Comments on: Burqa losing favour as Afghan women opt for chador http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/07/08/burqa-losing-favour-as-afghan-women-opt-for-chador/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Randy http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/07/08/burqa-losing-favour-as-afghan-women-opt-for-chador/comment-page-1/#comment-13524 Fri, 10 Jul 2009 12:51:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=7010#comment-13524 I believe each person is responsible for their own actions and that they will ultimately answer for those actions. It is not the fault of the victim. It is the fault of the perpetrator in any crime or sin.My opinion is that people should be free to choose what clothes they want to wear. I also know that men were created with a desire for women. This desire is stimulated first visually. Some men under certain circumstances don’t have the self control necessary to contain themselves. Knowing this information, women should choose what they wear with wisdom. Would you stand in front of a hungry tiger holding raw meat and not expect to be attacked? NO!!! And who’s fault would it be when you were attacked? I say the tigers because it chose to go after the meat. But who was the fool? I say it was the person holding the meat.Oh, read your bible, the fall of the human race is squarely put on one man’s choice: Adam. Adam was not deceived by the serpent as Eve was and he chose to eat the forbidden fruit. The saving of the human race is squarely put on one man’s perfect sacrifice: Jesus. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth and the life; no man comes to the father but by me.” John 14:6

Faith/Spirituality is completely different from religion, which, in my opinion, is nothing but mind control.Also, those who think women should hide their bodies in order to not get raped — how about teaching men more self-control? If you cut off a hand for stealing, cut off his member for raping. Fair deal, imo.

Hurm, blaming the victim, what an enlightened viewpoint, I can see you really thought about this. Also, can you provide accurate statistics on sexual assault in the Middle East? I ask, but of course you can’t, just like you can’t prove any sort of causal connection between sexual assaults and the manner in which the victim dresses.

The world will be a far better place as more people become educated and in touch with their real spiritual nature, and finally throw off the shackles and blinders of religion for good!

I wear whatever I want. Some days I wear a t-shirt and jeans, other days salwar kameez. Some days I wear hijab, some days I don’t.Something else y’all need to think about; something important that has seemed to sail past everyone here. It’s that the women who cover WANT to cover – it’s not men forcing them to. Where I live, I see women wearing all sorts of clothing styles; from as western as anything you’d see in the US to niqab to full burqa and everything in between and all of these women and girls are Muslim. Having gotten to know many women over here, the fundamental truth is that’s their choice, and it should be respected.By the same token, those countries imposing some sort of requirement of women to wear the burqa need to also respect that there may be some women who interpret the command of Allah differently and who don’t feel the burqa is required of them. I think in those Islamic nations, culture has become confused with religious teaching.

Attending church aside, the Bible preaches equality more than any other Abrahamic religion. Jesus Christ Himself preached more equality than any other man in His culture.Christians’ attitudes toward women are far different than those of Muslim men. I’ve never heard any Christian place blame for loss of Eden on the woman – it was Eve’s action, yes, but Adam’s inaction. Both man and woman are equally to blame, and so both share in the curse.
