And where is the evidence that I am not crediting the sources? I've posted the whole article after all. And I didn't want to post the link because I want people to read the article here, the link is irrelevant to me. People don't always click on links.

Besides, isn't the content far more important than the link? And dosn't the heading take you to the article anyway? But of course, you are just being you.

Typically I'm against drinking too since it tends to bring out the worst in people a lot of the time.

That is exactly why it is isn't allowed in Islam..

They also don't know that burqas were initially introduced to separate Muslim women (under Muhammad’s guidance) back on those days from the rest of the women, as women used to be treated as prostitutes everywhere by men and people in those days used to be drunk all the time. There was no other way of telling who was one and who wasn’t one, but after the burqas/hijabs came into play, men would refrain themselves from whistling or making derogatory remarks at those women, who wore burqas on the street. Most women nowadays wear it out of their respect to Muhammad who gave them the respect they deserved.

What? No! lol. I don't think you will be able to tell at all that I am Muslim. In fact, I don't think I've seen any of my family members wearing it like ever to be honest, but I do respect those who do. To each his/her own, you know. Because people find it extreme, then nudity is extreme too which is quite common in some parts of western culture.

But I think if you are in someone else’s country then you should go by their rules because I am sure, Middle East won’t allow nudity on the street or gay parades which also involves a lot of nudity.

Yeah, I lived in Dubai for many years and have also visited Suadi Arabia, Oman and Qatar. Saudi is too strict, man...
Dubai and others are not that much concerned though..

Surprised that the recent failed vote to have C of E women bishops didn't make the thread.  Must admit that I don't know a lot about it but on the surface, I can't see why it's such a problem (that there aren't women bishops).  I'm sure that someone will enlighten me though.

I wish someone would enlighten me as well, especially as I understand that women have been ordained as bishops in NZ for decades.  I just cannot understand why, if women can be ordained as priests, then why not as bishops?  It makes no sense to me, but then I'm not C of E and the Church of Scotland has no such hierarchy, although it was only about 35 years ago that women were allowed to be ordained as ministers after many years of wrangling by the General Assembly.
