You believe that it is not true that all people are equal or created equal? If that is the case, persons are in a superior positions and who are inferior, in your opinion? What makes one to rise? Education? Social Status?
People are not equal, neither in potential nor in manifestation, this is a simple fact. And the human qualities, both metaphysical and physical shine so brightly that they can hardly be hidden, and which one must spend an enormous effort to hide them if he wanted to (e.g. a lot of master Sufis who have chosen to withdraw instead to use their knowledge and teach a maximum number of people, like sidi Abdeslam ben Mchich.
How is uncovered hair the equivalent of nudity? Why is the dictate of one culture the only "right" one? Can you give any real citation or information as to your assertion on Ethiopia?
I didn't say they are equal, I was merely referring to the argument that a custom ought to be accepted simply by virtue of being a custom.
As for Ethiopia, I think there's a few Ethiopian in the forum, they would be more eligible to talk to you about how Christianity affected their culture and customs.
Why must a Muslim or a Christian believe that women should cover their hair? Because the Quran and the Bible say so, and I give this answer even though I know it drives certain people mad. If you want me to give an explanation on why covering hair is a good thing from a purely social point of view, then I will try to, though I would like it if you didn't as it would very long and tyring to do so
On another note: You have stated that you disapprove of the "Enlightenment". Just so that one may understand. What do you mean by the term and what results do you think came from it that are bad?
I mean by the term the humanist movement that appeared in Europe before the French Revolution and lead to it. And I think it was a destructive movement mainly because of its anti-normal, anti-Traditional basis represented in its humanism, which denies anything of supra-human nature. Something which had its most disastrous results, as far as the temporal world in concerned, in politics (democracy) and society (liberalism), both of which are baseless, erroneous, destructive and idolatrous.
What personal experience have you had with Christians?
None, really. I live in a +99% Muslim country. We get a lot of tourists and have some European living here.
Have you ever been part of a Christian worship service and if so what Church?
No. We do have a big church right in the middle of the busiest section of it, but I'm not sure they even hold a service in sundays anymore. Local associations use it for social activities most of the time.
BTW, the city is Tetouan in Northen Morocco.
On what do you base your OP imagined tale?
The mosque half is from my own experience, and the Church half is from my what I've gathered from teh media and teh internet. I could be wrong though, but it's extremely unlikely.
