Said President Obama about the Muslim observance of Ramadan:
These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.
Let’s parse this logically, shall we?
- Sharia Law is Islamic Law.
- Islamic Law is rooted in the Qur’an and Muhammed’s Sunnah, as well as the Hadith.
- Among other things, Islamic Law permits a man to beat his wife at will without explanation, and tax non-Muslims for being non-Muslim.
- Therefore, Islam is progressive and tolerant?
