In a previous thread on Sharia law today, axidy10 came in guns blazing, spouted some interesting / telling replies then requested the thread be closed so his comments couldn't be replied to. Seemed interesting folks can be so desperate not to have their arguments dispelled they would rather quell all discussion. What's clearly interesting, to me at least is that despite the horrific nature of Sharia law in various countries around the world, some Muslims will defend it. Is this primarily because there's no choice but to defend it in order to feel they are following their faith or is it true blindlessness to the horrific nature of some of it's laws in less progressive countries? Is the kind of washing over the horrific nature of stoning women to death etc, part of the way belief is maintained? Here's the last post .. ============================ Originally Posted by SimonH .??? So stoning , torturing or impronsonment of homosexuals, athesists or the murder of raped women is not disgusting. The truth is you close your eyes to reality in order to sustain belief. The bare truth is to hideous to deal with. That's a fact, whether you wish to deal with it or not. I agree Sharia law has some good points, charitable donations etc but that doesn't excuse some of its hideous barbaric undertones. ========his reply============== your mere reply shows such a lack of understanding its unbelievable! what you know of sharia law is what you have heard on the news and read on this thread! your ignorance is amazing! Please educate yourself and then come back ================================= Which leads me to believe, he's not trying to defend Sharia law because he feels he should but because he actually believes the above. He actually feels all the news reports about Sharia law are fictional and that everybody is "ignorant" etc. Is this another case of religion clouding judgement to the point of extremes? Has it gotten so bad that somebody thinks and I quote "theres nothing disgusting about shariah law" ? Is that the state of denial for those who have to accept everything in relegious law?
