    I love how people try and speak for us Muslim women.

    So yes, I walked down my street fine and without fearing how the males in my family would react
    Any more lies you wish to get off your chest?

And I'm still not sure it's the whole of the varying sects of Islam which practice this oppression of women.

    Already there. Because Christianity I'm pretty sure existed with the New Testament. And Christian tradition, such as giving away the bride, is steeped in the tradition that women were property and nothing more. So your sig actually has little to nothing to do with my comment.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Christianity attempting to shed its blood filled history by bringing out a Bible Num 2.

    We Muslims have too much respect for our holy book to deface it and white wash it

    That's fine for you and I'm glad actually. Are you claiming what was said doesn't happen in other parts of the world? To millions of Muslim women?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Good one! If only most Christians had as much respect for the Bible, they might actually read it...

    Sure, but are you also saying it is only Muslim women who face domestic abuse?
    'Cause I can tell you it is a massive problem in the Western world as well.

    I totally agree Laila. However in the interest of fairness.

    Woman in the western world have a better chance at recourse then probably many woman in the Middle East. That's unfortunately sad but true

    Believe me, if the practice involves something like killing an unbeliever, stoning a woman to death for sitting in a car with a man who is not her husband or relative, etc., then EVERY other Christian denomination is going to stand up and say that this ain't in the Bible and it ain't Christian.

    Christianity demands an individual declaration of faith. By simply being the son or daughter of a Christian doesn't make you one. You need to choose that freely yourself. Other religions may not like you walking away, but they aren't going to kill you for it.
