(And why non-Christians should care)

By Robert Farrow

Well, another day has passed and another incident of violence and threats by the Religion of Peace has occurred. In what would almost be funny if people were not dying, muslims have been inflamed to violence against Christians because a Christian quoted a text where someone has accused them of being violent. At around the same time a number of celebrities attacked Christianity on national TV. No one really noticed because it is almost routine to attack Christians on our TV and universities and campuses.

Are you a Christian and feel like you are under attack or under siege? Well, you are, and on both sides. And these conflicts are linked. However, I am getting ahead of myself, so let me start off with one attack at a time and link them up at the end….. let us start off with those happy members of the Religion of peace.

How many suicide bombers does the pope have?

As has been widely reported, Pope Benedict XVI has stirred up a bit of a kerfuffle with a speech offering some historical criticisms of Islam,

Across the Islamic world Friday, Benedict’s remarks on Islam and jihad in a speech in Germany unleashed a torrent of rage that many fear could burst into violent protests like those that followed publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

By citing an obscure Medieval text that characterizes some of the teachings of Islam’s founder as “evil and inhuman,” Benedict inflamed Muslim passions and aggravated fears of a new outbreak of anti-Western protests

[…]Salih Kapusuz, deputy leader of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamic-rooted party, said Benedict’s remarks were either “the result of pitiful ignorance” about Islam and its prophet or, worse, a deliberate distortion

[…]”Benedict, the author of such unfortunate and insolent remarks, is going down in history for his words,” Kapusuz added. “He is going down in history in the same category as leaders such as Hitler and Mussolini.”

the link is here.

Another AP dispatch quotes a spokeswoman for the Pakistani Foreign Ministry, Tasnim Aslam: “Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence.” Aslam’s view of Islam can be described, charitably, as passive-aggressive.

If Kapusuz and Aslam are so concerned about Islam’s reputation, why don’t they denounce those of their coreligionists who do evil and inhuman things in the name of their faith? Most likely because they are afraid of them. In the eyes of a jihadi, a moderate Muslim is something worse than an infidel: an apostate.To retaliate for Pope’s statements – two Churches in the West Bank have been bombed by the ROP.

And now we have a new threat from the religion of peace

An Iraqi militant group led by al Qaeda vowed a war against the “worshippers of the cross” in response to a recent speech by Pope Benedict on Islam that sparked anger across the Muslim world.
“We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya,” said an Internet statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council, an umbrella group led by Iraq’s branch of al Qaeda.

“We shall break the cross and spill the wine. … God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome. … God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen,” said the statement

Now an innocent Nun, Sister Leonella, has been killed in Somolia by Muslims out to destroy anything that resembles freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and women’s rights. But who do the stupid liberals attack,

Tom Hanks decided to join the slime of Hollywood Babylon by making fun of Christianity, the Pope, and Jesus on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. All that was missing was a beheading.

On ABC’s The View, Rosie O’Donnell interrupted co-host Elisabeth Hallelbeck’s assertion that militant Islam threatens free people around the world: “Just a minute… Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.”

Idiot. Most muslim countries would stone a lesbian such as herself. I guess honor killing, and female genital mutilations and a denial of all basic rights to women do not threaten her as much as Bush because she is a big freakin idiot. Really, Pakistan requires three witnesses for a rape conviction. Want to rape til your hearts content? Become a Muslim and move to Pakistan. Where’s CAIR’s outrage here?

Hell, one of the muslim countries even banned dogs.


Now why would Rosie worry about Christians in the face of daily attacks against almost the rest of the world by the religion of peace? Well, it is hard not to think so when liberals in the media have jumped on the anti-Christian wagon.

A good example of this is the fixation of the media on the Catholic Priest molestation scandal.

(As a Catholic, I am infuriated at the Church for attempting to hide the scandal) But I am even more angry at the liberals, media, and government for ignoring an even greater scandal. Ann Coulter analyzed data from the American Association of University Women’s Educational Foundation, and found that between 1991 to 2000, roughly 290,9000 students were subjected to sexual abuse by teachers. Comparing that to the 10,667 abuses by priests between 1950 and 2002, and inflating the numbers for unreported cases we then have teachers abusing over 30 times the number of kids as priests per year. Even taking account the larger number of teachers and errors in the numbers, we still have a scandal being covered up by the media. Funny how this statistic gets ignored by the media…..

