I just thought what a beautiful thing between these Jewish and Islamic congregations. Actually something concrete and peaceful. It was so nice to see. And it did pop into my mind that maybe others besides Jared could lead the way.
Your views are in direct opposition to the religion you claim.
That…doesn’t bother you?
You seriously cannot see what we are doing to the Muslims is the same kind of spirit that drove the Nazis and ended with millions dead?
Hate is hate, it doesn’t discriminate.
That’s why Catholics stand with the Church.
1 John 2:23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
There are 5 pillars of faith that all Muslims must believe. The first pillar states that there is no God but Allah. He has no partners or son. Our Father in heaven does not deny his son.
There are Muslims who do believe in the true God. I truly believe that just as God guides us in truth he will in turn guide them to the truth of his Son. Just as he will guide all who truly believe.
That does not mean the religion teaches about the true God. If it did, then it would preach his Son.
Except I don’t hate Muslims. I have neither said I hate Muslims nor said something hateful about them.
Comment A) I wouldn’t allow it in my church. There are numerous religions I would not want to worship or preach in my Church. I’m not going to be comfortable with worshipping falsehood or teaching falsehood in my a place I consider holy. I would consider it absolutely scandalous. It is a pillar of Islamic faith to deny Christ. That is not an acceptable faith to be preached in a Catholic Church. That is not hateful. I wouldn’t expect a Muslim to be comfortable with priest saying Mass in a mosque either. Not because they hate us but because our beliefs are opposed on something fundamental to both faith systems.
Comment B) Nor is refusing to lie about Islamic beliefs hateful. In fact lying is a sin and in this case I would meet the criteria for a mortal sin if I did lie about the beliefs. The problem is not that I am honest. It is Islamic beliefs that are the problem.
I have not called for Muslims to be harmed. Nor have I called for Islam to be outlawed. I have not burned their books, asked that they wear identification or done/said anything to suggest I would support the systematic destruction of Muslims. I have simply said I wouldn’t lend them my church, that they worship a false God and been truthful about Islamic beliefs. That is not hate and it is a far cry from anything like Nazism.
