I find it amusing how Muslims constantly refer to sex before marriage as being immoral. Yet chosing sexual partners in Western culture is 99.999% consensual, and there are laws to protect where it is not consensual.

Lets look at the Muslim model, what percent of temporay marriages are moral? Is the money that women receive to have sex with their husbands any different to what a western Prostitute recieves?

What percentage of Western Marriages are forced, as opposed to what is the persentage of Muslim marriages are forced?

What is the difference between rape and a forced marrige? In both cases women are forced to have sex against their will?

Your lack of moral education means you cannot understand that what you believe is sanctioned and ethical behaviour, would be considered religiously sanctioned rape and prostitution.

Yes there are and have been paedophile Priests in the Catholic Church, but I have never heard a Catholic Priest preaching about how great it is for a 53 yo man to have sex with a 9 year old girl.

I have never heard about any Christian literature that supports having sex slaves is what God wants?

Yet Muslims keep trying for the high moral ground with no concept of morals or ethics.

Forced marriages and temporary marriages are rape and prostition. Slavery and sex slavery is illegal and highly immoral.

Marriage is supposed to be between conscenting Adults, and a beautiful and secure institution, not the pathetic sham most muslim marriages are.

The Western system may not be perfect, but it can criticise itself and change, hopfully for the better. The Islamic model is failled and broken. Every where islam is dominant, the people live sad and pathetic lives. Your Amin are the result of the sad and pathetic Muslim system.

Criticise the West and Christians all you like, but expect to be called on the immoral and unethical religious values you hold. Frankly I consider you an idiot.
