    maybe not... or maybe awareness of these deeds are one baby step closer to correcting them. Either way, apathy is a step backwards.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    Another dimension to the problem is that people use stories like this to make themselves feel elevated for being in a "better" part of the world. It's a scapegoat phenomenon. When you judge others from a distance you have the convenience of being removed from the context of the situation, and also from the culture where it took place. Instead of real learning, people engage in pointing the finger. It distracts people from looking at ways they can improve their own lives and their immediate environment, and often this distraction is self-sought. That too is a step backward.

    It's nothing more than a brainwashing tool used by extremists to control the minds of their people.

    This is evident is Islamic sewers like Iran and Afghanistan where conversion away from Islam is an instant death sentence.

    DO NOT attempt to justify Sharia law to me. Sharia Law = GARBAGE!

    This is my point. Islam cannot govern fairly; therefore it should not govern.

    Theocracy doesn't work.

    Everybody on this planet except the muslim population has figured this out and moved passed it.

    Why can Islam not evolve?

    That isn't proof Dawud is an extremist; we just had a difference on opinion regarding Shariah law.

    Nice try ... but wrong.


    Those evangical wackos do not make the law and they do not murder people for converting away.

    That is the key difference.

    You CANNOT compare the two. Doing so is rather assinine.

    That is true. I do not deny that. Of course, the world would be a vastly different place.
