When a Muslim fraternity from the University of Texas at Dallas took to the streets to protest against domestic violence, these striking pictures made waves around the world. Muslim America rocks — we just don’t hear about it often.

fraulei-n grimmnir

knowing your two points of views might I be able to get your opinions on this?

Quran 4:34

Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard. As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), refuse to share their beds (second), (lastly) beat them; but if they return to obedience, seek not against them. Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.

The way I see it while that is true (that section in that it was written not in that it itself is truth), there’s a case to be made of how strictly these people follow their religion. Do you see Christians hurling stones or burning people on a regular basis? Not really no. There’s similar things in all three Abrahamic religions my friend, and I feel you should in good faith covet the golden seeds of change. Why? If they go back to their native land, they’d be taking these ideas with them to liberalize their women in the sense of giving them more rights. True, liberal ideas of socialism may not penetrate, yet a society built on archaic religious texts should be mended by its own people to fit the times- which as of now has only occurred through revolt. What say you,

My faith is over two thousand years old.  Not once in a passage does it mention throwing stones or beating your wife.  You know why?  My ancestors had more common sense.

The issue with Islam, it was built in the 7th Century by a man with more wifes than a Fundamentalist Mormon would dream of having and codified in his faith ‘The closer your are to me in action the closer to God you are’.

In Muslim majority countries, you will see its true color.  Islam is the only religion I have studied in my work in Theology spanning fifteen years that has an unrepentant doctrine of lying if it will advance the cause of spreading your faith.  Taqiyya.

That is without mentioning the lovely versions in the ahadith (sayings of Muhammad) where all measure of things are spoken of that would make even the Westboro Baptist Church blanche.

One of my concentrations of study is Islam, the others being Christianity, Paganism and Heathenry.

We can debate this if you like, but only moderate and liberal Muslims are the sort you would want near you as a neighbor for they are the exception that proves the rule or they are just laying low until they have power in the government to start behaving without the mask on.

I have had more Egyptian and Lebanese men get raging mad at me for daring to speaking arabic when they think I can not understand what they are saying when I have been around.  That I, a white guy, should dare touch their language with my unclean mouth.
