Catholic Register: Islam stands with us against blood, violence of terrorism

The words to describe Islamic State atrocities have been all but exhausted. The bloodcurdling images in the news of their attacks stir the deepest resentment and there appears to be no end in sight to their violent activities. All of society feels insecure and vulnerable.

This atmosphere of anxiety makes it difficult for some, and impossible for others, to distinguish between the activities of the Islamic State and the religion of Islam. U.S. President Barack Obama was at pains to make that distinction when he recently made it clear that his country was not at war with Islam. In his mind, Islamic State and Islam are different realities. But it’s less clear if Obama’s opinion is shared among other world leaders as they try to combat terrorism in their countries.

What is frequently left out of the discussion whenever violent acts are committed in the name of Islam is the question of whose God is it anyway? Do Catholics, for example, believe that Allah, the God of Islam, is their God as well? Would a worshipper hear from a Catholic pulpit or a Muslim hear at a prayer service that Islam and Christianity worship the same God? Probably not. Does the average Catholic and Muslim try to understand the similarities and differences between the God worshipped by Islam and Christianity? Not likely…

That is all you can read without a subscription (that I don’t have), but it’s enough to see their idiotic mindset.

    Leftarded RCs live in a Marxist fantasyland. They are champions at denying everything that is observable, then reinterpreting it. They don’t take the observable data showing Islam to be misogynistic, intolerant and violent, but sees ‘deeper explanations’ everywhere. They go through similar theological acrobatics with Jehovah (almost 7000 mentions in the Hebrew Bible) and Allah, the conflation of Qos the god of hunting and Allat-Venus. Jehovah want ‘children’ who discuss problems with their ‘father’ and ‘friend’, whereas Allah wants slaves who are slavers and rewards them in paradise with more slaves. There is little similarity between Jehovah and Allah. But the RC Leftards don’t apparently study theology. They’re too busy reading their true love Marx.

    The person who wrote that clearly spends more time thinking about Islam than studying it.

    Perhaps they should do less writing and more reading.

    Koran reading, for example…..

    As well, he should definitely read ‘The Life Of Muhammad’ (‘Sirat Rasul Allah’)…..

  • Islam is not only a violent ideology but a heresy.

    If nothing to date has made the writer see reason, probably nothing will.

    Doesn’t Michael Coren write for the Catholic Register? As an Anglican, he fits right in I guess.
