    The morality arguments made by Frank are among the absolute weakest arguments he engages in… and that’s saying a lot.

    Is slavery objectively immoral or just culturally?
    And if you don't submit to christianity, you are condemned to eternal torment. That makes even sharia law look good.

    The Holy Koran states quite explicitly that religion is not by force.

    Anyone that tries to convert by force is not a Muslim.

    “Africa in the jungle women don’t have clothes” 🙄 I came from Africa to America in 2009 and women in Africa were dressed and women in America were naked. Very uncivilized indeed your ancestors would be ashamed.

    "Muslims are pro life" Islam thinks that life starts at birth, so no, not in the same definition of pro life that Christians believe in.

    I really like this guy’s counter arguments against atheists, but he’s morbidly wrong on Islam and sharia laws!! Muslims ruled over India for 1000 years yet India is still a majority Hindu country, Jews have lived under Muslim rulers in Middle East they’ve had the most privilege and protection, Muslim ruled over Christians in Jerusalem they lived peacefully for decades unlike crusaders who massacred Muslims, Jews, and Arab Christians.

    It’s just an unfortunate Christians academic dishonesty when it comes islam and Muslims. Smh

    I do enjoy many of your talks and responses to atheist, but as a Muslim when I hear you talk about Islam it seems like you leanr about it from Wikipedia of foxnews/cnn, I really advise you to learn properly about Islam. May God guide us to the truth.

    The separation of church and state is Western, not Christian.

    Morality is social, not personal. There is no such thing as personal morality. Morality is always about how we treat others.

    I am sure Mr. Turek would take back those words he spoke when describing J.John Roberts who in 2021 is now seen as a appointment to us conservatives.

    I see this is a 2010 post, so it cannot reflect your current thinking on Justice Roberts when he failed to side with the other conservative justices on 2 different occasions. In one instance Brett Kavanaugh shocked everyone by going completely to the other side. Whether he did so by following the rule of law, or if there was pressure placed on him or his family has yet to be determined. Point being, even when one says they are conservative, doesn't always mean they are conservative, and we're back at we got out of education, liberal professors indoctrinated an entire generation, 9 of whom sit on the Suprem Court. Our fault.

    I like Frank he’s doing a great job. But his opinion – then – on Roberts I trust has now changed. It did for me as well. Thought he was the best SC pick. But that has changed. A far better, contemporaneous pick was Sam Alito.

    huh, i heard he said "political correct" and "chopping off the head" in the video, then i look at the year the video came out, 2010. Wow, these terms were already in use/relevant a decade ago!

    Its a shame Frank didn't stress 'radical' muslims, i.e. the 'corrupt minority of evil individuals' . By not doing so feeds the demonising rhetoric machine that incites division, hatred and condemnation of all muslims, including Mohammad Ali. Nice one doctor Turek. Your choice of words shows your prejudices and your intentions clearly.

    Frank turik is good logical debater but he is completely wrong about everything he said about islam, first when he compare modern chrianty with isis. Also we don't force non Muslim to convert to islam its stated in the quran literally and non Muslims lived in harmony for centuries and the history prove it.

    There is no such thing as extremists in Islam. Sharia law and all the evils done are fundamentals of Islam. The so called radicals are just doing the dirty work and then the others move in.

    And that bit about Christianity being the only Religion that is for separation of church and state, includes Atheism & Secularism in this case.

    Oh sure, they say that they're for separation, but they don't consider themselves in the same category as other Religions…
    Yet another reason to consider the claims of non Religious beliefs, to be bogus. After all, most state Religions say the same thing.

    moral relativism and the idea that there is no higher power than man is a satanic belief. literally. This is from the Church of Satan's website under their fundamental beliefs:
    -question: "Why do Satanists worship The Devil?
    -answer:We don’t. Satanists are atheists. We see the universe as being indifferent to us, and so all morals and values are subjective human constructions.
    Our position is to be self-centered, with ourselves being the most important person (the “God”) of our subjective universe, so we are sometimes said to worship ourselves. Our current High Priest Gilmore calls this the step moving from being an atheist to being an “I-Theist.”
    Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. We do not believe in Satan as a being or person."

    2 Samuel 12. Let me know what you think of God killing innocent babies or forcing women not all involved in the sin to be raped.

    Gotta love it when your god completely ignores his own commands and objective morality to punish the innocent and spare the sinner on a whim.

    John Roberts through a legal slight of hand upheld Obamacare and now after Kennedy’s retirement has moved left to become the swing vote. Anyone who thinks that George W. Bush is a conservative has been fooled by the establishment/globalist wing of the Republican Party.
