anything else in the world. People get bent out of shape if the American flag gets disrespected or someone takes a knee during the national anthem. Why then is it so hard for you or anyone to grasp that burning a holy book which basically guides every Muslim In the world would be insanely disrespectful?

The people getting bent out of shape over a flag or kneeling aren't necessarily the counter arguments you're hoping to make.

u/PakLivTO Jan 25 '23

Yes it is. Both are part of a belief system. Muslim faith just happens to be larger in size and the people who follow it are not going to be pushed around either.

But as I said. This isn’t the way to do it.

I never said it wasn’t disrespectful. Of course it’s disrespectful. They still ran someone off the road for their religion. It was a religiously motivated attack.

Burning the American flag is disrespectful, yet in any country with freedom of expression the right to do so must be protected at all costs. The same as any other form of free expression.

Yeah because the deceased actually existed.

u/Dastardly_trek Jan 25 '23

I don’t know the backstory on this video but it looks like the guy’s burning the book were trying to get a reaction and they look like assholes themselves but religion was the reason the women went after them with their car. Just like religion is the reason people shoot magazine publishers for printing a picture they believe is blasphemous or kill a doctor for performing an abortion.

Burning a book of which there are millions of copies and going to a funeral and ripping up pictures of the deceased are not comparable. Yes there are ways to provoke people without religion obviously. But in this case religion was the reason.

If he does because for example you said atheism is stupid then yes. But atheists don't do that, but certain religion with penchant for beheading does.

u/PakLivTO Jan 25 '23

Lol. What a narrow minded fool you are.

u/miodoktor Jan 25 '23

Unfortunately I'm not open minded enough to worship man that raped 9 year old.

Keep going my man. You’re just making my point for me.

As a lifelong atheist, my observation has been that people believe what they want to believe. Yeah religion maybe has some impact on the details of people's behavior, like in what way they are violent once they choose that path or the specific things they choose to lash out at. But people who choose to follow a violent religion and choose to interpret it in a violent way do so because they are violent people.

That's why Saudi muslims are far more violent than Indonesian muslims, and why the religion with the most violent religious text (Judaism) doesn't have the most violent followers. It's the society that makes them violent, religion is just the excuse.

Religion is very broad

Sikhism or Buddhism, or heck even Christianity, in all honesty tend not to quite produce... this

(Tho having said that, American trumpist evangelism very much can)

u/palerthanrice Jan 25 '23

Ah yes my neighborhood has been having trouble with Buddists killing people over disrespecting their beliefs.

Only on reddit are people bold enough to disparage all religion but afraid to point out which specific religion is the main source of these attacks.

u/ABitOfResignation Jan 25 '23

And what religion made the people burning the books - who are generally being cheered on in the comments - become far-right nationalists who wave Nazi flag through the streets and harass people for their religion? The women here are clearly in the wrong, but this comment section is bizarre to me.

u/NotHenryGale Jan 25 '23

Likely Christianity.

u/ARetroGibbon Jan 25 '23

These people are far from sane my friend.

I'm non religious myself, but from a Muslim family. I know a lot of Muslims and not one would try to murder someone or even risk scratching their car because of a book burning.

Some wouldn't even care and some would be Livid. But non of them would go full GTA lmao... that's insane.

u/Automatic-Lab5409 Jan 25 '23

Did religion make them that way or was it racism, hate, and bigotry over someone's whole life that slowly broke them down until they snap
