Don't all three religions worship the God of Abraham?Originally posted by: StepUp
Completely off topic, but I have no idea how you can say that those 3 religious groups worship the same god. On topic, I think there are compelling argument on both side.Originally posted by: RY62

We should keep the muslims out, probably would be safer. Just look what's happening to Europe. You want that here?
Political correctness is going to be the downfall of society.
It's going to happen to us anyways some way or another, already happening with Mexicans. Oh well. I just won't have any kids.
On the cultural issue, I often wonder how there can be so much animosity between Christians, Jews, and Muslims. We all worship the same God.
From wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abrahamic_religions
An Abrahamic religion is a monotheistic religion that includes Abraham (Hebrew: Avraham ????????? ; Arabic: Ibrahim ??????? ) as part of its mythology. Prominent examples are Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Baha'i.
It is the choice of Abraham as a common label that makes them Abrahamic. It stems from his reputation as the "Father of many", which is the literal meaning of his name. He is claimed by Jewish tradition as the ancestor of the Israelites through his son Isaac (Is'haq in Arabic, Yitzchak in Hebrew). By Muslim tradition his other son Ishmael (Isma'il in Arabic, Yi?ma?el in Hebrew) is the ancestor of the Arabs including Muhammad, thus making Abraham an ancestor to all later prophets, since all, except Muhammed, were descended from Israelites. Christians refer to Abraham as a "father in faith" (see Romans 4); the phrase may also be meant to suggest that all three religions come from one source.
