However, the understanding and study of any religion (that will become your way of life) must include the close examination of peoples, history and the influence or spread into other countries. One paramount area of Islam that must be examined is the influence of Islam in other countries. We must consider: With the mass spread of Islam in parts of Africa, exactly how d ...

... nt campaign to have fifteen million Americans wear armbands on 22 January 1985, one for every legal abortion since 1973. Falwell's anti-abortion outburst epitomized Reaganism's orientation: We can no longer passively and quietly wait for the Supreme Court to change their mind or for Congress to pass a law.
