Can modern Islam ever align with Irish human rights ?

Irish women threw off the headscarves and segregation in the Catholic Church decades ago, we won’t be substiting that awfulness for another. The clip above demonstrates some brave modern Imans. That’s to be supported.

These women in the linked article are exhibiting incredible bravery. The media in the west should shine more light on these freedom fighters. It could help protect them. It could help the west understand our problems are a drop in the ocean.
No they are being impertinent brats as students in their late teens or early twenties often are globally. The late 1960s the Russian American historian and sociologist of genius proportions predicted that the so-called "sexual revolution" if it took root would lead to the coarsening on all levels if not outright collapse of the culture of the West, decades on now after it most certainly did they root we can see that his warnings were indeed correct on a scale maybe he would have found unimaginable. We used to have probably the most refined and thoughtful high culture in the global history of humanity for all the evils that basically go with being human that were to be found in our civilization even into the early to mid 1960s- and now look at us! Do you think that as we are now capable of producing a Goethe or a Dickens? A Dante or Novalis? Look at the superficiality and often sordid nature of today's culture in the West where filthy minded pornographers such as William Burroughs are actually regarded as literary greats!

Do you want to inflict the below on the Muslim world?

That is where the idea of "freedom" of the likes yourself and your heroine the proven fantasist Somali illegal immigrant leads to.

She ‘chose’ to wear it. As a mark of respect. To show a hurt community that they are supported in their grief.
She could have shown respect without submitting to a medieval practice designed to show women their second class status under Islam.

Do we have a thread on Brunei stonings for gays ?

Can't find any, other than comments buried in unrelated threads.

Do you know anything about the suicide rate for women in Islamic countries like Afghanistan?
And why do you assume their self harming rates are lower there? Perhaps it's just that nobody bothers collecting the figures. So much for happiness.

The basic flaw with this thread is that there's really no such thing as "modern" Islam - it's based on a rule book that has not changed for 1400 years.
