In Redemption of Saint Augustine and the Muslim Brotherhood

Throughout time the ideology of power has infected the original

ethos of Muslim and Christian communities in a variety of ways.

But if one looks closely, we can see grains of truth scattered

throughout the different adaptations and formulations of Muslim

and Christian theology...

Does Jesus see Muhammad as a true Prophet?

Muhammad begins with a message of right living and peace, but once he is thrust into the dilemma of his people being killed en masse, he and his community must decide wether or not fighting in self defense is the right thing to do.....

A Response To Russell Brand and The Westboro Baptist Church

After watching this video:

I find myself once again annoyed with how the popular media chooses to portay faith issues. The majority of the people at the Westboro Baptist church are family members. The only reason why they keep getting playing time is because they are ridiculious and we like to make fun of them.

Atheists are Godless; Yet Blessed

Sexual Sin and the Hijab

My first real reason to live came sometime between the ages of 

nine and 11. I was searching the Internet for a Calgary Flames

link. I eagerly anticipated the next Goddess. The naked lady, as if 

overnight, became the reason to wake up in the morning.

When religious leaders desire for power and wealth infiltrate their

social construct, Christianity goes from being a religion for

the oppressed and the lower classes to a religion of violence and

hatred. In a similar vein Muhammad and the early “rightly guided

caliphs” were devoted to a new revelation of justice and social

Does Allah Support Violence and Invasion?

Both the Bible and the Quran have often been used to support

violence and invasion throughout history. And both refer to the

supposive Canaanite genocide and invasion of their land as a

decree given directly by God. In a world of Christian colonization

and controversial wars like in Iraq and Afghanistan, can the Bible

and the Quran be faithfully read against violence? Can they share 

in illuminating a just, merciful, and peaceful God?

Through the Eyes of Children

Leaders of man-made power structures will always be willing to

exploit the most vulnerable people in society (ei: children and

immigrants) for their own unquenchable desire for power and

wealth. The early Christians and Muslims defended vulnerable

people like children and made them essential to the plan of
