Islam is no more dangerous than any of the Abrahamic religions. Christianity has also killed more people than Islam.

The term for Islamic jurisprudence - the systems of laws and requirements that govern muslims in the world - is fiqh (فقه). Sharia is something else, but the term is misused frequently to mean fiqh - this irritates me.

There are four main fiqh systems within Sunni Islam - Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi3i, and Hanbali. They consist of various rulings (decades and centuries worth) which establish guidelines for Islamic life, and Muslims may follow any of the four. There is geographic preponderance for several of them, though, so you are statistically more likely to follow a given one based on your location.

There are other, more minor systems as well - and that's not getting into Shi3a Islam or any of the other smaller sects (Ismailis, Zaydis, Alawites, etc).

IT WAS LIKE MIDNIGHT WHEN I WROTE THAT

i was tired

How is that distinct from Christianity? I don't think I need to recite the history of gay rights in predominantly christian countries, but it's plain fact to say that it's still a struggle today. And it's not like non-Abrahamic-faith-countries are any gold standard here either... India, China, Russia - not A+ examples either.

So again, there's nothing about Abrahamic religions that makes them more dangerous or more subject to being used for awful purposes than any other belief system.

Hi. No, you're right, it's not any different from Christianity in essence, it was an example, both religions have fiercely homophobic roots. My concern about Abrahamic vs Non-Abrahamic religions, as I said, has to do with the amount of power they hold/have held. Christianity, Islam and Judaism are not just influential but the base of many modern countries and even existing theocracies! but yes, as I also said, most religions are old, and as such support old fashioned, dangerous ideas like misogyny or homophobia. Dangerous.

I'm sorry for stirring this debate, is just a pleasure for me to argue with smart people.

Also hello TNP!! hope you're having a good one!
