Quote Of The Day #10 Update #2

Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Assim al-Hakeem


Some readers may recall a debate I had with a lady back in June 2017. She disliked my description of a quote from Islamic cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi. The original quote I shared was…

“If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment Islam wouldn’t exist today.”

We had a (mostly) civilised debate about what I had written about al-Qaradawi’s quote and the apostasy law. The best comment actually came from my fellow WordPress blogger Dioclese who commented that I “won’t win this argument” as some religious folks have a tendency to “go on and on and on and on.”

Quote of the Day #10 Update

Yusuf al-Qaradawi

This post is for the lady who wrote a massive comment on my previous quote from Islamic “scholar” Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Firstly, I have had a troll from another blog I contribute to visit this site so all comments are now held for moderation; I am not censoring you. Secondly, the site you used to post your (endless) series of quotes from the Koran contained some kind of virus that caused the WordPress app to crash. Thirdly, I understood the quote from al-Qaradawi perfectly well; words mean what they mean, not what you say they mean. Feel free to come back for a debate, without quoting endlessly from a book of fairy stories that I promise I have read from cover to cover (and read Koran, Sura 66 if you want a good laugh).
