Christianity and Judaism by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Christianity and Judaism by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
"People of Israel, you are my witnesses; I chose you to be my servant, so that you would know me and believe in me and understand that I am the only God. Besides me there is no other god; there never was and never will be. I alone am the Lord, the only one who can save you. I predicted what would happen, and then I came to your aid. No foreign god has ever done this; you are my witnesses." Isaiah 43:10-12

I'm done here.

(Of course all religions could be considered closed minded, but since I go to a Christian (Catholic) church and this was read last week, it irked me.)

So...do you think there are other god's besides the one and only God? And that they have any ability to save you from the evils of this world? I don't understand why this reference upsets you. .-.

Plus, I disagree that ALL Christians and Jews are closed-minded. I think that is a very closed-minded view in itself,but that's besides the point. Some are, but that's not due to the faith, but because of misunderstandings and hypocrisy, which, sadly, are running rampant through the church nowadays.

The religions themselves yes, but not all of the observers of them.

How exactly is "love thy neighbour as thyself" or something like the Ten Commandments closed-minded? and what about dying for mankind's sins in the way that Jesus did? being crucified is a horrible thing
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crucific…
and doing all this while suffering taunts and jeers by the crowd, and the throned crown. The Ten Commandments are the base of some of the most liberal constitutions in the world, whereas the Egyptians and Persians were such still had obscure cults with strange beliefs such as the Spartans or the Maenads.

You don't seem to understand what 'closed minded' means. Closed minded means "not ready to receive to new ideas" (literally straight from the dictionary). So none of the things you have provided are things that can actually display in any way that the religions are not close minded.

Egyptians and Persians don't have beliefs that are any more obscure than those of a Christian. Christians believe a man made a woman out of a rib bone and then a magic talking snake talked her into eating the magic fruit off a magic tree.

The Bible is a complex book written by many authors and most of its teachings come through symbolism and metaphorical language. For example, the Ten Commandments? thou shalt not steal? thou shalt not murder? Love thy neighbour as thyself? those beliefs aren't obscure. If we took away the status structure that human society cannot possibly survive without, you would find that pretty much everyone held those beliefs. I'm still saying that sacrificing babies to Ba'al and human hearts to the sun are negative and obscure ideas.

Still not any more obscure than some of the things found within Christianity. You're allowed to have your own child stoned to death if they don't listen. If a woman is raped she is supposed to kill herself. How are these things any less obscure or negative than the things you've mentioned? They're not. There are 'good' sides and awful sides to every religion out there and in only mentioning the negative sides of other religions you're sounding pretty closed-minded.
