A Resolution regarding Islam


WHEREAS Qur'an is considered by Muslims the perfect, immutable (by men), and eternal word of Allah,

WHEREAS Muhammad is declared by Allah (by way of himself) to be a "beautiful pattern of conduct" for those who want to please it and therefore considered by Muslims to be the "Ideal Man," and so his words and deeds as recorded in Hadith (sayings) collections and Sira (biographies) are considered prescriptive for Islamic life and doctrine,

WHEREAS Muhammad -- according to those texts -- preached and practiced genocide, pedophilia, rape, slavery, torture, mutilation, theft, extortion, polygyny, wife-beating, religious and gender apartheid, deceit, treason, and blasphemy on religious grounds against non-Muslims and Muslim apostates, women, and children,

WHEREAS no major schools of Islamic jurisprudence reject those words and deeds as inhumane or unlawful,

WHEREAS Muslims who reject Muhammad's words and deeds are considered apostates and therefore deserving of death,

WHEREAS shari'a, Islamic law, is derived from Qur'an, ahadith, and sira,
