At present the Conservative Party is in power. The Labour party is running to unseat the conservatives. The most popular and well known labour party leader was Tony Blair. His position toward Islam has been favorable. He says that he often reads from the Qur’an and his sister-in-law has converted to Islam.
The Labour Party falls on the left side of the political spectrum. It is very socialistic in their agenda. This party is vowing to ban Islamophobia from the country. Islamophobia is one of those dirty words invented to shame anyone who says anything negative against Islam. We see the left doing this all of the time. For example, if you are against homosexuality you are called a “homophobe.”
A phobia is an unreasonable fear of something. It is considered a mental disease. In other words you have a mental illness if you are against this “peaceful religion.”
On the other side, the conservative is taking the opposite stand. The British Home Secretary, Teresa May, has come out with a strong stand against radical Islam in their country.
“There is increasing evidence that a small but significant number of people living in Britain — almost all of whom are British citizens — reject our values. … It’s clear from these examples that extremism can take many forms. … They utterly reject British and Western values, including democracy, the rule of law, and equality between citizens, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. They believe that it’s impossible to be a good Muslim and a good British citizen. And they dismiss anybody who disagrees with them — including other Muslims — as ‘kafirs,’ or non-believers.”
“Intolerance, hatred and bigotry become normalized. Trust is replaced by fear, reciprocity by envy, and solidarity by division. … [I]f anybody else discriminated against women, denounced people on the basis of their religious beliefs, rejected the democratic process, attacked people on the basis of their sexuality, or gave a nod and a wink in favor of violence and terrorism, we wouldn’t hesitate to challenge them or — if the law was broken — call for their prosecution and punishment.”
Can we legally ban Islam from America? Our First Amendment ensures religious liberty in our country.
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.
This tells us that the government cannot prohibit the free exercise of religion, nor can it establish a state religion. This makes it difficult to deal with the ideology of Islam.
There are satanic cults who worship the Devil as god and practice blood sacrifices. For the most part they do this in secret and get their blood sacrifices from animals. If they should say that their holy book says they are to make human sacrifices, would we allow them to do this under the First Amendment? Absolutely not! This practice would break other laws in our country. It would be considered murder. This would make part of this religion illegal.
If we can say this about Satan worshippers, there would be grounds to make part5s of any religion that breaks long held laws of our nation.
The founding fathers did not expect for the freedom of religion to be absolute. Patrick Henry, the statesman from Virginia, coined the phrase “the color of religion.” He produced a proposal for Articles 15 and 16 for the Virginia Bill of Rights. The proposal reads:
…..That religion, or the duty we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, and not by force or violence; and, therefore, that all men should enjoy the fullest toleration in the exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience, unpunished and unrestrained by the magistrates, unless, under the color of religion, any man disturb the peace, the happiness, or the safety of society; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity toward each other.”
The founding Fathers knew that there were “religions” that are harmful to the freedoms we enjoy in America. They knew that some would use religion to walk on the rights of others. At the time of the writing of the Bill of Rights we were at war with Islam.
Sadly this did not get into the US Constitution. The reason it didn’t was because there are other laws to protect persons and property so this would have been redundant. Perhaps we should revisit the issue and add this clarity to the amendment.
There is another way to deal is this issue. Muhammad was not just building a religion, he was building an empire. Shariah law is not only religious law, it is also a legal system.
Isn’t it interesting that it is always the left that protects Islam? The same thing is happening here in America.
A teacher in Georgia is forced to retire because she said, in her classroom, that President Obama is not a Christian. This led to discussions in her class concerning religion. She touched the “anointed one” and that is a real no-no in our school systems.
We have documented the fact that Obama is not a Christian. Ed Kline did a 3 hour interview with Jeremiah Wright and it is all on tape. Two things were revealed in this interview. The first was that Jeremiah Wright was paid of to be quite and go away. The second was the discussion of the conversion of Obama to Christianity. Ed Kline asked, did you convert him from being a Muslim to being a Christian?” Here is the response:
“Well, I don’t know if I could go that far, but I can tell you that I made it comfortable for him to accept Christianity without having to renounce his Islamic background.”
At best Obama is following Chrislam and at worst we have him lying to us about his faith. Remember that Islam says it is not wrong to lie to advance the cause of Islam.
When we compare the above with the fact that California is allowing teachers to announce their homosexuality to their classroom and to talk about this lifestyle to their students.
A California public school district is allowing homosexual school employees to “come out” in front of children in school without obtaining parents’ permission. A unanimous resolution allows teachers at the Hayward Unified School District to talk openly about homosexuality or to discuss their homosexual lifestyles with students during class. The district’s school board says such action is required under the California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000.
It is OK to talk about such a controversial and divisive subject as homosexuality, but not about Christianity. We sure live in interesting days.
