But is this true? I know 'Allah' is spelt wrong but I mean in the wider context.
If it is then the Qur'an is an anti-Islamic document because it clearly states that all Jews and Christians are believers who will go to paradise.
If this is not what Muslims believe then we need to disseminate the information that being a Muslim does not rely on the Qur'an.
If it is false then clearly these people - if the article is genuine which is far from certain - are not Muslims and as such cannot be used as examples.
It's a dilemma. best ignore it and carry on with the agitprop
Well, the quote came from this blog
and that's where I found the link to the original article (from a local newspaper). What does one need? CNN? Reuters? Fox?
Well, I dug a little deeper...seems the original article is by Katherine Kersten
, the Star-Tribune's resident diehard fundamentalist. This is the woman who described an Episcopal minister as a "practicing homosexual
" . So now I'm not surprised she represents such an obvious situation in the most negative possible light.
Still, if you put a bunch of different religious people in a room to "meditate", war breaks out. Who would have thought?...
