Op-ed:
7th Century Norms in a 21st Century World
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

"As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help." - qur'an (3:56)

As we come to the end of Ramadan...islam's holy month of “fasting” from dawn to dusk...the acts of terrorism committed during this supposed time of reflection and piousness increases as each day passes proving once again that islam is anything but a religion of peace....proving once again that islam seriously needs to undergo a reformation.

And while we civilized folks surely know this as truth, what many don't understand is that for any sort of religious reformation to take place islam also needs a societal reformation even more so for without changing its societal norms islam will remain mired down in antiquated beliefs, taboos, and mindsets straight out of the the 7th century. And this goes way beyond just learning how to set aside the idea that islam will conqueror the world...it won't...but actually might make it easier for muslims to not only be accepted into 21st century society, but to live in it as productive members of what we call the civilized world.
