No, you misunderstand.
I’m pretty sure I don’t.
Islam has no society which has a record of success in freedom and liberty of individuals.
Success in freedom and liberty of individuals isn’t actually what us Catholics are supposed to be using to gauge how good or bad a society is.
Islam has a history of conflict among it’s own followers.
Um, do we Christians really want to use internal conflict as a measure of how just or unjust, moral or immoral a religion is?
Islam does not seek to build it’s own society, it seeks to take over other societies and implement their mixture of politics and religion.
Seeking to take over other societies and implementing their mixture of politics and religion would be seeking to build their own society.
It’s this mixture of religion and secularism is what set’s Islam very different than any other group who seeks to conquer the world in the name of Allah.
My understanding of Islam is that there is no real division between what is religious and what is secular. As for societies that mix the two together, you might want to look at modern Western societies and the rise of such concepts as “cultural Christianity”.
Catholicism survives in all different facets of societies, be it, free, communistic, Royalty, Emperor’s, tribal, because Catholicism does not seek take over governments and to change the cultures, languages, customs or political views.
Catholicism survives because it is founded upon the truth and the truth always survives and because of God’s protection. As for Catholicism not seeking to take over governments, change cultures, languages, customs, or political views- um, yeah it does. It’s kind of the point since all those save language are rooted in or based upon morality and theology/philosophy of justice.
You are mistaken, Islam according to their teachings and prophecies and main goal is to convert or make everybody Muslim, Islam’s history proves they are successful at this only by conflict, conquering the innocent, remove any and all opposition by military might and implement secular rule and law mixed with religion power.
If Islam is only successful at this by conflict than we really shouldn’t be too concerned about Muslims using peaceful means by which to change society. We should in fact, if your statement is true and our end goal is to not have Islam spread around the world, be encouraging Muslims to engage in peaceful attempts since they apparently won’t work.
Islam does not seek to save souls in the name of love and peace, but to conquer souls by conversion in attacking another’s belief system with false pretenses, or if during conflict convert or die.
According to its teachings it does seek to save souls in the name of love and peace. You can’t cite its teachings to support one argument then the very next paragraph ignore its teachings because they invalidate another argument.
The Jewish and Catholic faith have a history which predates Islam’s existence. The Jewish and Catholic faith proves that the mixing of secular powers with religion leads to catastrophic outcomes.
Which might be of some value if the only three faiths in the world were Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and if there weren’t examples of the mixture of secular and religious powers that didn’t end in disaster. Also, Judaism has a history of the mixture of secular and religious power ending in disaster?
Islam being an infant religion compared to Catholicism and Judaism, has not learned this lesson. But has changed it’s technique to conquer instead of an all out war. Islam moves under the pretense of peace into free societies to out populate, integrate societies, become leaders in these societies to change and convert them to Islam.
Which conflicts with your prior comment about Islam only succeeding through conflict. It also assumes a global, organized, and centralized effort and mission in the Muslim community which doesn’t actually exists.
Once Islam reaches it’s pinnacle in a society, the majority will be Muslim and a false peace will transpire here. Speaking from Islam’s history not an opinion, Islam proves from her history in it’s own lands, when the majority is Muslim conflict, death and war ensues with Muslims. Mainly due to their secular government mixing with their religion.
Either there will be a false peace or a lot more conflict. You can’t have it be both.
