Jesus was not the founder of Christianity. Paul never saw him but a just vision. Three children saw Virgin Mary in Fatima/Portugal 100 years ago. A big Church is built there. I am surprised they didn´t write a new version of Bible. Why not? Quran does not say whether Jesus was single or not. Let´s assume he was so. That means he can´t be an example for families, lovers etc. Priest has followed his path. Vatican has many problem with child abuse. The life of Muhammed is unique example for Muslims. He encouraged marriage to unite society. Do you see the difference? If getting married and having kids was not part of his mission why did he eat, drink, etc like any others?

This tells us God can eat but can´t have sex. What a false logic. I am sure he had normal like anyone else. Church advertise these false stories about his personal life. The life of of Jesus is mostly unknown. No historical evidence is available. Some believes he was a carpenter. As far as I know his people did not follow him and let him killed by Roman soldiers. Why do you think that he depended on the good will of other people? I don´t think so. Our messenger used to work, raise children. At the same time He completed his mission about Islam while leading his nation as a commander and statesman. Do you see some people do many things at the same time successfully? Our Messenger Muhammed (peace be upon him) is the greatest example for this kind of people. That´s why Arabs recorded all details of his life. His personal belongings can be seen in a museum at Istanbul which was the capital of Ottoman Empire. Christians are dying to find holly grail ? Vatican has its own copy the one having many jewels on it. Isn´t it too expensive cup for a carpenter? Who cares? God must use the most beautiful cup to drink wine. It is almost impossible to understand for me how people can believe such a fake stories. If you call leader as mass murderers etc. it is your personal opinion. Moses who was like Muhammed (peace be upon him) killed a man himself. Will you call him murderer? Do you see your false logic? If our messenger was working for power why did not he posses countless jewels? He doesn´t have any object like holly Grail. I think you should start criticizing your subjective knowledge about our messenger. Gingiskhan, Attila the hun are great leaders at their times but I don´t think nobody has followed their life style until now. But Muslims follow the foot steps of Muhammed (peace be upon him). That´s the difference. By the way Attila the hun was a Turk. Turks are now Muslims :-)
