comment According to Catholic tradition, why doesn't God the Father punish ISIS?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because Speculating about God's motives are off-topic here.

comment Why is there a need for a perfect sacrifice? Why does Jesus have to be perfect?
This answer would be acceptable if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. On this site, we're not looking for personal interpretation, but rather focusing on what various Christian groups teach. Answers are also supposed to directly answer the question. As Nathaniel points out, this doesn't address the "why".

comment What prominent Christian thinkers (if any) held to polygenism and if so how did these thinkers view original sin?
Mod notice: Please do not use comments as a means of discussion. We have Christianity Chat for that. Comments have a specific purpose on StackExchange sites. I've deleted the comments that call outside that purpose. I've also cleaned some up that are obsolete due to the recent edit.

comment Which scriptures tells us that Jesus laughed or was happy?
The body of the question asks "Where can I find in the bible that Jesus expressed joy, laughter or happiness?", so the other answers do apply, and yours does not. The title may have asked only about laughing, but the body of the question is answered in the other posts, and does have scripture to support it.

comment What is truly meant when it is said that Holy Scripture is 'inerrant' according to the Catholic Church?
I rolled this back to the previous edit. This last one made this too broad. If you want to see other views, please try the site search. For example, From a Fundamentalist standpoint, what does the phrase “Inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God” mean? has already been asked.

comment “Blessed Virgin” - not Saint?
Edited to clarify by adding the pertinent point from your comment. Just a recommendation, but it's better to try to put complete answers that spell things out explicitly to avoid confusion.

comment Why don't young-earth creationists just explain things (usually considered as miracles) as miracles?
Uh... They do. Perhaps a bit more research to see if all creationists try to explain away the flood before assuming they all do based on "some".

comment Was there a reason why God sent Jonah to Nineveh and not some other city?
As it is, it reads like a personal interpretation rather than an established teaching. See How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

comment Jesus' visit to the Feast of Tabernacles
Please see Types of questions that are within community guidelines and Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening There's a good question in here, but as it's worded, it's open to anyone's opinion. Questions on this site need to be definitively answerable by something other than opinion or personal interpretation. You could phrase it to ask how some specific group interprets that. (Again see the second link for tips on editing this to be reopened)

comment How do new converts to Christianity learn about the Bible, Christian faith, and Christian practices?
@Andrew - sorry, what I meant about asking in Meta was that you should ask a "why was this question closed as too broad" question. Comments are a bad medium for answering that, particularly if you want a detailed explanation. I'd be happy to answer your question there, but not in comments.

comment How do new converts to Christianity learn about the Bible, Christian faith, and Christian practices?
@Andrew - If you disagree with a closing of a question, ask a question on Meta to get community involvement and it'll be addressed there. See this for guidance. That said, I think your question has a very good chance of being reopened. I'm just not going to cast a vote to do so because I'm a moderator and one vote would do it. It's better for the community to do these things.

comment What should be a Christian's attitude when his prayers are not answered?
Please do not answer old off-topic questions. it bumps them to the top of the home page and it's the first thing new visitors see. Then we have to do double-time educating them about site standards, and they get frustrated: "Well then why was that question allowed to be open?" See Can I get feedback on a suggestion for cleaning up old off-topic posts?

comment Can we really claim to have the power of God's heritage?
Hi, it's apparent that you want to participate, but may not quite get what the site is about. I have a few links to help you along.: Newcomers: Be patient. You will get there if you follow our direction. Keep trying, help center, and How we are different than other sites?. No offense, but I'm going to delete this simply because it doesn't match the scope of the question, but don't let that discourage you. Most of us didn't "get" this site at first, me included.
