Shiite Muslims quietly establish a foothold in U.S.
Sayed Mohammad Jawad Al-Qazwini was 12 years old when his family fled Iran and settled in Los Angeles. Now 28, he sat with some 70 Shiite Muslims at the Iman Islamic Center on a recent Friday night, preaching about the Mosque of the Trash Picker in Iran, and a Turkish mosque peculiarly named “As if I have eaten.”

Al-Qazwini, a descendant of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, soon veered into a theme he had raised before on his two-week visit to the center: the discrimination and violence that Shiite Muslims have suffered at the hands of Sunni Muslims.

Many Shiite Muslims say that while American mosques profess to be open to any and all Muslims, they tend to be Sunni in practice and can be hostile to Shiite beliefs and practices.

In some ways, the Sunni/Shiite divide is similar to divisions between Protestants and Catholics — both are Christians, but with different ways of understanding and worshipping ...

"In some ways, the Sunni/Shiite divide is similar to divisions between Protestants and Catholics — both are Christians, but with different ways of understanding and worshipping"

I don't suppose we can expect the Washington Post to know the difference between Roman Catholics and real Christians. But then we could go into Jehovah's Witnesses, Charismatics, Pentecostals, Liberals and uncle tom cobbley and all.

All we need remember is that Faith being the gift of God is only given by God to His disciples. So the many religionists who play at church can only be a parody of the true Church.

Thus those who are outside the true Church are Totally Depraved. The true Church of course are Unconditionally Elected. Christ's redeeming work for the elect is of course a Limited Atonement. The efficacious inner call is by Irresistible Grace. And finally the elect Persevere to the end only by the Grace of God. (T.U.L.I.P.)

You beat me to it! Thanks for your comment, it was right on and a blessing to me. Catholicism is so far off track that it amazes me that we can "rightfully" say Islam is evil, but then not say the same thing about Catholicism. Both reinvented a Christ to suit their own purposes, but since only one pretends to worship their false Christ, then our ecumenical and pluralistic thoughts guide us (the constitution has no religious litmus test). Anyway, good comment.
