What makes our society better than Islamists

Reader comment on item: Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World
in response to reader comment: 250,000 USA rapes annually in the USA

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Jun 22, 2011 at 02:47

Dear Dr Pipes:

Rape is a violent crime and it is unforgivable no matter where it occurs. Naushad Omar cites preponderance of rape as an example why "US is not better than his society". Naushad's argument is both irrelevant, cheap and absurd because rapes occur in every society of the world and they should not occur anywhere.

What makes the US great is something that most Islamic countries cannot even dream of. I will cite a few examples: 1) Freedom to think freely 2) Freedom to speak freely 3) Freedom to try creative ideas (like coloring your hair blue or building a robot in a highschool class) 4) Freedom to worship any way you like and any place you like 5) Freedom to not share your husband with three other women 6) Freedom to fire our leaders without killling them. The list can go on and on but I will stop.

Submitting....
