Re: western women converting to Islam
Might want to ask someone who appreciates the idea of religion but I'll give it a go.
I suppose people belong to a particular religion not because of the comforts and freedoms they're given, but because they believe it speaks the most truths, especially regarding how we should be living. These Western Women and all the other Islam converts must simply just want to belong with the religion which they believe will make the world a better place to live.
From my unbiased point of view, the basics of it is, Islam is better at selling themselves than Christianity or any other religion is. You can call it making the most sense, best persuasion, best guilt trips or even best brainwashing.. depends on your point of view.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
You know, If life gave me lemons, you know, yeah, I'd try, you know, to smoke it, you know?
