First of all. Jesus ascended into Heaven. There is no Body to collect DNA from. The Crucifix doesnt even exist anymore. So even if He did father a child there would be no way to make a connection to Christ. Religion is about faith. This stuff about a Documentary saying that there is proof that Christs Body has been unearthed is a Hollywood thing. It's James Cameron's way of getting on the Mel Gibson "Jesus" bandwagon in order to make millions. Hollywood is make believe. Understand that.

I have a different take on Islam in America at least since my new Doctor is a Muslim and we have many interesting conversations about our respective faiths. He comes from Uzbekestan. He tells me that most of his and many of his fellow Muslim brothers in that area had very close relationships with believe it or not, Jews. And also many Christians.

When he came to this country the first place his family went was to visit his Jewish friends in Brooklyn. He said he would never travel back to the Middle East because it has become a sewer of radicalism and he wouldn't feel safe. He said most of the troublemakers over there aren't even Muslim. They just pretend to be. Sad but true. All Religions are dificult to understand. But the fact is we all come from the same God. We all breathe the same air. No one is better than anyone else.

I am learning to be tolerant. But when you have countries like Iran causing so much hatred against anything they don't agree with, it's hard to continue to be tolerant. All religions and races have good people and bad. It's just that the bad ones get all the publicity. People would rather watch bombs going off on the news rather than hear a goodwill story about someone who saved someone from a burning building. I guess it's boring to be good. Know this. America will prevail and evil will be defeated on this planet. Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again. This is the Gospel which all Christians are obligated to pass on to others. I'm done bashing Muslims because I feel bad for the good ones who are being sucked into the grasp of Satan. Peace.
