in response to reader comment: Christian sects in the world

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), May 17, 2008 at 14:28

Our dear Samer who claims that he knows what the Qur'an really says in Arabic when he does not but he does not have the courage to tell us that he has no clue about what the Qur'an really says wrote

>Glad you mentioned this topic

Really? we shall see.

>How many sects do the Christians have and what would be the followers of each sect (Sects are counted in hundreds)

Not really. Christians are: Catholics, Protestants or Orthodox that is it

>Muslims have mainly two (Sunni and Shi'i sects), the other sects are either very small with hundreds of followers or some sects that are counted on Islam in fact they are not Muslims

No you do not. Mosques here in the West reflect the area of the world where those that attend the mosque come from. For example: Arabs will not attend Pakistani mosques as they do not know any Urdu and they will find such mosque to be very alien to them as religion is not just about praying it is also about food (if food is brought in for any occasion) and Arabs will have no like for Pakistani food and as for clothes Arabs think that Pakistanis look very strange with their shaved moustaches and big beards and shalwar qameez. they just look odd.

Other sects of islam? the 3alawis and the Druze and the Ahmadis and Sufis and the bahi'ees did I forget any?

>The Sunni are 1.3 billion while the shi'at are 150 million only

No it is 1.2 billion too many

>How many different type of christians is there in Saudi arabia.

I just told you

>IF the proposition is to mak a church for every sect who have only few hundred in Saudi arabia,

Good and let me see: then we should not allow the building a mosque that let us say serves only Pakistanis and another mosque that serves only Arabs as in the case of two mosques in Brooklyn

> then there will be churches more than mosques in a muslim country because the christian secs are counted in hundereds while the Muslims have only two main sects.

Good and I hope that every Muslim would abandon Islam forever
