Norway: Christians and Muslims Sign Declaration on Religious Freedom
The Islamic Council of Norway and the Church of Norway Council on Ecumenical and International Relations have issued a joint declaration outlining the scope of religious freedom entitled to people of faith, particularly Christians and Muslims.
Among those involved in the dialogue to produce the document were the leader of the Islamic Council of Norway, Senaid Kobilica, Church of Norway pastor Anne Hege Grung, General Secretary for the Islamic Council of Norway, Shoaib Sultan, and General Secretary for the Church of Norway Council on Ecumenical and International Relations, Olav Fykse Tveit.
In the declaration, the leaders stated, â€śWe denounce, and are committed to counteracting all violence, discrimination and harassment inflicted in reaction to a personâ€™s conversion, or desire to convert, from one religion to another, be it in Norway or abroad....
Kenny, Rome was a "religiously pluralistic society" as you put it, and look what happend to them. And also look at every other "religiously pluralistic society" for more examples. In maybe less than 100 years people will be looking at all the current "religiously pluralistic societys" and shaking their heads at how they all collasped because of it.
Whether you know it or not, a declaration of "Jihad" exists !!! -- You are just fooling youself if you think the gesture of some Muslim Figurehead signing that Document was of any worth at all !!!
You said, "Despite your revisionist history, America was, is, and will remain a religiously pluralistic society."
I am happy to be the one to set you straight on this clear and factual TRUTH --- ***Sir, you are the historical revisionist*** !!! What they taught you in school WAS ONE BIG LIE !!!
THIS WAS A CHRISTIAN NATION ***UNTIL OF LATE*** !!! People were welcomed from all over the world and they were welcomed to come and worship as they deemed fitting and right for themselves and their families, BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE "We" WERE FOUNDED UPON ***CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES***!!!
THIS IS A NATION THAT WAS ***BUILT UPON*** THE FIRM FOUNDATION OF GOD'S LAW !!!
"We" have lost "Our" way in these latter days -- due to ill informed individuals such as yourself !!!
"We" have become a touchy-feely, wishy-washy people that STAND FOR NOTHING and fall for anything !!!
I'm not trying to be ugly, but it is not timely, nor would it be correct of me to beat around the bush !!!
As a Nation "We" are in DIRE STRAITS and men *have not* VISION TO SEE !!!
I hate to break your balloons folks, but there is NOTHING in that statement that the United States Government could not, or has not already endorsed. Remember folks, this is as much a political statement as it is a religious statement. Now I know that some of you really, really want a Fundamentalist Christian United states Government, but you don't have it and are unlikely to get it. What exactly did you want these religious leaders to say to each other? Did you want a declaration of Jihad? Did you desire a declaration of Crusade? Did you want a blood bath in the streets? All that nonsense has been tried in the past. If you all denigrate every attempt at tolerance for other religious beliefs, you really are un-American!!!! Despite your revisionist history, America was, is, and will remain a religiously pluralistic society. The vast majority of Americans (Jew, Christian, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Animist, or even Athiest) will tolerate your shennanigans up to a point, then you will be spanked by the Judicial Courts and the court of public opinion and put into the corner where you will be marginalized and left to pout. Wise up.
Norway: Christians and Muslims Sign Declaration on Religious Freedom ???
The declaration stated, â€śWe denounce, and are committed to counteracting all violence, discrimination and harassment inflicted in reaction to a personâ€™s conversion, or desire to convert, from one religion to another, be it in Norway or abroad."
The Qu'ran teaches violence, discrimination and harassment toward those who express the desire to leave "The Faith" -- and *death* to those who renounce "Mohammed" (the FALSE prophet) and "Allah" (the FALSE god) -- and we all know what the Qu'ran teaches about the "infidel" that refuses to convert -- their reward is death as well !!!
Hate to break the news to those trusting souls in Norway -- THAT DOCUMENT ISN'T WORTH THE INK IT TOOK TO SIGN IT !!!
"True Muslem Believers" will not honor that which contradicts the doctrinal teachings of the Qu'ran !!! -- The signing of that "Agreement" was merely *pretence* and you can be sure they will find that it doesn't hold water in time...
They best be on their guard or they will be in for a rude awakening... !!!
The Qu'ran also teaches that it is OK to lie under oath if it furthers the cause of the "Muslim Faith" !!!
A Faith built on lies and deceit -*???*- SAD ---- BUT TRUE !!!
