Kashmiri Nomad: Bishop Calls for Return to Roots
September 6, 2006 § Leave a comment
Recently on one of my favorite blogs “The Opinions of a 20th Century Kashmiri Nomad“, my brother and alter-ego the Kashmiri Nomad cites a statement by Bishop Kurt Koch as he responds to the “Strength of Islam” saying,
“If we were to go back to our roots and stand by our own convictions, we could approach other faiths more openly”.
“The problem is not really the strength of Islam, but the weakness of Christianity” (Catholic World News)
The Kashmiri Nomad intelligently questions the Bishop’s statement by revisiting the history of Christianity in an attempt to identify what “roots” the Bishop may be talking about when he writes,
“Most Christians that I have spoken to are ashamed by the “roots” of the Christian Church in Europe. Whether it be burning witches at the stake or killing Jews or heretics, the roots of the Christian Church in Europe are mired in the blood of its opponents. Therefore I find it surprising that the Bishop would want a return to that type of situation.” (ibn Adaam, The Kashmiri Nomad)
That is “surprising”, what roots could the Bishop be referring too? Keep the conversation going by commenting on the post entitled, “The Weakness of Christianity and the Strength of Islam“.
