I am glad we settled that one

Behold the Islamic rules of Wife Beating (Hattip Stefania): Sheik Aal Mahmoud: If the husband wants to use beatings to treat his wife, he must never ever do it in front of the children. It must remain between him and her. It must be done according to the following conditions: He must not cause bleeding or bruise her body. He should avoid her face and other sensitive parts of her body. As we've said, the limitations on beating are: They must not cause bleeding, they should not break any bones, they should not be on the face, and they should not bruise her. But before you get too excited and start beating your wife's chest, or her stomach, arms, legs or ass, you should realize the following: If the husband violates these rules, he violates the rules of Allah.If she has been hurt, the husband is held liable for what he has done, because the woman is not his merchandise. He cannot do to her whatever he wants. Besides Beating her of course! Sigh....

I think that we should help the secular muslims like you and others ( and there're many ) to get rid of the fanatics and enter in the 21th century.

Secular christians got rid of the Christian fundamentalists ( those who forced Galileo to apologize and burned the secular priest Giordano Bruno ).

The Middle East needs a Secular ( and democratic ) revolution.

Is a Muslim Enlightment possible ? I think it is.

I explained this opinion to my husband, and he got this truly evil grin on his face and said "Hey honey, are you in the mood for some Islamic Discipline?

Yes, they make it all sound so deliberate and dispassionate. "4 pm - 4:30 change motor oil in the crown vic 4:30 - 5 beat wife (before Ahmed gets home from soccer practice) 5 - 6:30 reseed bare patches and water lawn"
I am sure that's exactly how it works out.

This kind of thing is what sets the religion apart from the rest of the world. I'm still sick over the woman in Pakistan who was gang raped as punishment for her brother's supposed transgression. What the **ck!!!! SM, what would happen if the wife defended herself?

Ramez, whereas there's a man beating his wife, there is a human rights activist who is ready to defend that woman.

I guess you're still living in the 7th century.

Hmmmm, sounds like there should be some Lorena Bobbett seminars held over there.

Stefania, I think Ramez missed a "not" in his statement!

Tina, don't even joke about the Bobett thing. Everytime i hear her name i cringe and move my hand to my groin!
