in response to reader comment: .A thug and wants to speak

Well Slayhy, You are are showing that you are the Ignorant one here.

I state very clearly that I do not believe the bible is the literal word of God, but it was inspired by God but written by man. Do I have to repeat every word I say or just use simpler words that you understand.

I do not believe the Jews are savages, and they are the most civilized and educated in that part of the world by far. I think that shows when the surrounding 500 million Muslims are all terrified of them like you obviously are.

I really doubt you have ever read the Bible, the Torah or any other religious texts, because if you had you would see how they differ to the primitive and unsophisticated Qu'ran.

If find it funny that the most recent ie the Qu'ran, also is the most backward. Most religious texts are usually socially progressive compared to the world in general they emerge from. They also develop and adapt as society progresses.

The only text that I can be seen as regressive, even within the social context it was written, is the Qu'ran. The Jews introduced the concept of one God and the Ten Commandments. Jesus brought us non violence, charity and love.

Mohammed brought us how to treat your slave, how women are evil and make up most of hell, and how to torture a Jew to steal his gold. How to rape as many women guilt free, and new levels of religious intolerance, murder and sexual perversion.

Where does Jesus say once it is OK to lie? Where does he say its ok to murder? Where does it say its ok to own slaves and rape women?

The Thug here is you Slayhy, you obviously take every opportunity to work in arcaic references to the old testament. Where you show that you are a thug is that you believe that Jews, well the rest of the world use the simplistic approach to their religion that you apply to yours.

Jews think, westerners think about their religions, we do not blindly follow(there are exceptions in the western world but they are a minority), we think. Our God wants his people to think and to be good. Your God just wants blind obedience.

The reason for you pathetic attempts to defend your primitive religion by attacking other religions, is that your religion is a religion of attack. It only attacks the weak and the defenceless.

Your religion does not prepare you intellectually to attack mine either. You assume I blindly follow and accept everything I read that is in my religious texts.

Why do you do that?

Well the answer is obvious, that is what you have been trained to do. My religious upbringing taught me to question, to think, to ask why is that?

Your religious trains obviously did not, you sound a very bitter and unhappy man.

Submitting....
