'Innocence of Muslims' reaction..

2 years, 6 months ago

Hey guys, I’m sure you guys have heard about this film that has been released dissing Alah and the now violent reaction Muslims around the world have had. There were riots in Sydney just yesterday where a few police officers got injured and stuff. It’s a very interesting reaction that has happened.

What I find most important is how great of an opportunity this is for all of us to how we react when a religious group like this acts in this extremely violent way. Discussions I’m sure will happen about all of this and do you guys agree that it is really important to sympathise with the muslims? Have compassion for their souls that have been caught up the emotional pain of an idea? I think it’s important that when people will inevitably start reacting in a negative and racist way towards the muslims that are now acting quite ridiculously, it is up to us to point out that they don’t know any better. We should not fight fire with fire. We should love them, have compassion for them. Anything like this, when it happens is a fantastic opportunity to spread more love in the world. Any kind of upset with the worlds anger is a potential opportunity to open our hearts and minds to seeing everyone as a person. A loving being that might be lost, so they need more than ever our love.

What do you guys reckon? Has this discussion been talked about in your lives and how have you reacted? What are some of the reactions you’ve witnessed?

Love you all. :D

“Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King

I bet your opinion will cause a lot of people to call you idiot or whatsoever, because it seems to be absurd to love people like that. I agree 100% with you.

Innocence never existed in human nature. Religion prevents people from connecting with each other. That’s all I have to say.

I’ve learned that spontaneous reactions usually dissipate quickly unless they are the result of a build up of an idea. I just try to assess the event and see if it’s a problem. If it is, then i assess the reaction of others. If it isn’t, And your comment about how they “don’t know any better” is irrelevant in that they do know better, they just dont care enough to logically think about there actions because for one, they have a very strong basis of opinion set into their personalities. And two, they see that others with the same mentalities are grouping together, so they think they probably should too. Im just trying to hold out until Humanity somehow gains universal logic, or until we get rid of our emotions. Preferably the former, with the latter only being better than death by ideology caused war.

Islam is a piece of shit religion that needs to be eliminated, along with most if not all religions. Islam, however, is an imminent threat to both Western civilization and ultimately mankind itself. :(

@adamsmith, I disagree. I don’t especially like the religion because I feel like most big ones, it aims to control people (even Christianity does that); however, most Muslims are not what you say they are. The extremists ruin everything, whether they are Christian or Muslim.

I feel that the people who made that film did so in order TO INCITE violence. The people who reacted to it WANTED to be violent. Both are “to blame” and things are not helped by a whole lot of western imperialism and doing things for our own interests without regards to whether we are dealing with murderous thugs or not.

I don’t think the people who are violent want our love; however, it will help our own souls to feel empathy (as much as possible) rather than feeling hate.

@cloudstuck, I think it’s just wrong to insult any religion for that matter, so why did they want to make a movie about Islam to hurt people, because they knew common sense with the whole cartoon drama few years ago it would get out of hand. I just dont understand why they cant come up with something fun for all people, and not something hurtful to some group of people.

Religion for that matter is a sensitive case for every believer, so it would hurt if someone making fun of it, because of the emotional and serious connection to the religion. It feels like insulting family or relatives or friends, it s just wrong. People feel comfort in their religion, they want to feel appreciated as human beings, they feel release in their religion, why make fun of something that powerful in someones life?

When we clearly define what rights are basic to us all and what rights are earned by fulfilling certain defined responsibilities, then we as humanity as a whole and as individuals can truely be free and justly enforce that freedom. To help do that, contribute here:
