    Britain's Islam Channel Censored After Condoning Marital Rape, Violence Toward Women

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/1...nsored-condoning-marital-rape-violence-women/

    "The U.K. Daily Mail reports that in one program, the host told viewers that it was “not strange” and “not such a big problem” for a man to force his wife to have sex."

    During the program, the presenter stated: “In Islam we have no right to hit the woman in a way that damages her eye or damages her tooth or damages her face or makes her ugly. Maximum what you can do, you can see the pen over here, in my hand, this kind of stick can be used just to make her feel that you are not happy with her,” U.K. Daily Mail reports.


    seems like a peaceful religion.:rolleyes:

    We've discussed this before, BTW. I am no fan of religion.

    Yeah well the Bible condones stoning guys with long hair (... ... Jesus?) so I guess that whole religion is hateful as well.

    I also suggest reading the original piece in the Daily Mail.

    And also something I'm sure Fox News highlighted in their report:

    Fox News quoting the Daily Mail. Talk about echo chamber...

    It's been said, but really? Fox News reposting the Daily Mail?


    Now if you'll all excuse me I must go beat off my wife with a pen.

    Are there any religions where some of its followers aren't racist/homophobic/xenophobic/tridecaphobic?

    I'd take what the Daily Mail says with a fistful of salt though.

    It's good to see dina railing against misogyny after his rape accusations thread the other day… or is it only wrong when it's done by Muslims?

    I'm sure you read that wrong. It reads "Guys with long hair get stoned."

    Why does din start a thread, but rarely actually engage in the discussion? :confused:

    Don't u think there is a difference between the two. One is a book written thousands of years ago, the other is an opinion of people living today, in more civilized times. I'm much more Worried about the group who still proclaims this to be ok then the one who probably doesn't even realize all the bad advice that their holy book has in it.

    Thats just great. Lets spread our ******** religion to societies that can't handle it and that's what happens. How about the only thing we teach developing nations is how to grow food and stuff like that. Let our fantasy world die out quickly and end this crap.

    This seems deliberately inflammatory. Any accounts of the prophet's lifetime are always going to be questionable but there is clear evidence of paedophilia amongst recent and current members of the catholic church.

    I appreciate that this is the PSRI forum, but does that mean anyone can write whatever nonsense they like?

    ^^^ haha, yeah for sure!

    You'd be surprised...

    Anyway, this type of behavior should be condemned. What I don't understand is why it must be followed with "but but christians are just as bad!" remarks.
    If this was a thread comparing the two religions pros and cons-- sure. But for some reason no one can pass judgement on extreme parts of Islam without trying to align fringe parts of christianity with it, i.e. witch children in africa.

    So you think someone should be able to post a loaded question implying that Christianity is superior to Islam because it doesn't treat people like **** for nonsense reasons, and not have anyone pull them up on that? Religions are all full of ******** people peddling ******** for ******** reasons. They are as bad as each other.

    I'm no fan of Islam, but I'm even less a fan of blind ignorance left unchallenged. Blue's post has it right.

    I didn't see any clear implication in the OP where christianity is superior to Islam, only the tired axiom that "Islam is a peaceful religion". Its that very knee-jerk reaction that I'm talking about.

    I know. Thats a reaction to this comment:

    I'm not sure if the bible condones stoning for men with long hair. If I remember correctly it was Paul's specific advice for the people in Corinth.
