in response to reader comment: Comparing Sharia Law to American Law

Submitted by JustMe (United States), Aug 30, 2006 at 14:10

First, I don't believe anyone needs to have some law degree to figure this one out. It's not that complex and it's pretty obvious to anyone who lives in the U.S. and has lived by its laws all their lives that these two are night and day from eachother.

Just trying to sort out what you're saying here. Sharia law & American law are BOTH barbaric? You downplay flogging to probably its mildest form and neglect to mention killing of innocent people because they may marry someone unapproved by the family or maybe because they have decided to become a Christian. (Ironically, they call these 'Honor Killings'). That's Sharia law and that IS barbaric!

And then you cite how in America some churches allow people to dress as they want. You know, church isn't just for the people who think they're so righteous. They should be applauded for letting anyone in as they are, as is, no matter if they are wearing scant clothing, are unshaven, have a drug problem, or alcohol on their breath. That's exactly who churches need to reach out to.

Ever read the story of Mary Magdaleine? There's a HUGE difference between these religions and the laws based out of such. Allah would have her slain, while Jesus would show her love and compassion. Please don't even get me started on their treatment of women either. Their whole way of thinking is barbaric. I honestly think if they would allow their women to be heard, there might actually be a voice of reason and possibly a chance for some normalcy for them, but, no, they are led by barbaric Muslim men hell bent on destruction and bombing and full of PRIDE and egos who go home at night to plan the next day's rampage. Lord help the woman who dares to speak up in that house! When arguing with Muslim sympathizers, it always strikes me how they inevitably try to water down the inhuman, vile acts of these subhumans.
