rabbee: the true laws from G-D, does not require any of you new testament social enhancements from the subtle beast of the fields.<quoted text>
Personal choice is "If you want to join Islam"?
The entry is voluntary.
But once you join, there are rules and regulations. And none of them benefit the God and Creator of Universe. They are all for the benefit of humankind and develop their personality and bring them closer to their Creator.
None of the rules hinder progress and development of human society, but they are based on morality and fair play and justice.
If you want to call that a totalitarian way of life, you can. But show me any society that does not have laws and regulations and "forces" its members to follow them.
It does not matter if the laws were made 1400 years ago or 2500 years ago, we should check their reasonability and their effectiveness.
Why to let go any rule which is good for the human society and helps in its moral development, just because it is "1400 years old"?
This is not a reasonable approach, is it?
TheLaw of G-D, does not ever change, no matter how mentally socially screwed up you all are today all against them.
the laws of any organization or nation, should not be any different than any other organization or nation. if they are, then you have a personal problem supporting any of them. inconsistency in the law, wreaks of demonic possession.
