This man is so afraid of the ideology of the Democrat party and its leaders that he simply can't answer any questions on where he would draw the line on abortions. Even his mother prays the Holy Rosary with his aunt each night for his conversion. And you can tell from the sound of his voice he knows he is on the wrong side of God, loves the ideology of the democrat party or fears its leaders more than he loves God or fears God. But a bit of fear is there and thus hope for this apostate's conversion:

Father McDonald,

Off topic but here is another example of insanity coming out of the Vatican:

"The same folks to bring you “Abrahamism”—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman,” in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy. In a ten-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam,” the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions.

This may be easier said than done — at least for those still interested in facts. For starters, the claim that Mary was a “Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman” is only two-thirds true: yes, she was a Jew by race and background; and yes, she was a Christian in that she literally birthed Christ(ianity); but she was most certainly not a Muslim — a term and religion that came into being 600 years after Mary died.

Worse, far from being the Eternal Virgin, as she is for 1.5 billion Christians of the Catholic and Orthodox variety, Islam presents Mary, the Mother of Christ, as “married” to and “copulating” with Muhammad in paradise — a depiction that would seem to sever rather than build “bridges.”

Why not throw in Buddhism?

Neither is Mary a "Tower of Ivory," but that does not prevent us from using the image "Tower of Ivory" to describe the characteristics of a person of notable, even heroic, faith.

Judaism in not a "race" any more than Catholicism is a "race." The notion that it is a race has been used to perpetuate anti-semitism. From "Ask the Rabbi,": "Judaism cannot be classified as a race, because anyone can become a Jew by converting. The convert is considered a Jew in every regard, and his relationship with God is the same level as that of every other Jew. Come to Israel and you will find black Jews, oriental Jews, Indian Jews, etc."

Given what was posted above you, it seems blasphemous to associate Mary with Islam in any way, shape or form. Tower of Ivory is an analogy, the "religion of Peace" is not

“Islam presents Mary, the Mother of Christ, as “married” to and “copulating” with Muhammad in paradise.”

Please tell us where Islam makes this claim. My bet is that it originates in a “weak” hadith, of which there are thousands.

You are welcome to do your own research but perhaps you should examine the main premise of the absurdity of claiming Mary is a bridge with Islam, a very dubious religion

"You are welcome to do your own research..." is one of the most common cop-outs around. It may be second only to "Do your own homewoprk and report back to us."

People, having heard some tid-bit of "data" they THINK represents the truth about Islam, or Catholicism, or Democrats, or Republicans, or Yankees, or Southerners will repeat it and repeat it, having done Z-E-R-O research to verify their factoid.

THEN, along comes someone with evidence to the contrary and it's "Do your own research" time.

Ah, that is the problem, isn’t it? It is not my responsibility to do the research—it is your (and others’) responsibility to do the research before propagating irresponsible, inaccurate, and scurrilous material all over the internet. This same post appears on dozens and dozens of websites—and guess what, when a citation to authority is given, it seems to be to a weak (or perhaps even a fabricated) hadith.

Moral—Facts matter! I know just enough about Islam to keep me out of trouble. Some people know just enough about Islam to cause trouble. To be truly well versed in Islamic legal science, including the hermeneutical techniques needed for the study of hadith, takes years of study—like having to go the law school before becoming a lawyer. Again, don’t believe everything you read on the internet, on Facebook, etc.

Now, there may be some more radical Islamic scholars who might make such a claim about Mary based on such a hadith but that is a different question.

If you want an analogy in the Christian tradition, think about the reliability of the Gnostic Gospels or the Donation of Constantine.

And as for your general characterization of Islam, how much do you really know about it and what are your sources of information? More specifically, do you understand just how revered Mary is in Islam (including the Virgin Birth of Jesus)?

I know plenty about Islam having studied the subject at Notre Dame under a gentlemen who was a peritus on Islam at Vatican II. He was admirer but was intellectually honest enough to discuss its flaws

Anonymous locking horns with Anonymous 2,

A2 has a very valid point. When something is presented as a fact for the purpose of rebuttal, citations are needed or the claim does not offer any support.

Go over to Father Z and argue with him. It will not go well. Anonymous 2, unlike Father K, is a nice man and reasonable. I do not post indefensible comments.
