Mohammed "Statue" in Belgian Church

mohammed-dendermonde-3.jpg mohammed-dendermonde-1.jpg 

These two photographs were taken in the Church of Our Lady in Dendermonde, Flanders (Belgium). They show the late 17th century pulpit, sculpted in wood by Mattheus van Beveren.  The person subdued by the angels and having a Koran in his hands is generally thought to be Mohammed. The sculpture represents the triumph of christianity over islam.  


Flemish carving

My problem here is, I can see the church authorities removing the "offending" art work because it might upset people who would like to burn their church down and force them to convert. We can't upset them can we? That would be like standing up to intimidation!

Very good statue...

Wonderful statue, can be interpreted in many ways but nevertheless a beauty, we ought to see more like this all around Europe.

Islam: A False Religion

"Behaviorally, the prophet of Allah hallmarks a cult. In other words, we cannot compare Islam to other religions because due to the prophets narcissistic manners, Islam falls in the category of a cult, not a religion. Yes, Islam is a cult founded by an Arab man from Mecca in Arabia, by the name of Mohammed, who lived from 570-632 A.D. A huge problem is that cults are incredibly difficult to dismantle intellectually. The brainwashing is grandiose.

Indeed, the Prophet of Islam's deeds and words, Islamic law and its interpretation, has always been totally intolerant and he practiced an unholy life. According to Muslims, the prophet of Islam was Khataman Nabiyyeen (The last prophet) and Allah will no longer send prophets. Well, if God chose a man like Muhammad who butchered, raped, terrorized, massacred and killed so many innocent people with the sword of Islam as his messenger, then we are dealing with a terrorist God here..."

It's all about Iraq, isn't it?

Yep, it's all about Iraq and...

India and the Sudan and Algeria and Afghanistan and New York and Pakistan and Israel and Russia and Chechnya and the Philippines and Indonesia and Nigeria and England and Thailand and Spain and Egypt and Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia and Ingushetia and Dagestan and Turkey and Kabardino-Balkaria and Morocco and Yemen and Lebanon and France and Uzbekistan and Gaza and Tunisia and Kosovo and Bosnia and Mauritania and Kenya and Eritrea and Syria and Somalia and California and Kuwait and Virginia and Ethiopia and Iran and Jordan and United Arab Emirates and Louisiana and Texas and Tanzania and Germany and Pennsylvania and Belgium and Denmark and East Timor and Qatar and Maryland and Tajikistan and the Netherlands and Scotland and...

...and pretty much wherever Muslims believe their religion tells them to:

"Fight and slay the Unbelievers wherever ye find them. Seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war."
Qur'an, Sura 9:5

That misunderstood religion of peace...

Islamic (terrorists?) have carried out more than 4,733 deadly attacks SINCE 9/11 2001. In last month, the month of march alone they were responsible for 244 attacks, 1280 dead bodies and 1585 critically injured. the (moderate muslim?) response, as always... to deflect, deny and deceive.

To Canaanite re Jesus & Christianity

Ahem! Tell you what, if you tell me what frequency or coordinates you are at
maybe some one can drop something for you..
then you can ask Jesus himself! You think?!?

Odin be Praised!  Baldur Save Us!

the right way.

That shows how much Islam was fought long time ago, because it is the best relegion in the world, and the profit Mohammed(sala al-lah aleh wa salem) is the best man in the world who guids the people to the right way.
The nowadays problem is that people don’t know what islam is. They only hear bad things that others say. Please if you want to judge the Islam, read about it first and get the correct information then we agree about your judgement, but trust me you will find it imazing religion guiding people to the correct way of life; helping both poor and rich people to live peacefully; getting rid off your stres caused by daily problems;and showing how much wommen are valuable and respectfull. This is only veeeeeery small about the Islam. Dont wast your tim and check what is Islam.


