Interesting comparison between Jesus and Muhammad

I enjoyed this article because it addresses the fact that throughout history religion has been used as an excuse for war. People have killed in the name of their God. Given this undisputed fact, how can we describe Christianity or Islam as a religion of peace? How do we decide if either or neither are inherently peaceful?

It turns out that the best way to judge a religion or political ideology is to look at both the words and the actions of the person who started the movement in the first place. If I start a religion and I tell my followers to never eat meat and I write my rules down for never eating meat and I myself never eat meat, then any follower who eats meat is therefore not a true follower. They have no right to call themselves a follower of my religion as they do not emulate my actions, my words or my rules.

Islam claims to be a religion of peace. Christianity also claims to be a religion of peace. Are both claims true or is only one of the two religions truly of peace?

Face of the day

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that prohibits women from driving.

Many conservative Saudi women do not support loosening traditional gender roles and restrictions, on the grounds that Saudi Arabia is the closest thing to an “ideal and pure Islamic nation,” and under threat from “imported Western values”.

I wonder if today’s face of the day thinks that Western Values are currently under threat by ‘ Pure ‘ Islam? in the UK?

Whatever her personal views I just love this true story of how she was not afraid to offend King Abdullah.

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia died yesterday aged 90, and there has been some controversy over the tributes paid by world leaders to the ruler of a repressive regime that carries out public beheadings and bans women from driving.

Amid debate over whether flags should be flying at half-mast from government buildings, and Westminster Abbey, out of respect for Abdullah, it turns out, however, that our very own Queen had nailed the best way to handle the Saudi ruler many years ago.

This story, taken from former Saudi ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles?s memoir Ever the Diplomat, was widely shared on social media on Friday; mainly because it?s amazing.
