“Interesting. Insofar as religion goes, nothing could be more different than the Progressive political ideal and the Islamic faith.”
That is where most people go wrong. The progressive political ideal is exactly islam in a nutshell. The only difference is what I stated. The progressives are trying to rid the world of G-d. islam already has. It is the antithesis of faith as we know it.
For instance, there is no word in islam for homosexual because homosexuality is practiced freely and openly. It is only when “modern” act-up types flaunt it that it becomes a crime. NOT because it is wrong, but because the exhibition of it “humiliates” islam in the eyes of the world.
Same with pedophilia and bestiality. Same with rape of girls OR boys. It is all condoned in islam.

I think, by evidence of this statement, that you misunderstood my post, or at least my meaning.
Islam does fervently believe in a “god,” whom they call “Allah.” Of course, “Allah” is no god at all, because this god does not fit the description of the God of the Bible — and in fact contradicts it in many if not most ways. Furthermore, the god that they believe in, “Allah,” is merely and ancient Arabic tribal idol. Muhammad’s tribe from Mecca had a god by that name long before his time — this “Allah” just became the “only” god after Muhammad...
So, to call Islam “godless” on the SURFACE is incorrect. HOWEVER, to call it IMMORAL, as you RIGHTLY point out, is wholly accurate. the Biblical God makes it clear that there are absolute moral truths — right and wrong. Islam, on the other hand, while making that CLAIM, in the practical reality, is far more concerned with appearance than behavior, with shame than with sin, with humiliation of the man than with offenses to “Allah.” This is the sign of a FALSE religion once you go beneath the surface...
THAT was my point. Beneath the exterior appearances, liberalism and Islam quickly head in the same direction, and shoot for the same goal.
