in response to reader comment: If Muslims must adopt Christian standards, then perhaps it should also work the other way around.

Our dear Michael who seems to believe that the Armenian and the Greek and the Syrian and Yazidi genocides are no more than "baloney" wrote

Yes, it is hypocritical to try to hold Muslims to standards that Christians didn't even practice until fewer than 200 years ago, especially since those standards are not even in the Bible.

The NT tells us about the "Render Unto Caesar.." oh you know the rest which means that the laws in the west are secular laws and secular laws are never perfect

Allah and his Qur'an? that is a different story as the Qur'an is supposed to be the words of Allah and it is valid for all places and for all times and Allah says in the Qur'an that slavery is perfect so is slavery perfect for all places and all times our dear Michael S who calls the Armenian Genocide "baloney"?

Now you tell me

If you think otherwise, then you must also believe that it's proper for the Muslims to expect us to adopt THEIR standards --

Their standards? Oh that slavery is perfect because Allah says so?

something I doubt that you espouse
