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?
