DC Area Professor To Catholic University: Too Many Crosses On Campus For Muslim Students To Pray

Anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, it’s American law that inevitably has to give way.

These demands for special accommodation are everywhere. Hertz, Heinz, Costco, IKEA, Target, Wal-mart, DisneylandMcDonalds and hundreds of others have all been in the cross-hairs. Islamic demands and the ensuing lawsuits in order to impose sharia (Islamic law).

This is exactly the pattern that I meticulously document in my must-read primer, Stop the Islamization of America.

If you don’t agree that there “are too many crosses on Catholic campus,” then you are a “hater,” an “inciter,” an “islamophobe,” a “provocateur.”

“DC Area Professor To Catholic University: Too Many Crosses On Campus For Muslim Students To Pray,” DC Gazete, May

It just got surreal.  George Washington University Law School Professor John Banzhaf filed a human rights complaint to the D.C. Office of Human Rights against Catholic University for hindering Muslim students’ free exercise of their faith due to the “excessive” amount of “Catholic imagery” on the campus.  It seems that this man – who teaches at a different school across town – thinks that Catholic University’s adherence to the cultural aspects of Catholicism (we have a lot of artwork, Crucifixes, and statues in every nook and crany) keeps muslim students from praying the required five times a day.

Banzhaf, who already has a pending lawsuit against the university over ending its policy of allowing mixed-gender dormitories and has a history of filing civil rights suits on such topics as childhood obesity and smoking, filed the complaint alleging that Muslim students are not given their own prayer rooms.

He alleges that the university, “does not provide space – as other universities do – for the many daily prayers Muslim students must make, forcing them instead to find temporarily empty classrooms where they are often surrounded by Catholic symbols which are incongruous to their religion,” according to the Tower, Catholic University’s student newspaper.

Just as an aside from a graduate of Catholic high school, at least, did Prof. Banzhaf not see the title of the university?  Did he not see the GIGANTIC church on the university property we know as the National Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception????  Oh, that’s right, it’s named in the complaint as a place muslims are “forced” to pray.  (We don’t do that in Catholicism.)  That basilica is, like, the flagship American Catholic church since it’s named for our national feast day even if it is NOT a cathedral, contrary to the complaint filed.  (No cathedra or bishop’s chair is in the building.  In Washington, that is in St. Matthew’s.)   What part of “Catholic” isn’t sinking in?  We’re into high art, Jesus hanging on the Cross, defending the separation of the sexes in dorms, etc.  It’s part and parcel of the deal when you attend Catholic school.

Across the board, the 60-page complaint filed by Banzhaf has officials at Catholic University and just about every other corner scratching heads.  First off, no muslim students have voiced concern for the issues of which Banzhaf writes.  Second, when members of other faiths are accepted at Catholic schools, their beliefs are not scorned or maligned in any way.  That violates Catholic norms of hospitality.  No one is required to pray with us.  That’s a private act, anyway, that Catholics are really supposed to do it more than five times a day.  Non-Catholics may not be specifically accommodated at our schools, but we Catholics would not request special treatment from schools of other faiths.  More or less, in this situation we are all guests in someone else’s house, and manners prevail.  Usually.  Anyone who has a problem with pictures of popes hanging on the wall, Crucifixes, statues of Our Lady of Grace, etc., can just go find somewhere else to go to school.

That the D.C. Office of Human Rights is even entertaining the complaint is cause for the big worry.

The complaint is absurd, writes Thomas Peters on the website CatholicVote.

“Can you imagine a law professor helping Catholic students to sue a Jewish or Muslim school to demand that the schools install crosses, remove their religious symbols, and allow the Catholics to construct a chapel on their property?” wrote Peters. “Can you imagine the argument being that Jewish and Muslims schools using their religious symbols and following their faith traditions would be described in the legal brief as “offensive”?!

“Normally I would have confidence that this lawsuit will be deemed without merit, but the way things are going these days, I just can’t be sure anymore. Simply incredible.”

At Breitbart, John Hayward warns that if Catholic University caves and creates space for muslims to pray their required five times a day, this will not be the only concession on the horizon.  He is correct in that even as the assault on religion continues, in order to maintain the true identity of faith – any faith – institutions of higher learning and the Church Herself will need to forgo tax exempt status.  It is the only way since the Church cannot and will not change.

At the same time, given that this is nowhere near the first time there have been complaints about Catholic art and culture being offensive, there may be another explanation.

“This attorney is really turning civil rights on its head,” [Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society told Fox News]. “He’s using the law for his own discrimination against the Catholic institution and essentially saying Catholic University cannot operate according to Catholic principles.”

A notion that has been put in practice in many walks of life.  Stay tuned.  Catholic sentiment is leaning more orthodox these days.  Abandoning the identity is not likely to happen without a big fight.

    Does anyone know when O’Reilly is going to show the results of his poll which asks the question, “Do you support the group American Freedom Defense Initiative mocking the Islamic religion?” Maybe I am overly sensitive – but I am just about tired of the complaints about too many crosses and killing for implementation of Sharia. It’s been a week since he launched that poll.

    • ridgerunner

      O’Reilly just avoiding giving the results saying they were too skewed in favor of the cartoons and could not possibly be true. Arrogant as Obama – O’Reilly cannot admit that HE IS NOT LOOKING OUT FOR THE FOLKS!!!!!!!

    • Gail Combs

      O’Reilly found out he really really blew it and is going to bury that survey and pretend he didn’t stick both feet in his mouth.

      I have seen very very few comments that are not supportive of Pam Geller and free speech.

      • ridgerunner

        O’Reilly is a Sharia enabler. He is not looking out for the folks.

        • Gail Combs

          Seems we have lots and lots of ‘Conservative’ Sharia enablers.

          But what do you expect when the Republican King Maker is Grover Norquist, who married to a Palestinian ‘Honey Trap’

          Pam said
          QUOTE
          … Samah Alrayyes, who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005, are very active in “Muslim outreach.” Just six weeks after 9/11, The New Republic ran an expose explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 — to show how Muslims rejected terrorism.

          Read all the posts in here by Jim seems he justifies Muslims using verses out of the bible

      • ridgerunner

        At the bottom of every O’Reilly poll it states………
        “These polls are not scientific. Only one vote per visitor per poll is counted by the system.”
        1) none of his polls are scientific……yet he touts them
        2) Only one poll per visitor is counted……nothing is wrong with this poll compared to “Reilly’s other polls.

        This is press controlling the narrative. Notice that no other media has conducted a poll???? The media – including Fox – is trying to control this narrative.

      HE HAD SOMETHING THE OTHER NIGHT didn’t hear no numbers though. every CHRISTIAN AND EVERY TRUE AMERICAN SHOULD PUT ACROSS IN THEIR YARD. AND AN ISRAEL FLAG.I am doing both.

      Hi ridgerunner,

      On April 27, 2014 the United Arab Emirates was declared number one in the world for treating women with respect, according to a major scientific study
      comparing development and well-being among all 132 nations of the world. UAE has successfully implemented Islamic Law.

      A lot of non muslims working in UAE in Oil and Gas Industries and muslim and non muslim respect each other.

      Beer, nightclub and porks are available everywhere for non muslim. At night time a lot of people went to parks for jogging in peace.

    This highlights the firm ideological comradeship between Islamists and the hard left. They are kindred spirits, going back to the days Hitler voiced full support for Islamists before WW2. Nationalist Socialism saw common ground with Islam even then.

    Note that two major points of history have been buried in lies and mythology:
    1) The Nazis were in fact Socialists

    2) most of humanity’s major atrocities were due to Islamist imperialism, including the Ottoman Empire and, yes, the Crusades, which were Europe fighting back against said imperialism.

    Joy, joy — maybe this is where I can voice that nagging question about Laura Ingraham. If she is Catholic, why doesn’t she wardrobe with the proper cross? Is it that the Muslims are using her — but can’t wiggle on down enough to the ‘idolatrous’ use of Jesus on that cross?

    What’s up with that?

    Believe me, I know of what I speak. Having all the flavors of Christian crosses within my family for judicious human consumption: Protestants (no Jesus), Catholics (yes, please), Mormons (no crosses! it is a symbol of Roman torture), …

    :)

    • NewCrusader

      You are wrong on this. Catholics may choose to wear either the cross with the corpus or a plain cross.

      • swpbbls

        Don’t get me wrong (I much heart my rosaries and crucifixes that have been gifted to me, being married only into the Roman Catholic Church, as opposed to being born into or willingly affiliated with it) — I credit these ‘love offerings’ for saving me from at least 3 vehicular deaths.

        That said, tradition means nothing anymore?

      • swpbbls

        I see… “tradition means nothing” within Sharia/Islam. Got it.

  • Patti York

    too many crosses on campus for muslims to pray,,,hmmm and that is somehow a bad thing?

    • Its considered idol worship! The same goes for everything else in the room such as ceiling lights, heaters, chairs, books, pens, pencils, calculators etc… Anything that is considered unIslamic!!!

      • Patti York

        who cares if they “can’t” pray. they are praying to satan anyway

        • They should double the number of crosses and double the number of the Ten commandments plaques as well!!!

          • Jim

            Hi albeit,

            90 Verses in the Bible say Jesus is not God

            All four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed

            are the peace-makers; they will be called sons of God.”

            The word ‘son’ cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God apparently
            addresses many of his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons.’ The Hebrews believed
            God is One, and had neither wife nor children in any literal sense. Therefore,
            it is obvious the expression ‘son of God’ merely meant ‘Servant of God’; one
            who, because of faithful service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his
            father.

            Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused this term.
            In

            their heritage, ‘son of God’ signified an incarnation of a god or someone born
            of a physical union between male and female gods. This can be seen in Acts 14:
            11-13, where we read that when Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey,
            pagans claimed they were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god
            Zeus, and Paul the Roman god Hermes.

            Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as ‘son’ are ‘pias’ and
            ‘paida’ which mean ‘servant,’ or ‘son in the sense of servant.’ These are
            translated to ‘son’ in reference to Jesus and ‘servant’ in reference to all
            others in some translations of the Bible. So, consistent with other verses,
            Jesus was merely saying that he is God’s servant.

