Was there a church in Mecca? Chiselled stonework with Christian figure discovered at holy site in Yemen
If it was holding a symbol of peace, then we know it has nothing to do with the warring piggod of the cult of islam.
in the era of the Prophet Muhammadin the error of Muhammad
Nice carving. I'm not sure the crosspiece on the staff makes it a cross, but perhaps. I'd have to see other contemporary Christian art.
Pinging SunkenCiv, just FYI.
Before being replaced by a violent replacement cult of Islam that is.
Muhammad was born in Mecca in 570 AD. Two hundred years earlier Emperor Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. Mecca was at the edge of the Empire. Yes, there were Christian churches there. There were synagogues there too, as well as pagan temples (which is what the Kaaba in Mecca was before Muhammad conquered Mecca).
I’m sure there was a Church in Mecca—as the spread of Christianity in the 7th Century was remarkable, even in Arabia, until it was literally snuffed out by the sword of Mohammed.
Of course the great news is, there IS a Church, even now, in Mecca... (even though the Saudi’s don’t know where it is, and deny it exists...)
There they go again. Don’t they know that this will incite violence?
It would make sense that Christians were in Mecca before the demon visited Mohammed in a cave and convinced him that a minor pagan moon god was the same God as Yahweh/Jehovah. Its too bad that they weren’t more successful. The history of humanity would have been much more peaceful if the locals had laid hands on Mohammed and removed his demons rather than taking up arms and following him to battle.
Mecca could have been Rome and Medina Paris and not the current camel litter boxes infested with benighted bloodthirsty barbarians as they are today.
The upper right has the Icthus Cross with the fish as the crossbar, tail on left.
Now that’s interesting. An Ethiopian-style crown. . . I wonder whether it was a carving to commemorate the Ethiopian invasion of Yemen to free the Christians there from persecution by the Jews.
(Pre-Mohammedan Yemen was a predominantly Jewish kingdom which persecuted its Christian minority until Ethiopia conquered it to put a stop to the persecutions.)
When was this found? Have the muzzis destroyed it yet?
Once a year, in the twelfth Muslim lunar month of Dhu al-Hijjah, Meca is still the number one target-rich location for an immediate 2-mt nuke strike.
Just make sure the target is Saudi Arabia and not Yemen...
