Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam
in response to reader comment: At the average Muslims are the best people

Your words are comforting, but episodic. I have no doubt that there are many Muslims which simply have not internalized the teaching of the mythology to the point of forced subjugation and violence of women. The mythology clearly advocates the mistreatment of women, may divorce with out support, may have multiple wives, women do not have the same legal standing as men, and may be murdered by stoning to death if men so order. You may treat the women in your life well , but your mythology does not require you to do so..
