playing in the superhighway @ 05:36 pm

As I've mentioned before, I post on a Christian forum with an extensive TOS and active mods hunting for stuff they don't like. My latest run-in with the mods was in a thread about whether Allah and Yahweh are the same. Although they never really explicitly explain why they delete a post, apparently my post that linked to this Wikipedia page broke rule 15. So I guess it either promotes teachings contrary to those of Christianity, or promotes false religions. I dunno.

Anyway, no problem with saying, "I would submit to you that "Allah" of Islam is in fact the demon of Antichrist."

ETA: Wow, they just nuked the whole thread. (Or possibly it's temporarily in a 'review & hold' limbo)

Scrolling though that post, I saw the icon and the comment and did a spit-take. Your reply was spot on.

I have to assume that their beef is with your request for consistency.

No, the consistency comment is still there. The post they deleted was something like this (the whole thing wasn't quoted in their 'we deleted your post' message - and the post itself is now, duh, deleted):

Clearly Judaism, Christianity and Islam are not the same religion, but all three trace their worship back to the god of Abraham. Islam recognizes Christians and Jews as 'People of the Book', and are treated with greater tolerance than a general infidel like me.
The Koran says [this may have been the worst of my offenses]:
"And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit."
So the Koran explicitly says that the god of Islam and the gods of Judaism and Christianity are the same. At the same time, the Koran warns against getting too friendly with Jews and Christians, and always acknowledges that, while Judaism and Christianity are good, Islam is best.

You sir are certainly doing not-God's work here! :)
