I just finished my letter to the writer of www.bible.ca
Has anybody read all that they write about Islam? Sounds like a JW in the works to me. Well this is my letter folks, dont know why im posting it but what the hell ?!?!?!
I feel that your site is very good. It’s very informative and clear, and is often a pleasure to read. Yet I feel that one section of your site lets it down so much.
The section in question is about Islam. I must admit, I promise you that if you were to have known me personally, I probably would have seemed to you like the last person to ever speak up favorably against Muslims. Yet I feel that I must do this as Muslims seem to get a rough deal from all those that are unfamiliar with their faith and from those that are just plain ignorant regarding issues surrounding Muslims. Unfortunately, I feel as if this is what your site has portrayed on its section regarding Islam.
I am a Christian myself. I feel that the more people that come to know Christ the better; the bible even tells us that there is more joy in heaven when one man repents than when 99 righteous people who have no need of repentance. (Luke 15v7) So obviously I'd welcome anybody just as Christ welcomes them into his flock.
Yet I feel that there is no need to blatantly sensationalize things just to get attention. In my eyes, it’s a big waste of time. If you are an atheist, by the same way in which you speak about the Quran you could speak about the Bible.
For instance, you write unfavorably about Islamic female subjection, in your articles about the 'toothbrush'. You cite this text as an example:
"Men are in charge of women, because Allah has 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 has guarded. As for those from whom you 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." (Pickthall's version of the Koran, Quran,
