- at women in a sexual way, then COVER YOUR EYES.

What? That doesn't even make sense. Muslim women wear veils to stop men looking at them in a sexual way, men kind of have a habit for looking at women in this way, and don't want to cover their eyes.

- Any curious bright minded person hoping to understand the world knows that sexual abuse of any human has absolutely nothing to do with how the person is dressed, how they behave, how old they are

Wrong... A women dressed in revealing clothes is more likley to invoke sexual feelings for a man, increasing the chances of sexual abuse. Their age often has a major factor, a pedophile will long for young girls (please don't make the obvious Mohhamed joke ^^), some men will want "mature" women etc;

- Is something wrong with a person who lookes at a women's nose, mouth, ears, cheeks, forehead, chin, temple, and needs to be protected from seeing it by having that person cover it up?

The Quran states that a woman should cover up her "intimate" parts, they don't HAVE to cover up these parts, but many chose to.

- Do you ever question your thoughts, question your opinions, question anything? If not, Islam is the religion for you,

Nope, Judaism is the religion for me, couldn't you tell by the name? :)

- it forbids questions.

Muslims believe the word of god to be the perfect way of living, why would they question it? It's also very arrogant to disregard an entire religion with 1.2 billion followers based on misinformation.

Submitting....
