That quack Dr Rowan Williams is at it again. Capitulate, capitulate, capitulate.
Christian doctrine is offensive to Muslims, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday.
Dr Rowan Williams also criticised Christianity’s history for its violence, its use of harsh punishments and its betrayal of its peaceful principles.
His comments came in a highly conciliatory letter to Islamic leaders calling for an alliance between the two faiths for ‘the common good’.
But it risked fresh controversy for the Archbishop in the wake of his pronouncement earlier this year that a place should be found for Islamic sharia law in the British legal system.
Dr Williams is also facing immense pressures from inside his own Church of England and Anglican Communion.
A gathering of Anglican bishops from around the world, which begins today, is on the brink of a devastating split over whether homosexuality and gay clergy should win their approval.
The Archbishop’s letter is a reply to feelers to Christians put out by Islamic leaders from 43 countries last autumn.
In it, Dr Williams said violence is incompatible with the beliefs of either faith and that, once that principle is accepted, both can work together against poverty and prejudice and to help the environment.
He also said the Christian belief in the Trinity – that God is Father, Son and Holy Ghost at the same time – ‘is difficult, sometimes offensive, to Muslims’.
Trinitarian doctrine conflicts with the Islamic view that there is just one all-powerful God.
Awww poor muslims are offended by doctrine that predates islam. Just one problem there, professor. Jesus never once called for slaying non Christians. Muhammad did, and he participated in the slaughter. Jesus preached peace and lived it. Muhammad preached jihad and … well you get the idea.
Christians have done (and still do) horrible things, despite that Jesus did not.
Muslims have done (and still do) horrible things, just like their “prophet” Muhammad.
Christians are violent, Christianity is not, evidenced by Jesus’ message “Love thy neighbor”, his message of forgiveness (“Come as you are, to the Father”), his acts of compassion towards Mary Magdalene, and the ultimate sacrifice – his very life.
Muslims are violent, so is islam, evidenced by Muhammad’s message “I am made victorious through terror”, his raids on numerous caravans, his molesting of a 9 year old girl he married when she was 6, and his extermination of the ENTIRE Qurayza tribe of Jews at Medina.
You tell me which doctrine is trully offensive…
