GUEST,Steamin' Willie The Black Cloud of Islam by Roy Harper (100* d) RE: The Black Cloud of Islam by Roy Harper 18 Feb 11

I've decided you are all wrong. Mr Harper included.

Cos you are all ignoring the one true religion, so are all heathens.

Sounds bad that, doesn't it? Except that is what I read into most debates around religion. Yes, Islam like all the Abrahamic faiths doesn't like the idea of people not following their flavour. Yes, it is easy to brainwash young fools (and stupid old men) into believing metaphysical answers to temporal problems, usually including destroying anybody who disagrees with you, and yes...

They are all wrong because there is no such thing as ruddy god.

But that doesn't mean people cannot get on with their lives in peace, following a tradition based on a moral code. Lyrics like that just don't help, they really don't. And coming from an otherwise respected songsmith, it's a pity he doesn't use his skill and knowledge to paint with a fine point sable brush instead of a yard brush.
