Who is singling out Islam? The OP. The subject of this thread is making a comparative judgement to single Islam out as a worse religion than Christianity. A pointless opinion in mine, and it seems your opinion. I have stated explicitly my feelings on both religions: I have as much respect for Chris...

I hadn't realised Martha was kicked off. When did this happen? What were the circumstances? I just assumed she was on a break, recharging her loony batteries. Well it would be very difficult for you to realise she was kicked off when the topic was removed from the anouncements page. Obviously my pr...

The point I'm trying to make is screw Islam. I'm not paying taxes for children that mullahs raped. Islam does not run 93% of the schools in Ireland that I pay for. Our goverment is not riddled with pro Islam politicians. Islam does not have more nuclear weapons than marbles. The far more dangerous ...

And the Christian reaction to the printing press was? The Catholic Church for the first time in history invented modern censorship with the Index of Forbidden books. That idea has survived right up to today and is still being used to preserve the CCL. Try joining the Catholic forum at boards.ie. On...

As for LE's presumption that Christians who criticise Islam more than any other religion are suffering from 'ignorant political prejudice' is beneath contempt. It borders on an accusation of racism. Should we email Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennet and tell them to restrict themselves to Christianity in th...

I have to agree with LE on the issue of credibility and where to direct criticism. Granted, much within Islam is odious. But as westerners within a Christian country, it is natural to focus on Christianity. Singling out Islam as being comparatively worse plays to a different agenda. Who is singling...