Re: the right way

Ahem! Excuse me... the right way for what?
The right way to view "islam". To all the faithful believers in this mishmash of lies, inneundo, specious ramblings, and the mumbo jumbo of a carnival sideshow, you so conveniently cling to and hide behind when you feel like it and call it a religion. Please! read what...the qua'ran...what is the
point! Oh you people make me sick with it. So let me ask you this, I lived among you..Can you explain why the good moderate muslims seem to kiss the bums of all the violent ones all the time! None of you ever protest or declaim about acts of violence perpetrated against the West, against cartoons, slurs and slanders printed in islamic newspapers,against a myriad of injustices..but let one westerner do something and you people are up in arms.
Calling for their blood, retibution and jihad. But that is what the religion is all about! Lie to them Samer, but not to me..I know better. I have seen your faces smiling wildly, dancing with glee in the streets after attacks against the West! Shhh! Do not lie! I have seen it with my OWN eyes! Noted it with the family around me. That's right! Only lieing to another "muslim" is wrong..not a westerner!
Too Late! I have told them all about it!

Odin be Praised!  Baldur Save Us!

I know enough about Islam.

All I need to know about Islam is strapped to the body of murderers in Iraq, Israel, London, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Jordan, Chechnya, Beslan, etc., etc., etc. The echoes of Islam's bomb blasts speak much louder than any meek and subserviant Muslim apologist ever will.

You cannot have it both ways. Islam is either a religion of peace or it is not--it certainly cannot be a religion of peace while its practitioners are blowing up people whenever and wherever it encounters other religions.

You either need to learn what Islam is yourself or take back your religion from the murderers that want all non-Muslims to die. Until that happens, all non-Muslims are going to distrust all things Mohammed. Now, whose fault is that?

Why all this hate to Islam?

I don't really understand: if christians think they are superieur, what they don't let Islam alone?

The koran and Mohammad (plessings of Allaah on him) order us to respect all the other prophets (plessings of Allaah on them) and religions beacuse they come from the same source.

Please do some effort to know the others if you want to judge them.

re; shame on you

Judging from the equally poor grammar from the comment and the website that was reccommended, by gorge, I would hazard a guess that the commenter is the same person running the website. Sadly this site attempts to prove that all the things of scientific observation are explained by the Koran. With no more effect then when any other group of true believers attempt to fit the facts to the faith.

shame on you ..........

if you dont respect others then you dont deserve respect, i dont know what kind of churchs that behave as extreme retarda people, its a shame on chrestianity and its principles if it have some of, you dont know how much is mohammad a great leader and have agreat principles over the whole humanbeing , you must learn and read and search about Islam and mohammad before make a huge mistake like this ,, i am not a muslim but i have agreat respect to islam and its principles i think its a religion of soul and reasonablity if you have time chick this site and tell me then ,

Re shame on you


Shame on muslims for not doing anything, saying anything, criticizing anyone, for perpetrating, slurs, slanders, lies, innuendos, attacks, massacres, murders, bombings, calling for jihad against fast food companies, and shoe manufacturers
because some simple minded, feeble brained, retarded or worse functionally illiterate drooling boob of a islamic moron, thinks that a swirl motif from an ice cream cone or the flame design on a running shoe..can even remotely be taken as the Name of GOD! So listen let me ask you this.. if you find the head of the prophet on a piece of pita bread.. do you eat it, worship it, enshrine it or simply kill the the bakers from whose oven it emerged? There is no need to learn, search or read anything about any of you mohammedans,
or your miserable miscreant religion. The only thing I need to know is this.. when are you going home. Back to the villages full of camel dung that you crawled out on your bellies from, before you slimed your way into the west seeking refuge from the oppressive and restrictive regimes you fled from due to religious persecution ( your particular sect or brand of islam not being hailed and welcome in whatever hole of a country you (being muslims in the west) left from in the first place. Since you do not like the free, tolerant attititude and air you are breathing here, while raping, robbing and trying to terrorize people who gave you places of refuge. *throwing some dollars, kopeks, krone etc at your feet* See if you can get the others to take up a collection to ship your bums back home. Hmmm! Maybe the Iranis will pay your way home. Now get out! Stay out! And stop that incessant drivel and whining.. about being so tortured and misunderstood...Talk to the hand. Cause the elbow is NOT listening! Just say no to muslims!

During WWII American destroyers and frigates were often attacked by kamikaze pilots because of mistaken identity. The pilots were looking for the carriers, battleships and troop transports that were part of the fleet supporting the invasion of Okinawa. Eventually some of the picket ships put up banners with arrows directing the suicide pilots away from them and toward the fleet. I'm wondering how many churches in Flanders will now have signs directing enraged Muslims away from their church and towards the Church of Our Lady?
