Chris Matthews said that the Texas incident was a mousetrap for terrorism, and that event organizers crossed a line. The Trifecta Gang rips this apart.
 
Insulting Islam is a GREAT 1st Amendment Right

On May 4th I posted on the attack by a couple of Muslims dedicated to Sharia Law and thus felt obligated to shoot up a Muslim Cartoon Contest (officially: Muhammad Art Exhibit) in Garland Texas. Amidst all the details I was aware of only one shooter’s name – Elton Simpson. I have since discovered that Simpson’s buddy was Nadir Soofi who also was born in the USA.
 
I mentioned in that May 4 post that the American Left and Muslim apologists (See Also Hot Air) lambasted Pamela Geller as the primary organizer of the Muhammad Art Exhibit held at Curtis Culwell Center located at Garland TX. In listening to my favorite Conservative source Fox News, I began to realize that a large amount of Conservatives are also throwing Ms. Geller under the bus. (See Also American Thinker)
 
Now I realize Ms. Geller is a bit brassy in her communication skills but I always attributed that to the NYC culture her accent intoned. I was a member of the dreaded telemarketing industry for a number of years where I discovered calling people in NYC was a bit challenging. Even New Yorkers trying to be polite had a tendency toward a bit of harsh language.
 
In my opinion Geller’s brassiness makes her a target of uncomplimentary remarks about her political stands and her Counterjihad activism. Add this to the fact Geller is on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hit list of venom against Biblical Christians, Conservatives and Counterjihadists. If you are a member of any of those groups the SPLC will label you a racist. Leftists and Muslim Apologists love to use the SPLC as a source in denigrating Pamela Geller.
 
Evidently people all across the political and religious spectrum that support Free Speech are accusing Geller of crude incitement inviting violence to come her way and against all those that share Geller’s sentiments about Islam. So the question is: Does exposing the vile nature of a self-described religion with writings considered holy by that religion’s adherents which calls to hate non-members even to kill them if they don’t submit, incitement to commit violence and murder?
 
One thing I have wrestled with on a personal level as a Born Again Charismatic Christian Right kind-of-guy is how to get along with adherents of Islam who consider the Quran the divine revealed word of Allah. Islam’s history against Christianity is much more horrific than Christianity’s history against Islam. From the time Islam came into existence under the direction of Mohammed, Muslims have conquered Christian lands which included raping, pillaging, stealing, enslavement and forced cultural submission or death. Christianity’s horrific history against Muslims was horribly violent and often times led to Muslim deaths; however the Christian heinous acts against Muslims for the few hundred years that were the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. BUT even with the indictment of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition those originated from the brutal assaults by Muslim invaders and the retaking of Christian lands stolen by Muslims. AND YET Muslims are still attacking and slaughtering Christians in horrific manners in the 21st century. So what am I wrestling with such hypocrisy from Muslims that do acts of violence for just insulting Mo and Allah in harmless ways?
 
Unlike Mo, Jesus Christ the Son of God tells Believers to turn the other cheek when stricken:
 
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
 
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (Matthew 5: 38-39, 43-45 NKJV)
 
Mo told his believer to kill the unbelievers (kafir) until they submit or die:
 
Sahih International
Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
 
Muhsin Khan
Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
 
Yusuf Ali
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Quran 9:29 [3 English Translations])
 
On the other hand Jesus did not tolerate hypocrisy:
 
13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” (John 2: 13-16 NKJV)
 
 
 
It was the height of hypocrisy that the Chief Priests allowed the Temple Court to be a money-making enterprise rather than a placed of devotion to God Almighty. It is also the height of hypocrisy in Islam to place such a high pedestal of adoration for the same man who had a revelation of a merciful Allah in Mecca then transformed into a murderous, pillaging, sex-slaving head of an organized military operation using a merciful Allah as an excuse to impose Mo’s will first on Arab polytheists, then Jews and then planting a vision against Christians.
 
