I lived most of my life in a Muslim country and was forced to learn Q'uran verses as a child in school.Nope, Q'uran is not peaceful at all. It promotes beheading of non-Muslims who don't convert. It also promotes beating "wives" and a man can marry up to 4 women but a woman can't.In my home country, Muslim mobs had to kidnap Christian minors, rape them and force them into Islam. Not only that, but even the law enforcement didn't help Christian minorities because those mobs are "applying the true Islam".So yeah, the fact it says "Religion of Peace" doesn't make it one. Anyone can make false claims.
Have you read the Bible all the way through? Because it basically says the same shit
I’ve also lived in a Muslim country and met some or the most tolerant people I’ve ever met. And I live in the Pacific Northwest, and that is saying something
@g3taclue You don't even show any care towards Christian minors being kidnapped and raped by Muslim mobs? Wow. It speaks a lot about you.You just got angry once I exposed Islam. Ok, enjoy your bias. You will regret it when you see the real face of Islam soon :')
Yes North Korea, China and the late Soviet Union were all such “tolerant” atheist societies.
Dude you don't know what you talking about Islam, Christianity in fact every Abrahamic religion is against concept of secularism.
Most of the concepts of paganism are actually taken from Hinduism and when I say Hinduism it includes many different types of practices paganism is 70%hinduism.
@r_sha Not true. Early Paganism wordwide developed when humans first developed a basic understanding of the need for fertility. Although he had no idea of what it was, he realised that he needed a partner (s) that would give him children to care for him in old age.He learned that he needed a fertile land such that nature would provide enough wild produce to feed his family. Similarly, he needed wild animals to be fertile to produce food, and skins for basic clothing. All based on fertility.He realised the importance of warm summer weather, and the sun, throughout the different seasons. It developed, in many countries, into sun worship. Just as Christianity took many aspects of its ritual from Paganism, so other religions did, too.To understand the logic behind all this, one has to ask what was important to early mankind. What ne needed. Food, drink, warmth, shelter. That leads to animals, plants, a partner and children.
believe that nature is sacred and that the natural cycles of birth, growth and death observed in the world around us carry profoundly spiritual meanings. Human beings are seen as part of nature, along with other animals, trees, stones, plants and everything else that is of this earth. Is this a short summary of paganism?
@r_sha For modern Paganism, yes, it is. Nature, and the Wheel of the Year.
Ok sister believe it or not but your religion is a crude form of Hinduism.
@r_sha Maybe, but I doubt if Hinduism needs to believe in the Wheel, as I am sure there was no need to follow the seasons like we do in northern climates. I also said Paganism probably started, in most countries, when there were no names for religions. Hinduism was probably very similar to Paganism, as early man's needs were very similar.

Russia is mainly Christian Orthodox too and they respect Muslim minorities. Even though Muslims don't respect Christian minorities in Muslim countries.
Yeah I was thinking Buddhism too.
