January 14th, 2015 • Muslim enclaves that are hostile to surrounding communities are springing up across America. Funded by Pakistani radicals, 22 villages in 9 states have been established that are teaching terrorist tactics to members of their compounds.
 
The above video is an interview between Brian Kilmeade and Martin Mawyer of the Christian Action Network. On The Kelly File last night Martin Mawyer was on with sub-host Shannon Bream showing nearly the exact footage of a Christian Action Network expose of Muslim terrorist enclaves operating apparently indiscriminately in U.S. soil. I say “apparently” because the FBI and Homeland Security are acting as if their hands are tied because of the First Amendment rights of Free Speech, Religious Freedom and I’m guessing free assembly. That sounds like a lame excuse especially with so-called lone-wolf terrorist attacks on our soil and let’s use the Charlie Hebdo example of organized terrorism that three terrorists had given  credit al Qaeda and ISIS.
 
No-Go-Zones are a common place occurrence in Europe (including the UK – Emerson apologizes too soon) but especially in France. As an American you may be out of the loop concerning No-Go-Zones (NGZ). As it relates to Islam, a NGZ is an area in a non-Muslim nation in which Muslims are so dominant that a Non-Muslim is prohibited from entry due local restriction or outright fear of Muslim attack. In case you haven’t realized it there are NGZs in the USA; however unlike Europe where Muslims find an urban area to overtake, Muslims in America develop NGZs in rural or out of the way locations. The Martin Mawyer video clips demonstrate the ruralness of NGZs.
 
There are some notable urban areas in the USA in which Muslim immigrants and next-gen Muslim-Americans have begun asserting of a NGZ mentality. The most noted place in my mind is Dearborn (suburb of Detroit), Michigan.

Read full story of stoning here: American Muslims Stone ChristiansIf this extremely disturbing video does not result in a Federal investigation into the human rights violations of those Christians physically attacked at the 2012 Dearborn Arab Festival then we are watching the beginning of a new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA.

In this new America, a MUSLIM AMERICA, shariah-compliant Muslims have succeeded in striking fear into the hearts of the infidels. In the case of the Dearborn Arab Festival, you will see that the infidels are NOT the few, brave Christians who withstood the physical attacks by the blood-thirsty Muslims, but the fearful are those who have taken an oath to protect Americans. The fearful, are the Dearborn Sheriff and Police. Sadly, you will see the Police fearful of confronting the criminals and enforcing the law as they stand by watching “Muslims Gone Wild,” attack the helpless Christians.

The United West predicts that success of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt combined with the mounting fury of the “Arab Spring,” coupled with the support of President Obama will result in an expansive, “strong-horse” onslaught of Muslim physical aggression, similar to this Dearborn disaster, all across the new, MUSLIM AMERICA.

 
Our glorious President Barack Hussein Obama has allowed massive immigration of Muslims from volatile Muslim nations with the predilection to embrace radicalism. America is a nation in which immigrants have us the great melting pot of the world with the best constitutional government that has existed to date. Multicultural Leftist thinking often reminds Conservatives of the USA’s history of immigration but blatantly neglect the “melting pot” element of immigration. America’s Left has spent decades warping the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution. This is particularly the case with the First Amendment.
 
The thing is in America the First Amendment does not give a right to plan or execute violence in the name of Free Speech nor Religious Freedom. When there is any kind of assembly in which the topic is to plan violence or do acts of violence, it is specifically prohibited by the First Amendment. The First Amendment attaches “assembly” with “peaceable”. Muslim enclaves, Leftist political terrorist cells (Weather Underground, SLA, ELF, Black Panther Party, NBPP and etc.), the extreme Right Wing (e.g. KKK, Aryan Nation, White Supremacists in general, violent Nazi organizations [although Right Wing is a misnomer with Hitler’s Nazism]) or whatever political or religious (American Islamic organizations associated with Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabist or Salafist violence; Phineas Priesthood, Army of God and Christian Identity terrorism in general) organizations that are violent by the nature of their advocacy is not – or at least should not – be protected by the First Amendment.
 
The No-Go-Zone phenomena that has already infected Europe will increase in the USA largely due to the Islamic Culture friendly President BHO. I found an editorial on Right Wing News that places in perspective allowing Muslim immigrants into America that have no intention of following the melting pot assimilation paradigm that has made us the most coveted nation to live at in the world:
 
No-go areas are a frightening aspect of the ongoing Islamic conquest of Europe. Local authorities have ceded control of these to Muslims, who live by their own laws and sneer at those of the country they have invaded. Welfare payments go into the no-go areas; nothing except violence comes out. Emergency vehicles require police escorts, as they are often attacked by hostile savages.
 
Europe has a much larger Muslim population than the USA. But already we have no-go areas too:
 
 
There goes the neighborhood.
 
In the U.S., Dearborn, Michigan: Over 100,000 Muslims, 45% of the city has settled into their first ‘no-go’ zone. The city and police officials have been sued in many cases that allege discrimination “against Christians” effectively by the authorities applying Sharia law. Dearborn-Dar-al-Islam, (a place governed by Islamic Sharia law). …
 
If Americans don’t wake up and get their heads out of the sand fast, what’s quickly overtaking Europe will consume the United States. Muslim religious beliefs do not supersede state and federal laws; the Constitution is the law of the land. And yet, we are being invaded, and nothing is being done to stop them.
 
On the contrary, the federal government is aggressively promoting Islamic colonization. The Obama Regime imported nearly 300,000 colonists from Muslim countries in 2013 alone.
 
Unless reversed decisively, this immigration jihad will inevitably lead to more violence inflicted by the so-called Religion of Peace. (Muslim No-Go Zones in the USA; By Dave Blount; Right Wing News; 1/13/15)

Activist Courts Continue to Abuse 1st Amendment


VIDEO: Rally for police captain draws demonstrators

The Tulsa Police Department (TPD) under the management of Police Chief Charles (Chuck) Jordan punished TPD Captain Paul Fields for refusing to attend a mock/deceptive Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at one of the most radicalized Mosques in the United States of America. I have been following since about 2011 when this heinous breech of First Amendment rights of Religious Freedom began to occur.

 

Captain Fields has sued for this punishment and infringement of the First Amendment BUT every level of Court so far has come down on the side of the TPD. A combination of limiting the scope of evidence and misrepresentations by Tulsa City Attorneys has worked against Captain Fields. Ergo, unfortunately Left oriented Judges and Appellate Justices have chosen the multiculturalist approach to favor the TPD and the Radical Mosque (See Also HERE) ruling that there was no breech against Captain Fields’ First Amendment rights and that the Islamic Society of Tulsa (a radical Muslim network of ISNA) was providing a harmless inter-faith community service activity because the TPD was providing protection from hate-threats against the Mosque and Islam.

 

The American Freedom Law Center discusses the Federal case:

 

On February 17, 2011, Captain Fields received an email from his immediate supervisor at the Riverside Division, Major Julie Harris.  This email had the subject line, “Tour of Mosque – March 4,” and stated, in relevant part, “We are directed by [Deputy Chief of Police] Webster to have representatives from each shift—2nd, 3rd, and 4th to attend [the Islamic event].”  This email also contained the directive from Webster, which was pasted into the text of the email.  Webster, with the approval of Chief of Police Jordan, who is also a defendant in this lawsuit, was now ordering officers to attend the Islamic event.  It was no longer voluntary.

 

After receiving the email from Major Harris, Captain Fields met with her to discuss the order from Webster.  He advised Major Harris of his belief that the order was unlawful.  Captain Fields correctly believes that City police officials do not have a right to order police officers to attend an Islamic event against the officers’ personal religious beliefs and convictions.

 

Captain Fields also responded to the order by email.  In his email response, Captain Fields stated that he believed that the order directing officers to attend the Islamic event was “an unlawful order, as it is in direct conflict with my personal religious convictions, as well as to be conscience shocking.”  Captain Fields concluded his email by stating, “Please consider this email my official notification to the Tulsa Police Department and the City of Tulsa that I intend not to follow this directive, nor require any of my subordinates to do so if they share similar religious convictions.”

 

On February 18, 2011, Webster sent a three-page interoffice correspondence to Captain Fields by email that affirmed the order and requested Captain Fields to reconsider his position.  Captain Fields again refused based on his religious beliefs, convictions, and conscience.

 

As a result of Captain Fields’s refusal to compromise his religious beliefs and convictions and violate his conscience, Webster ordered Captain Fields to appear in Jordan’s conference room on Monday, February 21, 2011.

 

During this meeting with Jordan and Webster, Captain Fields again explained that he believed the order was unlawful and that he could not, in good conscience, obey the order nor force the officers under his charge to obey it.

 

At the conclusion of this meeting, Captain Fields was served with a pre-prepared order transferring him to the Mingo Valley Division, as well as a notification that the police department was initiating an internal investigation of him for allegedly violating Rule 6 of the Tulsa Police Department Rules and Regulations (“Duty to be Truthful and Obedient”).  The transfer order stated, “This action is taken in reference to an Internal Affairs administrative investigation regarding the refusal to follow a direct order.”

 

Prior to being transferred for his refusal to violate his personal religious beliefs and those of the officers under his charge, Captain Fields was the shift commander for 26 officers and 5 supervisors.  As a result of this transfer, which is now a permanent part of his personnel record, Captain Fields was stripped of his command and his stellar reputation as a police officer was irreparably tarnished.

 

On March 10, 2011, Captain Fields received an official notification via email stating, “You are hereby notified that Chief Chuck Jordan has requested IA [Internal Affairs] to conduct an administrative investigation in regards to your refusal to attend and refusal to assign officers from your shift, who shared your religious beliefs, to attend the ‘Law Enforcement Appreciation Day’ on March 4, 2011, at the Tulsa Peace Academy [a.k.a. Islamic Society].

 

READ ENTIRETY (Captain Paul Fields v. City of Tulsa, Oklahoma; American Freedom Law Center, H/T Noisy Room 3/25/14)

 

I actually stand by the TPD in providing protection for the Radical Mosque. No matter how much I or some extreme-minded Right Wingers may consider the IST Mosque to be a threat to American Constitutional government or as an anti-Christ religion; until the IST Mosque can get caught red-handed offering material support to Islamic terrorists, act as a front for homegrown Islamic terrorists or as an operational source placing into action the hate-rhetoric spewing from the Muslim equivalent of a pulpit then the IST Mosque itself has First Amendment rights of both Religious Freedom and Free Speech.

