    definately worth a Thought!!



    Ever Wonder!
    * Why a nun can be covered from head to toe , she's respected for
    devoting herself to God, but when a Muslimah does that, she's
    considered "oppressed"?
    * Why a Jew can grow a beard and he's just practicing his faith,
    and when a Muslim does that, he's an extremist?
    * When a western woman stays at home to look after the house
    and kids she's sacrificing herself and doing good for the house
    hold, but when a Muslim woman does so, she "needs to be liberated"?
    * Why is it that when a child dedicates himself to a subject,
    he has potential, and when a child dedicates himself to Islam,
    he is hopeless?
    * When a Christian kills someone, religion is not mentioned,
    (i.e., Ireland and the IRA) but when a Muslim is charged with a
    crime, it's Islam that goes to trial?
    * But then again, why is it after all that, Islam
    is still the fastest growing religion in the world ?

      ===========================================
      A nun covers herself completely by her own will and decides to dedicate her life for Jesus. There is no compulsion in what a nun do and nuns are only a certain miniture part of christian community and do not represent the whole community in general. On the other hand, muslim women are bound to cover themselves(with or without their will). They do not have freedom to chose(unlike nuns who can chose not to be a nun).
      Women in Islam are forced to cover themselves as demonstrated in Saudi Arab, Iran and Afghanistan.

      =========================================
      Muslims are not considered extremist just because of beards, some of them are considered extremist or fundamentalists becuase of their strict beliefs and the strong will to carry terrorist activities(and call it holy war) .It just so happens that most extremist muslims grow beard and are recognised as such
      ---------------------------------------------

      =============================================
      In Ireland christians are killing other christians, so there is no question of religious conflict. Extremist muslims have been and are involved in carrying terrorist activities all over the world. They call it holy war or Jihad and attribute it directly to their religious duty to carry out such activities. That is why religion becomes involved. If they continue to carry out terrorist activites without calling it Holy War, probably attributions will be different.
      ------------------------------------------


      * But then again, why is it after all that, Islam
      is still the fastest growing religion in the world ?
      =======================================
      Because despite some of its controversial weaknesses Islam carries great attractiveness and simple message for the poor. Islam is also growing because of massive population explosion in third word countries and dissemination of population from third world countries to developed countries.

          Thanks for sharing your opinion and view too and showing personal attack rather than coming with a logical answer.

            well.. nuns are required to cover themselves up..

            secondly, it is termed as religious war in Ireland.. for Ireland is the only country in Europe with a religious discrimination laws (unlike racial discrimination laws). For all intents and purposes Catholism and Protestanism are separate religions.

              Well, Catholics and protestants are offshoots of christianity just like shias and sunnis are offshoots of Islam.
              Both Catholics and protestants do have basic differences and the primary difference is acceptance of Pope as the religious leader.
              If you consider catholics and protestants as different religion then Shia, sunnis and all other sects of Islam would be different religions too by this definition.

                Nuns are required to cover themselves but they are not forced to be nuns in the first place unlike in Islam where a women has no choice.
