ah, MUD's and Mushes.
Who said anything about your mother?
Read the article and the linked study. Complaints have been filed and the lawsuits are mounting.
Yet you just did.
If you are in favour of killing for bringing political change, there is not much to discuss. I named the two because they are most heard of when one speaks of revolutionaries. The OP is about Muhammad, not about revolution.
Right you can do both
".... in the name of their atheistic beliefs." Baloney. They killed people because they were totalitarian despots. Most Nazis were religious, BTW, as were most Japanese.
Mock him at your own peril. He will not be mocked. Although he is a bit embarrassed over the platypus thing.
You both missed and made my point.
Thank you, Lois. Yeah, in my first 28 years spent in Christianity, I knew Christians to be "just folks", running the entire spectrum of "normal human behavior" - not bigots, not child abusers, not overbearing Bible-thumpers, etc. Just regular folks, living, loving, being saints, being jerks, being family, being both community, as well as church, supporters, etc. Other than non-Christians who were abused by Christian parents, pastors, churches, etc., I think that many vocal Christianophobes have never really met "average" Christians. Their aggression and scorn seems in many cases to come from never having spent a lot of time among Christians.
Yea, its kind of a pinata of his own making that is being hoisted up to beat. Not a good impression of this "God" he speaks of. IMHO.
Pan is desperately clinging to a fantasy and refuses to acknowledge that he is wrong. I lived in Muslim dominated nations for over a decade - while in the service to my country! Pan wants to believe that I feared being captured and beheaded at every turn. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most Muslims I encountered wanted nothing to do with the radicals that were being targeted. It is no secret that most of our intelligence for taking them down came from those wonderful people. They are no different than the Christians who helped the FBI target white supremacists over the past fifty years in the United States.
What was preposterous about it?
"you would say I had interfered with free will."
A well-intentioned apology (e.g., "You are one of my best friends and I'm sorry that I didn't consider how painful it might have been for you to hear about my pregnancy, especially in mixed company.") might do wonders (although I don't think your friend did anything WRONG, sometimes people just need to hear the words "I'm sorry"). Then she could proceed with the above two comments. I would imagine they can work through it...
Melli, is there a reason you choose to act like this?
I did not claim that
tsk tsk tsk.
I doubt it will happen as you just pictured it. We've been talking about civil rights, not dictating personal opinions.
But, of course, you are not rational.
UnH0lygh0st. Let me remind you who you are. And who your Trump is....
"He sold a wedding cake for a dog wedding. That is a sinful thing."
I agree. I just hope that she tests the waters before she jumps in.
