Listen to today’s broadcast:
1. Security Alert — 22 Embassies closed and will remain closed until further notice.
There is, according to the news this weekend, a credible security Threat by Al-Quail. I thought that, according to President Obama, we had more or less destroyed the Al-Quaida. Of course since then we had Benghazi which will not go away. This administration is trying to hide the proof that Al-Quaida is still out there and growing. President Obama‘s foreign policy is failing.
2. Major Hasan’s trial starts Tuesday It has been four years since the event. (What ever happened to the right to a speedy trial.?) Mass shooting a Ft. Hood is called an incident ofwork place violence instead of an act of terrorism by this administration. Hasan admitted he did this as a Muslim because these people were going to Afghanistan to fight Muslims. Of course the purpose for calling this “work place violence” is to keep President Obama’s record clean concerning terrorist attacks on American soil.
WHY DON’T YOU OUTLAW ISLAM IN AMERICA?
Some are asking, “Why are we missing around with bills like American Laws for American Courts”? To stop Shariah in America, they say, we should outlaw Islam in America.
Some have sent me the following documents:
1. Amendment to Outlaw Islam
2. Legal Guidelines for criminalizing Islam in America
Here are two quotes from one of them:
“It is necessary to outlaw the practice of Islam in the United States of America because the teachings of this religion are antithetical to many vital provisions of the US Constitution and represents as existential threat to the security of American citizens. Furthermore, Shariah law, which is intrinsic to all orthodox forms of Islam, which is based directly on the Qur’an, seeks, as a stated goal of the religion, to replace civil law with a system based on inhumane values on the presumption that these values are superior to anything in the Constitution or in the
religions of the world, including the religious faiths of the vast majority of Americans, All of this is completely unacceptable.”
“As representatives of Islam around the world have declared war, and committed acts of war, against the United States and its democratic allies around the world, Islam is hereby declared an enemy of the United States and its practice within the United States is now prohibited.”
First we must realize that these documents are not accurate in their depiction of Islam. Orthodox forms of Islam are not based directly on the Qur’an. They are also based upon the Sunnah. The Sunnah are the way of life prescribed as normative for Muslims on the basis of the teachings and practices of Islamic prophet Muhammad and interpretations of the Qur’an.
We are a nation of laws and we have a Constitution which is the basis for those laws. The first amendment guarantees freedom of religion for all. We could amend the Constitution to outlaw Islam, but if we did what would stop us, as a nation, from outlawing any other religion.. What if some think Mormonism or Catholicism should go. And then those pesky Baptist etc.
I believe that removing the protection that was given to all faiths by the first amendment is dangerous. It would leave all religions vulnerable to governmental control and to being outlawed if the majority of Americans so desire. Yours or mine could be next, be it Catholic, Lutheran, atheist, or any other religion.
Islam is more than just a religion. In addition it is a political, legal, and military system. The religious part of their religion is not dangerous to our way of life. Who they worship and how they worship will not harm us (although it will send them to hell). The good deeds like alms giving will not hurt us. It is the Shariah Law that makes Islam poisonous to our land, not the religious elements of prayer, alms, feasts, and pilgrimages etc.
We must separate the Shariah part from the religion and fight that and ban it. If we do this we don’t have to amend the Constitution in a manner that puts all religions in danger. The first amendment to our Constitution guarantees the right to peacefully disagree with one another. Read it for yourself.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Every American should desire to keep this amendment in tact. To threaten it should alarm both liberals and conservatives. It will certainly alarm the conservatives, and we need them to fight this battle against Islam.
Trying to ban Islam is flawed because it endangers all of our freedoms. Lets use the strength of American Law to fight the weakness of Islamic Law.
