What this first linked article says about the Qur'an is true:.
What this rabbi in this article says about the Old Testament Bible is also essentially true: Uprooted Palestinians: Major rabbi says non-Jews are donkeys, created to serve Jews.
The line at the end added by the author is correct; however, the rabbi would say it means to treat your slaves and animals humanely. It doesn't mean to treat non-Jews as well as Jews.
This is why, among other reasons, I'm a Christian.
Now, there are those who would point to the writings and sayings of those purporting to be Christians that if those people truly reflected the teachings and exemplary life of Jesus would show Jesus as a monster. Jesus was no monster, far from it, farthest from it. Those people purporting to be Christians who advocate for doing monstrous things are not truly Christians. They are mistaken at best.
You might ask about Hinduism and Buddhism, since they concern major religions. It is true that in both Hinduism and Buddhism it is not required of the adherents to treat the other members of society in the evil ways required of Judaism and Islam. Hinduism really has so many variants though that the Caste system is not prohibited across Hinduism. It is though in Christianity. That leaves Buddha versus Christ.
Buddha was technically opposed to God. Jesus was and is God with God. There's a huge difference in practical outcomes for humanity depending upon which religion is chosen across-the-board. I won't go into it now. It is sufficient for this post that you see that Judaism and Islam as established by the founders of each (which are their only proper definitions) are not the way forward for the family of man and woman.
Let me say though before ending this short post that the true Buddhist and true Christian would never attempt to force the other to bow. The true Jew of non-Christian but Mosaic Judaism and the true Muslim of the finalized Qur'an (slightly debatable) would seek to force by whatever violence necessary both the Buddhist and Christian to bend their knees to serve the Jew or Muslim as the case may be.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
