“Moderate” Muslims support the punishments advocated by their religion

At a Muslim “Peace” conference in Norway in March of this year, the attendees clearly demonstrated their support for the punishments advocated by their religion for certain behaviours e.g stoning for adultery.

It is difficult to see any difference between so-called “moderate” Muslims and “extremist” or “radicalised” ones, because at this conference, the line of demarcation (if such exists) is so blurred as to be invisible.

  1. Not much difference between christianity and Islam then…..

    Leviticus 20:10
    King James Version (KJV)
    10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

    • The penalty for adultery was death in the time of Moses in the Old Testament theocracy. However when the Lord Jesus Christ dealt with the woman taken in adultery, He did not command that she be stoned to death, although He had the authority, as the Giver of the law, to order her stoning. Instead, He told her to go and sin no more.
      So today, the death penalty for adultery is no longer in force in Biblical Christianity, however, repentance and forsaking the sin is absolutely essential, as there is no hope of forgiveness if these are lacking.

  2. Right so you use the Old Testament when it suits you. Your old mate Leviticus wrote about men not lying with men, which you always drag up, and yet Jesus Christ never once condemned homosexuality in all his teachings, not once in the New Testament is homosexuality condemned. Your Old Testament theocracy with regards to homosexuality stands for what it is…unsubstantiated, outdated and bigoted nonsense. Jesus Christ was okay about homosexuals because His Father created them.
