    There was a bit on the radio about a woman who, as part of the 'me-too' thing, has proudly formed a film company called 'Mother Suckers' which employs an 80% female workforce. It's unfair labour practice and against the law, you see, but it's justified as affirmative action.

    Sigh ..

    Many people are using Systemic Racism to define racism period. Certainly an oppressed people cannot be guilty of Systemic Racism, but anyone, even a member of an oppressed minority, can be a racist - such as having any belief in racial supremacy.

    And not in reference to anyone here. Pampered western society in general. I'm just a grumpy old git some days, lol :confused:

    But I like to start every day with the thought: I wonder what I will come home tonight knowing what I don't know this morning. What am I going to learn today.

    Have a good one there in Germany @Cino. We've got a first frost here this morning in Devon, England. Brrr

    Same to you! There has been some snowfall here, though not in the city where I live.

    10:99 - If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?


    Not very important.

    Then why do all traditional schools of Islamic jurisprudence punish individuals for apostasy from Islam? In the Islamic world your view is the minority view.

    That pew research article missed the German blasphemy law, by the way.

    It is still being applied. A man was fined for gaving an anti-christian bumper sticker only a couple of years ago.

    Not all, take Turkey for example. Also being a minority view doesn't make it an incorrect view. As to the why, because people use religion to manipulate and control others.

    This punishment is not supported anywhere in the Quran, it is from extra-Quranic sources(which openly contradict the Quran). The Quran claims that:

    6:38 - We did not leave anything out of this book.
    7:52 - We have given them a scripture that is fully detailed, with knowledge, guidance, and mercy for the people who believe.

    Now obviously the Quran doesn't contain, everything. I have not found my mothers recipe for lentil soup anywhere in it for example. It is claiming that everything that pertains to salvation is within it. So if every detail is within it and there is no mention of punishing an apostate how can punishment of apostasy be part of the religion?
