My sister said -
I love Loving people--there are many in many religions. I have a problem
with anyone who praises Mohammed-he was a killer, a torturer a
horrifying man, who also considered women less than goats. What
should I think of the muslim religion?!!! Your thought my dear friend? I
DO NOT have bad feelings for the blindly led into, born into muslims-i
just don''t have any of care in me for helping this religion survive. I wish
their beautiful children would drop the religion and learn GOD, LOVE. and
the women to take off their head sheets and hand them calmly to their
blind husbands for good. PHEW!!
My reply -
Hey beloved sister, I too have been, and remain troubled by the Muslim
religion, but objectively it is NO LESS TROUBLING than the Christian
Religion, or Judaism. WHAT!?!?!? EACH has massive tracts that are
HATEFUL!!! Genocide of the Native Americans was DONE IN THE NAME
OF CHRISTIANITY, HONESTLY - SO TOO SLAVERY, ETC, ETC, ETC!!!!
They HONESTLY cited scripture, chapter and verse to justify their hatred.
SO TOO DESERT STORM (the "Christians" (throw up) Bush Cheney,
Fundamentalists), Israeli operation Cast Lead - MASS MURDER, by "Jews"
in Israel last year - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFveAtnRCTM
And, they each have Godliness in them, and produce
extreme Godliness in others - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khan_Abdul_Ghaffar_Khan
- the Muslim "Frontier Gandhi, a Saint. That one MAY or
MAY NOT be MORE LIKELY to produce hatefulness or Godliness has proven
to be INSIGNIFICANT. OBJECTIVELY, MUCH MORE EVIL HAS BEEN DONE IN
THE WORLD IN THE NAME OF CHRISTIANITY, THAN IN THE NAME OF ISLAM.
As to the head scarves, to my shock, I find that INFINITELY more Godly
than the disgusting near-nudity, and slutty promiscuity that Western
Christianity now sanctions as "normal." Lust is the opposite of Love -
Lust, is me about me and mine; Love is about me about THE OTHER,
THE NEEDIEST. LOVE YOU, SL
ps: I'M SOOOO SORRY I can't be there
for you next week, and the week after. Know that I'm worried, and any
word of status to me would be a kindness. xxoo sl
pps: I KNOW you'll be
fine, but I'm worried none the less. :-( ♥
ppps: Regarding western sluttiness, promiscuity, my point is not to blame
women. My God, my lifelong LUST made me at least equally guilty. But it is Godless -
God is Love, Evil is LUST. xxoo sl (yes, Lust arguably was Created by God,
as was murder, genocide... that is "Create by" does not equal Godly. :-(
