If CAIR's Attacking You, You Must be Good

"The problem is radical Islam. The solution is moderate Islam." No, the solution is Christianity. We need to pressure Muslim countries to open up religious freedom, stop suppressing missionary work, and stop killing apostates. When people over there, especially women, are allowed a taste of Christianity, they will flock to it. (No empirical evidence for this, of course -- just a prediction.)

But seriously, if you had to choose one religion in the world to survive -- it would just be that religion and agnostics/atheists from then on -- which would you choose of these two: Christianity and Islam? Only an idiot or someone who's already a Muslim would pick Islam. Look at predominantly Muslim countries in the world like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, etc., and then look at predominantly Christian countries like the U.S., the U.K., Spain, etc. Which countries would it make you the most nervous to live in, especially if you were a non-believer?

At the very least, you have to recognize this difference between Christianity and Islam -- Christianity calls on its followers only to evangelize nonbelievers; Islam calls on its followers to evangelize, conquer, and suppress nonbelievers. Which means moderate Muslims are constantly having to ignore their religions' teachings and the example of their greatest prophet in order to pursue moderate Islam, whereas Christians, if they were to follow the teachings of Jesus to the letter, would never once lift the sword of war (save in self-defense).

Great post Michael,

... I would add "in defense of others." A friend of mine lost his grandfather - slaughtered in Beirut in 76 for being a priest. The man never lifted a finger to save himself - just gunned down in cold-blood in the name of you-know-who.

... when a man lays down his life to be non-violent - that's blood martyrdom - but if Christians had not taken up arms and defended their people my friend would be a child's body laying in a mass grave... and no doubt uncounted as victim of genocide or 'ethnic cleansing' by the Dem's or the ADL.

"Where are all the moderate Muslims?" It's a question often posed by Americans who watch with disgust as the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other apologists for radical Islam hog all of the attention. CAIR, which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the terror financing Holy Land Foundation case, and which regularly denounces any effort to combat radical Islam as anti-Muslim prejudice, is routinely described in the press as a Muslim "civil rights" group.

Moderate American Muslims exist though. And it's not that hard to find them. Just see who CAIR and the Muslim Public Affairs Council are denouncing.

This week,...
