@pperrin: OK, got it: 'What is a Muslim': A Muslim is someone who endeavours to love Mohammed more than their parents, themselves, than life itself.
@pperrin: Having established what a Muslim is, the question is whether trying to love Mohammed more than anything is either sensible or desirable.
@pperrin: A good proof of loving something more than life itself is to die for that thing... #Islam
@pperrin: A good proof of loving something more than anything is to do he worst possible thing in the name of that thing... #Islam
@pperrin: A good proof of loving something more than anything is to die having shown that you value nothing but that thing... #Islam
@pperrin: Loving something more than everything else is tantamount to not loving anything else - not even liking it - hating everything else. #islam
@pperrin: Loving a single thing above anything else and wanting to demonstrate it seems to lead directly to total evil in all but that thing. #islam
@pperrin: Christ taught that you should love everyone. Mohammed taught that all your love should be for him. #islam #christianity
@pperrin: Xtians tend to show love of love christ by loving everyone. Islamists often seem to show their love of Mohamed by killing everyone else.
@pperrin: What Jihadists do is 100% sensible and rational within the islamic 'primary directive' of showing they love mohammed above everything else.
@pperrin: So at best a Muslim will love Mohammed and be benign, at worst the will show they love Mohammed by destroying everything else. No upside(!)
@pperrin: I think that concludes my Islamic Scholarship until/unless significant new information arrives. Shudder. #islam
