My dogs live IN MY HOUSE. Thank you so much. They go to the groomers for baths and haircuts, wouldn't know what a flea is, and certainly don't have worms.
They get checked at the VETS for anything like that, and are kept clean and healthy.
As far as the testicle licking. Who cares? It's just another part of their body they lick to keep clean. They have natural antibiotics in their mouths, just so you'll know. Men have testicles, and so do dogs.
It's just nature, friend. Nothing to fear.
I don't think an Angel would mind visiting my home at all. I think they might like it here, and would probably smile at my dogs, who would delight them, as they do everyone.
They are such loving, honest creatures. Humans would do well to aspire to be more like them.

So, it's ok to behead people, hang accused homosexual teens in the street, stone women to death for showing independance and burn accused criminal people alive (I won't link the vid on that one), but it's *not* ok to have a dog as a pet...
I'm so glad I went to school and received an education and didn't succumb to such a silly, draconian way of thinking.

I think this says more about Iran than of Islam, I have plenty of muslim friends to whom I pose questions about their faith. I asked my friend about dogs last week - he said that muslims can keep dogs as pets as long as they live in the yard and don't come into the house.
I also found that people misunderstood halal, I always thought it was just a method of killing (a shallow cut to the neck) when infact it encompases the welfare of the animal right up until its death - very similar to kosher. and anchient version of free range!
This anti- islam mentality disgusts me - hats off to our governments the have brainwashed you guys well....I really didn't think I'd run into this kind of attitude on ATS.
For whats its worth, I think that too many people use organised religion to hide their bigotry and you can plop Mr Bible Belt American on top of that pile...I rather like some of the ideas that sikhism teaches - 'If you don't see god in all, you don't see god at all'
What ever you say about iranians, they are no where as bad as anglo american empire, and there torture of humans.
