Extreme religious fundamentalism of any stripe tends to be a destructive belief, like any extreme ideology. Wahhabism is just another strain of it.

A despicable ideology on par with the worst that fascism's had to offer. The sooner is goes away and it's revenue dries up the better.

Good point. We don't know why the throne is shaking, after all... :p
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

It should be noted that Wahhab's own father and brother opposed his ideology.

What is your opinion on it?
I think it is bad, since it is promotes terrible things, like homophobia, and is used in terroism and jihad. It’s overall all from the Quran, which doens’t allow certain freedoms.

(I’m not an islamophobe, and I didn’t research a lot on this, don’t kill me plz)
