Re: Tension from Faith
Remember, Christianity historically never met a religion it could not hate. And based on the evidence, that included all the other Christians. In every nation state where Christianity rose to power all the other religions were either destroyed. And until very recently that included all the other Chapters of Club Christian.

Islam historically has been far more tolerant of other religions, allowing them to continue, protecting their presence and respecting their traditions as long as they did not try to market their position as dominate and paid their taxes.

Judaism is the outlier since it did not practice recruiting or trying to market its position until fairly recently. Historically the only way to become a Jew was to be born as a Jew like Jesus.

Re: Tension from Faith
Roman Catholicism is the traditional Christian Doctrine. No other Chapter of Club Christian can claim preeminence.

a little bit of history
Read more; in particular the Canon 28 from the Council of Chalcedon in 451. It was only after the seat of the Roman Empire was moved from Rome to Constantinople that the Eastern Church was raised to the level of Rome.

How sad that English Law has fallen to such depths.

I don't doubt that you have fallen so far that you would be proud of such utter nonsense or think it actually defends minority and vulnerable groups but once again, if you think that is what I meant it simply shows you are incapable of reading.

Re: Tension from Faith
There is absolutely nothing inscrutable about that sentence.
