When it comes to any perceived insult to Christians and Christianity, Fox News goes into full battle mode with, as Jon Stewart said, "a constant barrage of apocalyptic paranoia and outrage." ("Outrage" being the standard Fox word in any story about persecuted Christians). Last week, we saw a full, frontal Fox propaganda blast related to a lawsuit, filed by atheists, against the placement of the "Ground Zero Cross" in a publicly funded museum. During two discussions on this non-issue, official Fox priest attacked atheists who represent a popular bête noire for Fox. And it's not just atheists who are on Fox's black list. Last Friday, the nice Christians on The Five, who think atheists should leave the country if they're not happy with state sponsored Christianity, underscored why Fox News is the place where "you can bash Islam with impunity."
After briefly bashing the atheists over the Ground Zero Cross, during which time they advanced the lie that the atheists are claiming that they are suffering from dyspepsia (the final court document does not include that), the gang launched into their hate fest using the new movie about Noah as their propaganda vehicle.
Devout Catholic Eric Bolling, who once evicted an atheist from a Fox Business show because the guest didn't show the proper respect to Jesus, started the ball rolling. He reported that Egyptian censors don't want Noah to be kept out of theaters because they consider it "irreligious." Bolling claimed that Egypt banned "The Passion of the Christ" and the "DaVinci Code" (which was protested, by Christians, right here in the USA.) Bolling snarked "more Muslim intolerance." Bob Beckel whined about how if Islamic countries are secular states, they shouldn't censor movies. (Wonder what Beckel thought about the Smithsonian having to pull an AIDS video after the Catholic League protested?) Born again Beckel asserted that "Sharia Law is a waste of time."
Given that the religious right and the Catholic League's *Bill Donohue are offended by everything, Gutfeld's statement, that Muslims "should put out a book of everything that offends them" was laughable. His comment, that "religion shouldn't have such low self-esteem" and that "you should be confident that your faith can welcome skepticism or welcome other faiths" is laughable as that assessment could certainly be applied to those who actually think the "war on Christmas" is real.
Andrea Tantaros, always a voice of tolerance (just kidding) joked that "The Five" should sell "Fatwa This" tee-shirts on their website. (Please, go for it.) Good Christian Tantaros, who doesn't understand why "the left" won't defend persecuted Christians as much as it does Muslims, declared that "Islam is the most intolerant religion in the world." She got out her broad brush in describing Islam: "They turn on people who turn on Islam and kill them, even worse than people who aren't Islamic in the first place."
Being good Christians and all, I guess that Tantaros and her friends are unaware of the rabid intolerance of the Christian religious right towards homosexuality - an intolerance based on the Christian bible. And being Fox News anti-Islam propaganda pimps, I guess they're unaware that Christians were also upset about "inaccuracies" in "Noah" which has been edited in order to avoid offending Christians. But seriously, can you imagine the outrage on "The Five" if somebody in the librul media said that Christians are idiots - and judging from what you see on The Five, they might be right on the money!
*Did ya know that the movie "Philomena" is anti-Catholic?!
These are not normal countries, Ellen.
Turkey genocided virtually ALL of its Christian population, while denying culpability to this day. They’ve confiscated vast tracts of E. Orthodox property, including their only seminary, and refused to return it. They’ve arrested most of their senior military personell – whom Attaturk tasked with guaranteeing a secular state by Constitutional fiat and infiltrated the judiciary with islamists. They have also imprisoned the largest number of journalists of any country. They are moving in one, very steady direction, which has placed the young of Istanbul with absolute DREAD for the future, as the recent protests indicate.
Qatar and the UAE support standard shariah based purdah, which IMPRISONS women who complain of being raped because they are unable to produce the 4 witnesses required by islam.
As for Saudi Arabia . . It’s essentially an open air prison for women, and WORSE – but you knew all of the, didn’t you?
On the contrary you PERENNIALLY PAMPERED PUNK, YOU are the one who is in VERY DIRE NEED OF MENTAL HELP! It’s PAINFULLY OBVIOUS to me that YOU DO NOT POSSESS ANY CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS WHATSOEVER! Mark my words: People — er, I mean — “SHEEPLE” LIKE YOU who are TOTALLY UNABLE TO THINK FOR YOURSELVES are the principal reason why Faux Spews Channel has been VERY, VERY SUCCESSFUL, because this Rupert Murdoch owned media outlet tells you ONLY WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE AND HEAR 24/7/365!
