A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
Thank you for your concern. I will take the time to answer your question. But I strongly suggest that you do not put words in my mouth. People like yourself who are happily doing what they feel like are not the people “I’m trying to save”, I am here to help those who are oppressed and never cared for because people such as yourself live in denial and assume Islam is perfect and deserves respect.
You are right, you have your own mind to think and that is what I want everyone to do! But what a Muslim woman decides to do based on her own philosophies, views, and reflections on life is not exactly what the Quran and the Hadiths say. Chances are you probably have not even read all the Hadiths or the Quran, though I stand to be corrected.
Apparently I am very ignorant to you for having devoted a big portion of my life to studying the religion out of personal interest, for having lived and travelled in Muslim countries, and for deciding to share my experience from it all.
The amount of sexism and misogyny in the Quran and the Hadith is endless, but I can focus on a few parts just to clarify why I say Islam hates women. If you and your Muslim friends are happy doing exactly what you like, ignoring the endless amount of pain and suffering that takes place around the world precisely because of passages from the Quran and the Hadith, then that means you are living in denial, it certainly does not make Islam good by any means.
As you are aware, Muslims are told that Muhammad’s ways in life should be the standard for all good Muslims!
The Islamic Hadith states that Aisha was married to Muhammad at the age of 6, and the marriage was consummated when she was 9, while Muhammad was 53, in Medina. All the Hadiths agree on this, with the exception of al-Tabari, which states that she was 10 at the time, like that makes a difference!
Reference from the Hadith: Sahih Bukhari Book 58, Number 236 states, “Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.”
Many Muslims who deny the authenticity of this Hadith, even though it recorded in all Islamic teachings, keep in mind that the rest of this book contains the material that defines the religion of Islam, and this is why both of my grandmothers were married to men in their 30s when they hadn’t even reached the age of 13. Not only that, but the Hadiths go on to say how Female Genital Mutilation, although not an Islamic practice, took place well prior to Islam and instead of having a law that cared for little girls Muhammad basically gave instructions on how to carry out this despicable act (Abu Dawood 41:5251). Do you know how many poor girls suffer in this world precisely because of these Islamic rulings?
But some “moderate” apologists argue that the Hadith should not be considered; only the Quran applies, even though the religion of Islam exists because of the Hadith since it contains many laws and customs that make up the religion. It’s sort of like the pathetic Christian argument that the Old Testament doesn’t apply even though without the Old Testament their entire religion ceases to exist. Regardless, the Quran has its own fair share of hatred and disrespect for women. When you read the Quran, Allah is constantly speaking to MEN, telling MEN how to treat WOMEN, how to handle women, and even instructions on how to beat women. Women are not the focus; they are well below men or even worse they are just objects. This is really no different than the Bible. In the Quran Allah considers women to be like a dirty field and says men should come forward with their penises to plow the field. It even says that your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you. This goes beyond objectifying women, it’s absolutely sickening to think of women this way, like they’re tools that god created for pleasing men. Reference for this: Quran 2:223.
But that’s not where it ends, the Quran tells us that men are a degree higher than women, and in cases of divorce the husband has more rights to take them back (Reference for this: Quran 2:228). And who can forget the justification of polygamy, which is only for men of course. Men can have up to 4 wives, but what about women? Well from an Islamic point of view, that doesn’t really matter (Reference for this: Quran 4:3)
Well what about inheritance, maybe the Quran will give women a break here, but no as the Quran tells us men inherit twice that of females. Allah seems to think of men as being better and more important than women; if he hadn’t made it clear by now he also wants to make sure we know that men are twice as important when it comes to inheritance (Reference for this: Quran 4:11). And well what about illegal sexual activities, surely women and men should be equal when it comes to being punished for an imaginary crime like this, but no, the punishment of life in house confinement is only for women (Reference for this: Quran 4:15). As you read through the Quran you notice more and more that women are like objects in Islam and the Quran tells us that if you get tired of one there are instructions on how to replace her (Reference for this: Quran 4:20). There is absolutely no question about it, in the Quran we are told that men are in charge of women and they can beat women if the woman does not obey them (Reference for this: Quran 4:34). But what about the poor women, what if their husbands disobey them? Well nothing has been said in the Quran about this because clearly from Islamic point of view that does not matter!
If it was not clear enough the Quran reiterates again and again that a male receives twice the share of females (Reference for this: Quran 4:176)
We can go further into the whole concept of hijab, and how the Quran says Muslim women must reduce their vision and cover themselves (Reference for this: Quran 24:31, Quran 33:59). But of course this is because men can’t control themselves, what about women? Don’t they have a sex drive as well? Not according to Islam if you read the Quran carefully. If instructions for divorcing your wife were not bad enough, the Quran also gives instructions on how to divorce the kids you married, which ties into the Hadith about Muhammad marrying Aisha when she was only 6. This is a passage discussing how a man should divorce the woman he no longer wants, then it just starts talking about cases where the wife has not reached puberty yet. (Reference for this: Quran 65:4)
I haven’t even talked about how women have been treated in Muslim countries; I’ve only discussed the actual religion. I could go on and on. I am in regular contact with dozens of ex-Muslim or agnostic Muslim women who are still feeling the harsh aftermath of the oppression of Islam in their lives. I am here for them and millions more like them, not someone like yourself who arrogantly wants to deny all that is wrong with Islam!

