Re: Sharia Judge Says It Is OK for Husbands to Slap spendthrift Wives.Jul 16th, 2009
I did not say they were forced to wear veils, Machjo, I said they were brainwashed in to wearing veils. And of course they would take offense to that, who is going to admit that they have been the subject of brainwashing?
But women in the Islamic society are brainwashed from birth to accept their inferior station in the society. So wearing a veil comes naturally to them. Indeed, it wouldnít surprise me if they look upon women who donít wear veils as prostitutes.
To be fair though, I am aware that there are women raised in Muslim households who are pressured into wearing the veil.
Again, it isnít a question of pressuring, it is a question of brainwashing. Many times the women voluntarily wear the veil, that is how they have been conditioned from the birth.
I think that those who wear the Hajab are comfortable in it and those who wear a full Burka covering are comfortable doing so. What people wear isn't important other than it makes them comfortable to do so. It's when people are taught to hate based on tradition or religion that the big problems arise.
Look at our own Western concepts, blue for boys, pink for girls. Boys like trucks and sports, girls like dolls and high romance. Do we brainwash and is it a negative thing? Sure but it's part of tradition but it's not really a bad thing in the end. If someone wants to walk around in the sheets it's okay with me. If they want to make a club so that other sports fans can gather to observe that religion called the playoffs, more power to them.
All Islam really needs is a good dose of what was taught and is taught to Christians over here through the ages. Simply, "Don't shove you're religion in my face." In time, we'll get along just fine.
