MUSLIM CABBIES WIN SMUT FIGHT IN NEW YORK


On this one, I'm glad the Muslims won. In terms of their faith and commitment to prayer (sound, practicing Muslims, not radicalized, politicized ones) I think Catholics have much to learn.

After reading the story, do you think Catholic cabbies would do such a thing? And if Catholic cabbies were so motivated by their faith to fight something like this, do you think they would be as successful as the Muslims?

If the cabbies had been Catholic, they would have been scorned, laughed at, and ignored. I am uncomfortable with any comparison of Muslims and Catholics with regard to prayer life or anything else. Muzzies are just another tool the Left uses to attack America and the Church.

The short answer is no. Without a threat violence the Government would not respect them.

However, I personally can and do compare the prayer life of the average faithful Muslim and the average faithful Catholic.

I have such Muslims friends. They are friendly to me, accept me though I look different and have a different faith, they invite me and my child to (non-religious)gatherings, and they pray FIVE times a day and are not emabarassed to be authenically Muslim. They have religious images and sayings prominently displayed in their homes. The children are taught the language of the faith and the family spends several hours on Sundays at the Mosque. They don't schedule 'other stuff' that would interfere with their Sunday obligations.

Shall I continue?...

Now, I am not condone their erroneous beliefs or other things any good Christian should rightly take issue with.
Merely I am saying that we can learn from good example.
As Catholics, we should collectively be ashamed of ourselves.
I wish my home could be half as pious as the homes of the Muslims that I know.

Well, Squeeker, you could get rid of your dogs and stop eating pork...

I'm with SqueekerLamb on this. Without agreeing with the tenets of Islam I can, and do, respect and admire the devout lifestyles of many Muslims. Perhaps it's time more Catholics stood up to the culture's scorn and persecution in the same quiet but courageous way. Witnessing through lifestyle can be powerful and effective. Yes, I think Catholic cabbies would have been scorned, laughed at, and ignored but why is that a reason for not trying?

Devotion, in itself, means little. Hitler was devoted to his lifestyle...no group has ever been more devoted to a lifestyle than the Japanese in WWII. Heretics of every stripe have been devoted enough to die for their erroneous beliefs. Alcoholics are devoted to drink, and progressives and liberals are devoted to destroying the Church. So, Nancy, should we really admire and emulate devotion to a false God?

pinanv525, if I wanted to drive to Florida and ended up in Tennessee instead, does that mean driving is evil? No, it would mean that I have to rethink my route, not my method of getting there. Devoting our energies to following the Lord can't be bad. Wasn't it in Revelation that Jesus said something about vomiting up the lukewarm?

pinanv525 said...

Nancy, So, intentions are everything. The means justifies the end. If Hitler devotedly and righteously killed Jews, it was at least well-meaning, right? Hitler meant to create a perfect Reich, he was only misguided. Well, God bless him, poor thing.
If you want to get to Florida, you get the right map, take the right road, and obey the street signs...like getting to Heaven, so to speak. Muzzies do not follow "the Lord," as you seem to imply. They are heathens, apostates, infidels, and the enemy of the Church. Is that so difficult to understand? You may want to cite a few "nice" Muslims. That is anecdotal and insignificant. If you have a thousand rattlesnakes in your yard, and I tell you that some of them don't bite, what are you gonna' do?

Nancy A. said...

pinanv525, I just knew you were going to go there. I'd like to think you are deliberately missing my point. Note I said devoting "our" energies to the Lord, meaning we as Catholics. Just because someone else is using their energies in a wrongheaded or sinful way, doesn't mean we can't be inspired to be similarly energetic, but in the right and truthful way.

NancyA...I agree with you 100%.
