THIS PASTOR IS DRAWING A LINE IN THE SAND
by Kathleen Gotto
(Sept. 8, 2010) — Considering all those who are coming out against the Florida pastor exercising his First Amendment right, I do not want to count myself as being in their number. I say, “Burn, baby, burn!” Of course, nice Christians and normal conservatives just would not do such a thing, because we are mostly peaceful and law-abiding citizens and want to live and let live. However, I say, “Why not exercise a Constitutional right to protest against the evil that was perpetrated against us on 9/11 and continues to be perpetrated against us with the victory mosque the Muslims want to build in NYC and other inroads they are making in our country?”
When has anyone yet stood up to the Islamist terrorists? At the center of Sept 11 was the core teaching of Islam that states that the world must either convert to Islam, pay a kafir tax, or be killed. “Moderate” Muslims are those who have not read or followed all the precepts of Islam. From a terrorism seminar I attended a few days ago, I learned that moderate Muslims view terrorists as the “gold standard.” Puts a different perspective on things, doesn’t it? It all comes from their damnable, evil Quran. If this pastor is prevented in any way from exercising his rights, it will be a HUGE victory for Islam and will further embolden them to make even deeper incursions into the very fabric of our society. This pastor is drawing a line in the sand. Whether or not it is something any of us would do, he is taking on Islam. Do we cower in fear because “Oh, no, now there will be repercussions,” or do we engage the enemy who is already here among us, and drive home the message that we will NOT be intimidated, we will NOT be cowed, we will NOT fear what they will do, and we WILL push back! If Muslims want to burn the Bible, let them. What a sweet fragrance would rise to the heavens!
Listen folks, American citizens are at more risk than our military if all hell breaks loose over this. Why? Because we are not armed and trained as our military are and terrorists can cause more harm here at home in a large shopping center, a children’s nursery, churches, synagogues, etc. There would be widespread panic and unspeakable pain and suffering here at home right in front of our eyes. It is a horrible thing to hear of the devastation our troops face on the battlefield. That horror would be multiplied ten times over with homegrown killing of the innocent.
If anyone believes there will not be another terrorist attack here, he or she is living in denial. Not burning the Quran will not prevent the next terrorist attack. The terrorists need no provocation for their evil deeds. Most Christians just do not understand, or even want to understand, the barbaric, maniacal, and evil-driven precepts of Islam. Muslims are blinded by the god of this age, and if we can show them a way out of their bondage (that is what it is), then we should do so in any way with which God equips us. But for those who are intent on killing us, there is only one way to deal with them and that is to take them on.
Enough with appeasement and “political correctness.” William S. Lind (Whistleblower, June 2010) states in his article, “Who Stole our Culture?” that political correctness is really cultural Marxism at its core. The drive is to destroy Western culture and the Christian religion. So for Christians, I can only say, “Take off your blinders, wake up, rise up and join the battle!”
