  1. The ads work fine with both classic or fluid views (with a line or two of extra code). I'm not a big fan of the new view but the change happened when I was MIA and I believe it was as a result of majority members liking it? I don't know.
  2. Salams, I'll start off by saying that I don't have sexual attraction to other men, in fact, I find that all guys are gross and have cooties. Though I'm believer that homosexuality is a genetic predisposition and not a choice. Based on that alone, Allah will not burden a soul beyond what it is capable of. I doubt Allah (ST) with all his just and might would punish you for thoughts and desires you have no control of. Outside of you committing an obvious sin of zinna, I think you've done more than what someone in your shoes has done in terms of attempting to have relations with the opposite sex despite of your lack of attraction. I'm sure you've heard this before, but many believe that this is your test, to live a life of desires that you'd have to place under control as acting on them means committing a heinous sin. This thread is probably another step in the right direction but unfortunately, I doubt you'd get any open responses. Have you attempting seeking a support group? Does such a support group even exist? Is it time to start one and this isn't the first time I read such a thing on this forum. Wishing you the best. Ws.

    Thoughts 2020

    Printing, sticking on my house door ;)
  4. I completely disagree. Iraq should be ruled by a just ruler from a party that will be fair to all, regardless of religious affiliation. You're making it seem that with 100% certainty that an Iraqi Shi'a theocracy would be equitable and just purley by having a turbaned person in power claiming piety and morality. I don't buy this one single bit. The Shi'a government in Iraq had their chance to prove themselves but unfortunately the rancid smell of corruption covers even that of Saddam's.
  5. That's what I mean, some of our other, lighter forums internal to ShiaChat..
  6. Salams, I would suggest that if you're looking for that sort of environment to simply avoid the more controversial forums such as debates forums or politics/current affairs and focus on some of the more holistic, feel good forums like the family or science forums.
  7. Wow that joke flew so high over your head you got whiplash.
  8. Its undeniable Iran's a victim of US/Israeli foreign policy, though many other countries, groups of people and even certain Iranians within Iran are victims of Iran's own aggression towards them both due to domestic and foreign policies. This is truly what makes politics so dirty, you will not find a infallible nation (well, maybe Canada, lol). Mixing religion and state in today's socio-political landscape is when you start treading on dangerous grounds and end up with the tension we have today in the Shi'a world.
  9. Why can't we talk about it? If I personally believe they're barbaric practices, then that's my opinion and I'm entitled to it. Yet, I respect my brother in faith who's Marji3 has more schooling than my years on earth if he wishes to practice it as a result of his Marji3's findings. The day I become a mujtahid and can intellectually challenge a scholar about his findings is the day I will publically speak out against these practices. Until then, if my grand Marji3 has not spoken out against these practices, I will not.
  10. What? It's not actually called the Saddami Gulf?
  11. Looks like the devil western news agencies were right all along. https://en.farsnews.ir/newstext.aspx?nn=13990222000265 Glad the Iranian government did not sleep on this one and there was no cover up. Kudos! Baby steps but we'll get there.
  12. Don't care who the original poster is, I care about the links to news agencies which have atleast proven themselves more trustworthy than those of Iran's when it comes down to military accidents The next couple of days will settle the typical 3 day dust of war we expect from that region. As for me being judgemental, yes, I hold my kind (Shia's) to higher standards against corruption and my tolerance to nonsense with them is much lower.
  13. If you're insinuating that I'm claiming that Ayatollah Khameneii and his inner circles were part of this coverup, then you've not only labelled me as a fitna monger, but also as a person who is completely clueless as to how a theocracy works. No, I don't think that the Ayatollah was part of this inexcusable coverup as I respect his turban and so does he. Unfortunately, this event has raised many questions regarding undeniable corruption within the military ranks that would cause the turban of the Imam be aired on national television repeating false, humiliating information being fed from below. Different topic I suppose and just lots of repressed anger. My apologies.
