I'm a free thinker, free from religious dogma. What I can't understand is why Muslims move to democratic countries and riot and cause trouble ...

Muslims abroad get to do what they like, when they like and how they like, but heaven forbid a person who is not a Muslim says something about them ...

It's amazing how you were to pack that much crazy into two short sentences like that. It makes it tough to decide where to start. I got some bad news for you sweetie, that kind of blind raging hate, not the least bit helpful to whatever crusade you think you are on. From all indications, unless your God does something to stop it, you're going to get four more years, you may want to start booking your psychiatric appointments early. As for the Obamanator being "muslim scum", if that's the fantasy you wanna hang with, knock yourself out, just be thankful that if he is, he's just about as at it as people like you are at being Christian.

Now, I am a great one for keeping things within context (believe it or not). Please double check which individual that post was aimed at. One of the most hateful individuals in here. If HE thinks Obama is doing a good job, then Obama's background - which Obama himself has already called into question - is questionable.
It makes no difference to me who occupies the whitehouse. But I do care very much about the venemous attitude displayed FREELY, and with no obvious cause, by our friend abba. If any user of this forum begins their posts by declaring that the west will 'bow' to islam and western women had better get used to wearing a berka - and we had all better start accepting the quran.....then that individual deserves everything they get, from anywhere they get it.
Have a good evening.:-)

The real question is why do you imagine that making a difference? Invoking an Old Testament version of God instead of one from the New is still the invoking of the Christian God. Saying that there isn't anything in the New Testament that they can use as being anything meaningful, especially after God has already been invoked by said Christians is a silly way to split hairs.

I agree wit you. Its not a question of what one book or another book says, its a question of what we know to be right and wrong. But islam does seem to have a real problem in making that distiction. The westerners might not be saints, but we dont stone people or marry children.

... there was no "invoking of the Christian God" until His incarnation as recorded in the New Testament.

Otherwise, your post claims there is no difference between Judaism and Christianity, a claim both faiths would disagree with.

However, the real question is why you continue to equivocate between the officially sanctioned violence inherent in islam's qu'ran and the Christian New Testament without citing any proof from that Testament.

But we both already know the answer: those verses just aren't there.

The Sauline, Cappadocian, and Nicene heretics certainly would object. They're anti-semitic from their start.