Just want to reiterate that many of these quotes are literally in the Quran. It states that men are above women because Allah has made it so, and good women are those who obey. The Quran states a man may beat his wife when she is disobedient.
'Moderate' religious people do not show their religion can produce good people as well. They show that with less religion they become better people; it was renouncing parts of their religion that allowed them to be better people. It only serves to prove further that these religions are sickening and deeply discriminatory.

I’m only going to address the statistics you’ve specified in this post, even though most of the other statistics in your links are way the fuck off as well.
Women actually make up 40% of rapists. It’s impossible to address this issue while feminist propaganda asserts that rape is a women’s issue, while society mostly couldn’t give a shit, and while the law doesn’t recognize forced envelopment as rape. 60% of daycare molestation is committed by women, 42% of sexual misconduct in juvenile facilities is committed by women, 22% of childhood sexual abuse is committed by females, 23% by both male & female (that’s 45% committed by females), 43% of student sexual abuse is committed by females. 59% of rapists have been heterosexually molested between the ages of 4 and 16. Men are not more likely to sexually abuse anyone, and to assume so only continues to produce more rapists.
Women make less than men due to personal choices and hours worked. This is not oppression, it’s a privilege that they have more freedom to choose safer jobs and more flexible hours.
You can’t possibly expect anyone to trust the Department of “Justice” when the Federal Government, under feminist pressure, still pays grants to police departments in proportion to the number of men jailed under VAWA legislation, leading to an incentive for police to expand the defintion of ‘domestic violence’ to absurd extremes, and when a man who calls the police to report domestic violence, he is three times more likely to be arrested than the woman who is abusing him. Women actually commit half of all partner violence and are just as controlling as men. Almost one out of four relationships are violent, half of which is reciprocal, with women as the perpetrators in 70% of nonreciprocal violence. The same research which is used to say that a woman is severely assaulted by her husband/boyfriend every 15 second in this country, also indicated that a man is severely assaulted by his wife/girlfriend every 14.6 seconds. Women are more likely than men to “stalk, attack and abuse” their partners (also here). While men are less likely to report violence, which distorts crime data. Virtually all randomized sociological surveys show women initiate domestic violence as often as men and use weapons more than men, that men suffer one-third of injuries, and that self-defense explains only a small portion of domestic violence by either sex.
Considering that the majority of your statistics come from the Department of “Justice”, which seems to have a theme of not convicting women of the same crimes as men, I’m going to assume that your murder statistics have the same issue until the DOJ decides to pull its head out of its gender-biased ass and proves it really means to do society any real justice.
Both you and the OP are part of the problem. Both men and women have privileges and disadvantages, often to equal degrees. None of you are fixing anything by playing oppression Olympics.
sylvanas doing a little maintenance
Just flat out putting this out there right now for people who keep associating me with truscum who think demiboys and demigirls and people who are bigender are a thing - I believe the brain can be female, male, or possibly somewhere in between, a term known on tumblr as…
Fuck political correctness. Fuck it. Fuck it in the ass without lube.
I’m so sick of censoring myself. If it’s not in one direction, it’s another.
Fuck caring about what’s offensive and what’s a slur. I just don’t give a fuck anymore.
You know what, fuck trigger warnings. And if you think for one second there aren’t things that break me down, make me curl up in a ball, dissociate, want to kill myself, and damn near make me hallucinate, think again. If you don’t think that there are things that have sent me into the depths of depression enough to make me lose it and start slicing away at my own flesh, well guess what, there are. And you know what? It hasn’t fucking killed me yet.
Go ahead. TRIGGER ME. Hit me with the worst you’ve got and I’ll fight you tooth and claw and come out stronger from it. And if you pussies can’t take it, then fuck you too.
I’m so fucking tired of being so goddamned polite and caring so damn much about what everyone thinks. Especially coming from you lgbt rights people who are all for “be yourself” and don’t care what anyone thinks, and then turning around and manipulating the system into a nice silent polite little bubble to lick your wounds.
You want to get shit done? You want to make progress? The only way is truth, dialogue, and information. The only way is to lay it all out, let it all hang out, and address what’s really going on without censorship, without playing nice.
Because you can’t force humans to do anything, much less force them to be nice. Make them say all the right words, and I’m sure y’all know from personal experience that they’ll just be waiting for the right excuse to pour out what they really think.
I’m sorry to break it to you, but we’re assholes. So let’s sit down like the civilized assholes that we are and have a dialogue where everyone can just deal with what everyone else has got to say so we can get somewhere that’s not just fucking censorship based, for the love of fuck.
