I love this time of the year. I look forward to reading Christmas cards from my friends. Yesterday, I received a card that took me by surprise. It is little known that Frankfort, IL is home to a mosque. For all the years(26) I have lived here the mosque has been kept a secret. It is on a country road hidden in the woods at the end of a curvy drive so it is hidden from the street. I have no idea as to how many Muslims worship here. So, when I opened my mail I was shocked to find a card from the American Islamic Center shown below.
Could it be that the religion of peace is finally finding religion? Are the Muslims of Frankfort waking up to what it really means to have freedom? I pray they do, because if they can make up their minds to accept that they are a religion, and not a political ideology they can survive in the USA peacefully. What they have to work at over time is convincing us that they will not radicalize, and begin Jihad or self-immolation in the name of Islam.
What puzzles me is why are they suddenly sending cards at Christmas time to wish us all blessings and everlasting friendship? Could it be related to President-elect Donald Trump’s message about the Muslim threat in America?
The Muslim’s guarantee to freedom of religion is based on the premise they do not pose a threat to the Christian population. Contrary to what Obama so boldly announced we are still a Christian Nation. Christians can and will embrace Muslims as friends when they can be confident that doing so will not make martyrs out of us.
I hope they are honest about the wishes expressed on this card for one simple reason, I am at an age where the human body begins to wear out, and I will need medical help in the future. It is damned hard to find non-muslim doctors in this area, and because I have been decreed to be an Islamophobe by Liberals it would be dangerous for me to allow myself to be treated by a muslim for fear of being declared an infidel, and become prey for an easy take down.
