  1. Not to mention that a "gay gene" has never been found and probably will never be found, ever; because it doesn't exist. But like I said, I feel bad for gay people because they are being lied to by society with the whole "Born This Way™" nonsense, as well as being told that being gay is a "perfectly OK way to be", so they never try to resist the urges to commit homosexual acts or try to change themselves to be of the normal orientation, the way that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created them to be. Matter of fact, if you suggest that people aren't "Born This Way™" and that there is hope for them to change, you're compared to Hitler and are treated like the worst human being imaginable when really, you just want what's best for that person and what's best for society.
  2. The reasons I avoid marriage are many, and have a lot to do with my life prior to embracing Islam. I can't really get into it here because then people will think that I'm "confessing sins" or "dishonoring myself" (I do not come from an honor culture) but if I was going to try and explain it... ...have you ever had so much of a specific type of food that you got tired of eating it? Like some people, when they go to college will eat ramen noodles for every meal and then later on in life, never want to have ramen again. I have something similar like that in my own life when it comes to marriage and what goes on in a marriage.
  3. You can be sure because forgiveness is in Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) nature: he is the oft-forgiving and most merciful. Never despair over Allah's propensity to forgive sin.
  4. I used to want to get married and have children, but with my (lack of) career situation, legal situation, and just the way that society is in terms of it's public morals ceasing to exist, I no longer wish to attempt a marriage or bring children into this world that I'll have to compete against the school system and culture to raise with my values. So I hope marriage is not wajib, or I'm in trouble, because there's absolutely 0% chance of me getting married and less than 0% chance of me getting married to a religious sister due to being the only Muslim in my family, the only Shia in my area that I know of, and again, my lack of a career or education.
  5. Well my mother and sister are cultural Christians, my brother in law is nothing. Not an atheist, just of no religion in general. But on holidays we will eat traditional Ukrainian food and sometimes I put on my embroidered shirt for these meals. My mom decorates Ukrainian easter eggs, just like my aunt and grandmother did. Every friday night is pizza night. But aside from that, we don't really have a lot of traditions.
  6. I went for a walk, and just so happened to look up and see a bird I've never seen before. I knew it was probably an owl of some sort, so when I got back home I looked up "species of owl in Florida" and it's apparently a short-eared owl. These are rare and elusive birds, so I'm not sure what it was doing in my neighborhood of all places, perched on the power lines. I tried to get a quick picture of it with my phone, but it flew off. Isn't Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) creation beautiful and amazing? I love seeing rare birds. My profile picture is a species of rare bird (for Florida) that was in my yard a while back (Indigo Bunting). I haven't seen one since.
  7. I think that government should get out of marriage entirely. It should be strictly a religious ceremony.
  8. Saudia is definitely not a US proxy. It would be easier for the US if that was the case, because then we would just be able to get their oil very cheaply. They're an "ally" to the US (that funded the 9/11 attackers, likely because the US needed a "second pearl harbor" to justify implementing the police state and invading Iraq and Afghanistan) but they fund Wahabbism, which is counter to the ideological interests of the people who actually own America, so they're definitely not a proxy. A proxy would be what the US was trying to establish in Afghanistan. Their hope was to fund their military, turn Afghanistan into a client state, and then unleash them on the region but because the democrats and neoconservatives are so incredibly out of touch with reality, this did not happen. And now the Taliban (who the US funded against the Soviets in the 80s) have all the military hardware that was for the Afghan army, and will likely use it against other people in the region, possibly Iran. Which works out for the US anyway, since the US hates Iran for throwing the CIA out in 79. Its the same reason why the democrat party hates Russia now: Vlad Putin came in and the democrat party lost Russia as a client state. Basically, anyone who exercises their own political power over their nation and is not subservient to the democrats, America hates.
