WHAT ABOUT OUTRAGE WHEN JESUS SCORNED?

When I read things in the paper or hear something on the News that upsets me, I will write to the editor of our local New's Paper. Sometimes they print my letters, other times they don't.

The past week I have been listening to the News and reading the paper concerning Pope Benedict XVI's comments made about the Prophet Muammad and the reaction of the Muslim faith. First, it amazes me how angry Muslims get, when they keep trying to convince the world that they are a faith of Peace, now I have yet to see anything they do that tells me it is a faith of Peace? They burn dummys that look like the Pope or President Bush.

I watch the news and see women and children cheering on these cruel acts. Just this past week a nun was murdered because of what the Pope had quoted,even after an apology was given.

As I have listened and watched all this, I decided to write a letter to our Local News Paper and here it is....

What about outrage when Jesus scorned?

I am writing about how the Muslim faith reacted when Pope Benedict XVI cited the words of a Byzantine emperor who characterized some of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, Islam's founder, as "evil and inhuman." They took to the streets in such anger.

Why is it when Jesus Christ's name is lambasted in the most cruel way, the Muslim faith does not react at all? Is Jesus not a prophet to them also?
I wonder how they'll answer this?

Hello BG and all,

There is no truth without discernment and taking this situation out of context will never solve this world's problems. The straw that breaks the camel's back always follows the results of earlier deeds.

The Pope's choice of words was brain dead, in my humble opinion, if he was seeking to spread peace. He could have appealed for cooler heads and humility from all sides using any other words, but instead he chose to quote Crusade era hypocrisy that was clearly designed to inflame Muslims. Now we see the backtracking and spinning that always follows the gaffes of those afraid of simply telling the truth.

More proof that religion is the opposite of truth, wisdom, and justice

The "infallible" Grand Inquisitor (the pot) sought to lecture Islam (the kettle) about spreading religion through dark deeds by quoting a Dark Ages text while the USA and Europe are in the midst of the Neo-Crusades. The irony and absurdity in this situation is amazing, to say the least. It evidences both the fallacy and fallibility of those who vainly and arrogantly pretend to serve the Creator.

Dear Pope, ever heard of Karma or the golden rule? Ever stop to remember how the Vatican and western nations became so rich and powerful over the centuries? Ever consider giving up your blood drenched wealth and earthly power to end the blatant hypocrisy of your vain, materialistic, and duplicitous empire? Ever think of forgoing your peacock's robes to walk the walk instead of simply talking the talk? Remember the "eye of the needle" and "log and mote in the eye" parables? Is this a demonstration of your infallibility, wisdom, or utter blindness? As another wise one once said; What goes around comes around!

The West has killed far more Muslims (and other dark skins) than they have killed westerners, yet our leaders and many in the press can only see Muslim and "third world" desperation in the face of western military and economic dominance and oppression, (in the name of God and country, by the way), as sources of evil in this world. Never forget that there would not be a war in Iraq nor the Bush administration's many blatant evils without the unwavering support of such a large percentage of Judeo-Christians.

Guess what guys and girls, war, violence, and injustice are evil, no matter what the excuse or cause or who is doing it to whom. Anyone who thinks the Creator would judge religion, war, or any other profiteering at the expense of others as wise or acceptable activities has a very big surprise in store.

Here is Wisdom!!
...and here
...and here too...

Steve,

First of all I do not believe the Pope to be infallable or Holy. Only God is Holy. My point was that Islam is not a Religion of Peace and I will stand by that. Their reactions to most everything is not peaceful and should not be tollerated and for someone to try to justify it, well I find a big problem with it. Muslims have done their share of killing and a in the most inhumane way, take a good look at Sudan and other countries that have been brutally attacked by these terrorists in the name of their Allah. We are just beginning to see a mild form of what the Muslim faith is about, in the near future I fear for the world and what they have in store for it. All I can say to any one that does not know Christ, Today is the day for salvation and I mean for Muslims too.
