i'm still reading your reply, but having read a good portion of the koran, i've noticed it is more receptive to women's equality than the bible.

there are many muslim men twisting the faith for their own purposes, just as there are christian men who use the bible to suit themselves & justify their cruelty to their women.

imo, any faith that doesn't *specifically* recognize and appreciate the feminine aspects of the DIVINE (not just earthly women) will have these problems--but that's just my 2 cents.

i wanna channel words like
whoopi channeled ghosts
break nouns, verbs and concepts
like mongolian equestrians
break horses
and ride across mental deserts
with deceptively easy beauty
