Muslim couple leaves Islam because it’s a “religion of war” full of “venomous misogyny”

“‘The Quran states that a woman is half a man’: Why an Australian Muslim couple turned their backs on Islam because it is a ‘religion of war’ riddled with ‘venomous misogyny,’” by Bryant Hevesi, Daily Mail Australia, June 17, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

A couple who both grew up as Muslims in Pakistan have told why they turned their backs on Islam.

Sami Shah and Ishma Alvi, who became Australian citizens in January and live in Melbourne with their young daughter, said extremism, sexism and misogyny were key reasons why they opted out of the religion.

The couple also explained the reasons for their transition by citing passages from the Quran, which Mr Shah has described as ‘maddening as a text’.

An edited extract from Mr Shah’s latest book, The Islamic Republic of Australia, which details the move from Muslim to non-Muslim was published in The Weekend Australian magazine on Saturday.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
