    Mystery Babylonian Religion was the uniting force at the time tower of Babel, but was disrupted into 70 and all different directions (so it was not a divisive factor)

    Their own free will to submit to the fallen one, god of this world. (that is not enslavement)

    Man have always been free, there is no way we can just take it away, their hatred of one on another (we will be against freedom if we are against their freedom)

    Are you against the hatred of Christ? , Jews hated him (yet you hated people who hate Jew?)

    How about Muslim culture??
    Fact check for domestic violence in Muslim countries!
    Nation
    Information on Incidence

    Afghanistan According to HRW 2013 report, Afghanistan has one of the highest incidence rates of domestic violence in the world. Domestic violence is so common that 85 per cent of women admit to experiencing it. 60% of all women report being victims of multiple forms of serial violence.[50] Afghanistan is the only country in which the female suicide rate is higher than that of males.[51]
    Bangladesh According to a WHO, United Nations study, 30% of women in rural Bangladesh reported their first sexual experience to be forced.[52] About 40% report having experienced domestic violence from their intimate partner, and 50% in rural regions report experiencing sexual violence.[53]
    Statistics from four United Nations studies, from 1990s, show that 16-19% of the women (age less than 50) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 40-47% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life. The studies were performed in villages (1992, 1993), Dhaka (2002) and Matlab (2002).[54]

    About 90% of women in Bangladesh are practicing Muslims, which indicates that many Muslim women are victims of physical domestic violence in this country.[55] From a World Health Organization (WHO) study, of which Bangladesh was 1 of 10 participating countries, it was found that less than 2% of domestic abuse victims seek support from the community to resolve abusive situations, primarily because they know that they won't receive the support they need to remedy the issue.[56]

    Naved and Perrson write in their article "Factors Associated with Physical Spousal Abuse of Women During Pregnancy in Bangladesh" that women who are pregnant are more likely to be abused. A study on Pakistan Rural Access and Mobility Study (PRAMS) data showed that 67% of perpetrators were husbands or partners".[57] Bangladesh was found to be one of the countries with a high rate of domestic violence resulting in death during pregnancy by a United Nations study.[58][nb 9]

    Egypt A 2012 United Nations Women's study found that 33% of women in Egypt have experienced physical domestic violence in their lifetime, while 18% report having experienced domestic physical violence in last 12 months.[59]
    Another United Nations national study in 1995, 13% of the women (age 15-49) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 34% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life. In a 2004 study of pregnant women in El-Sheik Zayed 11% of the women (age 15-49) studied were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period and, also, during some period of their life.[60]

    According to Egyptian Centre for Women's Rights and World Bank Social Development Group's 2010 report, 85% of Egyptian women report of having experienced sexual harassment.[61]

    Indonesia The World Health Organization reported sharply increasing rates of domestic violence in Indonesia, with over 25,000 cases in 2007. Nearly 3 in 4 cases, it is the husband beating the wife; the next largest reported category were the in-laws abusing the wife. The higher rates may be because more cases of violence against women are being reported in Indonesia, rather than going unreported, than before.[62][63] From a United Nations study of Central Java, 2% of the women (age 15-49) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 11% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life.[54]
    Iran
    Main article: Domestic violence in Iran

    In Iran the nature of domestic violence is complicated by both a national culture and authoritative state that support control, oppression and violence against women.[4]

    A World Health Organization (WHO) study in Babol found that within the previous year 15.0% of wives had been physically abused, 42.4% had been sexually abused and 81.5% had been psychologically abused (to various degrees) by their husbands, blaming low income, young age, unemployment and low education.[64]

    In 2004 a study of domestic violence was undertaken by the Women's Center for Presidential Advisory, Ministry of Higher Education and The Interior Ministry of capital cities in Iran's 28 provinces. 66% married women in Iran are subjected to some kind of domestic violence in the first year of their marriage, either by their husbands or by their in-laws. All married women who were participants in this study in Iran have experienced 7.4% of the 9 categories of abuse. The likelihood of being subject to violence varied: The more children in a family or the more rural the family lived, the greater the likelihood of domestic violence; Educated and career women were less likely to be victims of abuse. 9.63% of women in the study reported wishing their husbands would die, as a result of the abuse they have experienced.[4]

