A master architect built a fine estate on a thousand acres, high atop a hill, with views exceeding 5 countries. A massive display of craftsmanship, skill, foresight, after sight, knowledge, as well as an unequalled eye for detail in hiring the finest tradespeople of the world to erect his vision, brought him acclaim from far and wide, and rightfully so.
Years of planning and construction gave birth to a place among places, a piece of heaven on earth where the visitor could only say: Wow. That’s right, to describe the finished product with words would diminish the result. There are no words to speak of such magnificence.
There were rooms with five ft. ceilings, and rooms with vaulted ceilings of twelve, twenty-four, and fifty-six feet. There were pool rooms with 3 and 9 ft tables with gorgeous cues, and there were Olympic pool rooms which would make Michael Phelps envious.
When I read ‘s post I decided to have a little “fun” and investigate. This story has actually been around for awhile; it’s just that the implications continue to become more dire, but there is an amusing aspect. Consider this September 2013 story, Residents complain that ‘call to prayer’ is too loud.
The debate over the Muslim call to prayer is reverberating once again.
At last week’s city council meeting, several residents of the Hamtramck Senior Plaza apartments on Holbrook complained about the volume level of the call to prayer coming from the Ideal Islamic Center, located across from the apartment complex.
Jeanette Powell said she’s not complaining as a way to “bash anyone’s religion.”
She said the call or prayer was broadcast at 6 a.m. and found the volume “overbearing.” (continued here)
Since the Ideal Islamic Center (another name for mosque) blasts its call to prayer five times a day, I expect that those atheists, agnostics, and doubters who are hostile to religion are probably fit to be tied. However, for some reason Muslims generally don’t seem to be much concerned by the possibility of offending such people. Christians would be. Muslims? Nope!
My personal concern is that I don’t want to see my country slowly turned into an Islamic caliphate. Because I fully support defending freedom of religion, I don’t see anything to gain by allowing hordes of Muslims into our country. There are plenty of nations dominated by Muslims, and most of them vigorously deny their citizens freedom of religion.
Even The Washington Post, famed for its propensity for putting lipstick on a pigs observed:
Is it true that Islam is uniquely unreceptive to religious freedom? Comparative political science can offer some helpful perspective. An aggregate, satellite view does indeed show a dearth of religious freedom in Islam. A comparison between the world’s 47 or so Muslim-majority countries and the rest of the world – derived from measurements developed by sociologists Brian Grim and Roger Finke and undergirding the Pew Forum’s rankings on religious freedom – shows that Islam clearly has considerably lower levels of religious freedom than the rest of the world and Christian-majority countries. (from here)
When the writer came down to earth, what countries did that Washington Post article identify as religiously free?
Finally, the Muslim world also contains religiously free regimes, adding even further complexity to the negative judgment of the satellite view. Examples of such regimes include Kosovo, Djibouti, Albania, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone – most of them noticeably outside the Arab world. (from here)
These nations represent the tiny exceptions that prove the rule. Each of these “religiously free” countries are small nations that have historical ties to the West. All of them are also poor. Therefore, their ties with the West remain important. So it is doubtful that their governments would risk overt discrimination against non-Muslims.
Anyway, back to that call to prayer story. Here are some of the news reports. First, let’s hear from the so-called Liberal papers.
Shariahville, USA: Cities ‘surrender’ to Islam by WND and Would liberals mind living next to mosques? by The American Thinker consider a plain fact. Hamtramck, Michigan is being invaded by an alien culture. When modern Liberals (not the sort of Liberal Thomas Jefferson was) speak of diversity, what they are doing is denying our People any right to protect the culture of America. Instead, because they hate America’s culture, they insist upon “diversity,” that all cultures are equally valid. What those Liberals are doing in practice is enabling those who would destroy America’s culture. Blind to the simple fact that some cultures promote rotten beliefs, these so-called Liberals risk depriving us our rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Islam is both a religion and a political system. The political system approved by Islam is Sharia. Because Sharia is a theocratic system, it is incompatible with America’s Constitution. Hence, we have nothing whatsoever to gain by bringing people who believe in Islam into our nation. In fact, when we do so, we risk national suicide.
Excellent approach! I just have one suggestion. I have little use for the United Nations. I don’t think the organization is effective, particularly in a military context. I think a NATO task force would be more effective. Otherwise, ISIS would infiltrate the safe zones, and they would soon cease to be safe.
I would say you understand this Atheist a bit better than I.
His conniving is bit much. I wonder if he understands the evil he does. To teach children God is evil? To teach children that God is malevolent. Does he? Perhaps not, but he fabricates the doctrine, and teaching children to adore vile gods has been what some of the civilizations of men have done. What abominations they were, and they are!
For those who don’t know, John Zande of superstitious naked ape fame is a militant atheist I sometimes chat with. He’s written a book and his latest theory is that God is malevolent, evil, based mostly on teleology. Teleology is “a reason or explanation for something in function of its end, purpose, or goal.” In short Zande theorizes that based on the condition of the world around us, we have a malevolent creator, one unworthy of our belief.
Over at Silence’s place he left me a comment that I simply must elaborate on because it so perfectly encapsulates the kind of psychological abuse and brainwashing that I experienced as a child, at the hands of…. you guessed it, militant atheists.
I don’t want to lament this fact, I simply want to acknowledge that there is a heavy cultural meme going on right now that tries to claim Christian parents brainwash…
