    Was the new Caliphate inspired by a Glenn Beck chalk talk?

    Why do Christians and Moslems need to unite to convince people to believe in ONE God? Rather they should unite and teach people to follow the golden rule. To treat others with kindness and love. Moslems believe in one God yet the terrorists among them see no conflict with their religion and their actions. How are they any better off than the religions that teach a belief in multiple Gods?

    Another great article by the Great Daniel Peterson. I like how he stays politically neutral in the article.

    I have a friend who is a Moslem scholar and I would consider him to be a 'saint' in the same way as a pious Christian is a 'saint'.

    He shows kindness to the people he meets. He was in New York and he asked a waiter, "So how long have you been in the US?" "3 years." "How is your family?" The man cried, he said, "You are the 1st man to ask about me in 3 years."

    He says that the judges in the time of Mohammad had nothing to do. There were no conflicts. He believes Christians and Moslems should unite to teach people to believe in the one god.

    When he goes to Mekkah he does Umrah for the dead, he says he does it for Eve, our mother.

    I wish for him that he gets his caliphate. But he won't. There are to many fools like these ISIS guys. But I hope that when he dies and he gets to heaven that he can sit down next to Mohammad. I think that he is worthy of the honor.
