  • ChatGPT hates the Bible, loves the Koran

    I asked ChatGPT to critique the Bible: Certainly! I will give you my critique of the Bible. Historical Hogwash: The Bible reads like a poorly researched work of historical fiction penned by an amateur hack. Its accounts are as reliable as a tabloid gossip column, filled with fanciful tales of talking snakes, parted seas, and magical resurrections. Anyone who takes its claims of historical accuracy seriously is either deluded or willfully ignorant. Intellectual Insolvency: To call the Bible a repository of divine wisdom is to insult the very concept of intelligence. Its pages are littered with nonsensical ramblings, contradictory teachings,...

    Dwight D. Eisenhower said that “Without a doubt, psychological warfare has proven its right to a place of dignity in our military arsenal." (Snip) Over the last few weeks of Operation Iron Swords, we have seen many individual soldiers or units who have taken it on themselves to demoralize Israel’s enemies, whether in Gaza or Judea and Samaria. Many of the soldiers are acting primarily to raise the morale of the troops around them, but it is clear from Palestinian Arab social media that they are having a strong effect on the enemy. -We witnessed early on the large amount...

    Hamas terrorists shot female Israeli soldiers 'in the crotch, intimate parts and breasts' as part of a 'systematic genital mutilation', the IDF has claimed. Some of the female victims of the attack on October 7 were left with agonised looks on their faces in death, according to an Israeli unit that helped bless the bodies. Army reservist Shari Mendes said many bodies of female victims, both civilian and soldiers, arrived 'in bloody shredded rags or just in underwear'. Mendes, whose unit is based at the Shura Army Base in central Israel, was speaking at a UN event in New York...

    Several thousand angry Iraqis have been demonstrating for a second day outside the Swedish embassy in Baghdad today by burning rainbow flags. This comes just days after a Koran burning stunt in Stockholm has sparked outrage across the Muslim world. Police closed off the street past the Swedish embassy in Baghdad with concrete blocks today as protesters gathered on a nearby avenue after one group of protesters managed to penetrate the embassy yesterday. They managed to stay inside for 15 minutes before leaving when security forces arrived. The demonstration was again organised by supporters of firebrand Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr,...

    Church of England considers abandoning Christianity The Church of England convened a synod this past week, a gathering of bishops, clergy and laypeople for the purpose of reviewing and possibly changing church doctrine. The result of this particular gathering was that the national assembly voted, after two days of debate, to let Anglican priests bless same-sex weddings and civil partnerships. The blessings will come despite the fact gay and lesbian weddings will still be prohibited in the church. Intended as a compromise measure after five years of discussions on the church’s position on human sexuality, the result is confusing...

    These “love jihad” incidents stem from supremacist assumptions. Muslim women are forbidden to marry non-Muslim men: “Do not marry idolatresses until they believe, for indeed, a believing slave woman is better than an idolatress, even though she pleases you. And do not give your daughters in marriage to idolaters until they believe, for indeed, a believing slave is better than an idolater, even though he pleases you. These people invite you to the fire, and Allah invites you to the garden, and to forgiveness by his grace, and explains his signs to mankind so that perhaps they will remember.” (Qur’an...

    Istanbul (AFP) – Turkey on Saturday called off a visit by Sweden's defence minister over a planned demonstration by a right-wing extremist in Stockholm. Turkey has been angered by permission obtained by Rasmus Paludan, a Swedish-Danish politician whose anti-Islamist actions sparked riots across Sweden last year, to stage a protest in front of its embassy in the Swedish capital. A day after summoning the Swedish ambassador over the issue, Ankara said it was cancelling a visit by Sweden's defence chief that was aimed at overcoming Turkey's objections to Sweden's bid to join the NATO military alliance. "At this point, Swedish...

    Francis Omits Islam From Nigerian MassacreVATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis and the Nigerian bishops are refusing to name Muslim Fulani herdsmen as the gunmen who slaughtered over 70 Catholics in St. Francis Xavier Church, Ondo, on Pentecost Sunday. The pontiff's second-in-command, Cdl. Pietro Parolin, told Bp. Jude Arogundade of Ondo in a telegram sent Monday that Francis was praying for "the conversion of those blinded by hatred and violence so that they will choose instead the path of peace and righteousness." Episcopal FudgeArogundade's office issued a public statement hours after the slaughter, calling the attackers "unknown gunmen" and stating...

    On April 7, 2022, in Egypt, a Muslim man lunged at and viciously stabbed a Christian priest thrice in the neck with a knife; Fr. Arsenius Wadid died soon thereafter. Although the murderer was instantly apprehended by passersby -- the crime was committed on a crowded street -- Egyptian authorities initially tried to do what their Western counterparts often do: portray the murderer as “insane,” an aberration of society. Due to a combination of public outcry (primarily from the Copts themselves), the testimonials of seventeen eyewitnesses, and even the murderer’s own coherent responses -- to say nothing of the fact...

    Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the desecration of the Holy Quran in Sweden, saying that Sweden must deal with the perpetrators of this insulting act and prevent such acts from happening again. Khatibzadeh blamed the deliberate repetition of this insulting act during the holy month of Ramadan for hurting the feelings of Muslims in Sweden and around the world. "This insulting act is a clear example of creating sedition and contrary to freedom of speech and should be condemned." "While holding the Swedish government accountable, it also must deal with the perpetrators of this insulting act immediately, strongly...

    ...In prison, he began to study the Quran in greater detail, and focused on the aspects that most puzzled him. Among these was the figure called Dhu-l Qarnayn, “the two-horned one,” who appears in the Quran’s 18th chapter and is believed by many to refer to Alexander the Great. Cerantonio did not see a resemblance between Dhu-l Qarnayn and the Alexander of history—but he noted similarities between Dhu-l Qarnayn and a heavily fabulized version of Alexander’s story written in Aramaic. He considered that the Aramaic version may have plagiarized the Quran, but after acquiring a copy of the Aramaic and...

    THE Liverpool bomber who blew himself up in a failed terrorist attack at the city's women's hospital may have faked his conversion from Islam to Christianity in order to remain in the UK, the inquest has been told. Emad Al Swealmeen, 32, died shortly before 11am on Remembrance Sunday last month when a bomb he was carrying partially blew up in the back of a taxi outside Liverpool Women's Hospital. The Iraqi-born terrorist had constructed the homemade bomb with “murderous intent”, a coroner at Liverpool and Wirral coroner’s court said today. Al Swealmeen had also failed in an asylum application...

Watch not only his response to a Muslim cleric who claimed Jerusalem is Muslim, but in the forum he did it - inside their very own "court"!

    Unlike other religions, declared the nineteenth-century French scholar Ernest Renan, Islam “was born in the full light of history.” Renan’s point, of course, was that whereas, for example, Jesus was unknown during his lifetime to the great world beyond Galilee and Judea, and the story of his life was set down, in various versions, only decades after his crucifixion, Muhammed was in his own lifetime a public figure of unparalleled eminence - the prophet of a new religion, the commander of an army that conquered much of the Arabian peninsula in the name of that religion, and the founder of...
