***WARNING*** OFFENSIVE MATERIAL
I'm somewhat reluctant to post the blasphemous nonsense certain Muslims blurt out when they're cornered in an argument, but people who want to get into conversations over the internet need to be aware of an increasingly common problem. Islam is indefensible, so it isn't difficult to corner a critic with an inescapable difficulty. The problem is that when some of the internet apologists for Islam realize that they can't answer an objection, they immediately turn to blasphemy to end the conversation.
Just a few minutes ago, I was having a discussion about the preservation of the Qur'an and the Bible, when a Muslim named Suleman Ali (from Texas) saw that things weren't going his way.
After reading this comment, I pointed out that Suleman was blaspheming the Holy Spirit, to which he replied:
I pointed out again what he was doing, but he simply reaffirmed his statement:
I waited for the other Muslims in the group to rebuke him, but Suleman continued the blasphemy:
By this point, it was clear that the conversation was over, so I had to end it (which was Suleman's intention):
I'm not sure there's a way around this problem. Again, Islam is indefensible, so refuting it is quite easy. In many places in the Muslim world, Muhammad's followers can silence criticism through force. On the internet, however, they can't silence critics through violence, so they have to put an end to the discussion some other way. The latest method for ending conversations for certain Muslims is to start posting the most incredibly blasphemous and offensive comments they can come up with.
This is a sad commentary on the current state of Christian-Muslim dialogue, but Christians who want to reach out to Muslims need to be aware of it.
I guess I'll go take a shower now.
