You have to remember that if this guy is a Sunni (the only kind of Moslems they got in Egypt) they don't have any clergy.

It's just some guy who speaks at the Mosque, or who does law cases.

It's like running an independent church with a janitor as the head guy.

Most of the IGNANCE is generated by people who really are IGNANT.

These people aren't just barbaric, they're not really in touch.

In most of the world you wouldn't go to the local auto mechanic for spiritual advice ~ but in Egypt you'd be lucky to find a guy who was that educated.

I gather from the discussions this fellow needs a date bad.

/// respectfully, it is like a janitor with at least a 4 year divinity degree. many Sunni clerics are proud of their education at top universities like Al-Azhar in Egypt. comparison, Baptists may not have fancy clergy like Catholics, but they still have many highly educated ministers.

and there is much LESS difference between Sunni and Shia, than between Baptists and Catholics.

in doctrine and theology, there is almost zero difference.
(the reason for the split, was simply over whether the Caliph should be related to Mo or not.)

as Baynative said so perfectly:

” Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars–there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. “

...there is no “tiny minority of extremists. “misinterpreting” their OWN religion.

yes, some Muslims are “moderate”, like “cafeteria catholics”.
but there is NO disagreement on this, or ANY other major point, by devout Muslims. whether Sunni or Shia.

Juet because C.A.I.R. spokesmen practice taquiyya on us, doesn’t mean they don’t all admit in private, that age 53 Mohammad married Aisha when she was 6, and “thighed” her until she was 9, when he began full sex with her.

the perfect man, who should be emulated...

“This is agreed to by all scholars”
