we should respect islam
Debate Rounds (4)
islam= the religion of the Muslims, a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the Prophet of Allah.
respect=have due regard for "I respected his views"
we= the general population
Ill start by stating no religion deserves respect this view is held not just to Islam. There is a common idea in society in this day and age that all religious belief is due respect because it is a belive often times people hold them dear. It should be noted that respecting someone's views is quite different from accepting and/or disrespecting, and we are talking about respecting.
Religion is the only idea on this Earth that asks for respect on issues they may very well not be true and I cannot see why this is the case. Do we respect views on mathematics, medicine, astronomy e.t.c.? No, we respect the provable facts. Islam makes claims about the universe and humanity that are just completely and scientifically proven to be untrue (like most religions), however the Islamic community demands more respect than any other religious communities and that has been proven time and time again; and this demand to respect a belief just because it's a belief is ludicrous.
I accept that you believe dreamcatchers work but I certainly do not respect that view, and to tell me that I or anyone should respect that idea to tell me how to think; this is totalitarian and its somthing I or anyone else should not have to put up with and it is a disgusting and immoral idea.
Now I shall talk about the level of respect Islam demands of us, remember the 2006 denmark cartoon riots that lead to over 300 deaths worldwide, and the recent charlie hebdo massacre, this is islamic blasphemy law been forced on society and we are been told to respect these views and infact respect them over our own civil liberties, this is a direct encroachment of theocratic dictatorship that must not be 'respected'.
I really wish someone else would have agreed to this debate so as I could have had my ideas challenged; thought provoking and an intelligent debate. literally the only argument you presented was and I quote "Don't be a hater" when I never mentioned or implied we should 'hate' the religion I said we should not have to respect it and I made that distinction clear in my opening paragraph.
I dont mean to be rude but I'm rather disappointed.

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with Con's arguments that religion shouldn't be given respect by default. Respect is something that is earned, not demand. Pro states we should respect Islam, but never makes an argument to why this is the case. Pro simply states we should respect it. Therefore, I must give the argument advantage to Con. Pro really never makes any arguments to support the Pro position.
