I wanted to briefly introduce myself, as I may be posting (hopefully infrequently) on this forum. I was raised in what many would consider a conservative, catholic family. I was the alter boy, while my father and sister sang in the church choir. While in college several years back, I began to question my religious beliefs, the validity of them, and where many of them came from. To make a long story short, I chose Islaam as my religion and way of life.
As you may imagine, my catholic family has long hoped that I would “come back” to the truth and open my eyes and heart. My sister, whatever her reasons may be, sent me a link to this forum, suggesting that there may be nice discussions that may interest me. She also warned me that some of them can get downright ugly, as some members end up in a mud slinging contest.
I have read a several posts that did disappoint me, but perhaps this should be expected considering this is not a Muslim forum. Nevertheless, if and when I have the knowledge to answer and reply to questions (which will probably be rare), I will do my best to do so. I will not be reading and posting often, as it seems many Catholic apologists do (ie. hawk…seems like you enjoy posting defaming things on Islaam). So if you ask a question or want to reply to something I wrote, please do understand that I may not check for several weeks.
God willing, this forum is meant to discuss the similarities and differences between these two religions in an effort to gain a heightened understanding of their beliefs. Hopefully the questions, and their respective answers, can reflect this.
