    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Slaughter Of Christians Ignored

Pamela Geller

Quoting columnist Pamela Geller:

“While we are constantly being schooled in how insensitive we are to Muslims and how we should be bowing to the idea of a Ground Zero mega-mosque, or are being admonished for not embracing the Sharia, the state of wartime siege continues unabated. The Muslim world is under no such mandate to reach out or reciprocate. They only have to demand, and the West apologizes. … We live in a constant state of low-grade war. And with each new Muslim attack, we lose a right. We lose a freedom. We have to adhere to some new restriction or loss of privacy. … The general silence from the mainstream media and our governing officials on last weekend’s wholesale slaughter of Christians praying in a Church is indicative of how decayed, empty, and morally inverted our leaders and media have become. The slaughter of the churchgoers in Baghdad was a crime against humanity. And there are thousands of stories of Islamic slaughter, but the lambs remain silent. Have we become so inured to Islamic jihad that human life is cheap to us as well?”

Oklahoma Law Vs. Sharia Law

Opposition To Sharia Law

A Clinton-appointed U.S. District Judge (Vicki Miles-LaGrange) declares 70 percent of Oklahoma voters are wrong.  The state voted to adopt a constitutional amendment to prevent judges from considering international or Sharia law in their court decisions.

Muneer Awad, who is the head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for Oklahoma, filed suit to block the adoption of the state constitutional amendment. He protests that the amendment “stigmatizes his religion.” Justice Miles-LaGrange seems to agree.

Awad claims that his last will and testament, which is based on Islamic law, would be made invalid by the Oklahoma amendment. Perhaps most Oklahomans are more interested in preventing “honor killings” and the stonings of women accused of adultery.

Contradictory laws which apply to one group of people but not to another create a society in chaos. Living in America means choosing to abide by American laws. The citizens of Oklahoma have every right to amend their state constitution to secure a consistent standard of justice.

Islam And The Constitution

Many people, such as Dutch MP Geert Wilders, have come to believe that Islam represents a totalitarian political system more than a religious movement. Islam is, in other words, a political philosophy with religious attributes more than it is a religion with political attributes. This distinction is very important because it changes the status of Islam in relation to the free exercise of religion clause found in the First Amendment.

A look at the history of our country also clearly demonstrates that the First Amendment has never been interpreted by the courts to mean that people can do whatever they want in the name of their religious beliefs. One example of this can be illustrated by the outlawing of Mormon polygamy in the 19th century. Therefore, in the United States, laws may be enforced to prevent Islamic practices and customs such as underage marriages, honor killings, whippings, and the implementation of Sharia Law.

All religions are not the same – as is often advocated by politically correct supporters of multiculturalism. There is a vast moral difference between the religion that seeks to dominate the world by the force of violence and the religion that wins its disciples by non-violent, voluntary association. Islam fails the litmus test that would qualify it for protection under the First Amendment because Islam would impose a political system that would eliminate free speech and freedom of religion. Islam seeks to establish itself as the “religion of the state”.

The premise advocated by many US politicians that Islam is a “religion of peace” and brotherhood is patently false. The sooner we rid ourselves of this delusion – the better. We must stop the Islamization of the US before it is too late.

Tancredo Introduces Bill To Block Islamic Sharia Law In The US

Sharia Law & Punishment

Sharia Law & Punishment

The outrageous verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts, which are now legally binding in civil cases in the Great Britain, have raised the concerns of some US lawmakers. Representative Tom Tancredo is introducing legislation designed to protect the United States from a similar fate. “This is a case where truth is truly stranger than fiction,” said Tancredo. “Today the British people are learning a hard lesson about the consequences of massive, unrestricted immigration.”

“When you have an immigration policy that allows for the importation of millions of radical Muslims, you are also importing their radical ideology – an ideology that is fundamentally hostile to the foundations of western democracy – such as gender equality, pluralism, and individual liberty,” said Tancredo. “The best way to safeguard America against the importation of the destructive effects of this poisonous ideology is to prevent its purveyors from coming here in the first place.”

Tancredo’s bill, dubbed the “Jihad Prevention Act,” would bar the entry of foreign nationals who advocate Sharia law. In addition, the legislation would make the advocacy of Sharia law by radical Muslims already in the United States a deportable offense.

“We need to send a clear message that the only law we recognize here in America is the U.S. Constitution and the laws passed by our democratically elected representatives,” concluded Tancredo. “If you aren’t comfortable with that concept, you aren’t welcome in the United States.”
