    It is illogical for any Muslim to consider Muhammad 'the perfect being' but only because the Koran itself says differently.

    The intellectually honest people are not those who are looking for an excuse to condone having sex with 9 year old children simply because those who engage in such acts are part of their group.

Its no wonder honour killings, suicide bombings, beheadings, torture and pedophilia are prevelent in muslim societies today. Im not saying that those things do not happen in other cultures but they are not accepted.
    by your logic, we should hold the american founding fathers as criminals because slavery is a crime against humanity, and they owned slaves.

    what he did was wrong, i'm not arguing that, but it was the society he was raised in, murder and pedophilia were all part of the society of middle east, and applying todays standards to mohammed is just ridiculous.

    Do you ever post anything that isn't a shrill reminder that you value nastiness and moronic saber rattling over substance?

    Two issues here, the first being that they should be open to criticism for owning slaves. There is nothing compelling us to condone them other than our own self-made preconceptions. Secondly, nobody today is suggesting we own slaves because they did, as their ownership has absolutely no bearing on how we view the subject today.

    Most religious belief is illogical to begin with, so the logic of the matter means less than the actual belief.

    Mohammad's personal example is being used to justify behaviors today, and this is because so many DO consider him to be perfect. Heck, you can't even draw the man without causing outrage among millions and millions.

    Where have I condoned it? If you're going to accuse me of something, I expect you to back it up.

    It is perfectly valid to look at a historical person within a historical context. If you have a problem with that, good for you.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
