As the days go by our hard won freedoms and liberty are slowly being eroded. In Europe a crushing blow has been made to freedom of speech with a European Court of Human Rights upholding a conviction for saying that the person known as Muhammad ten centuries ago was technically a paedophile based on information in historical texts. The statement was made in reference to Muhammad's marriage to a six year old child name called Aisha. The court found that “Presenting objects of religious worship in a provocative way capable of hurting the feelings of the followers of that religion could be conceived as a malicious violation of the spirit of tolerance, which was one of the bases of a democratic society.”. In giving its ruling that "Muhammad was not a worthy subject of worship" the court has additionally demonstrated a complete misunderstanding as to the religion involved which worships "Allah", a word meaning 'God', not 'Muhammad' who claimed to be a prophet of this god. Freedom of speech is dying.

    Judaism isn't "subsequent" - it's the original. Jesus would have been brought up Jewish, if he's supposed to be descended from David. Judaism isn't "anti Jesus", it's "before Jesus and therefore not including Jesus ". And by the way, if the guy had written his own damn book, maybe he would have been called a prophet, except the political situation was sort of tense what with the Roman occupation and all.

    Judaism isn't original, Babylonian mythology is.

    Jesus would have been executed by haredim for being a heretic. Oh wait, he did. kek.

    Judaism is a bad copy, perverted by political realities of early rabbis and desert realities of israelites.

    The core thing that you forget, is that Daud was not actually following judaism, and neither did Suleiman.

    The imagery was colonised by the other people, who have as much claim to the holy land, as Ukrainians have to Moscow City.

    Judaism in a nutshell:
    - The LORD is on our side, will send us a messiah that will heal the blind and the deaf and lead us to conquer all humanity
    - hey, there is that Jesus guy who reportedly healed the blind and the deaf and his followers are in all parts of the world.
    - Nah, too much of a friend of the gentiles, we pass.
    2000 years of more or less disguised attempts at political/cultural dominance (without disdain for the arsenal of tricks of the devil) and correlated suffered persecution follow. I say correlated, not casually linked, envy is a thing.

    I mean, if you believe in Christ it is a no brainer, but even if you don't believe, you gotta concede it looks more of a fork than the other branch.
