It doesn't surprise me that you would make fun of the handicapped. People who wear religion on their shoulders often are ethically challenged.

Lecture 7. The message of the Holy Prophet of Islam part-44
Was any message Universal?
My friends! The next question to consider, then, is:‘Was there any Divine Message other than the one sent through Prophet Muhammad that was Universal and applicable in all times?”
For the Children of Israel the only world is their own world. The only God is the God of the Children of Israel. Therefore, none of their prophets nor any of their holy books has ever conveyed the Divine message to the non-Jews. Even today the Jewish religion and the Law of Moses are meant for the Jews alone. All Jewish scriptures are addressed only to the Jews and they are always asked to turn to their hereditary God.
According to the Bible, Christ limited his message to the ‘lost sheep of the Children of Israel and did not like to give “the Children’s food to the dogs” by conveying his message to the non-Israelites.
The ancient Indian, Vedas are not meant for the ears of non- Aryans because they considered the whole world inferior to their race. The books make it sure that the words of Vedas must not reach the inferior ears of the non- Aryans, and if they did so by any chance, those ears should be filled with molten lead.
Prophet Muhammad’s message is the first and the last Message of God which is addressed to all, to the Arabs and the non-Arabs, to the Whites and the Blacks, to the Turks and the Tartars, to the Indians and the Chinese and to the Africans and the Westerners. In this message, Allah is the only God and just as He is the Lord of the Worlds (Praise be to Allah) the Lord of the Worlds), His Messenger too, has been sent to the whole world (he is called ‘Mercy to the whole world”) and his message is the universal message.
To quote a few verses of the holy Quran:
“It is nothing but an advice for all the worlds.”(Chp.6:Vrs.90)
Glorious is the One who has revealed the Criterion to His servant, so that he may be a Warner to all the worlds the One to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth,…
(Chp.25:Vrs.1-2)
(Contd.)
I would like to know why you post this? Islam is committed to killing all those who don't believe the teachings. The Catholic Church waged 12 Crusades to wipe out Islam. It seems Christians and Moslems are all killers.....Radicals that the True God MUST put down. Both religions have the same record of BLOOD-THIRSTINESS. Neither way of life produces peace. Moving to Mars is a good plan.

HughBe--- I was unaware that you were also physically handicapped. The thing is you called me Popeye and I responded to you in a friendly way with no ill will intended.

I took your Pop-eye to mean protruding eyes and hence I called you sunken eye.

1. I didn't call you Popeye. I quoted from Popeye. "I calls em like I sees em." I then attributed the quote to Popeye.

2. Do you normally identify people by their appearance? How shallow are you?

3. Sunken eye disease is a serious condition. It's not to be made fun of.

4. All that bein said, I understand that there was mis communication and I forgive you your transgressions.:)

I know you are master of one liners and two liners and that is where your limit ends.
But why you assume every body on these threads are like you?
Have you not seen "heavey weights" like Joel & co. posting many pages ?
I did not listen any condemnation from you guys on that?
Why pick on me when I post only 1 or max two pages each day?
I dont pick on you. Generally I ignore you, unless I really feel like responding. Which does happen on occasion. Yoda, on the other hand, I am now completely ignoring. The difference is that with you there is hope. Higher standards. You should feel proud.

Sorry to pick on you MUQ but your citation is wrong.

Ever hear of the Noahide Laws?

Again, please accept my deepest apologies for picking on you.

1. Answer to the shallow question is 14 inches
2. I would NEVER, by the grace of God, make fun of ANY person's affliction.
3. Your generosity knows no limit.

This is what I don't understand. The 7 principles set forth in the Noahide laws pre-date what you claim is the beginning of Judaism. You continually and correctly state that Noah, Abraham, Isaac were not Jews and did not follow the 613 mitzvot. So these 7 principles are what Noah, Abraham, and Isaac followed. They are no BS. They are the religious beliefs of the Patriarchs.

Eric---You continually and correctly state that Noah, Abraham, Isaac were not Jews

HughBe--- Correct in your understanding of my representation and in what the truth is.

Eric--and did not follow the 613 mitzvot.

HughBe-- Incorrect. I have never said such an unenlightened thing.

Eric-- So these 7 principles are what Noah, Abraham, and Isaac followed.

HughBe--- Correct and MUCH more.

Eric-- They are no BS. They are the religious beliefs of the Patriarchs

HughBe--- The beliefs are not BS, the concept/doctrine of ONLY these 7 rules/laws is.
