Fitna, The Movie

Law At The End Of The Day has a good roundup here (current link provided).

If Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist, is still receiving death threats for his cartoons, then Fitna, by Dutch director Geert Wilders, is really designed to provoke. 

Not for the faint of heart.

  1. Islam teaches and demonstrates that human dignity is not above Islam and therefore this is why Muslims are prone to violence and killing. Islam is prone to great human evil in the name of their religion, because human beings are just fodder for greatness of their god Allah.

    Human dignity and reason are below obedience to Allah. This is why Islam is an enemy of true humanity. For Christians, to worship the Holy Trinity, one must hold reason and human dignity in high regard.

  2. Thanks for reading.

    I agree that a fundamental problem in Islam is the placement of a transcendental God (and the interpretation of that God through mosque and mullah and the Quran) at the center of its teaching. If you’re making reasonable arguments that threaten such beliefs, then you’re in great danger.

    Otherwise, I don’t find my conversations with Muslims to be any less reasonable than with the faith arguments I get from Christians.

    I may be missing something here, but you’re pretty much arguing that Christianity holds reason higher within its thinking, and I would say no, that reason has forged new thinking outside of Christianity and forced it to change; in part by continuing a tradition that was pre-Christian and Greek.

    Clinging to Christian metaphysics may lead you to be less tolerant of Islam, and may not be good for any of us in the long run.
