Hmm... We should do that here in the US.

WTH? How is it offensive if it's true?

Since when have facts actually stopped people from herping and derping?

Sigh. Never.

Too bad there are no comments on the article. I wanted to see how outrageous the outrage would be.

Christians see Jesus and Islam in the same sentence, and if they're not separated by the word "better," they'll be outraged.

Really. Apparently those who are offended by this statement have never read the Koran.

"In Australia with its Christian heritage a billboard carrying the statement `Jesus A prophet of Islam' is provocative and offensive to Christians."

Would it also be offensive to put up a billboard discouraging crime?

Quite true. He is only second to Mohammed in their religion. Moses is on the same plane.

Allah has no children- but he has a few top notch prophets.

The truth is always offensive. It interferes with the cognitive dissonance we all live with.

I see what you caused to transpire in this area. :)


Also, now let's go do the opposite with some billboards in Saudi Arabia! In stead of being called provacative and offensive we could just be executed!

That would be awesome. And it should be put in KY on the way to the Creation Museum for maximum derpage.

This is the point I came in here to make.

According to dictionary.com (where I go for the most general, commonly-used definitions), a prophet is
"a person who speaks for god or a deity, or by divine inspiration." How does this not apply to Jesus? Are
these Christian suggesting that Jesus is not divinely inspired? I think that is more offensive to
Christianity. I'm guessing they just have no idea what is in the Koran.

It's only true for people who know anything about Islam.

This should be good.

Since when have facts ever mattered to the religious?

Buncha religious drama.

That said, Yes, it's true. Jesus is considered a prophet of Allah.

Yes, they see it as an honor.

And yes, it was meant to be provocative.

Educated men and women know that Christians consider Jesus to be the incarnations of God in the flesh. By relegating him to the status of only a prophet, they knew this would draw attention to their efforts.

No different than a billboard stating that Mohammad married a 13 year old.

Yes, very true, but also done with the intent to provoke.

Bad form.

Islam regard him as one of many prophets of God, but not his son. Some Hindus regard Chirst as as one of many prophets or a reincarnation of one as well.

Problem Christians?

Come to think of it, our Christians doth complain too muchly, perhaps we need to bring back the lions to remind them what real persecution is again?
 
2011-06-01 07:38:31 PM  
I always thought it was interesting that; deep down, where they'll never admit it; Islam, Judaism and Christianity are really the same religion. Just different interpretations on the same message.

Trolling christians is like finding pedophiles in America.

Too easy
 
2011-06-01 07:40:53 PM  
"trying to show to everyone that Islam follows the teachings of Jesus too"

Except for that new testament thingie, yeah. Exactly.

Plus one's a non-prophet

/NOT a christian, but the BS meter is topping out on this one.

Yeah. They all are related in the fact that it's all varying rehashes of Mesopotamian mythology.

Considering they worship the same deity, and the only real difference is which prophets they revere? Yeah, pretty similar.

If you want to watch a Moslem's head tilt, remind him that Jesus is regarded as a Prophet. Then recite Jesus' words when He tells the disciples that he is going to be killed and that He is the Son of God (not allah). Then ask them if Jesus is a false prophet.

To be fair, Christianity may have its roots in Judaism, but the whole 'Messiah', 'rose from the dead, had disciples, did miracles, died for the world' thing...

That was big all over the Mediterranean at the time. There were uncounted cults, all proclaiming the same thing with different Messiahs and such. But most of them were based off the mythology of Mithras, son of Ahura Mazda who pre-dates Christianity by some considerable degree.

Do some research

Moses: a prophet of Christianity.

It's true, I suppose, but an odd way to phrase it. Still, I doubt many Jews will take offense.

We'd mostly just shrug our shoulders, say 'that's wrong' and go back to make a living off the Fed's interests

Cpl.D: There's a LOT of fundie Christians over here, Tats, that think all Muslims are evil terrorists and go so far as to harass peaceful people.


so by pointing out that Muslims believe that yoshke is NOT the son of G-d, but rather completely human, that it's their prophet and that THEY have the right story on him will someone make Fundie xians feel better about them?

Did you really think that one through?

Not sure that some dude on youtube constitutes a citation, but its an interesting video (new window)

So there won't be an objection to a "Mohammed: A pedophile" posters?
