Have you ever considered that perhaps the Muslims are right, and God -- excuse me, Allah -- really is a hard-ass kind of deity who really does want us to drop everything and pray at least 5 times a day, and to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, and that everything us Americans -- and we really are the Great Satan, BTW, and those 9/11 guys really did go to Paradise -- find outrageous about Shari`ah law and Fiqh is really a-okay by Him? Just because most of us have been raised in the modern Judeo-Christian tradition that implies a just, loving God doesn't give us any guarantee that He's really like that.
