Go to: Group blasts Marine Corps for reviving 'Crusaders' name and symbols

Igor Trip's Avatar Jump to comment 19 by Igor Trip

The real problem with the name Crusader is that the Crusades were a total disaster!

Ignorant Europeans, totally oblivious of the politics of the middle east, rampaged through the area killing everyone, and then after many long expensive campaigns were kicked out.

Crusader is a name to avoid.

Go to: God Sent Christopher Hitchens to Hell Because He Loved Him

Igor Trip's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by Igor Trip

The problem for Christians is that they are trapped by scripture. They can't ignore the New Testament which clearly states people like Hitchin's are going to hell (they can of course ignore the Old Testament which has no hell). So this guy has to defend his God sending Hitchen's down to eternal torture and that's what he's trying to do. He has no other option if he's to remain a Christian.

Go to: Tunisia’s Islamist-led government rejects laws to enforce religion

Igor Trip's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by Igor Trip

The Quran does say there's no compulsion in religion. though it also says we'll burn in hell if we don't believe.

002.256: Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

002.257: Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light. Of those who reject faith the patrons are the evil ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depths of darkness. They will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein (For ever).

Go to: Guilty of the sin of anger

This is the verse Muslims believe refers to the Big Bang.

021.030 YUSUFALI: Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder?

PICKTHAL: Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then We parted them,

SHAKIR: Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them;

The problem is that the earth didn't exist until 9 billion years after the Big Bang. Those guys really need to read a science book.