  9. Well I wasn't so much talking about the Taliban in that case as much as I was talking about Hamas and "Palestinian Islamic Jihad". Which are two Sunni organizations and as far as I understand it, the Sunni are the ones that have the major problem with Shia and not necessarily the other way around. Like I stated, they can't refrain from "correcting" how I pray at the masjid and trying to proselytize me to come over to the Sunni cause, so I don't go anymore because I'd rather not have my presence be causing drama and contention when normal, well adjusted people are just trying to pray.
  10. "Conspiracy theorist" just means "anyone who questions the narratives of the democrat party". I know you're in Canada, but Trudeau is essentially a United States democrat with how "woke" and politically correct he is. "democrat" is a worldwide movement of globalist elites that think that they not only know better than you do, but the fact that they're elites means that they should have the right to dictate your life to you. They were thrown out of Russia by Vladimir Putin, which is why they hate him so much now.
  11. The other thing I don't understand, is why LMNOP+ are still claiming that they don't have "equal rights" in America. They're allowed to enter into so-called "same sex marriages" and are a protected class, so I really don't see what rights they allegedly don't have. I think that when they say that they want "equal rights", what they really mean is that they want special, unique rights. Such as the right to stifle criticism from religious people as "hate speech" & they also want their lifestyles to be enshrined in the culture the way that normal sexual proclivities are. They also want the "right" to indoctrinate your children and recruit them into their alternative lifestyles; and think that you as the God-fearing parent should not be able to guide your children in terms of what's halal & haram.
  12. I don't have much of a community. I live in America where people are pretty atomized and not really deeply involved with their communities. I'd say that I come from a working class White background though, grandchild of Ukrainian immigrants to America so I still keep some of the traditions of the Ukrainians in some of the clothes I wear at special occasions and such (Embroidered shirts, eating Ukrainian food, small stuff like that). I live in Florida USA so as far as the rest of the community goes, it's mostly elderly and retired people, a lot of them way wealthier than my family is. Beach/tropical culture is pretty strong down here and is partially formed from the cultures of Latin Americans and Caribbean blacks, so we've sort of got a mish-mash of culture going on down here, but like I said: most people don't really talk to their neighbors or anything. People in America are very much self-centered and alienated from one another, especially now that the political situation that the media has been fomenting has split the country between red vs blue, liberal vs conservative and people seem to hate people who aren't a part of their political tribe (It's really stupid if you ask me). I don't know most of my neighbors save for the guy across the street who ran for office here in town once and even though he lost, I wrote him a letter saying I was proud of him that he tried to get involved.
  13. I thought that you had to be a Marxist in order to be a communist? I did some reading about Marxism a while back; read Kapital and the whole nine yards, but the assertion that they have to create an atheist state is what bothered me a lot about it, that and the fact that it just seemed like a pie-in-the-sky way of viewing the world that didn't work out before kind of put me off of it. There are other people I read that call themselves "Libertarian socialists" who I think have pretty solid ideas about stuff, but I can't see any of it ever taking off in America because the capitalist system has too much of a chokehold on the culture and society for any sort of meaningful change to ever take place. Supposedly there is a line of thought called "Islamic socialism" but I haven't looked into it yet. I talk a lot about politics but I don't vote or anything anymore because of the felony charge I caught last April.
  14. Even then they don't care. There's no amount of money that someone can pay me to make me believe that the democrat party and the elite liberals that operate it aren't corrupt beyond even what we're capable of imagining. It's pretty obvious in the way that the democrats are always making appeals to Muslims but don't manage to stand for any of the traditional values that Muslims hold. They'll criticize Christianity until the cows come home for being "intolerant" of the LMNOP+ agenda and then turn around and say "WE LOVE MUSLIMS!" and act as if "Muslim" is a racial category. They're deeply ignorant and out of touch people who simply do not care what the average person wants and they think that they know what's best for those same people: more supply-side economics, bank bailouts, and the "woke" agenda. I despise the democrat party. The republican party is not great either, but they at least pretend to believe in traditional family values.
