The current run by Muslims to be offended by everything American, Christian, or cultural has me wondering why these people come to America. What bothers me even more is the way Americans are bending over backwards to accommodate them in these demands. Our schools teach Islam against our will, cities and states consider implementing sharia law, and our cultural identity is threatened by Muslims who are offended by girls in bikinis, or women who don’t wear the head scarves. They are offended that we don’t set aside special prayer rooms in all public places so they can pray where ever they are. One of the things I learned recently is that Obama had a prayer room set up in the Whitehouse for his Muslim visitors and staff. What ever happened to separation of church and state? I guess that only applies if the state is a republic, and the religion is Christian.
What does it matter to our liberal compatriots that I am offended by all of this back bending, and politically correct non-sense?
Is Islam a religion or a political ideology? If it is a pure religion then I agree it has First Amendment protection. If it is a political ideology it has no place within the boundaries of the United States because it is in direct competition with our own laws and political system. Having two systems presiding over the same population is madness.
The problem as I see it is that Islam is both a political and religious system at the same time. They sincerely believe that their religious laws prevail over civil laws. They argue that they cannot abide by civil laws because laws passed down from God prevail over all man-made law. There in lies the dilemma. When we pick on them they cry that they are protected by the First Amendment. At the same time it is no secret that Muslims want to spread Islam to the whole world. In my book that smacks of a religious coup d’état. If we pick on them for preaching revolution in their mosques they again hide behind the First Amendment.
If we in America want to tolerate Muslims in this country as a religion, we must make Muslims agree to separate their political stance from the religious one by revising the Koran. That means they would have to agree to live by the laws of the country over the doctrine of their Koran. Secondly, we must strictly limit the number of Muslims within the USA to less than ten percent of the population. That would be an impossible goal because they can double, triple, and quadruple their numbers by procreation and consider it a religious duty to do so.
No doubt Muslims will argue that they cannot revise the Koran since it is the word of God. I am troubled by that. Mohammed sold them a story that he was contacted by God in a vision and by a human messenger who gave him the rules. Yep! I buy that hook line and sinker.
Why didn’t Mohammed just buy into the New Testament bible of the Christians? Jesus who is the Son of God walked this earth and taught his disciples how to live. Four of them wrote the bible and told the same story giving it believability. So, here we have two religions both professing to adore one true God. Both have complete teachings handed to them by God. Except the Islamic version came six hundred years after the Christian version. The Christian version teaches the sanctity of Life, while the Islamic version has no regard for life.
Christ came as the Son of God born human. While Mohammed was a war lord who put together a pretty solid set of laws that came in a dream, and he convinced a desert filled with warring tribes to believe. I add that he made them believe by giving them a choice to believe, or to lose their heads. He was smart enough to incorporate all the cultural components of these tribes to allow them a buy in. In other words, Islam is a religion tailored to the barbaric, killing, nomadic tribes of the Mid East.
I am also offended by the Islamists forcibly passing off their God as the one true God, when Jesus Christ is the Son of the one true God. Since there is only one God we are fighting over a way to worship the same Deity. Christianity was birthed by man who was the SON of God, it spread to men of many cultures. It is my contention that Islam is a worship system that fits the culture and lifestyle of nomadic tribes of the Mid-Eastern deserts. Since Christianity is based on the sanctity of life, and Islam on the sanctity of death I propose Christians are white angels versus Islamic black angels. They are the opposite of each other. Eventually, one will prevail. Since Islam has no conscience relative to killing non believers they will have an advantage. Christianity must rely of the positive side of human nature, the good side if you will, and convert people who are loving, caring, compassionate to all, even Muslims. I just add that Muslims also claim to be loving, caring, and compassionate every time they are accused of being Radical Islamist Terrorists. What they fail to include is that they only have all these traits when they deal with fellow Muslims. Anyone who is not Muslim is an infidel, and must be eliminated by any means.
I cannot believe that the same God condones both practices when they are polar opposites. My God is loving, and caring and promotes the sanctity of life, not senseless killing. Therefore, Christians and Muslims cannot claim that they believe in the one true God. The Islamic god is an invention of the devil and it appeals to the basic dark instincts of men, like killing, sex, torture, mutilation, and keeping slaves.
Getting back to my original premise for this essay, I am offended by Muslims and all Islamists because they see me as the infidel, and as their enemy. I will not support them under any circumstances, and will resist all attempts to install sharia, prayers rooms, teaching in schools, and conversion to their satanic religion.
I am offended by fellow citizens who condone and preach Progressivism, political correctness, and control. I will resist their attempts to transform us into an all-controlling communist or Islamic state. To me they achieve the same end.
