  1. All religion is basically bad in that they subjecate reason for faith. Faith being the belief in something that ones against reason.
    Susan is a classic example of an intelligent women who takes up a faith because she loves conflict.
    How a person who demands all the benefits an open society gives, especially to women, can take up a medieval and backward religion such as Islam beggars belief. Her former religion has even worse teachings ( read Leviticus) but at least th Christian society as a whole has become quite enlightened. Unlike those who follow Islam.
    It is all very sad.

  2. Islam is the way to God, God’s religion Islam convert us and our life’s to fruitful ones.