 

But when the TPD feels that not enough police volunteered to participate in the IST Mosque’s Law Enforcement Appreciation Day and then orders precinct Captains to participate along with chosen Police Officers; then the violation of Religious Freedom works toward the Officers so ordered.

 

Here are some of the blog posts from SlantRight 2.0 posted about this warped infringement of an individual American citizen Captain Paul Fields:

 

o   What if it was a synagogue?

 

o   Tulsa Police Chief Supports Radical Islamic Mosque

 

o   Stand With Paul Fields August 30

 

o   Tulsa Police Chief Targeted Paul Fields 1st Amendment Rights

 

o   ISNA Radical – OK Local ISNA Chapters Radical – Alton Nolan Radical

 

The only way Christians in America are going to reverse Obama’s fundamental transformation of American culture is if WE begin to be as vocal as Leftist and Muslims are anti-Christian.

 

As long as WE Christians trust in Leftist lies that the U.S. Constitution says there is a Wall of Separation keeping Christian Churches from supporting political candidates that represent Christian ethics and morals then Leftists will be allowed to falsely proclaim that anti-Christian morality is moral with reckless impunity our cultural American Exceptionalism will continue to evaporate.

 

In the same vein, as long as Islam is given an accommodation for Muslims to practice the unconstitutional portions of Sharia then the Liberty and Freedom enshrined in our Constitution will be rendered irrelevant.

 

What is unconstitutional with Sharia?

 

Islam is a theocratic political terrorist regime that hides behind the mask of religion to accomplish its mission of a worldwide caliphate. What most Americans don’t understand is that it is a totalitarian “theo-political” belief system and a social doctrine (the two go hand in hand) based on the Quran, Sirah and Hadith, what Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam aptly coins the “Trilogy of Islam.” It has mandates on every single aspect of life and those mandates are enforced and regulated by the barbaric criminal and civil code known as Sharia Law.

 

 

… In case you are not familiar with some of the condoned atrocities of Islam and Sharia law . . . are you aware that women are stoned to death for committing adultery and that gay men are actually hung? Or that the genitals of little girls are mutilated in order to protect her virginity and that children may be murdered in the name of family honor?

 

 

Understand that Sharia is very complex and it’s derived from multiple Islamic sources. The Quran, considered the “uncreated word of Allah” is the primary source of Sharia law. The Hadith (sayings and actions of Muhammad) is the second most important document in Sharia. Historic rulings by jurists over the years and so-called reasoning by analogy make up the other two, less-influential sources of Sharia. Together they constitute Islam’s theological core and they result in a totalitarian way of life for Muslim followers and non-Muslims (kafirs and infidels).

 

… Sharia demands the death of those who renounce Islam. … Honor killings, marital rape, female genital mutilation, not to mention the severing of hands and feet are but a few of the other components of Sharia.

 

… (Islam and Sharia: Deadly Facts You Should Know; By Kevin A. Lehmann via Catch Kevin; Letting Freedom Ring; 1/25/12)

 

A PDF document from the Center for Security Policy (CSP) that shows the specifics of Sharia contradictions to the U.S. Constitution:

 

Shariah Law vs. the Constitution

Center for Security Policy

 

Article VI: The Constitution is the supreme law of the land

 

Constitution: Article VI: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby”

 

Shariah: “The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah.” (a1.1, Umdat al-salik or The Reliance of the Traveller, commonly accepted work of Shariah jurisprudence); “There is only one law which ought to be followed, and that is the Sharia.” (Seyed Qutb); “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” (Seyed Abul A’ala Maududi)

 

First Amendment: Freedom of religion

 

Constitution: First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”

 

Shariah: “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them.” Quran 4:89; “Whoever changed his [Islamic] religion, then kill him” Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:84:57. In historic and modern Shariah states, Shariah law enforces dhimmi status (second-class citizen, apartheid-type laws) on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, building or repairing churches, raising their voices during prayer or ringing church bells; if dhimmi laws are violated in the Shariah State, penalties are those used for prisoners of war: death, slavery, release or ransom. (o9.14, o11.0-o11.11, Umdat al-salik).

 

First Amendment: Freedom of speech

 

Constitution: First Amendment: Congress shall not abridge “the freedom of speech.”

 

Shariah: Speech defaming Islam or Muhammad is considered “blasphemy” and is punishable by death or imprisonment.

 

First Amendment: Freedom to dissent

 

Constitution: First Amendment: “Congress cannot take away the right of the people “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

 

Shariah: Non-Muslims are not to harbor any hostility toward the Islamic state or give comfort to those who disagree with Islamic government.

 

Second Amendment: Right to self-defense

 

Constitution: Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

 

Shariah: Under historic and modern dhimmi laws, non-Muslims cannot possess swords, firearms or weapons of any kind.

 

Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Amendments: Right to due process and fair trial

 

Constitution: Fifth Amendment: “no person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime… without due process of law.” Sixth Amendment: guarantees a “public trial by an impartial jury.” Seventh Amendment: “the right of trial by jury shall be preserved.”

 

Shariah: Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari: Muhammad said, “No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir (infidel).” Non-Muslims are prohibited from testifying against Muslims. A woman’s testimony is equal to half of a man’s.

 

Eighth Amendment: No cruel and unusual punishment

 

Constitution: Eighth Amendment: “nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

 

Shariah: Under Shariah punishments are barbaric: “Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done – a deterrent from Allah.” Quran 5:38; A raped woman is punished: “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication – flog each of them with a hundred stripes” (Sura 24:2).

 

Fourteenth Amendment: Right to equal protection and due process

 

Constitution: Fourteenth Amendment: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. “

 

Shariah: Under dhimmi laws enforced in modern Shariah states, Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims before the law. Under Shariah law, women, girls, apostates, homosexuals and “blasphemers” are all denied equality under the law. Under Shariah law, women, girls, apostates, homosexuals and “blasphemers” are all denied equality under the law.

AND YET the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the city government of Tulsa, OK can violate the First Amendment Religious Freedom rights.

 

Here’s another thing I have a problem with. Although Tulsa changed the election law for candidates to run without a Political Party affiliation he has ran for all political Offices as a Republican. In Oklahoma if you are a Republican you are a Christian Right Conservative (even if you are a Roman Catholic). Instead of standing up for a Tulsa citizen who chose to not to attend a radicalized Mosque as the Islamic Society of Tulsa; Mayor Bartlett not only has not rebuked the TPD and its dhimmi Chief Chuck Jordan, Deputy Chief A. Daryl Webster and Major Julie Harris the Mayor did nothing to stop the Tulsa City response to being sued. I don’t care how you spin that but that means Mayor Bartlett is a supporter of the kind of Radical Islam that is spewed from the Islamic Society of Tulsa. If Dewey Bartlett runs for any Office as a Republican/Conservative – local, State or Federal – I will never vote for him!

 

Perhaps a deluge of electronic messages using the City of Tulsa contact page will let Mayor Dewey Bartlett may have a precarious political future in the State of Oklahoma by sending complaints. To use that contact page CLICK HERE.

 

On October 13 Jim Kouri wrote about the injustice being done to Captain Paul Fields at the Examiner.com. I was going to cross post it but I sense I ran out of space. Kouri gives an excellent synopsis of local government successfully abusing the First Amendment with the help of the U.S. Judiciary system. You should read Kouri’s article.

 

Since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) supported same-sex marriage by refusing to look at the Tenth Circuit Appellate Court’s recent ruling throwing out the voters of several States, I am not expecting too much constitutional Original Intent pertaining to Paul Fields. I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ that I am incorrect on that thought and that SCOTUS not only looks at Captain Fields’ violation of the First Amendment but rules in his favor.

Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law vs. U.S. Constitution and Culture


Sharia Erases Liberty toon

Leftist Race Baiting is America’s of Executing Blasphemy Law

John R. Houk

© October 1, 2014

 

Shamim Masih is providing a follow-up (scroll below my thoughts) on the rumors and status of the Christian Zafar Bhatti who has been convicted for committing blasphemy in Pakistan.

 

As Shamim Masih reported yesterday in his report “CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case, says Basharat Khokhar,” Pakistani Christian Zafar Bhatti has not been receiving the material and legal support publicized by the Pakistan Christian Civil Rights organization CLAAS. Regardless of the initial reported rumors, Bhatti is alive, unwounded but not well. This is the horrendous blasphemy Pakistan law that was supposedly committed and indeed convicted for (Sources on legal issues):

 

Zafar Bhatti is accused of blasphemy under Pakistan’s 295C blasphemy law. He was charged in July 2012, based on rumors that he insulted Muhammad’s mother in text messages. Zafar worked selling medicines, and he often went door-to-door with his presentation. He also used those opportunities to share Christ in the various homes, reading the Bible and praying with families. He also established a small NGO called “Jesus World Mission” [NGO link on Facebook] whose purpose was to assist the poor.

 

On July 11, 2012, he was accused by a fellow NGO worker of sending blasphemous text messages from a mobile phone that she had given him. Zafar and his wife left the village to avoid a massive riot. Police arrested him on July 26, charging him under 295c of the legal code, which are informally called the “blasphemy laws.”

 

In jail, Zafar has been beaten several times. Someone also tried to poison his food. Several of the Muslim prisoners pressure him, saying if he accepts Islam he will be forgiven. Zafar’s sister and wife are quite concerned for his well-being in prison as his case moves through the legal system. “Pray that God will help my brother stay strong in his faith,” said his sister. (Prisoner Alert: Zafar Bhatti; reposted from Persecution Blog [that link now dead]; Before It’s News; 9/4/13 12:32)

 

Once again, Pakistan’s blasphemy law has been used to bring unsubstantiated charges against members of religious minorities. Rev Zafar Bhatti, president of the Jesus World Mission, is in prison after he was accused of violating the ‘black law.’ Judges now must decide whether or not to heed the appeal made on his behalf and release him on bail. A Muslim leader said the Christian clergyman sent him text messages that insulted Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Catholic leaders and human rights activists have responded immediately, pleading for his innocence, noting that police has been subjected to pressures and that the case is vitiated by errors in law.

