“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

LOL!!! Great question. Oh no, no no no, it doesn't work that way. But he is trying to set people up by using the qualifying word of "catholic", so that he could say that he never said he was a "catholic" priest. Now, if you recognize the obvious problem with what his statement or challenge, do not point it out to him.

That is true. But to him, and many other Muslims, it's all considered a game, and deception is considered to be clever, not shameful.

Yeah, while it also tells you not to befriend them elsewhere. Let's not conveniently forget about those verses, ok? If you do, don't worry, I haven't.

Then just give them to someone else here. So let's see, you said you were a Christian, and you said you used to be a priest. But you never said you were a CATHOLIC priest. And now, the story is that you never said you were a ROMAN Catholic priest. The extra qualifiers just keep getting added on as needed.

I am only responding to what your challenge actually said. But now, that challenge keeps getting adjusted. Me thinks that you now recognize the error that you have made, and this is the reason for the new qualifier of ROMAN Catholic priest, even though your original challenge never said any such thing, it only said Catholic priest.

I used to be a friends with a pathological liar. And I would watch him lie to people when these people were correct. He would deny doing or saying something, when he actually did do it and I was a witness to it, but as a friend, he demanded that I keep my mouth shut if I was really his friend. And these were the exact techniques he always used. And then, he would then turn around and use these same exact techniques on me when he was lying to me, and he was so stupid that he thought I wouldn't put the dots together and realize that he was doing the same thing to me that I watched him do to others..

You have put a very heavy burden on Shamma, bro. He wouldn't spend even $100/- on charity.
Remember, when Jesus asked his disciples to sell every thing and buy swords? The stingy fools said to him, "Lord, we have two swords".
And Jesus stung like a hornet and said, "That is enough!" He knew they wouldn't spend.
Actually, it was I, who had started that and even called you Ex-Father. lol!

So let's see. A former Christian and a priest asks people to show where he ever said he was a Catholic priest, as if there is a distinction to be made. I don;'t think that even any regular or common Protestant Christian would ever make that mistake, and I doubt that a regular Catholic Christian would make that mistake either, let alone someone who actually claims he was a priest.

Now, I think you finally have a pretty good idea of what I was talking about when I said you could have slammed me and called me an idiot for ever even asking you your denomination as the answer is would be obvious and is contained in the very word of priest itself, and I thought you might and I was prepared for you doing so, but you didn't even know any better to do so. So now, the challenge has changed. Now the challenge is for people to show you where you said you were a ROMAN Catholic priest. That's what liars do. They always readjust the story as needed.

There is nothing in Judaism that specifically attacks Christianity like Islam does. Back when the Hebrew scriptures were written, there was nothing to attack. And, interesting enough, there was never one utterance of the word Muslim, no mention of any significance of Mecca, nor Abraham building the Kaaba, nor the Black Stone nor Mecca being the proper prayer direction to face. All frauds invented by Muhammad to make his story work, and to incorporate pagan elements into Islam to attract the pagans. This guy would incorporate whatever he felt like and invent whatever he felt like. Whatever it took. Heck, he would even put words into Jesus' mouth if he thought he needed to.
It reminds me of someone asking him, where are you to be found in our scriptures? And Muhammad says, let me see your scriptures. So they hand it to him, and he adds a few lines to them and hands it back to them and says "here I am".
At least the story of Jesus does not attempt to put words into the mouth of others. Now, whether Jews believe that Jesus fulfilled what he was referenced from their scriptures is a different matter. But he did not pull things out of thin air like Muhammad did. He was a Jew, and therefore could not do that.
You fool!
The followers of Judaism reject your religion and your naked mangod.
Ask them why, you moron.
They follow their scriptures and they reject your idol worshipping cult and your master.

A challenge that is false and stupid never puts a heavy burden on anybody. Did you like the little stunt that he attempted? Did you like where he added the qualification of "Catholic" to his challenge? Of course you did. And he does not even realize the mistake he is making in his challenge, regardless of what little qualifiers he adds to it.

And this is another technique that most pathological liars use. When backed into a corner, sudden;y all sorts of excuses arise as to why they are above even answering questions anymore. Alex, I don't even know who you are and I have no way of knowing that as everything here is anonymous. And telling people exactly what kind of a priest you used to be is really not giving away much mpore about yourself than claiming you were a priest in the first place. Nobody asked you to give away that you used to be a priest. But now, when anybody wants to know what kind of a priest you were, suddenly they have crossed the line.

And the worst part is that you actually expect people to believe these excuses.

If I were Jewish and did not believe that the Jew named Jesus was the Messiah, as Christians claim, I would just think that Christians are mistaken and perhaps misguided. But, if someone came along and told me that all of my prophets were not Jews (or whatever term one chooses) and instead they were all Muslims, i would be much more offended. This isn't someone trying to add to their prophets, this is someone trying to steal them all.
And Muslims claim that since the Quran says that the Jews did not crucify Jesus, only because their attempt failed, then this is less of an insult to Jews. That is ridiculous. Islam not only claims that they attempted to crucify him, and therefore had the same intentions as the Christian version, but it gets even worse. It says that they KNEW he was their Messiah and tried to crucify him anyway. This makes them even MORE guilty.
At least in the Christian version, it is said that they did not know he was the Messiah, and that is why they crucified him. That makes sense to both parties. As far as Jews are concerned, he was not the Messiah and therefore was rightfully crucified for claiming he was. But to accuse the Jews of KNOWING that he was their Messiah and wanting to crucify him anyway, is just over the top and it makes absolutely no sense at all.
And in the Christian version, it wasn't even Jews in general that wanted him crucified, it was the Jewish authorities who felt threatened by his teachings and his growing popularity.
So there is no claim on either side of the fence that does not make sense, it is just a disagreement as to whether Jesus was real or not. But to say that they Jews KNEW he was the Messiah, and even boasted about crucifying their Messiah, is just over the top. It doesn't get any more damning than that.
You are missing the point you fool.
Jesus did NOT come for you.
When will that simple FACT sink in.

Alex, the word Priest in Christianity is something specific to Catholicism. Protestants call their authorities Pastor or Reverend. Get it now? Now how come a former Christian and even Priest, no less, does not know this? So now, the question is whether you were ever even a Christian as you claim, as most Christians, whether Catholic or Protestant know that the word Priest pertains to Catholicism. So why would you claim you used to be a Christian, and then make a distinction between Priest and Catholic Priest and challenge people to tell you where you said you were a Catholic Priest? If you say you were a Priest, and a Christian, this means you were a Catholic Priest. And I think you realize this now, and this is why a new qualifier has been added to your original challenge. The challenge now seems to be where you ever said you were a ROMAN Catholic Priest.