Why??? Most liberals hate Christians and love the educational system. Result:

More bias: more anti-Catholicism. And boy does our educational system return the liberal love and Christian hate.

UVa. cartoonist pulls work off Web

RICHMOND — A University of Virginia student newspaper yesterday removed from its Web site cartoons featuring Jesus Christ that prompted a barrage of e-mails to the paper and school from people who thought the comics were blasphemous.

The Charlottesville university and the Cavalier Daily received about 2,500 messages about the comics, many of them form-letter e-mails that were overwhelmingly from people outside the school community.

The Jesus cartoons ran in the Cavalier Daily’s Aug. 23-24 editions and featured “Christ on a Cartesian Coordinate Plane,” with the figure of Jesus crucified on X and Y axes of a mathematical graph.

Another, “A Nativity Ob-scene,” showed Joseph and the Virgin Mary talking about Mary’s rash, with her saying, “I swear, it was immaculately transmitted!”

The controversy began last week when the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights demanded an apology from the Cavalier Daily.

The paper declined, saying that the comics didn’t violate any newspaper policy.

from the Washington Times.

This should not be a surprise, as there have been many similar cartoons and other incidents like students having their microphone turned off if they mentioned Jesus during a speech. You cannot tell me the educational system is not anti-Christian when one can mention muslims, gays, and Kawanza in our schools, but not Jesus or God. This is a calculated and pre-mediated attack on Christianity. And this is only one small example in a much larger effort, as I reported earlier.

Gay-bias ban in schools OK’d

The state Assembly approved legislation Monday designed to bar discrimination in public schools against gay, bisexual and transgender people, retreating from an earlier proposal that would have required schools to teach students about the contributions of prominent gay people.

Current law prohibits instruction, school activities and textbooks that reflect poorly on people on the basis of their race, sex, national origin and other characteristics. The bill, which passed on a partisan 46-31 vote, would add sexual orientation to that list

Some Republican lawmakers called the legislation an effort to promote homosexuality in schools. Public schools “are turning into institutions of social experimentation and it is dangerous for our young people,” said Dennis Mountjoy, R-Monrovia. “We’ll no longer have prom kings and queens. Jack and Jill can no longer walk up the hill.”

So why is censorship only bad when conservatives do it???? Does no one see this as a threat to free speech ???? (And by the way, there is no Separation of Church and State in the Constitution. Go read it!) How can one say that the radical gay rights movements and other liberal groups are not hostile to Christian values. ……for if the law was interpreted strictly, one could theoretically ban the Bible……

And these forces are winning….even in my home state of MD.

Georgetown Kicks out Outside Ministries.

Imagine if they banned a gay group, it would be all over the MSM, not just the conservative papers……

This is not the only example, don’t forget the JOHNS HOPKINS story….

a further reminder of liberal dedication to free speech

so it appears someone has noticed the Johs Hopkins censorship……..

Student Newspaper Suffers Viewpoint Discrimination at Johns Hopkins University

BALTIMORE, June 12, 2006–Johns Hopkins University (JHU) ended this school year by engaging in shameful viewpoint discrimination and denying its students freedom of the press. First, JHU turned a blind eye to the theft of a conservative student newspaper, The Carrollton Record (TCR), then stifled its right to distribute in dorms while allowing other papers to continue distributing there. TCR staff members contacted the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) soon after these administrative abuses began.

“Freedom of the press and the freedom to distribute literature are vital liberties that should not be denied to JHU students,” said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. “Theft and confiscation of a newspaper threaten the very marketplace of ideas upon which a university depends and should be condemned, not accepted.”

TCR’s May issue contained an article objecting to a recent campus appearance by pornographic film director Chi Chi LaRue. The cover photo pictured LaRue along with members of JHU’s Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance (DSAGA) student group, which hosted the event. The pictured DSAGA members were apparently displeased to see their pictures on the newspaper’s front page, and some have filed harassment charges against TCR staffers.

