Hey, you, Terrorist Joe- your freedom of religion ends when your “religion” tells you to kill me.
I’ve been watching the events of the world unfold for the past few weeks (actually I am a more avid observer of current events and of history’s unfolding than I appear to be) and I have a few observations I believe are worth sharing.
First of all, Barack Hussein Obama is a joke- a sad, sick and deadly joke, but still a joke. I’ve known this since 2008 when I saw this ass-clown running for president, and I thought (erroneously, sadly enough) that the American people couldn’t possibly be that stupid. However, a little creative fixing by the Chicago machine, a complete whitewash (pun intended) of a shady character’s nebulous past, and a lame, senile Republican candidate (remember John McCain?) to run against, and we have the first ever foreign traitor squatting in our White House. Repeat in 2012 just to make it interesting- all made easier because now there are even more illegals and dead people voting Democrat than ever before. So we are still burdened with this effete, weak, and completely clueless wanna-be dictator squatting in our White House, blithely putting out the welcome mat for every radical Muslim terrorist nut job in the world.
I bet these girls led some pretty lonely lives.
I freely admit that I am as white, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant as the day is long, so I can’t say that I’m an authority on Islam or that I can attest to what ALL Muslims believe. I freely admit that when I was taking adult Confirmation classes (late 1980s) that our Pastor taught that Islam is a cult and a false religion. He didn’t go in depth about Islam except to point out that it is a counterfeit, a poor substitute for the truth, and that Muslims deny the divinity of Christ. That being said, obviously they are not Christians. I can deal with people not being Christian. I have a good number of friends who claim to be atheist for what it’s worth.
I am not one of those obnoxious individuals who insists that everyone who believes differently than me is going to fry in the eternal fires of hell. I believe in hell, and that there will be people who end up there, but I generally don’t try to shove my interpretation of Christianity on anyone. As a confessional Lutheran (as well as someone who pretty much also subscribes to Molinism,) I believe humans are powerless to bring themselves to saving faith. It’s God Who does the saving. Now the Holy Spirit can and does work through people, and as a Christian I am supposed to let that happen, but as far as winning hearts… that’s not something I can do- apart from God Himself.
While as a Christian I would be thrilled to see everyone come to saving faith in Christ, in this country one has the right under the First Amendment to worship whoever, or whatever, or nothing at all. It’s none of my business if you want to bark at the moon, hail Satan, or worship a 1993 Ford Escort- as long as none of that involves pushing your religion off on me, or worse, killing me if I don’t dance around your particular tree.
From what I have discerned, Islam was founded upon the visions of a deranged individual (Mohammed) who devised a bastard theology that mixed together the worship of an Arabic moon-god with some elements of Judaism and Christianity, with a little bit of child molestation and bestiality thrown in there for fun. Oh, and let’s not forget how Islam regards and treats women.
While the burqa would save time on hair styling and makeup, it would make driving a bit awkward. Walking too.
I don’t care if you really want to believe in the false religion of Islam- or if you want to bark at the moon or pee on trees- that’s your business- until you take it to the point where you believe that you have express permission to kill everyone who doesn’t subscribe to the same ideology.
I agree with Donald Trump that people who buy in to the belief system of radical Islam should not be permitted to immigrate to the United States. As long as there are Islamic terror groups who chant “Death to America” and who think it’s OK to annihilate the “infidels”- and who are doing so with impunity around the world- then they can keep themselves and their belief system back in the third world holes from which they came.
I don’t understand why people can’t see the parallels between Islamic terror groups and Nazism. Some will be quick to say that Nazism was a political ideology rather than a religion. I would be even quicker to say that radical Islam is even more evil as a political ideology because it uses a (false) religion as a smoke screen for its true nihilistic purpose. All Hitler had to fly on was junk science and fabricated Nordic myths.
Winston Churchill once said that “Islam in a man is like rabies in a dog.” The sad thing about both rabies and radical Islam is there is no cure for either apart from killing the host organism.
Radical Islam is an evil, nihilistic force in this world that is fatal (like rabies) and much like Nazism, seeks to spread and kill and destroy anything that contradicts it. Allowing more of this nihilistic ideology into the United States or any other civilized part of the world is pure idiocy and ignorance.
Where is common sense? Why can’t we call evil what it is?
