It is no longer enough to be liberal to be on NPR, or the ONLY black correspondent. Now, you must also censor what you say about Muslims. Soon there will be nothing left to report. With the rise of Islamic terrorism worldwide (virtually every violent conflict on earth has one or both Islamic protagonists), an awful lot of the real hard news out there is on the subject. We are going to need a new influx of heartwarming animal stories to fill the newscasts.
My favorite blogger makes a good point that Islam is not a race. There are Muslims in most countries and ethnic groups in the world. Stop the “bigot” defense. (Disclaimer: she happens to be my daughter. Please visit her blog about Team Juan here.)
There needs to be serious analysis of the real threat posed by the political and religious ideology of world conquest of Islam. Also, please stop with the “millions of moderates” defense. Since there are 1.5 billion adherents to Islam, consider that if only one per cent were suicide bombers it would be 15 million radicals we should watch out for. This is a plea for sanity. There is a real threat out there. What per cent of Germans were Nazis? Most Germans were not. The problem is when the crazies take over and impose their will on the moderates. That is exactly what is happening to moderate Muslims.
As a Christian, I believe that Jesus died for the whole world, including Muslims. Every person has the invitation to renounce their pagan past or unbelief and accept Jesus as the son of God. This is the religious difference between Islam and the Bible. The Koran explicitly and adamantly denies that its god is a father or that Jesus is the son of God. The Bible defines that position as the very essence of the spirit of anti-Christ.
Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22-23
