Greetings Natty Bob,
very interesting reasoning but there are two sides to all.
I was brought up within a christian society and I saw the same things you say about the muslim.
I saw priest getting drunk on a regular bases, I know of a priest who rented gay and porno videos. I know of a priest who have abused family friends and young children.
I have been threatend with physical harm by a church, its priest and followers.
I know of church people who have killed there own children because they thought they were possessed without thinking that maybe it was puberty.
These are only a few things of hundreds I have seen while being involved within a christian lifestyle and many things I still see today from people I know who claim to be followers of Christ and then go on to say that its fine because there Jesus died for there sins so they are saved anyway.
This sort of foolishness is within every religion in the world even within the RASTA movement.
One thing I have learnt is that many so-called muslim do not know too much about there prophet as many so called Christian do not know to much about Christ.
There is alot of hate within western society for muslims and arabs and much of it is because of peoples ignorance to the actual faith. I live in Australia and I am not sure if you know what is going on here at the movement in reagrds to refuges but one thing I can say is that this is a very Racist country and government who very much have a dislike for muslims and Arabs even tho they call themselves a multi-culture country.
90 %of my friends dislike arabs and much of this is lack of knowledge towards there faith and culture.
On the matter of women being oppressed. Does not the Christian oppress women? Very much so!!!!!!!
Even within the RASTA movement we still have RASTA who oppress women.
Does not the Christian enslave? Very much so!!!!!
See there are two sides to every story and we should educate with just one eye.
RASpect and JAH blessings
