The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
and Islam?

I dislike Green Jell-O Salad more than I do hummus.

Slavic Languages / Re: Icon translation

Did you translate that yourself, Rapha? If so, what source did you use?

That might be true but that doesn't explain why some Christians today doesn't seem to understand that being gay in itself is not any kind of issue.

Good point.

Oddly enough, just a little earlier today the thought popped into my head that for some fundamentalists the question is not so much whether gay Christians need to be celibate, or even whether it's okay for them to come out of the closet, but whether they should exist at all.

Very accurate. That's the crux of the controversy in Evangelical circles right now. The celibate solution, where it's even known, isn't being seriously entertained by either side.

Not really the Brazilian case, where it's basically former Protestants. Maybe it's their da'wah method here.

Yeah, I took one years ago. For me, it was an easy course that filled a math requirement. In terms of actual usefulness, it could be I got some benefit from filling all those truth trees but it would be subconscious.

"Truth trees." ::)

It does look like interesting stuff. Might make more sense in the context of the history of computer science.

And for analytic "philosophy."

t;ftfy

What do you constitute philosophy as?

Certainly not something that was showily developed, mostly by mathematicians, for the purpose of destroying philosophy.

On the contrary, Analytic Philosophy and Mathematics only build each other up, and have become inseparable in certain areas. Ever hear of Set Theory? Truth is, Philosophy is a diverse subject unlike any other, and seeps itself into every other subject matter. That's why Philosophy has areas like Aesthetics but also the Philosophy of Science.

You're missing the point.

Would you kindly explain?

Western Rite Discussion / Re: What on earth is the deal with leavened hosts???

Does anyone have a picture of these unconsecrated leavened hosts that they could share? I would just visit a Western Rite Orthodox parish, but there are none near me and, due to a series of tragic and difficult events over the past several years, I need to work on getting back to my regular ol' heretical "Roman Catholic" Mass that I have been unable to attend for quite some time before I go visiting other Churches.  ;D

Mormonism, for the same reason I dislike other pseudo-Christian sects, like Charismatism.  It purports to be Christianity and confuses people.  Islam, while vile in many ways and more dangerous in a temporal, physical sense, is not as seductive to those who still think they believe in Christ when they embrace the Mormon "Christ", or the Holy Spirit when they embrace the Marquis of Snakes or whichever other foul entity from the pit is causing them to writhe on the floor and jabber in pseudo-tongues.
Well, Muslims do love to seduce Christians with the whole Isa/Maryam thing. Most Muslims I met were former Christians who didn't seem to think much changed beside this whole mushrik Trinity thing.

Western young people are converting to Islam for cultural reasons, not because they're following Christ into new fields of doctrine or something like that.
