Whether it was his actual words or not that caused the opening of 25000 churches, the responsibility for that opening was his.
My word and the word of several accredited sources as opposed to your word that actually provided nothing but faith.
But if you want to butt out, then that fine my me. Goodbye until next time…

"Allah", "Eli"."Eloi " and "El" are (respectively) Arabic, Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew dialectic variations on the name of the Abrahamic deity.
It is not related to the Germanic word "God" in any way shape or form.
Lebanese Christians say Allahmaak = may God be with you. I know they're Christian when I hear it, now.

The English word "God" is a generic term for any and all deities.
" El" (AKA "Allah", "Eli", "Eloi") is specific to the Abrahamic chief deity.
Allah in Arabic is a shortening of Al-ilah, meaning The God.

It's all in the Muslim's profession of their faith.

Saudi Arabia has officially identified atheists as terrorists in sweeping new laws that threaten up to 20 years in prison for almost any criticism of the government or Islam.
Perfect , that's what we call a tight grip . Do what ever you want and imprison anyone that objects.= Theocracy
Islam? Christianity? Hinduism?

Anyone of these and all other "pretenders to the God throne " are laughable.

Atheists waste entirely too much time debating delusions of grandeur, imposed at childhood, based on the geographic area that your parents lived in.

Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.

When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.

They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.

They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.

Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

Gay marriages began all across England and Wales at the weekend. Scotland will follow within months. If a gay couple already has a civil partnership, they can trade it up for a full marriage certificate or they can get married again if they prefer.
But Northern Ireland? They're as bigoted as the rest of Ireland. No foreseeable progress there, I'm afraid.

If you have serious faith in Jesus why not perform Jesus missionary work in Saudi Arabia and give them the 'truth'?

I think the 'truth' is... their heads could lopped off and no one will protect them except (sarcasm) Buddha... and he hasn't finished his 10th 'hot pocket' for today!

Conversely...
If we're all 'gods children' what's "in gods green earth " is so very special about Jesus?

You should get out more.
"In May, 2004, the NGLTF (National Lesbian and Gay Task Force) announced a new alliance with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation (WFF), a sexual liberation group that seeks to abolish laws against prostitution; overturn “age of consent” laws protecting children from adult sexual predators; and seeks to legalize homosexual sodomy in public restrooms and
parks. The WFF also seeks to ban all abstinence-only sex education materials in our nation’s public schools."

If you want any credibility, I strongly suggest you don't post propaganda from right-wing hate groups on here.
