Really?

Is this that sort of morality, violence against innocent people, burning houses of innocent people?

"On Friday, a rowdy and angry crowd of the ‘faithful’ gathered after being told of allegedly blasphemous remarks passed by a resident of Joseph Colony in the Badami Bagh area. The accuser led the mob of some 2,000 people to the man’s house and, upon not finding him, they spread their terror throughout the neighbourhood, forcing all the residents, particularly women and children, to flee. They did find the accused’s father and brutally beat him up....."

Religion is divisive.
Religion leads to immorality.

Whew!

Atheists find Islam, Judaism, and Christianity equally without merit in the 21st century.

We are truly equal opportunity God skeptics.

What a bunch of bulal, wow he he waited until she was 12. That still makes him a pervert. If he were a god , the morality of today would be the same as it was then.

<quoted text>There are many ways, but I feel that you aren't really interested. Like most western people, you want to confuse cultural problems with religious dictates. Used correctly, Islam seeks to empower and liberate women, not oppress them.
Many religions have empowering edicts in them and many have truly immoral and downright sick edicts as well. Islam is no different.They are products of ancient people uneducated about the natural world.
