I recently wrote an article about ISIS – being pushed back, sex slavery – and how they used the Quran to justify sex slavery and raping people who are not of their brand of religion (or even of their strain of their brand of religion).
It seems like such a coincidence then that I immediately run in to an article about a Christian couple in the United States of America that held a 13 year old girl for 5 years as their sex slave using the Bible as their justification.
Just how different are the Christians and the Muslims when the foundation of their religions – their core documents can easily be used to justify sex slavery and rape?
Yes, yes, yes, I know the old tired argument : “You can justify anything in the bible/quran/talmud/bhagava ghita/etc.
It is all a heaping pile of BS. You know I have learned a lot about project management and studying waterfall and agile methodologies. The core about these methods is communication. Clear communication.
In no way can it be said that any religious text is a clear communication. How can you base your life on documents that are not clear – that contradict themselves? Documents that do not even clearly state something like “Slavery is immoral”, “rape under any circumstances is harmful and should not be allowed”, “genocide is immoral under any circumstances”.
Just how good can you be following documents that are not good?
