I don't listen to Dr. Laura (or ANY radio psychobabbler), but here is what I heard elsewhere:
Schlessinger is Dr. Laura's maiden name. It is also the name of her son. Dr. Laura has said that a woman should take her husband's name, as should the children. But she made an exception in her case. Her reason is that her husband has nephews, so his family name will live on. But unless Dr. Laura's son took her name, her name would die out.
Still, it strikes me as yet another example of her hypocrisy.
She does that alot, doesn't she - "do as I say not what I do."
As far as Islam is concerned, I never gave it much thought until 9-11, and the recent intifada.
Truth be told Islam seems more like a cult than a religion to me, and what cannot be disputed is that it has been hijacked by radicals, and not just a few radicals - LOTS of them. And they kill people. Sure you have the odd Christian or Jew who goes wiggy, and turns violent or fanatical, but not to the degree Islamists have. So the question arises, what is it about Islam that has spawned so many violent fanatics??