 

Rev Bhatti hails from Karachi, but moved to Lahore in 2010, in Nawaz Sharif Colony, where he has worked on behalf of local Christians and religions minorities for the past two years. On 10 July, he decided to move with his family to the capital Islamabad. The next day, Ahmed Khan, deputy Secretary of the local Jamat Ehl-e-Sunnat, unexpectedly filed a complaint against the Christian clergyman at the New Town police station, in Rawalpindi.

 

According to the police report, Khan received some text messages on his mobile phone with insulting language towards Muhammad’s mother from an unregistered but visible number, which he kept in the phone’s memory. At the police station, he said that if the agents did not open an investigation for blasphemy under article 295-C of the Penal Code, his organisation would take matters in its own hands.

 

 

Police arrested Rev Bhatti on 16 July and his sister-in-law Nasreen Bibi. In custody, the pastor was physically abused and tortured to extract a confession but he stood his ground, rejecting the accusation and insisting on his innocence.

 

 

“Zhaffar Bhatti is innocent,” said Khalid Jill, of APMA. “We are going to fight for his release.” In his view, police began a case against him under “pressure,” but we “are going to appeal because he was charged under the wrong article of the law.”

 

Mgr Rufin Anthony, bishop of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, is of the same opinion. “How can police be sure” about the offender’s identity? “It is clear that it is a case of personal animosity,” probably in connection with some land. (Christian leader falsely charged of blasphemy in Islamabad; By Jibran Khan; AsiaNews.it; 8/13/12)

 

Zafar is accused of sending blasphemous cell phone text messages to an Islamic cleric. Problem is, Zafar is illiterate and would have no way of knowing how to write a text message.

 

The Pakistan contact says Zafar survived an assassination attempt in prison March 31. Apparently poison was placed in his food, causing him to bleed from his nose and mouth.

 

Here’s a portion of the email sent to me about Pakistani Christian prisoner Zafar Bhatti:

 

“Muslim prisoners told him he would be forgiven (for the alleged blasphemy incident) if he accepted Islam. But he refused to accept Islam. Muslim prisoners are trying to kill him… and are saying they will tell jail authorities that he is using bad language about Prophet Mohammed. Zafar’s sister says ‘everyday Muslim prisoners come around Zafar and call him kafar (infidel) and use bad language against him and Christianity.’ They are giving him mental torture. Zafar’s life is in danger in jail.” (Pakistani Prisoner in Urgent Need of Prayer; By Gary Lane; Blogs CBN.comThe Global Lane; 7/17/13 11:43 AM)

 

Zaffar Bhatti was poisoned in Jail and suffered unsasnitory (sic) living conditions which affected his legs and body, yet he survived. And as he hailed the Name of Jesus loud and clear echoing in the prison cell walls, the prison inmates and the guards became astonished and asked what was that? They never heard how Christians hail the name of Jesus aloud. But since then, they have kept their silence and refrained from persecuting Zaffar Bhatti. https://www.facebook.com/notes/jesus-world-mission/zaffar-bhatti-wins-his-safety-in-jail-through-jesus-name/653922414625661 (Updates on Zaffar Bhatti: Chairman Jesus World Mission; By Ahsan Nabi Khan; Ahsan Nabi’s Blog; 9/20/13)

 

I want you to notice the large bulk of this information is NOT from any Mainstream Media sources. The irony is if you Google ‘Zafar Bhatti’ most Mainstream Media sources still have the rumors that he was killed in Adayla Prison awaiting execution for the absurd Blasphemy conviction.

 

The Christians on death row for Blasphemy convictions are growing all the time. To my knowledge no one has been executed as yet. On the other hand death row Christians are victims often victims of attempted murder or murder by guards and/or inmates. Zafar Bhatti is an example of the many Pakistani Christians that are relatively unknown in America because our media has opted not to report on the horrendous treatment of Christians in Pakistan unless it is a catastrophic event in which many Christians die.

 

Shamim Masih is openly soliciting donations for care of Zafar’s legal bills and for his family that also live constantly under the threat of Muslim mob violence or mob execution. If you read this and KNOW someone or some Organization that can offer some very needed support Zafar you can send money directly to Shamim Masih who was contacted by Zafar’s family to get the word out on the Christian Pastor’s precarious life and death situation. For Americans willing to step up, the best way is through Western Union. Here is the Shamim Masih contact information to send money via Western Union for Shamim to present to the Zafar Bhatti family:

 

For Americans especially, I have discovered the best way to donate to Shamim Masih is via Western Union sending this LINK to a Western Union agent in Islamabad. Include Shamim’s phone – +92-300-642-4560

 

By clicking “LINK” above Western Union will take you through the process of donating in U.S. Dollars in which Western Union converts to Rupees. Shamim’s phone is needed because that is how Western Union contacts Shamim to make him aware funds are available.

 

If you desire a tax deduction for your giving you need to find a reputable organization that has the proper U.S. Non-Profit tax status to that will contribute to the needs of Zafar Bhatti and his family.

 

OR try contacting Tahir Naveed Chaudhary the Chairman of the Pakistan Minorities Alliance (PMA) specifying on how to help Zafar Bhatti: HERE.

 

There is more donation methods toward Shamim Masih at the end of his update report posted after my thoughts entitled, “Zafar Bhatti blasphemy accused is perfectly fine, says his wife Nawab Bibi”.

 

Can you imagine the silliness of being convicted to a death sentence for voicing your opinion about Mohammed in a negative way? If such laws existed in the USA I would have been lynched long ago. As a Christian living in the land of Liberty I often condemn the theology of Islam directly from that so-called religion of peace’s own revered books such as the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The Quran is considered immutable even by devoted Muslims that call themselves Moderate. It is misleading that the Quran is not presented in a chronological order because there are basically two sides of a coin in the book. One side concentrating mostly form Mohammed’s home town of Mecca prior to fleeing are all about peace and toleration through Allah. The flip side of the coin are Mohammed’s words and actions in Medina which by Western standards are quite lecherous, greedy, brutal and intolerant. According to Islamic theology, especially as seen through the Sunni sect and Abrogation, the Medina portion of the Quran outweighs the Mecca portion when consulted on a theo-political jurisprudence matter. I do not have an irrational fear of Islam as the word ‘Islamophobia’ might indicate, rather I have a very rational dislike for the Islam that is very anti-Christian (ergo antichrist religion) and anti-Jewish (ergo antisemitic) in their holy writings. Thank God I have the right to expose the essence of Islam’s antichrist nature in America. Pakistan I probably wouldn’t make it to the court house before Christ-hating Islamic Supremacists murdered me for my beliefs as blasphemous to Mohammed, Allah and Islam in general.

 

Every charge of Blasphemy in Pakistan is an attack on Civil Rights issues taken for granted in the United States of America. We as Americans have the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (Bold text mine)

 

In America the Constitution is nearly holy writ for the American way of life. Hence Religious Freedom and Free Speech is protected even if individuals, people of devout faith, atheists or various political ideologies are offended. As Americans when a person or group of a divergent faith, no faith or political persuasion offends another American; the offended vents in written or peaceful protest form. Violent responses has become as heinous crimes in the minds of all Americans of faith, no faith, race, gender and politics. Now it is true peaceful protests have evolved into violence but this has occurred less and less in the USA since the 1960s. These days when violence does erupt it is almost never to do with religion or politics, rather when the perception of a minority race that their race has experienced a horrendous rupture in Civil Rights, the minority breaks out into violence. These days the majority population as a whole rarely if ever instigates violent protest over an incident. This was not the case during the 1960s and the very early 1970s in which the Civil Rights Movement was forcing the White majority to abandon long-time prejudices primarily against African-Americans (Black Community).

 

The Southern U.S. had been entrenched in the hostility toward Black Americans having the same Equal Rights as White Americans because of the former Black Slave status ended with the North (Union) victory over the South (Confederacy) States effectively ending the institution of slavery but not the White attitude toward former slaves. The 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution became the foundation to provide Equal Rights to American minorities even though the end of the slavery of Black Americans was the purpose. Those Amendments became ratified in 1865, 1868 and 1870 respectively. BUT full implementation was not forced upon the segregationist South and various non-South urban areas until the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. That is roughly 100 year variance between slavery emancipation and the enforcement of Civil Rights.

 

This is my point: other than some race baiting by certain politicians (coughPresident Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and more), Civil Rights violence has nearly ceased to exist. Regardless of the fact that discrimination does still exist it is not even close to the level that Black Americans experienced prior to the forced policies of the Civil Rights policies of the U.S. government in the 1960s and early 1970s.

 

As I was researching the limited sources I could access pertaining to Zafar Bhatti and his family I discovered that Zafar’s sister – Nasreen Bibi – experienced a tragedy at the hands of Muslims in 2010. Then 12 year old Shazia Bashir worked for a Muslim family as a domestic servant. When her parents were finally granted access to their daughter they found her tortured with cuts to her body of which Shazia eventually succumbed to in the hospital. At any rate forgive me for interjecting the U.S. Constitution be sure to read about Zafar Bhatti’s very urgent needs as reported by Shamim Masih.

Zafar Bhatti blasphemy accused is perfectly fine, says his wife Nawab Bibi

ISLAMABAD: Zafar Bhatti accused of blasphemy case confined in the Central Jail Adiala (or Adayla) Rawalpindi, is perfectly fine and fit, says his wife Nawab Bibi after visiting him in the jail on September 29, 2014. She is thankful to Tahir Naveed Chaudhary, Chairman Pakistan Minorities Alliance – PMA and Basharat Khokhar, Rights Activist for arranging their visit to Adayla Jail.

 

According to the details; there were rumors that Zafar Bhatti a victim of the 295-C [Blasphemy Law] imprisoned in Adayla Jail, was attacked after the attack of Muhammad [perhaps also Ali] Asghar, another blasphemy victim in the same premises. A police constable named Yousaf attacked Muhammad Asghar on September 25, 2014; he received a gunshot and was taken to the hospital and is still under treatment. Since then there were unverified reports [that Zafar was killed] and Zafar’s family was worried about him.

