Over at IMAO the other day they had a post concerning the Ground Zero mosque, lately known as the Ground Zero Victory Mosque or GZVM and Nancy Pelosi’s claim that anyone against said mosque “should be investigated”. I hope that my readers will not mind my reposting as the update is specifically tied to this post.
Welcome to my life Nanny. Come on down and investigate the pittance I and the sweet spouse are paid (compared to your salary, fringe benefits, retirement and golden parachute). People in this country by a wide margin feel they way the do about Islam and muslims because of what they say and do, not because of who they are. If they didn’t say things like “Israel should be wiped off the map or Kill the infidel or Death to America or America is the Great Satan”, some of us might feel differently. Those of us who are students of history however would probably feel exactly as we do today. Islam is not now nor has it ever been a religion of peace. It’s doctrine is violent and intolerant of everyone and anyone who does not ascribe it.
Look it up, I dare you. Some where there has to be objective writers who still have a semblance of integrity. While in the past other religions have made mistakes and tried to enforce their beliefs through the sword they have discarded these ideas and have come to understand that only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned will anyone be able to affect meaningful change in their own lives or the lives of others.
Islam will never rise to that level. One has only to look at how they treat their women and children to see that the men are animals who have no finer feelings. Lust and depravity fill their souls to the exclusion of anything lovely, fine or virtuous. Hence the 72 virgins – if that isn’t tied to the arm of the flesh I don’t know what is. What god would give another sentient being to be the slave of another, knowing that the slave owner was guaranteed to abuse, debase and destroy that which they have been given to slake their depraved desires. I would say that this was painting with too wide a brush but I have yet to hear any cleric or apologists come out against the things written in the Koran or Sharia law, so I would guess that muslims believe in these ideologies, which just proves my point. Not to mention the so called “honor” killings that have happened in the last several years. These ghouls wouldn’t know “honor” if it reached up and bit them on the …………….nose.
But I don’t hate them. My God insists that I Love my enemies, bless them that curse me, do good to them that hate me, and pray for them which despitefully use me, and persecute me…. I’m not there yet but I am not going around insisting they be deported or jailed or worse. So by “their fruits shall ye know them”.
Today a story from Foxnews.com contains the quote, “Is this what we are? Savages?” “So utterly bereft of a speck of humanity that a crowd of ordinary men are passive spectators to public murder?”, from a English daily newspaper. I hate to make this kind of leap but what is the predominant religion is Pakistan again? According to some estimates 97% of Pakistani’s are muslim. It is the “State” religion of the country. And they are surprised by this? Or are they surprised by this kind of violence against MEN. After all the usual victims of this kind of outrageous villainy are women and children and of course ungodly infidels. All of Pakistan is up in arms the article states but I’m reasonably sure that the group of people standing around watching this bestiality, including apparently members of the police force were not offended by it. Otherwise they would have done something or at least walked away. But no apparently they stayed to the end. After all the show isn’t over until the victim has breathed their last.
So here’s my question, if you as a citizen are so afraid of your fellow citizens that you can’t or won’t intervene when someone else is in mortal danger, do you live in a civilized society? If you don’t live in a civilized society why are we Americans being asked to send money, arms, and military to protect you from not only your neighbors, who have given themselves over depravity, anarchy and religious tyranny, but from you yourselves. Maybe you and your religion are not worth saving? Maybe you should be left to sink in to the cess poll of history along with other peoples who proved themselves incapable of self governance, discipline or control. Of course as I said in my post at IMAO, my God requires that I treat people as I’d like to be treated. I’m supposed to love them, even the ones who announce almost daily that their focus in life is to kill all that I hold dear. I’m not very good at that yet, as you may have intimated.
I think though I should get a gold star for not advocating turning the entire Middle East into a glass parking lot and finding a way to send off planet ( physically not as in killing ) all of those who practice religions that glorify violence and intolerance. Maybe on another planet they can live peacefully, or they’ll commit genocide. Either way they will not be our problem anymore.
It’s a win-win to me.
