Anyway, Obama may want that family moved to the USA as refugees. That would make for interesting classroom situations in grade school.
You left out the Rastafarian who ate his own mother.

This is what happens in cultures that consider female humans to be property. This is one of the fundamental changes that Islam will have to make if they have any desire to be respected.

While not common, the primitive practice persists and is not limited to Muslim majority countries.
Perhaps it isn't. But that does not mitigate the practice. By the way, can you name some non-Muslim countries that practice this?

I didn't compare this man to Mr. Khan!!! Go back and read my post again!

You people try too hard to find something offensive in every post by those you disagree with. I think it must be caused by the same defect that makes one a Leftist. That's why the Left was offended when Trump mentioned that the woman (Mr. Khan's wife) wasn't allowed to speak (he was right).

What else did Trump say that was "offensive?" Noting that I can remember.

Trump says what most of the rest of America thinks and would love to have the opportunity to say publicly. That's why he's so popular. And that's why he WILL win.

Hillary is a liar, and she is one of the most offensive people ever to run for any political office, let alone President.

Mr. Khan is a Muslim Brotherhood operative, and the fact that he was invited to speak shows that Hillary is not on the side of America. The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization.

How can the US expect to " Americanize" Afghanistan? Why are we even trying? They don't and never will accept it. It's as alien as another planet to them. And yes, bringing them here is asdaffy as an outhouse rat.

I didn't know we were "importing" Afghans into our country.

Absolutely, positively FALSE! What are you reading? Have you ever read the Bible? No such view of women can be found in the Bible. Just the opposite.

Tell us what cultures you are talking about. I'm betting they were a small minority. However in Islam, women are not even considered human. That is a fact. I know of no other religion or culture that has such a low view of women.

Really? This from Deuteronomy:

Quote:
If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels
of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.
That's how god values women?
