Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Jesus and His Mother are Pure

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), May 14, 2008 at 02:59

I'll start from quoting you and then I'll add my reponse to it.:

"Mary the Mother of Jesus and Jesus are Pure, NO way they lie." Ow and basted on what do you conclude this?

"Not everything in the Bible is true. it was pure and perfect when it was revealed to our beloved Jesus." It was written after his resurection and actually were more or less the diary's and letters from 4 of his 12 closest followers, only 4?!? So it was never really pure and perfect, again on what do you base your findings?

"But later people added salt and Pepper on it. YES, They Change it." Why would they, unless those in power wanted to use it ti serve there agenda just like the Qu'ran was changed to serve Arab leaders there agenda. Still they didn't call it changed, they call it "Purified", or something...

"There are definately Muslims and large population who are well educated and able to manage their countries."

Really, where can I find those fundamental Muslims who do?

"It is a very sensitive issue, why the Muslims don't take command of their countries, It is highly political, and I do not wish to talk about it. Definately it is far beyond your thinking." Guess it's definilty bejond yours, patronizing while not being able to talk about it... It's not us who avoid the subject, you are.

'I for one is very highly educated, university educated and I know why we are not in control.'

Really then for starters as a high educated person it's "I for one AM very highly educated..." I never use education to prove knowledge or wisdom, all you say now is that you can memorize and have some knowledge about something. That you don't tell us why you think youre not in control is sad... you're not sharing knowledge here.

"Literacy rate is very high in some Muslim countries

Literacy rate in Jordan is 87% - Palestinians rate is 95% - Lebanon 85% - Syria 80% - UAE 80% - Kuwait 80% - Qatar 80% - Bahrain 89%" Where did you find these numbers? The CIA, The FBI or some where else? Trully you must have found these figures from somewhere? I'm not even checking there truthfullness Even if many Muslims can read and write for as long they only look at there own sides information, they'll still remain uninformed abouth the bigger picture.

"Now many hold university and high degrees - but as I said there is politics involved I don't want to go in details"

Sure, thank you for telling us... Euhm, your not going into details?
