    But you do have a point. The nation's first socialist president, FDR, did damage the US economy substantially. The results are with us today.
    So in your fantasy world the Great Depression was cause by FDR?


    I cannot help that you cling to a failed philosophy and economic model. It has never worked in the real world. It cannot. This childlike reverence for a fairy tale will fade if you are lucky once you become a mature adult.
    No one is clinging to it here bud.

    How peaceful can you be when the religion condones these actions against women?
    Uhhh because the religion its self is being exploited.... And sadly when people see this they are going to say "well Islam is violent" when the vast majority of people who follow Islam do not condone these actions.

    There are some very serious issues in the islamic world exactly because large majorities support these thing. If you want I can re-quote some polls indicating this, but I already provided them at least twice

    I'd like to believe this is a peacful religion; I've heard it so, so often. But I'm really, really having a difficult time when you see most Islamic countries treat women/girls like possessions/cattle.

    They may be a little different in the US, but, IMO, only because the US law will prosecute them for their religious actions against women/girls.

    I won't be led 'down the rosey", when their religion still believes women/girls can be killed because they have "dishonored" the family by living their lives as they see fit and not as the "male" believes they should. It's just not in me to go along with slavery in any gods name - sorry.

    Islam is a violent religion. The discrimination against non-muslims and women coming from Islam are because of Islam itself. Islam is discriminative against people, it isn't a peaceful religion or some sort.

    Feel free to call it a hate cult. There are a lot of verses from Qur'an I can post here to show you Islam's dark side.

    I agree

    Those of us who have grown up, or been exposed significantly to western culture, have no idea how primal fear can be, because we've had lives of relative ease and freedom to think and be whatever we wish.
    It depends upon one's experience, but, freedom to think and be whatever we wish carries a price and in my experience a high one...

    When you make wide generalizations like this, you're bound to be wrong.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Well in this case I'll side with the women/girls. When a religion says women/girls are unworthy and have no rights and are treated like property or animals, the I'll gladly be wrong. Thanks.
