    And tolerance and diversity.

    This is not medieval times.

    It's Islam today.

    And yet the left is quick to compare Christianity during the Crusades as a counter to this. As I have stated before, Christians today do not commit these violent acts that Muslims do regularly.

    It matters little whether it is "encouraged" or "condoned" It almost guarantees submission.

    I'm sure there were plenty of slave owners who did not beat their slaves. But the fact that they could kept them in line, now didn't it?

    Domestic violence is not caused by encouraging traditional gender roles, chanel. Like any violence, it has its own pathology in every perp.....if any of the afflictators was especially Godly, chances are it would not happen.

    chanel, I have been doing trench warfare on DV since 1989. I am not talking through my ass here. There's a huge difference between a cultural machismo motif and a preference to commit attempted murder on your life partners.

    Not everything evil under the sun is caused by Islam.

    No one said that Madeline. My point is the THREAT of battery often discourages women from taking an equal role in a relationship. Common sense 101.

    "Equal" is a philosophical question, chanel. If two people relate, both are "equally relating". You have not only missed the dog and the tail on the dog, you have missed the entire species of dogly creatures here.

    A domestic violence perp can and does appear in any race, creed, age, income, place, educational level, occupation, etc. It is an extremely echumenical crime. The reasons why a person becomes a perp are unique to that person's pathology and could be anything from mental illness to childhood abuse to some people are just evil shitheads.

    The perp goes in search of the victim, acquires him or her and commences the violence, fine tuning it not to exceed that victim's thresholds for escape. Victims do not cause the violence and no cultural features of independence or willfulness or education will insulate a person from being victimized...all these things can ever do is drive up the level of sophistication needed to acquire that person as a victim.

    In the right place, by the right person, you too could be a victim, chanel. No one gets "safe" tattooed on their ass.

    There is little philosophical about the word 'equal', moron.

    There IS something philosophical about relativsm; and often those who attempt it, haven't a clue about it.