            Additional problems with Trinity

            To a christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation and human
            suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words of Jesus. In

            contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in order to be able to
            understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the all knowing Creator of man.

            This is expressed in the verse:

            ‘And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people that are in
            Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; for I know
            their pains.’ (Exodus 3:7)

            God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive without
            any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God in sincere

            repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to humble oneself before
            God and be saved is made to all humankind.

            ‘And there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none
            beside Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God,
            and there is none else.’ (Isaiah 45:21-22, Jonah 3:5-10)

            Biblically, people can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentance
            sought directly from God. This is true at all times and in all places.

            There has never been a need for the so-called inter cessionary role Jesus plays
            in attaining atonement. The facts speak for themselves. There is no truth to
            the Christian belief that Jesus died for our sins and salvation

            is only through Jesus. What about the salvation of people before Jesus? Jesus’
            death brings neither atonement from sin, nor is it in any way a fulfillment of
            biblical prophecy.

            Christians claim that in the birth of Jesus, there occurred the miracle of the
            incarnation of God in the form of a human being. To say that God became truly a
            human

            being invites a number of questions. Let us ask the following about the man-God
            Jesus. What happened to his foreskin after his circumcision (Luke 2:21)?

            Did it ascend to heaven, or did it decompose as with any human piece of flesh?

            During his lifetime what happened to his hair, nails, and blood shed from
            wounds? Did the cells of his body die as in ordinary human beings?

            If his body did not function in a truly human way, he could not be truly human
            as well as truly God. Yet, if his body functioned exactly in a human way, this
            would nullify any claim to divinity. It would be impossible for any part of
            God, even if incarnate, to decompose in any way and still be considered God.
            The everlasting, one God, in whole or in part, does not die, disintegrate, or
            decompose: ‘For I the Lord do not change.’ (Malachi 3:6)

            Did Jesus’ flesh dwell in safety after his death?

            Unless Jesus’ body never underwent ‘decay’ during his lifetime he could not be
            God, but if it did not undergo ‘decay’ then he was not truly human.

            Bible says that God is not man

            ‘God is not a man’ (Numbers 23:19)

            ‘For I am God, and not man’ (Hosea 11:9)

            Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible

            ‘a man who has told you the truth’ (John 8:40)

            ‘Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and
            signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves
            know.’ (Acts 2:22)

            ‘He will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom He has appointed’
            (Acts 17:31)

            ‘the man Christ Jesus’ (Tim. 2:5)

            The Bible says that God is not a son of man

            ‘God is not a man nor a son of man’ (Numbers 23:19)

            The Bible often calls Jesus ‘a son of man’ or ‘the son of man.’

            ‘so will the son of man be’ (Matthew 12:40)

            ‘For the son of man is going to come’ (Matthew 16:27)

            ‘until they see the son of man coming in His kingdom.’ (Matthew 28)

            ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority’ (Mark 2:10)

            ‘because he is the son of man’ (John 5:27)

            In the Hebrew scriptures, the ‘son of man’ is also used many times speaking of
            people (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17;

            144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).

            Since God would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the son of a
            man, then becoming a human being who was called ‘the son of man’, he would not
            have done so. Remember God is not the author of

            confusion. Also, human beings, including Jesus, are called ‘son of man’
            specifically to distinguish them from God, who is not a ‘son of man’ according
            to the Bible.

            The Bible says that Jesus denied he is God

            Jesus spoke to a man who had called him ‘good,’ asking him, ‘Why do you call me
            good? No one is good except God alone.’ (Luke 18:19)

            And he said to him, ‘Why are you asking me about what is good? There is only
            One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.’
            (Matthew 19:17)

            Jesus did not teach people that he was God

            If Jesus had been telling people that he was God, he would have complimented
            the man. Instead, Jesus rebuked him, denying he was good, that is, Jesus

            denied he was God.

            The Bible says that God is greater than Jesus

            ‘My Father is greater than I’ (John 14:28)

            ‘My father is greater than all.’ (John 10:29)

            Jesus can not be God if God is greater than him.

            The Christian belief that the Father and son are equal is in direct contrast to
            the clear words from Jesus.

            Jesus never instructed his disciples to worship him

            ‘When you pray, say Our Father which art in heaven.’ (Luke 11:2)

            ‘In that day, you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever

            you ask of the Father in my name.’ (John 16:23)

            ‘The hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers

            shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to
            worship him.’ (John 4:23)

            If Jesus was God, he would have sought worship for

            himself

            Since he didn’t, instead he sought worship for God in the heavens, therefore,
            he was not God.

            Jesus worshipped the only true God

            ‘that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have
            sent.’ (John 17:3)

            ‘he continued all night in prayer to God.’ (Luke 6:12)

            ‘Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve’ (Matthew
            20:28)

            How did Jesus pray to God?

            ‘he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father’ (Matthew 26:39)

            ‘During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up

            prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him
            from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.’ (Hebrews 5:7)

            Who was Jesus praying to when he fell on his face?

            Was Jesus crying in tears to himself pleading to be saved from death? No man,
            sane or insane, prays to himself! Surely the answer must be a resounding

            ‘No.’ Jesus was praying to ‘the only true God.’ Jesus was the servant of the

            One Who sent him. Can there be a clearer proof that Jesus was not God?

            The Quran confirms that Jesus called for the worship of

            the Only True God:

            “It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship

            Him. This is a Way that is straight.” (Quran 3:51)

            Disciples did not believe Jesus was God

            The Acts of the Apostles in the Bible details the activity of the disciples
            over a period of thirty years after Jesus was raised to heaven.

            Throughout this period, they never referred to Jesus as God. For instance Peter
            stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed a crowd saying:

            ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a

            man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did
            among you through him, as you yourselves know.’ (Acts 2:22)

            For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God (confirmed in Matthew 12:18)

            ‘The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his
            servant Jesus.’ (Acts 3:13)

            ‘God raised up his servant’ (Acts 3:26)

            When faced by opposition from the authorities, Peter said

            ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus’ (Acts
            5:29-30)

            The disciples prayed to God just as they were commanded by Jesus in Luke 11:2,
            and considered Jesus to be God’s servant.

            ‘they raised their voices together in prayer to

            God. ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the
            sea, and everything in them.’ (Acts 4:24)

            ‘your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.’ (Acts 4:27)

            ‘of Your holy servant Jesus.’ (Acts 4:30)

            ‘I am indeed a servant of God.’ (Quran 19:30)

            The Bible says that Jesus was God’s servant

            ‘Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My soul is well pleased.’
            (Matt 12:18) Since Jesus is God’s

            servant, Jesus can not be God.

            The Bible says that Jesus could not do anything by

            himself

            ‘The son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he sees his Father

            doing.’ (John 5:19)

            ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:30)

            The Bible says that Jesus did not consider himself equal

            with God

            and that God performed miracles through Jesus & Jesus was limited in what
            he could do:

            ‘But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and

            glorified God, who had given such authority to men.’ (Matt. 9:8)

            ‘a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God
            performed through Him in your midst.’ (Acts 2:22)

            ‘he went about doing good and healing all who were

            oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ (Acts 10:38)

            If Christ was God, the Bible would simply say that Jesus

            did the miracles himself without making reference to God. The fact that it was
            God supplying the power for the miracles shows that God is greater than Jesus.

            Also, Jesus was limited in performing miracles

            One time when Jesus tried to heal a blind man, the man was not healed after the
            first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (Mark 8:22-26).

            Once a woman was healed of her incurable bleeding.

            The woman came up behind him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately
            healed. But Jesus had no idea who touched him:

            ‘At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from

            him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’ (Mark
            5:30)

            ‘He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands

            on a few sick people and heal them.’ (Mark 6:5)

            Quite obviously, someone with such limitations can not be God. The power of
            miracles was not within Jesus.

            The Bible says that at times of weakness angels

            strengthened Jesus

            God ,however, does not need to be strengthened. Human need to be strengthened;

            God does not because God is All-Powerful. If Jesus had to be strengthened, he
            must not be God.

            ‘An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him – in the garden of
            Gethsemane’ (Luke 22:43)

            ‘Then the devil left him; and behold, angels came and

            began to minister to Him’ (Mark. 1:13)

            ‘And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and he was
            with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to him.’ (Mark 1:13)

            The Bible says that Jesus wanted God’s will to be done

            ‘not my will but Yours be done.’ (Luke 22:42)

            ‘I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent

            me.’ (John 5:30)

            ‘For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,

            but the will of Him that sent me.’ (John 6:38)

            Are some members of the coequal Trinity subservient, and less than equal, to
            other members? Even though they have different wills

            (‘I do not seek my own will’), do they obey without question the others’
            commands (‘the will of Him who sent me’)? Jesus admits to subordinating his own
            distinct will, yet according to the Trinitarian doctrine they should

            all have the same will. Should one of the triune partners have to forgo his own
            will in favor of the will of another member of the Trinity? Should not they all
            have the exact same will?

            The Bible says Jesus regarded himself and God as two

            ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.’ (John
            8:17-18:)

            ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust

            also in me.’ (John 14:1)

            If Jesus was God, He would have not have regarded God’s testimony as separate
            from his own.

            The Bible says that Jesus is subordinate to God

            ‘Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head
            of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.’ (1 Corinthians 11:3)

            ‘When he has done this, then the son himself will be made subject to him who
            put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.’ (1 Corinthians 15:28)

            Bible says that Jesus grew in wisdom & learning

            But God is All Wise & does not need to learn: Jesus grew in wisdom, but God
            is all wise ‘Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is
            infinite.’

            (Psalms 147:5)

            ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom.’ (Luke 2:52)

            God does not need to learn, but Jesus learned: ‘Although

            he was a son, he learned obedience’ (Heb. 5:8)

            Jesus had limited knowledge, but god’s knowledge is

            infinite. Since Jesus did not know, he was not all-knowing, and therefore, he
            cannot be the God whose knowledge is all-encompassing.

