• Too much hatred in its scriptures

    Islam's prophet's life reads more like that of a gang leader. He killed non - muslims because they were non - muslims. He bought and sold women and children of defeated people like herds of cattle. The scriptures - Koran and Hadis not only contain all this and more, but inspire their followers to continue doing the same to non - Muslims. History shows that most Muslims followed that inspiration.

    There can be no place for such an ideology in the modern era. Banning Islam will force Muslims also out of their mental prison and turn them into great people capable of adding to the progress of mankind.

  • If not banned, islam will destroy all religions

    See the 1400 year history. How many religions are wiped out and being wiped out. Pakistan had more than 40% other religions at independence - today less than 3%. Bangladesh had more than 40% other religions at independence - today less than 7%. If we don't ban them, they will destroy every other religion.

  • Time to move on

    We live in the 21st century, this is no place for such a medieval, out of touch insecure religion. Killing people for being gay or leaving Islam is completely morally wrong. Even though they say it's only the radicals who carry out these atrocities the rest still believe in the ideology as they are all singing off the same hymn sheet (literally). Time to massively reform Islam and bring it into the modern age instead of 1492 or get rid of it all together.

  • Outdated, violent, dangerous.

    In my opinion all religion is nonsense, how anyone can believe that a man created the universe is beyond me, especially with modern science where almost everything can be proved scientifically. As said in the comments, Islam is dangerous, violent, intolerant and divided people, Islam does not fit into western society.

  • Islam should not be allowed in the United States.

    Even though there are in fact peaceful and kindhearted muslims in the world, the threat of Extremism is too great of risk to keep the human race functioning. While there will never be peace on Earth, the Islamic faith is destroying order and peace by killing 'infidels'. Islam needs to be banned before they destroy the human race.

  • All religions are based on delusion Islam is a dangerous delusion

    Becoming radicalised isn't some form of overnight reaction it takes on a number of steps. The same applies to people who become Jehovah s Witness; Scientology; Moonies, etc and most Importantly Islam. The steps of becoming radicalised need a fundamental state of mind and that is one of potentially delusional; Anyone who believes in any religion is delusional; (see 'delusion' ; "an idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder". Most people who are fervently religious is suffering from delusion as there is rational basis for their beliefs.
    Secondly, Unlike most religions the emphasis that this life is not the real one but is a test for acceptance in your real life in paradise; it is a death cult.
    Thirdly, social separation; Religions create social separation between each other and this particularly part of Islam with the physical separation of dress code and the belief in Sharia as separate from the law of their country of residence. The other and most relevant part of separation is the identification of 'who you are' is defined in Islam as a Muslims are Brothers and Sisters and their is no sense of national identity.
    Fourthly; It is evangelical, to spread the word and for Islam to become world dominant because it is the truth and everything else is no consequence.
    Fifthly, and most importantly; The acceptance and expectation that killing certain people is acceptable and in some cases expected mainly Apostates; people who reject Islam, This can be and is taken by extremists as the excuse to kill anyone who does not 100% accept Islamic doctrine
    This is the main difference between Islam and other less dangerous religions is that the evangelical pursuits of the likes of the Jehovah s Witness is to slightly irritate you by knocking on your door on a Sunday morning rather than flying a aircraft into a building! For this Islam should be seen as a dangerous cult and should be publicly banned and Mosques closed.

  • Ban Islam now.

    Islam is nothing more than a political stone age death cult. It is no different than the KKK, Nazi's or any other hate cult as as such needs to be outlawed. It is incompatible with the west and our democracy and freedom. The two can't coexist. Besides Allah doesn't exist. It's just one giant fairy tale. How people believe this nonsense is beyond me.

  • It's satan's cult.

    Allah calls himself a terrorist, calls himself the lord of demons, and swears by demons as his witnesses. The commandments of the quran are evil, the writings of the hadiths are deplorable and evil. Anyone who has actually read them can not argue with this. Muhammad was the worst, most evil vial criminal that has ever walked the earth, and his religion condones it all.

  • Islam should be banned.

    Because with so many muslims in the world it is totally unnacceptable for all islamic counteies to discriminate against the rest of the world and deny them rights yet at the same time wanting to be a part of the rest of the world as long as it changes to accept it. It is islam that should be banned or changed until it is them who accept us. People need to stand up to all the grand muftis and religious bigots.

