Amin Riaz, you' may be intelligent, but you are still ignorant

in response to reader comment: Am I really the only intelligent one?

Amin, unlike Muslims, who pretend they're righteous while raping little girls (like Muhammad himself with Aisha) and claiming to be a bulwark against homosexuality while Afghan Talebs sing songs in praise of young boys' peach-shaped bottoms, Jews and Christians recognize their own sins.

If you'd bothered to read the Old Testament itself rather than the idiocy that Ahmed Deedat and his imitators fob off as "scholarship", you'd recognize the disapproval of incest by Judah and Lot in Genesis, and that Leviticus 18 strongly forbids incest. Further, last time I looked at Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, the commandment against adultery was there.

And why should I take the Qur'an seriously at all, when it calls Mary Mother of Jesus the sister of Aaron, when they lived more than a millennium apart (Surah 19:28), and says the Jews take Ezra (Uzair) to be Son of God the way the Christians see Jesus (9:30)? I've lived around Jews my whole life (AND, while it's a pity they don't recognize Messiah, they are otherwise fine neighbors), argued theology with them, and read their books, and I can't find a single Jewish source to back up what the Qur'an says about their attitude towards Ezra.. Further, Surah 5:116 misrepresents the Trinity as God, Jesus, and Mary, when everyone has known from the beginning that the three persons in the one substance of the Godhead are the Father, Son (who became man in Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. No, Amin, Muhammad was an ignoramus and someone who falsely represented his neighbors' beliefs, and you seem to be continuing the tradition.

Also, about Jews as neighbors, when I was small, and a Jewish woman babysat me around Passover, she didn't so much as take a needle to prick me--despite what the whole Arabic and Urdu media screams about Jews using Christian children's blood to make their matzo (it's just flour and water, Bro). They don't even use ANIMAL blood.

And, if there's a lot about sacrifice (of animals) in the Old Testament, it's because it recognizes human sinfulness and the need for atonement. This, Christians say, was done away with because Jesus bore our sins and made atonement when he truly died on the cross (to which death by crucifixion/hanging the Pagan Roman Pliny and the Jewish Tractate Sanhedrin of the Talmud also bear witness). While we're at it, Jesus rose, body and soul from the dead, while you know perfectly well that the body of Muhammad lies in a grave in Medina, from whence he will rise to answer for his life along with all the rest of the dead on that day in which both of us believe.