  15. I'm going to go conspiratorial here and say that I believe that if a 3rd party actually got enough votes to be taken seriously, the votes simply wouldn't be counted and the media would report them as not getting the requisite numbers because the media doesn't report news; it's a propaganda machine for the democrat party. The game absolutely is rigged and the elites rigged it in a way that allows them to hold on to power, that's why they collectively lost their minds when Donald Trump managed to capture the Republican nomination and then lay the smack down on Hillary Clinton in 2016. I don't foresee anything like that ever happening again though, the democrats now have the system completely rigged so that they'll never lose an election again. So we're headed into a one party system of tyranny, although it's not like the traditional democrat/republican dichotomy was any different. It's all the same party, just there are supposedly two of them to create the illusion that the American people have choice-- they don't. There is no choice and the elite Georgetown liberal class will never again be removed from the Oval Office. But what will most likely happen, is that these people are so inconceivably bad at running the country, that America will collapse like the Soviet Union eventually. I know. It didn't work in the Soviet Union and everywhere else where it has been tried has led to horrific human rights abuses and usually, mass starvation. China is now putting Muslims in concentration camps and has created it's own version of the Catholic church, which sadly Pope Francis is capitulating to.
  16. This entire twenty year war was futile and stupid. America should have known after what happened to the Russians that they couldn't win in Afghanistan. Now the Taliban has all of their equipment and the US has probably succeeded in making the "terror" threat worse for itself. But nobody cares what I think. I'm not an elite Georgetown liberal who went to Harvard.
  17. So Iran is working closely with people who think that they are heretics and want to kill them? That doesn't make much sense to me, honestly. The whole reason I do not go to masjid is because the only one around is a Sunni masjid and they freak out on me for praying with my hands at my sides and are always trying to "correct" me.
  18. The people's party isn't a communist party though-- My main reason why I am anti-communism is because communism, specifically orthodox Marxism, is anti-religion. If Communism could drop the militant atheist thing, it wouldn't be nearly as bad in my eyes.
  19. I agree with you on this, because how would you be able to do business if you can't meet up with people in a public place? Granted I think that with the C19 situation it's probably better to video call people for any reason rather than meeting up with them, especially if neither of you are vaccinated, but I don't see why sharing a meal with a person, especially over business matters, would be something wrong. That's not a date, especially not if other people are present. I don't know, am I misunderstanding the original point? This sounds like more of a cultural thing than an Islam thing to me.
  20. Anything aside from a Nazi or Communist party would be better than the Democrat or Republican party. Both of those parties are really just two different sides of The Corporate Party, as they get the majority of their "donations" and "lobbying" money (read: bribes) from major corporations and thus, do what is best for said corporations while throwing normal working people under the bus. Never forget: the CARES act was the largest upward transfer of wealth in human history.
  21. My sister lives in Canada. She says that the socialized healthcare is actually pretty annoying. She's had to go for MRIs at midnight, wait in line for hours just to get a covid vaccine.