  • We can Constitutionally ban it

    If we designate all of islam as a "foreign terrorist organization" and not as a bonafide religion, we can ban it without violating our Constitutional right for the freedom of religion.
    Islam is more like a deadly hate group than a real religion. After all, their leader is a deluded pedophile and not a real holy man... And its followers and doctrines are all about murder and not about spiritual things

  • There are reasons why people think this and its stupid

    It's a religion and that would mean that if you banned one religion you would have to ban them all because otherwise it's not fair. Also on the news they only point out what they want you to think. You never here on the news that a Christian has been accused of rape, have you? You only here that sort of thing when a Muslim has done that. It's called media promotion, they can put what ever they want on the TV and most people will believe it. The main reason people think that Islam should be banned is because of 9/11 and 7/7 but they were extremists.

    Nobody should think that a calm religion should be banned because of extremists.

  • What a silly notion.

    Firstly: I would like to see you try.

    Secondly: There is about as much "hatred" in the Qur'an as there is in the Bible. In fact, even on these forums, it has been successfully argued on several occasions, that Islam is in fact a religion that advocates peace over war.

  • Thats so hypocritical

    You say Islam is trying to turn people against their own religion, isn't that what you're doing now. No Muslim ever tried to change me it's only people who have Islam phobia who try to deny people of their ow freedom and way of life. You are the hypocritical ones in society

  • What about religious tolerance ?

    Islam is a religion, and prohibiting Muslim people to practice their faith would be impeding their own human rights.

    People should stop believing on what the media says about Islam, and try to seek the truth with Muslim people, and realize that Islam is complete different of the image society has created due of the past wars.
    Yes there are Muslim extremists just like Christians extremists as well. And most of religions' history contain times of peace, but also war

  • No, Islam Should Not Be Banned

    Islam should not be banned, at least not in America. Here in America, we have the First Amendment, which grants freedom to practice whatever religion you choose. While it is true that many terrorists are Islamic, there are many Muslims who are very peaceful and probably very disgusted that people would commit acts of terrorism. Banning Islam, or any religion for that matter, in America is unconstitutional and cannot happen.

  • There is only one truth. Let it flow....

    Why do you fear Islam so much ???
    What is it that you fear the most about Islam ???
    There is ONLY ONE TRUTH. Whether any being likes it or not.
    If you truthful, you should be able to contradict what Islam says and work opposite to the challenges of ISLAM.

    Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will remain forever” [al-Rahmaan 55:26-27]

    “Every soul shall taste death in the end; to Us shall you be brought back.” (Surat al-‘Ankabut: 57)

    All your rudeness, your money, your armies, your machine guns couldn't till this century eradicate Islam. WHY ?

    This is the promise of the Creator.
    Nothing lasts forever. Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will remain forever” [al-Rahmaan 55:26-27]

    "Running away will not profit you if you are running away from death or slaughter; and even if (you do escape), no more than a brief (respite) will you be allowed to enjoy!”(Surat al-Ahzab: 16)

    This is the Creator, He does what he wants with his creatures. We are creatures ,, you like it or not... You have seven layers of skin ,, made of dust ,,, this is what the Quran says and check it scientifically ....

    Do you fear the clear truth rather???

  • The First Amendment Exists.

    The First Amendment exists. It's as simple as that. You can't actually take away the freedom of religion from anybody. It's part of our fundamental principles. You don't have to like Islam or agree with it; I certainly don't. But it's still the most basic right of every US citizen to practice it if they choose, just like any religion, as long as they don't infringe on other people's rights in the process. To reject that concept is to reject the concept of freedom and liberty existing in our country.

  • Why the fuck are you even considering this

    What the fuck is wrong with you people? Don't you read the constitution? All religions are welcome in America. Not just you're shitty idea of Christianity. Man fuck you guys. It sickens me to see that 88% of you say that Muslims should be banned in america. You are all acting like children.

  • Nope - See Mormons & Christanity

    Freedom of Religion And Separation of State.
    Remember and maybe still the Religion of Mormons (Later day Saints)
    Was totally against all people born black.. IT wasn't outlawed..
    And they opening slaughter Indians and blacks in the name of there religion ..

    And Sure Christianity keeps blacks enslaved for 400 years ..
    So Under precedent probably most all religion would have to be banned

  • What a silly notion.

    Firstly: I'd like to see you try and ban it.

    Secondly: There is about as much "hatred" in the Qur'an and Hadiths as there are in the Bible. In fact, there is significantly less, if you've actually read either of these series. Several debates on these very forums prove that Islam is a religion that advocates peace over war most of the time.

Banning Islam would be kind of extreme.
