What is Islamic law or sharia, shariah?

What is sharia or Islamic law? Sharia is followed by millions of people in Islam-dominant countries. Below are the popular elements of sharia purportedly ordained by Islamic holy writings, including the Quran and sahih hadiths, as asserted by many Muslim authorities over the centuries.

Human-hating, sociopathic religious fanatics

Religious sociopathy - click to enlarge

Time and again, devotees prove that religious fanaticism causes sociopathic behaviors, including intense human-hatred, misogyny and violence. The hatred and bile with which religious fanatics attack those who question, critique or reject the ideology they follow are relentless and depraved. This sociopathic behavior in defense of an unfeeling ideology often borders on and carries over […]

What is the ummah?

The word “ummah” is used within Islam to describe the global community of Muslims.

Otherwise, they’re stuck with the Abrahamic misogyny. Fortunately, this group of fervent misogynists is tiny; unfortunately, many of them have beaucoup bucks, […]

Women in Buddhism In August 2010, the Dalai Lama made a somewhat astonishing statement that he could be replaced in his leadership role by a woman, even though he clarified that she “should be attractive.” Ignoring the howls of feminists about that last bit, […]

Buddhist sexism

buddhist nuns

As much as I like various of the notions of Buddhism, it is guilty of the typical organized religious sexism and misogyny, largely traceable to this notion: “From what I have heard in Bana preaching by Buddhist monks, a woman could become a Buddha if during her journey through Sansara she accrues sufficient merit to […]
