    Religious law is a formal system of morality that rests on system-wide premises, i.e. its scriptures.alcontali

    Islamic scriptures are a wildly incoherent collection of oral transmissions. The only system-wide premise that you will find is "good is what is good for islam". So not sure what you want to enter in your model.

    Of anyone wants to hear the most spelt sexless music, listen to 99 most essential gregorian chants on Youtube. Islam does not know sexless. In Daoism, the ejaculation are pulled in (semen goes to the bladder then) so the man becomes yin and the woman yang.

    An Eastern Christian church says it has the Ark of the Covenant. Some of the Eastern saints were very violent. Seeing no reason to choose one religion over another - leaping over them all

    You know absolutely nothing about the Islamic scriptures.
    You think you know, but you don't.
    Welcome to the Dunning-Kruger effect running loose again:

    In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their competence or incompetence.[1]Wikipedia on the Dunning-Kruger effect

    What you have said, is again a prominent example of liberal-arts ignorance and arrogance. Those degrees are worthless, simply because that way of thinking is worthless.

    Islam has no authority with an infallibility pedigree to deal with modern problems. I defy them even to define sex according to the Quran. In Daoism the man becomes the woman and the woman the man through climax. You need a living authority competent to teach

    Protestants take that living authority as the holy spirit. Rome for Catholics. Muslims are forbidden to look for signs, logically, because then there is the resurrection, Fatima, and hundreds of other things. So no signs can give them a living authority. Does the Koran define gender even? America is called the great satan but most true hermaphrodites who are strippers or more are from the Orient. How can the Koran define which sex these people are? We can set aside the shemale ladyboy thing, since that is transition. There will be far to many modern questions like cloning and a hundred other things, which this ancient system can't handle. Bigotry is not welcome in the West. Come on people

    While Iran has outlawed homosexuality, Iranian Shi'a thinkers such as Ayatollah Khomeini have allowed for transgender people to change their sex so that they can enter heterosexual relationships. This position has been confirmed by the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and is also supported by many other Iranian clerics.

    Iran carries out more sex change operations than any other nation in the world except for Thailand. It is regarded as a cure for homosexuality, which is punishable by death under Iranian law. The government even provides up to half the cost for those needing financial assistance and a sex change is recognized on the birth certificate.[161]
    Wikipedia on transgenders in Islam

    The Shia position on the matter is currently much more accepting of transgenderism than the Sunni one, where there is currently no clear "ijma" (consensus) and where legal opinions are much more divided. But then again, I am not a religious scholar and I am not the right person to ask for a religious advisory on the matter.

    Actually, I have read them all, plus plenty of interpretations by leading clerics (which you admitted to being completely ignorant of).
