Get Answers to Your Questions About Muslims in America

It's an uneasy time to be Muslim in Missouri. As Chad Garrison reported earlier today, there are no less than three pieces of legislation currently before the state legislature designed to prevent state courts from considering the Islamic religious law of Sharia when making decisions.

(We tend to agree with the commenter who said that's about as necessary as laws on kangaroo hunting and property rights on Jupiter -- is this really a problem in Missouri we need to legislate out of existence?)

But, in the midst of this seemingly anti-Muslim climate comes another in a series of community discussions on Islam, led by the St. Louis chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the country's oldest Muslim-American organization.

Tomorrow afternoon, the group is hosting a seminar and Q&A session about Islam in America.

"We will be focusing on issues like the rights of mankind in Islam, the concept of democracy and government in Islam -- especially our obligation to our country as American Muslims," says Naseer Ahmad, president of the St. Louis chapter of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, in a press release. "We want the community to take an active part in a dialogue. Any and all questions are welcome."

Back in January, the group held a talk that brought together local leaders of many different faiths to discuss the peaceful goals they share. Tomorrow's talk starts at 4 p.m. at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, 9001 Clayton Road.

The political violence of the Koran is eternal and universal. The political violence of the Bible was for that particular historical time and place. This is the vast difference between Islam and other ideologies. The violence remains a constant threat to all non-Islamic cultures, now and into the future. Islam is not analogous to Christianity and Judaism in any practical way. Beyond the one-god doctrine, Islam is unique unto itself.

if we're going to exclude Shar'ia law in MO, we might as well also exclude the Book of Leviticus and the Code of Hammurabai, just to name a few antiquated legal systems.

The Koran is a much more violent, hate-filled book than the Bible is.

Islam is a cancer that feeds on ignorance and hatred towards non-believers.

For the record, I'm an agnostic who thinks that all organized religion is shit. But Islam isn't just another religion. Other religions don't advocate violence toward non-believers as Islam does. It is this reason that Islam must be eradicated, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
