Quote from: Blackleaf on September 22, 2019, 05:36:02 PMChristianity is right about women. So, Munch, are you "triggered?" Clearly, this statement has you trapped in a situation where you have to choose between treating Christians with basic human dignity or accepting that women are not entitled to equal treatment under the law. There is no third option that could ever possibly be conceived. Your brain must be tearing itself apart with such incredible cognitive dissonance!
Quote from: Munch on September 22, 2019, 10:07:28 PMnow that was a pretty weak attempt, since I look at Christianity the same way I do Islam, a mass cult. Is it my fault you can't separate the cult of islam from the people in that part of the world?

Quote from: Blackleaf on September 23, 2019, 01:05:41 AMPutting aside the hypocrisy of constantly complaining about "outrage culture" while raging about movie characters changing race or gender, and the assumption that the easily offended blue haired college students represent all Leftists, the statement in the OP is fundamentally flawed for a number of reasons.
QuoteIslam is right? Which version of Islam? There are multiple sects of Islam, just like in Christianity. Muslims are not some homogeneous group that all think the same. Some may interpret their holy texts differently. Some may believe things that are not mentioned in their texts or are outright contradictory to their texts. So when you say Islam is right about women, which version of Islam, and what are they right about?
QuoteIf you ask a Christian of they believe women are equal to men, most would probably say yes. But if you ask them if the wife has equal authority as the husband, or if women can be pastors, then you find that many of them don't really believe in equality like they say they do. Some do believe in true equality, in spite of their scriptures, but other Christians use politics to limit women's rights according to their interpretations of scripture. If I said that Christianity was right about women, which Christians would I be talking about? Catholics? Lutherans? Southern Baptists?
QuoteLet me help you with something, Munch. If you see Leftists coming to the defense of Muslims, it is almost certainly not because they condone those Muslims' beliefs, or the actions taken by those who hold those beliefs. It's because they see one religion, which has a near complete control of the government, bullying people of a smaller religious group. Unlike Conservatives, who think that "religious freedom" means that they (and they alone) can impose their religion on everyone else, Liberals believe in real religious freedom. That includes the right for Muslims to practice their own religion, as long as they don't harm others or impede the rights of others.
QuoteIf you want to criticize Islam, then fine. There is a lot to criticize, although my knowledge of the religion is much more limited than with Christianity, so there's not much I can say about it. But enough of this bullshit anti-SJW propaganda from people who don't know and don't want to know what they're talking about.
