  1. #29 Which country would you live in?

    Assumptions about what?
  2. #29 Which country would you live in?

    Then why would you trust imperfect human beings to enact Sharia law? Ideally, shouldn't you guys be waiting for the perfect Mahdi to come and do it perfectly rather than advocating for imperfect human beings to do Sharia law.

    Which part of my post is insulting to you though? The parts where I am just pointing out facts. Do facts insult you?
  4. What advice would you give your younger self

    Don't hang out with that girl anymore.

    You're entitled to believe that, I guess. The imams were actual historical figures. I don't believe that they were infallible. And the Mahdi sounds more like a myth to me.
  6. #29 Which country would you live in?

    I reiterate, there is nothing just about sharia law for me as a woman. There's nothing just about it for other minorities as well.

    Yeah, these are the kind of horrific ideas I'm trying to point out to everyone? Death for blasphemy. We will kill you for saying things about our religion that we don't like. Even Christians have adjusted with the blasphemy thing to get with the times.

    I can have a strong dialogue about the more violent parts of our religion without insulting anyone. We have a history of enslavement and killing non Muslims and killing gay people and treating women as second class citizens, this kind of thing is still happening today, and it isn't just culture. Parts of it is justified through doctrine.

    No, they're definitely part of Islam.
  10. #29 Which country would you live in?

    There isn't anything hopeful or just about sharia law. And I just don't buy into the "Islam conquering the world" nonsense.
  11. #29 Which country would you live in?

    Because I think dissenting opinions on whatever platform is productive, especially considering the fact that Islamic doctrine tends to "zombify" people. To be transparent, my goal is to spread a seed of doubt, at least, about the very vicious, violent, and misogynistic aspects of the religion. Islam needs more secular voices. I am one of them.
  12. #29 Which country would you live in?

    I don't believe in the Mahdi anymore.
  13. #29 Which country would you live in?

    I'd commit suicide if I had to live in a nation with Sharia law and no way out.
  14. Dead marriage

    My friend was in a similar situation and it happened here in the U.S. Her brothers married her to a 25 year old when she was 15, they had the Sheikh come over and they sat her down and she repeated the lines not knowing what they meant. After it happened, she told me she remembered thinking, "what the hell just happened?" He ended up being so physically abusive to her that their 10 year old son called the cops on him. She divorced him but she had to beg her brothers to let her do it. He's hiding in Iraq now. Anyway, my friend I guess was fortunate to get out of that situation. All you can do is support your cousin, but if there's any abuse you need to call the authorities.
  15. When the women is jealous

    I understand what you are saying. I haven't written off Islam (completely) My point is things like this: And MANY other parts of Islam have been historically and CONTINUE to be weaponized against Muslim women today!!!!! Everyone can stop pointing to just MY experiences now, I'm talking about a greater issue here.
