ON THE VERIFIABLE NEWS that Geert Wilders requires six body guards to travel around these days, I think it’s more than a little ironic that Muslims and their left-wing shills in the West continue to trot out a host of anti-Christian moral relativism these days. Of course, nobody needs six body guards for supporting or trashing a Richard Dawkins book or for watching an anti-Christian documentary will scourge the airwaves…
And this is the real message of the Fitna film. But of course, once again, Islam will prove the point of this movie by responding to claims that it is a violent religion by reacting with violence.
For all the moral relativism sulking about, this is because Christians of every stripe are enough confident in their own faith that they can withstand criticism of their religion. It is because of Christ’s teachings that his followers don’t terrorize non-believers, history notwithstanding. Moshiach told his followers to LOVE their enemies, presumably, as he loved those who hated him, and were about to deliver him up to death. Moral relativists like to point to the past in bloodying the street cred of Christianity, but the fact remains, despite all the theological hocus pocus long in the tooth on both sides of this Abrahamic divide, the immediate danger to those of us living in the flesh today lies not in the past, but in contemporary times. And Christians, despite their many failings, do not currently own this albatross (except fool leaders who fight wars like pansies)…
Muhammad on the other hand didn’t set a very high bar of righteousness nor was a very good role model for his followers, for he was quick to anger, and reacted by killing those that would not revel in his bastardized version of Allah.
Muslims revere the fact that Muhammad was a fierce warrior and led inspired armies in crushing his opponents. If he did not kill them on the spot, he gave them two choices—convert or die (both mortally and immortally). Why do you expect his followers to be anything different 1400 years later?
Islam was born from violence and continues in this practice today.

April 16 – Where The Buffalo Roam
Is the United States of America mentioned in scripture? If so where do we find this mention? If these two questions pose a curiosity to you, I recommend the following video. Do I personally believe every word of this testimonial video? To that question, I have no response, but I can say that this is a very interesting take on both the United States and on certain clippings of scripture, scripture most likely already familiar to you but applied by Read more »
Outreach To Whom? Unto Thee We Plead… I did not write the following. It is a found piece I thought needed a place from which to launch new inquiry. Today I am not inquiring, merely re-posting it. It is unsigned, but with a solid point of view. Soon, I hope to return to this letter with a few questions and statements of my own. First of all, there is nothing I can dispute in this first paragraph concerning Mister Hogue. He is indeed a rogue scholar, Read more »
