Islam

Islam is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion articulated by the Qur'an, a book considered by its adherents to be the verbatim word of God and by the teachings and normative example of Muhammad, considered by them to be the last prophet of God. An ... adherent of Islam is called a Muslim. The Quranists are Muslims who reject the Sunnah and the hadith.Muslims believe that God is one and incomparable and the purpose of existence is to worship God. Muslims also believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed before many times throughout the world, including notably through Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, whom they consider prophets. They maintain that the previous messages and revelations have been partially misinterpreted or altered over time, but consider the Arabic Qur'an to be both the unaltered and the final revelation of God   more

Taoism

Taoism is a philosophical, ethical, and religious tradition of Chinese origin that emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao. The term Tao means "way", "path" or "principle", and can also be found in Chinese philosophies and religions other than Tao... ism. In Taoism, however, Tao denotes something that is both the source and the driving force behind everything that exists.While Taoism drew its cosmological notions from the tenets of the School of Yin Yang, the Tao Te Ching, a compact and ambiguous book containing teachings attributed to Laozi, is widely considered its keystone work. Together with the writings of Zhuangzi, these two texts build the philosophical foundation of Taoism deriving from the 8 Hexagrams of Fu Xi in the 2700s BCE in China.Taoist propriety and ethics may vary depending on the particular school, but in general tends to emphasize wu-wei, "naturalness", simplicity, spontaneity, and the Three Treasures: compassion, moderation, and humility   more

Judaism

Judaism is the religion, philosophy, and way of life of the Jewish people. Judaism is a monotheistic religion, with the Torah as its foundational text, and supplemental oral tradition represented by later texts such as the Midrash and the Talmud. Ju... daism is considered by religious Jews to be the expression of the covenantal relationship that God established with the Children of Israel.Judaism includes a wide corpus of texts, practices, theological positions, and forms of organization. Within Judaism there are a variety of movements, most of which emerged from Rabbinic Judaism, which holds that God revealed his laws and commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of both the Written and Oral Torah. Historically, this assertion was challenged by various groups such as the Sadducees and Hellenistic Judaism during the Second Temple period; the Karaites and Sabbateans during the early and later medieval period; and among segments of the modern reform movements. Liberal movements in modern times such as Humanistic Judaism may be nontheistic. Today, the largest Jewish religious movements are Orthodox Judaism, Conservative Judaism and Reform Judaism   more

I'm sorry, but Islam. Other religions have plenty of radicals, but Muslims take the cake

None. Everyone has a right to their beliefs (or disbelief), no matter how farfetched or removed from reality that belief may be.

Freedom of religion trumps any law. While I would fight tooth and nail for a Muslim's right to practice their religion, I personally would remove that specific religion magically.

The idea that people have the right to believe Lies, base their actions on Lies, Lie their heads off, etc. , doesn't make sense. Islam, by definition, means submission to the will of God. There is no such religion as submission to the will of God. Since people have been Refusing to submit all along, Islam has to be False.
