Yeah, not directed at you.

But I think you are correct on electing a president with a religion other than christian.

It was a big deal when JFK was elected, being Catholic and all...

I was referring to countries like Pakistan, India, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc. Not Muslims living here. I don't know much about them, but I lived in Pakistan for 4 years, and traveled extensively thru out the middle east. I know a lot a lot these people's Sharia.

But, in any case, I do think that as a nation we are a long way from considering electing a Muslim as President. Even a "raised as a Muslim but is non-practicing" would be a big stretch.

We also won't elect an atheist.

Sure. I wasn't suggesting otherwise. Perhaps that wasn't intended for me.

Probably, numerically, if you pick a random Muslim vs a random Christian, your random Muslim is more likely than the random Christian to frown on educating women etc.

Not a rule, but definitely a tendency. About a 150 year lag between the two.

There are some Christian sects that don't allow or frown upon women's education.

Some do, some don't.

One of my best friends in grad school was a devout Muslim. She is current a chemistry professor at a state university. Her family has never given her a hard time about it.

What they HAVE given her a hard time about is dating non-Muslim men.

Not until they enable equal education for Muslim women; nor until they seek women's participation in the decision making process, not until they allow Muslim women to escape the denuding humiliation of burqa existence, will Muslims reach productive equality with other cultures. Name one Muslim country, except for those with oil riches, that is not a nation in poverty. Name one! When the oil runs out, they all will be poor, and they will blame us for being poor.

There are 30-40 different major branches od Christianity, and 30,0000+ different churches.

I imagine the Muslim religion is basically the same.

@HTG: I cannot live with anyone. Anyway, while on the bike this am at the gym, this is a bit off topic yet relevant with respect to the campaign where Ben Carson said no Muslim should be President. Christiana Amanpour had on her show an Imam and some other guy. Apparently, there is now a "new" study guide to the Quran. I can't remember the exact title with this carb depletion but if no one else finds it by the time I log back in, I'll look it up. This is to weed out misinterpretations. I guess it would be similar to a Concordance with respect to the Bible. I have to get some sleep.

BLT and Z Z are both Florida residence. I think they should move in together and combine their post.