 

Early morning on 29th September, Tahir Naveed Chaudhary chairman PMA and Basharat Khokhar took Nawab Bibi and Nasreen Bibi and went to see Blasphemy victim Pastor Zafar Bhatti. They met Zafar in the jail and found him in good health. Tahir Naveed Chaudhary, who has been attorney to Rimsha (a minor girl, victim of blasphemy), said it was [his] first visit after the speculations and after the fact finding. We decided to take care of the family and the case as well. PMA has decided to provide assistance to the family and legal aid for the accused. Basharat Khokhar, a member [of] civil society, said that I voluntarily [provided] assist[ance] to the persecuted because I have faced the same charges. Human Rights champions work [assistance] as a business but I am passionate to save the beleaguered community.

 

Nawab Bibi, wife of the Zafar Bhatti, supported Basharat Khokhar and said that he [has] been helping us since the case is registered. Joseph Francis [of CLAAS] came to us and had a photo session, he also provided us assistance of Rs. 5000 twice, and she [had] answered when asked about the CLAAS assistance provision. Nasreen Bibi, sister of Zafar Bhatti, said he [i.e. Joseph Francis] is [the] least [to] bother solving the case and seems interested to prolong the case for his vested interest. That is the reason he uses delay tactics in the case. Both females showed their confidence on these gentlemen [i.e. Tahir Naveed Chaudhary and Basharat Khokhar].

 

The group came to my house after their meeting with Zafar Bhatti in the jail.

 

Persecution against religious minorities is very common in Pakistan. But it is observed that some Human Rights champions, without realizing the pain of the victims, play with the life of the poor Christian families.

In Support of Conservative Principles and Biblical Christianity


Ben Franklin praising Christian Morality quote

 

John R. Houk

© August 15, 2014

 

I have been having a discussion with a commenter on my NCCR blog. I had posted that discussion in portion under the title, “So who’s Full of Baloney?” As you can expect that discussion has continued in the comment section at the NCCR blog. We have both entered the realm of antagonism once in a while but for the most part the discussion has been civil. I have always assumed Bryan the commenter was a Leftist due to his way Left of Center defense. In his last comment he said he was neither a Leftist nor a Right Winger but read info and made his own decisions. I will probably get into trouble by trying to find a place on the political spectrum for a guy that puts up a stiff defense for Left Wing principle yet considers himself neither Left nor Right on that spectrum. So I won’t.

 

Anyway, Bryan posted a rather lengthy comment to a comment I made knocking a previous Bryan comment. Bryan’s most recent comment is an impressive evenhanded response to my comment. I am going to do you – the reader – a small disservice by not posting Bryan’s last comment. Bryan’s comment was posted on August 5th so I am a bit behind the curve in actually responding. As you read my most recent response you may feel the need to go to Bryan’s comment to read exactly what I am responding to. HERE is the link to Bryan’s most recent comment as of this post if you choose to read.

 

Thus begins my response:

 

Bryan I appreciate the civility of this last comment. The only thing I can get behind 100% is the concept of the Free Choice and the 1st Amendment. As you can guess there are some nuances that I can never agree with.

 

Leftists, Atheists and perhaps centrists that interpret the 1st Amendment as the Freedom from religion in the sense of Christian Morality is flawed. And you can realize why from our exchanges. On the other hand I absolutely support one practicing any faith that does not run contrary to the American-style of the rule of law and I absolutely support a non-religious life if so chosen. What I cannot support is for Leftists, Atheists, Centrists or non-Christian faiths forcing the practice of Christianity out of the public forum. That was never the Original Intent of the Constitution. Rather the Original Intent was to make the rule of Law to not force anyone practice a particular form of Christianity and I’ll accept by extension to not force anyone to practice any form of religion or atheism. However, unconstitutional Separation of Church and State enthusiasts force Christians NOT to practice their faith quite forcefully under the false that practicing faith forces the non-faithful to practice a religion or ideology that is against another’s faith or lack thereof.

 

The Original Intent of the First Amendment was to offer anyone to practice their faith even in a public forum without restrictions than with restrictive prohibitions. The government is not endorsing any religion because the public forum allows one to freely practice like-minded religious principles. After all there is a certain universality on the foundations of Christian between all the Denominations of Protestants (incidentally the Original thinking of the Founding Fathers), Roman Catholics and Eastern Rite Christianity. Hence a prayer by a football team or a city council will probably have more broad agreement than hostile disagreement. If an atheist chooses not to pray – so be it. If a non-Christian in attendance wishes to pray according their own faith – so be it. Don’t force a culture in which Christians cannot pray just because taxpayer money might be paying for a Public School Football team or Field or pays for the meeting room of a City Council et al. That is breaking religious freedom more than the fallacy of allowing prayer establishes a national Church. The 1st Amendment prohibits the government from establishing a national Church (Original Intent) and by extension any national religion.

 

The case for or against abortion is argued as a woman’s free choice with their own body or against the personal life of the unborn baby in a woman’s womb. For a Biblical Christian calling an unborn baby a body extension with philosophically sanitized word of “fetus” is just smoke and mirrors to people of faith.

 

The increasing (and unfortunate) success of homosexual activists changing the minds of a huge chunk of American voters does not make the homosexual lifestyle any more acceptable to Biblical Christians. Yet homosexual activists have successfully used the legal system to force Biblical Christians to make wedding cakes for same-sex weddings, restricted Biblical Christian clubs or associations in Public Schools or Public Colleges from forming while allowing homosexual clubs and associations to prosper. This is a restriction of 1st Amendment religious freedom to accommodate a fairly recent acceptance of homosexuality. Indeed a Biblical Christian is now vilified as a bigot for demanding their religious freedom on a campus while a homosexual club or association gleefully mocks the Biblical Christians because they are restricted and the homosexuals freely practice a lifestyle Biblical Christians find abhorrent.

 

The one complaint you have that indicts me is my attitude toward Islam. I have a huge problem with Islam as a religion and Muslims that support Salafist (i.e. purest) Islam or even Muslims that might consider themselves moderate yet support Islamic terrorist like Hamas that are dedicated to killing Jews, Christians and Americans. I actually sway back and forth between Dajjal’s solution for Muslims who hate and the Christian principles of forgiveness and mercy. It depends on the Muslim atrocity, the Muslim self-justification or the Muslim lie of the day versus how much time I have spent in meditation in the Holy Scriptures. This inner struggle between ending Muslim hate and the patience of Jesus is constant. Perhaps you can be the conscience of the day once in a while that isn’t quite antagonistic.

 

Bryan I am certain I probably did not respond to all your concerns but I have run out of gas. I think you get the idea of my frustration with Leftist, Atheist and Centrist complainers of the practice of Free Market principles and Biblical Christianity. I am also certain your principles are no more tolerant of my Biblical Christian Conservative ideology than I would be with yours.

The Truth about Separation of Church and State


1st Amendment

 

I have been several parts of a series entitled Disputing Separation Church/State (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6). As of this writing I am up to Part Six and there is more to come. In doing the reading for these posts I came across a PDF designed as a brochure to dispute the Leftist influence that has move American Courts to stretch the interpretation of the First Amendment beyond the scope of its original intent. As I said I am still continuing my series on the subject; however below is an excellent to the point and relatively brief synopsis of reasons the present exploitation of the rule of law pertaining to the separation of Church and State is not a legal concept in the U.S. Constitution.

******************************

The Truth about Separation of Church and State

Contrary to popular opinion, the term “separation of church and state” is found nowhere in the United States Constitution.

 

From PDF Brochure:

Alliance Defending Freedom

 

While the First Amendment clearly forbids the creation of a national denomination, it says nothing about the so-called “separation of church and state.”

 

§  The term “separation of church and state” was first used by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptists in 1801, when he responded to their concerns about state involvement in religion. Jefferson’s letter had nothing to say about limiting public religious expression, but dealt with government’s interference in the public expression of faith.

 

 

§  It was U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black who first inserted the term “separation of church and state” into American jurisprudence in his majority opinion of Everson v. Board of Education (1947). He wrote: “The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. The wall must be kept high and impregnable. We could not approve the slightest breach.”

 

 

§  Black’s opinion was based on a previous misreading of Jefferson’s 1801 letter in the U.S. Supreme Court decision Reynolds v. United States (1878). Black also confused his history. In the opinion, he wrote that the Danbury letter was “almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the First Amendment.”

 

 

§  The First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion; or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” No mention is made of a “wall between church and state.”

 

 

§  The true purpose of the First Amendment was to prohibit the federal government from establishing a national church, like the Church of England, or require that sectarian policy be forced on an individual state or on the federal government. While the amendment does recognize a “differentiation between church and the government, it does not mean that they could not cooperate with each other.”

 

 

§  In 2001, Daniel Dreisbach, Associate Professor of Justice, Law and Society at American University, wrote that Black was wrong to apply the term “separation of church and state” to the First Amendment. The danger of Black’s argument, according to Dreisbach, is that it gives constitutional reasons to “separate religion, religious values, and religious organizations from public life.” He continues: “If we can’t talk about religion in any meaningful way in public schools, religious citizens can’t communicate their faith in public life. [The public square] must be ‘sanitized’ of religious messages, and we are left with a strictly secular public life.”

 

 

§  The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and its allies, along with other groups hostile to religious freedom, have used Black’s wording to:

 

o   Deny churches the right to rent public school facilities for Sunday worship services.

 

o   Have public displays of the Ten Commandments removed from public buildings.

 

o   Prohibit students from praying at graduation ceremonies or football games.

 

o   Threaten fixed income housing project residents with eviction for displaying signs about prayer in their apartment windows.

 

o   Tell an eight-year-old girl that she cannot pass out handmade Valentines that read “Jesus Loves You.”

 

o   Tell pastors that they do not have the right to speak freely from their pulpits applying Scripture and church teaching to candidates and elections.

 

 

§  In 2005, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, in ruling in favor of a public display of the Ten Commandments, wrote: “The ACLU’s argument contains…fundamental flaws… [It] makes repeated reference to ‘the separation of church and state.’ This extra-constitutional construct has grown tiresome. The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state.”

