I like the TV series, "The Closer".

Both gender researchers and members of the media have claimed that the series has "expanded the vocabulary of what is acceptable for women as seen through the lens of popular culture."[11]

  • “We’ve certainly seen women in powerful positions before," says author and gender researcher Maddy Dychtwald, pointing out Angie Dickinson in 1974's “Police Woman,” and “Cagney & Lacey” from 1981. But those women were largely token in a sea of dominant males, and most important, strove to be like the men that surrounded them.” In contrast, Dychtwald says the former CIA interrogator played by Kyra Sedgwick, “retains (and revels in) her femininity, keeps her composure, can handle the two 'sexist pigs' who bait her due to their jealousy and insecurities, and not lose her head.”[11]

But didn't you think it was a bit ridiculous how in the middle of all this blood shed, they managed to tie in "the story of one man's love for his wife" - it was still a pretty good film though.

As I recall, the film 'shooting dogs' (also know as 'Beyond the gates') was better.

and, 'The God Delusion' Richard Dawkins.

I immensely enjoyed reading the book during my student days. I remember thinking that even though we accept usual theological/philosophical arguments about God from a theistic perspective, a few of those arguments are actually unsound/weak if put to rational and/or scientific analysis. You learn a lot from this exceptionally well written book even if you disagree with him on the whole.

Could you possibly link us to the documentary, please?

Rusesabagina's wife was with him during the madness of genocide. They both played their role in saving the refugees from the Interhamwe. Anyway I didn't find their little love story odd. It blended in well. However, I think this movie could have been done better. The plot and sequence of events is rather linear with emphasis entirely on the particular Hotel. It appeared to me that the movie lacked the urgency of actions and dialogue during an event as horrible as genocide and as heinous as the one in Rwanada. Overall a good, educating movie.

Oh and thanks for introducing me to the "Shooting Dogs". I was not aware of this movie. I can't wait to find it, download it, and watch it.

The documentary was so insightful. I couldn't help but to agree with him on many of his points. If you sit back and actually contemplate what he says, there is a lot of sense and rationality in his arguments. Organised religion, corruption and hierarchies that contradict the very crux of their message.

I watched it on DVD, but I'll try find you the link as soon as I can!

Loved them both. Especially the second one..... *waits for hate comments*

What?

Aside from the fact that Dawkins is a demagogue...

Let's assume he's a proper intellectual and his arguments against the existence of God are strong...

If you "love" that book, does that not mean you no longer believe in God? It makes no sense to "love" a treatise on atheism. You could say it was interesting or that it is worth reading for the sake of becoming familiar with a different point of view... but to say that you "loved" it?? I don't even know what to say. You are beginning to enter Al-Afasy / S.hassan / haidar_al_karrar territory, where it is not even worth it to gauge what you are thinking...

If I read a book by Salman Rushdie, does that make me an apostate?

I mean really? Could you have made any more of an ignorant generalisation?

I disagree fully with his core beliefs, however I did agree with many points that he made in the documentary. It does not necessarily mean that I'm inclined towards Atheism just because I may have expressed a love for the film. You can't approach religion half-minded baradar. You and I may hate on atheists all we want, but in the end - he does provide an insight of perspectives, some valid and invalid, which for me, have actually strengthened my beliefs as a Muslim (not an atheist, baradaram!) So relax, I haven't deviated to the dark side.

Right. Loving the documentary makes me an atheist, you said? *sniff*

I don't know what definition of "love" you are going by, but to me -- and I presume, to most of the world -- if you love a documentary, it means the message resonated with you in a very personal way.

Take, for example, the video I posted above. That Zizek documentary. A lot of it resonated with me. I agreed with most of what Zizek said in that documentary. But I would not say I freggin "loved" it, because that implies something more.

And this is even disregarding, remember, that Dawkins is not an academic; it is disregarding that he uses very weak, childish arguments. (Dawkins is no David Hume, that's for damn sure). That's why many non-religious or even anti-religious people are turned off by him; outside of his cult following, he is not really taken all that seriously.

It's like me saying "I love Yasser al-Habib's lectures," and then claiming that I do NOT like to hear grotesque descriptions of you-know-what. That's all Yasser Habib talks about; I can't love his lectures without loving that other thing.

    • actually, one such effort done is: (1) Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shi’i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. http://ammanmessage.com/the-three-points-of-the-amman-message-v-1/ but extreme wahhabis reject this. let's not be extremists like them. i remember, during 2003 invasion of iraq, thousands of gi joes died. today, the modern jihadists are their foot soldiers. how to prevent this (being foot soldiers for US or some other entities) from repeating itself in future? 1. spread the fact that shiism is not majoosi/jewish creation. 2. while not belittling others, shiism has strong evidence to be the islam  propagated by the Prophet, preserved through His Ahu Bayt as. 3. let's race towards good deeds - you don't have time to throw stones during a 100m dash, do you?
    • Looking at anyone who is not your partner in marriage - with lust - is haram.
    • Al-Salamu Alaykum This is what you should do if you found a lost item: Question: Suppose that Muslim, residing in a non-Muslim country finds a suitcase (full of clothes) with or without the owner’s nametag on it. What should he do with it? Answer: A suitcase of personal belongings normally has the nametag through which the owner can be contacted. If he knows that it belongs to a Muslim or a non-Muslim whose property is sacrosanct (or even if there is a likelihood —a considerable likelihood— [that it belongs to a non-Muslim whose property is sacrosanct]), it is necessary for him to announce it for one whole year that he has found that item [so that the owner can come forward and claim it]. If he cannot find the owner [even after the lapse of one year], he should, based on obligatory precaution, give it in charity. However, if he knows that it belongs to a non-Muslim, it is permissible for him to keep it provided that he is not legally bound to announce what he finds in that country or to hand it over to the authorities, etc. (1) In the latter case, he is not allowed to take possession of it; rather it is compulsory on him to act in accordance with the legal undertaking. Question: If I find an item in a European country without any distinctive sign on it [identifying the owner], is it permissible for me to keep it? Answer: If it has no distinctive sign by which one can contact the owner, it is permissible for you to keep it except in the case [of the legal undertaking] mentioned earlier.

    • Guest Mother of 3
      Is it permissible to have an abortion at 3weeks old if the mother has 3 children aged 11years, 10years  & 18 months, she struggles with them aged 42 and has no family support? The older children are from a previous marriage but the ex husband does not support in any way or financially. Her husband works long hours and comes home 10pm most days of the week. She works 16 hours a week and does the tuition, swimming, and school runs. She feels tired and drained most days and feels she cannot cope if she has another child. She feels quite alone and depressed as she would never consider abortion but due to her circumstances feels this will put more pressure on her marriage. Her husband said he would support her if she aborts the pregnancy. She feels she is going through depression and this pregnancy will make it harder for her and in turn she will not be able to cope.
