Great post GrandpaSmurf, but that animal is all for marrying off young girls to old men, because it "helps their family financially". Sounds just like prostitution. For sure there is no love involved.

WOW! It looks like he didn't get any valentine's day cards in grammar school.

No wonder he doesn't like Valentine's Day!

Patriarchal hierarchical religions close off the LOVE that we are born with and replace it with something called conditional love.

To him it seems perfectly reasonable. LOVE is thought to have no importance or at best to happen after marriage. And the female is mere chattel given little consideration as a human being and sometimes none at all.

But we are evolving

have a good evening!

It seems you had parental problems if you needed to be loved by others at such a young age.
A couple of days ago, you were advocated six year old girls marrying middle aged men.

In fact, many Nigerian women come into the country for Hajj but end up looking for work, often falling into the prostitution racket.

You bring up a valid point. But try to consider what Valentine's day is to a child.
I remember in grammar school as a small child getting valentine's cards from girls I was much to shy to approach. How delighted I was to know others cared about me!
It helped me to learn a lot about LOVE. And it helped me to feel LOVABLE!
Take away the greed of the capitalist system and That's all valentine's day is about, LOVE.
There is no love in Islam

Nothing wrong with loving others. Islam of course thinks there is everything wrong in love full stop.

I think Valentines Day is a great way to teach children to give to others- and something so simple as a few words of kindness to show that you care about others.

Valentines Day is about love and caring. I read on here how to them it signifies a woman being a slut because she wants attention from a man. Now if a woman showing her elbow gets them excited- can you imagine what a windy day might do.

I don't think he's a Muslim, but just a leftist weirdo.