            ‘No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
            son, but only the Father.’ (Mark

            13:32)

            Bible says that Jesus was tempted, but God cannot be

            tempted

            ’tempted in every way – just as we are’ (Heb. 4:15)

            ‘for God cannot be tempted by evil’ (James 1:13)

            Since God can not be tempted, but Jesus was, therefore, Jesus was not God.

            Bible says that Jesus’ teachings were from God, not from

            himself

            ‘So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent
            me.’ (John 7:16)

            Jesus could not have said this if he were God because the doctrine would have
            been his.

            Bible says that Jesus died, but God cannot die

            The Bible teaches that Jesus died. God cannot die. Romans 1:23 and other verses
            say that God is immortal. Immortal means, ‘not subject to death.’ This term

            applies only to God.

            Bible says that Jesus lived because of God

            ‘I live because of the Father.’ (John 6:57)

            Jesus cannot be God because he depended on God for his own existence.

            Bible says that Jesus’ powers were given to him

            ‘All power is given unto me.’ (Matt 28:18)

            God is all-powerful, no one gives God His powers, otherwise He would not be God

            because He would be weak. Therefore, Jesus could not be God.

            Bible says that Jesus was taught & commanded by God

            ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ (John 8:28)

            ‘The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.’ (John 12:49)

            ‘I have kept my Father’s commandments.’ (John 15:10)

            No one can teach God, otherwise God cannot be All-Knowing and would owe His
            teacher. Since Jesus was taught and commanded by God,

            Jesus cannot be God himself. The teacher and the student, the commander and the
            commanded are not one.

            Bible says that God made Jesus ‘Lord’!

            ‘God has made this Jesus both Lord and Christ.’ (Acts 2:36)

            ‘Lord’ is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are
            called ‘Lord.’ For example:

            1) property owners (Matt. 20:8)

            2) heads of households (Mark 13:35)

            3) slave owners (Matt. 10:24)

            4) husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)

            5) a son called his father Lord (Matt.

            21:30)

            6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26)

            7) Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt. 27:63)

            ‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word

            is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the
            Bible. If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would
            make no sense.

            Bible says that Jesus was lower than angels

            ‘But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels,
            namely, Jesus.’ (Hebrews 2:9)

            God, the Creator of angels, can not be lower than His own creation, but Jesus
            was. Therefore, Jesus was not God.

            Bible says that Jesus called the Father ‘my God’

            ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt.

            27:46)

            ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (John 20:17)

            ‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my

            God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev. 3:12)

            Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.

            Bible says that God cannot be seen

            But Jesus was seen by others ‘no man has seen God at any time.’ (John 1:18)

            Bible says twice that Jesus was accused of being God

            But he denied it: According to the Bible, on only two instances the Jews
            opposed Jesus on the basis that he pretended to be God or equal with God. Had
            Jesus, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, claimed to be God, he is
            likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.

            Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making
            himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied
            the charges. In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says
            immediately:

            ‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the

            Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19,
            30)

            In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in
            substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates
            gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself

            God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).

            This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.

            Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of
            himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’

            says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt. 11:25-27
            par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond

            professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found
            ancient documents concludes that:

            ‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son

            of God are later additions. what the church said about him. Such a claim of
            deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as
            we can reconstruct. For the first three decades after Jesus’ death

            Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism. The first three decades of the
            existence of the church were within the synagogue. That would have been beyond
            belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of

            Jesus.’

            Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.

            What did it mean? We first need to know the language of his people, the
            language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.

          Hi Patti York,

          90 Verses in the Bible say Jesus is not God

          All four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed
          are the peace-makers; they will be called sons of God.”

          The word ‘son’ cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God apparently addresses many of his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons.’ The Hebrews believed God is One, and had neither wife nor children in any literal sense. Therefore, it is obvious the expression ‘son of God’ merely meant ‘Servant of God’; one who, because of faithful service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his
          father.

          Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused this term.
          In their heritage, ‘son of God’ signified an incarnation of a god or someone born of a physical union between male and female gods. This can be seen in Acts 14: 11-13, where we read that when Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey, pagans claimed they were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god Zeus, and Paul the Roman god Hermes.

          Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as ‘son’ are ‘pias’ and ‘paida’ which mean ‘servant,’ or ‘son in the sense of servant.’ These are translated to ‘son’ in reference to Jesus and ‘servant’ in reference to all
          others in some translations of the Bible. So, consistent with other verses, Jesus was merely saying that he is God’s servant.

          Additional problems with Trinity

          To a christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation and human suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words of Jesus. In contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in order to be able to
          understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the all knowing Creator of man.

          This is expressed in the verse:

          ‘And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people that are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; for I know their pains.’ (Exodus 3:7)

          God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive without
          any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God in sincere

          repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to humble oneself before
          God and be saved is made to all humankind.

          ‘And there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none
          beside Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God,
          and there is none else.’ (Isaiah 45:21-22, Jonah 3:5-10)

          Biblically, people can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentance
          sought directly from God. This is true at all times and in all places.

          There has never been a need for the so-called inter cessionary role Jesus plays
          in attaining atonement. The facts speak for themselves. There is no truth to
          the Christian belief that Jesus died for our sins and salvation

          is only through Jesus. What about the salvation of people before Jesus? Jesus’
          death brings neither atonement from sin, nor is it in any way a fulfillment of
          biblical prophecy.

          Christians claim that in the birth of Jesus, there occurred the miracle of the
          incarnation of God in the form of a human being. To say that God became truly a
          human

          being invites a number of questions. Let us ask the following about the man-God
          Jesus. What happened to his foreskin after his circumcision (Luke 2:21)?

          Did it ascend to heaven, or did it decompose as with any human piece of flesh?

          During his lifetime what happened to his hair, nails, and blood shed from
          wounds? Did the cells of his body die as in ordinary human beings?

          If his body did not function in a truly human way, he could not be truly human
          as well as truly God. Yet, if his body functioned exactly in a human way, this
          would nullify any claim to divinity. It would be impossible for any part of
          God, even if incarnate, to decompose in any way and still be considered God.
          The everlasting, one God, in whole or in part, does not die, disintegrate, or
          decompose: ‘For I the Lord do not change.’ (Malachi 3:6)

          Did Jesus’ flesh dwell in safety after his death?

          Unless Jesus’ body never underwent ‘decay’ during his lifetime he could not be
          God, but if it did not undergo ‘decay’ then he was not truly human.

          Bible says that God is not man

          ‘God is not a man’ (Numbers 23:19)

          ‘For I am God, and not man’ (Hosea 11:9)

          Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible

          ‘a man who has told you the truth’ (John 8:40)

          ‘Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and
          signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves
          know.’ (Acts 2:22)

          ‘He will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom He has appointed’
          (Acts 17:31)

          ‘the man Christ Jesus’ (Tim. 2:5)

          The Bible says that God is not a son of man

          ‘God is not a man nor a son of man’ (Numbers 23:19)

          The Bible often calls Jesus ‘a son of man’ or ‘the son of man.’

          ‘so will the son of man be’ (Matthew 12:40)

          ‘For the son of man is going to come’ (Matthew 16:27)

          ‘until they see the son of man coming in His kingdom.’ (Matthew 28)

          ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority’ (Mark 2:10)

          ‘because he is the son of man’ (John 5:27)

          In the Hebrew scriptures, the ‘son of man’ is also used many times speaking of
          people (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17;

          144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).

          Since God would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the son of a
          man, then becoming a human being who was called ‘the son of man’, he would not
          have done so. Remember God is not the author of

          confusion. Also, human beings, including Jesus, are called ‘son of man’
          specifically to distinguish them from God, who is not a ‘son of man’ according
          to the Bible.

          The Bible says that Jesus denied he is God

          Jesus spoke to a man who had called him ‘good,’ asking him, ‘Why do you call me
          good? No one is good except God alone.’ (Luke 18:19)

          And he said to him, ‘Why are you asking me about what is good? There is only
          One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.’
          (Matthew 19:17)

          Jesus did not teach people that he was God

          If Jesus had been telling people that he was God, he would have complimented
          the man. Instead, Jesus rebuked him, denying he was good, that is, Jesus

          denied he was God.

          The Bible says that God is greater than Jesus

          ‘My Father is greater than I’ (John 14:28)

          ‘My father is greater than all.’ (John 10:29)

          Jesus can not be God if God is greater than him.

          The Christian belief that the Father and son are equal is in direct contrast to
          the clear words from Jesus.

          Jesus never instructed his disciples to worship him

          ‘When you pray, say Our Father which art in heaven.’ (Luke 11:2)

          ‘In that day, you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever

          you ask of the Father in my name.’ (John 16:23)

          ‘The hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers

          shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to
          worship him.’ (John 4:23)

          If Jesus was God, he would have sought worship for

          himself

          Since he didn’t, instead he sought worship for God in the heavens, therefore,
          he was not God.

          Jesus worshipped the only true God

          ‘that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have
          sent.’ (John 17:3)

          ‘he continued all night in prayer to God.’ (Luke 6:12)

          ‘Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve’ (Matthew
          20:28)

          How did Jesus pray to God?

          ‘he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father’ (Matthew 26:39)

          ‘During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up

          prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him
          from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.’ (Hebrews 5:7)

          Who was Jesus praying to when he fell on his face?

          Was Jesus crying in tears to himself pleading to be saved from death? No man,
          sane or insane, prays to himself! Surely the answer must be a resounding

          ‘No.’ Jesus was praying to ‘the only true God.’ Jesus was the servant of the

          One Who sent him. Can there be a clearer proof that Jesus was not God?

          The Quran confirms that Jesus called for the worship of

          the Only True God:

          “It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship

          Him. This is a Way that is straight.” (Quran 3:51)

          Disciples did not believe Jesus was God

          The Acts of the Apostles in the Bible details the activity of the disciples
          over a period of thirty years after Jesus was raised to heaven.

