I wouldn't be whipped because I would not be breaking the rules. I do not break rules - at least not the ones that count.

Sieg Heil! Good little Nazi rule followers never broke the rules either. That was very societally beneficial too.

Christians always talk about how Islam is so barbaric and crazy, but honestly Christianity is built on the same principles.

These days, mainstream Christianity does not see this kind of violence. But the mindset, the religious beliefs and the religious culture of fundamentalist Christianity is basically the same as Islam. The doctrines are incredibly similar.

Sometimes is hard to look into the mirror and see the imperfections.

I'm sure that is the only rule in society you break.

What if you were raped? Would you deserve the whiping? Or more accurately, would you deserve your execution?

Or are all those girls 'bad' and somehow they 'asked for it'?

You would probably enjoy living in North Korea. Everyone there follows the rules.

I love this line of reasoning. How is that these things turn into an opportunity to somehow put Christians and Christianity in thier place? It is either 'oh christians do it so Islam is not bad' or it is 'yeah Islam is crazy and barbaric but oh do not forget about Christians either.' Why do you seem to hijack threads and twist it into you little hate speach against Christians? Oh and that goes for Mystic to - comparing fundimentalists as Nazi's and the Taliban - Please.

There is a huge difference between not only the theology of Islam and Christianity but Militant Islamic Jurisprudence and Christian societies. Both of you should be ashamed of yourself for such a comparison. And don't bring up something that happened a 1000 0r 4000 yrs ago. The point is how hypocritical you guys are in talking about the barbaric aspects of modern Islam by basically ignoring it or making some little remark but then taking the opportunity to poke at Christianity. God forbid that you would say as much as you do about Christains on these threads as well as Isalm, but once you get the opportunity to do so it just turns into another way in which you can hate on Christianity. It is qiut pathetic and sickening frankly.

The comparison was on ONE characteristic only . . . OBEDIENCE to authority for its own sake as a virtue . . . no other characteristics were involved. The post I responded to saw it as virtuous . . . I chose a very un-virtuous example of it . . . that's all. I have little respect for OBEYERS . . . just for obedience sake. The reason for and purpose of rules and laws should always be the overriding driver of compliance . . . so that appropriate decisions about the obedience can be made in each unique circumstance.

I do not hate Christianity . . . I love Christ and Christ's message. I do despise "Bibleanity" and what fundamentalists have done to distort and twist Jesus Christ's beautiful message and example of love . . . into a sick, twisted, fearful, hateful, intolerant, dogma-driven, blind obedience to simplistic readings and interpretations of ancient scriptures written by primitive savages. Ask me how I really feel!
