It takes no courage to point out the faults of others. It takes real courage to look at ones self, see the faults, and take action.

Provided you don't mind people pointing out your lack of courage. Oh and provided the others don't get too upset by what you are saying.

To put it another way, being in the police must take little courage, as a significant part their job is concerned with pointing out the faults of others.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

"Pick a God? Jews, Christians and Muslims all have the same God, there is only one God! Or did you forget that?"

I hope that is sarcasm. Lets not forget for thousands of years many civilizations believed in polytheism. There is just and much proof for polytheism as there is for monotheism.

All religions have their bad times and people.

We need to understand that this is a small group of muslims without education. Their religion is nearly the same as the other big 2. Respect the religion as a whole and work towards education is all we can do. We need to remember that we also have to education ourselves. Remember to not pick one god over another.

And we need to earn the world's respect again. Without that we have no real power. Every great civilization fails when out of fear they over reach. The romans are a great example of this.

That said. This is sick. I read it the other day. All I could think of was how good of a job we have done trying to force the spread of democracy across the world. Great job all around everyone.

Chris.

Pick a God? Jews, Christians and Muslims all have the same God, there is only one God! Or did you forget that?

The US should stop trying to impose its system on others. What works for us works because we have a shared common background. Without that it doesn't work. The mistake of Vietnam being repeated in Iraq. I wonder what those democracy imposers would do if a country in an open and free election democratically elected a dictator and threw out their constitution?

Yes, what happened to this innocent girl is sick. The sickness is that people honestly believe that God commands them to do some stuff, forbids other stuff and commands humans to make judgments in God's name. If God didn't want us to do it we can't. A prime example is move faster than light.

There are still civilizations that are polytheistic.

Yup, Any Catholic Dominated Country is by definition polytheistic.
Instead of using worship, The biblical term is generally idolatry.

God is God because of His attributes, He is everywhere (Omnipresent). He is all knowing (Omniscience). He is all powerful (Omnipotent). These are attributes that only "a god" can have.

A Catholic believes that Mary can hear his prayer and at the same time hear the prayer of another Catholic a thousand miles away. If that is true, then Mary is omnipresent! He believes that Mary can discern the intent/need behind the repetitious prayer he recites. If that is true, then Mary is omniscient! He further believes that Mary has power to answer prayer as well as perform supernatural miracles. If this is true, then Mary is omnipotent! Now then, Mary is OMNIPOTENT, OMNISCIENCE, and OMNIPRESENT just like the Creator. Mary then, according to Roman Catholic teaching, is A GOD!


You will be hard pressed to find a modern non-calvinist religion that is
not polytheistic.

I'm not sure how Bashing the Original Christian Church is in any way related to Stoning Adulterers and how stoning people is reprehensible.

Hi folks!

Whilst the "Political" thread is slightly more permissive, as we can see...
Please, keep on topic: try to focus this thread and posts to the "Political" point of view....it is getting too "Religious"....you know what I mean.
Thanks for your cooperation.

I think the only flaw with that is the last bit, She can't be GOD as She's a Woman and in the few times I've seen anything painted about GOD He's only depicted as Male(Sistine Chapel), Not Female.

Otherwise there'd be Female Priests(Officially Recognized that is).

We should, perhaps, remember that the prophet Mohammed himself married a 6 year old girl and consummated that marriage when she was nine.

Islam is, by the nature of it’s founder, profoundly misogynistic.

But then, every religion is.

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
