CULTS VS. RELIGION
by Dr. Thomas E. Davis, Colonel, USA (Ret), ©2016
A cult is defined as “a system of religious veneration and devotion directed towards a particular figure or object.”
Most Americans and the rest of the world are knowledgeable about the Jones religious cult and the mass murder-suicide in November 1978 of 918 of its members in Jonestown, Guyana. In April 1993, under orders of Bill Clinton’s Attorney General Janet Reno, David Koresh, the leader of the Branch Davidian Cult and 80 followers burned to death as federal agents attempted to take control of the compound.
Even World War II saw the horrific endings to the demands of a cult when Japanese military leader, Hideki Tojo, ordered that the Japanese living on Okinawa and the military defenders commit suicide rather than be captured by the “barbarian Americans.” Our military watched in absolute disbelief as “The three-month battle for Okinawa took more than 200,000 lives — 12,520 Americans, 94,136 Japanese soldiers, and 94,000 Okinawan civilians, about one-quarter of the prewar population.”
Most cults have some sexual connection. Jones and Koresh used their leadership position to demand and obtain sexual activity with the female members, both mature and children. Both Jones and Koresh were active pederasts. Tojo simply instilled fear into the Japanese that Americans would rape and kill Okinawan women and children as the Japanese had done throughout China.
Now that the stage is set, let me turn to the MAJOR problem this planet is facing. That problem is the palpable threat of Muhammad’s rabid cult of Islam. I use ‘rabid’ in its most accurate sense of “irrationally extreme in opinion or practice.”
The acknowledged founder of Islam, Muhammad, born approximately 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, was orphaned at an early age; he was raised under the care of his paternal uncle, Abu Talib. “When he was nearly 40, he used to spend many hours alone in prayer and speculating over the aspects of creation.”
There are no known sources verifying Muhammad’s reports. The main source is the Quran with its many contributors and curators and accompanying “oral tradition.” Quranic scholars note that “Muslims claim that because Muhammad was illiterate, he could not have written the Qur’an, and thus the Qur’an is a miracle, Muhammad’s primary miracle. This idea of illiteracy is supported in the Qur’an:”
Peoples of the time of Muhammad were respected and some quite well-known for their abilities to be able to recite many generations of family lineage. Written records were few and the “oral tradition” was depended upon to pass historical information to succeeding generations. This had to have been the source of Muhammad’s knowledge of Jewish and Christian beliefs. There was no other means by which he could have known about Gabriel and the Annunciation. The likelihood of Muhammad being an attentive listener to the Jewish traders traveling into and through Mecca would account for his reported hours sent in introspection and deliberation on the nature of Creation. He would have learned about Monotheism, prophets and the beliefs of the Jews and the emergence of Christianity, since Christ’s disciples traveled far and wide during his 40-day ministry following his crucifixion and resurrection.
To an enterprising con-man, this presented a great opportunity for immediate notoriety and possibly fame and fortune. There can be no doubt that Muhammad was enamored of the female of the species, as he took to wife “thirteen women. Muslims refer to them as Mothers of the Believers.”
Though Muhammad spoke of the ill treatment of women, the current practices within Islam put the lie to any equality. Muslims follow the Quran’s admonitions and are instructed to beat disobedient wives. Men are taught, according to the Quran, that only the male is to derive any pleasure from the act of coition; a clitorectomy is performed on girls at an early age and then the Quran notes that girls at age 9 may be used for sex. The Quran also notes that those who sacrifice their lives in the name of Allah will be presented with 72 virgins in heaven. As a fitting conclusion to this history, I leave you with this horribly grotesque and inhumane tidbit: the Ayatollah Khomeini took to his bed in the home of friends the four-year-old daughter of one friend and raped her repeatedly.
In summary; this republic should NOT provide a home for any adherent to the cult of islam. To do so is to invite our own destruction. The closest cult we have to the cult of islam is an organization known as NAMBLA. Its member and its supporters advocate and practice sex with young boys.
Our hemophilic Obama has done all he is able to convert all Americans to his supported lifestyle, that of the LGBTQ. All the foregoing leads to but one unalterable conclusion; Donald Trump was 100% correct in his statement that ALL Muslims SHOULD BE banned, at least temporarily, from entering the country. Mr. Trump; do not back down, apologize or vacillate. We the People back your position 100%.
Members of and/or advocates for NAMBLA, in particular, and members or advocates of the LGBTQ organizations or memberships should be ostracized for any public speech in advocacy and arrested if caught practicing this God-forbidden activity. Freedom to live is a privilege AND a right; debauchery is neither!
