    This whole thing is going from really bad to really worse bad. I know the English doesnt stand up to that .. but you get the point.

    Just remember that the muslim religion is a peace loving religion. They just want to be our friends. Just ignore those parts in the q'uran about convert or be killed. This is really just an attempt at bridging peace, to bring our cultures closer together.

    Don't go there; the Bible is full of that nonsense, too.

    So are you. Pleeaase. If you are speaking of the Old Testament, that is no longer effective, and had its purpose for the time. Christianity is radically different from Islam in that it does not require the whole convert-or-kill thing. In fact, if I do recall, it says something about loving one's enemies.

    My heart goes out to the family of our fellow American, Paul Johnson.

    I hope the Webteam will do something about this. If it weren't a request that would continue an inappropriate religious bash, I'd ask what "no longer effective" means. Did the Old Testament have an expiration date?

    At the risk of sounding petty, I'd like to say that ThNozzleman did start it. I can't just let a Christianity-bashing comment go by. It's obvious you're biased about the subject anyone. If the webteam has an issue about it, they will deal with it in an appropriate manner. I do not see any harm in discussing religious topics.

    When Jesus died, the old covenant that was covered in the Old Testament gave way to the new covenant. ThNozzleman may have been speaking of times when God required the Israelites to kill those who did evil. Perhaps he will be good enough to clarify his thought.

    Catrina, some good points. I was not going to respond, I don't like participating in religious disputes here. I do respect all people's right for "freedom of religion" rather than the liberal view of "freedom from religion". The christian religions (ambiguously stated on purpose) generally don't discount the old testament. They do teach though, that we live in the new testament era. Christian religions now are to live by the new testament laws, but review and study the old testament. These are differant rules to live by, in short because one took place looking forward to the promise, and one took effect after the promise was delivered. All I will say on the topic.

    The hell I did! Your arrogance is astounding.

    Oh? Maybe, you'd like to remind everyone what Jesus does to those who don't convert to Christianity. You remember, don't you? Something about a lake of fire...hell...eternal torture...all those loving concepts?
    When Jesus died, the old covenant that was covered in the Old Testament gave way to the new covenant. ThNozzleman may have been speaking of times when God required the Israelites to kill those who did evil. Perhaps he will be good enough to clarify his thought.
    Your Bible-babble amazes even me. You know what? I'm not even going to waste one more second with your ignorant and barbaric silliness.

    Heh...that IS funny. My main point is that those who live in glass houses should not go about tossing stones. Blasting all Islam based on the acts of a few is about like trashing all Christians, based on the acts of the KKK.

    It's amazing that people can't have a discussion without bringing the religion into it........

    Rest in Peace Paul Johnson........
