Explain it to me: Ramadan

No food? No drinking? No sex? It's the Muslim month of Ramadan. CNN Religion Editor Dan Gilgoff explains more about this practice from CNN's Belief Blog.

    Muslims give non-Muslims extra hard time during Ramadan. Hypocrites. Their good never exceeds their evil. They should ask the Divine Savior Jesus for forgiveness of sins. No amount of fasting saves anyone. Read the Gospels and the Book of Micah in the Bible for true fasting before God.

    God(Allah) must not forgive any human being except on the basis of the death and resurrection of the Divine Savior Jesus. Forgiving without Jesus' atonement is a form of injustice and unrighteousness. God does not do that.

    i think the world should know this by now that when we are in the month of ramadan, ther are many evil things avoided and apart from that non muslims always respect this month. i will surprise to bad criticsms from any media about this month, it a month of blessing ok; NO FOOD NO DRINKING NO SEX- is just to gain your self blesings which is more than hundreds of months with sex and food ok.