Didn’t liberals use to think censorship was bad? Again, this is not the only paper to be banned. And just to remind you of the attacks on Coulter’s book and the anti-Bible hate speech legislation in Canada. And who gave us political correctness, the modern version of newspeak?

The Bible as Hate Speech

Canada’s governor general, the representative of Queen Elizabeth II, signed into law yesterday a controversial measure opposed by religious believers and free-speech advocates who say it will criminalize public expression against homosexual behavior.

The bill, passed 59-11 by the Senate on Wednesday, adds sexual orientation as a protected category in Canada’s genocide and hate-crimes legislation, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
The House of Commons passed the bill in September, 141-110.

As WorldNetDaily reported, opponents have feared if it becomes law, the Bible will be deemed “hate literature” under the criminal code in certain instances, as evidenced by the case of a Saskatchewan man fined by a provincial human-rights tribunal for taking out a newspaper ad with Scripture references to verses about homosexuality.

The bill’s sponsor, openly homosexual MP Svend Robinson, has insisted it protects religious expression, but opponents, such as the Canada Family Action Coalition, note recent court cases in which judges have favored homosexual rights when they clash with the rights of religious believers.

Some members of Parliament have called it a “dangerous” law that muzzles free speech, including Liberal Party member John McKay, who dubbed it a “chill bill.”

“Anybody who has views on homosexuality that differ from Svend Robinson’s will be exposed rather dramatically to the joys of the Criminal Code,” McKay said last fall.

Robinson, who recently in a tearful apology to supporters admitted stealing a $50,000 ring, has said fears that freedom of speech and religion will suffer are “a mask for homophobia for people who don’t want to be honest about the real reason why they don’t want to include sexual orientation in the law.”

So he basically admits that radical homosexual activists and liberals are not only anti-Christian, but against freedom of speech.

All these examples are meant to show a pattern. So, yes, fellow Christians, you are under siege. Perhaps it is a hot war on the Muslim side and a cold war on the liberal Democrat side, but nevertheless, you are in a war for the survival of your values and the survival of your religion as a meaningful force in society. And yes I will add the word Democrat to the liberal tag. Who does Tom Hanks and Rosie vote for? Did most ACLU members vote Republican or Democrat? Do more muslims in America vote Republican or Democrat? Who do you think Bin Laden wants in power? Try as they might to pretend they are not, today’s modern Liberal Democrat party is as hostile to traditional Christianity as the Muslims. And many recognize this, which is why over 2/3rds of those who attend Church regularly vote red. The amusing thing is that the Democrats have as much chance of defeating the Muslims and the French have of defeating the Nazi’s, and the liberals have the most to loose if the radical Muslims win. Not only will the modern Democratic party not fight to save their own country, they won’t even fight to save their own values. This is the weakness of secularism. The West has been invaded by the Muslims twice, and twice we have turned them back. But even though the nations of Europe fought each other regularly then, they were united under the sign of the cross. But thanks to liberal socialistic policies, this is no longer the case. And because of it, we are weakened as a people. So liberals might have pulled their own house down as they try to pull ours. However, that gives me little comfort.

So let me say to you, if you are Christian and Democrat, you are betting on the wrong horse. If the people attacking your religion and your values happen to vote the same way you are, perhaps it is time you rethink your allies and your party. (And don’t buy the current Democratic criticism on homeland security. Just because they are right on one issue doesn’t excuse the fact they have been wrong on the 99 others) And again, I ask the liberals, name me one thing the Democrats have done to fight radical muslims. Had Clinton did his job as Commander-in-Chief and actually respond to the USS Cole attack and other attacks, 9-11 might not have happened, but he was too busy messing with interns. And thinking Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror is even stupider, as Bin Laden himself admitted Iraq is the center of the struggle against the west. So I ask: How does retreat and appeasement make us safer?

It doesn’t

The Muslims and liberals are attacking Christians for very different reasons, but in the end the results will be the same. Liberal Secularism is doomed. They will either defeat the Christians Conservatives and fall to the radical Muslims, or be defeated by the Christian Conservatives. This is why it is so important that Christians around the country take notice of the struggle and stand up for their values and their religion.

Take note: For if we fail, others will fail with us.

Christians, be on notice, your religion and values are under attack, and the survival of the West may be on the line with it.
