While my ex and I were dating, I read the Koran and she read the Bible. We did it to learn more about each other. It also helps to refute lots of the nonsense I still hear to this day. Her and I didn't work out, but I'm glad I read the book.


The Koran is nothing like the Bible. In the Koran, you are an eternal slave to Allah and commanded to murder all infidels and conqueror the world through war, rape, murder and genocide.

In God Word's, you are commanded to love your enemy as yourself, spread the Gospel and wait on Christ's return. Those who find salvation through Christ are granted eternal life as SONS of God and life as eternal, incorruptible Gods.

Those things are on dramatically opposite ends of the spectrum and about and different as it gets.

I used to say the same thing for many years.

I've come to realize its not religion in general that makes people uncomfortable, its talking about Jesus and the Bible that makes people uncomfortable.

If its a thread on Buddhism, Islam or some new age religion, no one gets uncomfortable. If Jesus and the Bible are the topic, people clam up and run for the hills.

Question it with all your soul. Question everything. But in the end you can’t rely on your own intellect to answer the questions. That is where faith is the only answer.

islam doesn’t require faith. Just a lot of cultish doctrine and ritualistic daily acts. Conform or die is central to islam.

Lolol I always love that response. "Turn off your sense of reason and ju$t believe u$".

It's much easier to believe the Bible than some welsh who is a proven liar.

Pretty cool. Such a diverse incoming congressional class.
Also way cool to be around a book that old.

How historically ignorant of you.....

I would bet she sees the point very well though.


Explain?


Anyway... 102 women, 38 Latinos, 53 african Americans, diversity of religion, and age. Pretty cool

And all bought, paid for, and beholden to the exact same set of corporations and lobbyists as all previous congresses.

You should study your history a little more before making statements like that. You guys go after Trump like rabid dogs for getting his history mixed up and turn around and post this.....

Explanation; Jefferson printed many copies of the koran (it is said the koran was the most printed book in America during his presidency) in hopes that Americans would read it to understand what we were fighting.
As far as this muslim swearing on the koran, it is incumbent on all Americans to understand the difference between the two. The Bible’s 10 commandments from God include not bearing false witness. The koran on the other hand teaches to lie to and deceive the infidel. If you are not aware, we are the infidel. So her swearing anything on the koran is a deliberate poke in the eye to all of us who love America. To use Jefferson’s copy is absolutely heretical.


Could not say it ever as well as you just did.

Solid troll. Lol.

Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli.

In a letter to John Jay, Thomas Jefferson wrote-

“The Ambassador (Ambassador Abdrahaman) answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Source- Wheelan, Joseph, Jefferson’s War- America’s First War on Terror 1801-1805, Carroll & Graf, 2004, pp. 40-41.

Bwahahaha.

But yeah, diversity and stuff

And now from your link, the ironic gut punch:

It’s important to me because a lot of Americans have this kind of feeling that Islam is somehow foreign to American history,” Tlaib told The Detroit Free Press. “Muslims were there at the beginning. … Some of our founding fathers knew more about Islam than some members of Congress now.”

Stephen Decatur

[Image: 000449_xgaplus.jpg]

Tradition has it that Britain’s renowned admiral Horatio Nelson described the recapture and burning of the Philadelphia as “the most bold and daring act of its age.” This audacious and successful operation led to Decatur’s promotion to Captain at age 25, the youngest person to attain that rank in the history of the U.S. Navy.

Lol. I love this stuff. Dumb democrats

You make this as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. +3

I’m with JR on this. Our educational system has let us down. I do not believe JD was trolling but rather just ignorant of history. With this being the state of our existence today, I believe we may not exist much longer.

Everyone should read this book

Excellent book. I was looking for it earlier in the week and couldn't find it. I've used it often as a reference to debunk some of the myths my liberal friends like to perpetuate.

Pretty cool?

Which part?

Women can't drive, clitoral laceration, stoning of women, or throwing gay people off roofs of buildings?

Maybe the destruction of historic landsites and monuments? Taliban style?

WITF is wrong with you people? good grief.

The difference is quite obvious. Christians don't follow those passages in the Old Testament now. The new Testament is the predominate guide to Christian life. Christianity moved away from the violent rhetoric and embraced the love and compassion of the New Testament.

No so much with Islam. It has its own version of old and new testaments. Unfortunately the violent testament is still followed by a huge segment of Muslims. Islam is still stuck in its violent past. Christianity has moved on from it.

Anyone with the capability of critical thought and rationality agrees with this.

Not according to the 10 Commandments. As a Catholic you should be aware and understand the concepts behind each. I had them drilled into my head.
