American Liberals and Radical Islam: A Naive Infatuation…Born of Cowardice?

Islam cartoonThe attention of the world, America included, continues to be focused on the followers of Mohammed

It seems like Europe’s Liberal Governments have finally figured out that the radical adherents to Islam, actually are immersed in a jihad, and actually intend to kill all the “infidels” they can.

Unfortunately, the veil has not yet lifted from the eyes of American liberals.

And, it won’t, while the current Administration remains in the White House.

America’s Liberals are both in love with and deathly afraid of Radical Muslims, living their lives, consumed by a bizarre mixture of naive infatuation and cowardice.

For example…

CNSNews.com reports that

Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson said that when the Duck Dynasty show began on A&E in 2012, the video editors, based in Los Angeles, would often take out the words “in Jesus’ name” from the family prayer scene because they thought the name “Jesus” might “offend some of the Muslims or something.”

Robertson said he advised the show’s producers, in West Monroe, La., that they and the entire world kept time, the “year of Our Lord,” A.D., Anno Domini, based upon Jesus Christ and that it would not hurt to “throw His name in there from time to time,” and he noted that this example represented, the “spiritual warfare” that is always occurring.

Robertson made his comments during an interview with reporters for Sports Spectrum TV. He first related that video editors of Duck Dynasty initially added bleeps to the audio to suggest there was profanity when there was, in fact, no cursing by the cast members.  Robertson got the editors to stop making those insertions.

He then recounted, “The other thing was when we prayed, we said, ‘In Jesus’ name. Amen.’ Now, I don’t have any verse that says you must always use or pray in the name of Jesus but it’s a very good idea, I think.  So they were just having me saying, ‘Thank you Lord for the food, thank you for loving us. Amen.’”

“So I said, why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name’?” recalled Robertson.  “They said, ‘Well, those editors are probably doing that and they just think, you know, they don’t want to maybe offend some of the Muslims or something.’”

“I said, let’s see now, what year is it?” he said.  “They said, what?  I said, what year is it? They said, well, it’s 2012. I said 2012 AD. Anno Domini, the year of Our Lord. I said, you Hollywood cats are counting time by Jesus just like I am. “

“I would think out of all the people that walked planet Earth, if we’ve all decided in America here to count time by just one of them, Jesus of Galilee, then I don’t think it hurts to throw His name in there from time to time,” recounted Robertson, who is an elder at the White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La.

“Your calendar’s based on it,” said Robertson. “They said, we never thought of it like that. I said, duh, give me a break. So I notice now, every once in awhile they leave it [name of Jesus] in there. “

“But you have to remember, it’s spiritual warfare,” said Robertson.  “You have people with — what do they say — no moral compass. It ain’t there. So, I tell people, be patient. Just be patient. We’re working on it. We just have to do it. They’re the ones that, they own the network and they’re filming the show. We signed a contract with them, okay, and it’s a work house.”

“But people have to understand, the people of God have to understand that you have to be patient,” said Robertson.  “You don’t turn that ship quickly. It’s a big ship. A lot of depravity, a lot of heathen, a lot of the evil one. He is entrenched in the United States. So you’re not going to turn it like shoo! You know what I’m saying?”

Spiritual warfare, indeed. And, all done in the name of “religious accommodation”.

The Washington Times reports that

Duke University has decided to reverse its plan to sound the Muslim call-to-prayer from a chapel bell tower on campus after receiving a wave of backlash from Christians who called the plan unfair.

“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students,” said Michael Schoenfeld, Duke’s vice president for public affairs and government relations, a local CBS affiliate reported. “However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”

The university had intended to allow the Duke Muslim Students Association to chant the call to prayer — called the adhan — on Friday from the Duke Chapel bell tower.

Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life, explained that the call “connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation,” CNN reported.

The plan was swiftly rejected by religious groups.

Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, wrote on Facebook: “As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering and beheading Christians, Jews and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism. I call on the donors and alumni to withhold their support from Duke until this policy is reversed.”

Mr. Graham’s message was shared nearly 60,000 times.

“When did Christians end up being the bad guys! Political correctness is going to destroy this country,” Nancy Kain Walls responded. “God help us.”

“I have a feeling that separation of church and state in this country only applies if its Christianity,” wrote Cindee Parker. “Any other religion is free to do whatever they wish.”

“It is a CHAPEL not a mosque,” wrote Merrie Spencer Rancourt. “Duke was founded as a Methodist university. If Muslims want to have a call to prayer, then they should purchase the land and build a tower, just like Methodists built the Chapel.”

As Rev. Graham stated so eloquently, Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 75% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Liberalism, as a political ideology, is only embraced by 23% of Americans, per gallup.com.

Christianity, on the other hand, as I just stated, is the Faith of 75% of Americans, again, per gallup.com.

You Libs are betting on the wrong horse.

I’ve read The Book.

I know Who wins.

Until He Comes,

KJ
