Dear Ditat

First of all, I hope you are not employing taqiya to us filthy infidels and that you are being honest in your post. Now let me criticize (haram according to Islam) you and your faith as the filthy infidel westerner that I am.

What some of us find "satanic" in your religion is not the items of your list and you know that Islam is not JUST these conveninetly selected items. Our issues have more to do with the POLITICAL/LEGAL aspects and LESS with the RELIGIOUS aspects.

Wanting to pray 5 times a day and perform ablution and wash regularly is good theology by itselft and we have nothing against that. So do not try to pretend we are ignorant of what is truly problematic in your religion.

This is a short list of what we find "satanic" and do not pretend Islam does not sanction it or that you are unfamiliar/unaware with:

1) Doctrine of supremacy (muslims are the best of creatures while the rest of the world is the worst of creatures)
2) Executing apostates
3) Beating women to submission
4) Women testimony counts as half of men
5) Women inherit only a portion of what men inherit
6) Allowing child marriage (6 year olds) and consummation (9 year olds)
7) Viewing the entire world as the house of Islam and the house of WAR
8) Teaching that Christians and Jews must a) convert b) live as second class citizens (Dhimmis) in muslim controlled areas in submission and humiliation by paying protection money c) die
9) Allowing men to divorce women just by saying three times "talaq" but not the opposite.
10) Allowing execution of homosexuals and adulterers.
11) Allowing parents to be judge, juror and executioner to matters of honor in their own family and stay unpunished for killing even their own children.
12) Demanding absolute respect for your religion and your, problematic to say the least, prophet while you in return respect nothing that does not follow your worldview.
13) The doctrine of offensive Jihad. Yes you know the kind that I am talking about. The one that Moe and all the following Caliphs employed for more than 1000 years to Europe, Africa and Asia.
14) Taqiya, since war is deceit.
15) Allowing women sex slaves (what your right hand possess)
The list can go on but I will stop it here just to give you an idea.

So how about pretending you live as a non Muslim for a week my dear doctor? All you have to do is denounce all the above aspects of your religion, treat women the SAME as men and the faithful the SAME as the unfaithful and use your reason and humanity to guide your life; unless you think that you are inherently evil. But if you do that, you do not know what person from your inner social circle might kill you for apostasizing right?

SHAME on you!
