I've reverted the working of the first paragraph because it conforms better to N.P.O.V. The content is basically the same. No doubt, there are many serious things to discuss here, but let's allow the facts to speak for themselves. Fr. John
- Is NPOV really what we're striving for? I thought that we had a definite and distinct point of view. Of course, this is not to say that we ought to be uncharitable in expressing it.Dogface 10:33, March 1, 2006 (CST)
- Hi Dogface (how can I not smile when writing that?!) - Our definition of NPOV is different from Wikipedia's, since we enshrine "A mainstream Chalcedonian bias" as the basis of neutrality. (This is a recognition that there is no true "neutral", but our understanding of truth comes ultimately through revelation.)
- All that said, if I remember the issue, I think I was saying that we should generally let the facts speak for themeselves rather simply resorting to invective. Fr. John
Islam equal to religion of Pharisees
I added a slight change that Islam is the religion of the Pharisees. It wants to enslave everyone under its Pan-Arab ideology. Quite similar to the now defunct School of Shammai, an ultra-nationalist Jewish group in Palestine in the time of our Lord that seeked an earthly conquering Messiah who was violent. Any comments? Do you think this is reasonable to add?
