Islam is not a horrific religion

Round 1
Pro
#1
Welcome to another debate with me and my good friend Best.Korea. This debate I will try to be as nice as possible, not insulting my opponent and essentially being a bigger man. Even though he will try to get a reaction out of me, very well renowned to be an Islamophobe, a bigot and a hater, I will still try to keep my calm with the hope of him getting agitated. He will try and insult my religion, Islam. Be wary of this. Lets begin.

Definition of horrific

Lets get the definitions sorted. The definition of horrific from  dictionary.cambridge.org is 'very bad and shocking'. So ultimately, the opposition would say it  is an extreme religion that is portrayed as a terrible and horrible faith which oppresses every individual and brings no peace nor mercy. I will refute this. 
 
Islam

Islam is the religion of peace. In no circumstances can Muslims oppress individuals who are innocent nor kill innocents. Nor even raping innocents. Now the problem is, why do many people think that Islam promotes these things? Yes there are quotes that refer to violence and warfare however I am not here to promote a pacifist religion, as it is not. Islam allows military action under certain contexts such as self defence. However many smaller groups such as ISIS take it out of that context. Islam teaches for Muslims not to go to war unless they have been attacked first. And even when the Muslim army retaliates, no innocent lives must be killed and the environment cannot be harmed. This is not horrific. 

I do not think I have much more to say. Yes the burden of proof relies on me however I would like to hear the arguments of Con as well as expand on Islam a bit more. Currently writing this at 2.40am so you can't blame me. 

Con thinks that Islam is a horrific religion when it clearly is the opposite. Islam teaches to be peaceful until the last resort which is when violence can come to play. Con thinks that all Muslims are terrorists. He thinks that me, sitting behind my keyboard promoting peace, as well as the other 1.8 billion Muslims of his fellow humanity are promoting a war like terrorist religion. Con has actually got one thing in common with terror groups such as ISIS etc. They both think Islam is a war like religion. However the rest of us do not. 

Con will write some racist things here, so if you are sensitive to these things then please brush over them. I do not care, I am sure you voters do not care and I am really sure that Con does care. So instead of reaction, we want to do the opposite. We want to fight against racism of any sort and we can do this peacefully. 

I appreciate your time to read my first argument, very short however just an introduction. The real points I want to make will be in round 2 and 3. 

Thanks and over to you Con

The dirty way of life which you live is not the truth as it is utterly harmful thing just as you are an utterly horrible human being that deserves no mercy.

BoP

I have the full burden of proof. Con's first argument does not include any rebuttle nor any rebukes so I think it is safe to say I have the advantage for now. 

Here are some more reasons to why Islam is not a horrific religion

Women

In Islam, women are entitled to many rights which are listed below

-Women have the right to work
-Women have the right to vote
-Women have the right to refuse marriage proposals
-Women have the right to own property
-Women have the right to divorce 
-Women have inheritance rights
-Women have the right to be exempt of all financial liabilities
-Women have the right to ask for a dowry before official marriage
-Women have the right to be protected 
-Women have the right to education

There are many more rights which women have, these are only some. Over  100 years ago, in the UK, women such as the suffragettes were fighting for these rights, however Islam gave them many a moon ago. 

I don't know about you voters, but I think this is pretty fair and is not 'horrific' in any way. 


There is again not much for me to say as Con has not given much indication on any rebuttle and has just insulted my religion. I would have to cut it short again as I have nothing to respond to. I accept I do have the full burden of proof, however I have given the piece about women and the wars and no rebuttle has come my way. 

I look forward to hearing Con's second argument

This is the great defender of islam? Assuming you are actually a muslim and not some 60 year old gay pretending to be underage muslim boy without any regard to human deceny. Saving yourself from me is not the option. Destroying you here is the consequence of opposition to the slave life of islam where taking pathetic pride in being slaves attacking those who oppose you every time you get some form of power in society becomes fully viable for you is noted, proving this historically. Naturally, you will want to defend yourself from my verbal attacks. Being inexperienced little boy is not good, but even if you had 1000 of years of experience falling low before me is inevitable for you just as falling for that ugly pig mohammad is inevitable for your stupid people in general due to being a weak little community of human worms.

Con has described me a great defender of Islam. Appreciate it very much however I would not describe myself as great. 

Con has described me as a 60 year old gay pretending to be underage. I am flattered for Con for making me a more mature and wise person however being gay is actually against my religion, the acting upon being gay that is. Be gay if you want but cannot act upon it. Same with be an alcoholic if you want however do not drink alcohol. It is part of the struggle in life. This life is temporary. The afterlife is eternal. 

Con has described me as a slave life of Islam, I am a slave to Allah whereas he is a slave to the people, to society. 

Con has described me as taking pride to taking slaves however pride is haram. And slavery is also haram, to innocents. 

Con has described me as inexperienced, may be true however in this debate, it looks like I have got the most experience.

I do not think Con realises what this is ladies and gentlemen. I think Con thinks this is a playground of insults. This is a debate, Con. Go watch some on YouTube and come back and actually challenge me.  No rebuttals have been made, no rebukes, only insults

I think I have fulfilled my BoP and I do not think Con has fulfilled his rebuttals. 


Islam is a beautiful religion, not a horrific one. I gave examples to war and examples to women about why Islam is not a horrible religion. I really wanted to counter argue Cons points however as he never made any, I could not. 

I really hope voters take this into consideration and Con, have a great day!

Thanks,
Rayhan

I told you I would crush you as my uncorrupted heart cannot fall victim to your ideas in which you promote universal misery that leads to collective demise.

Having shown great stupidity of islam in your writing to a level where I am starting to think you are nothing but pathetic slave to the disgusting way of life that you so desperately  promote.

When opposing to you I am saving all those that would greatly suffer if you were left to yourself unchallenged.

Having thought that you could force us into submission to islam is the failure of your disgusting lying twisted logic that has no place in the minds of the people who live the pure way of life undefeated by your eagerness to spread the diseases which you brought from your sick twisted world.

Not knowing how to deal with me makes you excited as I have the answer for every pathetic little argument you make.

Being made clear that you are a corrupt deluded person it is obvious you dont know how you will suffer greatly once society decides that something should happen to you.

Being still naive so you dont know that people can crush you anytime like the insignificant little worm you are.

Having piled up so many repulsive things against yourself I am starting to think someone could solve you.
