It seems the U.S. Government agrees with Turkey (that heads the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a body of 57 nations) that has demanded a resolution prohibiting any criticism of Islam. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan belched that the “West hasn’t recognized Islamophobia as a crime against humanity.” First of all there is no such word as “Islamophobia.” It was cobbled together by fanatics to suggest that any criticism of Islam constitutes fear and hatred of the “peaceful” religion of Islam. Erdogan and Muslim stooges demand that the U.N. should “Ban criticism of Muslims worldwide.” Our cowardly, complicit, and cooperating leaders are now trying to implement that nefarious policy.
Wonder what Muslim and U.S. leaders fear from criticism? They don’t want anyone demanding an explanation for the distortion, destruction, and death that has pulsated through Islam since its beginning. Muslims are reluctant to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. They would have to admit that their “holy” book is filled with mistakes, mishmash, and madness. They would be challenged to treat women in a respectful, reasonable, even reverential way. But they are unwilling to change their doctrine and practices, so they demand that no one challenge them. Most Muslim leaders are crude, craven, and contemptuous bullies.
Now enters the U.S. Government: U.S. attorney Bill Killian (for the Eastern District of Tennessee) is not only a jerk but a dangerous jerk. On June 4, Bill held a “Let’s all be kind and gracious to peace-loving Muslims” in Manchester, Tennessee and had a packed house for his little speech. His speech fell flat and was booed by a few. Evidently Bill has never read or rejects the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He has vowed to use federal civil rights laws to gag sane people who are critical of Islam. However, that won’t happen until pigs learn to fly, but since pigs offend Muslims make that “until camels (the two-humped variety) learn to fly.”
Billy says that “some [Internet] inflammatory material on Islam might run afoul of federal civil rights laws.” What he has missed is that he is running afoul of my civil and religious rights. I have a commission from God to tell the truth, to contend for the faith, to reprove and rebuke error. Bill is in error up to his Adam’s apple.
He said, “We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected.” Isn’t it strange that federal officials are so quick to protect, preserve, and promote the rights of a radical 7th century pagan religion at the expense of the religious beliefs of the people who founded this great nation? Where were these officials when I was offended when an “artist” displayed a cross in urine? Oh, that’s right, I’m not a Muslim.
Bill also said that Muslims are no different from other people and other religions have been terrorists and “Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols (of Oklahoma City bombing infamy) were both Christians.” Is Bill being dishonest, disingenuous, or simply dumb? Evidently Bill is so uninformed that he, like most of the media, thinks any American who is not a Jew or Muslim is a Christian. Christians are people who have repented and received Christ as Savior. They are not simply church members.
It is astounding that any American would give any consideration to the demand by the Muslim world that the U.S. should annul the First Amendment to our Constitution to forbid any criticism (speaking truth) about Islam! As I carefully parse my words I want to make it clear that any U.S. official who even considers such a rape of our foundational document is a traitor. I am not speaking symbolically or hyperbolically but literally. Such a person is a traitor making Tokyo Rose look like a misguided school girl and Benedict Arnold look like a mischievous Boy Scout.
It is incredible that U.S. politicians take Muslim leaders seriously. U.S officials smile, talk, and shake hands with Muslim terrorists and treat them like gracious gentlemen with whom they have some minor disagreements. The Obama administration has even hired a special Homeland Security adviser, Mohamed Elibiary, who publicly supports an Islamist extremist who condemns U.S. prosecution of terrorists! You pay his salary and provide his perks. U.S. officials who don’t recognize their enemies are fools on the slippery slope to disaster. The problem is that they are taking all of us with them.
The Federal Government and its lackeys must realize that this is still America where everyone has the same rights (and responsibilities, but then I must not go there) and I will exercise those rights as I have all my ministry. Whatever Bill tells the Muslims, they don’t have any more rights than Methodists. Muslims are not special even if Obama, Holder, and Company treat them as Very Special People.
I will continue to point out that Modernist ministers in mainline churches are unbelievers taking undeserved salary and benefits and are wolves in sheep skins; that Roman Catholics are decent people who are wrong about apostolic succession, popery, worship of Mary, Purgatory, the confessional booth, beads, incense and candles; that Mormons are hardworking and patriotic people who are cultic in their belief that everyone can become gods, that Jesus and Satan are brothers, and that God was once a mortal man; that Jews are committed, intelligent people who haven’t been convinced that their Messiah came about 2000 years ago; and that Jehovah’s Witnesses are hard-working, sincere but cultic Americans.
In America, there is no guarantee that one will not be offended or embarrassed. Catholics don’t have to like Jews, Jews don’t have to like Baptists, and God knows some Baptists don’t like any religions whose name doesn’t start with B. Likewise, Islam will survive those of us who tell the truth about Muslim facts: Mohammed was a thief, rapist, and child molester; the Koran is filled with mistakes that are silly and embarrassing and every Muslim on earth is required to make the nation where he or she lives into an Islamic sharia state. Any non-Muslim politician who does not know that should run, not walk, to hand in his or her resignation. Then get a real job where they can’t do irreparable harm to future generations of Americans.
As to criticizing, correcting, and condemning Islam, I will do so at any opportunity whatever law may be passed. If I end up in jail, that is my problem. If I present facts that offend Muslims, that is their problem. They can always move back to the Middle East where there is plenty of living space on the Arabian Desert (900,000 square miles) where the days are flaming hot and the nights are freezing cold.
Not as nice as Southern California (or even Dearborn, Michigan) but there are no fruits, flakes, or nuts there. Well, a few nuts.

The God Haters
Angry Atheists, Shallow Scholars, Silly Scientists, Pagan Preachers & Embattled Evolutionists Declare War Against Christians
by Don Boys, Ph.D.
Angry Atheists, Shallow Scholars, Silly Scientists, Pagan Preachers, and Embattled Evolutionists are, of necessity, attacking the Bible for if they can denounce, deny, distort, and denigrate it, they will win more converts to atheism. They have been waging this war for a few years and most of us have ignored their books, television interviews, and university debates because they have just been more of the typical dog and pony shows that the most fanatical God haters have created for centuries. They want a fight, and while I consider atheists to be unimpressive fools, I’m willing to take them on. No quarter asked or given.
