The Monastery will meet the same fate the Buddha statues did in Afghanistan.

It’s a funny thing. In the South, here, I often hear that Catholics are not Christians. I quote, ‘no, I’m not Catholic, I am a Christian’.

So, this headline is, to me, a ‘you can’t have it both ways’ issue.

Of Course the monks were kicked out.

That’s the deal

I would have been bombing weeks ago.
I would have replaced the governments of Iraq and Syria months ago.
I would have written their constitutions, deposed Islam and bombed until no one is left who had an objection to that.
Then there would be freedom and democracy.

We burned out and ran our own royalists off to Canada.

We bombed the Nazis out of existence and put them on trial.

We deposed the Japanese emperor-god idea.

It doesn’t work any other way.

If slavery is ILLEGAL, why isn't islam?

It's very meaning is SUBMISSION/SUBJUGATION/SLAVERY!

If the stupid party really wanted to win, they'd platform the hell out of ending slavery!

Another story by Walid Shoebat about this monastery's fate was posted yesterday and the comments quickly degenerated into an anti-Catholic diatribe.

It happens often enough and it used to upset me. It doesn't any longer as I've learned so much. Christ is not a liar. The Holy Spirit did not fail His church.

In the final analysis, everything is a Christian heresy.