 

 

For almost four decades, the ACLU’s distortion of the “separation of church and state” went nearly unchallenged. Since 1994, Alliance Defending Freedom has taken the ACLU and its allies head-on to expose this distortion and restore the original intent of U.S. Constitution with regard to religious freedom. Since its inception, Alliance Defending Freedom has helped to win many groundbreaking cases in defense of religious freedom and expression. The result is that the so-called “wall of separation,” erected by Hugo Black and others, is slowly starting to crumble. With your prayers and support, Alliance Defending Freedom will continue to tear down the “wall of separation.”

Disputing Separation Church/State Part 5


G. Washington- Rightly Govern only by God & Bible

John R. Houk
© March 26, 2014
 
Here we go continuing to refute Dougindeap’s false belief the Church/State separation is as much a part of the Constitution as are the separation branch powers and checks and balances.
 
Similarly, they [i.e. the Founding Fathers] did not merely say there should be separation of church and state; rather, they actually separated them by … (2) according that government limited, enumerated powers, (3) saying nothing to connect that government to god(s) or religion, (4) saying nothing to give that government power over matters of god(s) or religion, and (5), indeed, saying nothing substantive about god(s) or religion at all except in a provision precluding any religious test for public office. (Dougindeap from: The Commonality between Leftist Paradigms & Scientific Theories; SlantRight 2.0; 3/13/14)
 
Dougindeap’s point two is vaguely cryptic. What in the world does he mean by “… they actually separated them by … (2) according that government limited, enumerated powers”?
 
An accurate statement might be seen in a rearrangement of the word order of the Dougindeap quote. How about something like:
 
The Founding Fathers separated powers (since power resides in the government that being separated must refer to the constitutionally defined Branches] by (2) according limiting government by enumerated the Branch powers.
 
This reordering of wording is a point I can get on board with because is a bit more clarity to extract an understanding. The Founding Fathers intent with the Constitution was to limit government in the context of affecting personal Liberty of American citizens. The object of employing checks and balances between the Branches was so that no single Branch could achieve despotic unchecked power over the government and hence over Americans promised Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as a way of life.
 
Government was to be limited to enforcing the rule of law that should be designed for the general welfare according to the moral of Nature’s God – the Creator – Who has placed the measuring stick for what is right and wrong for a good society.
 
I have established in Part Two that the Original Intent of the phrase of “general welfare” of the Constitution’s Preamble was in relation to the framing of Nature by Nature’s God the Creator. I quoted the Father of our Nation George Washington followed by an observation:
 

“No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts in the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. — Every step, by which they have been advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.”
George Washington (Quote found, “SEVENPRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY: I LIBERTY IS OF DIVINE ORIGIN; By J. David Gowdy; Institute for American Liberty; Copyright © 1996)
 
As far as Liberty is concerned the Founding Fathers in the majority that religion (meaning Christianity in the 1780s) was essential for a virtuous and moral society to remain cohesive in the practice of Liberty or chaos will ensue that will only despotic rule could quell. (Disputing Separation Church/State Part 2)
 
The should and must recognize that this provides a context for the First Amendment that Justice Hugo Black must have willfully ignored in the majority decision of Everson v. Board of Education in 1947 which ONLY THEN not only upheld the intent of keeping government out of religion BUT ALSO extra-constitutionally added that religion must not have any contact with a taxpayer supported government operation on a Local, State and Federal basis.
 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (Bold Emphasis Mine First Amendment)
 
There is no place in the First Amendment that enumerates that Christianity should not be the moral basis for the rule of law foundation in the U.S. Constitution. That which is enumerated is that Congress – the vehicle for legislating law and establishing a government budget – MUST not make any laws establishing an established religion (meaning in the 1780s the Christian Church). And the First Amendment specifically enumerates that Congress shall prohibit the “free exercise” of religion (AGAIN meaning the Christian Church in the 1780s).
 
ERGO Dougindeap is wrong that the Founding Fathers created a Constitutional paradigm of Separation of Church and State in the sense that American practicing Christians must keep their faith out of the government. In relation to the State the only enumeration of power separation is that the government must stay out of the worship business of the Church in not establishing the preeminence of one Denomination over another Denomination whether that be Protestant, Catholic and by extension the Eastern Orthodox Churches that were not common in the USA in the 1780s and 1790s.

Obama’s DoD v The Constitution


I am a huge fan of The Patriot Post and Mark Alexander. Indeed, I have a Patriot Post banner on my SlantRight 2.0 blog in which you can click to receive a free subscription of the online magazine in your inbox.

 

On Wednesday Alexander posted an exposé of the United States Air Force Academy’s persecution of religious freedom in which points a finger at guess who for officially instituting such a policy? If you are a Conservative you KNOW it was the America’s own Marxist-in-Chief President Barack Hussein Obama. The atheist tool needling Obama’s military policy at the Air Force Academy (AFA) is Mikey Weinstein.

 

I am cross posting Mark Alexander’s essay below in its entirety. Interspersed throughout the essay are “Comment” and “Share” links which I am leaving intact. Feel free to utilize them but note the links are under the auspices of The Patriot Post and not my blog.

Obama’s DoD v The Constitution

Suppressing 1st Amendment Religious Expression in the Air Force

 

By Mark Alexander 

Mar. 19, 2014

The Patriot Post

“God who gave us life gave us Liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” –Thomas Jefferson (1774)

 

 

Yet another case of BO’s D-O-D v G-O-D…

 

During the rancorous debates that preceded passage of the 2014 DefenseUSAFA Free Thinkers ad - Ask an Atheist Day budget – the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 – one of the proposed amendments was designed to protect the First Amendment rights of members of the Armed Services.

 

The NDAA as signed by Barack Hussein Obama in December of 2013 included an amendment based on the protective rights language proposed by Rep. John Calvin Fleming (R-LA). Regarding that amendment, Fleming noted: “The conscience rights of our men and women in uniform and their chaplains must be protected. While existing protections have focused on their beliefs, my amendment will extend that protection to the liberty granted by the U.S. Constitution, namely the freedom to exercise those beliefs in speech and actions. This amendment is aimed at stopping the unjust threats and reprimands against service members who have been speaking or acting in accord with their deeply held beliefs, while ensuring that military necessity and readiness are not compromised.”

 

Indeed, Section 532 of the NDAA, the “Enhancement of protection of rights of conscience of members of the Armed Forces and chaplains of such members,” was implemented as a first step toward achieving that goal.

 

Last week, however, the Air Force Academy, with a little help from perennial atheist agitator Mikey Weinstein, tested the protection of those rights. Recall that Weinstein heads the “Military Religious Freedom Foundation,” or what would be more aptly named the “Military Freedom From Religion Foundation.” (Other Service Academies are not burdened with Weinstein because he has made the AFA his testing ground for atheist challenges.)

 

One of Weinstein’s resident cadre of campus atheists complained to the Academy’s Superintendent, Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson, about a Bible verse posted on a Cadet’s dorm door whiteboard: “I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me…” (Gal. 2:20) Those erasable whiteboards are on all Cadet doors, and they are used for personal messages and statements. There is no AFA restriction on what can be posted on them, and Cadets have a respectful understanding of what might be offensive to others – which most assuredly should not include a Bible verse.

That notwithstanding, it was promptly “suggested” to the Cadet that he remove the Bible verse, even though such posts are common.

 

Johnson claimed in an official statement, “The scripture [on the Cadet’s door] could cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality.”

 

Really?

 

On Tuesday of this week, a Cadet with the same leadership rank and position in his squadron as the Cadet who posted the Bible verse on his dorm door, invited the entire Cadet Wing, both in a public announcement to the Wing assembled and by official AFA email, to the “Ask and Atheist Day” event. The event flyer was advertised all week on Academy bulletin screens.

 

So, are we to believe then that promoting atheism to the entire Cadet Wing through official channels does not raise doubts about “the leader’s religious impartiality”?

 

The Cadets who contacted me about the atheist event indicated that they were not objecting to the promotion of that event, but to the hypocrisy of that promotion, versus a fellow Cadet being asked to remove a Bible verse from his door. Obviously, only the Christian expression of faith is the target of AFA discrimination, and it is Johnson’s “religious impartiality” which should be in contention.

 

AFA Cadet White Boards with Scriptures

 

Of note, Johnson’s press release stated, “While we swear an oath to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States, Airmen are also bound by [Air Force Instruction 1-1].” (Shouldn’t that read “Airpersons”?) Instruction 1-1 is a regulation put into place in 2009 by Obama’s DoD administrators to suppress religious speech.

 

Johnson’s reference to “swear an oath” is ironic, given that, as The Patriot Post first reported last year, somebody at the AFA removed the words “So Help Me God” from the Officer and Enlisted Oaths in the AFA’s official handbook. Those words were removed in 2010 and are still AWOL from the current handbook – in violation of federal statutes and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

 

My column, “End Run on ‘So Help Me God’,” details this omission, and the matter is now the subject of a Freedom of Information Act inquiry to determine who removed those words and why. (I bet Mikey Weinstein’s name pops up.) Suffice it to say that removing “So Help Me God” from official oaths is a far more egregious offense than the current dispute over the Bible verse, but both fall into the same category of faith suppression. However, we may never get an answer given that “the most transparent administration” has stonewalled far more FOIA requests than any other administration.

Regarding the whiteboard Bible verse, Weinstein told Fox News that it “clearly elevated [fundamentalist Christianity] over all others at an already virulently hyper-fundamentalist Christian institution.” He added, “It massively poured fundamentalist Christian gasoline on an already raging out-of-control conflagration of fundamentalist Christian tyranny, exceptionalism and supremacy at USAFA. You cannot put a picture in front of your room of a white person whipping a black person. You can’t put a picture of anything that’s denigrating outside your room.”

 

Got that? Posting a passage from the Bible on one’s personal whiteboard is akin to posting a picture “of a white person whipping a black person.” (Shades of Joseph Goebbels in Weinstein’s über -hyperbolic rhetoric.)

