I ask anyone who wants to really know about Islam’s treatment of women to follow the link. View the pictures. See what this “religion of peace” justifies. I must warn you though, do not do so unless you are ready for it. The pictures are not pleasant to see and not pleasant to consider.
Keep in mind that most of the men involved in this are free and clear. Women are afforded few rights in Islam and less when its against a man.
Qur’an (2:282) – "And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women."
Bukhari (6:301) – "[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’"
Muslim (4:1039) – "A’isha said [to Muhammad]: ‘You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses’"
Ishaq 593 – "As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.’"
Bukhari (72:715) – A woman seeks Muhammad’s help in leaving an abusive marriage, but is ordered by the prophet to return to her husband and submit to his commands.
And for some insane reason, liberals and feminists support and apologize for these people.
We typically think of terrorism as a political act.
But sometimes it’s very personal. It wasn’t a government or a guerrilla insurgency that threw acid on this woman’s face in Pakistan. It was a young man whom she had rejected for marriage. As the United States ponders what to do in Afghanistan — and for that matter, in Pakistan — it is wise to understand both the political and the personal, that the very ignorance and illiteracy and misogyny that create the climate for these acid attacks can and does bleed over into the political realm. Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times op-ed columnist who traveled to Pakistan last year to write about acid attacks, put it this way in an essay at the time: “I’ve been investigating such acid attacks, which are commonly used to terrorize and subjugate women and girls in a swath of Asia from Afghanistan through Cambodia (men are almost never attacked with acid). Because women usually don’t matter in this part of the world, their attackers are rarely prosecuted and acid sales are usually not controlled. It’s a kind of terrorism that becomes accepted as part of the background noise in the region. …
Michelle Malkin » Wheeling & dealing: Snowe pow-wows with Obama; Landrieu, Schumer, Daschle behind the scenes
I can’t wait until we get rid of these damn DIABLOs.
Don’t mean to give you more indigestion on a Saturday night, but thought you should see this from The Hill:
Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine)…is still in talks with President Barack Obama regarding her final vote on the legislation. Snowe said that she spoke to Obama while he was aboard Air Force One en route to Asia earlier this week…”He restated his intention of working with me on this issue,” Snowe told a group of reporters. She said that there “there are still fundamental issues that still need to be confronted” before she would considering voting for the bill during later votes…Snowe did not define how many Republican senators would be needed to call the bill bipartisan, but said “I hope it is more than just me.” She also called on the president to attract more Republicans to vote for the bill. “This is a place where the president could play a pivotal role,” she said.
About damn time.
The liberals who like to allow some republican pretend they are Catholic are going to start screaming that this is the Church getting involved in politics. The truth is that GIVING them communion is getting involved in politics.
Catholics believe in the sanctity of an unborn child and abortion is paramount to murder. Communion cannot be offered to those who support abortion, unless, it seems, you are a politician. Especially if you are a Kennedy. These liberals have been pretending to be Catholic for a long, long time.
Finally, the Church is starting to stand up for what they believe. Its good to see.
Of course, it took the ultra-liberal actions of the Obama administration and its ilk to cause this. I think the conservative and religious push back that Obama is setting up is going to be absolutely amazing.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin has banned Rep. Patrick Kennedy from receiving Communion, the central sacrament of the church, in Rhode Island because of the congressman’s support for abortion rights, Kennedy said in a newspaper interview published Sunday.
The decision by the outspoken prelate, reported on The Providence Journal’s Web site, significantly escalates a bitter dispute between Tobin, an ultra orthodox bishop, and Kennedy, a son of the nation’s most famous Roman Catholic family.
"The bishop instructed me not to take Communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me Communion," Kennedy told the paper in an interview conducted Friday.
Kennedy said the bishop had explained the penalty by telling him "that I am not a good practicing Catholic because of the positions that I’ve taken as a public official," particularly on abortion.
