Quoting Layla-and-Faith:" I'm not preaching to her. I could careless what she chooses to follow but I feel from reading it that ... [snip!] ... is popular, seem to see it in a very different way then those who convert and read different/updated versions of the qur'an."
the thing is,
the way the Quran teaches its people, and the way its people interpret its teachings are two totally different things. in WESTERN SOCIETY it is not OK to beat woman or be married to many wives or to ask women to cover thier bodies in order to help men not be provoked... but in a Muslim society, these things are not uncommon. I just dont see the sense in trying to force anyone to believe that what thier religion teaches is wrong. there is a reason some women flee muslim societies and some dont. Because some women feel opressed, and others dont!!
think of it like this:
the Bible teaches alot of things.... and every denomination of Christianty interprets it differently. it doesnt mean any of them are wrong they just practice differently.
