  • Dear Dave,

    Very well said. Particularly in these hyper sensitive "politically correct" times.

  • David you are right. Tolerance of Christianity and tolerance of Islam are two different things. One seeks to influence, the other to conquer by the shedding of blood. I can hear the cries of protest now, "Not all Muslims are like that!" That is true, but all Muslims embrace the Quran. The Muslim scripture is a book of anger and revenge.

    Some will point to the crusades and say there is therefore no difference between the two religions. While I can't defend the crusades, there is today no similarity between the mindset of Christianity and Islam. Jesus taught forgiveness, Mohamed taught war. Jesus appealed to the heart with love and promise, Mohamed threatened death to those who would not convert. While God calls us to love every Muslim, He also calls us to wisdom and to defend the truth. Not with violence, but by proclamtion and love.

    You said it well in your last paragraph

    "It appears if America would choose Islam as the basis for law and lifestyle, likely the shooting and bombing could be stopped. But, prudence here demands pointing out that the written record indicates those who (even by keeping silent) denied the Lord God Jehovah were "left to the mercy of the enemy".
