    “If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. Proverbs 20:20” ~ Yep, this is a “typical” verse for Christianity. And frankly, considering our Homeland security’s record, I would take that 1,000 cells with a salt block.

    “There’s no room to print them all here, but this is a typical verse from the Q’uran:”

    Try reading the Bible……..the bit about what they did to the inhabitants of Jherico is very enlightening……….and reading a little history about the crusades and the Middle ages in general show how “peace loving” Christianity can be when it sets it mind on mass murder.

    This is a bit of a straw man argument, isn’t it? The big mess that (I assume) this story is based on had to do with one person answer a hypothetical question about a wedding. That is, that person was opposed to an event, not an individual. And I didn’t hear of a single person choosing to go or not go to a particular restaurant based on those decisions, or wishing that a particular group of people didn’t exist, so…this comic is a bunch of garbage.

    And this is a typical verse from the Old Testament: "And Moses spoke unto the people, saying: ‘Arm ye men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian, to execute the LORD’S vengeance on Midian. … and they slew every male. … [And Moses said] Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman …’ (Numbers 31)

    Even God discriminates. No miracle ever cured an amputee. Nary a one. Ever. Skin diseases? No problem. Insanity? No problem. But loss of a limb? Forget it. Perhaps some therapy is in order, to get to the bottom of this hatred of amputees. Although I suppose one ought to be grateful that he got over those fits of ordering mass smitings and genocides in the old days. Or maybe just found out that the orders were superfluous. His followers were sufficiently naturally vicious that murder and torture on a grand scale just came naturally. Maybe God isn’t dead. He’s just retired, having truly made man in his own image.

    I don’t know where the verse you are quoting came from – but this is the full passage:

    - And when it is said to them, “Believe in what Allah has revealed,” they say, “We believe [only] in what was revealed to us.” And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them. Say, “Then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before, if you are [indeed] believers?”

    Not quite the same as yours.

    Hard being illiterate? All the evils mentioned here are actions by humans on other humans. We have been given Reason (OK, to what degree is a different debate) and we have chosen to kill and maim each other in whatever’s or whomever’s name. We picked up the swords, we killed each other. And we have to put them down. No fantasy there, but maybe you should renew your Prozac?

    It’s quite interesting that the Christians are taking this as an insult against them & crying “intolerance”.Pretty much every major religion claims to be a “Faith of peace & love”. Some groups in every religion seem to think that anyone who doesn’t share their views, shouldn’t exist.

    Strangely enough, sometimes I think of all the sentient beings in all the universes that exist, who are right now thinking of all the other sentient beings who are at this moment thinking of all the other (etc.). I call these sentient beings “Them,” very tenderly. This can be very relaxing. Too bad all of us can’t think of our world’s Them in the same way.

    I have no doubt that someone else has done it by now; I haven’t read all the way to the bottom yet. Not going to stop me, so here goes:The Christian Bible, most notably the Old Testament, is load with exactly the same violent, murderous nonsense. Not going to bother quoting it, we all know it’s there. And, from a historical perspective, Christianity is likely way ahead of Islam on the body count.

    Quoting Tom Lehrer: “There are people in this world who do not love their fellow human beings and I hate people like that”.

    Unfortunately, there are far too many people whose religion does not allow those of different beliefs to share the planet with them.

    Well done Wiley.

    I really can’t say I’m surprised by the sheer ignorance of certain posters (whom I will decline to name). They’ve earned a reputation for going on sound bites rather than any real attempts at truly researching anything.

    *That’s the problem with religion. It’s up to humans to interpret the words of the divine. So what if a man has a cat on his shoulder? Is he not still a human being? …Er, maybe in Cap’n Eddie’s case that’s not the best argument.

    Whereas our faith of peace and love calls on us to have compassion for Them, and even You. Remember, You may be somebody else’s Them. We offer the merit of our training to You, on the grounds that nobody needs it more, except maybe ISIS. Certainly we don’t need to hold onto it. There is plenty more where that came from.

    Completely; I was just expressing appreciation for his responses to the theocrats. I’ve been married for 38 years now, and am straighter than a razor’s edge. But, I didn’t inherit the bigotry gene (which, I gather, is a recessive mutation).As I once commented here: “I’m not gay; this is not self-interest. Just working for justice, like the white folk who supported civil rights, or the men who supported women’s suffrage.”
