To me from a Born Again Christian pro-Israel friend
"Moderate" Islam isn't what most Muslims Believe - It's what Liberals Believe that Muslims Believe - Freedom Outpost
My reponse to him.
Gee . . . how come the millions of non-jihadist, non-ISIS, non-Alqaeda, non-violent, simply going-about-the-activities-and-business of living their lives people who go to mosques and are termed Muslims . . . how come they are the overwhelming majority of Muslims??
Are we to assume that they're all hiding their deep desires to slice all non-"mosquers' " throats -- their murderous inborn pathology as if a kind of "original scimitar-wielding" psychosis?
How subtly, insidiously, the hate-retinue-milieu is conveyed within this article's diatribe purportedly proving all people of a vast and vastly distributed and vastly contextual religious orientation (" Muslim beliefs") are evil and killers. How sneaky the references specifically to Liberals, Obama, Universalists, lesbians and gays etc.
How damned unChristian the "Christian right's" wrongs of generalization, accusation, condemnation.
Really, would Jesus be on the same page of pronouncement as this article?
But . . . . . isn't there a little concern in all the mayhem of self-sancitification and proclamation and perhaps some level of paranoia . . . . shouldn't there be a little concentration on WHAT DOES ANYONE SUGGEST THAT MIGHT BE A SOLUTION TO THE PERCEIVED PROBLEM ???
It truly seems that savoring the threat as a means to distribute discrimination, homo- and liberal-phobia, and Obamaphrenia . . is far preferable to the far right than spending any time or mentality on resolving anything. It's much more self-satisfying to shout and confront.
Isn't it obvious that the whole of procedure and paradigm of even the last few years is endangering the very people whose favor is the supposed focus of the most fervent?
And to be Christian enough, should anyone be able to grasp that because of a terrorist schism, to essentially slaughter a couple thousand primarily civilians . . . might not defeat a Muslim threat? Rather, just destroy a city and radicalize those thousands of "mosquers" who might wash and worship in strange ways and disparage Western licenciousness and liquor etc. -- but really just want to live their lives and conduct their business as people (not partisans, not parishioners).
Oh but there's our "Muslemic movement", as in the past. "Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war -- with the cross of Jesus going on before . . . . forward into battle see His banners go . . . . ".
