OK, let’s put some clarity to this discussion about religion. As regular readers may know, I oppose Islam because it is antithetical to the principles and ideals of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. Islam does not teach peace and tolerance for all people, it teaches peace toward other Muslims, but subjugation and – eventually – death to all who refuse to convert. If you follow what is taught in Islam’s holy books, then the only debate is over how and when global jihad can be declared – not whether it will be. Islamic prophecy says that, in the end, Muslims will either force every person on earth to submit to Islam – by the sword if necessary – or kill them by the sword. Furthermore, Islamic prophecy says that Jesus will return to actually kill those who refuse to submit to Islam. Without going in to too much detail, Islamic prophecy is almost a mirror image of Bible prophecy – just from the other side. The Islamic messiah is the Biblical anti-Christ.
Now, here is the thing you need to keep in mind: this is not me saying this; it is the Islamic holy books. This is a simple, objective fact – otherwise known as reality. All you have to do is read the Qur’an and the Hadith. Do not just take for granted what others tell you these books say – especially Muslims (or even me). Read them for yourself. You will find I am telling you the truth.
Now, let’s address some other politically correct non-sense that is too often hurled at those who try to explain these truths.
First, it does not make me a racist because Islam is not a race. There are Muslims from all races, and that is sufficient to destroy this sort of attack. Those who want to make a connection between race and religion here should be dismissed as nothing more than race baiters (Yes, dismissed out of hand. They are part of the problem, not part of the solution).
Second, it does not make me a bigot to oppose Islam. A casual, unthinking read of the definition of this word might lead one to think I am, but let’s look at this definition with a little thought:
Definition of BIGOT
: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
I am not attacking Muslims, I am opposing Islam. There is a H-U-G-E difference here, and it is big enough to absolve me of the charge of bigot. The problem is, too many Americans have been conditioned by the Left to see each other as nothing more than the group to which they are assigned (this is Progressivism/Alinsky/community organizing 101). I have said it many times and I will say it again: I do not ‘hate’ anyone, nor do I take issue with any individual based on their religion. However, I do take issue with the religion of Islam because Islam and the American ideal cannot coexist in anything approaching harmony. They are fire and water: at war with each other by their very nature (if you understood the theological differences between them, you’d understand I am speaking the truth).
The other accusation I get thrown at me by ignorant people is that I simply assume all Muslims are liars. Again, this is not true. What I have said and will keep saying is that – unless we are Muslims — you and I can never know if a Muslim is telling us the truth because their holy books tell them they can lie to non-believers. In some cases, they are commanded to do so. This extends to treaties with non-believers: they can make them, but I think it is for no more than 7 or 10 years and then they MUST break that treaty or be in violation of their faith.
This brings us to this silliness about not questioning the intentions of Muslims because “not all members of a religion follow its teachings.” This is true, but that means they are not devout followers of that faith. In the case of Christians, there are many who call themselves Christian who will not be saved on judgment day because they did not keep the commandments of Christ. These people chose to replace their judgment for God’s law and they will pay the price. The same applies to Islam. If a person ignores the commands of Islam, then they are like the Christian who does not obey Christ: a Muslim in name only. However, if a person follows the commands of Islam, then they will – sooner or later – seek to force Islam on you, me and all of America and, if we all live long enough, they will eventually force you to convert to Islam or die. It is this simple.
Now, let’s look at this notion that Utah defended Muslims by defending Romney and Mormons. Let’s assume that Romney is a devout Mormon and NEVER strays from his faith. Then this means he will not lie, steal, cheat, murder or covet. Now suppose we have a Muslim who is equally devout and never strays from the teachings of Islam. This means he CAN lie, steal, cheat, murder and covet – as long as he does all of this to a non-Muslim. How do we know this? IT IS IN THEIR HOLY BOOKS!
What I can’t understand is why this is all so hard for others to understand. Why would we rather tell ourselves that the truth is not the truth and that something we made up is really the way things are? Why must we insist on fooling ourselves into believing lies? Go ahead; tell yourself this makes me a racist, bigot hater. Why should you stop telling yourself lies now? You may decide to adhere to this politically correct experiment in group think, but I reject it because I would rather live in the real world and deal with reality as it is. And the reality here is that Islam wants to destroy the Western way of life and we are going to help them do it. Now, if you think that it makes you a better person to commit suicide, then have at it – but do it alone. You may think it makes you a better person but when you drag the nation along with you… Well, I have a news flash for you: when you intentionally end someone’s life against their will, that’s called murder – and being a murderer most certainly does NOT ‘make you a better person.’
