    If a belief cannot withstand criticism, it is, eventually, bound to fail. Trying to eliminate opposition to your religion shows a lack of confidence in your own belief.

    I thank God (or should I say Allah? o_O) that I am not a woman in one of those third world countries. Travel around the world a bit and then come back home. It is such a relief to return to Canada or the USA.

    There's a long history in the Christian faith of trying to be silenced and then trying to silence anything but the doctrine of man. Throughout the bible you see the Pharisees trying to shut Christians up by beating them and murdering them. And then in the Catholic church, Martin Luther posts the 95 theses, and the Church tries to kill him. In the Protestant church, Calvin gets a note on his podium that contradicts his preaching and he tries to have that person killed. "pure religion" as it says in James 1:27 "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

    Religion isn't faith, it doesn't save you. Works don't save you. They're merely a product of living in faith, not the basis of salvation.

    How is what we do in the name of religion today even close to that definition in James?
