I tried to ask Muslims at one of their sites if they had such a rule but no one indicated that there was one. Seems you are a better informed Muslim than most.
Tell us though, why do Muslims and Sharia not apply that rule to women?
I see where Muslim apply it to brothers, but they seem to not apply it to sisters as they say women are worth only half of men.
Further, why do they not apply it to apostates, non-believers and gays?
Their freedom should be rescinded if they ask for privileges that go against the law of the land.
Secular law has already bested any of the theistic laws that the mainstream religions have come up with. We have evolved and so should the idol worshiping religions that are stuck in some long past century.
@Gnostic Christian BishopTell us though, why do Muslims and Sharia not apply that rule to women?
All major religions have ridiculously long codices of poorly-worded laws. In all cases, there are multiple interpretations, contradictions, and passages that simply make no sense in any context. Think of Sharia Law like kosher laws for Jewish people. There are many Jews who follow every last rule, down to the letter. There are many more Jewish people who avoid eating ham, bacon, and pork-based entrees - and ignore many the other rules. It's a broad spectrum.
Same goes for Sharia Law. It covers LOTS of subject, including the importance of washing one's hands, and brushing teeth. Seriously. If you regularly wash your hands and brush your teeth, you are following Sharia Law. So the term "Sharia Law" should not automatically be considered scary. Yes - there are pieces of Sharia Law that are genuinely awful. And millions of Muslims (especially in the United States) ignore these pieces the same way that most Jews and Christians overlook the "stoning" directives in the Bible.
