Click here for previous session       Pope Gregory IX instituted the Papal Inquisition in 1231, but couldn’t stomach the sin of torture. It took twenty years for a pope to shoulder the responsibility and, in the height of irony, that pontiff took the name of Pope Innocent (cough­cough) IV. In 1252 he authorized torture with the papal bull Ad extirpanda. 95 However, some of the clergy must have wanted to get their hands dirty, up close and personal. To accommodate such lofty Christian sentiments, “in 1256 Pope Alexander IV gave them the right to mutually absolve one another and grant dispensations to their colleagues. With this legal and moral issue circumvented, one inquisitor could torture and his companion then absolve him.” 96 So innate understanding didn’t exactly play a major…

Modern alternative life

BismilLah Islam does not allow a Muslim to surrender themselves to lust and desire, as in contemporary ‘civilisation’. Islam recognises the love a man has for women, children, gold, silver, and other possessions. But it provides a limit for the amount of this worldly pleasure which we require, and reminds us of the life in…

Click here for previous session     The concept that God provided revelation without clarifying His Own nature grates painfully against our innate understanding of God as all­merciful, providing clear guidance to all mankind. Standard Trinitarian response? That people would believe if only they understood. Standard Unitarian response? Nobody understands the Trinity—nobody. That’s why it’s a religious mystery. Talk with Trinitarian clergy long enough, bring up the above objections (and those that follow), and sooner or later the confirmed Trinitarian will admit, “It’s a mystery.” The you­just­have­to­have­faith defense is not far behind. The Unitarian typically points out, however, that moments earlier the Trinitarian proposed that people would believe, if only they understood. However, when a legitimate attempt is made to understand, by way of seeking answers to relevant questions, the claim transforms to one of a religious mystery (i.e., nobody understands!). A final defense is the suggestion that, “The only way a person…

6 Muslims who brought Islam to America

6 MUSLIMS WHO BROUGHT ISLAM TO AMERICA  As a Muslim of West African origin living in the United States, my Muslim-ness is always contested by Europeans, Americans, and even clueless Africans. They ask me questions like: “Are you Muslim?” and “Were you born Muslim?” I get asked these questions a lot by Americans because Islam is…

COULD GENDER BE EQUAL

Any attempt to equalise the male and the female genders will be a rude denial of nature. If it is generally believed that the man is much stronger than the woman; that the husband is the head of the family from whom the wife takes orders; that the boy, not the girl-child, should rather be…
