Criticizing Islam Successfully to People Who Don’t Want to Hear It

WHEN SOMEONE YOU’RE TALKING TO TURNS against the idea of criticizing Islam, switch to talking about Scientology. Talk about Scientology’s Fair Game policy for awhile, and once your listener agrees with you that the policy is unacceptable, make these points:

1. not all religions are the same
2. not all religious doctrine should be free from scrutiny
3. there is a useful division we can make between the political teachings of a religion and the religious teachings of that religion

If you don’t know about Scientology’s Fair Game policy, here it is in a nutshell: It is a written doctrine of the Church of Scientology that enemies of Scientology are “fair game” and may be (in the words of the founder of Scientology, “deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued, lied to, or destroyed.”

One might also point out that Scientology always rushes to sue its critics, while groups like CAIR sue Islam’s critics and the OIC lobbies to have all criticism of Islam silenced. In an earlier epoch, of course, Muhammad just killed his opponents. Hubbard never quite stooped that low, as far as we know…

Frankly, it’s an excellent approach, whether confronted by Muslims OR their dhimmi apologists, to discuss Scientology, Mormonism, and Islam together to help with baseline perspective.

There is a Christian television channel called ABN devoted to exposing Islam. They often engage in debates with Muslims and have live call-in shows. They did an episode of a show where the hosts talked about the similarities between the revelations of Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormons, and Muhammad. The similarities were astonishing.

The comparative study was not intended to criticise Mormonism. Instead, they attempted to show Muslims that Muhammad’s ‘divine’ experiences were not at all unique, and hardly point much less prove his prophethood at all, as Muslims would have us believe they do.

Not to be a spoil sport, but this “religious war” scenario is likely to get worse before it gets better.

Matthew 24:
9 Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.

10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,

Anyone who doesn’t see Islam and their self-styled reign of terror in the Biblical end times narrative, just isn’t looking, or plainly doesn’t want to see.
