Reaching Out to the Third Abrahamic Child

I thought this was a nice, positive story involving the Catholic Church to help offset all the bad vibes oozing from that rapidly-bloating comment thread under that Chinese world map thingie. The Vatican is looking into the possibility of opening up even more to other religions.

Apparently they have one particular religion in mind right now. The Vatican already maintains an official dialogue with Jews. Now it is exploring the third option:

"It is important to enter into discussions with the third 'Abrahamic child' - Islam," Singer said in the statement. "No one in the meetings has underestimated the difficulties in bringing about a meaningful dialogue. But we all agreed that the principle of mutual respect can override differences that exist between the religions."


Hmm...if only our own evangelically-minded administration could be as enlightened...

Screw the Abrahamic triad....

It's obvious it's some kind of homo 3 way kinkfest run by old men that's brainwashed the world.......

Perhaps if we could just bring back a good ol' Temple of Isis heterosexual priestess orgy people would stop needing Paxil to curb their anxiety attacks....

Just a thought

I believe the correct term is Abrahamic red-headed stepchild. The Abrahamic mother and father of this monotheistic family must be damn tired of all the little bastards fighting all the time.

Just silly, Abraham and Sarah only had two children. Well, really, Abraham had two, Sarah had one, and Hagar had one.

This is just another attempt of the Islamic world trying to corrupt history.

Isaac was the son of Sarah, Ishmael the sone of Hagar.

Isaac and all his decendants are the Jews, and the decendants of Ishmael are the Arabs.

For complete details on the story, Genesis 16:1-17:27

Um, Pa've...the person who made that "third Abrahamic child" comment was a Vatican spokesman!!!!!!

No Islamic corruption here, folks. Move along...move along...

So, Christianity is the red-headed step-(love?)child of Judaism & Islam...

Makes sense, -what with the pathological fear of women and/or female divinity, a history of ascetism only rivaled by Buddhists & Hindus, culminating in a diseased approach to human sexuality.

This idea is perfectly shown by the completely wacked idea of creationism, whereby a male god gives "spontaneous generation" to the world in 6,000 years or less. Curiously, no female god is needed...

By that logic alone, Christianity should have no problem w/same-sex marriage, I mean Father, Son & Holy Spirit right? Mary was just a human vessel w/no real contribution to a divine creation right?

So, evidently three-way all male love-fests oughta be on the agenda for the next Southern Baptist convention - Rev. Phelps & family can be the special seminar leaders!

*sniff sniff*

I smell worms.

WHO OPENED THAT CAN???!?

ladybug said...

Well, heck somebody's gotta play the devil's advocate around here. Why should Moody & Stegs get all the glory?

Besides, another Vatican spokesperson just came out saying the Inquisition was a mistake, but legally justified for the times....

Kinda like it was "legally justified" to lock up Japanese Americans during WWII?

Religious/Political fanaticism - it's all bad, all the time!

JUST DON'T DO IT

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition...er...that apparently...um...was a mistake.

Now, stop it. This post has become too silly. Off you go, come on. Come on!

Pa've said...

I don't care who said it. That doesn't make it right!

Alright, brigadier, alright, I'm leaving!
