I agree with you. I am a Christian, I also know some very nice Muslim people. It is the radicals cause trouble, not all Muslims.

and obviously, not ALL Muslim women cover their faces.

Look at these dating sites

Muslim Matrimonial, Muslim Marriage, Muslim Singles

Welcome to SingleMuslim.com - Single Muslim USA

Obviously, Muslims women have the freedom to choose their own marriage partners.

I noticed only 2 NT passages, and neither speaks the way you are trying to express.

And what do you mean by half a book, the bible you are referring to is actually 66 books, and if you know anything about Christianity, the coming of the NT overrules the OT.
The OT is nothing more than a history book.

NO, some muslim women have that right, and you will find them mostly in free countries, though there is an increasing number of honor killings happening in these very countries, for this exact reason.

I was referring to the other poster i quoted. Those are, as I said, the common given verses for a womans modesty. I didnt say they were the rules, end all, top choices for a college paper on the subject.

Find me ONE verse that says the OT doesnt matter at all and the NT is the only thing we should refer to. Find me that exact verse and Ill apologize to you for thinking youre an idiot for believing and spreading such hogwash.

That's correct, not relevant at all.

You will not find verses, but if you knew anything about the religion, you would know the difference between the OT and NT.

The Christians stole the God from the jews, and wrote their own book, all religions do this.
Islam did it when they took the God from the Christians.

I believe the only part where they use the laws from the OT, and is still in some controversy, is where jesus claims to enforce the laws of moses.

But even here, the Christians do not use the hundreds of laws in the Torah, but rather the ten comandments.

Of course you are going to bed, you have nothing to argue about.

But here is the only verse I was speaking of, from Mathew.

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

And as I said, Christians will say this applies only to the ten commandments.

Christians do not use the Torah in any part of their religion.
