You keep bringing up Christianity.


Well, specifically in the discussion between you and I, you asked about the difference between how christians and muslims view homosexuality. So we were both talking about christianity in that case as well as islam.

We didn't say support. We said sympathize with.

You dare not criticize it and you openly defend it, even when it engages in things far worse than anything we would do today or have done since ... well, I think the crusades is usually the default equivalence position of choice.

Make no mistake, this is the fruit of moral relativism. You draw the equivalence and make one look no better or worse. You have no direct comparison, not truly.


To add to your thought there ketsuko, if i may. Ah, the Crusades, that stigma that is pinned on Christianity which was a direct result of the barbaric practices and brutal advancement islam in the very first Rashidan Caliphate in 692 perpetrated by the muslims. All i can say is thank god for the Crusades, all nine of them.

I specifically asked another poster:

"Then what do you say about Islam's views of homosexuality?"

You replied:

"What is the official view Islam has of homosexuality?

What is the official view Christianity has of homosexuality? "

I merely answered your question, but you never answered mine.

All from biased well funded Left Wing sources.

Hard to confirm anything.

I hope you can actually post the full contents from the books cited.

Liberals basically like pointing out the hypocrisy of blindly following Christianity to the ends of the Earth as some kind of "superior" faith in the face of conservatives. It gets them all worked up and tweaked around.

Seems to be doing a good job I might add.

Hey, at least someone is admitting that spite has a whole lot to do with this. They attack Christianity because they enjoy getting Christians upset. It has more to do with that than "proving" anything to anyone, or (for most of them) accomplishing a sociopolitical agenda.

Hate and bigotry are the primary motivators. They take satisfaction in making Christians feel bad about themselves.

It's disgusting and shameful.

Men are separated from women in Mosque, not women from the men.

Secondly Muhammad said the most important person in life is your mother, the 2nd most important is your mother, and the third most important person in life is your mother, 4th is your father.

Women are not subservient via Islam, they're subservient via Middle Eastern practice much like the women in "Christian" Africa.

Quick question...

Does ANY religion have an "official" position on any of its tenements and doctrines?

I mean, there certainly are large factions within each major world religion ... but that's it, they're not a united cohesive entity. We have the Pope, but he's not looked on by Protestants as the leader of all Christians...we have the Supreme Leader in Iran, but not all Muslims pay him any attention.

Religion is spiritual in nature, and because its spiritual -- it's personal. Everyone is going to have a slightly different way of seeing their relationship with the God of their choosing. Each individual is going to come to their own personal understanding and interpretation of their Holy Book.

I don't know the answer to your question. I don't follow the teachings of Islam. However, my subtle point in asking those questions was to point out that depending upon who you ask you'll get the same answer for both of them.

This thread is based off radical right wing bias but you don't seem to be bothered by it any.

Nope. Once again you just don't listen to what liberals have to say and instead listen to your right wing propagandists and what they say liberals think. You want to know what liberals think??? Just ask one. Or just listen because they're telling you what they think all the time but you don't listen. Just like you're not going to listen to me right now.

I could spend hours pouring over your posts from across ATS, pointing out how you use Breitbart and other extremely biased right-wing sources on a continual basis.

I don't want to hear it dude.

And then you use Wikipedia yourself, and then turn around and claim my use of it is biased when I point out how you've misread the Wikipedia article? Oh wow...just...wow.

Projection...projection and deflection.

*eyeroll*

Awww. What's the matter little one? All of the sudden biased sources bother you? That's hilarious.

As well as that you were misled...

There is no Quranic punishment for homosexuality, it is merely labelled a transgression.


The only words that take it further are those of the Hadith.



But since the Quran explicitly states that it is complete & perfect, we have no obligation to follow the Hadith.


Those books are where this extremism is born.

So there ya go. I could have used your help earlier when another member was trying to tell me "what Muslims believe". Being that he is a Christian you can imagine it didn't look so good for the Muslims but the Christians sure came off looking good.

Being that I'm neither and have somewhat of a dislike for Religious Fundamentalism all around I tried to point out how similar both religions are in certain ways and how neither members of either side should be claiming anything about the other.

Yeah I was charging my phone and missed the threads most active moments.

But I don't discuss Christianity on these boards anyways, because it's none of my business.
If I refer to Christianity it's always in "inverted commas" just to show I don't actually think of these people as Christian.


You did a good job anyways.

So which right-wing propagandists do I get all my information on liberals from?

Surely you must know, if you're willing to levy the charge that I don't think for myself on the matter. I'm kinda curious myself.

It couldn't possibly be that I read what these people write day-in and day-out, could it? It couldn't possibly be based on my own experience and assessment, could it?

Well he should have worded it differently then because pointing out someone for being a hypocrite isn't the same as simply enjoying getting them upset. I explained this earlier when the same assumption was being made then.
