Inequality in Religions

            Many people claim that all religions are equally good – or equally bad – according to their beliefs. They are mistaken in their beliefs. This writer believes that all religions have some good in them, but that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth. There is no religion that is equal to the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

            A famous atheist and evolutionary biologist named Richard Dawkins dislikes all religions but find Islam to be especially bad. "It’s tempting to say all religions are bad, and I do say all religions are bad, but it’s a worse temptation to say all religions are equally bad, because they’re not."

            Dawkins was promoting a new book while speaking at the Cheltenham Science Festival. He is an advocate for religious education because religion – particularly Christianity – is an “important part” of European culture. He believes that religion should be taught in order for children to learn about different religions rather than just the one in which they are reared. He claims that Islam is the worst.

[Islam is the] most evil religion in the world [because] if you look at the actual impact that different religions have on the world, it’s quite apparent that, at present, the most evil religion in the world has to be Islam.

[Muslims suffer from the effects of Islam more than anyone else.] They suffer from the homophobia, the misogyny, the joylessness, which is preached by extreme Islam, ISIS and the Iranian regime. So it is a major evil in the world. We do have to combat it.

            Even though liberal Dawkins does not like the way President Donald Trump is addressing the issue of Islam, he also does not approve of the way liberals protect Muslims. "There’s this notion Islam and Muslims are this protected species…. That if we talk about them at all, or criticize at all, it’s somehow hurting or humiliating Muslims. It’s a ridiculous idea." Dawkins believes that unjust treatment should be “called out” “regardless of faith, culture, or creed.” Evil should not be condoned simply because it’s “their culture.”

            This author agrees with Dawkins in the belief that Islam is evil and should not be protected. Anyone who kills, rapes, terrorizes, or hurts other people – whether in the name of religion or not – is evil and should be called out. Nevertheless, all people who truly love God will also love and care for His children.
