Imagine my surprise upon receiving this e-mail:
In a perverse way it is pleasantly refreshing to discover that someone was paying attention to what someone from fly-over country BFE has to say about the abomination that is Islam. That my obscure, though pithy, observations would arouse the scrutiny and the ire of the Islamic Internet patrol is sort of flattering in a way. Truth-telling has a way of pissing people off. I get it. But it’s still the truth, and still my right and obligation to point it out.
So let’s just pick this attempt at censorship apart with facts.
- I am an American, which means the First Amendment applies to me. Pakistani law does NOT apply to me. I still have the freedom to speak the truth, especially the truth that is Christianity, because that is the one truth that really matters. If the three Internet subscribers from a third world hole who are sadly deceived into believing in a false god want to attempt to block my free speech, frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass. I am sad for those in Pakistan who need to hear the truth about Islam that their nanny state sees fit to cut them off from the One True God in favor of their idol that cannot save and their governmental system that brings death and destruction to everything it touches. History proves the utter failure and moral bankruptcy of Islamic governance as well as the failure of other fascist states.
- My only question regarding that excessive defensiveness, is that if your false god is really true, then why are you so butt-hurt? I am reminded of when Elijah confronted the false prophets of B’aal. This account is found in 1 Kings 18:20-40, which can be found in the Bible, which is the inerrant word of God. If your god is real, then he should be able to defend himself against “blasphemy” by “infidels.” Hint: The fate of the prophets of B’aal should stand as a warning.
- Everything I said in my post from March 2016 about the false religion of Islam, and how it is really fascism hiding behind an idol, is still 100% true, whether or not someone in Pakistan doesn’t like it. Truth doesn’t change just because it may be unpopular.
- Truth is not relative. Obfuscating, legislating against, or actively opposing the truth does not make it any less true. Case in point: Even if I would choose to “identify” as Shaquille O’Neal does not make me Shaquille O’Neal, nor does it equip me to substitute for Shaquille O’Neal. The reality (which is factual and not relative) is, I am 5’4″, female, horribly nearsighted, deathly clumsy, a breathing definition of a WASP (as in White Anglo-Saxon Protestant), and I have absolutely no aptitude or ability to play basketball.
No, I am clearly NOT Shaq. I like his Icy-Hot commercials though.
It would be nice if verifying truth claims were as simple as observing the clear fact that I am not Shaq, and could not be Shaq even if I claimed to “identify” as Shaq.
I find it most interesting that the “prophet” of Islam advocated spreading that abomination at the end of a sword. By contrast, the real God-Man, Jesus, taught:
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”- Matthew 7:15-20 (ESV)
What are the fruits of Islam? Death, destruction, slavery and oppression.
I am not saying that the history of Christianity has been spotless. We have had our share of apostasy, exploitation and abuses committed by those claiming the name of Christ. Yet true Christianity does not teach conversion at the end of a sword. True Christianity does teach that faith in the One True God comes by hearing (Romans 10:17)- ironically the very thing that the Islamofascists are trying to prevent- and not by force.
If Islam is so great and true, then why is the sword necessary?
