Historically, Muslims and Christians have been very good friends (before the crusades they would have festivals together), so this isn't surprising. Still nice to see though.

Actually, they should have still been friends, until the Catholics from the Vatican decided, hey, lets go murder a million innocent people.

Yeah... it totally had nothing to do with the expansion of the Turks into Byzantine territory, or the Muslim conquests of Levant. Nope was totally all the Catholic's idea. ******* Catholics trying to defend thier peoples and allies, what assholes.

Dude Shia's are a Sub sect of Islam- Only countries with Shia Majority are- Azerbijan, Iran and Syrian Alleoites. Afghan and Pakistani Taliban are Sunni Muslims (Mostly Converts from the Islamic raids carried during the time of the crusades). Taliban is not Altair.

No they're not, If these are real, which I doubt they are, they might of come from a Hadith. Which the best way I could describe one to you is they are loosely like gospels only they could be from anyone in the Prophet's life ranging from his closest disciples to people that want to slander the prophet. Honestly so many Hadiths were recorded unless you had deep understanding of the religion or context you would easily misinterpret or even find a false one.

also one way to tell this is ******** is that in the Koran you'd find ways to live your life, not military strategy (see no mercy when winning line). And in the translations I've read The Koran doesn't tend to refer to Jews or Christians by name, it refers to them as "People of the Book" and from what the Imam at my mosque interpreted Islam doesn't view Christianity or Judaism as infidel religions since the three are from the same source (Abraham), It does view Polytheistic/ pagan religions as Infidels, so theres that

You are taking the lines out of context, picking them out whenever it suits your needs, without reading the whole Surah. Also, you are summarising the verse in a misinterpreted version.

Misinterpreted by your standards, but that begs the question, "Whose interpretation?" The fact of the matter, people will interpret texts to suit their own needs and try to get other people to believe their interpretation holds merit.

Take the Surah as a whole as oppose to cherry-picking lines.
Choosing specific lines and disregarding the context is how terrorists justify the use of violence against civilians.
Kind of similar to what you have just done.

No, that's wrong.
Muslims believe Christians and Jews to be of the same faith as them, as they are all descended from Judaism.
The only major difference being is that they believe that somewhere along the lines something went wrong, I don't know what the Jews did wrong, but I know that Jesus is a prophet to Muslims, though highly revered, he is not the Messiah.

That being said, Allah is simply the High Arabic word for God, meaning that all three faiths believe in God.

Not to mention you can't quote the Qu'Ran in English, as with translation, comes mistranslation. (that last part is from one of me Muslims friends)

Actually, whilst they may be half-truths (I don't know the specific passages he's 'quoting' there) he's not wrong that the Quran is full of hate-filled supremacist commandments. The Bible has them too.

However I'd like to think we've progressed as a species to the point where 1600 year-old documents aren't considered the centre of all knowledge (hence why progressive Muslims/Christians like good old Mr. Rogers existed. If there is a God I hope I get to meet Mr. Rogers on the other side.)

I'll take it, I'll take it all! I'm not even mad. And don't even assume I'm pro-Christian where God attacks the Tower of Babel simply because human unite; gets mad at Joshua for not slaughtering man, woman, child, and animal; and throws his loyalist servant Job under the bus for a show of power. "Religious group getting their **** together"? The only progress made in religion is when they depart from their texts. Could someone live by a literal interpretation of either book? No, of course not, that's why interpretation is so vital, but who has authority over interpretation? If rationality is not currency of the realm, what's to stop the 9/11's, crusades, Westboro Baptists Churches, etc.? You don't need religion to justify good people doing good things; however, you do need it to justify good people doing bad things. So gimme the reds, and that's an order.

The IRA are not terrorists. The British government deemed them terrorists for fighting for their own country and proceeded to harass civilians and imprison them without trial in concentration camps, since they were imprisoned under the special powers act which stated that they were to arrest IRA members they requested prisoner of war rights but were denied and a series of physical and psychological torture. If you're going to call them terrorists at least look at the terrorist acts they fought against. Also if you think the British are right in this look up Bloody Sunday. Sorry for ranting.

Sorry but anon is right. Only certain sections of the IRA can be considered terrorists in other people's eyes.

When the Irish Republican Army was formed, the country was under British rule. Politics had failed. The army was formed as a means to reclaim a country that had been taken from the people of the country. The acts that were committed by the British at this time can also be constituted as acts of terror by the people who they were committed against. So it's more or less a matter of perspective.

Americans of the American Revolution probably practiced guerrilla warfare which can be considered a military tactic by some or terrorism by others.

This is how the relationship between Christians and Muslims really are in the middle east. I know I might get a lot of hate for this but I don't care. People tend to forget that war brings out the best, but more commonly the worst of people. A few individuals take advantage of the chaos to push their own hateful agenda's. The hateful comments against Muslims accomplishes nothing. I have spent a lot of time in the middle east and you would be surprised how bias the media is these days.

