Turn the other cheek

A gentle reminder, taken from the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 5, verses 38-48.

An Eye for an Eye
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Love for Enemies
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

This is my response to those who would slander the Catholic Church.

In the words of Jesus whom those vile beings (They do not deserve the religion they claim to carry nor the species they are supposed to be from) from the Gospel of Luke, chapter 6, verse 31:

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Might I ask these men: When can I, as a Catholic, come to your mosque to do the same thing?

    I don’t even really know what to say. There should only be so much stupid in the world. And in the end, was their original purpose fulfilled? (I didn’t want to read & trawl through the trash.) Or is it yet another half-assed attempt at playing “journalist”?
