    Well, no, that's not necessary true.
    You may actually believe that NO Muslim actively seeks to convert others.
    That just makes you wrong; its not a lie unless you KNOW what you're saying is false.

    (Of couse, I believe you KNOW what you're saying is false)

    Too bad they aren't encouraged to spread the truth like there is no God!

    Oh wait how else could we convice an 18 year old kid to sacrifice his/her young life without telling them that they won't really be dead when that IED blows their head off they'll just go to heaven instead.

    Same way those Taliban guys get little kids to blow themselves up, go figure

    With ****e like this there can't be a God.
    We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.

    Oh please.
    I have never seen Muslims nagging people in the street with leaflets.
    Nor knocking on doors.
    NOR going into countries abroad that does not already have a Muslim majority and trying to convert Non Muslims.
    Not handing out aid to Africa along with a bible and telling them to find Jesus.

    I don't care. Quality over quantity but for Christians it seems to be the opposite.
    It's ridiculous to say Muslims actively seek to convert Non Muslims.
    One or two is nothing. It generally does not occur.

    Perhaps. Anything CAN lead to something. Amazing isn't it. Spread the good Word and people will still preach to others despite the threat of death.

    Not to mention they are not there to spread the Bible or whatever other religion. They are there to do a job that they are paid for.
    Rules are broken all the time. But I understand your anger.

    If Soldiers wish to help people "to" Jesus. Do it when you are off duty and out of the country
    A soldiers job is to kill people and break things. So in essence they are helping them to Jesus.

    This is nothing to be concerned over. Hardly anyone gives a **** what the Chaplain says. They come in, make everyone wake up, stop eating, stop reading, stop playing their PSP so we can all get together and listen to them run their mouths for about ten minutes. Most of the troops are just looking at their watches, waiting for him to shut up, so they can go back to doing whatever it was they were doing before this jerk interrupted their free time. Honestly, this is nothing to be worried about. Troops don't care about converting anyone. They care about the following things:

    1. Avoiding death.
    2. Avoiding injury.
    3. Sleeping and eating.
    4. The occasional port-a-potty fantasy.

    That's it, nothing more to it. Perhaps there are a few morons who think it's alright to go around trying to convert people but they'd never actually be allowed to do it. Their squad-leader, or team-leader, or platoon commander would just tell them to stfu and watch their sector. Seriously, Im laughing right now just thinking about someone in my team trying to convert an Iraqi during a combat patrol. I would have punched the **** out of them.

    Laila...just don't. It's so not worth it to mire yourself in a fruitless conversation with that one. Just let it go and save yourself the frustration.

    What a wonderful argument.
    Has so much substance, i can even imagine the evidence you are giving me.

    Stop BS'ing
    We all know you are wrong.
    Actively converting is a Christian and only Christian thing to do.
    Don't foist your baggage onto the rest of us
