  •  You say it was from 1400 years ago (0+ / 0-)

    right?

    And the old testament going back further also contain extreme bigotry against women?

    OK.

    You argue that Islam as a religion in general is suspect while Christianity and Judaism are not simply because what is written in the old testament is no longer applied while the text from 1400 years ago still is ( not all Muslim communities apply to Sharia today BTW)?

    To me it is the individuals and the communities who commit these crimes under the guise of one religion or other shouldbe the blame instead of the equally old and the disturbing dogmasunless we are blaming them all equally for what they have in their origins.
    When you selectively generalize one religion as the cause of something that is obviously more universal whether it was followed in the past or currently however then you are making a fallacious and bigoted claim.
