Text Tensions flared Friday evening at the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn as members of some Christian missionary groups — including one called the Bible Believers — taunted Arab Americans with a pig’s head and signs that promoted hatred of Islam.“You’re gonna burn in hell,” one missionary shouted at a group of young Arab-American boys listening to him speak on Warren Avenue, where the festival takes place.



Text Some of the signs the missionaries held read: "Islam is a religion of blood and murder" and "Muhammad (Islam's prophet) is a ... liar, false prophet, murderer, child molesting pervert


Well well well... Another example of a 'radical' christian group following the teachings of Jesus... Compassion, tolerance, respect and love... Ha!
It always amazes me when a group of people who are commiting their lives to hating others and shoving their own beliefs down others throats and tell people they are doing all this hate in Jesus's name! I mean seriously! Holding a pigs head and calling their god a child molesting pervert!?
Jesus is turning in his grave!!
Although they have the right to their opinion, it borders if not crosses the line of hate speech... Very sad how they have skewed the original values and teachings of the bible to justify this kind of harrassment and hate.

Thoughts?!

Spread the love eh???? Nothing against people who practice what they preach, but I highly doubt their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ would be proud of them for the spreading the hate and intolerance that they are doing!

One reason, church has become a four letter word in my dictionary!

You are correct they should have been trying to convert them instead of alienating them , Islam is a scourge on society with one goal to rule the world under sharia law . Shame on those Christians but there are always two sides to a story so we shall see what was what.

Islam is a Cult and not a religion. All the signs that these Christians were holding were true and accurate.

Hell will be full of these types of "Christians"


31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ 41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ 44 “Then they also will answer Him,[d] saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

These people claiming to be "Christians" need to take some time out and read their Bibles. This is really offensive, because of their horrible behavior towards those of another religion, and for using false Claims of being Christians to while they abused these people giving Christians a bad image in the process.


On a more humorous not I would encourage people to check out the other headlines on the site.....some of them are just way out there!

This reminds me of "Lord of the Flies." This "holier than thou" mob mentality is no good for god or anybody else for that matter.


“There isn’t anyone to help you. Only me. And I’m the Beast. . . . Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill! . . . You knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you? Close, close, close! I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are the way they are?” www.sparknotes.com...

SIGH, today's Christians... the complete OPPOSITE of their Jesus character.

And "todays Christians" are a LOT more BEHAVED than the ones of old, THANKS to LAWS that we have in place. Laws such as those that make it a CRIME to STONE and BURN people at the stake for not believing in nonsense or not being hateful superstitious fairy-tale believers like them.

Imagine having to live among them BACK THEN???

oh god.. I'm gonna step in it.. Islam is a cult.. and by definition so is christianity.. all 3000 plus denominations of it. Why you even bother comparing christians to muslims is beyond me; you people are all the same. If anything find a group that is truly different than you! I dont know.. maybe you can pick on rational people for once~

"Islamic extremist is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity."

Which is to say anyone can do violence and claim a religious belief however it doesnt mean they are following that particular religions teachings and it doesnt mean other people who consider themselves Christians even condone their actions. I knoiw I certainly dont. These ignorant people speak for themselves and no one else and they certainly dont represent God.

Apparently they failed to read the section where it states only God can pass judgement.

When I lived in Michigan I was not that far from Dearborn. It contains the largest Muslim population in the United States. A few years back the JEwish community held an event every year for the community. They would have food, fun while at the same time helping their neighbors and those less fortunate. It helped foster understanding since it was open to anyone.

One year the event, which the community came to enjoy and look forward to, fell on one of their Holidays. The dilema was how to keep the event without violating their religious beliefs. The Muslim community stepped up and volunteered to run the event that year so the JEwish community could enojy their religious holiday while the community could continue to enjoy the gathering.

Last I heard they still hold the event and it has turned into a joint event now, which I find awesome. I just wish it would get more media attention with the hope it might remind people that we are all neighbors regardles of race, color, nationality or religious beliefs and what occurs to one group of people affects us all.

For those who state Islam has violent passages in the Q'uran - I agree.
However, the Christian and Jewish, as well as many other religions, all have violent passages / rituals contained within so for one group to try and claim the moral highground is as hypocritical as it comes.

One of my favorite scenes from the West Wing -


Regardless of religion / beliefs, every single person on this planet faces the same fate - Death. I dont know about any of you but I would rather spend the time I have on this planet enjoying life, friends, family and diversity while living in the now instead of going out of my to piss people off on a daily basis thinking it will somehow matter after death.

Just my 2 cents.

The Romans had their chance
the Catholics
the Church of England ..

The problem I see is that Islam is in their militant growing stage but when the rest of Christian sects were conquering the world for God they didn't have nukes.....

i do agree with the Hypocritical comment here


Imagine this for a second , if you took a modern day Christian and put him back in time would he fit in ? i say nay ,

but if you took a modern day Muslim and put him back in that time would he fit in ? i say yay ,

because some of Islam's traditions are the same that they had back then , lets take praying for instance , did you know that early Christians used to portrait when praying back then ?

i am just trying to give a pointless example here , because it does not matter what you look like , it maters what is in your heart , however the reason Muslims wear their beards long and wear the type of cloths they do , is because prophet Mohammad PBUH said to fallow the sunna , and this would keep you off of the evil path , so they have these traditions and rituals in place , so that your mind constantly focused on ALLAH SWT (god) and it leaves no room for influence from any evil (or negative energy ) .

just some food for thought


humbly with love

what makes you think "they have nukes" ? and how can you claim that Islam is in a Militant stage ? not trying to negative here , i am just a realist here , i would like facts to support such a bold statement , keep in mind that the "Militant" sects of Islam and their are a few , but it does not represent the whole of Islam , the majority are citizens who are fighting against an invading force ,


so if we take this and categorically put religion with "nukes" and "Militia" then i would say something like " look at the majority of the USA and its Christian militia force invading and conquering to whom posses nukes as well "

sounds kind of lame ya ?

i understand your logic here , however your view is slightly flawed


humbly

very well , said my friend , i am glad that you put that into perspective , As a Muslim it really makes me feel good to see that you understand this and have witnessed this , i will tell you that allot of this happens in the USA , however it is never in the media , sad really .. i have a theory and it might be a little shady , i think its because the invading force acted on the words of "terrorists" together with that word the processed an image witch happens to be the Image of a Muslim , so in order to lead a war that image has to remain opposing in order to keep support

i feel that it used to be that way early on ,however i also feel that the image is fading out ,and making way for the Image you so humbly described .

and i thank once again for your contribution



humbly LSH
