Mark, me too. comments, comments,...
I have set my e-mail setting to NOT send me any E-mails from this site, but I get them anyway. Anybody else?
Janet, you keep asking who I am. I've identified myself at least twice at TP meetings, but just liike the." honey vs vinegar" post, you forgot.
Janet, Yes I do, and what's your point? Who has maliciously damaged your reputation?
A false publication in writing, printing, or typewriting or in signs or pictures that maliciously damages a person's reputation.
Iran arrests journalists, to execute bloggers.
Remember Department of Homaland Security notifying of media journalist monitoring just a week or two ago. Just to keep an ear on what's being said about them, right.
IRAN taking it one-step further. How far behind are we?
Shhhhhhh! Do you have ADD or something ? LOL
I am not against the Bible, the way "I" understand it, but there are (example) others who believe that they can beat their wives because the bible tells a woman to be submissive to her husband.
I think the Bible is a great book, the way "I" understand it............
I have not read the Qur'an and probably won't............It would only be "my" opinion anyway as to what it means............Besides, just like the Bible............Unless you are reading it in it's native tongue true meaning can be lost in translation..............
My main focus is on getting a President in office who will refrain from getting the world angry with us in the first place, by poking everyone with sticks and then expecting them NOT to retaliate.............Leave "sleeping dogs lie"
I don't want Sharia law either but I also don't like some of the laws that our own government is forcing on us either..........But no one on this site seems to realize how bad these laws are or gives a Damn !..... If we get "Real" CONSTITUTIONALISTS in office the other problem can be solved !
NDAA, NAFTA, CAFTA, Laws telling how to raise our children, what to eat, what shots to take, how to run our farms (that have been in our family for generations) AND home gardens, Limiting our speech, changing the words in our liturature, Homeland Security, TSA, Microchips, etc, Hell !, we may as well ad Sharia Law in there too.............
If people are so afraid of Sharia Law why do they keep voting for the same status quo, that let them come here in the first place !
After 911 it seems that the border got wider and more inviting ? Why is that ?
We'll Jennifer I'm glad you have us covered on the Shari'a in the U.S. threat! Ssssheeeww...that was close.
All anyone can read is an INTERPRETATION of the Quran or the Bible. Many scholars who have made a carreer of studying the Koran or Bible can't agree on the interpretation of either. To quote John Alden Williams. "the quran was revealed in Arabic. It is a matter of faith in Islam that since it is of Divine Origin, it is inimitable, and since to translate is always to betray. Muslims have always deprecated and at times prohibited any attempt to render it into another language.Anyone who has read it in the original is forced to admit that this caution seems justified. Arabic when expertly used is a remarkably terse, rich and forceful language and the Arabic of the Quran is by turns striking, soaring, vivid, terrible,tender and breathtaking. No man in fifteen hundred years has ever played on that deeptoned instrument with such power, such boldness and such range of emotional effect. It is meaningless to apply adjectives such as "beautiful' or 'persuasive to the Quran. --------- It is not surprising, then, that a skilled reciter can reduce an Arabic audience to helpless tears and that for 13 centuries it has been ceaselessly meditated upon.
From his book "Islam" Dr. John Alden Williams lectures on Islamic History at the Institute Of Islamic Studies, McGill Univ, Montreal . A graduate of the U of Arkansas, and Princeton (PhD). He has also studied at the American University (Beirut) and the U of Munich. He is a Woodrow Wilson Fellow, has recieved fulbright and Rockefeller grants for study in Islamic civilization and received a post-doctoral garant to studie Islamic Art from the AMerican Center for research in Cairo.
IOW, I beleive that it takes more that a Rosetta Stone course in Arabic to read and understand the Quran.
