Why Islam should not be classed as a religion.
Our greatest critics of Islam confine their attack to the non-religious aspects of Islam, either its political side or its judicial side. But when we discuss political Islam or Sharia law alone, we imply that there is a religious Islam that is perfectly fine, that we don’t have to worry about. And we leave the major problems of Islamization – Muslim immigration, mosque building, the proselytizing in our prisons and military and the infiltration of our governmental institutions completely untouched but indeed untouchable.
So I think we need to step back a second and examine Islam as a whole and to broadly define the outlines of Islam – what it is and what it isn’t.
One thing we can definitely say about Islam is that is it not confined to a belief system. If it is a religion it is not a religion only. Islam is a total way of life and contains within itself a certain social system, judicial system, and political system which includes geo-political aspirations - the conquest and administration of territory.
Sometimes I compare Islam to a duck-billed platypus which superficially resembles an otter. Upon Inspection, You will find this animal has a duck-like bill, That it lays eggs, and has many other features which are not otter-like. So it cannot remain in the Animal category containing otters. It is simply too different and must have its own category. I think the same thing is true of Islam. It is far too different from the other religions to remain in the same category, it should be classified in its own category.
Secondly, I think it is obvious to Christians that Islam is its polar opposite and I believe nihilism lies between Christianity and Islam and that the morality of Islam is inverted.
Let me explain: religion supplies our world-view concerning the nature of reality. If we were to plot belief systems on a graph – on one side are religions which view G-d as good and the universe as a benevolent place – in the middle we have the view that there is no G-d and the universe is a pitiless and indifferent place, the view of material determinism which is the direction toward which our society is tending. On the other side of the view of G-d as malevolent and the universe is a vicious and unpredictable place – that G-d enjoys our suffering. This is where Islam lies.
The reason we can assert that the morality of Islam is inverted is that Islam consistently elevates material over spiritual considerations. That is, it elevates the material obedience to the dictates of the Islamic doctrine above all consideration of Truth or Goodness. Morality, conformity and even legality are all one and the same in Islam. Let me give you an example: The following are the words of the father of a failed female suicide bomber:
“'If I had known what my daughter was planning I would have told the Jews. I would have stopped her.”
