In most Muslim countries, Christianity can only be practiced behind closed doors, if at all. Muslim countries allow no religious symbols from other religions, so no Bibles, no crucifixes, no pictures of Jesus, and no Virgin Marys on the dashboard of your hoop-t!
And if you are caught practicing “other religions” then you might be treated like Prabhu Issac, where in 2001 Saudi police raided his homes after hearing that he may be practicing Christianity! The horror!
“The Muttawa [Saudi police] confiscated Prabhu’s computer, photo albums, Bibles, songbooks, and all his audio cassettes and videotapes. Fellow Christians are concerned that the personal files on Prabhu’s computer may have contained the names and addresses of other Christians who often would meet together in each others’ homes to sing and study the Bible. In Saudi Arabia, it is illegal for Christians to gather together to practice their faith…The Muttawa are constantly on the lookout for foreigners who are openly practicing their faith, including gathering together for religious purposes other than observing Islam.”
Imagine if in America there was a crackdown on people practicing Islam and police raided Muslim homes in America. But to hear Barack Obama speak on religion, America is the intolerant nation.
The fact that America actually respects the 3000 people killed on Sept 11 by Muslim radicals, and prefer that Muslims add their one more mosque to the community elsewhere is considered intolerant.
The good news is that Obama later retracted that statement, essentially saying that he was only speaking about Muslims’ legal right to put the mosque at Ground Zero, and he wasn’t necessarily saying that he was for or against the mosque. That’s confusing, so let me put it this way: Obama voted “present.”
It may surprise most Americans that Christianity can be practiced in some Muslim countries. In fact, they are so tolerant, in Qatar there is actually ONE Christian church. But wait, there could be TWO…if you count ALL of Arabia, as there have been negotiations between the Pope and the king of Saudi Arabia to allow a Catholic church to be built in “the kingdom.”
Based on the Muslims’ rules for Christianity, I suspect that church will have an outward appearance more of a US Government “black ops” buildings, with not a clue that the building is a Christian church!
Outside of catering to the infidels who are absolutely necessary to service them, Muslims consider the practice of other religions punishable by death. Could it be that allowing these churches to be built is just a way for the Muslims to know where all the Christians are, when the time comes for jihad?
In both Obama’s comments and his clarification statement, Obama failed to mention all the calls to worship for Muslims heard throughout the communities of New York, and other cities, so much so that some American cities more resemble [insert American-hating, Christian-executing Muslim country here], than they do their former American cities.
In Manhattan alone, there are approximately 200 mosques and growing! In Detroit, it’s over 300 and counting. But hey, Christians do have ONE Christian church in all of Arabia, with the possibility of ONE more!
Islam is practiced openly in America, and we allow their Koran and other religious artifacts without prejudice. But in Muslim countries, Christianity must be practiced in private, or face penalty of death! Yet it is America who needs to show religious tolerance, according to Barack Obama.
America is going to find itself moving from the cry of racism to the cry of religious tolerance (with a racism chaser) as the major topic of discussion. And we are going to lose this battle, because the Muslims know how to use our laws, the media, and Liberalism against us.
Muslims are students of Liberalism, sitting at the head of the class and going for extra credit. So as they build thousands of mosques, cultural centers, and enclaves in America, they give us a token gesture of ONE church, or just enough to show their “tolerance.” Their laws forbid the spread of other religions, yet we usher in their radicalism at every turn.
History proves that Muslims build shrines as monuments of their conquests. Let us not forget that the “religion of peace” was successful in their destruction of Capitalism represented by the Twin Towers, and the lives of 3000 infidels, as they see it!
Life as we knew it in America changed forever on 9/11. Some will even argue that it is Muslims who gave America “change we can’t believe in.”
That’s my rant!
