Too bad there aren’t any Christians left here to rub it in their faces.

Sure there are. Snoopy's still around and perhaps Sergeant Thorne reads here occasionally. The world needs more peaceful men like this oldster.

Edit: I removed my earlier comment because for some idiotic reason, I didn't notice that he was actually a Christian, not a Muslim. :roll:

He's not too bright it seems.

I wonder what he'll say when he comes to "O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliya' of each other. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely, he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)."

Probably the exact same thing that someone reading Deuteronomy would think upon reading, "If a man is found sleeping with another man's wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel." Or does the Old Testament get a magical free pass from you?

Except he is doing exactly what the koran forbids the muslim children to accept him as. Irony much?

Actually in my opinion, nobody should be teaching religious text to children, they should at least become adults before someone starts to fill their heads with nonsense.

That right is reserved for parents... :wink:

Suddenly you're an expert on the koran; a part of a religion you hate?

I lurk every once in a while...

So, how does he get it? Does he get it because he's helping kids, or because he's being "religiously inclusive?"

Could it be because he advocates teaching others about the world's different religions, even if they're not his own, along with a nice dose of promoting peace and understanding?

Indoctrinating children can never be a good thing.

I love how people talk about zombies, spaghetti monsters and “fairy tales” but then get all gushy when something fits a certain narrative.

I'm not talking about indoctrination, I'm talking about informing.

he's teaching that two religions are linked by a LOT of common history, descendant from Abraham of Old Testament times. He gets that bit that Christians are taught via parables about treating one's neighbors with love and respect(as opposed to the hate and untruths those children will certainly encounter).

Exactly. What leftist atheists don't get is that they're on the menu after Christians and Jews are taken out by islam.

Indoctrinating children is always bad? Isn't teaching your child responsibility or ethics or pretty much anything indoctrination? I thought that was a big thing for conservatives. Or are you using "indoctrination" as a pejorative meaning teaching something you don't like?

I admit it. As a leftist atheist, I spend zero time pondering being "taken out" by islam.

No Vander…it has nothing to do with what “I” like or dislike…it has to do with filling children’s minds with crap.

Context is important.

Sure…maybe I should have narrowed my statement down a little, but I always speak in context…so my bad.

I've come to believe that TB thinks the movie Team America is an accurate portrayal of Islam. "Durka durka, Mohammed jihad!"

But isn't even teaching world history or politics to children in school filling their minds with crap? So much of history and even politics is tainted and written by the power players and victors.

The use of "menu" in the context of zombies and spaghetti monsters somehown struck my funny bone.

I asked because I wondered what each of you would see as the particularly commendable aspect.
