Reply to Harrak: Your words speak for themselves...
Submitted by William (United States), Apr 7, 2006 at 01:22Harrak,
You claim I somehow misrepresented what you wrote. I dug up the lecherous words that you wrote in a post on Apr 1: "[Mohammad] treated [female captives of war] very well. Some times sponsering widdows himself and marrying them. At least he did not kill them. What is better sex or blood!"
Read that five times in a row and tell me you're not ashamed of yourself. If you need help counting to five, just repeat the sentence once for every year you spent in school. That should get you most of the way to five. (Alright, that's the first and last stupid juvenile comment I'll make. I don't want to pass off lucidcrous filth as "intelligent", as you do incessantly, Harrak.)
So a Muslim's conception of treating women "very well" is to rape them after killing their husbands? "At least he did not kill them!"
My God, man, you are defending the person you believe was the infallible messenger of God and an exemplar for all humankind. He perpetrated a lifetime of multiple rapes and all you can come up with is: "At least he did not kill them!"
You excuse Mohammad's crimes by claiming "he even married them or [had] them married to his citizens"? Read what you wrote again, "[had] them married to his citizens". He not only raped, he allowed his noble Muslim warriors to rape as well! Well, how right noble of Mohammad! I was wrong all along! This man really was gallant and the picture of just perfection and mercy!
Just imagine the scene:
"Girl, come here! ... My men killed your husband in battle today... Well, actually not in battle, but afterward, we lined up the surviving men and chopped off their heads... Now we will have sex... It's okay, because we'll be married!... It's Allah's will!... Allah wills that we have sex whenever I want...! Don't worry, you will forget your husband soon..."
You brainwashed fool. You're not stupid. But even you can't mount more than a ridiculously weak defense of the man you take as the exemplar of moral perfection.
You say you love intelligent people and seem to think highly of those who call themselves "scholars". I have degrees in mathematics and economics from MIT and a masters in sociology from Harvard. I am studying for a PhD in astrophysics at another great US university. Yes, I really enjoy university. Scholarly enough for you, Mr. Harrak?
This scholar does not think very highly of the way otherwise intelligent people like you will not question their ridiculously primitive faith and break the chains that enslave them in a seventh century mentality.
Oh, and I'm not Christian, as I explained in another post.
