THE QURAN IS NOT AS INCLUSIVE AS YOU MAY THINK

----------------------------------------------

"The example of those who disbelieve is like that of one who shouts at what hears nothing but calls and cries [i.e., cattle or sheep] - deaf, dumb and blind, so they do not understand."

Degrading those who disagree with Islamic religious dogmas helps the cult to stay in ignorance of the valid arguments of the opposing factions and to have no pity if they're exterminated.

"Do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you."

It helps the believers ignore the points of view of the disbelieving faction so that the believers have fewer obstacles to lie to themselves about the divinity of their faith.

"The disbelievers would almost cut you down with their eyes when they hear ˹you recite˺ the Reminder, and say, 'He is certainly a madman.'"

The funny thing is that usually when people belonging to one religion hear the teachings of another religion, it sounds ridiculous to them and they wonder how others can believe it. But they don't notice that it works both ways. It happens because most religious views are usually ridiculous, just you get used to those you believe in and they don't look weird to you anymore.
