I finally started reading the book again, and as I flipped through it earlier this week, I stumbled upon this excellent passage.
Here's the full press release from CAIR about the book the passage is take from:
"...an virulently Islamophobic book"
"...anti-Muslim screed [which] is the literary equivalent of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion'"
Fr. J.L. Menezes knew Islam up close: as a priest in India, he devoted his priestly life to introducing that nation's tens of millions of Muslims to Christianity. With this life of Mohammed, he left us the record of his appeals: a frank, honest, and exhaustively researched exploration of the life of the "prophet" of Islam, the development and contents of the Koran, and an introduction to various Muslim sects.
Working from the earliest Islamic sources, Fr. Menezes provides a complete account of Mohammed's life, from his days as a simple merchant to his triumphs as a leader of armies and revered prophet. Menezes delved so deeply into his subject that he was even able to describe Mohammed's physical appearance. He explains why Mohammed couldn't possibly be a true prophet, and reveals the true sources of his "revelations."
Fr. Menezes could be writing about today's Muslim terrorists when he explains that "Mohammed posed as the apostle of God, the seal of the prophets; as the destroyer of idolatry; as preacher of one true God, and the reformer of morals: while his life is marked by innumerable marriages; and great licentiousness, deeds of rapine, warfare, conquests, unmerciful butcheries, all the time invoking God's holy name to sanction his evil deeds, ordering prayers and alms deeds and at the same time propagating Islam everywhere by fire and sword."
Turning to the Koran, Fr. Menezes delineates the distinctive teachings of Islam, explaining the elements of the Muslim holy book that make it so difficult for Muslims to convert to Christianity -- and showing how the Koran, when read honestly and without Islamic preconceptions, nonetheless depends upon and leads to Christianity.
Fr. Menezes concludes with an "appeal to candor and common sense," inviting Muslims to think critically about their religion, and to embrace Christ instead. With Islam on the march everywhere and Muslims streaming into the U.S. in record numbers, the candor, common sense, and solid Christian faith of this book are needed more than ever.
Ah, well now. Don`t be too hard on ol` Mo. Don`t judge him on results. Like liberals, Mo had "good intentions".
Certainly not you...my apologies if you took it that way..
No, that's not the way I was thinking. ;-) I thought you were referring to the author of the book I excerpted from.
Watch dat Zem Zem well stuff.
The author of the book is a speaker of truth..
By their fruits you will know them.
Big Bad Mo was either a serious schizophrenic or seduced by Satan..Depends on if you like the mental health angle or the spiritual one.
What's wrong with usury and drinking booze?
Yeah, that's the one...nasty stuff....
Not only that, but muslims also spend a lot of their day figuring out how to poop and pee exactly how Mohammad did.