The national news in here captioned some Japanese people in 2011's and they talked about how they were devastated, they had lost everything and thought their lives would never be the same. I happen to be studying Japanese. I showed the video to my teacher. The old man was just saying "I can't go to work and my bath is destroyed". They even cut the video in the middle of a sentence. Never trust TV.

Exactly. I especially am annoyed by the fact that most people know the media is bias but still take their word as fact.

Aaaaand then the Muslims burnt down the church and eradicated the inhabitants because they are infidels.

Right, because the government is Christian, and Christians in Egypt are the aggressors towards the Muslim people of Egypt, and the people "at large" are not responsible for their actions and even thinking that a MILITARY regime could possibly not only be one religious affiliation?

i'm just saying, every religion has been protested against. just because a few muslims burned down 60+ churches doesnt mean all the muslims are bad.

Not those Muslims protecting the church, but members of the Islamic brotherhood, which are not considered real muslims by the peaceful ones. I just came from egypt, and every day the news updates on how the army is further eradicating the muslim brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist organization in Egypt. So dont generalize. It wouldnt be cool of you had a photo of a funeral for a Muslim US soldier, and I said, "aaaannd then the Christians picketed and protested the funeral and said God hates fags."

Yes, because of the assholes Muslim Brotherhood which got protested out of power. Most Muslims in Egypt hate them and they also burnt down a few Mosques too. Don't be biased and actually know what's going on from somewhere other than the media.

You don't seem to understand. They are aren't both subdivisions. Only Catholicism is a subdivision. You're probably thinking of the difference between Catholicism and the other denominations, such as Baptism, Mormonism, etc. They're all types of Christianity. In fact Catholicism is one of the oldest denominations of Christianity.

Catholicism isn't Christianity.
Christianity started with Jesus's disciples at Pentecost after Jesus's death.
Catholicism started in Rome when Emperor Constantine wanted to bring more revenue into the Roman empire so he combined Christianity with Paganism and some Roman beliefs so they could say "Oh, look, we have all the same beliefs as you, come give us all your gold and silver."
That is all.

No, Roman Catholicism started in Rome, Catholicism is simply the name given to the Christians when they split, the problem is that Catholicism split almost evenly between the Roman Catholics and the Orthodox Christians.

wow you are ignorant as ****.

technically speaking, orthodoxy is the oldest form of christianity. catholicism truly began in the early 1000s when the pope of the time (then known as the patriarch of rome) split from the rest of the reigning pentarchy (constantinople, jerusalem, alexandria, and antioch) due to a dispute over which pentarch should be the head pentarch (was between rome and constantinople). the pope left, declared himself the head of christendom and took western europe with him. catholicism later incorporated ideas and traditions from european pagans to make it easier to convert pagans.

all constantine did was convert to christianity, move the roman capital to byzantium, which was renamed to constantinople, and made christianity popular.

Almost as old as Orthodox, it was the Catholics and the Orthodox Christians that had the Great Eastern Schism in about 234 when they couldn't' agree with the Nicene Treaty.
This lead to much of the Middle East and Eastern Europe being Orthodox (Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, etc) and Western Europe being Catholic until Martin Luther came around, created Protestantism, which separated mostly North-South.
And since then Protestants have numerous denominations, Mormon, Presbyterian, Baptist, Anglican, etc.

the Eastern Orthodox Church was a split from the Catholic Church. the Catholic Church is older.

Yes and no.
Technically it is Catholic, but not Roman Catholic, the Roman Catholic church is what most people think of when you say Catholic, they are younger than the Orthodox Christians, but Catholicism as a whole is older, it's hard to explain, because technically the Orthodox church has the oldest traditions, pre-dating the Roman Catholic Church, which was created by Constantine, But only became a Church in their own right when the Roman Catholics were created because they wanted to be separate, as per the Nicene Creed.

after rigorous research, i believe you are talking about the schism of the east which involved the oriental orthodox church (today more commonly known as the coptic church) and nestorianism, where as i am talking about the east-west schism which involved the bishop of rome claiming universal jurisdiction and splitting off from the byzantine orthodox church

My point is... Catholicism IS Christianity. They are one and the same, with Christianity having many other denominations. Your first post insinuates that they are different from each other, but that is impossible seeing as they are technically the same.

He said there are differences. While I do think you are right, he isn't just yelling that catholicism is as closely related to christianity as hinduism. And ForReal is right, baptists (what most american christians identify as) don't have mass, but just go to church.

Well, your gym teacher is wrong. It's less than 10%, it's like 3%, but it's the media coverage that makes everyone look bad.

Though seriously it's really good that your gym teacher is teaching you more than just the rules of some game. Stuff like that doesn't normally get talked about in classes, but the people really oughta know it.
