"According to the Sharia, despite declarations of the equality of the sexes before God, women are considered inferior to men, and have fewer rights and responsibilities. A woman counts as half a man in giving evidence in a court of law, or in matters of inheritance. Her position is less advantageous than a man’s with regard to marriage and divorce. A husband has the moral and religious right and duty to beat his wives for disobedience or for perceived misconduct. A woman does not have the right to choose her husband, or her place of residence, to travel freely or have freedom in her choice of clothing. Women have little or no autonomy and are deemed to need the protection of their fathers, husbands or other male relatives throughout their lives. Any conduct that undermines the idea of male supremacy will fall foul of the Sharia."

No . . . it is a barbarous and anachronistic primitive abomination against God and humanity.

Benefits of the Sharia Law


Well......let's see........ I suspect that, if you are not a Muslim, you are not bound to follow it.

i look at it as the counter to the feminist bs we have in america that oppresses men. eventually it will come to america in some form because the current anti-male system is doomed to fail and a more male friendly system will be put into place. i mean feminism has lead to a situation ripe from destruction - masculizined women, low fertilty, feminized men. the church aint happening when the laws dont match religion as most of us are christian but the laws of the land are not christian especially those dealing with reproductive right, divorce and custody so a male backlash is bound to happen. i mean feminist think they can have their cake and eat it forever. feminist have less kids while patriarchial men have more so u can see who'se gonna win the demographic battle in the future and the feminist enviorment is making men insenstive to women problems. like if on hears a woman was getting beat by a man, one will have to say a lot of woman are challenging man or many woman put themselves in man's place and such be treated as such. this is equality, this is what men do to other men aka they compete and fight one another so either one is complementary or competition. so the future of america likely due to feminism is a a backlash of something like sharia law coming from within (conservative with high fertility) or from without (immigrants with high fertility). americans are being replaced daily.

No you are not , you know it's really interesting that in this country, long before the European ever came here, the native tribes treated the women with very high regard, the women were the ones that owned property, when a man married a woman, she did not become a member of his family, he became a member of her family. In many tribes women were the ones who determined who was to be the leader of the tribe, women were the ones who determine where the camps were going to be set up and in many cases when something of great importance came before the tribe, it went to the women's council first to be approved before going to the men's council and it still goes on today. Women are a very intricate part of the tribe and have a lot of authority.

Most world religions have had issues with women's rights. It's shameful what Islam does in that direction but it's certainly nothing new.

The more troubling thing about Sharia Law is that it creates a society in which everything that is not Islam is guaranteed to slowly fade into oblivion. Sharia Law is extremely intolerant of atheism for one thing, so don't expect to live long under Sharia Law if you deny the existence of God/Allah. It has built-in toleration for Christianity and Judaism and "people of the book" but the eventual extinction of Christianity and Judaism under Sharia Law is simply a matter of time.

Ultimately, the Muslim prophet and scriptures are very clear on one matter. Any man or woman who changes their religion from Islam to something else is to be put to death. So under Sharia Law, any Muslim converting to Christianity or Judaism is immediately eliminated. On the other hand, any Christian or Jew that converts to Islam will improve their status in society and most importantly they absolutely will survive. So with the door of conversion only going one way, it's just a matter of time till everything but Islam is wiped out.

Consider what has happened to the following nations that were once almost entirely Christian:
Libya is essentially 99.9% Muslim
Turkey is Muslim 99.8% Muslim
Algeria is 99% Muslim
Morocco is 98.7% Muslim and 1.1% Christian
93.5% of Egypt is Muslim and 6% are Christian. This represents the most significant case where Christianity has survived in significant numbers - and obviously they are vastly outnumbered.

If there are any Atheists or other religions they don't dare admit to it. If you value your right to choose your religion or choose to not have one, Sharia Law isn't something you'd like very much.

I don't feel "oppressed". And I fail to see a connection between women's rights in the USA and the highly objectionable Sharia Law in some Muslim countries. Overpopulation is at the root of the world's problems, so a low birth rate is a good thing.