          Throughout this period, they never referred to Jesus as God. For instance Peter
          stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed a crowd saying:

          ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a

          man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did
          among you through him, as you yourselves know.’ (Acts 2:22)

          For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God (confirmed in Matthew 12:18)

          ‘The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his
          servant Jesus.’ (Acts 3:13)

          ‘God raised up his servant’ (Acts 3:26)

          When faced by opposition from the authorities, Peter said

          ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus’ (Acts
          5:29-30)

          The disciples prayed to God just as they were commanded by Jesus in Luke 11:2,
          and considered Jesus to be God’s servant.

          ‘they raised their voices together in prayer to

          God. ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the
          sea, and everything in them.’ (Acts 4:24)

          ‘your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.’ (Acts 4:27)

          ‘of Your holy servant Jesus.’ (Acts 4:30)

          ‘I am indeed a servant of God.’ (Quran 19:30)

          The Bible says that Jesus was God’s servant

          ‘Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My soul is well pleased.’
          (Matt 12:18) Since Jesus is God’s

          servant, Jesus can not be God.

          The Bible says that Jesus could not do anything by

          himself

          ‘The son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he sees his Father

          doing.’ (John 5:19)

          ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:30)

          The Bible says that Jesus did not consider himself equal

          with God

          and that God performed miracles through Jesus & Jesus was limited in what
          he could do:

          ‘But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and

          glorified God, who had given such authority to men.’ (Matt. 9:8)

          ‘a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God
          performed through Him in your midst.’ (Acts 2:22)

          ‘he went about doing good and healing all who were

          oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ (Acts 10:38)

          If Christ was God, the Bible would simply say that Jesus

          did the miracles himself without making reference to God. The fact that it was
          God supplying the power for the miracles shows that God is greater than Jesus.

          Also, Jesus was limited in performing miracles

          One time when Jesus tried to heal a blind man, the man was not healed after the
          first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (Mark 8:22-26).

          Once a woman was healed of her incurable bleeding.

          The woman came up behind him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately
          healed. But Jesus had no idea who touched him:

          ‘At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from

          him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’ (Mark
          5:30)

          ‘He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands

          on a few sick people and heal them.’ (Mark 6:5)

          Quite obviously, someone with such limitations can not be God. The power of
          miracles was not within Jesus.

          The Bible says that at times of weakness angels

          strengthened Jesus

          God ,however, does not need to be strengthened. Human need to be strengthened;

          God does not because God is All-Powerful. If Jesus had to be strengthened, he
          must not be God.

          ‘An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him – in the garden of
          Gethsemane’ (Luke 22:43)

          ‘Then the devil left him; and behold, angels came and

          began to minister to Him’ (Mark. 1:13)

          ‘And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and he was
          with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to him.’ (Mark 1:13)

          The Bible says that Jesus wanted God’s will to be done

          ‘not my will but Yours be done.’ (Luke 22:42)

          ‘I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent

          me.’ (John 5:30)

          ‘For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,

          but the will of Him that sent me.’ (John 6:38)

          Are some members of the coequal Trinity subservient, and less than equal, to
          other members? Even though they have different wills

          (‘I do not seek my own will’), do they obey without question the others’
          commands (‘the will of Him who sent me’)? Jesus admits to subordinating his own
          distinct will, yet according to the Trinitarian doctrine they should

          all have the same will. Should one of the triune partners have to forgo his own
          will in favor of the will of another member of the Trinity? Should not they all
          have the exact same will?

          The Bible says Jesus regarded himself and God as two

          ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.’ (John
          8:17-18:)

          ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust

          also in me.’ (John 14:1)

          If Jesus was God, He would have not have regarded God’s testimony as separate
          from his own.

          The Bible says that Jesus is subordinate to God

          ‘Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head
          of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.’ (1 Corinthians 11:3)

          ‘When he has done this, then the son himself will be made subject to him who
          put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.’ (1 Corinthians 15:28)

          Bible says that Jesus grew in wisdom & learning

          But God is All Wise & does not need to learn: Jesus grew in wisdom, but God
          is all wise ‘Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is
          infinite.’

          (Psalms 147:5)

          ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom.’ (Luke 2:52)

          God does not need to learn, but Jesus learned: ‘Although

          he was a son, he learned obedience’ (Heb. 5:8)

          Jesus had limited knowledge, but god’s knowledge is

          infinite. Since Jesus did not know, he was not all-knowing, and therefore, he
          cannot be the God whose knowledge is all-encompassing.

          ‘No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
          son, but only the Father.’ (Mark

          13:32)

          Bible says that Jesus was tempted, but God cannot be

          tempted

          ’tempted in every way – just as we are’ (Heb. 4:15)

          ‘for God cannot be tempted by evil’ (James 1:13)

          Since God can not be tempted, but Jesus was, therefore, Jesus was not God.

          Bible says that Jesus’ teachings were from God, not from

          himself

          ‘So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent
          me.’ (John 7:16)

          Jesus could not have said this if he were God because the doctrine would have
          been his.

          Bible says that Jesus died, but God cannot die

          The Bible teaches that Jesus died. God cannot die. Romans 1:23 and other verses
          say that God is immortal. Immortal means, ‘not subject to death.’ This term

          applies only to God.

          Bible says that Jesus lived because of God

          ‘I live because of the Father.’ (John 6:57)

          Jesus cannot be God because he depended on God for his own existence.

          Bible says that Jesus’ powers were given to him

          ‘All power is given unto me.’ (Matt 28:18)

          God is all-powerful, no one gives God His powers, otherwise He would not be God

          because He would be weak. Therefore, Jesus could not be God.

          Bible says that Jesus was taught & commanded by God

          ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ (John 8:28)

          ‘The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.’ (John 12:49)

          ‘I have kept my Father’s commandments.’ (John 15:10)

          No one can teach God, otherwise God cannot be All-Knowing and would owe His
          teacher. Since Jesus was taught and commanded by God,

          Jesus cannot be God himself. The teacher and the student, the commander and the
          commanded are not one.

          Bible says that God made Jesus ‘Lord’!

          ‘God has made this Jesus both Lord and Christ.’ (Acts 2:36)

          ‘Lord’ is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are
          called ‘Lord.’ For example:

          1) property owners (Matt. 20:8)

          2) heads of households (Mark 13:35)

          3) slave owners (Matt. 10:24)

          4) husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)

          5) a son called his father Lord (Matt.

          21:30)

          6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26)

          7) Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt. 27:63)

          ‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word

          is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the
          Bible. If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would
          make no sense.

          Bible says that Jesus was lower than angels

          ‘But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels,
          namely, Jesus.’ (Hebrews 2:9)

          God, the Creator of angels, can not be lower than His own creation, but Jesus
          was. Therefore, Jesus was not God.

          Bible says that Jesus called the Father ‘my God’

          ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt.

          27:46)

          ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (John 20:17)

          ‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my

          God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev. 3:12)

          Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.

          Bible says that God cannot be seen

          But Jesus was seen by others ‘no man has seen God at any time.’ (John 1:18)

          Bible says twice that Jesus was accused of being God

          But he denied it: According to the Bible, on only two instances the Jews
          opposed Jesus on the basis that he pretended to be God or equal with God. Had
          Jesus, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, claimed to be God, he is
          likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.

          Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making
          himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied
          the charges. In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says
          immediately:

          ‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the

          Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19,
          30)

          In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in
          substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates
          gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself

          God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).

          This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.

          Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of
          himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’

          says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt. 11:25-27
          par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond

          professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found
          ancient documents concludes that:

          ‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son

          of God are later additions. what the church said about him. Such a claim of
          deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as
          we can reconstruct. For the first three decades after Jesus’ death

          Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism. The first three decades of the
          existence of the church were within the synagogue. That would have been beyond
          belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of

          Jesus.’

          Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.

          What did it mean? We first need to know the language of his people, the
          language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.

          May God Bless You and Give You Guidance….Worship only one Almighty God

    In the West the Left is a bigger enemy than Islam.
    The Left nurtured, agitated, protected and coddled the Jihad. Covers for it now and basically uses Muslims as front line troops in their war against civilization.

    The Left pushes Muslim immigration. The Left prevents protection against terror and Islamization. The Muslims are basically pushing the very boundaries the Left points out to them and weakens for them.

    Cultural Marxism and self loathing have taken over our academia, media and even large parts of our culture. We are ruled by Marxist dogma and do not even realize it.

    These people want to be God for the rest of us (hence their hatred of the Church and the Jews) and act like religious tyrants of the past who blamed plagues on sin and earthquakes on sodomy. The Left blamed Pamela for the Garland Jihad. The Left blames cartoonists, free speakers . They want to destroy America and Western civilization. They use Islam as the battering ram….

    Needless to say Islam will kill them off as well. Yet they re so arrogant and self absorbed that they do not realize they re also building their own gallows.

    We are at war as Pamela often says.

    I say we are at many wars and the sooner we expose this evil alliance poised to ruin and exterminate us we will have a faint chance at saving all we hold dear.

    First of all Muslims don’t even belong in a Christian Church or to be praying to their god in one! imagine if Christians or Buddhist gave similar criticism and treatment to the Muslims and their Mosques? No this is stealth overt jihad against Christian churches and any christian church dumb enough to let Muslims come and pray in their church and have say in its activities is naive and deserves to suffer for this. Muslims or the American government have no rights or powers to (prohibit or establish a form of worship and its symbols.) this is another reason which blatantly shows how incompatible Islam and Muslims are with America and American citizenship, they cannot co-exist, peacefully already these so called moderate Muslims are showing their true colors complaining and filing suits against other religions because it offends theirs! well too dam bad!!! stay out of the Catholic church then and go find and build a Mosque, but do not attack others religious expression and symbols because it offends yours! that;s the way of the emotionally retarded and immature. that’s the way of the fanatic, on the contrary Muslims should be sued for interfering with the free expression of another’s religion. Muslims need to stay in their own Mosque and learn to keep quiet. their religion is not superior over all others and has no legal precedence either.

          Back in the 1980’s and 1990’s, a pizza take-out in our old neighborhood had a prominent behind the counter display of a large statue of Mary and some other religious objects. At the time, I merely thought it a little old fashioned. Also, a Thai restaurant we knew had a small shrine area in the back with Christian items and a picture of someone I took to be a king.
          As time has passed, and, have become more aware of certain realities of the world, I now realize that these merchants were 1) celebrating their freedom in the USA to be Christian, and to display any religious items they chose without penalty, and 2) they were letting their customers know that they were NOT muslims.

