You really should. You've given a bunch of factual claims, but without any sources. Rational people know to check the validity of claims before believing them, but without any sources, they cannot do that, aside from looking them up. But, they shouldn't have to do that - the burden of proof lies with the claim-maker. If you're not going to cite any sources, what's the point of writing all of this? Surely it took some time to write - I'd guess at least 30 minutes, to recall every one of these things - so you might as well include citations. If all of these claims are true, it shouldn't take very long. If you can't find any sources backing your memory up, maybe that means you mis-remembered, or perhaps it's an urban legend.

The man clearly stated reason is not his business. Why do you insist?

Maybe I could change their mind.

IMO you can never do that in the church. Only in real life, outside the church and by practical example.

What? What does the church have to do with what we're talking about? Did you reply to the wrong person?

You are right. Mosque is a more appropriate term, as the church is less often a place of gathering and discussion and more a place of submission and passivity.
