Further Thoughts on the Religion of Peace.

I tuned into Boortz' radio program this morning to see if he had anything to say about his pal Herman Cain and his comments on Muslims and Sharia. Instead, Boortz was on a rant about Terry Jones and his recent Qur'an burning.

I don't know........looks like Boortz wants to have it both ways. Boortz and Jones appear to have similar views on Islam; Boortz certainly isn't a fan of the the religion of peace. I'm not quite certain why he thinks Jones is such a jerk (a bit of jealousy on Boortz' side, possibly).

Liberals Progressives and fence sitters Moderates are in an uproar over Cain's statement that, should he become President, he would not appoint a Muslim to his administration. I've often wondered why some people ignore the dangers of Islam. One need only look to the words in the Qur'an to see that the idea that Islam is a religion of Peace is a cruel joke, to say the least. Apologists for Islam ignore news reports concerning the horrors of Sharia . The fact that the Iranian penal code specifies the manner of execution and types of stones that should be used in the stoning of married persons guilty of adultery rarely makes front page news.

"Article 104 states, with reference to the penalty for adultery, that the stones used should "not be large enough to kill the person by one or two strikes; nor should they be so small that they could not be defined as stones". This makes it clear that the purpose of stoning is to inflict pain in a process leading to slow death."

Many liberal Catholics mistakenly believe that they can ignore Catholic teaching and still be Catholic. They disagree with the Church's teaching on contraception and abortion.......pretty much convinced that a "thinking" person doesn't go along with that "extremist stuff". This probably goes a long way to explaining why these same folks ignore the dangers of Islam. They -the cafeteria Catholics- don't take all this seriously, so, they believe, "thinking" "moderate" Muslims don't take the Quran seriously either. Not being able to follow their own religion, the liberal, cafeteria Catholic can't imagine anyone taking Islam to heart.

Authentic Christians (Catholic and Protestants) have no problem understanding that Muslims will follow the tenets of their religion. When you take your own religion to heart, you have no difficulty understanding that there are others who will do the same regarding their religion.

Westerners who don't take seriously the threat of Sharia might do well to read this article from Assyrian International News Agency :14 Old Muslim Girl Raped, Charged With Adultery, and Lashed to Death which has this -

"Never mind that this 14-year old girl was raped. Under Islamic Law or Sharia rape is well-nigh impossible to prove, and the female victim typically is accused of 'fornication,' or 'adultery' and lashed, if not stoned. Despite a 'ban' by ostensibly overriding secular law, Sharia law and its attendant discriminatory abuses of women compounded by barbaric punishments of these victims, persists in Bengladesh".

Interesting point. Add that to the white liberal guilt & you may pretty well have their entire mindset in a nutshell.
