1. You can't build a mosque in Vatican.<br />
2. There is absolutely NO Christian population in Saudi Arabia, why should we build a church there, in order for Muslims to go pray there or what exactly?
Before the Europeans settled in America the Natives had no Christianity either. Unfortunately it was forced on the Natives. Saudi Arabia is smart not to allow churches, christians are notorious for trying to convert non-christians.
The church building is restricted only in Maccah and Al Madinah where Al Kabba and Al Masjed Al Nabawi are and that is because they are two out of the three most holiest places for the entire Muslim world, so as a Muslim country they have the right to keep only these two places pure for Muslims, plus there are no Christians in Saudi Arabia, it doesn't make the slightest sense to build any churches there, what is the point!
The point is to know if it is allowed.
It is not allowed to be built in the two mentioned cities as these cities contain two holy places for Muslims which are mentioned by the prophet, thus, it is an exception and churches building should be restricted over there, other than that, you can find churches in all the Muslims countries.
Wrong..to all ...there are Christians there...unfortunately as soon as they are discovered they are killed...nice...Truth is God will not be. Mocked....
There are Christian there...unfortunately they are killed as soon as they are discovered
Huh nice try! There are Christians there and they are being killed, however, no one heard of it but you! LOL!
Either you say something with authentic sources or do not comment on my answer lying!
Freedom of religion does not exist in all countries.
That is very true. I love & respect my president but when he ends his speech with "God Bless You" I get HIGHLY annoyed!
Rubbish. Religion isn't forced on people in New Zealand or Norway, for example. Atheism has been forced on people too, people were tortured and killed - don't see you frothing at the mouth over that.
I'm pretty sure more deaths have occurred because of a certain religions being forced on people rather than not. That being said peoples religious beliefs or lack of should not be forced on anyone.
People were not killed in the name of atheism, another worship, the cult of the infallible leader/party (in the name of the people) was forced onto them.
True but freedom of heart is available to everyone God created...so men is without excuse....
You can't build a mosque in Vatican City (de facto country), Saudi Arabia is like one big Vatican City.. that's why.
A Serb can't enter Merika without visa,but Merikan can enter any Balkan country like it belongs to him.Why these double standards?
Islam is simply not as tolerant of other religions on their turf. Problem is SOME of them are spreading their intolerance all over the world at an alarming rate. On the bright side I bet the Mormons and the Jehovahs Witnesses don't bother anyone in Dearborn, Michigan!
That is like asking why aren't women allowed any rights in saudi arabia(not allowed to drive for 1) but they are in other parts of the world. It is all about control of the masses and if people are allowed to actually decide for themselves what they want then the gov't would be out of a job.
satan tries to turn all non believers against Christ, and he always will. The worlds ignorance of him leads them to do his bidding. Tolrence is for all faiths except Christianity. Politicians are more tolerant of Islam than Christianity in America!
You cannot build a church in Mecca and Medinaa in Saudia because these two cities are restricted and exclusive to only Muslims. However other cities of Saudi like Jeddah ,Dammam etc have and are allowed to build churches for Christian believers.!
it is still a double standard then, there shouldn't be any restrictions based on religious beliefs. Don't we all worship the same God?
Yes 'but there's no definitive answer that i can give that won't change the fact, that we aren't living in a "perfect world"! This is a debate for religious leaders and theologians ,take care!
Christians are not tolerated...but we better tolerate everyone...or the crosses go up
You are so right. However, God is in charge and He told us all these things must come to pass.
Thank you...yes God is Soverign
Multiculturalism is a feature of western culture almost exclusively.
It's our greatest strength and weakness. On one hand it means we take successful ideas and make them our own, on the other hand it also makes us the only self hating culture on earth. If you suggest to anyone else that their culture isn't the best in the world they'll get annoyed but westerners are only too willing to agree with you which means that the success of western culture is always under threat from the inside.
We don't do what other countries do, because it would foolish. Who ever is ruling at the time determines this finer points for religion and culture.
Because for 600 years Muslims have PLANNED to have a mosque in the home of Christianity. To have a Church in Saudia Arabia (let alone Mecca) would simply be counter productive. It is a political statement of the Islamic ideology. To infiltrate, outbreed, then have laws changed - to use the freedoms of democracies against themselves - to convert the world by stealth or by the extermination of non-muslims one way or the other has been the order of the Koran since inception.
Saudi Arabia and all muslims are afraid that if they allow Churches to be bulit and allow freedom to practice Christianity, then many muslims will leave Islam as they will see the 'truth'. Why do you think they kill all converts and discriminate against non muslims?
Saudi Arabia is a strict Muslim country whose citizens are all Muslim. It's only the expatriate community that has the Christians and they do practise their faith, albeit underground. It's not flaunted and that's just the way it is. Many people do disagree that this is not the true way to follow Islam but their country, their rules. If a country on the whole is going to forbid one from wearing blue suede shoes, so be it...
Because religion is stronger in Saudi Arabia.
Religion maybe...but itbisn't about religion it is about relationip with God...
It is about how serious people are about religion, how central it is in their society and politics, how enfranchised people are.
Because muslims are sneaky ****** - paying for mosque to be built all over the world and exporting as many people as possible. They will fail in the USA - no more mosque in USA tell your congressman today!! It is a political movement wrapped in a religious cloak.
