Put yourself in the shoes of a young girl living in Afghanistan. Under the Taliban she was forbidden to get an education but now young girls are attending school.
Also considering the fact that under the Taliban no one could:
fly a kite
criticize Islam, Muhammad, or Sharia
kiss in public
possess a bible
I think it's safe to assume
that the average Afghan is happier today than when under the crushing thumb of the Taliban, especially if you're just an innocent kid who only wants to play soccer!
How are those words different today from what they were when they were penned??? How is that "evidence"???
As Mowich pointed out, they're not. That's the problem!
Things have gotten totally out of whack.......and it appears that people have been frightened to an irrational extreme by what has always been a extremist belief system.
Tell that to the Christians in Lebanon, Niger or Egypt. Tell that to the Buddhists in Thailand. Tell that to the Hindus in India. Tell that to the people of Iraq. Tell that to the people of Israel.
The difference is that people of this belief system are now the target for every negative thing that has happened.
Then why don't the "moderate" Muslims speak out against the references in the Quran to killing and the constant violence perpetrated by their fellow followers?
Personally, I find ALL religions a form of psychosis.
Personally, I find secularism a form of psychosis.
