We already have a name for what it is. It's a fucking roll.
Of course, whoosh. You example is stupid. How about we talk about something other than getting rid of growing a manly beard rule (Probably one of the better parts about Islam, I would guess. Not sure why you'd want to get rid of that...)? Like their irrational belief in some magic sky man and everything involving him. Get rid of that. That's not Islam by some other name. It's not Islam. It's just a story about some asshole going around and raping his nine year old wife. Just like a roll isn't a sandwich. Get what I'm saying? Rhetorical question, of course you don't. Go play with some lego or something more your speed, retard.

I fully understand what the "rose by any other name" saying means which is why I used it.. you call it toh- may-to I call it toh-mah-toe point is it's still a red fruit used in salads and BLT sandwiches. a Person can follow all the teachings of Christ and not identify or call themselves a christian.. but in the case there is an afterlife.. that person would end up in the same place regardless off what he calls himself.
Now taking the bullshit out of religion wouldn't make it less of a religion in fact it would make it pure
Oh and on Islam they don't believe in a sky man .. they believe in either a being without definition such as the case of Sunni Muslims and on the other end of the spectrum a Man of flesh and bone In the Nation of Islam.. something that is also shared by the christian sect of Mormonism.
Now are there bad people of Islamic and Christian faith.. sure.. but you can't paint all with such a broad brush.. that's like saying everyone on this forum is a Narutard just because one finds an example of a narutard on the forum and then assuming all on the forum are narutards!
Mibs if you don't see that I responded to everything you said then maybe you're not as smart as you think you are.. just saying something doesn't make it true.. you of all people should know this by now
