David Wood has been touted as a public speaker on Islam – his potential clientele seem to be evangelical folk in the New York area. The man has the audacity to even collect cash for such “work”.
David Wood: ignorant of Sharia and insensitive to Pakistani Christians
David Wood churns out his usual trick of manipulating the misery of a Christian rape victim at the hands of a Muslim (in Pakistan) by copying and pasting a heartbreaking rape story of a Pakistani Christian girl whilst adding his own agenda-laden commentary. He tries to link it to “Sharia”:
“And people say we're a bunch of racists and bigots because we oppose Sharia”
Is he for real? Really? What has this story got to do with Sharia? NOTHING!!!
Can somebody tell this chap, Sharia OPPOSES these rapes in Pakistan and Sharia sees this rape as PUNISHABLE and HARAM (Forbidden). If Sharia was allowed to prevail in this instance, the rapist would be punished!
David Wood’s embarrassing “four witnesses” misconception - ignorant or deceptive?
Look, I’m pretty sure this chap has been educated in this regard by the likes of Adnan Rashid, Abdullah al Andalusi, Bassam Zawadi (and other Muslims who debate folk such as David) BUT our David is STILL advancing such myths:
“Good luck getting a conviction. The girl doesn't have four Muslim witnesses to testify on her behalf”
David, please stop embarrassing yourself. The hadd punishment requires four witnesses (or confession) BUT the discretionary punishment does NOT require four witnesses. Therefore, four witnesses are NOT required in order to convict a rapist. It is NOT complicated – why have you been unable to comprehend this?
I mean, you should know this ever so basic information as you are being paid to “lecture” on Islam in Churches. Perhaps these churches care very little about truth and accuracy BUT we do have a regard for the truth, hence this posting to help nudge you into the realm of accuracy, honesty and sensitivity.
Dave, please educate yourself before making yourself look silly. Here is an article we prepared earlier – so Islamophobes, such as yourself can learn a thing or two about Sharia and rape:
Jaw-dropping fear-mongering by “Brian”
I keep saying we need to do like Italy did and not recognize Islam as a legit religion. If we don't stop it now this will be the US soon muslims will run around raping every non muslim in sight.
I think Brian has been watching too many horror movies. Brian, try having a look at NationMaster’s rape statistics – NO Muslim country is in the top 30 and NO Muslim country has more rapes per capita than America, UK, Australia, France, Spain, New Zealand, and Canada…
Do you want to expunge your paranoid comment so you stop looking silly?
Message to Islamophobes – STOP using rapes of Pakistani Christians to further your bashing of Muslims. Nobody of any real consideration is going to convert to Christianity via such underhand missionary methods. Grow up!
