#3578: Not everyone is like you savages.

A muslim burned a Bible, and says he'll pee on one next time putting Christians the world over at risk of straining their eye muscles.



I know what this backwards, peurile savage thinks he's doing: he thinks he's issuing a deadly insult to Christianity and its followers...because that's how things work in his death cult. You burn the koran (or piss on it) and you're headed for fatwa city.

But islam is a weak religion. It's weak because it absolutely cannot tolerate the mildest of slights. That's why its adherents fly into incandescent rage at the barest of adversity: it's not a religion; it's an inferiority complex. It's a religion that was ginned up by a man who never wanted for anything other than recognition as a prophet and who died in bed.

Christianity, on the other hand, is strong. It's strong because it has been forged from the suffering of saints; it's strong because it's founded on the teachings of Jesus Christ, who--despite His divinity!--allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross and killed in a most hideous and ignominious fashion.

During its formative years islam was carried on the sword, and people were given the choice of joining or dying. During the formative years of Christianity, though, people were put to the sword for refusing to recant their faith in Christ.

And that makes all the difference.

It's easy to decide to convert to a religion when someone is pointing a gun at you and saying, "You'll join, or you'll die." But it's not a real conversion and it's not faith that drives you to it; it's just the fear of torture and death.

And that's why islam can't tolerate the least of insults. It can't take it because its foundation is weak because the only way Mohammed could build the religion was by threatening to kill people. There was no other compelling reason to join it. Islam grew slowly until Mohammed went on the warpath because Mohammed wasn't going around healing the sick and feeding the hungry; he was just making pronouncements and writing suras.

And killing people who refused to join. Especially the descendents of those who refused to legitimize his status as prophet--the Jews.

Christianity isn't about subjugation or intimidation or revenge; it's about love. It's about compassion and understanding and kindness and forgiveness. Do Christians fall short of the ideal? All the time, which is why the concept of grace is so important. God forgives us in spite of the fact that we don't deserve it, out of His love for us.

...and how does burning a Bible change that? How can it?