Mohammed organized a religion that is specifically an antichrist religion that attacks the very essence of who Jesus Christ is as the resurrected fully human as the son of Mary and fully God as the Son of God the Father who died and rose again to give humanity an opportunity to end its rebellious nature established under Adam’s sell-out and re-embrace Life in the Presence of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
 
For this reason I have no problem with Pamela Geller and like-minded people organizing an essentially peaceful protest against a religion that advocates killing non-Muslims for refusing to submit to Allah and the set of rules of submission derived from the Quran, Hadith and Sira. My God! In a Muslim dominated nation if a Christian demands that Muslims respect his beliefs that Jesus is the Son of God who died on the Cross and Arose again to life, that Christian will be killed either on the spot by an enraged mob or via a Sharia legal system that tells Christians that such beliefs are blasphemy to Mo and Allah. Condemning Pamela Geller for poking fun at the reality of Mohammed’s insane intolerance and hatred is idiotic in comparison to the suffering Christians experience for simply being faithful!  
 
With that in mind I received an interesting email from DefendChristians.org’s Dr. Gary L. Cass that tells Americans not to blame the victims of the object of Muslim intolerance but rather blame the religion Islam for its inherent violence promoted by its considered holy writings. Unfortunately Dr. Cass did not specifically stick up for Pamela Geller as an organizer but he does stick up for the intended victims of the Mohammed Cartoon Contest.
 
Before proceeding to Dr. Cass allow me to leave you with a paraphrased from memory quote from Robert O’Neil a retired Navy SEAL involved in taking out Osama bin Laden:
 
“Two Muslims came to Garland to stop the First Amendment and met Texans armed with the Second Amendment”. (I wish I could remember the exact wording so I have to admit to a paraphrase which I heard sometime on May 6th on the Fox News channel.)

On Sunday two Muslim-Americans were shot and killed after they opened fire on a group in Dallas, Texas viewing an exhibition of cartoon depictions of the Prophet Mohammed. Thankfully the security was armed and ready and responded immediately to protect the innocent bystanders.
 
Now, The Islamic State (ISIS) is claiming responsibility for the attack and threatening more. When he was alive, insecure Mohammed had two people assassinated for writing satirical poems about him. ISIS are simply following the murderous Mohammed’s example.
 
But blasphemy is a sin that can only be directed towards God. Mohammed was not God, therefore there is no blasphemy in depicting him.
 
Not to be outdone, the liberal media is placing the blame on the exhibition viewers. According to the politically correct liberals, drawing Mohammed makes you a bully. The truth about Islam continues to be underplayed and reduced to random extremists. The reality is that these “extremists” are simply following the example of their leader, Mohammed.

We are seeing the ugly specter of Islam as it follows the murderous example of their “prophet” Mohammed in its violent march to dominate the world by the sword of Allah. Just this past few days we’ve witnessed Muslims throwing Christians refugees overboard in the Mediterranean Sea to drown, or murdering 30 Christian men in Ethiopia, the persecution goes on unabated.
 
For years we’ve documented the wholesale murder of Christians by Muslims across the world and now the world is starting to awaken. This week Franklin Graham called what ISIS in the Middle East and Boko Harem in Nigeria are doing a holocaust of Christians. Even the Pope is speaking out.
 
Just last month in March, there have been 244 documented Jihad attacks in 25 countries with 38 suicide bombings that killed 1,975 and critically injured 2,076. For the record, the number of bombings by Baptists in the same period- 0, the same for Presbyterians, Lutherans and Catholics.

With all the horrific news coming out around the world about Islamic violence against Christians, Jews and even other Muslims, I’m grateful more ministers are speaking out. As those commissioned to bear witness to the truth, we need to be biblically bold and accurate. Some of the things that are being said are true as far as they go, but they don’t tell the whole story.
 
One minister recently pointed out that Mohammed is dead and buried in Medina, but that Jesus is risen from the dead. The question is asked, “Who do you want to follow, the living Christ or dead Mohammed.” This is true and yet might be a bit biblically confusing.
 
