And they ask you about menstruation. Say: It is a discomfort; therefore keep aloof from the women during the menstrual discharge and do not go near them until they have become clean; then when they have cleansed themselves, go in to them as Allah has commanded you; surely Allah loves those who turn much (to Him), and He loves those who purify themselves.
Yo, I can appreciate this post now.

Anything about menstrual cycles works me up

Long live menstrual cycles.

Any info on PMS

No surprise, backward religion started by backward man preaches backward information regarding women, the source of their greatest fears and misconceptions.

Long live ignorance.

Would it REALLY hurt the world's weirdest faiths to wake the heck up and join the 21st century? Really?

Default The offence of the cross.

Allah is every bit as real as the god of Roman Catholics.

Sorry, gods of Roman Catholics.

And for the same reason.

I am sure you are misunderstanding the interpretation of the verse.

To any with a knowledge of the Old Testament/Tanakh, this passage looks very much like a re-write of a Levitical code, which in the 7th century still aplied to Jews, but not to Christians. It could be said to have the double function of giving a semblance of authentic faith, while being in contradiction of the teaching of justification by faith- and no other function at all.

If god/allah/krishna is omnipresent, why would words like "near" or "far" even apply?

Default IS allah near or far

Contingent on who Allah is makes this question difficult by way of definition. Firstly, the pagan component must be eliminated from
the equation (this is not so simple) as many Muslims unknowingly and unwittingly praise the moon God allah via their traditional diety
worship. They share nearly the same pagan worship that we see in Catholicism wherby mediators have been worshipped for centuries
ie,saints,Mary (mother of Jesus) and indulgences etc. Anyway,as a christian I focus on Allah as Arabic for God. We christians believe in the God of Abraham. One God with three distinct manifestations (some say roles played out for our understanding and salvation) The bottomline is that it is a mystery to "man" how God remains one yet has a plurality. I persanally have never had issues with this and find it well within Gods makeup or ability.
Allah then is both near and far omnipresent yet we relate to heaven as a distance of sorts. His spirit dewells within us (one of the three
manifestations some religion say persons. Jesus is the ONLY mediator to God. For those who don't get that Jesus Christ is the only way to God. No intercessory prayers to anyone, anything; any nice dead person or monument!! We tend to drive Muslims nuts with all our religious terms which take them way off track and
religion then has little credibility with all its foolish non biblical garbage. Religion for all it's good smells of widespread doctrinal error and
silly practices. A direct relationship with God and His word is the course to follow all else is moot.

Say: O My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

Slaves. Well, that definitely puts Islam on my "Never In a Million Years Will I Convert" list.
