I put a blog post up because of a need to post a link to a site and a discussion by some very well informed and qualified people but was kindly informed by another Nexian (?), that blog posts are more personal and the link could disappear very quickly off the main page. So this is a bit of a re-post.
Having been brought up by Catholics with all the incest, peadophilia, rape other sexual misdemeanours, sexual repression, emotional and intellectual repression that reresents i found a link at the Jihad Watch site that seriously examines the mindset of the Islamics. However this, i feel is a mindset applicable to all theistic groups be they mainstream or more 'sectist' in character.
Our society is in a phase where if one posits any opinion or belief it IS going to be examined as is the society/grouping they claim to represent. In examining mindset of fundementalism i think it has a lesson for us all especially as a rise in religious fervour on either side has a concommitant effect on the opposite side. Just what the mono-theists desire.
When one thinks of the Christian Brotherhood and Sisters of Mercy in Ireland and direct involvement of government not in just covering up but, i feel, in many cases, direct involvement. Are we closer to the mindset of the prosytilisers of Sharia ie: religous law than we think.
Also whilst speaking of Ireland in concentrating on the sexual aspects of the case, although it is still ever present, some young women were incarcerated in the Magdelena Laundries for being too pretty and they were looked upon as too much of a temptation for men, why is that not analogous with the Muslim mindset! Those young women were also kept there, in most cases all there lives in conditions akin to Nazi slave labour camps. Anyway here's the link.
Cannot get the link to paste in the forum. It's on the blog i posted but can't get it to paste here. The link takes you to frontpagemag.com and the piece is entitled 'Symposium: The rape of unveiled women'.
