Aren't you being a hypocrite by your willingness to submit to wearing a burka/hijab (in Kuwait) but railing against people of faith and values on this forum? If anything Muslims are more demanding than Christians not less; but you don't seem to have the same problem with them.
You enjoy the benefits of freedom that come from a Christian based nation but promote Islam by your professed willingness to wear the burka / hijab (and at the same time call yourself a feminist).
If you lived under Islam majority rule I seriously doubt you would be so zealous for Islam.
Well, there's being a hypocrite and then there's being a liar, like you.

I've never made any statements saying I would submit to wearing either of those items of clothing. So, you lied there.

On this forum, I point out that there are inciting passages in both religious books. Both the bible and the koran have contradicting text. Both are used to justify actions of violence. What you believe in, that's your business. But don't go around making it seem like your religion is better just because some crazy people take their religion out of context. And furthermore, don't say all Muslims are bad because of the actions of those extremists.

I absolutely have problems with fundamentalist Muslims. I also have problems with fundamentalist Christians who blow up abortion clinics or refuse to get their own children medical attention because they believe they can "pray" the illness away.

We've been round and round about this. This is not a Christian-based nation. The founding fathers made it very clear that religion should have no dictating force in the government.

So, you're a liar because pretty much all of the information you stated about me is a lie, unfounded and your own projection. Unless you can learn to tell the truth, interacting with you is pointless because I don't believe in man-made fairy tales such as the one you're spinning.

Of course you'd say that. Wouldn't have it any other way. People go to the interpretation copout when faced with the fact that they are not who their god wants them to be.
Ain't it the truth? It works like this. When judging someone else it's, "The Bible says..." and that person is a sinner. When judging themselves it's, "Well you have to take it in context and the words aren't meant to be taken literally you know and depending on the translation..."

So then you're telling us to take the Bible literally. That makes you a fundamentalist Christian, dear. You must be awfully confused.

The judgment Christians are to refrain from is judgment concerning the eternal fate of anyone. Leave intentions, motives, and final worth to God. We are not to confuse the judgment of the actions of people with sitting in judgment over them as to their eternal fate. But reluctance to make judgments concerning sinful acts is to produce that type of paralysis and inactivity that has brought both contemporary society and American Catholics to their present plight.

I have sinned by assigning Ted Kennedy to the ninth circle. I never gave Guy much thought on the subject.

No, no, no darling. If I were advising you on the bible, I'd tell you not to adhere to anything within. I am merely pointing out the convenience that some verses should be taken literally, and some are up for interpretation (by man, who is fallible). Even if you did not take the bible literally and only used it to suggest how you live your life, you would still be a loving, helpful, forgiving, understanding person.

Sorry, lady...you said to take it literally. There must be a war going on inside your head.
