in response to reader comment: Very nice reflection, M Tovey: time comes when the only thing you see is the Muslim man

It's hard for some of us not to be empathetic when we read of 'inhumanities against humanity;' such as written about here. Of the many topics that Dr. Pipes' forum posts here, this seems to hit all the emotional buttons of the inner self; of the many young ladies having been mistreated for the cause of socially unjust mistreatments of an ideology that has no respect for humanity in general, let alone the maladjusted thinking that domination of the maidens of the world is somehow justified for 'religious reasons;' sorry to hear such things happen, but that's just plain wrong and in civil societies, criminal.

This is not to say Islam is alone in the mistreatment of the female in a familial setting; it is as bad, and in some instances, worse in other anti-social settings like that in several situations that have plagued the social media platforms and national new like that in America. But how does that comparison make it right? Clue: it does not. Even to the more intrinsic aspect of it in the supposedly moral world of religious conduct, whether 'Christianesque' or Islamic pretentions, what does it say about the respect of those who claim their 'god' said it was/is OK. It is the height of spiritual disrespect to make that claim.

From this observer's perspective of being a disciple of the Nazarene and being kuffar, mistreating the women-folk is a circumstance of changing attitudes in the world environment that is heading back to the dark ages in which attitudes towards women were less than acceptable; did the Christ teach that? Look at the evidence; the first to the empty tomb were His female followers; the ones most forgiven were the women that had been mistreated by the so-called religious righteous; that would be brought to the Savior for condemnation of licentious and promiscuous behavior, and He forgave them: but where were the men that were partners and guilty of the same acts of fornication (sounds of crickets here)?

History is filled with that continuous lack of equity towards the women that are more than often placed in their environment of humiliation by the very same individuals who condemn them in participation. Again, what did the Nazarene teach? He taught the law handed down from Mt Sinai; and added an emphasis, that even as Moshe taught divorce was acceptable in specific instances of adultery, the relationship of one man, one woman, IS the eternal model with no other real righteous way out, according to the law.

Deferring and making excuses for licentious behavior is sin and is judged accordingly; even today. The Nazarene eventually going to the cross for salvation and remission of such sin, for both the man and the women, both Muslim and Kuffar, is the only way to see how this was to be handled in forgiveness before the throne in Eternity.
