Question...do you really think you impress people talking like that?

Everyone has freewill, braderjoe. If one wants to accept Islam as truth, that is their decision, and I believe they have every right to do so. I would never want that freedom taken from me, so I pray it is never taken from anyone.

Thank you, sususushi... I was beginning to think I'm more ignorant than I thought. (No one is allowed to comment on that! Haha)

No, I'm serious. I can't remember ever understanding one of his posts. It's like he makes a bunch of random comments and then runs it through babelfish four or five times before posting.

Wow - the justifications on this thread!

Muslim man shoots wife. Okay. It happens. People wack out and do despicable things. That is how we all react.

Muslim man goes to the trouble to have a weapon around that will allow him to behead his wife. OOOPPPSSS. Different message altogether. Honor killing and - he used a method designed to create total terror in the community.

I would not say these two acts are calculated to send the same message.

Muslim man shoots his wife . . . he wanted her dead.

Muslim man beheads his wife . . . he was on a mission and carrying out a culturally ACCEPTABLE (in HIS CULTURE, not in America) method of ridding himself of his wife.

Plus, this is a man who supposedly wanted to build bridges between westerners and his own culture.

Yeah, that built a bridge alright - one I don't plan to ever traverse.

Pray tell which culture it is that's acceptable for a man to behead his wife?
