Memebuster – Sharia Law Is Identical To The Republican Platform

CRTZr9bWEAAiVaj[1]

I ‘ve decided to start a new segment at Logical Libertarian called Memebuster. I will attempt to debunk memes largely based on ideology, and rarely containing any factual information. Let’s start with this one from a friend on Twitter. I’ll answer them one at a time:

Government based on religion

While Republicans are definitely quite commonly supporting laws based on their own religious ideology, none have ever promoted the idea of abolishing the 1st amendment and legislating the Bible, or any other religion.

There’s a difference between promoting a law based on religious beliefs, and adopting a government based solely on religion.

Women have fewer rights than men

Under Sharia law, women can’t even show their face, can be murdered if they get raped—being deemed as adulterers, aren’t allowed to drive a car, etc.

No one in the GOP is promoting such a notion.

This is entirely about positions on abortion. We’re all against murder, but in the eyes of many on the right, abortion is seen as the murder of an innocent child. There is no scientific evidence that can deem them wrong.

While I’m personally pro-choice prior to fetal-viability, it’s merely my opinion, and positions on abortion always will be. But it is NEVER about taking away women’s rights for the GOP, they’re trying to protect the rights of the unborn as they see it.

Disagree if you must, as I do, but don’t lie by saying they’re against women’s rights.

Homosexuality is outlawed

No GOP legislator is promoting making homosexuality a crime. They are against it being called marriage, since many are religious and consider marriage a religious institution. But many GOPs support civil unions, and some have even evolved on gay marriage.

This is a wildly hyperbolic overstatement by this meme.

Rejecting Science In Favor of Religious Doctrine

Many lawmakers on the left and right are religious. Many are not scientists. When you don’t understand a particular field of science, you will largely default to your beliefs. This is not unique to Republicans.

Politicians on both sides promote religion and/or science when it serves their interests.

For instance, Democrats promote the idea of giving, often quoting the Bible, when they promote socialist policies that take from people with money, and give to people who don’t have money. Despite the science of economics that shows that socialism has never lifted an economy out of ruin.Alms for the poor box

Republicans are usually accused of being anti-science on global warming, but there isn’t a religious reason for doing that, they just believe that the predictive models aren’t settled science.

I cannot think of any issue where they ignore science because of religious dogma. Most accept that the Earth isn’t 6,000 years old, most call a doctor before a priest when they’re sick, and most consider scientific evidence when offered it, as related to proposed legislation.

The 1st Amendment
The 1st Amendment

No separation between church and state

Again, no Republican is promoting a repeal of the 1st amendment, or amending it.  I would also like to point out that “separation of church and state” is not even in the Constitution, which instead points out that no law should be passed prohibiting or mandating religion. That’s a pretty big distinction.

There are no proposed laws from Republicans trying to force someone to be religious, but instead to enforce they’re opinion of morality based on their religion.

In other words, no Republican is forcing you to be religious, but they don’t want you smoking marijuana, for instance, because they think it’s just wrong—largely based on their own religious conditioning.

Religion is taught in schools

This is half-true. Many Republicans want religion allowed to be taught in school, but none are promoting the idea that it must be taught in school under penalty of law, such as Sharia law would dictate.

Abortion is illegal

This is probably the only fair similarity in this meme. Many Republicans are anti-choice on the issue of abortion because again, they believe it’s murder.

You can disagree with them if you like, but their decision isn’t an oppressive one, it’s about saving what they believe to be a human life, a principle we all agree on in theory, we just disagree on when a life becomes a life.

  1. NOT TRUE Sharíah LAW will 1)SEIZE YOUR PROPERTY, 2)ENULL ALL NON-MUSLIM MARRIAGES, 3)Take OWNERSHIP Of YOUR FEMALES & ENSLAVE THEM, 4)Take Your SMALL CHILDREN & FORCE THEM TO CONVERT TO ISLAM Only to RETURN TO KILL ANY REMAINING FAMILY or be KILLED (Devsirme=Blood Tax), 5)BEHEAD YOU for being NON-MUSLIMS, 6)MARRY CHILDREN of ANY AGE, 7)THIGHING OF CHILDREN (Mufakhazat Alzigaar), 8)DESTROY Anything NOT ISLAMIC, 9)LIE & DECEIVE ALL NON-MUSLIMS (Taqiyyah-Tawriya-Muruna-Kitman-Darura-Muda’rat-Taysir), 10)EXECUTE DHUMMI’S as per Mohammad’s dying Wishes (Khaibar Jews legal Precedence), 11)EXECUTE All REMAINING NON-MUSLIMS 12)ENFORCE STRICT SHAR’IAH LAW Upon ALL CITIZENS to CREATE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE of TOTAL GLOBAL DOMINANCE Over the ENTIRE PLANET & only AFTER ALL NON-MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN EXECUTED CAN THERE BE ANY PEACE (Last time I checked thats Not PEACE but GENOCIDE), while I can continue last time I CHECKED NONE OF THESE ARE THE SAME AS THE REPUBLICANS POLICIES So I call BULLSHITE On Your LIES & DECEPTIONS just because you are IGNORANT or a DELIBERATE LIAR Doesn’t make Your LIES TRUE. The Biggest THREAT FROM ISLAM is NOT TERRORISM BUT DECEPTIONS & it allows ISLAM TO SPREAD & WEAKENS EVERYBODY. They will Never ASSIMILATE because they Aren’t in the WEST TO ASSIMILATE BUT TO CONQUER & KILL You All. They will NEVER OBEY THE LAW because the 2ND RULE OF JIHAD says So, but the 3RD & 4TH RULES OF JIHAD is to ALWAYS PLAY VICTIMS AFTER ATTACKING INNOCENTS BY TWISTING THE TRUTH WITH LIES. Which is the same thing you are DOING RIGHT NOW WITH THIS BULLSHITE so Take your LYING ARSE STRAIGHT TO HELL & SHUT THE FCUK UP