    The prevalence of domestic violence has been cited as a cause of high rates of suicide, mostly through self-immolation, among Kurdish women in Iran.[65]

    Jordan The 2012 United Nations Women's study found that at least 1 in 5 women in Jordan has experienced physical domestic violence in her lifetime, while 1 in 7 reports having experienced domestic physical violence in last 12 months.[59] Islamic scholars[66] claim mundane domestic violence such as slapping and battering by husband orfamily members is hugely unreported in Jordan, along with other Middle Eastern countries.
    Morocco In Morocco, the most common reason women seek to end a marriage is to extricate themselves from a situation in which they are vulnerable to domestic violence, as 28,000 acts of domestic violence was reported between 1984 and 1998.[67]
    Pakistan A 2011 report claims 80% of women in Pakistan suffer from domestic abuse.[68] A 2004 study claimed 50% of the women in Pakistan are physically battered and 90% are mentally and verbally abused by their men,[69] while other reports claims domestic violence rates between 70% to over 95% in Pakistan.[70][71] Earlier studies from 1970s to 1990s suggest similar incidence rates of domestic violence in Pakistan.[72][73][74] In Pakistan, domestic violence occurs in forms of beatings, sexual violence, torture, mutilation, acid attacks and burning the victim alive (bride burning).[75]
    According to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in 2002, over 90% of married Pakistani women surveyed reported being kicked, slapped, beaten or sexually abused by their husbands and in-laws.[76] Over 90% of Pakistani women consider domestic violence as a norm of every woman's married life.[77]

    Between 1998 and 2003 there were more than 2,666 women killed in honor killings by a family member.[78]

    Palestine In one study, half of 120 women interviewed in the Gaza Strip had been the victims of domestic violence.[79]
    Saudi Arabia In some recent high-profile cases such as that of Rania al-Baz, Muslim women have publicized their mistreatment at the hands of their husbands, in hopes that public condemnation of wife-beating will end toleration of the practice.[80]
    Syria One recent study, in Syria, found that 25% of the married women surveyed said that they had been beaten by their husbands.[81] Another study found that 21.8% of women have experienced some form of domestic violence; 48% of the women who experienced some form of violence had been beaten.[82]
    Turkey A 2009 study published by the Government of Turkey reports widespread domestic violence against women in Turkey. In urban and rural areas, 40% of Turkish women reported having experienced spousal violence in their lifetime, 10% of all women reported of domestic abuse within last 12 months. In the 15-24 year age group, 20% of the women reported of domestic violence by their husbands or male members of their family. The domestic violence ranged from slapping, battering and other forms of violence. The injuries, as a result of the reported domestic violence included bleeding, broken bones and other forms needing medical attention. Over half reported severe injuries. A third of all women who admitted domestic abuse cases, claimed having suffered repeat domestic abuse injuries in excess of 5 times.[83]
    Another United Nations study in East and South-East Anatolia in 1998, 58% of the women (age 14-75) had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life; some of the women in the sampling had never been in a relationship which might have otherwise resulted in a higher statistic.[60]

    mmmmm Does that help with some more facts?

    Women have always been oppressed since ancient times. Good to see Western world finally doing right thing. That will never happen in Muslim nations because it is in the Koran.

    Good reason never to have mass intake of Muslims into Western nations. Our women will be the ones that suffer most! They don't deserve it! Look at Sweden ffs! Rape capital of Europe.

    Maybe you should consider what percentage of those incidents and calls are actually from people where the aggressor is "white Anglo-Celtic Christian-ish" :p

    In any case, I'm sure they'd need a bigger call centre if they set one up in Iran ;)

    Did these guys forget that the Greens also support same-sex marriage, which is contrary to their beliefs?
    Looks like someone better tell their followers that in order to divide them :D

    Then again, I suppose they are willing to make a short term sacrifice for their long term agenda. They know that if they succeed they can deal with homosexuals the way that they do back at home.
