Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: Islam - a resounding success story, why and how

...I won't lose my breath on you, so I'll just refute you and prove you for the idiot that you are. 1) If Islam is a failure, how did Islamic civilization rise to prominence? The sciences, arts, and literature where all headed by Muslims most of them Arabs.

2) You falsely claim that a marriage with a specific timing is permissible in Islam. That's forbidden, at least in Sunni Islam which is followed by 95% Muslims.

3) You claim christians honored women in arts, literature, music...etc. I'm gonna assume that your referring to the renaissance, in this case most of the artists, musicians, and authors of this period were either deists, atheists, or non-religious so I guess your theory falls through, doesn't it?

4) You claim that your God is asexual, does he cuddle with his significant other? asexual simply means one who doesn't want sexual relations but it doesn't deny emotional intimacy.

5) Allah is genderless, he has no need for procreation.

6) The only reason Muslim countries are under such duress is due to colonialism and imperialism which was enforced on our lands from the late eighteenth century onwards.

7) Women in Christianity and Judaism have no rights to demand divorce even in abusive relationships, have no rights to inherit, are forbidden to talk in Church, are forced in marriage (there are verses in the bible that state women are 'brought' in marriage, not given a choice in marriage).

Islam is the only true religion and it gave women rights the European women would only get a waft of much, much later.