CHRIST MUST BE ALIVE OR ELSE
 
 
Christ’s resurrection is not a peripheral doctrine you can take or leave and still be considered a Christian. It is so essential to our faith that without it, according the New Testament itself, Christianity is worthless. “And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins.” I Corinthians 15:17.  
 
 
I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE MOHAMMED
 
Mohammed is very much alive. He did not cease to exist upon physical death, nor is he in his imaginary celestial brothel. He is NOT experiencing the unspeakable and unimaginable joys of eternal life in heaven with Christ, rather he is suffering in the unspeakable and unimaginable torments of eternal death.
  
Mohammed, like all mortal men, is accountable to God. Sadly for Mohammed, his legacy is that of being Christ’s sworn enemy.  Mohammed has READ THE REST

I confess, I’m “Islamaphobic,” but for very good reasons.
 
My fear is not an irrational fear based on uniformed prejudice; rather it’s an historic, clear eyed, informed, rational fear. ISSA is doing to America journalists what every true follower of Mohammed wants to do to you and yours; subjugate or murder you. They believe they have been given a mandate by Allah (Satan) to dominate the world.
 
Fourteen hundred years of history, both ancient and modern (i.e. the 1 to 1.5 million dead Armenians at the hands of the Muslim Turks in 1915) tell us that Muslims are deadly serious about their infernal goals. Now we get to watch their violent, demonic fanaticism on Youtube videos.
 
History shows where Muslims get the power and means to subjugate and behead Christians, Jews, et al, they do it. Why? It’s really very simple: its what Mohammed did and taught. So READ THE REST
 
Dr. Cass Explains his Islamophobia
 
DefendChristians.org Commentary

In my article, “I’m Islamaphobic, Are You?,” I advocated for the right and duty of Christians to defend themselves against the vicious attacks of Islam. To some I am a prophet, to others a heretic that ought to be brought up on charges.
 
Some of the criticisms are from the usual suspects, like the totally discredited liberal activists from the Southern Poverty Law Center. They will always twist and take what I say in the worst possible way. That’s to be expected and taken with a huge grain of salt.
 
Other concerns come from sincere people with honest questions. So, here’s an attempt at “splainin” my position to my fellow Christians and friends. I don’t expect people who are not constrained by the authority of God’s Word to care or agree. …
 
 
“Phobia” means fear. It is a tactic of the advocates of political correctness to demonize people by calling them a “homophobe,” “xenophobe,” etc. as if just calling the opponents a name ending in “phobe” defines them as irrational or prejudiced.
 
 
A true follower of Mohammed is one who takes what Mohammed did and taught seriously, just as a sincere follower of Christ takes Christ’s example and words seriously. Mohammed declared that it was Allah’s will for Muslims to rule the world and subjugate all non-Muslims. They are to accomplish this not simply by an appeal to hearts and minds, as Christianity ought to grow, but by the sword of Allah, or Jihad.
 
Allah is not the God of the Bible. Anyone who says we worship the same God is simply wrong or intentionally deceitful. Christians confess there is READ THE REST

The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) is a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) Education Corporation READ MORE
 
The idea of the Christian Anti-defamation Commission (CADC) is not new. It has been publicly discussed since at least 1996, and perhaps as early as the 1980s. In October of 1999, General William Hollis, J.D., Ph.D., incorporated the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission.
 
 

Because of extenuating circumstances in the General’s life, the CADC was largely inactive until the summer of 2007. After serving three years as the Executive Director of the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, an outreach of Coral Ridge Ministries, founded by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy, Reverend Gary Cass, M.A., D.Min., was made the Chairman and CEO of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. Dr. Cass has been a pastor, missionary, pro-life, pro-family advocate, and elected official for over twenty years, speaking out and acting on behalf of the Christian faith and Christian values.

  1. Reblogged this on A Conservative Christian Man and commented:
    There is no line in real freedom of speech. The right was included precisely to preserve the speech that is nor popular or is not in compliance with government wants, to allow all citizens to speak their mind on any issue or topic without fear of government reprisal, either direct or through proxies.
