This is a prime example of people abusing religion for their own designs. There needs to be a marked distiction being this type of abuse of religion and those many many people who are religious but abhor this type of violence.

Whodat ok so what your saying is, even if there was no trial of some leader who was given the death penalty and even if there was no building collapse, there would have been riots yesterday because of a crazy religious group?

You have to look at everything that is going on. There might be religious jargon thrown in but that doesn't make it about religion, it's a mass appeal technique. Try to listen to mass appeal techniques on you in the course of a month and ask yourself if the thing is really about what you're really being told.

If you'd like a little more info on this group, Hefajat-e-Islam, a fundamentalist Islamic group, you can find it here.

They were formed specifically to "protest the gov'ts secular policies in education & politics."

So yeah, totally not about religion, just as you suspected...

@paperduck - Did you actually watch the whole 39 second clip you posted?

She says there were protests in Feb over a war crimes trial, then there were protests because people want those responsible for the building collapse killed, and now they're protesting because they want a law passed to make blasphemy a crime. She's simply saying that there has been a lot of tension between the gov't & citizens the last few months.

Still think it's not religion? Well, according to this article, "The protests are led by a group called Hefajat-e-Islam, which set the gov't a May 5 deadline to introduce a new blasphemy law, reinstate pledges to Allah in the constitution, ban women from mixing freely with men and make Islamic education mandatory."

I realize it's fun to just blame religion, claim victory and move on, but as i suspected the truth isn't quite so.... Now, anyone REALLY interested in what's going on would need to look into all this stuff, but that would require thinking and it hurts sheeple to think.

Are we sure they aren't protesting the government for the collapse of that shoddy building last week killing 600 people?

@Angilion- Very well put. This is an on going cycle with religion and it is in NO way exclusive to Islam. They just happen to be the ones doing it right now.

What is it about Islam that turns normal people into uncivilized, violent savages?


Same thing that did the same with Christians centuries ago.

When you combine a power-orientated religion with sufficient resources to have some power and seize more, it will do so and it will be violent and oppressive about it if that's what's required to take and keep power.

There are other ways for the same thing to occur, but religion is particularly prone to it because religion includes the claim of divine authority for seizing power and forcing everyone to obey. That puts the mob absolutely above all law, all morality, everything, with an absolute requirement to force everyone to obey.

And yes, this will happen whenever and wherever Islam (or any other power-orientated religion) gains enough power. Religion is like that, always has been, always will be.

I dont know, perhaps the oppresion from the catholic church for decades? Burning, destroying and murdering everything in a much more advanced culture (at the time). All in the name of the same god, just a different prophet?

Oh... and the fact that the people from those little rural cities probably have little to no education, combined with nutty leaders probably helps too.

"What is it about Islam that turns normal people into uncivilized, violent savages?"

I've been asking myself the same question quite often recently. The best thing I can come up with is that it's simply because their religion dictates their lives and doesn't allow them to partake in the fun that the rest of infidels all over the world have. All of the rules/laws that come with Islam basically denies them the right to do anything that's considered fun, which also tends to relieve stress. I guess they've come to the conclusion that if they're miserable then it's only fair that everyone else is miserable as well.

They were already less civilized or poor. Following the persons that blame promiscuity for earthquakes just points them in the same general direction.

@geogypsy: Anything to keep Quebec happy I suppose. I've always hated that law, too.

For those who don't know, if you live in Quebec, you MUST put your kid into a french school, even if their first language is english (unless you move to Quebec from another province, then english school is ok).
