  • So you ladies above are okay with a religion that condones a man almost beating his wife to death because she wanted to be more "western." You are okay with him preaching how peaceful his faith is and then spouting words from his holy book while beating his wife............ya'll are sick.

  • Um, I read the story. I still don't understand the question. I do understand why you posted such an inflammatory question under anon, though. So your assertion is that this guy beat his wife because of Islam, or because he is Muslim. Well, you are full of it. How many women get beat under the guise of Christianity, or with no relation to religion at all? Troll.

  • Not according to the Muslims I know and I'll trust them over anon internet trolls. It's my understanding that such actions are NOT supported by the Q'uran.

  • If you're really wanting a better understanding I suggest you take the time to educate yourself on Islam, its tenants, teachings, and history. And from unbiased, reliable sources, not anything that takes surahs from the Quran out of context. Actually talk to some Muslims - there are many lovely Muslimahs right here on CM.

    Perpetuating ignorance and prejudice under the guise of understanding doesn't cut it, though.