        On April 27, 2014 the United Arab Emirates was declared number one in the world for treating women with respect, according to a major scientific study comparing development and well-being among all 132 nations of the world. UAE has successfully implemented Islamic Law.
        A lot of non muslims working in UAE in Oil and Gas Industries and muslim and non muslim respect each other.
        Beer, nightclub and porks are available everywhere for non muslim. At night time a lot of people went to parks for jogging in peace.

          First, my ancestors were Lebanese Maronite Christians, oldest rite in the Catholic Church, predate the church in Rome. Built Carthage and spread civilization even to the America’s. Don’t believe everything in print. You are the very example that we as a nation, are in decline. You yourself need a tutorial on ancient history, to understand that we are watching the mad dash to anarchy and the decline of civilization world wide. Now you run along, and good luck on selling this package to some lacking any thought process. Personally, find you must first define the difference between fornication and pontification.

          • Jim

            Hi farlung,

            What is the religion of Jesus? Catholic Church was exist 300 before Jesus birth…Every Roman citizen was force to be Christian.

            90 Verses in the Bible say Jesus is not God

            All four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed
            are the peace-makers; they will be called sons of God.”

            The word ‘son’ cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God apparently
            addresses many of his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons.’ The Hebrews believed
            God is One, and had neither wife nor children in any literal sense. Therefore,
            it is obvious the expression ‘son of God’ merely meant ‘Servant of God’; one
            who, because of faithful service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his
            father.

            Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused this term.
            In their heritage, ‘son of God’ signified an incarnation of a god or someone born
            of a physical union between male and female gods. This can be seen in Acts 14:
            11-13, where we read that when Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey,
            pagans claimed they were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god
            Zeus, and Paul the Roman god Hermes.

            Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as ‘son’ are ‘pias’ and
            ‘paida’ which mean ‘servant,’ or ‘son in the sense of servant.’ These are
            translated to ‘son’ in reference to Jesus and ‘servant’ in reference to all
            others in some translations of the Bible. So, consistent with other verses,
            Jesus was merely saying that he is God’s servant.

            Additional problems with Trinity

            To a christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation and human
            suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words of Jesus. In

            contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in order to be able to
            understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the all knowing Creator of man.

            This is expressed in the verse:

            ‘And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people that are in
            Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; for I know
            their pains.’ (Exodus 3:7)

            God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive without
            any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God in sincere

            repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to humble oneself before
            God and be saved is made to all humankind.

            ‘And there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none
            beside Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God,
            and there is none else.’ (Isaiah 45:21-22, Jonah 3:5-10)

            Biblically, people can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentance
            sought directly from God. This is true at all times and in all places.

            There has never been a need for the so-called inter cessionary role Jesus plays
            in attaining atonement. The facts speak for themselves. There is no truth to
            the Christian belief that Jesus died for our sins and salvation

            is only through Jesus. What about the salvation of people before Jesus? Jesus’
            death brings neither atonement from sin, nor is it in any way a fulfillment of
            biblical prophecy.

            Christians claim that in the birth of Jesus, there occurred the miracle of the
            incarnation of God in the form of a human being. To say that God became truly a
            human

            being invites a number of questions. Let us ask the following about the man-God
            Jesus. What happened to his foreskin after his circumcision (Luke 2:21)?

            Did it ascend to heaven, or did it decompose as with any human piece of flesh?

            During his lifetime what happened to his hair, nails, and blood shed from
            wounds? Did the cells of his body die as in ordinary human beings?

            If his body did not function in a truly human way, he could not be truly human
            as well as truly God. Yet, if his body functioned exactly in a human way, this
            would nullify any claim to divinity. It would be impossible for any part of
            God, even if incarnate, to decompose in any way and still be considered God.
            The everlasting, one God, in whole or in part, does not die, disintegrate, or
            decompose: ‘For I the Lord do not change.’ (Malachi 3:6)

            Did Jesus’ flesh dwell in safety after his death?

            Unless Jesus’ body never underwent ‘decay’ during his lifetime he could not be
            God, but if it did not undergo ‘decay’ then he was not truly human.

            Bible says that God is not man

            ‘God is not a man’ (Numbers 23:19)

            ‘For I am God, and not man’ (Hosea 11:9)

            Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible

            ‘a man who has told you the truth’ (John 8:40)

            ‘Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and
            signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves
            know.’ (Acts 2:22)

            ‘He will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom He has appointed’
            (Acts 17:31)

            ‘the man Christ Jesus’ (Tim. 2:5)

            The Bible says that God is not a son of man

            ‘God is not a man nor a son of man’ (Numbers 23:19)

            The Bible often calls Jesus ‘a son of man’ or ‘the son of man.’

            ‘so will the son of man be’ (Matthew 12:40)

            ‘For the son of man is going to come’ (Matthew 16:27)

            ‘until they see the son of man coming in His kingdom.’ (Matthew 28)

            ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority’ (Mark 2:10)

            ‘because he is the son of man’ (John 5:27)

            In the Hebrew scriptures, the ‘son of man’ is also used many times speaking of
            people (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17;

            144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).

            Since God would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the son of a
            man, then becoming a human being who was called ‘the son of man’, he would not
            have done so. Remember God is not the author of

            confusion. Also, human beings, including Jesus, are called ‘son of man’
            specifically to distinguish them from God, who is not a ‘son of man’ according
            to the Bible.

            The Bible says that Jesus denied he is God

            Jesus spoke to a man who had called him ‘good,’ asking him, ‘Why do you call me
            good? No one is good except God alone.’ (Luke 18:19)

            And he said to him, ‘Why are you asking me about what is good? There is only
            One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.’
            (Matthew 19:17)

            Jesus did not teach people that he was God

            If Jesus had been telling people that he was God, he would have complimented
            the man. Instead, Jesus rebuked him, denying he was good, that is, Jesus

            denied he was God.

            The Bible says that God is greater than Jesus

            ‘My Father is greater than I’ (John 14:28)

            ‘My father is greater than all.’ (John 10:29)

            Jesus can not be God if God is greater than him.

            The Christian belief that the Father and son are equal is in direct contrast to
            the clear words from Jesus.

            Jesus never instructed his disciples to worship him

            ‘When you pray, say Our Father which art in heaven.’ (Luke 11:2)

            ‘In that day, you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever

            you ask of the Father in my name.’ (John 16:23)

            ‘The hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers

            shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to
            worship him.’ (John 4:23)

            If Jesus was God, he would have sought worship for

            himself

            Since he didn’t, instead he sought worship for God in the heavens, therefore,
            he was not God.

            Jesus worshipped the only true God

            ‘that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have
            sent.’ (John 17:3)

            ‘he continued all night in prayer to God.’ (Luke 6:12)

            ‘Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve’ (Matthew
            20:28)

            How did Jesus pray to God?

            ‘he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father’ (Matthew 26:39)

            ‘During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up

            prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him
            from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.’ (Hebrews 5:7)

            Who was Jesus praying to when he fell on his face?

            Was Jesus crying in tears to himself pleading to be saved from death? No man,
            sane or insane, prays to himself! Surely the answer must be a resounding

            ‘No.’ Jesus was praying to ‘the only true God.’ Jesus was the servant of the

            One Who sent him. Can there be a clearer proof that Jesus was not God?

            The Quran confirms that Jesus called for the worship of

            the Only True God:

            “It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship

            Him. This is a Way that is straight.” (Quran 3:51)

            Disciples did not believe Jesus was God

            The Acts of the Apostles in the Bible details the activity of the disciples
            over a period of thirty years after Jesus was raised to heaven.

            Throughout this period, they never referred to Jesus as God. For instance Peter
            stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed a crowd saying:

            ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a

            man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did
            among you through him, as you yourselves know.’ (Acts 2:22)

            For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God (confirmed in Matthew 12:18)

            ‘The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his
            servant Jesus.’ (Acts 3:13)

            ‘God raised up his servant’ (Acts 3:26)

            When faced by opposition from the authorities, Peter said

            ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus’ (Acts
            5:29-30)

            The disciples prayed to God just as they were commanded by Jesus in Luke 11:2,
            and considered Jesus to be God’s servant.

            ‘they raised their voices together in prayer to

            God. ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the
            sea, and everything in them.’ (Acts 4:24)

            ‘your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.’ (Acts 4:27)

            ‘of Your holy servant Jesus.’ (Acts 4:30)

            ‘I am indeed a servant of God.’ (Quran 19:30)

            The Bible says that Jesus was God’s servant

            ‘Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My soul is well pleased.’
            (Matt 12:18) Since Jesus is God’s

            servant, Jesus can not be God.

            The Bible says that Jesus could not do anything by

            himself

            ‘The son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he sees his Father

            doing.’ (John 5:19)

            ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:30)

            The Bible says that Jesus did not consider himself equal

            with God

            and that God performed miracles through Jesus & Jesus was limited in what
            he could do:

            ‘But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and

            glorified God, who had given such authority to men.’ (Matt. 9:8)

            ‘a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God
            performed through Him in your midst.’ (Acts 2:22)

            ‘he went about doing good and healing all who were

            oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ (Acts 10:38)

            If Christ was God, the Bible would simply say that Jesus

            did the miracles himself without making reference to God. The fact that it was
            God supplying the power for the miracles shows that God is greater than Jesus.

            Also, Jesus was limited in performing miracles

            One time when Jesus tried to heal a blind man, the man was not healed after the
            first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (Mark 8:22-26).

            Once a woman was healed of her incurable bleeding.

            The woman came up behind him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately
            healed. But Jesus had no idea who touched him:

            ‘At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from

            him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’ (Mark
            5:30)

            ‘He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands

            on a few sick people and heal them.’ (Mark 6:5)

            Quite obviously, someone with such limitations can not be God. The power of
            miracles was not within Jesus.

