Fw: Allah or Jesus - You Respond
I got this from a christian "friend"
I removed the names and email addresses to protect the guilty....I think I noticed one forward coming from a government entity.....
I also deleted all the nausiatingly christian responses through each forward.
Below is my reply, and beyond that is the email I received.
I replied to all, but I am hopeful that I will not get bombarded by christian love/hate.
Mrs Riley is an elder, and, believe it or not, my reply to her is probably as close to loosing my temper all I'll ever get with her.
Please let me know what you would have written.
My apologies if I have overstepped any bounds, but I replied to all in an
effort to stem the misinformation.
I nearly hurt myself I rolled my eyes so hard.
Mrs. Riley, please Please PLEASE check into things before you send them out.
You are spreading half truths and sometimes outright lies.
This forwarded email was not written by Rick Mathes. The muslim in question
was not an Imam, but a muslim prisoner, just as knowledgeable about islam as
most christians are about christianity.
This forwarded message is so full of half truths that it should be
disregarded. When you spread lies you spread hate. (is that WJWD?)
I am not going to give you the link this time. All you have to do is copy
and paste the title and author into any search engine, and the half truths
will be revealed. All you need is 3 minutes.

We must favor verifiable evidence over private feeling. Otherwise we leave ourselves vulnerable to those who would obscure the truth.
