Truly. And actually, I even see it on here, how Islam is “stuck in ___ century” or it’s “positively medieval and barbaric.”
The High Middle Ages produced chivalry—where the man was supposed to sacrifice all to protect and defend the honor of his lady. It produced the troubadours who put women up on pedestals. Take a look at any medieval art collection, what do you see? Enormous tenderness toward the Virgin Mary. And literature...sheesh. Can you imagine an Islamist writing the Paradiso, with Dante being taken on a tour through heaven by the beloved and angelic Beatrice?
There is not and there has never been *any* Christian equivalent for the systematic downgrading of women in Islamic theology.

It produced those in Europe, not in the Middle East. There were a few scholars and artists in the Middle east, they were killed by Islamists.
BTW, your viewing the middle ages through rose colored glasses. There was plenty of barbaric activities in Europe as well.
Lets call the UN to see if we can get them some rights!
Ironic that Joseph stepped up and married Mary to prevent her from being the victim of honor killing
