James Arlandson: Why I don't convert to Islam.
He provides his reasoning from a Christian perspective. Still, the end result is quite devastating. A small excerpt:
This hadith shows Muhammad hitting his girl—bride, Aisha, daughter of Abu Bakr, his right—hand Companion:
'He [Muhammad] struck me [Aisha] on the chest which caused me pain.' (Muslim no. 2127)
Dear Muslim emailer, Quran—inspired domestic violence is completely unacceptable to me, and the many links below refute any attempt at whitewashing the dark clarity of this verse. For me, this is reason enough not to convert to Allah's religion.
Nothing screams PERFECT MORALITY like hitting your pre-teen wife.
