Spoken like a true fascist. I'm thinking you would really be at home in an angry, self-righteous, stone throwing mob.

You're pretty casual about killing people.

I see this as an example of the fundamental personal insecurity of Muslim boys. This behavior precludes their ever becoming men.

What does that remind me of? Some sort of group also appropriating the Jewish Patriarchs and Prophets and Kings, then adding another bundle of holy scripture. I think they called their bolt-on "the New Testament" or something.

As is the history of Christians converting mosques into churches. Such as what happened to the Mosque of Cordoba and dozens of other mosques on the Iberian peninsula.

which was the greatest Christian church for 1000 years before Muslims converted it into a mosque.
Well, apart from the little interlude when Roman Catholics on the Fourth Crusade besieged and then sacked Constantinople - including the Hagia Sophia, which was quite thoroughly plundered and desecrated - because the Greek-Orthodox of the Byzantine empire were the wrong kind of Christians.

Allah is a moon god -- which why they go out on their roofs and worship the moon during their top holidays and the reason for their symbol. There is nothing about moon worship with the God of Abraham. Nothing that would have people climbing to the tops of their roofs to dance to the moon light.

In Islam, women are nothing more than property, adultery is a property crime and the woman is damaged property nothing more which is why she gets death but the man who had sex with her does not. Married muslim men of course are allowed to have sex with unclaimed property, they can have many wives, concubines and sex slaves.

Jack Chick is not a reliable source, mmkay? The crescent symbol (and the Islamic penchant for astronomy) comes from the religion using a lunar calendar. (As does Judaism, by the way.)

As if that wasn't enough, the fact that Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews use/used the word "Allah" to describe god should perhaps have given you pause for thought.

I think someone has been telling you tall tales.

Be that as it may, there is nothing about taking communion having to do with the god of Abraham, either. Yet, there you have a billion and change Christians doing so, and still claiming to worship the deity of the Old Testament.

Putting Exodus 20:13 "Thou shall not kill" on the same level of seriousness as Exodus 20:14 "Thou shall not commit adultery". Ask your self why did GOD list this law of life right after the one condemning murder? Shouldn't adultery be a capital crime just like murder? Should we impose the death penalty?
