Please! Read the Old Testament and see where these ideas come from? Like well, any woman who wears any article of men’s clothing must be stoned to death, just as any man who wears an item of women’s clothing!
It get’s really tiresome the complaints, even though valid in today’s world, how “backward” Islam is supposed to be, when the same views are held by “observant” Jews, and many evangelical Christian sects. While the “death penalty exclusion” has made some progress, ostracism can be just as serious to some. Hindus of course also have “honor killings” still and that IS tragic.
Of course, bombing folks with modern weapons, folks who’ve done NOTHING TO US, folks who are still armed mostly with obsolete weapons, in THEIR lands, as we invade them, is “sophistication”?
