in response to reader comment: Pornography in the west and elsewhere

Submitted by Salah Ali (Norway), Sep 26, 2009 at 08:58

Ya, true. Islam is closer to nature than other religions in both sex and war. But there is also the Haram or Taboo. In Islam the private parts are Awra (shame to show)... It is for this reason that culture is made possible...For, if man and women go all the way through naked, they will be ugly. clothes cover flabby skin and fat parts of the body. If woman are beautiful and well built, there nakedness would excite and diverse social ills would sprout. Then, it is better to cover and keep wanton imagination inside one's mind. It is also my impression that the West by freeing women to do what they like had encouraged permissiveness which is detrying social life and family integrity in the West. once you let energy go loose, you cannot imagine where it would end. it destroys the west and I think it is better to reread human history and learn from Islam
