That is the thing, they would argue they don't. This is complicated thing and I again, I know you don't get upset easily, I wasn't attempting to slight you when I said what I did.
I did not take it as such. A comparison is not an insult, particularly if it is a reasonable comparison.
I am just saying that placing more moral power in women or esteeming the moral agency of women and disparaging that agency of men seems very Muslim to me rather than typically Christian or Judaic. Of course the outcomes might seem odd.
Now that is the problem with people like you and me that are capable of seeing things in more than one color. You were seeing my comments on women as applying to different characteristics than I was. Morals of women were not what I was considering. However, where they do shine in morals, they shine. A "moral" man will sit in a rough gown on a hard floor and pray for you. A "moral" woman will more likely get off her butt and actually feed you. It is that tender care that I find more satisfying than most contact that I have with men. Also, the beauty of a woman, to me, surpasses most of that of nature. In general, I prefer the company of women to that of men, even for conversation and such.
Muslims think they are protecting women from men at every turn and that men are at the same time more predictable do to their rather base nature vis-a-vis women.
They and I probably see eye to eye here.
Maybe Isa and others who have lived more among Muslims and have had longer talks with them have different views, but even when the Quran alters certain aspects of the Judeo-Christian tradition, women usually make out better in the story.
I have probably moved this way in my later years, perhaps due to contact with good women (including the one I married).
Anyway, I am snowed in and musing more than anything. But yeah in short, me saying you sound sorta like a Muslim isn't an insult or an attempt at one.
I do not dislike everything about them, even if I do lean a bit toward ethnically cleansing them. Here it is just cold. It is supposed to drop to -3 F by morning. It was only +1 this morning.
