Donald Trump is making headlines on a daily basis, his latest statements being to question whether mosques should remain open for business right here in good old America. In an interview with CNBC, Trump said:
“You’re going to have to watch and study the mosques because a lot of talk is going on at the mosques. From what I heard, in the old days, meaning a while ago, we had great surveillance going on in and around mosques in New York City and I understand our mayor totally cut that out.”
Asked about possibility of France shutting mosques with radical ties and whether he’d do same as U.S. president, Trump said, “I would hate to do it, but it’s something that you’re going to have to strongly consider because some of the ideas and some of the hatred, the absolute hatred, is coming from these areas.”
The United States has morphed culturally, and quickly, on a breakneck descent into decay, as long held values have been questioned, then maligned and ridiculed, and now put on the ropes. Those who still hold to Jude0-Christian ethics are battered and bloody, as enemies of such ideals move in for the kill.
We’re no longer living in Mayberry.
Naturally those living in a land whose president is an unabashed apologist for Islam feel the government-sanctioned heat, and are left flailing in a barren, lawless land, with no Sheriff Taylor to stand in the gap for that which they hold dear. Even the bloody Paris massacre cannot elicit one syllable of outrage from Lord Obama, who is sensitive only to the hurt feelings any criticism of Muslims may cause.
Along comes The Donald, ostensibly saying, “To hell with that!”
Those are poll numbers you see shooting upwards through the sky, like fireworks off the top of the Statue of Liberty.
Trump is espousing a sentiment held by scores of voiceless Americans, including this one, who feels the welcome mat should be yanked from under any building sitting under a star and crescent.
Of course, the politically correct demagogues will be quick to belch phrases such as “first amendment,” and “freedom of religion.” Of course, they never seem to have a voice when the subject is a Christian Church.
My argument is simply this: a hallmark trait which qualifies any system of belief as being a legitimate religion is peaceful adherence to tenets of same. Coercion can never be involved.
On this test, Islam fails. Miserably.
And it has been failing miserably since the 7th century.
One does not see Buddhists beheading those who refuse to practice Buddhism.
One does not see Jews crucifying children who reject their Faith.
One does not see Hindus locking people in cages and setting them on fire because they will not comply.
One does not see Christians stoning women to death for refusing to confess Christ as the Son of God.
The ignorant, reckless and poorly timed assessment of George W. Bush, classifying Islam as a “religion of peace” just days after the 9/11 attacks ring very hollow in the ears of Americans who know better.
The overwhelming evidence counters W’s absurd claims.
In no sane society does Islam meet any criteria of being a religion. Islam is simply this: an ideology of violent expansion. Islam has a zero tolerance policy for those who refuse to submit to its Satanic teachings. In Islam, it is simple: convert or die. And your death will be of the grisly sort.
The notion of shutting mosques down in America is not novel, nor should it be. It should be on the agenda of every local town council meeting, if the town gives a whit about the health of its community. Local mosques who seem harmless serve as a facade for what Islam and its true intentions really are, and it is high time all Americans realize this. Those who serve as amateur apologists for this hellish philosophy are either unaware of the true nature of Islam, or possess such a vile hatred for Christianity that they see themselves as bedfellows in a common jihad.
America is either going to wake up, or be overrun by its enemies.
Brash though he may be, Trump is on to something.
