The Taliban say they're going to rule Afghanistan under Shariah law, which is based on Islamic tradition and authority, such as the Koran.
So I'm curious. Many commenters on this blog are religious. They believe in God. They accept the authority of religious leaders.
The Taliban are religious. They believe in God. They accept the authority of religious leaders.
Explain then, religious commenters, why you likely reject the Taliban's religious beliefs, while you consider your own to be so worthy.
The Taliban think they are acting in accord with the will of God. Other religious believers feel the same about their own faith. Yet how is it possible to say that this religion is a danger to humanity, and that religion is a benefit to humanity?
Adherents of every religion think their religion brings benefits to humanity. The Taliban certainly believe this.
Is anyone who comments here willing to defend the Taliban? If not, how is it that the Taliban's religious beliefs are considered to be bad, while other religious beliefs are considered to be good?
Muslims believe the Koran reflects the message of God. Christians believe the Bible reflects the message of God. Sikhs believe the Adi Granth reflects the message of God. Mystical religions believe the utterances of a guru reflect the message of God.
Again, since every religion considers its teachings to be correct, how is it possible to criticize the Taliban's religious beliefs without criticizing all religious beliefs?
Me, I choose the latter approach. I criticize all religious beliefs.
