Rockstone: I'm a Catholic, and I'd like to point out that we don't think anything different of the Muslims than any other religious group. Note that Pope John Paul II prayed with Muslims.

/ I have talked to alot of the fundamentalists who are convinced that Muslims are evil. I don't understand why. Muslims are very devout, religious people who do believe Jesus was a prophet.


and if you get in their way, they will kill you.

Those fundamentalists also think that you can live an evil life but as long as you accept Jesus as the Son of God and your personal savior, you will go to heaven (see the "saved by faith alone" troll post above)... but virtuous non-believers are hellbound no matter how nice they've been. They don't like Catholics much either... except when it's convenient to fight against women's rights together. Their outlook is hopelessly twisted.

phrawgh: Me: God, can I ask You a question?

God: Sure

Me: Promise You won't get mad

God: I promise

Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?

God: What do u mean?

Me: Well, I woke up late

God: Yes

Me: My car took forever to start

God: Okay

Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait

God: Huummm

Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call

God: All right

Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?

God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that

Me (humbled): OH

GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.

Me: (ashamed)

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.

Me (embarrassed):Okay

God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.

Me (softly): I see God

God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.

Me: I'm Sorry God

God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.

Me: I will trust You.

God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, Thank You for Everything today.

God: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I Love looking after My Children...


I didn't know anyone still subscribed to this "best possible world" stuff after the holocaust.  11 million people massacred in order to prevent what?

ChaoticLimbs: Even if people put down their rifles just for one day on Christmas, there's no down side to Christmas in a war.

Correct. Christmas is a great day to mount an attack, what with everyone getting merry and all. It's an American tradition, dating from revolutionary war times, where George Washington crossed the Delaware river and attacked a bunch of drunken homesick German mercenary troops in Trenton. Peace on earth, goodwill towards men.....BANG.

Wow! Nice little fantasy where you get to make excuses for god. Let me try ...

Spirit of starving baby from Africa: God ... I did not have a good meal at any point in my life. I never knew my parents because they were murdered. The pain from my bloated stomach haunted me for my entire life. And, now that I am dead, I am sentenced to burn in hell for all eternity because I never heard of this jesus guy and the rules say that I cannot enter heaven except through jesus.

Then you're not a Catholic. And Muslims do believe different things. Part of Christianity is believing Jesus is God. I'm not being critical of you. You can believe whatever you want. But words mean things. They have definitions and set parameters. The primary parameter for someone calling themselves "Christian" (and Catholicism is a Christian denomination) is believing Jesus is God Himself. Not a prophet. That's just a fact.

I don't think you understood a thing that he said. I am also a Catholic and my only disagreement with Rockstone is that I don't regard all religious sects equally. I have a deep abiding hatred for evangelical protestant faiths.

God: Yeah. I gave you and everyone else in the world free will. I am now hands off and work less than one miracle (any divine intervention at all is a miracle) per year. So I didn't do anything nor allow anything to happen. Quite frankly your belief that you are so important that I should literally do multiple miracles a day to fix the most minor issues in your life is why you will never make it to heaven.

Me: Oh.

God: Also, you genuinely think you are able to talk with god when nobody can. So you are hearing voices and should probably check your self into the local nuthouse and get that fixed.

Me: True. Off to do that now.

Tribal association.

They don't know any Muslims.
Muslims tend to not look like fundamentalist Christians.
Other fundamentalist Christians, or people they like or agree with on other topics, who happen to look like fundamentalist Christians, are telling them Muslims are evil.

I'm automatically suspicious of religion, so I'm going to think it was simply a wily PR move by an oft-demonized religious community.

It is offensive to me as a non-religious person and I would think it would be offensive to religious people as well.

1) Why the fark did you send a death angel to my bed in the first place?

2) Why didn't you stop the drunk driver's car from starting? Surely that would have made more sense, since there must have been others at risk.

3) Why did you make that poor guy sick in the first place?

4) And yet you don;t step up to save the guys who are wrongfully imprisoned for years because of people bearing false witness?

5) Maybe you could have not sent me a faulty electrical product?

arentol: Shhhh. Don't tell anyone, but the Catholic church has worked on positive community projects with every major religion out there, and are willing to do so whenever the opportunity can be found. The Catholic church is actually probably the most open-minded Christian religion there is when it comes to accepting other churches as partners in doing good. Curiously enough though they actually have a harder time getting other Christians to work with them than non-Christian religions.


Well, they are NOW!
