Declaration of Peaceful Intent

How to get proof of peaceful intent?
Here: Declarations of Peaceful Intent.

How do we identify who actually has peaceful intent? How do we identify who renounces any calls to violence found in their religious texts? Three friends got together and are sure they've figured out how we can do it.

Most non-Muslims claim that only a tiny minority of Muslims have any non-peaceful intent. A vital question: how to establish what percentage of Muslims have a peaceful intent. Assuming it is a high or low percentage is not useful. Proof is important.

The impetus:
- the extremely troubling passages in the Quran, calling for violence to non-Muslims;
- the many instances of violence by Muslims against non-Muslims done in the name of Islam;
- the extremely numerous assertions that none of the violence is related to Islam;
- and the assertion that there are at least as many passages in the Old Testament calling for violence, as in the Quran.

How to figure things out?

How to get proof - instead of people saying what they believe about Muslims and Christians?

Three friends - Harry Richardson, Keith Piper and a third person who prefers to stay unnamed - came up with what they are sure is a brilliant solution: the Declaration of Peaceful Intent, one for Muslims, and one for Christians and Jews. (You can download, and also read without downloading. Also, there are 3 videos.)

How do we know which Muslims, and what percentage of Muslims, will declare that they consider passages in the Quran calling for violence to non-Muslims to be no longer relevant? One gives them the Declaration and they can choose to sign or not.

Likewise, how do we know which Christians and Jews, and what percentage of Christians and Jews, will declare that they consider passages in the the Old Testament calling for violence to non-Israelites to be no longer relevant? One gives them the Declaration and they can choose to sign or not.

(At present, a Declaration has only been created for Muslims, and another for Christians and Jews. People from other faith traditions and non-faith people are invited to amend the text for their group. Then these Declarations will also be posted.)


The initial result is in. You can see:
- the video of the first Muslim faced with the Declaration;
- the video of the first Christian faced with the Declaration.

Plus, there's an interview with Harry Richardson, one of the Declaration's creators.

The Muslim and Christian were not random choices. The Muslim is a self-defined moderate, very active in interfaith groups. In other words, he is the kind of Muslim who might be expected to sign a declaration of peaceful intent.

The Christian is a long-time minister - in other words someone very familiar with the Bible, including violent passages. Despite these, would he sign the Declaration? And if so, how would he justify doing this?
