You are absolutely correct, Michael. This is why I left organized religion behind some time ago. God speed!
Also they are using our schools as brainwashng/ind0ctrinatn centers to make our kids believe in marxst anti American
ideas and not in the exceptional nation we are. Our history is being removed in LA statues of civil war heroes being taken away instead of having the conversation we must have. THIS HAS TO STOP.
The US Constitution must be taught and our judeo christian principles NOT ISLAM.
Yes michael u r right but we can stop it we have to.
I'm Catholic, I DO NOT worship a false GOD! The Pope is a man of Peace, and should be respected. You're entitled to your opinion. The name calling I find rather hypocritical. I do agree Islam is evil!
I'm not quite sure what you want to discuss in private? I expressed the fact that I'm Catholic.. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, I DO NOT PRAY TO A FALSE GOD!. That's all that matters. Yes Islam is evil.. What did I say to that bothered you? That the Pope is a man of Peace and should be respected? Are you one that believes the Pope has a bunch of little boys in the Vatican being raped etc. I seen that bs all over the internet. Now that's Satan's writings!!
So maybe you should be careful of what you read and believe.
No response is necessary.
Have a Great Day, In Jesus's name I Pray!
In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Father Boulad said that “Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands.
Those who fail to recognize the real threat posed by Islam are naïve and ignorant of history, he said, and unfortunately many in the Church fall into this category.
Citing a letter he wrote last August to Pope Francis, Father Boulad said that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.”
“Anything that does not espouse this ideology is immediately stigmatized in the name of ‘political correctness,’” he said.
The priest went so far as to chastise Pope Francis himself—a fellow Jesuit—suggesting that he has fallen into this trap as well.
“Many think that a certain number of your positions are aligned with this ideology and that, from complacency, you go from concessions to concessions and compromises in compromises at the expense of the truth,” the priest wrote to Francis.
Christians in the West and in the East, he wrote the Pope, “are expecting something from you other than vague and harmless declarations that may obscure reality.”
“It is high time to emerge from a shameful and embarrassed silence in the face of this Islamism that attacks the West and the rest of the world. A systematically conciliatory attitude is interpreted by the majority of Muslims as a sign of fear and weakness,” he said.
“If Jesus said to us: Blessed are the peacemakers, he did not say to us: Blessed are the pacifists. Peace is peace at any cost, at any price. Such an attitude is a pure and simple betrayal of truth,” he said.
The priest also stated his belief that the West is in an ethical and moral debacle, and its defense of Islam is a denial of truth.
“By defending at all costs Islam and seeking to exonerate it from the horrors committed every day in its name, one ends up betraying the truth,” he wrote.
I'm going to try to write down my understanding of Islam, (Without blowing up my computer)
I've read the Bible and the Quran both. (I read them both - I did NOT memorize either one).
If I am correct in the early stages of the Old Testament GOD laid down all kinds of rules and demands,,,, (No working on the Sabbath,,,, Blood sacrifices, (mostly goats),, You people who know the book better than I do know what I'm referring too.
The people had a very hard time following all the rules and demands, especially some of the interpretations by some of the leaders of the time. The punishments for disobeying the rules was sometimes very severe. This where GOD commanded his SON Jesus Christ to come down and try to set a better place for his people. As Christians we are taught that Christ gave his life so that we could be forgiven for our sins. This was GOD's way of allowing his people to still be saved, while forgiving some of those less-severe sins, Like collecting wood on Sunday,,,,,,,,
(OK,,,,,,,, So give me a break here Michael,,,,, I'm a Christian but not as deeply into it as you are,,,,,,,,,,,)
Islam: And Mohammed;;;;;;;; ( Perhaps only my way of understanding it at least)
Mohammed may have been one of those people who was taught the Old Testament. But Mohammed was also a warrior, a commander of great armies of men. He was not unlike Gingus Kahn, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, and many others. In his pursuit of commanding his army he employed as much as he could of the early scriptures, but those scriptures fell short when it came to point of justifying some of the brutality that he imposed on his enemies. To compensate he expanded on those old testament rules. He expanded and increased the demands placed on his people, Like Stalin, Mao, and Hitler after him, Mohammed was a pure tyrant, a killer of the worst and highest order.
And he demanded the same level of treachery from his army and his commanders.
Today's ISIS commanders are no different, they have taken Mohammed's writings and follow his instructions to the letter.
There is no such thing, no such person, as a "Peaceful" Muslim. THAT is fundamentally against their Islamic religion. It IS against their religious beliefs to simply live in peace. It IS a sin against Allah to allow non-believers to exist. And it is against the teachings of the tyrant Mohammed NOT to kill non-believers when ever possible.
