Islam a Religion of Peace?

Hell no! While I have long defended people of all religion and their right to practice their faith freely in this country I can no longer ignore the glaring differences between Islam and nearly every other major religion on the planet. People have done terrible things in the name of Christianity, but that occurred centuries ago. The religion is modernized and has under gone reformations. The occasional nutjobs make headlines, but they are a fringe. Islam receives every excuse. The media gives it a pass. History books used in schools give it a pass. It is supposedly such wonderful religion of peace. No it is not. Muslims supposedly contributed so much to the world in math and science. Perhaps some did, but this was in spite of the Islamic faith and not due to its teachings. There are probably some good practitioners of the faith that are conforming to their own version of the faith devoid of its inherent violence and lack of civility. They need to be more vocal and demand an international reformation of the faith. Unfortunately they'd probably have their throats cut by the more orthodox muslims.

In New Jersey a woman was repeatedly raped by her ex-husband. He said that it was her duty. He was her husband and under Islamic law she must submit to him. Well what does Islam have to say about this?

Qur'an 4:34 states:

Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.
Muhammad said: "If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning" (Bukhari 4.54.460).

He also said: "By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel's saddle" (Ibn Majah 1854). (From Jihad Watch)

So the woman seeks a restraining order. She would like to be protected from her husband who brutally raped her on multiple occasions. The judge said NO. Apparently if rape is okay with Islam it is ok with him.

We are supposed to be a Republic. A nation of laws. Our laws are supposed to protect OUR rights. The government's one and only legitimate function is to protect the people and maintain maximum liberty consistent with civil society! If we have descended to this degenerated state then there is little hope. This is unacceptable. Have we so weakened our nation and its institutions? This is sad. What is happening to this country? Political correctness is a cancer that is destroying our culture and society. Where is the outrage? Moreover, where is the media? Maybe I missed it, but have you seen this reported ANYWHERE?? If a  Christian or Catholic man tried to use his faith to justify such a despicable act people in the media would demand he be strung up and his faith criminalized (I may be exaggerating only slightly). There would be justifiable outrage. Why the double standard?

The ones who want to build that mega-mosque right next to Ground Zero should be told to piss off. If a Greek Orthodox church can't get their existing facility rebuilt in its original location at Ground Zero why the hell are we fast tracking this mosque? Unacceptable. This is only meant as a finger in the eye of America and salt on the wounds of the victims' families. It is the equivalent of the muslims destroying the Temple Mount and then building the Dome of the Rock on its old foundation. Islam is about conquest and forcing others to submit. There can be no peace. Not until there is a fundamental transformation of Islam.