            The Bible says that at times of weakness angels

            strengthened Jesus

            God ,however, does not need to be strengthened. Human need to be strengthened;

            God does not because God is All-Powerful. If Jesus had to be strengthened, he
            must not be God.

            ‘An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him – in the garden of
            Gethsemane’ (Luke 22:43)

            ‘Then the devil left him; and behold, angels came and

            began to minister to Him’ (Mark. 1:13)

            ‘And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and he was
            with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to him.’ (Mark 1:13)

            The Bible says that Jesus wanted God’s will to be done

            ‘not my will but Yours be done.’ (Luke 22:42)

            ‘I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent

            me.’ (John 5:30)

            ‘For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,

            but the will of Him that sent me.’ (John 6:38)

            Are some members of the coequal Trinity subservient, and less than equal, to
            other members? Even though they have different wills

            (‘I do not seek my own will’), do they obey without question the others’
            commands (‘the will of Him who sent me’)? Jesus admits to subordinating his own
            distinct will, yet according to the Trinitarian doctrine they should

            all have the same will. Should one of the triune partners have to forgo his own
            will in favor of the will of another member of the Trinity? Should not they all
            have the exact same will?

            The Bible says Jesus regarded himself and God as two

            ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.’ (John
            8:17-18:)

            ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust

            also in me.’ (John 14:1)

            If Jesus was God, He would have not have regarded God’s testimony as separate
            from his own.

            The Bible says that Jesus is subordinate to God

            ‘Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head
            of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.’ (1 Corinthians 11:3)

            ‘When he has done this, then the son himself will be made subject to him who
            put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.’ (1 Corinthians 15:28)

            Bible says that Jesus grew in wisdom & learning

            But God is All Wise & does not need to learn: Jesus grew in wisdom, but God
            is all wise ‘Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is
            infinite.’

            (Psalms 147:5)

            ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom.’ (Luke 2:52)

            God does not need to learn, but Jesus learned: ‘Although

            he was a son, he learned obedience’ (Heb. 5:8)

            Jesus had limited knowledge, but god’s knowledge is

            infinite. Since Jesus did not know, he was not all-knowing, and therefore, he
            cannot be the God whose knowledge is all-encompassing.

            ‘No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
            son, but only the Father.’ (Mark

            13:32)

            Bible says that Jesus was tempted, but God cannot be

            tempted

            ’tempted in every way – just as we are’ (Heb. 4:15)

            ‘for God cannot be tempted by evil’ (James 1:13)

            Since God can not be tempted, but Jesus was, therefore, Jesus was not God.

            Bible says that Jesus’ teachings were from God, not from

            himself

            ‘So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent
            me.’ (John 7:16)

            Jesus could not have said this if he were God because the doctrine would have
            been his.

            Bible says that Jesus died, but God cannot die

            The Bible teaches that Jesus died. God cannot die. Romans 1:23 and other verses
            say that God is immortal. Immortal means, ‘not subject to death.’ This term

            applies only to God.

            Bible says that Jesus lived because of God

            ‘I live because of the Father.’ (John 6:57)

            Jesus cannot be God because he depended on God for his own existence.

            Bible says that Jesus’ powers were given to him

            ‘All power is given unto me.’ (Matt 28:18)

            God is all-powerful, no one gives God His powers, otherwise He would not be God

            because He would be weak. Therefore, Jesus could not be God.

            Bible says that Jesus was taught & commanded by God

            ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ (John 8:28)

            ‘The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.’ (John 12:49)

            ‘I have kept my Father’s commandments.’ (John 15:10)

            No one can teach God, otherwise God cannot be All-Knowing and would owe His
            teacher. Since Jesus was taught and commanded by God,

            Jesus cannot be God himself. The teacher and the student, the commander and the
            commanded are not one.

            Bible says that God made Jesus ‘Lord’!

            ‘God has made this Jesus both Lord and Christ.’ (Acts 2:36)

            ‘Lord’ is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are
            called ‘Lord.’ For example:

            1) property owners (Matt. 20:8)

            2) heads of households (Mark 13:35)

            3) slave owners (Matt. 10:24)

            4) husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)

            5) a son called his father Lord (Matt.

            21:30)

            6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26)

            7) Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt. 27:63)

            ‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word

            is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the
            Bible. If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would
            make no sense.

            Bible says that Jesus was lower than angels

            ‘But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels,
            namely, Jesus.’ (Hebrews 2:9)

            God, the Creator of angels, can not be lower than His own creation, but Jesus
            was. Therefore, Jesus was not God.

            Bible says that Jesus called the Father ‘my God’

            ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt.

            27:46)

            ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (John 20:17)

            ‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my

            God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev. 3:12)

            Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.

            Bible says that God cannot be seen

            But Jesus was seen by others ‘no man has seen God at any time.’ (John 1:18)

            Bible says twice that Jesus was accused of being God

            But he denied it: According to the Bible, on only two instances the Jews
            opposed Jesus on the basis that he pretended to be God or equal with God. Had
            Jesus, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, claimed to be God, he is
            likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.

            Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making
            himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied
            the charges. In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says
            immediately:

            ‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the

            Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19,
            30)

            In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in
            substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates
            gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself

            God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).

            This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.

            Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of
            himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’

            says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt. 11:25-27
            par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond

            professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found
            ancient documents concludes that:

            ‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son

            of God are later additions. what the church said about him. Such a claim of
            deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as
            we can reconstruct. For the first three decades after Jesus’ death

            Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism. The first three decades of the
            existence of the church were within the synagogue. That would have been beyond
            belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of

            Jesus.’

            Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.

            What did it mean? We first need to know the language of his people, the
            language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.

        There are more than 200 words of Sword in Bible and none in AlQuran.

        34″Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35″For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW;… Matthew 10:34

        Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man intimately. But all the girls who have not known man intimately,spare for yourselves. (Numbers 31:17-18)

        “I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence. (Luke 19:26-27)

        Now the house was full of … about three thousand men and women … And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord God .. strengthen me … that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes … and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew
        at his death were more than they which he slew in his life. Judges 16:27-30

        Women Abused In Bible :

        Women Shall Not Speak

        “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (I Corinthians 14:34-35)

        Women’s Sorrow

        “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Genesis 3:16)

        Comment

        Not only does the Woman get blamed for the Fall, but God decides to multiply her sorrow, plus, she must submit to her husband like a slave.

        Rip Up Pregnant Women

        “Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.” (Hosea 13:16)

        “Give me any plague, but the plague of the heart: and any wickedness, but the wickedness of a woman.” (Eccles. 25:13)

        Women in the Bible are considered evil

        “Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die.” (Eccles. 25:22)

        Wives, Submit Yourselves!

        “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.” (Ephesians 5:22-24)

        Wife Like Slaves ?

        Stone The Woman!

        “If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, and a man find her
        in the city, and lie with her;” (Deuteronomy 22:22)

        “Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall

        stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being
        in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou
        shalt put away evil from among you.” (Deuteronomy 22:24)

        Silence The Woman!

        “Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman

        to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam

        was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being
        deceived was in the transgression.” (I Timothy 2:11-14)

        Cut Off Her Hand!

        “When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth
        near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and
        putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: then thou shalt cut off
        her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.” (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)

        Female Births Get Penalty

        “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and
        born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days
        of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.” (Leviticus 12:2)

        “But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her

        separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and
        six days.” (Leviticus 12:5)

        Raping And Killing

        “Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined

        unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to

        pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives

        ravished.” (Isaiah 13:15-16)

        Birth of Woman Is A Loss

        The Catholic Bible states explicitly that:

        ” The birth of a daughter is a loss” (Ecclesiasticus 22:3)

        Woman Unclean for two weeks for giving birth to a female child as compared to
        seven days of a male child

        “…If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be

        unclean seven days…but if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two
        weeks…” (Leviticus 12:2-5)

        May God Bless You and Give You Guidance…Worship only one Almighty God without
        partners…follow the Greatest Commandment..

        Hi Nina Weil,

        George W Bush is the real terrorist,

        He kill 100,000 people include women, children and old man/women when he attack Afghanistan.

        He kill millions people include women, children and old man/women when he attack Iraq. Million of children died or malnutrition when he imposed sanction on Iraq for 12 years.
        May God Give You Guidance…worship only one Almighty God without any partners..

        • Nina Weil

          Got it wrong again, Jim. Bush gave Saddam lots of warning to surrender his WMDs for world safety. Then, with consent of Congress, Bush went into Iraq to remove Saddam and WMDs. Recently, US military actually found physical evidence that they had indeed been housed there.
          As for Afghanistan, Bush wanted to contained the terrorist elements in that area. He should have uprooted them. He didn’t.
          Now, we have a problem not the least of which is a spineless wimp in the White House.
          If you’re looking to find a terrorist in that area you need only enter the nearest mosque.

          • Jim

            Hi Nina Weil,

            Thanks for not denying George W Bush has killed millions of muslims include women, childen, old women and old man. Muslims are the most victims of his terrorist act..

            Everybody knows that US wanted Iraq cheap oil and to protect Israel. Until nowadays there are no WMD found and he has appointed weak and corrupted puppet government in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            Islam is the fastest growing religion in UK and Western countries.. there are currently 3 millions muslims in UK and Islam is spread in peace manner in UK and Western countries.

            A lot of non muslims working in UAE in Oil and Gas Industries and they earn good pay. Thanks for muslim countries that provide jobs for non muslim.

            Beer, nightclub and porks are available everywhere for non muslim. At night time a lot of people went to parks for jogging in peace.

    Well, seeing that the pope is the latest mooslim appeaser, the lawsuit may well be

      Hi Commieobamie,
      Bible said Jesus pray by bow his face to ground just like a muslim,
      Bible : Matthew 26:39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

          That’s about as solid as the muslima telling a group of innocent UK students visiting a mosque that the right to vote was granted to women in muslim countries before it happened in Britain.

      Hi,

      90 Verses in the Bible say Jesus is not God

      All four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed
      are the peace-makers; they will be called sons of God.”

