Re: biased toward Muslims

I am not biased in any direction except toward true information rather than biased misinformation.

Re: Kabu's comment

No I won't delete you.  True discourse consists of allowing all sides to contribute -- then use the "scientific method" to determine what is best -- the Apostle Paul said, "Prove all things -- hold fast that which is true."  We cannot accept anything on face value -- we must determine its validity -- there is no absolute truth or validity -- there is just some things being more valid than others.

I agree with you on how the Moslem World treats women.  I feel that they are behind the Western World in their thinking -- remember that this Christian nation of the U.S.A. held similar views toward women until about 50 years ago -- it took a lot of struggle for the American Woman to gain the status she has today.  The change will have to come from within -- there is that Afghan girl who is targeted by the Taliban for her speaking out -- and the support for her -- it will still take a while and some education, which I am sure is being received now -- it is hard to change religious beliefs -- look at certain Christian denominations today -- a lot of harmful beliefs there -- but still held firmly.

I believe all you're really saying is basically "don't judge a whole group by the actions of a few." And when it comes to religious tolerance, there is no religion that is exempt from this. There is good and bad everywhere. But much of this falls back on an argument I have been spouting for years, and that is, the constant splintering of our societies into groups based on religion, or sexual orientation, or political affiliations, or wealth, or education, or race, or age, etc., etc., etc. How about we all try simply being human beings for a change, and see how that works out . . .

I have been reading back over your posts....really interesting. Are you biased towards the Muslim people or just wanting to give a different view?

I can't disagree with you, re what atrocities have been done in the name of Christianity throughout the centuries and even until today. Actually like the radical Muslim sects, it had nothing to do with a man named Jesus who spoke only of peace and Love and tolerance to all people and to the State. It was all to do with my way is the only way...and an excuse to grab land and treasure. It's all there in the history books.

Nautikos and Justi are special friends of mine so I won't discuss their views ....in a democracy they are as entitled to write their posts as what you or I are. You would find my Posts frivolous nonsense. I accept your right to disagree with their views on your site.

My last thought is that I cannot accept a society that accepts and promotes such cruelty to their women. That will mutilate women with female circumcision...mutilation with acid throwing, burning them, torturing them, family honour killings, and perhaps the worst, keeping them from becoming educated so that they cannot know how to stand up for themselves, how life could be for them, how it has always been for me. I need not say more...that, along with the increasing numbers of radicals turns me from this type of society. I do not want to see my Granddaughters living with Sharia Law in their midst.

Sorry, I got carried away here...delete me if you want to.
