Kabu

Pro

Muslims in all the world claim that Islam is a peaceful religion, that it is a religion of equality and happiness. They also claim that Islam respects every human Muslim or not. They also claim that Islam honored and respected women.

"Islam is a religion of peace" is a bold statement that even Islamic sharia laws contradict it. Islam has a cruel and primitive punishment for apostasy (leaving Islam) which is death. The true punishment for stealing in Islam is cutting off the hand of the perpetrator. If a married women and/or man had sex outside of marriage he/she is stoned to death. All these laws are indicators that Islam is in fact wicked and immoral.

Muslims also claim that the woman in Islam is well honored and respected.
This claim is false since the laws and rules of Islam show the opposite. A woman in Islam is not allowed to go outside her house without a male chaperon.
In Islam, a woman's testimony in the court of Islamic law worth half of that of a male.
A man is allowed in Islam to marry 4 women if he wanted where a woman only marries one man and she cannot even divorce him if he didn't agree, where a man can divorce a woman whenever he wanted.
The woman in Islam is considered a tool for childbearing and sexual pleasure. She was ordered to cover herself so she would not provoke men, so basically God telling women to cover themselves has nothing to do with them.

Now we all see that Islamic countries nowadays are all weak and underdeveloped but ask yourselves what would happen if Islam managed to become strong as it were 1400 years ago? we will see Jihadists entering Europe offering either Islam, money, or death.
Back in the Caliphates era, Muslim armies used to give three options to any country they invade; either they convert to Islam, pay for safety, or die.
Being an ex-Muslim for 20 years I can say that Muslims all around the world wish for that era to come back.

Pro's arguments are highly bigoted and wrong because he caricatures 1.4 billion Muslims for the actions of a few, or for the actions and conditions in third-world countries. Islam is not inhumane; if it were ipso facto inhumane, there would be no good Muslims, yet there are plenty. Most of them are good, peaceful people who happen to believe in Islam. It's highly ignorant and bigoted to rip people for believing differently than you, especially with no evidence to use such a broad brush.

As morality doesn't exist, these types of debates are pointless. So it's 'inhumane', whatever that means, so what? It is merely your preference to live by and have everyone else live by a 'humane' philosophy, same as your preference to eat a hamburger rather than a fish burger, nothing more, nothing less.

How exactly does Pro have a warped and bigoted view?
I suppose his closing sentence in Round 1 could be seen as overstepping (when he writes, "Muslims all around the world wish for that era to come back").

But the majority of his opening argument is simply laying out things that are claimed within Islam, not by individual Muslims. Assuming his claims about Islam are factually accurate, since when is taking a religion at it's word regarding its own tenants warped or bigoted?

Agreed, Con makes no argument, but it is true that Pro has a warped and bigoted view...

I find this hilarious. Con is just saying "THE PRO IS A BIGOT!!1!" as his argument. Pro-1 Con-0

Pro is winning this debate by a huge margin. Con did not make any arguments. Furthermore, he consults Muslims, not the religion of Islam. Maybe Muslims are nice, but Islam is horrible. (Don't actually mean such)

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's arguments were entirely unfounded, citing to ayahs or extracts from any Islamic book. Con argued this, in his very last sentence, saying that there was no evidence presented. Resolution negated. Conduct to Con for Pro's forfeits.

Reasons for voting decision: Islam is not very different from Christianity or Judaism. In fact, all three are basically heresies of the same religion. Your issue is not with the religion itself, but with it'a interpretation and the behavior it's adherents. Once again, this claim is unfounded as it is a prime example of confirmation bias. Your people did something bad? Ignore it, it was their individual problem. A handful of muslims did bad things? It's Islam's fault! Pro forfeit means full victory to con.
