A story recently out talks about a mother whom was breastfeeding her child that was asked not to. Apparently she "caused an uproar" by this normal act. I want to point out that while the article headline claims that this was due to Muslims, nothing in the text shows that to be true. 

 

Britain has been in ass-kiss mode with Muslims for years, and I don't get it. A blind man was removed from a bus with his seeing-eye dog because a Muslim freaked out because dogs are ritually unclean. Really? Are people that just had sex no longer allowed on British Busses because they are ritually unclean? Can I hop on with a package of bacon? 

 

Women Constables are asked to wear a head covering when entering a Mosque. Really? Are the Male Constables issued sideburns for entering Hasidic Synagogues? How about a Yarmulke?  There is no reason that those in authority need capitulate to others. You believe this, I believe something else, there is no reason for me to act like anything else is the case. 

 

The idea of Sharia Courts is absurd to me as well. How can you have a system that is not regulated by the government, yet it is binding? A system of law that does not recognize women as equal? Gays as legal and ethical beings? Shouldn't the law of the land stay with that of the country rather than entering this slippery slope? Sharia Banks, Mortgage companies, and courts. Why allow the division? Set up a bank that only those of one religion can use. Why not white only banks? 5th generation British only banks? Why is it absurd one way and not the other? 

 

Clearly the division is causing the expectation that blind people can't use the bus or that women can't breastfeed in public. It's barbaric and time that the British people stand up for themselves. If you don't stand up for yourselves sooner or later, there is going to be a legal precedent set that is not going to be favorable or in accordance with long standing British Law. You'll want to have nipped it in the bud before you get to that point.

Yes rattle off the list, that'll do the trick.

Are you now really in an attempt to fend of the cognitive dissonance degrading yourself to defending harassing Muslim women and calling them scum?

Comment by Sassan K. on July 16, 2011 at 1:04pm
I have no cognitive dissonance. I have no clue what that individual was doing - and it is not relevant to this discussion. Simply said, I will call all Muslims who support Shariah law as scum - whether female or male.

I won't pursue this any further. It is clear enough for anyone to see now.

It absolutely is.

Moderators: yet again we have what would otherwise be a sensible discussion highjacked by Sassan with his posts of ad-hominem, misrepresentation, insult and disgusting allogation (See above: all Muslims who support Sharia law are "scum": in most of its use, it is a very effective village-level judicial system that deals with property disutes and the like.)

Might I propose that he really is a troll and that you consider your options?

There is no point in trying to debate anything while he continues to highjack each subject in this way - and I'm not responding to him any further.  Others might feel likewise that feeding this ranting troll is a bad idea.
