Banning all religions the only solution to combatting radical Islam?
Reacting to theÂ recent pollÂ which revealed some “disturbing” things about the UK’s Muslim youth, and instead of having the guts to simply lay the blame where it belongs, Ms. Marrin thinks the only remedy is to banÂ allÂ religous groups, including Christian schools. “To beat extremism we must dissolve religious groups,” by Minette Marrin forÂ Times Online, July 27:
First, I think, we should abandon all discussions of what Islam truly is. No one will ever agree how many infidels can dance on a pin’s head; questions of true doctrine are insoluble, as Anglicans are proving all too comically at this very moment. For example, one in six of the nonSunni Muslim students polled thinks Sunnis are not true believers in Islam, while three in 10 non-Shi’ite respondents think the same about Shi’ites.Â
What follows inescapably from this is that religious people and their views should not be officially recognised in groups. Religion should not be allowed a public space or public representation.Â
There must be no more religious schoolsÂ â€“ personally I would leave those that exist alone. There must be no public recognition of religious associations as representatives of anything or anybody: not on campuses, not in student unions, not in government consultations or in parliament.

Most crime is committed by a few hardened criminals. But of course we must not incarcerate criminals, as that would be profiling. So let us lock up everybody.
Islam is violent at the core, but we cannot say so, so let us ban all religions, including the two responsible for Western civilisation.
Why do we have to destroy our civilisation just to appease a violent bunch of immigrants, who should not have been allowed into the West in the first place.

Its the price we pay for having university professors stuff toxic and suicidal ideologies like post-modernism and existentialism and its mutant offspring down the throats of college students for the last 40 years.
As a result we have so-called educated people who don’t even know right from wrong and good from evil. And who’ve also drank the heady of mead of multiculturalism, which itself is a product of post-modernism and now can’t tell the difference between a murderous, power hungry cult and religions that don’t believe in violence.
Its produced many so called intellectuals who can longer tell the difference between a college prank and the truth(go google Alan Sokal and his pranks on the elite of the post-modern movement).
IMO if we want to fix things, shutting down the philosophy and social studies departments might be a good start, since thats where the poison originates.
