This is the url of what started the inbox. You are a liar:http://board.okayplayer.com/okp.php?az=show_topic&forum=4&topic_id=141498

No it wasn't. We weren't having an argument. I just noticed you saying shit, and I said that there are Christians doing the same thing. It's in the "Post like an activist on Religion" post in GD if you don't remember. Check it out. My argument with YOU, not with anyone else was that Islam doesn't encourage misogny, and in fact supports women- that it was cultural norms in practice and not Islam in question here.

nowhere in the bible does it
>say kill or "severely punish" those who do not worship as us,
>it doesn't say anywhere to oppress women either.

You don't know anything about Islam at all do you? I would not attack the Bible because we believe in the Bible as well. We believe in all the same prophets, and we even believe that Jesus is the Messiah. You are baiting me into finding fault with the Bible. I'm not getting into that.

and it
>doesn't condone/or promote abortion at all...and saying that
>shedding light on the plight of muslim women and bringing
>Ayaan Hirsi Ali's story to the boards is not attacking islam.
>and for you to suggest that it says alot about YOU...

Does it? I'm not in a position to debate Qu'ran and Sunnah with you. I'm not a scholar in that regard. I could however debate Bible with you, and since we Muslims use the Bible as a guide, we can do that. But I'm not gonna sully the Bible here.

WHAT are you talking about? My inbox was in repsonse to the post in GD. Are you LYING on me? You are talking about the Bible, and you are LYING? Why would you lie? What made this argument so important that you had to LIE?

>>And that was the crux of it. He said I was crazy for making

And they won't. But you never asked why.

but what you HAVE
>done is point the finger @ christianity....seems to me that
>you KNOW these things are wrong to do to women, but instead of
>saying that, you say "look at christianity!!"...well when you
>do that you basically answer the question of whether or not
>you think these women indeed are oppressed. thanks.

I would NEVER attack Christianity. I would only attack the actions of those practicing it. My entire family is comprised of Christians. I am marrying a Christian woman next month, why would I do that when I could easily marry a muslimah if I didn't respect her religion and her ability to raise our children? Come on now. You've mastered this victim thing. stop that.

Being for the upliftment of black people does not in any way equate with the Black power movement of the 70's. Please compare apples with apples.

No, I'm arguing that my approach is different. VERY different.

HUH? None of that was my argument at ALL. You are doing this for fun aren't you? You can't possibly be serious. You READ what I had to say, and as that is what you extracted from it?

Oh. Well, state the obvious.
