Muslimahs are very happy

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Muslim women are sad and miserable

I have to disagree with Don on the fact that from my personal experience I have known lots of Muslim sisters who are very happy, and don't see bieng muslim as some dreadful fate. They are proud to be Muslim. No Islam is not a religion of hate, and bigotry, and violence no more that Christianity is. I do admit that some 'muslim' countries treat women horribly, worse than horribly.

However what about those of us who are Muslim who see past what these other so called 'muslims' are doing and follow in the truest teachings of the Qur'an, and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammed in the way we treat our wives. I treat my ex wife, even now after our divource with mutual respect, and love. She was my wife for 8 years, and while our marriage didn't last longerI have shown her nothing but love, and respect. We pretty much shocked the judge he was expecting us to rant and rave about each others faults that lead to our divorce, but he got the exact opposite. Two rational adults handling the situation without disrespecting eachother. And My wife is a Christian.

You say you've had sexual relationships with Muslim Women, what was the result of those. How long did the relationships last. I'm not trying to degrade you, or speak ill about you, but you are speaking about women who were treated Subhuman, what did you do within the course of those relationships to bring them to a higher level of self esteem.

You sound like a decent person, and I'm sure that you may have helped them to realize thier worth as a human being, after all that is what a real Man would do for a woman he is having a relationship with.
