in my view, everybody born equally. it means equally to nature. nobody is superior to other prople.

we can't chose the nationality because we got the blood from our parent, however, we have the right and the chance to chose what religion we belive in. religion shall tell us how to live with natrual peaceful and harmoniously. if a religion say some one has more power than others, i think it is a not good and not right religion because how this some one can live if all the others disappeared.

regarding Muslim, i think they need to have a self-examination. why all the world feel afraid the moment people hear this world? what they have bring to the world?

I'm atheist myself, and a happy western woman. I think that humans need something to guide them, some need only god, some others need a whole built-up religion.. It's their choice. I only need my heart to guide me, and I trust myself as the god of my own existance. I'd never kill or hurt anyone, or intentionally make any harm. I don't need a god or a sacred book to tell me how to live, cos I know it in my heart. But I respect people who do need written laws and religions, as long as they make them happy.

Proud muslims should still be muslims, but those woman who feel trapped in that religion should have the freedom to choose the way they live. No tradition or law shall keep us away from our own escence, our own happiness and freedom.

Good..thanks for your opinion about rights of moslem women.. That's a truly moslem life that never known by others.. 

People (whether moslem or not) have no knowledge of Islam. So they often have negative thinking or stereotipe about Islam..

I never said just islam keeps you away from your freedom, but each person hs a different way to express themselves. I'd feel trapped in any religion, because I've never felt like i need any of them. When I was 10 years old, even though everyone taught me to be a good christian catholic girl, I was already atheist and discussed a lot with my religion teacher. I don't think I'm the only one who's gone against the norm, some muslims, as well as some catholics, and from every part of the world and every religion, might be unhappy with it, cos in the heart we're all different and we all need different things.

I hate it when people from any religion say "my religion is the best". There is NO best religion, it just depends on how you live it. You might be a muslim and be a terrorist, or be one and be a saint.  There are catholics who're murderers, others who try hard to help people. We shouldn't blame or praise any religion, what really guides us is what we, individually, feel in our heart.

 

P.S: I agree that some people in the US government (and almost every government) are pure evil, but that doesn't mean the whole US is evil. You're making the same mistake that when western people say that muslims are all terrorists.
