    WESTERN academic whose field of study is religious history. “Divine revelation” to them is probably only a Godiva chocolate.

    The Reza Aslan love parade never seems to end. Guess he won’t stop until the liberals make him the Mufti of America (Ha Ha [Nelson Laugh])

    After watching one if his interviews (on fox news I think)I was shocked to hear his views on Islam as a Muslim. I’m picking out just 1 point from many here – why does he disagree with the Qur’an’s interpretation of Jesus NOT being crucified?

    I’m I missing something?

    well it is Yahoo news, don’t expect much intelligence from there

  • Hiding in “dark corners” – and behind “freedom of speech” – while at the same time opposing freedom of speech for those who oppose them!

  • …and this isn’t “terrorism?!”

    Tennessee judge rules infant’s name must be changed from ‘Messiah’

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/08/11/tenn-judge-changes-infant-name-from-messiah-says-it-could-put-him-at-odds-with/?test=latestnews#ixzz2bo8rwa8L

    A judge in Tennessee changed a
    7-month-old boy’s name to Martin from Messiah, saying the religious name
    was earned by one person and “that one person is Jesus Christ.”

    Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew ordered the name change last week, according to WBIR-TV
    . The boy’s parents were in court because they could not agree on the
    child’s last name, but when the judge heard the boy’s first name, she
    ordered it changed, too.

    “It could put him at odds with a lot of people and at this point he has had no choice in what his name is,” Ballew said.

    It was the first time she ordered a first name change, the judge said.

    Messiah was No. 4 among the fastest-rising baby names in 2012,
    according to the Social Security Administration’s annual list of popular
    baby names.

    The judge in eastern Tennessee said the baby was to be named Martin DeShawn McCullough, which includes both parents’ last name.

    The boy’s mother, Jaleesa Martin, of Newport, said she will appeal.
    She says Messiah is unique and she liked how it sounded alongside the
    boy’s two siblings — Micah and Mason.

    “Everybody believes what they want so I think I should be able to
    name my child what I want to name him, not someone else,” Martin said.

    Ballew said the name Messiah could cause problems if the child grows up in Cocke County, which has a large Christian population.

    “The word Messiah is a title and it’s a title that has only been
    earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ,” the judge
    said

    French Muslims fear surge in attacks by far-right militants

    (Reuters 3 hours euters) – Muslim leaders in the French city of Lyon said on Monday they feared a surge in attacks on mosques in the style of one averted last week in which a soldier was arrested on suspicion of planning a shooting during an Islamic feast holiday.Anti-Muslim incidents have risen steadily in recent years in France, home to Europe’s largest Islamic minority, according to the Committee against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), which blames anti-Muslim rhetoric by far-right politicians.A far-right activist said such violence had been provoked by government efforts to suppress “nationalist movements” that provided a legitimate outlet for discontent.Kamel Kabtane, rector of the Grand Mosque of Lyon, called on local Muslims to gather for a show of solidarity at the suburban Minguettes Mosque, which police said the soldier arrested on Saturday planned to shoot at on the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday.The 23-year-old, from an air force base near Lyon, was placed under formal investigation on Monday, accused of “possessing category 4 ammunitions in relation to a terrorist undertaking”. Described by the interior ministry as holding extreme right-wing views, he was also accused of lobbing a Molotov cocktail at a mosque near Bordeaux last year.”There is a clear will today to hurt the Muslim community,” Kabtane said, adding that two minor acts had been carried out against mosques in southeastern France over the weekend.”These are no longer isolated acts. It feels like there is a whole organization being put in place,” he said.RISING ANTI-MUSLIM VIOLENCEFrench media say such incidents have increased by 50 percent in the first half of 2013. The presence of far-right militants at anti-gay marriage protests highlighted half a dozen shadowy extremist groups the government has since shut down.