 

Former spec ops commander Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin (USA Ret.) says, “The very troops who defend our religious freedom are at risk of having their own taken away. The worst thing we can do is to stop Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, especially the chaplains, from the free exercise of their faith. … If a scripture scares [the AFA administrators] this much, then [some of those they are training] may not be very effective when confronted by a committed enemy who is willing to die for his or her beliefs. This academy should be training warriors. Scripture is hardly a threat.”

 

 

The AFA’s leadership malfeasance spilled over into Air Force budgetA.F. Secretary Deborah Lee James & A.F. Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh testimony before Congress last Friday, with both Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James and Air Force Chief of Staff General Mark Welsh being asked for a detailed explanation of why the AFA is suppressing religious expression. Reps. Doug Lamborn (R-CO), Joe Wilson (R-SC), Michael Turner (R-OH), Mike McIntyre (D-NC) and Randy Forbes (R-VA) pressed for answers.

 

Lamborn noted, “The Air Force Academy is in my district, and … I’m very disturbed by what happened with this Cadet. I think it’s a suppression of religious rights.” He has written a letter of protest to Johnson, noting, “We are asking future officers to perhaps give even their very lives to protect and defend the Constitution and yet denying them rights from that same Constitution.”

 

As Forbes put it to Sec. James, “Can you imagine a young Cadet when he’s forced with the entire chain of command coming in there and telling him basically this is inappropriate?” He objected further, “Perhaps most offensive, the Air Force said this was a teaching moment, that the Cadet’s action of putting the Bible verse on [the whiteboard] was inappropriate based on leadership principles.”

 

Forbes then asked Gen. Welsh, “What other inspirational quotes have Cadets been forced to remove from their personal whiteboards other than verses from the Bible?”

 

Welsh insisted the “single biggest frustration I’ve had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution in the United States Air Force.” He added, “We remove hundreds of quotes from those boards. … You have to get the facts right on every one of these cases.”

 

Now, I’ve met Gen. Welsh, and I found him to be in possession of strong character and leadership qualities – and a devoted Christian. But if he’s been told that the AFA has removed “hundreds of quotes from those boards,” I for one would like to see the evidence of those removals, preferably without issuing another FOIA request. According to a response I received from Gen. Welsh regarding the issue of “So Help Me God” being removed from the AFA’s official handbook, he was told that was “a printing error on a wall calendar,” not an obvious omission from the handbook.

 

Memo to Gen. Welsh: You can’t “get the facts right” if somebody at the AFA is feeding you misinformation.

So what now?

 

To ratchet up the stakes, some AFA Cadets are standing their ground in protest by posting this offensive note on their door whiteboards: “IN GOD WE TRUST”. By “offensive,” I mean an offensive strategic move to challenge the culture of religious suppression at the AFA. (The Patriot Post is offering 4″x6″ stickers with our flag over the words “IN GOD WE TRUST” free of charge to Cadets at any service academy. E-mail GodTrust@PatriotPost.US to inquire about obtaining quantities of these stickers.)

 

US Flag - In God We Trust

 

Of course, Mikey Weinstein is furious: “This is an absolutely horrible, shameful disgrace. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an open rebellion like this happening at any military academy. It’s like they’re sticking their middle finger up at what the academy did.”

 

Will AFA Superintendent Johnson demand our National Motto be removed from her Cadets’ doors?

 

If so, a religious Liberty coalition, including the Family Research Council, the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Liberty Counsel, the Liberty Institute and the Thomas More Law Center, announced they will provide legal defense for any Cadet brought up on charges.

 

Liberty Institute attorney Mike Berry believes the AFA actions are a direct violation of Section 532 of the NDAA as noted previously, saying, “If the Cadet didn’t violate any rules, then why was the quote removed? … This is not only morally wrong, it’s illegal. … We met with Col. Paul Barzler, the Air Force Academy Staff Judge Advocate [and] pointed out that under the Constitution, federal law, and military regulations, Cadets have the right to religious exercise. I was shocked when he responded that [according to Obama’s DoD policy] the term ‘religious exercise’ does not include written or verbal speech.”

 

Personally, I’m not sure why anyone would be shocked at any directive from the Obama administration.

 

Under the pretense of “religious tolerance,” Obama’s administration has been advancing his mandate to remove all expressions of faith from government forums. This eradication serves the Left’s strategic objective of replacing Rule of Law with the rule of men – because the former is predicated on the principle of Liberty “endowed by our Creator,” while the latter asserts that Liberty is the gift of government.

 

Stand your ground, Cadets!

Are YOU a Bigot if YOU Hate Islam?


Mahdi Antichrist

John R. Houk

© November 25, 2013

 

Here come the accusations of hater and bigot.

 

Islam is an evil religion. Its adherents love to call their faith the religion of peace. That is a bit of a deceptive moniker. There are a lot of Quranic suras that indeed extol peace and family; however an equal or greater amount of Islamic theology extols violence to those who refuse to submit to allah or to those who insult allah and the antichrist prophet Mohammed. The verbal anger in the newest suras of the Quran reflect Mohammed’s frustration of being rejected as a prophet by Jews and Christians. The rejection is easy to understand. Mohammed goes from calling the People of the Book (i.e. the Torah and Bible) as people to be respected as receiving – cough – allah’s revelations first to calling Jews and Christians as evil twisted deceivers of allah’s word who corrupted scripture ensuring their place in hell. So if you happen to see a Jew hiding then kill’em.

 

And so although I believe those who call themselves Muslims may be decent and upright in character kind-of-people, their theology when honored as pure is evil toward non-Muslims (aka kafir).

 

As an American devoted to the Freedom and Rights inherent in the First Amendment I have struggled with Islam as being a religion that should be freely practiced in the USA.

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (Bold Emphasis Mine - 1st Amendment to U.S. Constitution)

 

Americans are guaranteed to not have an established religion by the government AND Americans are guaranteed that the government will not prohibit the free exercise of religion. So how do Constitutional honoring Americans who are not Muslims deal with a religion in which a part of its theology is to transform the social-political nature of nature by force if necessary. In other words a devoted Muslim would not be off base towards his faith to fight against the U.S. Constitution as the basis for the rule of law by changing the legal foundation to Sharia Law. Sharia Law stands against everything the U.S. Constitution stands and in particular Sharia Law is a contradiction to the Constitution’s Bill of Rights (Amendments 1 – 10).

 

In Islam there is no Religious Freedom because Islam is supreme and the non-Muslim is an insult.

 

In Islam there is no Free Speech because if Islam, its deity allah and/or its prophet Mohammed are insulted punishment must follow up to and including the death penalty.

 

In Islam Non-Muslims cannot assemble peaceably especially to worship their faith openly because that would be an insult to the supremacy of Islam – punishment will follow.

 

If non-Muslims petition the government with a grievance that might be contrary to Sharia Law it would be considered an effrontery to Islam – punishment will follow.

 

AND this just addresses the First Amendment!

 

Islam is a religion that is beyond an individual seeking the spiritual answers to that which is divine. Islam is an ideological-political religion that absolutely demands the government to enforce the precepts of Islam as derived from the Quran, Hadith and Sira (Sunna). When you here a Muslim inform you that their Quran claims there is no compulsion of religion in Islam – it is a deception. If one chooses to retain their non-Muslim faith and are lucky enough to be a member of the People of the Book, you are not compelled to convert to Islam. The deception is – especially in a Muslim dominated nation – your life is made a living hell of humiliation and religious taxation that only the most ardent non-Muslims choose not to convert. That is how the Christian Middle East and North Africa changed from a Christian majority into a Muslim majority. Converting to Islam removed 2nd class humiliation status to the Muslim family of the Umma. So always remember the ‘Islam is Peace’ and ‘there is no compulsion of religion in Islam’ are deceptions meant to entice the kafir to enter Islam.

 

It is thus my opinion that Islam that adheres to a purist belief – i.e. an original loyalty to the early meanings of Islamic theology – should be banned in America as not a religion but as a political element dedicated to the overthrow of the U.S. Constitution. Frankly such a reform for Muslim-Americans is something they will not stomach. Just as Christians are taught the Bible is Holy and Jews are taught the Torah is Holy, Muslims are taught that the Quran is the irrefutable word of allah (what they call god). The difference for Jews and Christians is that our theology tells to submit to the ruling authorities as appointed by God even if they are heathen because the political authority is the instrument that administers right over wrong in society. If you do no wrong then there should be a peaceful life. Contrarily Islamic theology is to fight the kafir until they submit or fool the kafir until the Ummah is strong enough to force kafir to submit. Jews and Christians pray for peace. Muslims force submission to enfranchise an Islamic Supremacist peace. The Islamic political nature is contrary to the U.S. Constitution.

 

So I advocate a ban on any Islamic theology that is politically motivated to utilize violence to achieve the ends of destroying the U.S. Constitution. This is where the hater and bigot accusations should really begin to fly.

 

There is an essence of truth to the accusations. As a Christian I can say without any remorse that Islam is an antichrist religion. Islam denies the Sonship and Godhood of Jesus Christ. The New Testament specifically tells Christians that such a belief is an antichrist spirit. HOWEVER, the New Testament also teaches us to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute you.  So I can confidently say I hate Islam the theo-political religion but I pray for the peace and Salvation of all Muslim adherents.

 

Allow me to briefly switch gears on you. I have a different perspective on Jews. In Christian history Jews have often been vilified as Christ-Killers. Merely that sentiment alone would make Judaism an antichrist religion. HOWEVER, Christians forget that Christ came first to the lost sheep of Israel. At the Resurrection the disciples wondered if this was the time that Israel would be restored the Lord Jesus told them to the effect not yet and then gave last instructions to go into all the world witness of Jesus Christ first to “…Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Matt. 28: 18-20; Mk.16: 15-16; Acts 1: 6-8). The ONLY Christians when Jesus spoke to his disciples were indeed Jews. God’s Promises are to the Jews. Salvation is of the Jews. When non-Jews receive Christ Jesus they are engrafted (NOT REPLACING) into God’s Promises to the Jews. It is my unlearned opinion that although the majority of Jews reject Christ’s Messiahship now, there will be a time when they embrace Jesus. Remember the Twelve Apostles did not immediately believe Jesus Christ arose from the dead and the Apostle Thomas was the last hold-out in that non-belief. I believe the Jews of today are the modern doubting Thomases that will believe when they see the return of King Jesus. So I honor Jews as the Chosen People rather than as Christ-killers.

