“The truth of the matter is the punishment for homosexuality is more severe in Islam than Christianity. In fact, Iran hangs them. Saint Paul of the New Testament said only to avoid them but nothing is said of killing gays.
As for the rest of the Old Testament's laws, they were only for the Jews at that time and not relevant to the Christian faith. The problem with so called Baroness Warsi, she didn't take time to know the difference. Series such as West Wing .. well it is just a series.. with not much research done and only for entertainment.”
“Really? While a huge number of muslims take the Quran word for word, the Old Testament is used as a reference for the historical background of Christ. Do Christians kill people for not observing the Sabbath? The Old Testament's laws were only for the Jewish people as they believe that they were the chosen people of God.”
“Because it was in the evening in a olive grove and those days they didn't have street lights, did they? I am sure those who came to arrest Jesus had to make sure they were arresting the correct person and Judas was already in the conspiracy. In any conspiracy, someone would have to confirm that the suspect was the one.. In modern terms, an arrest would have to be confirmed by being photographed at the station or a witness. So when he was arrested he was tortured and then paraded in front of the whole crowd by Pontius Pilate in his trial.. I am sure by now everybody knew who he was and the fact that thousands followed him everywhere to see his miracles and listened to his sermons. Yes, there were other prophets but they didn't do the miracles he did.. By the way, Pilate wasn't the king but a Roman general governing Jerusalem for the Roman Empire.”
“It goes without saying that since they recognised Simon the Cyrene who carried the cross for a while, it would be logical to think they were not so stupid not to know the difference between the Christ and Simon..common sense, mate. Such an important event like that and surely the High Priests made sure that the right man was crucified because they were ones who had conspired for months to get him arrested..”
“You mean the Roman soldiers were all drunk on that day and couldn't see who was being flogged and dragged to the cross? And all the people who lined the roads of Jerusalem were all drunk too.. LOL.. Roman soldiers at that time were highly disciplined men. You know what happens to soldiers who didn't do their duties well. They would have been crucified themselves together with the victims.”
“Peace in the spiritual sense. He wasn't a politician. Has there been peace eversince man appeared on earth?”

“Jesus position as messiah in the church is derived from the prophecies mostly of Isaiah. There is nothing about spiritual peace but it does clearly state that nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they no was anymore. It is peace in the real sense for all nations. It did not happen in those times or since.”

“Yes you said it; a spiritual peace that the world cannot give; a peace that your eternal salvation is guarded and the devil will not snatch you away.Of course in the Catholic faith many will be persecuted and run away losing their faith or many riches will come upon them and their faith is choked; some Catholic's faith will not be put in fertile soil and no good fruits appear? some seeds of faith will fall into thorns and disperse.God knows who are his and Christ said; his lambs will hear his voice and listen.”
“It is true that most muslim men would not tolerate marrying women who are more educated than themselves. They prefer virgins or girls who will obey them and stay at home and have babies. It is also true that highly educated muslim women find it difficult to find muslim men to marry as men prefer to marry those from their own countries who are not corrupted by western education.”
“Nope... Don't blame the ordinary people.. The media is doing it to sell sell sell. If the women are smart enough, they won't be fashion victims..
Where do you live? In the West? If it bothers you so much, then buy a ticket where you don't have to see any female flesh.”
