How to Slander a Muslim

Many people are puzzled by the charge of slander laid against Mitt Romney.

All Romney did was directly quote what Barack Obama said.
Since when has quoting a man, providing the full context of his remarks, and then sitting back to watch the fireworks constitute slander?

Well, it doesn't - from a Western point of view.
But from an Eastern point of view, it's an entirely different matter.
From the Sunni Muslim Sharia law manual, Reliance of the Traveller:
r2.2 Slander (ghiba) means to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike, whether about his body, religion, everyday life, self, disposition, property, son, father, wife, servant, turban, garment, gait, movements, smiling, dissoluteness, frowning, cheerfulness, or anything else connected with him.
In Islam, it is slander to tell the truth about someone if that person doesn't like it. 
In the United States, we call this "political correctness".

If you ever wondered why the Left and Islam get along so well, this may help answer your question.

To gain a better understanding of leftist and Muslim thinking and why they get along so well, read Jamie Glazov's "United In Hate". The bottom line is they both hate people being able to freely make choices concerning how their lives and destinies will go. These know-it-alls think they have the perfect system and woe to the foll who tries to prove them wrong!

It saddens me to see Christians allowing their politics to overshadow their sense and humanity.

The President sucks. But it is a very low class of human being - let alone Christian - that allows the lowest common denominator of their politics to pull the Muslim card on him.

I am so disappointed that a blog I enjoyed allowed gutter politics to eclipse what Jesus taught. Idiocy like this makes people draw all the wrong inferences about people of faith.

You lost a follower.

I am a college professor who teaches world religions. I teach people about the Muslim faith for a living.

If you could point out any sentence in this very short essay which is not true, I would be deeply obliged.

Since when did reality get redefined as "gutter politics"?