 

Now what was it that got me thinking about Islam and the U.S. Constitution and First Amendment Religious Freedom?

 

I subscribe to Sharia Unveiled. One of my favorite blogs has come across some information that the nation of Angola (western neighbor of Congo, Zambia & Namibia) has banned Islam from being legal. The government has even taken the step of destroying Mosques in Angola. Now it being Africa I suspect this will not be a non-violent situation in Angola.

 

The Angola government has had a Marxist-Leninist domination from about the 1970s. Apparently Angola place a new Constitution in 1991 and again 2002 that changed the government into a multiparty system; however elections seem plagued by corruption. The (Marxist) Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) has been the primary power holder since Angolan independence from Portugal in 1975. There had been an Angolan civil war off and on especially in the old Cold War days of the USSR vs. USA. As the word “Marxist” implies the Communism á la Marxist-Leninism was the dominant rule of law factor in Angola. Meaning not friendly to religion. Apparently after 2002 (and beyond) the still dominant MPLA eased up religious intolerance under an official democratic socialism rather than a Marxist dictatorship. However the way the Angolan Constitution is framed almost absolute power is vested into the Office of President. The President is chosen by the majority party in Parliament.

 

The power structure is important to understand the ability of the government to move against the Muslim minority of Angola. The Marxist influence the quarter century inspired the Angolan government to move against the legality of Islam when it determined that al Qaeda began using its influence among the 80-90 thousand Muslims via NGOs. So in Angola Islam is illegal to keep Radical Islam out. The only problem I have with this Angolan move is that if the government reverts back to an anti-religion policy that would include the shutdown of all religions in the despotic nation.

The fight against Islam does not seem to be exclusive to westerners.  According to the African press, Angola is determined to eradicate Islam from its territory.

 

Thus Muslims Luanda saw their mosque being destroyed.  The municipality of the town was radically breaking the only mosque in the city. Just days later, this is the Mosque of Viana was reduced to dust.

 

VIDEO: Angola Bans Islam and Shuts Down All Mosques

 

To excuse these unjust acts, the governor of the city said that the government of the country was not ready to legalize the construction of mosques. Similarly, earlier this week, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said: “With regard to Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Man, their mosques will be closed until further notice. ”

 

Now the main task of the Angolan government would destroy all the mosques located in the country because their status is considered “illegal”. This “illegal” status is further enhanced by the fact that the Muslim religion is considered contrary to the customs and the habits of the country. Therefore, leaders want the ban at all costs.

 

Although the proportion of Muslims is small, it prevents our Angolan brothers are suffering from this anti-Islam political regime. Allah assists and facilitates the Hijra!

 

A report has been issued stating the following:

 

“The legalisation of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and] their mosques will be closed until further notice,” said minister of culture Rosa Cruz e Silva.

 

The minister called Islam a “sect” which would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture.

 

Following the ban, there were unconfirmed reports that mosques across the vast southern African nation were being destroyed.

 

“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President Jose Edurado dos Santos told the Osun Defence daily.

 

Muslims account for less than 1% of the population of 19 million, while more than half of this former Portuguese colony subscribe to Christianity.

 

Clashes between the two communities are frequently reported in the local media. Muslims, many of whom migrated from west Africa and Lebanon, often face hostility from lawmakers in Angola.

 

Along with Islam, 194 other “sects” have been outlawed.

 

“Besides these, there is a long list of more than 1,000 applications to be authorised,” said Silva.

The Season is Emerging to Battle Against Christianity


Birth of Christ - Nativity Scene

John R. Houk

© October 12, 2013

 

There has been an open war by Leftists and atheists on Christianity for some time in the USA. Thanks to Madalyn Murray O’Hair (focus on Communist Connection), the Supreme Court reinterpreted the Establishment (or is it Disestablishment [Full PDF of link]) Clause of the First Amendment to go beyond preventing the government from establishing a State Church but to include that anything representative of taxpayer money must exclude Christianity. The annual Christmas period of the year is when this war on Christianity seems to rear up on a national basis in the media. Hence the war on Christianity becomes the war on Christmas.

 

Too many Corporations (AFA 2012 Naughty or Nice List) operate stores that have fallen prey to the concept that it is politically incorrect to promote Christmas because it promotes Christianity. AND any promotion of Christianity might be offensive to a minority of people in the USA that would prefer to distant themselves from any open association with Christianity; e.g. atheists, Muslims, Jews and perhaps other identifiable anti/non-Christian entities. This PC marketing is idiotic and an insult to the majority of Americans that relish the Christmas season as a time of giving, compassion and just a downright period of joy. I mean Americans who are not particularly religiously observant of the Christian faith still make this a time of family get together and enjoy an interruption from the daily tasks of the old J-O-B.

 

Corporations do have a Constitutional right to utilize whatever marketing strategy they deem fit; however as a Christian I find it nauseating when Christianity is the focus of diminishment to accommodate some foolish PC concept of multicultural diversity. Even more nauseating though is when Leftists and atheists impose their sanitized and/or ungodly beliefs on those that embrace Christianity via the taxpayer support Public venues. The imposition is exacted by using “Living Constitution” (Constitutionalist Criticism) parameters rather than “Original Intent” (In support of Original IntentNeutral Explanation) parameters in the Constitution to make sure the bedrock of America’s morality is not supported whatsoever. The result of this legal ploy of redefining the meaning of the Constitution has successfully turned America into which families are divided, single parent families are as common as heterosexual families, homosexuals are allowed to raise children further warping the societal fabric and a host of other deviations I am certain you can think of that escape my memory as of this writing.

 

The result of this moral dilution in America’s family unit has led to a society in which public dishonesty overrules the decency of honesty, children need protected on their routes to and from school, armed guards are becoming common place on Public School grounds, children bring weapons to harm others singularly or on a multiple basis, children are told they cannot play traditional play acting any longer (such as cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, etc.) because imaginary weapons may inspire real weapons, childhood aggression is increasingly common (such as bullying – physical or cyber), underage children – most often teenagers – are increasingly enabled on a parental level to participate in rabble-rousing partying that includes drinking, sex, property destruction, drugs, teen pregnancy and MORE.

 

These societal behaviors are a direct result of the Leftist and atheistic assault to prevent Christianity from being an integral part of American Culture in the name of Multicultural Diversity.

 

The first anti-Christmas story I heard this was a Public School imposing restrictions on an annual High School Christmas Carol Concert due to concerns of a phrase that is found NO WHERE in the Constitution called Separation of Church and State. Here is a good synopsis of how this anti-Christmas story developed:

 

The state of Wisconsin once again sits center stage in the War on Christmas. The Wausau School District has issued an edict about Christmas music that has caused several school associated music groups to either disband or cancel December performances.

 

Phil Buch, who has directed Wausau West High School’s choral programs since 1981, said the decision to halt rehearsals for the Master Singers was made after a meeting Thursday with district officials and Frank Sutherland, an attorney who represents the school district.

 

Buch said district administrators gave music educators at Wausau schools three options for December concerts, which typically contain a significant amount of religious music: choose five secular, or non-religious, songs for each religious song performed; hold a concert and have no holiday music whatsoever; or postpone any concerts in December. Because the 20-member Master Singers group is invited to sing at nearly a dozen holiday concerts each year, Buch said, those options were unacceptable.

 

“This group sings at Christmas programs,” Buch said. “We sing for nursing homes, grade schools, businesses. To do that without Christmas music doesn’t make sense.”

 

District administrators did not return calls Friday seeking information about the rules, but Wausau School Board President Michelle Schaefer said the change in direction stems from legal concerns over the amount of religious music performed in the schools. The decision will not eliminate religious music altogether but will give teachers a better idea as to how much religious music is “too much,” Schaefer said.

 

“From a School Board perspective, we look for music that is balanced,” Schaefer said. “Yes, we are a predominantly Christian society, but we are also a society of many faiths, and we want to respect that.”

 

(Wisconsin School District Cancels Christmas; By Editor; Defend Christmas; 10/6/13)

 

I actually first heard this story on Fox News but the below story is an excellent synopsis. This first shot over the bow against Christmas has an early victorious ending. Evidently once this story went viral the School Board relented on this attack on the Christian faith. Here is a story I found about this victory in Jesus.

Wisconsin Christmas Music Battle Goes Viral; Students Claim Victory

 

By Kallsign Snoopy

October 11, 2013

Kallsign Snoopy’s Hamshack

 

We reported the story last Sunday — the media ran with it Tuesday. By Wednesday Freedom From Religion Foundation got in on the act. It appears to be the first big national story in the War on Christmas 2013.

 

In an update after a late Thursday meeting with the school district students and parents are claiming victory and that the Christmas concerts are now back on — with traditional Christmas music put back in place.

 

Here’s the issue: without warning the choir director at West High School in Wausau, Wisconsin was called to discuss plans for the upcoming music events to be held in December. It was reported early on that Wausau schools three options for December concerts, which typically contain a significant amount of religious music: choose five secular, or non-religious, songs for each religious song performed; hold a concert and have no holiday music whatsoever; or postpone any concerts in December. The choir director was outraged and in response he opted not only to cancel concerts — he disbanded the music groups who would traditionally perform.

 

The school district claims it is merely making sure they don’t violate the establishment clause of the U.S. Constitution (because educators in Wisconsin have SUCH a great track record with constitutional issues). They also say now they never came up with the plan to perform a certain amount of secular songs for every religious song performed. They claim that was a “misunderstanding”.

 

Needless to say, as with many battles we’ve seen before about Christmas in public schools, this one too will end with someone being very unhappy.

 

 

Freedom from Religion Foundation president Annie Laurie Gaylor claims no responsibility in this latest fight but was quick to pitch in with FFRF’s support of the school district:

 

“There can be a fine line, and we understand in some instances there can be sacred classical music in the schools, but it’s so easy for something like this to turn into a message of indoctrination. When you have a chorus going out to 15 places to sing religious music, it really does give the appearance that the school is celebrating Christianity.”

