Last week, at the Olympics in Rio, an Egyptian judo competitor refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent. It’s right there on video for all to see. At a sporting event unrelated to religion, national borders or politics, one man steps back from the offered hand of another, backing away in refusal.
It’s a shocking thing to see — almost embarrassing. That’s one of the weird things about naked, unbridled hate: It elicits a cringe reaction. You feel the shame of someone so wrapped up in his own smallness, so unaware of how he is coming across.
Never forget that while Islam declares “God is great” (Allah akbar), Christians declare, quite differently, “God is love.” A recent incident with migrants on a Greek island illustrates these two very different mind-sets, and the contrasting ways that they go about winning new converts.
It takes some serious courage to do what Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of Arizona has been doing. The founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) has become a prominent media figure, speaking against groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America. His complaint is that these groups try to portray U.S. Muslims as victims, mix Islamism with politics and try to downplay the obvious connections between Islam and terrorism.
Eating bacon. My grandkids love it. And, full disclosure, I’m a fan of it too. But some people don’t like it. Too greasy. Too fattening. Too salty. Some even complain the aroma gets into the furniture.
But other people hate bacon for entirely different reasons.
It offends them. It violates them. It can send them directly to hell.
So Muslims think Americans have gone insane. Who can blame them? To watch and read our news, and listen to our "enlightened" leaders, we no longer see a concrete difference between males and females. A society that cannot see that is not destined for long-term survival.
Why is this clash of civilizations happening right now?
The current clash is the natural result of competing – and extremely divergent – worldviews. Though many ideologies compete for the minds, souls and direction of mankind, there are four main combatants: Secular humanism, Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
At the root of the enmity is the core question of whether God exists and man’s secular and religious duties that flow from either belief or nonbelief.
Fake crimes and phony incident reports are an increasingly common weapon of minorities trying to strike blows against majorities. One reason they have become so plentiful is our leftist, clueless, easily-fooled news media.
The Christian Action Network (CAN) has announced its campaign to stop the United States Department of Education (DOE) from pressuring public schools to incorporate Islamic indoctrination into their classrooms.
At a time in our nation when it is forbidden to express Christian faith in any way in a public school, parents across the nation are becoming increasingly outraged and vocal about Islamic curricula and school activities designed to normalize and mainstream Islam.
Never mind that people were killed and maimed by Islamist suicide bombers in a Brussels airport this week, and that Christians continue to be slaughtered in Syria and Iraq. There was also some real, brutal victimization going on, right here in the United States.
Students at Emory University awoke on Monday to a hideous spectacle: Someone had written the name of a popular presidential candidate on surfaces all over campus ... in chalk.
Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities in the Middle East are currently being targeted by Islamic extremists for harassment, displacement and outright slaughter. One hundred and seventy members of the United States Congress are co-sponsoring legislation to declare the murderous actions of ISIS as “genocide” and a “war crime.” The Christian Action Network has begun a petition to support passage of this resolution by the Senate.
According to science, human beings come in two distinct flavors, male and female, with only the rarest exceptions. It doesn’t set people free to deny this scientific fact. It certainly isn’t good for civilization to try to force the issue on people … namely men and women trying to answer the call of nature in peace.
This week, sports-gear manufacturer Nike flatly rejected a famous spokesman’s diversity and and committed discrimination of the most blind and ignorant kind — the kind that doesn’t even know it’s being discriminatory.
