Using logical thought

One thing I see the most from people criticizing Islam is how so much of the Quran supports violence. Then when the common violent themes portrayed in both the Quran and the Bible are brought up, the next thing they say is "Christianity had it's enlightenment". But that is simply where the conversation ends because most have already made up their minds. So, here are all violent passages in Old Testament: skepticsannotatedbible.com/cruelty/ot_li.. Here is Jesus' acknowledgement of the Old Testament and SUPPORT of it: bethinking.org/bible/q-how-did-jesus-vie.. As for The Enlightenment, it was a period brought about by remnants of the Protestant Reformation. The Tudors and Henry VIII is a subject that 2 years of History is devoted to in the British school system. Henry VIII's decision to remove the Catholic Church from the Crown played an integral role in the societal shift, ushering in a wave of free thought. So I pose 2 questions. 1. What do you think Western civilization would look like today without that change taking place? 2. Why focus on the text of the Quran, rather than the authoritarian application of said text as a nations laws?

Tl:dr Using religious law as a nations laws is the issue, not the religion itself.

not going to read religion is terrible

bible. read it interpret it, take what wisdom you want with you. quran, cant read it, only scholars. cannot interpret it only scholars. so there is diferences.

and yes totally agree with you islam is not a problem, put sharia as a country LAW is. plus it takes a path where change or evolution is forbidden. re interpretation is hard. and old customs become rule.
