Where is your logical assumption? Do you have a trigger thought? What is your concept of radical behavior?
Joe Herring says,
In Catholicism, there are many tenets and traditions that are rooted in Scripture – Confession, Holy Communion, the Communion of Saints, etc. In Protestantism there are many beliefs that are shared, along with some that differ greatly from Catholic practice. Judaism is no different – without Judaism, there would be no promise of the Messiah, and no Jesus Christ.
None of these beliefs are considered to be “radical.”
Why? Because they are mainstream elements of our faith; prominently featured in our shared history and an integral part of the Holy Bible.
So it is indeed a curiosity when the tenets and traditions contained in the Qu’ran and the Sunnah (Mohammed’s instructions on how to live and conduct oneself) which clearly prescribe specific acts of violence up to and including death for both Muslims and non-Muslims, are described as “radical” by governments and media.
If a Muslim follows the tenets of his faith more closely than others, he is not more “radical,” he is more devout.
It makes people feel safer to think of Islamist supremacism as “radical.” It frees them from the obligation to address the real reason behind Islamic terrorism and Islam’s concomitant cultural assaults on all things western; that reason being the unassailable fact that those things are as mainstream in Islam as the tenets and traditions of Christianity described in the first paragraph are to Catholics and Protestants.
Quit making excuses for the anti-social behavior inherent in Islam. It ain’t what you think it is…
Perhaps instead of looking at the tenets of the Muslim faith as radical, we need to take a harder look at what the people of the Muslim Faith DO when they encounter radical behavior. Do they support it? Do they claim it? Do they celebrate it?
If so… It may not be such RADICAL behavior in their minds. They may be normalizing that behavior, and acknowledging it? Think before you respond, but please do leave a response or comment and let us know what you’re thinking.
