Sophia Edet said...

Any religion that requires you to shed your own blood or the blood of another man is satanic. I'm my own faith, Jesus shed his own blood and that was the greatest sacrifice ever made. He did that so there will be no more blood shed for any sacrifice, ritual of whatever, not even the shedding of animal animal blood is permitted.

Worst religion on the planet.sensless men and women u slaves of allah are.any one who reads bible old testament will quickly identify this as idolatry very similar to those mentioned in the bible.same as that going round that black hole in mecca.a pagan practice that even came before mohammed.religion that dashes people stupidity on a spiritual level.even a goat named satan would know better than to go to mecca at hajj time.but they keep expecting a powerful being like satan to wait for stoning every year.stone whey una done stone since never kill am.choi.after this now they will start looking for christains to kill and under age girls to rape.how can someone who does this to himself have mercy on u.islam synonym of evil stupidity........linda please don't swallow this again.or is to post comment now too much?I commented 11 am.but 11:16 is showing.

Pls mind what you say biko, two days ago Linda posted story abt pple walking on hot charcoal and anoda in China or so who were using all sought of dangerous weapons to pierce their body all in the name of religious ritual. That's their culture and has nothing to do with Islam @ Henry biko.

It has nothing to do with Islam, na their culture. Ashura day is meant for fasting and seeking for forgiveness nothing more.

You dnt remember seeing circumcision in the bible? You are either a muslim who has never seen a bible before and is masquerading as a christian...or you are just a sick pathological liar.

IBRO said...

The comments are getting hot.Let's leave the two main religion out of this.

Anonymous said...

The contrasting part of this drama is that the shiites moslems who do this ritual can never ever engage in suicide bombing or unprovoked attack of the innocent whereas the sunni moslem that claim civilised islam are the ones responsible for all the bombings in the world and go as far as killing these innocent shiites during their feasts and ritual. World of contradiction. Pls be guided in ur utterrances; we all have seemingly bizarre religious practices to outsiders. Judge not for the Lord searches the heart of man.

Beecee said...

This is the reason why there is so much killing in the name of religion.Tell me why these people doing this to themselves in the name of religion will not find it easy to butcher any offender if been provoked

Omg dis is totally stupidity in the highest order, Thank you JESUS CHRIST that I'm a Christian, I so much pity the Muslims cos dey r all blindfolded, so easily to b brain wash, inshort d Muslims r d biggest global problem we r having in world. Repent and accept Jesus Christ cos he his the truth and the light, so fuck other religion.
