The Difference

22.06.2006 (10:59 am) – Filed under: Islam ::

So I’ve been bad-mouthing Muslims lately – at least some could see it that way – but here’s an example of the difference between their way of doing things and ours.

The American system is not perfect, but it is a system with a logical intent – and that means a lot.  Yes, there’s politics, cronyism, discrimination, and subjectivity involved, but there’s also a central, static purpose that drives our system:  the approximation of justice via law.  Contrast that to rule by dynamic interpretation of scripture and the difference seems plain.  Whether the Koran is true or not is irrelevant – the mutable, distorted interpretations of it that serve as law in many countries make a poor foundation, one that cannot support a stable society capable of adapting to the world at large.

    Gee, I wish I could have thought of those good words myself.