      The word ‘son’ cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God apparently addresses many of his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons.’ The Hebrews believed God is One, and had neither wife nor children in any literal sense. Therefore, it is obvious the expression ‘son of God’ merely meant ‘Servant of God’; one who, because of faithful service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his father.

      Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused this term.

      In their heritage, ‘son of God’ signified an incarnation of a god or someone born of a physical union between male and female gods. This can be seen in Acts 14: 11-13, where we read that when Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey, pagans claimed they were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god Zeus, and Paul the Roman god Hermes.

      Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as ‘son’ are ‘pias’ and ‘paida’ which mean ‘servant,’ or ‘son in the sense of servant.’ These are
      translated to ‘son’ in reference to Jesus and ‘servant’ in reference to all
      others in some translations of the Bible. So, consistent with other verses,
      Jesus was merely saying that he is God’s servant.

      Additional problems with Trinity

      To a christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation and human suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words of Jesus. In contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in order to be able to understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the all knowing Creator of man.

      This is expressed in the verse:

      ‘And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of My people that are in
      Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; for I know
      their pains.’ (Exodus 3:7)

      God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive without
      any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God in sincere

      repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to humble oneself before
      God and be saved is made to all humankind.

      ‘And there is no God else beside Me; a just God and a Savior; there is none
      beside Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God,
      and there is none else.’ (Isaiah 45:21-22, Jonah 3:5-10)

      Biblically, people can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentance
      sought directly from God. This is true at all times and in all places.

      There has never been a need for the so-called inter cessionary role Jesus plays
      in attaining atonement. The facts speak for themselves. There is no truth to
      the Christian belief that Jesus died for our sins and salvation

      is only through Jesus. What about the salvation of people before Jesus? Jesus’
      death brings neither atonement from sin, nor is it in any way a fulfillment of
      biblical prophecy.

      Christians claim that in the birth of Jesus, there occurred the miracle of the
      incarnation of God in the form of a human being. To say that God became truly a
      human

      being invites a number of questions. Let us ask the following about the man-God
      Jesus. What happened to his foreskin after his circumcision (Luke 2:21)?

      Did it ascend to heaven, or did it decompose as with any human piece of flesh?

      During his lifetime what happened to his hair, nails, and blood shed from
      wounds? Did the cells of his body die as in ordinary human beings?

      If his body did not function in a truly human way, he could not be truly human
      as well as truly God. Yet, if his body functioned exactly in a human way, this
      would nullify any claim to divinity. It would be impossible for any part of
      God, even if incarnate, to decompose in any way and still be considered God.
      The everlasting, one God, in whole or in part, does not die, disintegrate, or
      decompose: ‘For I the Lord do not change.’ (Malachi 3:6)

      Did Jesus’ flesh dwell in safety after his death?

      Unless Jesus’ body never underwent ‘decay’ during his lifetime he could not be
      God, but if it did not undergo ‘decay’ then he was not truly human.

      Bible says that God is not man

      ‘God is not a man’ (Numbers 23:19)

      ‘For I am God, and not man’ (Hosea 11:9)

      Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible

      ‘a man who has told you the truth’ (John 8:40)

      ‘Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and
      signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves
      know.’ (Acts 2:22)

      ‘He will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom He has appointed’
      (Acts 17:31)

      ‘the man Christ Jesus’ (Tim. 2:5)

      The Bible says that God is not a son of man

      ‘God is not a man nor a son of man’ (Numbers 23:19)

      The Bible often calls Jesus ‘a son of man’ or ‘the son of man.’

      ‘so will the son of man be’ (Matthew 12:40)

      ‘For the son of man is going to come’ (Matthew 16:27)

      ‘until they see the son of man coming in His kingdom.’ (Matthew 28)

      ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority’ (Mark 2:10)

      ‘because he is the son of man’ (John 5:27)

      In the Hebrew scriptures, the ‘son of man’ is also used many times speaking of
      people (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17;

      144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).

      Since God would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the son of a
      man, then becoming a human being who was called ‘the son of man’, he would not
      have done so. Remember God is not the author of

      confusion. Also, human beings, including Jesus, are called ‘son of man’
      specifically to distinguish them from God, who is not a ‘son of man’ according
      to the Bible.

      The Bible says that Jesus denied he is God

      Jesus spoke to a man who had called him ‘good,’ asking him, ‘Why do you call me
      good? No one is good except God alone.’ (Luke 18:19)

      And he said to him, ‘Why are you asking me about what is good? There is only
      One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.’
      (Matthew 19:17)

      Jesus did not teach people that he was God

      If Jesus had been telling people that he was God, he would have complimented
      the man. Instead, Jesus rebuked him, denying he was good, that is, Jesus

      denied he was God.

      The Bible says that God is greater than Jesus

      ‘My Father is greater than I’ (John 14:28)

      ‘My father is greater than all.’ (John 10:29)

      Jesus can not be God if God is greater than him.

      The Christian belief that the Father and son are equal is in direct contrast to
      the clear words from Jesus.

      Jesus never instructed his disciples to worship him

      ‘When you pray, say Our Father which art in heaven.’ (Luke 11:2)

      ‘In that day, you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever

      you ask of the Father in my name.’ (John 16:23)

      ‘The hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers

      shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to
      worship him.’ (John 4:23)

      If Jesus was God, he would have sought worship for

      himself

      Since he didn’t, instead he sought worship for God in the heavens, therefore,
      he was not God.

      Jesus worshipped the only true God

      ‘that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have
      sent.’ (John 17:3)

      ‘he continued all night in prayer to God.’ (Luke 6:12)

      ‘Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve’ (Matthew
      20:28)

      How did Jesus pray to God?

      ‘he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father’ (Matthew 26:39)

      ‘During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up

      prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him
      from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.’ (Hebrews 5:7)

      Who was Jesus praying to when he fell on his face?

      Was Jesus crying in tears to himself pleading to be saved from death? No man,
      sane or insane, prays to himself! Surely the answer must be a resounding

      ‘No.’ Jesus was praying to ‘the only true God.’ Jesus was the servant of the

      One Who sent him. Can there be a clearer proof that Jesus was not God?

      The Quran confirms that Jesus called for the worship of

      the Only True God:

      “It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship

      Him. This is a Way that is straight.” (Quran 3:51)

      Disciples did not believe Jesus was God

      The Acts of the Apostles in the Bible details the activity of the disciples
      over a period of thirty years after Jesus was raised to heaven.

      Throughout this period, they never referred to Jesus as God. For instance Peter
      stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed a crowd saying:

      ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a

      man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did
      among you through him, as you yourselves know.’ (Acts 2:22)

      For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God (confirmed in Matthew 12:18)

      ‘The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his
      servant Jesus.’ (Acts 3:13)

      ‘God raised up his servant’ (Acts 3:26)

      When faced by opposition from the authorities, Peter said

      ‘We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus’ (Acts
      5:29-30)

      The disciples prayed to God just as they were commanded by Jesus in Luke 11:2,
      and considered Jesus to be God’s servant.

      ‘they raised their voices together in prayer to

      God. ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the
      sea, and everything in them.’ (Acts 4:24)

      ‘your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.’ (Acts 4:27)

      ‘of Your holy servant Jesus.’ (Acts 4:30)

      ‘I am indeed a servant of God.’ (Quran 19:30)

      The Bible says that Jesus was God’s servant

      ‘Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My soul is well pleased.’
      (Matt 12:18) Since Jesus is God’s

      servant, Jesus can not be God.

      The Bible says that Jesus could not do anything by

      himself

      ‘The son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he sees his Father

      doing.’ (John 5:19)

      ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:30)

      The Bible says that Jesus did not consider himself equal

      with God

      and that God performed miracles through Jesus & Jesus was limited in what
      he could do:

      ‘But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and

      glorified God, who had given such authority to men.’ (Matt. 9:8)

      ‘a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God
      performed through Him in your midst.’ (Acts 2:22)

      ‘he went about doing good and healing all who were

      oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ (Acts 10:38)

      If Christ was God, the Bible would simply say that Jesus

      did the miracles himself without making reference to God. The fact that it was
      God supplying the power for the miracles shows that God is greater than Jesus.

      Also, Jesus was limited in performing miracles

      One time when Jesus tried to heal a blind man, the man was not healed after the
      first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (Mark 8:22-26).

      Once a woman was healed of her incurable bleeding.

      The woman came up behind him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately
      healed. But Jesus had no idea who touched him:

      ‘At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from

      him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’ (Mark
      5:30)

      ‘He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands

      on a few sick people and heal them.’ (Mark 6:5)

      Quite obviously, someone with such limitations can not be God. The power of
      miracles was not within Jesus.

      The Bible says that at times of weakness angels

      strengthened Jesus

      God ,however, does not need to be strengthened. Human need to be strengthened;

      God does not because God is All-Powerful. If Jesus had to be strengthened, he
      must not be God.

      ‘An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him – in the garden of
      Gethsemane’ (Luke 22:43)

      ‘Then the devil left him; and behold, angels came and

      began to minister to Him’ (Mark. 1:13)

      ‘And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and he was
      with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to him.’ (Mark 1:13)

      The Bible says that Jesus wanted God’s will to be done

      ‘not my will but Yours be done.’ (Luke 22:42)

      ‘I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent

      me.’ (John 5:30)

      ‘For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,

      but the will of Him that sent me.’ (John 6:38)

      Are some members of the coequal Trinity subservient, and less than equal, to
      other members? Even though they have different wills

      (‘I do not seek my own will’), do they obey without question the others’
      commands (‘the will of Him who sent me’)? Jesus admits to subordinating his own
      distinct will, yet according to the Trinitarian doctrine they should

      all have the same will. Should one of the triune partners have to forgo his own
      will in favor of the will of another member of the Trinity? Should not they all
      have the exact same will?

      The Bible says Jesus regarded himself and God as two

      ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father.’ (John
      8:17-18:)

      ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust

      also in me.’ (John 14:1)

      If Jesus was God, He would have not have regarded God’s testimony as separate
      from his own.

