Welcome to Home of Apostates!

Everyone has the right to abandon his/her religion without being persecuted or discriminated. We fight against the persecution of apostates. We stand up against religious discrimination and intolerance. It is a long way ahead but there will be a day that apostates will be able to live safely all around the world in peace and harmony with other people.

I guess those ideas could spread to this country. If the beauty and intelligence of the Golden Age of Islam could be so terribly annihilated, it could happen any where.
Surely there were protesters when the changes occurred, but religious faith was so strong, it crushed any resistance.

As someone famous once said, I am a protestant, too, in the sense that I protest.

James, I, personally am not a recovering catholic, but I do descend  from a mixture of Puritan stock from 1632, Roman Catholic who emigrated about 1900, a Free Methodist, and a Presbyterian. Though my parents were not active church goers, they still held on to the old beliefs about women and children, and the responsibility of man to have control over them. Obedience was a high value, as was very hard work. The net result was the usual dysfunction in families who came through the Great Depression and WW II moving out of the old traditions but not yet ready to take on such heresies as a woman capable of thinking for her own benefit, and that women and children who would not submit to patriarchy were not worth their salt.

Brian, your generalization about American women has at least one exception that I know of: my wife.  She has remained as devoted and interested in me while I have been unemployed as I was when I made high-five-figures a year, perhaps more so.  Indeed, I could name several other women I have known whose attitudes are remarkably similar.  If the women you are hanging with are only interested in your wallet, You're Hanging With The WRONG WOMEN!!!

Oh, lordy, ms Kalliope, that stuff sounds positively medieval.  That is what we are experiencing all over the globe today, a kind of selfish medieval thing; might as well call the New Feudalism.  This is the America envisioned by the 2% who use religious dogma in a Senecan manner (cynical?), proscribing birth control and attacking organizations that further the cause of poor peoples' rights to their own bodies. I feel sorry for women born in such countries: they start at the bottom of the totem pole and are given the freedom to nothing from birth until death.  In such hopelessness, I would take hemlock and be done with it.

My question: how far off is a woman's will to marry from the financial benefit seen by her parents? Women in America are incapable of loving a man for anything other than his money. Money is the only thing that's not negotiable. So if the woman's parents always chose the rich guy, and an American woman by her own will always chooses the rich guy, how fundamentally different are we than the oppressive Hindu and Muslim societies when everything is boiled down?

Ah, OK, Joan.  I get it I think.  I forget, are you a recovering Catholic?

Comment by James M. Martin on November 24, 2012 at 8:49

Wow.  That makes me proud of American family law.  Then, again, who knows; in some states I would think there's no prohibition of marrying at six, but only with parental permission. I gather most Muslim marriages are arranged?

Pat, I think Sam Harris had it first, if only in a footnote.

I like the late Christopher Hitchen's take on the whole "72 virgins" thing. Be careful what you wish for, because part of the package is 72 mothers-in-law.