Turkey, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia off the top of my head.
EXCUSE ME — didn’t either one of you folks EVER hear of this ancient proverb? :
“IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!”
In other words, IF YOU WALK LIKE A NAZI, TALK LIKE A NAZI, AND ACT LIKE A NAZI…
And furthermore, the both of you sound an awful lot like perennial reichwing PFCs (Privileged Fascist Chickenhawks) who ALWAYS expect the less fortunate to fight and die in wars.
Oh, how deliciously original!
“REICHWING PALS ", indeed!
I’m thinkin’ you take that lefty pap and swallow it whole without taking a breath before you spew it out.
Dingy Harry (and the clowns who run this site) must be darned proud!
“You see, it’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn’t we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” – Adolph Hitler
“Islam is the Kiss of Death.
We had better start fighting this repulsive cancer NOW!”
Hey loyal infidel — I have a suggestion:
HOW ABOUT YOU AND YOUR REICHWING PALS ON THIS THREAD LEAD THE WAY BY MARCHING YOUR BUTTS DOWN TO YOUR NEAREST ARMED FORCES RECRUITING CENTER AND ENLISTING? I’m sure the line there is not long. It’s time for you and your reichwing pals to PUT UP OR SHUT THE HELL UP!
Fill the internet, blogosphere and call in talk shows, to spread the truth about islam. Force feed it to the liberals and pacifists among us until they have to accept it for what it is….menacing cult of death.
We had better start fighting this repulsive cancer NOW!
In every way, everywhere, in all forms. As an invasive species,
Islam must be eradicated completely as there is no middle ground with the Kiss of Death.
What other religion in the world hangs gay people from cranes in celebration of how fabulous they are?
What other religion celebrates women’s rights with rock throwing parties.
What other religion releases women of worrying about their attractiveness by requiring that you are fully covered head to toe. But fret not ladies, if you want to show off, you might get invited to a rock throwing party as the guest of honor.
What religion has done more to liberate the female. When you have 3 sister wives, the house chores are not anywhere near as bad as being by yourself. And if you are angry with your husband, their is always another bed he can go to instead of bothering you or sleeping on the couch.
Of course women are always well protected. You can never leave the house without an escort. That makes you feel safe in that rough world we live it doesn’t it?
And what is more tolerant that the ability to love children, early and often. everyone else in the world has made it a crime to love a child so much. What is wrong with you people…
You honestly think there is some kind of moral equivalence between Christianity and islam?
What’s worse, you think there are enough like thinkers you can get away with publishing this kind of garbage!
“We watch Fox so you don’t have to”?
How progressive of you.
Better you should use “we’ll tell you what to think so you don’t have to”.
It would be honest and you’d have the same audience.
And there’s more at the link.
Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology. He was born in Capetown in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.
When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well..
Here’s how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving
minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
United States — Muslim 0.6%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
This is happening in:
Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.
They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
This is occurring in:
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.
In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:
Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99..8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ’The Haj’
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law.
The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers.
Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.
Shariah compliant muslims believe in gender aparteid, forced veiling, purdah (extreme restrictions on the movements, dress and associations of females), halal wife/sister/daughter beating, halal paedophelic marriage for girls (starting at 9 years), concubinage, death for open apostates, blasphemers, adulterers and homosexuals, permanent second class status for non-muslims with extreme restrictions on proselytizing and building along with extreme legal disabilities, especially when the case involves a muslim, and jihad against every non-muslim people and government until everyone everywhere is forced to convert, submit or die.
Christians generally oppose abortion and gay marriage.
In other words, they’re EXACTLY THE SAME. (sarc. off).
How many people were killed in the protests against Scorsese’s film? Dozen’s died as a result of the Jyllands Posten Mohammed Cartoons.
Scorsese can walk around freely in public, whereas the artists who drew those cartoons are still under a fatwa and live in hiding.
Your attempt at morally equivocating Islam and Christianity just makes the difference between the two more obvious. Tolerance of other people’s views doesn’t mean abandoning your own.
