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.

In a way, Muslims are Christians. Jesus was a prophet who will come back again on judgment day. It's kind of Christianity-lite. Muslims listen to Jesus, but don't believe him to be God's son. However, Mary was a virgin when he was conceived.

I'm still trying to understand this. I've only been a Muslim since April.

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...

yeah, about that -

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.

taurusowner: Jamrock: taurusowner: Then you're not a Catholic.

Reading comprehension, son

I'm not sure what you're getting at.

Muslims believe Jesus was a prohpet
Christians believe Jesus is God, not just a prophet.
Poster claims that Muslims believe the same things as Catholics

That doesn't make sense. No they don't believe the same things.


Rockstone didn't say that catholics think the same as muslims. He said catholics don't think different of muslims than they do of any other religion.

This is where you messed up. OP never claimed this, you failed in your reading of his post. let's see what he originally said.

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.


Rockstone is saying that we (Catholics) regard Muslims in the same way they (Catholics) regard any other religious group

Now you can take this two ways. If you think Rockstone is a Progressive RC, which he prolly is as he speaks well of JP 2, then he is saying that Catholics, like all faiths and enjoy the dialogue between groups. But a regressive Catholic, or any snarky bastard on Fark, will point out that a "True Catholic" believes all non Catholics are going to hell, so Muslims are just the same as Lutherans.

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.


Ah, the Joy of Sects.