      The Bible says that Jesus is subordinate to God

      ‘Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head
      of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.’ (1 Corinthians 11:3)

      ‘When he has done this, then the son himself will be made subject to him who
      put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.’ (1 Corinthians 15:28)

      Bible says that Jesus grew in wisdom & learning

      But God is All Wise & does not need to learn: Jesus grew in wisdom, but God
      is all wise ‘Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is
      infinite.’

      (Psalms 147:5)

      ‘And Jesus increased in wisdom.’ (Luke 2:52)

      God does not need to learn, but Jesus learned: ‘Although

      he was a son, he learned obedience’ (Heb. 5:8)

      Jesus had limited knowledge, but god’s knowledge is

      infinite. Since Jesus did not know, he was not all-knowing, and therefore, he
      cannot be the God whose knowledge is all-encompassing.

      ‘No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the
      son, but only the Father.’ (Mark

      13:32)

      Bible says that Jesus was tempted, but God cannot be

      tempted

      ’tempted in every way – just as we are’ (Heb. 4:15)

      ‘for God cannot be tempted by evil’ (James 1:13)

      Since God can not be tempted, but Jesus was, therefore, Jesus was not God.

      Bible says that Jesus’ teachings were from God, not from

      himself

      ‘So Jesus answered them and said, ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent
      me.’ (John 7:16)

      Jesus could not have said this if he were God because the doctrine would have
      been his.

      Bible says that Jesus died, but God cannot die

      The Bible teaches that Jesus died. God cannot die. Romans 1:23 and other verses
      say that God is immortal. Immortal means, ‘not subject to death.’ This term

      applies only to God.

      Bible says that Jesus lived because of God

      ‘I live because of the Father.’ (John 6:57)

      Jesus cannot be God because he depended on God for his own existence.

      Bible says that Jesus’ powers were given to him

      ‘All power is given unto me.’ (Matt 28:18)

      God is all-powerful, no one gives God His powers, otherwise He would not be God

      because He would be weak. Therefore, Jesus could not be God.

      Bible says that Jesus was taught & commanded by God

      ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ (John 8:28)

      ‘The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.’ (John 12:49)

      ‘I have kept my Father’s commandments.’ (John 15:10)

      No one can teach God, otherwise God cannot be All-Knowing and would owe His
      teacher. Since Jesus was taught and commanded by God,

      Jesus cannot be God himself. The teacher and the student, the commander and the
      commanded are not one.

      Bible says that God made Jesus ‘Lord’!

      ‘God has made this Jesus both Lord and Christ.’ (Acts 2:36)

      ‘Lord’ is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are
      called ‘Lord.’ For example:

      1) property owners (Matt. 20:8)

      2) heads of households (Mark 13:35)

      3) slave owners (Matt. 10:24)

      4) husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)

      5) a son called his father Lord (Matt.

      21:30)

      6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26)

      7) Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt. 27:63)

      ‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word

      is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the
      Bible. If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would
      make no sense.

      Bible says that Jesus was lower than angels

      ‘But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels,
      namely, Jesus.’ (Hebrews 2:9)

      God, the Creator of angels, can not be lower than His own creation, but Jesus
      was. Therefore, Jesus was not God.

      Bible says that Jesus called the Father ‘my God’

      ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt.

      27:46)

      ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (John 20:17)

      ‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my

      God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev. 3:12)

      Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.

      Bible says that God cannot be seen

      But Jesus was seen by others ‘no man has seen God at any time.’ (John 1:18)

      Bible says twice that Jesus was accused of being God

      But he denied it: According to the Bible, on only two instances the Jews
      opposed Jesus on the basis that he pretended to be God or equal with God. Had
      Jesus, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, claimed to be God, he is
      likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.

      Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making
      himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied
      the charges. In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says
      immediately:

      ‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the

      Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19,
      30)

      In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in
      substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates
      gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself

      God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).

      This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.

      Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of
      himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’

      says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt. 11:25-27
      par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond

      professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found
      ancient documents concludes that:

      ‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son

      of God are later additions. what the church said about him. Such a claim of
      deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as
      we can reconstruct. For the first three decades after Jesus’ death

      Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism. The first three decades of the
      existence of the church were within the synagogue. That would have been beyond
      belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of

      Jesus.’

      Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.

      What did it mean? We first need to know the language of his people, the
      language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.

            Hi farlung,
            Bible said women must cover their head,
            Bible said in Corinthians 11:6 But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved. 6For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head.
            Your virgin mary and nun in church also cover her head, just like a muslim lady.

          for treating women with respect, according to a major scientific study comparing
          development and well-being among all 132 nations of the world. UAE has

          A lot of non muslims working in UAE in Oil and Gas Industries and they earn good pay. Thanks for muslim countries that provide jobs for non muslim.

          Beer, nightclub and porks are available everywhere for non muslim. At night time a lot of people went to parks for jogging in peace.

          The global Social Progress Index also ranked the UAE as number one for the lowest level of violent crime, the lowest homicide rate, the lowest undernourishment rate, and the highest rate of enrolment in secondary education.

          The report was produced by a team of prominent international economists led by Professor Michael Porter of Harvard Business School, as part of an initiative launched by the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council.

    • Miriam Parker

      It’s a college, not a monastery or seminary.

      • Atikva

        It’s a Catholic college, not a marxist one, where (1) Catholic students would never enroll as a matter of common sense, and (2) even if they did, there wouldn’t be a professor arrogant or stupid enough to complain that there were too many images of the hammer & sickle to enable the catholic students to pray.

        The parallel with a muslim college can’t really be drawn because (1) there is none that could match an adequate level of education for the West and (2) even if there were, no “infidel” student would ever be accepted there.

  • jackkemp

    I am reminded here of the human interest stories about a rabbi who
    attended Notre Dame as an undergraduate. And Notre Dame actually had a
    Jewish quarterback a few years ago. Neither of them complained about the
    Catholic symbols on the campus. There is even a history of Jewish
    students at Notre Dame. http://www.archives.nd.edu/abo… Why is that and why can’t the Muslim students at Catholic University adapt a similar attitude?

    When my father was in the last part of his life, he spent three days under
    observation at the best palliative care hospital in NY, Calvary Hospital
    in the Bronx. Although my family is Jewish and I noticed the crucifix
    on the wall of his room, the last thought in my mind was to complain to
    people who were treating my dad with their charity about their religious
    symbols. A volunteer, a Protestant minister, actually removed the
    detachable crucifix from the wall of the room when he read my father’s
    chart. And I did not complain about all the Christian symbols in the
    lobby of the hospital or the Christian artwork.

    • Miriam Parker

      It was the students who complained. At the same time, religious freedom is an important cornerstone of American beliefs- and that includes all faiths or none at all. As an American, it breaks my heart to see Americans hate other Americans. What is clear is that most Americans are so entrenched in hatred for Islam that they do not take the time to learn anything about it.

      The word jihad most frequently used in the Koran is in the expression striving in the way of God (al-jihad fi sabil Allah). It also refers to the inner spiritual struggle to know god and to reflect that in all one does. It is also used to mean the struggle against the enemies of Islam, much the same as Christians defend Christianity. The only valid basis for jihad through arms is to end oppression when all other measures have failed.

      How many Christians enter a Mosque, an Islamic school or a Muslim bakery?

        Because since the Saudis and their ilk usually fund Muslim schools here, we are at an unfair advantage. They never have to allow “equality.” They take advantage of our system and use it against us.

    So ridiculous. If a Christian or Jew were allowed at all at a Muslim Educational Facility ( which they wouldn’t be allowed), they would be promptly shown the door if they even thought of praying to Jesus, or God let alone requiring a space free of Muslim prayer rugs to exercise their faith.
    This is getting beyond serious. The constant whining for what their rights, without them ever considering other religious rights and getting away with it has to be curtailed promptly.
    Sharia law is sneaking up on Americans and Canadians that let little things continue. People that believe in Sharia law are not abiding with the laws of the country they are in. They are only there to change laws. Wake up people. Get vocal and spread the word.

    My Letter to the Prof as follows:

    “Dear Professor:

    I write to you aghast at the article I have just read where you are suggesting that a Catholic School become more “Muslim-Prayer-Friendly”.

    This is after all…a CATHOLIC School we are talking about…right?

    We are hearing of this absurdness even down here in South Africa.

    I’m not a Catholic, but I find it ridiculous that this point-scoring, media-grabbing political correctness should even be considered a valid topic of conversation. You grandstand and expect tolerance for a system of religion that is by far the most intolerant in the world. The crimes against humanity and equality that are committed in the name of Allah are enough to make one wonder if we are truly an enlightened species entering the 21st century.

    I look forward to your similar indignation against Muslim Schools worldwide. I’m sure with your help, we could get a Christian Prayer Room installed in every one. Perhaps with your dedication to equality, we can expect you to lodge this complaint in Saudi Arabia or Tehran, global leaders in fairness and tolerance towards anything

    non-Muslim.

    I stand eagerly by and await your response.

    regards,

    Brandon Leigh.”

    This story is FOUR YEARS OLD. Nothing came of it. Nothing is happening. No action is being taken. No Muslims have complained. Read more: Read more: http://www.ncregister.com/blog/steven-greydanus/catholic-u-not-under-investigation

      The article refers to the one dated May 11, 2015 on the DC Gazette. And it clearly says that the complaint wasn’t not issued by muslim students, but by a professor who doesn’t even teach at the Catholic University (for obvious reasons).

      It is the second time the same professor is suing the same university (for a different reason), so your link possibly refers to the first one. In both cases, the University has to spend time and funds to respond to the complaint, whatever the results.

      This professional agitator is the embodiment of the Law Professor defined as “A lawyer who couldn’t, wouldn’t, or shouldn’t practice law”.

        Atikva: Did you read my link?

        The original source of this story about Banzhaf filing against Catholic University over lack of Muslim prayer space (yes, I am aware this was his second complaint against CUA) is not DC Gazette; it is an undated BeliefNet story from 2011.

        A Catholic University spokesman has confirmed that I am right, Banzhaf’s complaint is years old and nothing came of it.

        That BeliefNet story has recently been erroneously picked up by numerous sources, including Breitbart, Hannity and others.
