You mean like by not telling them they suck, or trying to make them feel there religion is a second hand spin off? Stuff like that?

Do you wear a burqa or chadri when possibly in the presence of people that may be Muslim?

Or are you an unloving person?

Do you disagree with the biblical passage that has become a popular maxim;
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
(Matthew 7:12)?
Reads pretty darn clear to me.
My agreement or disagreement with God's commandments is irrelevant is it not? God does not care whether I agree or disagree. He expects obedience, not agreement.

I obey that commandment up until it violates the 2nd NT commandment. When both cannot be followed simultaneously, then the 2nd NT commandment takes precedent IMO. My comment was in regard to when the two commandments are in conflict. In our culturally diverse world, these two are in conflict on a greater scale than ever before.

God bless you and yours.

It may seem an irrelevant point to you.
But God demands not only your agreement with His commandments but also your obedience.

You just contradicted your for first statement on agreement and obedience.

So you conveniently pick and choose what part of God's word you follow, like a "cafeteria christian"?

There is no conflict in God's words, only in mankind's acquiescence.

Men are not required by Muslims to wear a burqa or chadri.

But as a woman, YOU are if you are going to treat others in a way that would not be insulting to them or their beliefs/culture.

Think before you speak, especially when you are trying to reinterpret God's word.

Advise you should eagerly take yourself.

You don't hold a monopoly on interpretation of scripture.

You said "But God demands not only your agreement with His commandments but also your obedience."

Actually:

The Ten Commandments are often cited as examples of the natural law. Christians are obliged to follow the laws cited in the Ten Commandments not because they are cited in the Ten Commandments—part of Old Testament law—but because they are part of the natural law—for the most part.

Certainly we can know by reason alone that certain actions are immoral—e.g., to kill the innocent, to take what does not belong to us, to cheat on our spouses, etc.

Similarly, we can know by reason alone that we are obliged to worship our Creator.

I don't buy your explanation here.

I am not reinterpreting anything.

Well Big Al, Voltaire should be quoted in context.
I mean, just because someone professes to follow God doesn't mean they are incapable of being wrong. The Bible is full of stories about God's people sinning.
Voltaire was a deist who criticized contemporary Christianity and often religion in general.
But your 'cherry-picked' quote has nothing to do with the Truth of Christianity and everything to do with the Lie of Mohammed.
In his seminal 'Philosophical Dictionary,' labeled "Reason," Voltaire sharply criticizes Islam:
"Your religion, although it has some good points, such as worship of the great Being, and the necessity of being just and charitable, is otherwise nothing but a rehash of Judaism and a tedious collection of fairy tales.
If the archangel Gabriel had brought the leaves of the Koran to Mahomet from some planet, all Arabia would have seen Gabriel come down : nobody saw him; therefore Mahomet was a brazen impostor who deceived imbeciles."

Voltaire's quote has to do with the consequences of people (Muslim or Christian) believing that they know what "God" wants and that nothing else matters except what they believe "God" wants.
