Another reply to the Wiccan Lady
hello, i am a friend of ****, and a non-muslim (hindu) and have been living in the states for all my life. it seems that you maybe misinterpreted a lot of the things that were said... here is my two cents... see what you think... as for the culture of the Arab nations in regards to islam. let me tell you that masses of cultures have been known to have been erroneous in their QUEST for human rights... entire portions of civilizations infact. Countries like Uganda, Bosnia, Vietnam, Germany, and yes even America and many Arab nations are apparently guilty of this as well... BUT, is it fair to fault a religion for the actions of those who perhaps are wrong about what it says? hmmm.... well to look at it one way, a religion is only as good as its followers...right? if that is the case.. looks like you are right... but of course there is one problem with what you suggest. you never give room for the people that have the characteritics of goodness towards women and respect for them that you are so unwilling to attribute to muslims. you are stuck in a world it seems that you have experienced... speaking prematurely about the believers of a religion when you have not met all of them...tell me? have you met everyone there? how can you say that from your scattered examples and media coverage that you receive that the only muslim is a bad muslim. you spoke to one that is giving you an open minded and good view of islam. however, you still attribute the other characterstics even though the counter example stares you squarely in the face. now as for quoting the Qur'an all day... well wouldnt the very text that the people of islam live by be a good source for a better understanding? forgive me for the for ignorance but... it seems like not quoting the Qur'an would be a bad choice...

i found your religious referance to be very interesting... Wicca is it? and it preaches an open mind? if i were to take you as an example...how good do you think my impression would be? you proudly speak of the open mind that your religion so rightly preaches... yet you have shown no sign of practicing it... though not to worry... i dont judge the all practitioners of a religion by making assumptions based on what is most likely my limited view of the situation...
