Just earlier, I was talking to a new friend online. It was a very stimulating and intelligent conversation, in which we both learned an incredible amount about not only each other, but about a variety of other topics, as well. I posted up a video he linked me to, which I found to be pretty moving, and I hope you see it (What's in Your Mind?). At one point in my life, I believed it was impossible to have a civil, meaningful conversation about religion with any kind of fundamentalist (did I mention that my friend is a  Muslim fundamentalist?). Now I've come to realize that I was just biased, because all (literally, I'm not exaggerating when I say ALL) of the fundamentalists I've spoke with thus so far where I'm at (Arkansas) are incapable of civil discussion when it comes to religion (most of them were morons, too). Now I know, and through that knowledge, I'd like to think I've become a more well-rounded individual.
Just thought I'd share the good news, and a message to you all from my friend. :)

I have just joined the ex-muslim site, and it gives me such heart to see ex-muslims on this site. I can't imagne being indoctrinated from the age of three, to think clearly and reject a doctrine. Just brilliant. I am Australian, and muslims are now starting to have a stronger voice. They put up a billboard stating Jesus was a prophet of Muhammad - with not too much of a backlash. They also had an email address, and a phone no, I sent the following email to them, but have had no reply - funny that - my question to practicing muslims is the same as to christians, particularly mormons, scientologists, catholics and jehovah's witness - why are they not standing up to the the evil practices in their particular church, in their name, just to show that they also don't agree with what is going on in their name, or do they cherry pick, the same as any other christian does, just the nice bits and ignore the truly evil, vicious misogyny. That's what I don't get.

 

Email to Muslim site was as follows:

QURAN 4:34 - "Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is high, supreme."

 

Is this true:

 "Zainab" who is one of Mohamad's wife  was his adopted son's wife. Mohamed asked him to divorce her so he can marry her. Mohamad had eleven wives.

 

Is this true:

Aysha was his best-friend's daughter and she was 9-year old when he married her. Mohamad was 53.

 

What happens when a muslim woman doesn't want to wear a burqa or hajib.
