These things are only problems in the eyes of fundamentalists. There are
reform/protestant Islamic groups just as in any other religion. I really
don't understand; there are reprehensible passages in every bible. The
Torah is full of misogyny and bizarre law, but I'm sure that when I say I
know a Jewish guy you don't think of that. It makes more sense to think of
a Common Joe (Jomar?) Muslim just as you would any other religion. If you
want to blanket all followers of a religion by the specifics of their texts,
be prepared to condemn a lot more people. Which isn't to say religion is
good. But at least keep your arguments tight*.
