Freethinkers...

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: To Proudkafir

The logic that both are wrong doesn't really make it. There can be truth present, and indeed there is. If you rely only on yourself, as freethinkers do, you make yourself the creator of truth, and might miss the real truth when it comes along. There's nothing about Jesus that doesn't ring True God. There's nothing about Mohammad that doesn't ring false prophet. Mohammad distilled the hatred due to jealousy of Jacob being chosen and blessed by God, over his half-brother (illegitimate brother) Ishmael, into a political document that manipulated God's true word and twisted it for favor of the Ishmaelites.
