God is for idiots

It is a crime against humanity, not just women.  Admittedly women get hit harder by it.

As I have stated before , it is the most barbaric , primitive , and mysogynistic of the monotheisms .

I abhor all religions.  Is it possible to have a greater abhorrence for something.  If so that is my feeling toward islam.  I think islam is a threat to civilization, and the coming war will be the west against islam.

Islam is...Highly misunderstood in the western world and we need to WAKE UP!!!

Islam is a Payday in a Clark Bar wrapper. Everything else is a Payday….

Tribes… Just like here in the USA… Tribes.

What do you mean Belle Rose? You sound sympathetic to Islam.

Comment by Belle Rose on April 14, 2013 at 11:09am

I mean that most people here in the US are totally ignorant to it. I live in a place where there are many Muslims that you see every day. It's widely accepted that we let them dress how they will, no one discriminates against them but along with that no one really understands the horror behind the religion. I've only recently had my own eyes opened to it with kOrsan's discussion on Stockholm Syndrome and I know that most people, at least where I live don't know half the shit that goes on in Arab countries.

Thanks for asking that btw Unseen, don't want anyone to think I'm "pro" Islam. I'm pro women...

@Unseen I read Bella Rose's comment as being that we need to wake up to the threat it poses (admittedly it's ambiguous, your interpretation hadn't occurred to me until I read your comment.).  Which many on the multicultural left simply haven't done yet; they seem to tacitly approve of every culture other than our own or at the very least insist on a moral equivalence.  (And ironically many of them insist they are feminists.)  The "new atheists" have at least ditched blind multiculturalism and are willing to point at another culture and say "in objective terms that culture is bad" (or at the very least "[even] worse than ours") if nothing else on account of horrific levels of misogyny.

The religious right, to give them their due, is well aware of the threat from Islam, but of course they look on it as the battle between a good religion (theirs) and a bad one (Islam) and in fact their proposed alternative is also a pile of shit.
