Throughout my life I’ve been given easy access to see current events around the world. Access to a computer, the internet, and generally unbiased news sources( Not you Fox or MSNBC) have given me a good look at the constant violence and human rights violations that we(humans) subject each other to. A pretty common theme, I may have cherry picked for this blog, is Islam and Muslims.
I just recently saw a video done by Steven Crowder in which he goes and asks people in Dearborn, MI to make him a wedding cake for a marriage between two men. The thing is, Dearborn has a HUGE concentration of Middle-Eastern immigrants and Muslims. The big surprise is they don’t make his cake for him. Obviously homophobia is wrong and these people are bass ackwards, but why aren’t they getting a lawsuit? Where’s the outcry? Where’s the slacktivism from Tumblrinas and SJW’s?
Now let’s get some things straight, I don’t hate Muslims just because they’re Muslims. I hate them for the actions of their culture, for the actions of their religion, and the actions of the countries that they are the majority in. I just think it’s hypocritical that people will sit there and condemn christianity for being backwards and wrong, I most certainly think it is, and then in the next sentence they will call Islam a religion of peace. It’s enough to make one’s blood boil. Both are screwed up, both are terrible, and both have lead to extreme and disgusting violence. “But Alden, christians came and killed muslims in the 14th and 15th century!” Yeah but, Muslims are starting a Jihad against any non-muslims in the 21st century.
The moral of the story is, not all Muslims are a blight upon the Earth that need to be mercilessly wiped from existence, only a portion are. The second moral is, no it is not a religion of peace and those who practice it are not any better than christians. People hate Islam because of what people do in it’s name, and that hatred isn’t a product of those white devils telling lies. Hatred is the natural reaction to the cowardly, disgusting, killing of civilians in droves in the name of a god. If you’re a muslim or a christian and someone hates you for it, you should probably think twice about why you currently practice that religion, and stop blaming them for being hateful.