 

Yes, Christianity as gained so many converts over the decades by going to nursing homes to sing “Silent Night”.

 

The tip off of a problem was that the school choir director met with school district officials with an attorney present. In other words, they were ready for a fight.

 

According to a story on The Blaze tonight, the choir director at West High is known for his religious nature.

 

All this intense attention to the issue appears to have been resolved as of late Thursday. The Wausau School District has backed off on the requirements and have left the decision of local program content to school principals.

 

The crux of the issue comes down to this: when a school group performs Christmas music with religious themes does it in fact constitute promotion of that religion? The “establishment clause” prohibits the “establishment”…does a school group singing actually do that?

 

Oh, and by the way, where exactly in the Constitution is the establishment clause?

 

Another silly chapter in the War on Christmas.

 

(I am glad that this all got cleared up but I really wish people would get it through their heads that there is no such thing as an “establishment” clause. There is a “Government shall make no law” clause. And it only applies to the Congress. Leave my Christmas alone! If you don’t like it, don’t celebrate it. Just don’t ruin it for everyone else!

What to do when the Muslim Minority Assaults Non-Muslim Majority?


Muslim Violence forecast France

John R. Houk

© August 26, 2013

 

My friend Justin Smith via Facebook sent a video of this blonde French gal railing on her French government for doing absolutely zero to protect French people from the racist hatred of Muslims in France being executed in violence against White French people.

 

She describes an email she received describing how a French family was accosted by Muslims. The six months pregnant wife was pelted with stones while working in her own garden. Eventually she lost that baby with the cause being stated as STRESS.

 

The French family’s home was ransacked several times including twice in one day. The blonde gal says the police would not respond to the crimes because this family lives in an “unsafe zone” within their own nation.

 

One of the largest concentration of Muslims in America is in the Detroit metropolitan area – specifically Dearborn. Can you imagine Muslims attacking non-Muslims in this once car making home just because of their Christian beliefs? Guess what. That has happened!

 

VIDEO: Arab Festival 2010: Dearborn Police Defending Islam against the Constitution

 

A Christian group makes annual visit to Dearborn exercising their First Amendment Right of Religious Freedom to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ during a community festival. In the past the Dearborn police actually illegally made the Christians leave. In one case the Christian group was actually attacked by Muslim by the pelting of bottles and cans. The police did not protect the Christians but rather informed them their presence was inciting violence. WHAT! The event was and is public! Is America under United Nations rule that we are prohibited to exercise our Religious Freedom if doing so is insulting to Muslims? THAT IS CRAZY UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

 

The below video is 22 minutes long but you get the idea of Sharia in America in just the first two or three minutes:

 

VIDEO: American Muslims Stone Christians in Dearborn, MI (Original edit)

 

The Muslim violence epidemic affecting the French in their home within the framework of French Culture breeds fear for the French. The Dearborn example demonstrates that this plague in France is gaining a toe-hold in America. Do we want to allow this to happen in American because of the fallacy of Leftist Multiculturalism – protect the Muslim and persecute the Christian to make Muslims feel welcome? I say NO!

 

Clarity needs to be brought out that Religious Freedom does not mean violence against another religion is okay if the other religion is insulted. Of course that works both ways. Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus or even atheists should not attack Muslims due to their religious beliefs. Oops … I have not heard of such action since the days of the Ku Klux Klan White Supremacists attacking Black Churches in the South. This is the 21st century and that does not occur anymore.

 

When minority Muslims in the West (like France, America, UK and other nations) can attack with impunity because their Islamic Supremacism tells them they have the right to attack non-Muslims disrespecting Islam and the police structure allows such violence to occur, then we have a problem. If the problem is not solved immediately eventually there will be religious strife that will take on the picture of racial violence as the inherent culture becomes weary of unhinged Muslim violence against non-Muslims. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that hot heads will gather a following of wronged people or families by Islamic Supremacism within the native culture.

 

The Law of the Land must step in now even if there is a time of violence by recalcitrant Muslims until barriers are established that violence due to any religious beliefs will not be tolerated.

 

Below is that Blonde French Gal that touches on these issues passionately. Even though she speaks in French it is worth it to read the subtitles and match it to the emotion she is displaying. And even though she rails on the French government she finishes with Vive le France. Typically I am not a fan of the French because of the portrayal of an anti-American attitude; however in this case her emotion moves me to join Blondie –Vive le France!

00:58

 

I’ll explain what’s going on.

01:02

 

Two weeks ago I received a worrying email asking me

01:06

 

for help, because he had big problems.

01:10

 

I responded, but

01:14

 

no more than that, as I get such messages

01:18

 

by the hundreds regularly.

01:22

 

So, the situation: this young man lives in the North

01:26

 

next to the city of Louches.

01:30

 

On hearing the name of this town

01:34

 

one feels like laughing, but knowing what is happening there,

01:38

 

it’s not funny.

01:42

 

So this young man moved there.

01:46

 

It started with anti-white insults;

01:50

 

it escalated. Three weeks ago his wife

01:54

 

was pelted with stones in her garden

01:58

 

while she was six months pregnant. His little brother

02:02

 

has also been violently attacked.

02:06

 

He intervened, and six of them jumped on him.

02:10

 

Result: both ended in the emergency room.

02:14

 

His house has been ransacked, twice

02:18

 

in two days. They destroyed everything, furniture,

02:22

 

baby things, crockery.

02:26

 

They returned that night to finish the job.

02:31

 

The police don’t come

02:35

 

because the district is too dangerous.

02:39

 

Social services and city hall know about it.

02:43

 

The police know about it.

02:47

 

But nobody does anything.

02:51

 

So he called me for help, because his wife,

02:55

 

with all this stress, just lost her baby

02:59

 

yesterday.

03:03

 

Labor was induced this morning.

03:07

 

Her baby was stillborn

03:11

 

because of all this stress

03:15

 

and the incapacity of our government.

03:19

 

I find this revolting,

03:23

 

because they have no idea of the situation

03:27

 

of these people. There are thousands of people like this,

03:31

 

but Mr. Valls [Manuel Valls, interior minister] fights Islamophobia instead.

03:35

 

I ask myself: what

03:39

 

if the wife of this man had been called “Fatima”?

03:43

 

You can imagine the huge reaction this would have caused

03:47

 

in all the (despicable) media.

03:51

 

We would have heard about it everywhere.

03:55

 

But as the victim was merely a little French whitey, no worries.

03:59

 

I am really outraged.

04:03

 

I am close to exploding, when I see Mr. Valls

04:07

 

call us Islamophobes:

04:11

 

stop the bulls***! What does Mr. Valls do for all these people

04:15

 

who live in and next to these cities,

04:19

 

who cannot go out in peace? What does he do for our police?

04:23

 

What does he do for our firefighters?

04:27

 

Nothing at all!

04:31

 

Except protect HIS police,

04:35

 

his political police, you know the ones I’m talking about.

04:39

 

I’m speaking of the “Antifa” [extreme left groups].They consider us

04:43

 

Fachos [Fascists].

04:47

 

“Fachos” because we love our country

04:51

 

as it used to be. We are called Fascists.

04:55

 

3/4 of us have no criminal record (as they do),

05:00

 

but it is we who are dangerous fascists.

05:04

 

It’s time to put things back into order

05:08

 

and DO something, because the time for talk is over.

05:12

 

Do something; send in the Army.

05:16

 

It’s not OK to let women live in fear,

05:20

 

let women lose their children because of stress.

05:24

 

It’s non-assistance to people in danger.

05:28

 

The government does not do its duty.

05:32

 

This has to stop.

05:36

 

If they don’t know, I can explain it to them, I get testimonies,

05:40

 

thousands of them, but

05:44

 

[Valls] couldn’t care less. He is in his beautiful big house, in security.

05:48

 

Mr. Valls is not worried,

05:52

 

nor are all the other clowns in our Government.

05:56

 

A solution must be found quickly. I appeal to lawyers.

06:00

 

I appeal to city hall, the Prefect,

06:04

 

ANYONE! Help this young couple

06:08

 

The young man, I spent more than two hours

06:12

 

on the phone with him. He was in a terrible state;

06:16

 

he was close to suicide. We were several patriots

06:20

 

trying to talk him out of it.

06:24

 

He was also close to going into the city to get himself killed

06:28

 

simply by provoking.

06:32

 

And no, nobody will do anything.

06:36

 

So, stop the bulls*** and do something

06:40

 

and clean up these cities. Stop the blah-blah. Talk fests are nice,

06:44

 

but there is never any action. As I said before:

06:48

 

The time for dialogue is finished.

06:52

 

Either they move, or we are the ones who will move you.

06:56

 

We cannot let people like this get attacked,

07:00

 

end up in hospital, their houses ransacked,

07:04

 

their cars burnt, and we remain silent,

07:08

 

while the police cannot even GO there.

07:12

 

My little sister called me three days ago to tell me

07:16

 

that she was grossly insulted, because she wears the same thing as I around the neck

07:21

 

We are FED UP!

07:25

 

I am angry, and we are all angry.

07:29

 

We try to calm people a little on the net,

07:33

 

but we will not be able to calm them

07:37

 

for ten years.

07:41

 

So, he [Valls] should stop questioning, let him get on the phone and send in the army.

07:45

 

He is not aware of the situation. All he does is…

07:49

 

yes… good… you are Islamophobes,

07:53

 

you don’t love Islam… yeah, that’s it.

07:57

 

Fed up, there are endless problems with Islam.

08:01

 

I am threatened, I am on the wall of the “Antifas”

08:05

 

the ones I call “THEIR” political police. Because their young men

08:09

 

are much more violent than we who are considered fascists.

08:13

 

Why? Because I defend the police, the firefighters

08:17

 

civilians, the army? But it’s YOUR work, not mine;

08:21

 

get your ideas in order

08:25

 

And so…

08:29

 

this crime must not go unpunished.

08:33

 

A baby is dead, a family is destroyed,

08:37

 

and it’s just ONE example among many

08:41

 

So: move! That’s all I have to say on

08:45

 

on this subject. And the next video

08:49

 

we will discuss [inaudible].

08:53

 

I wish you a good day, and Vive la France!