  22. I'm remarkably consistent with my sexual ethics. I do not watch TV or movies because of the amount of soft-core pornography that generally fills them now (topless women, bare bottoms, sex scenes, etc). So for the specific person who wants to try and accuse me of being "intolerant" toward homosexuality, they're wrong. They're also wrong because I do tolerate so-called homosexuals: I allow them to commit their sins, whether publicly or private. I don't scream at them or physically attack them. I am "tolerant" because as a Catholic priest once said to me: "Tolerate means to begrudgingly put up with, not to accept". I tolerate homosexuals and homosexuality, and I keep it far from me because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has said that it is reprehensible. I do not accept or celebrate homosexuality the way that American culture demands that I do, and this has gotten me banned off of social media networks in the past, just for giving Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) truths about it: it is a sin, and like any sin, it sets you on the road to hell. I feel bad for homosexuals actually. They're being lied to by society, being told that they were "Born This Way™" and cannot change it, that it is just their "orientation". Well my "orientation" is to fornicate, but I became a new man when I embraced Islam and those sins were wiped away by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) because he is the most forgiving and the most merciful. Do I still sin? Of course I do, in different ways. I don't believe that anyone doesn't because we aren't perfect. We aren't the Prophet Muhammad (عليه السلام) and we don't have that quality that he had, so we're still going to sin any time that we aren't putting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) first in our lives. The difference now is that I do my best to remain conscious of my behavior, thoughts, and actions and to make dua for forgiveness when I realize that I have sinned, and I believe wholeheartedly that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) forgives me, because that's his nature. As far as "art" goes, I am consistent in that as well. I don't like when images of Jesus (عليه السلام) or other things that are sacred to Christians are denigrated or perverted, and this is because I want to live in a society that places religion first in terms of it's values. Whether that's an Islamic or a (truly) Christian nation, wherever I live is where Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wants me to be because if he didn't, I wouldn't be living in that society. His plans are better than my plans, and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the best of planners. Unfortunately, America isn't a Christian society other than the fact that the majority of people here are "cultural Christians"-- they claim to be Christians but are still materialistic and greedy, consumed with lusts of the flesh, wrathful, and proud. I don't have any hope for America becoming a Muslim nation, but if the people of America actually experienced some sort of revival and began taking their Christianity seriously moreso than just "culturally", I think it would be a good start.
  23. That's what I do: if it has a vegetarian or vegan symbol on it, generally it's ok to take those. You don't want to be taking something with gelatin (horse hooves) in it, but there are even gummy vitamins that are vegetarian/vegan. Usually they're a bit softer than the non-vegan ones I used to take.
  24. Two young boys and a little girl were riding in a car with their grandfather when a firetruck passed them, and in the front seat the saw a dalmatian dog and the children began speculating on what the firemen used the dog for. The first little boy said "They use him as a mascot, for good luck". The second little boy said "No way, they use him to sniff out people in burning buildings". The little girl piped up from the backseat: "You're both wrong, the reason that doggy is there is because he leads them to the fire hydrants"
  25. I don't watch TV or movies save for documentaries specifically because of the amount of homosexual & transsexual propaganda that comes with watching American and European TV and movies. I also don't watch it because of the amount of smut and soft-core pornography in most of these shows now. I am remarkably consistent when it comes to sexual content in that I don't want to see any of it, regardless of whether it's gay or straight. But the problem is that American society is trying to indoctrinate children into the homosexual lifestyle as was shown with those "my two dads" books earlier. I am glad that I do not have children because I would find it ridiculously hard to raise a moral child in today's environment and my heart breaks for the children of my friends who are indoctrinated with this stuff in public schools (my one buddy pulled his kids out of public school and now sends them to Catholic school specifically because of the amount of homosexual propaganda that now starts in public schools as young as the first grade, he told me all about it). and as far as "guest window" goes, we all know who you really are because you make these threads every single time we preach against the evils of the sin of Prophet Lut's people (sodomy & the homosexual lifestyle) on here. You're consistently the only person on here who feels a need to defend the sin of sodomy because you mistakenly think that you were "born gay" and I say this as lovingly as possible, but we all face trials and temptations from Satan in this life: you simply have chosen to give yourself over to it instead of doing the right thing and resisting the temptation to sin. I myself face the temptation to fornicate and abuse drugs, but you know what? I don't give in to it, because I love Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and know that the penalty for these sins is hell. Still, I preach against drug abuse and fornication because it helps me to actually remind myself of the fact that they are bad and it builds my character to resist and speak out against them and in favor of the things that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) loves. Nobody on here is preaching "hatred" of so-called "homosexuals", we're preaching what the Quran and Hadith say about them, just like we preach about what the Quran and Hadith say about heterosexual fornication, alcohol, pork, etc. The difference is that homosexuality is being crammed down on us by the culture of the Western nations that some of us live in, as something glamorous or desirable and we're sick of it and what it is doing to our societies: making a degenerate culture, creating weak and effeminate men and masculine women, confusing children and sexualizing them at an age when they shouldn't even know about these things. So don't get all uppity with us, as I've said before I don't write the mail, I just deliver it.
