Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and a loyal citizen?
Theologically, no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.
Scripturally, no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).
Geographically, no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially, no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically, no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically, no, because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).
Religiously, no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)
Intellectually, no, because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically, no, because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co - exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually, no, because when we declare "one nation under God," the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as our heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.
Therefore after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both good Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish...it's still the truth. If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above, perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country.
Religion of peace. yep.
I know several very, very patriotic muslims.
You ought to think about this a bit before you start denying Christians their God.
None of this prevents Muslims from being good Democrats.
Diatribe against Muslims?
You RACIST! ;o)
I know several very, very patriotic Americans that I will not trust to leave my wife and children with. Nor will I trust them to cover my back. Your point is?
No, and neither can a present day Democrat/Liberal be.
The lone Jihadist in NC went off simply because he was a good Muslim.
Point is, that many muslims in this country KNOW the USA is the best hope for them, and the only hope to force reform in their homelands.
The Kurds of Seattle dancing in the streets after the fall of Baghdad saying God Bless George Bush are but one example.
> What about the Christians who live in Arabic speaking lands and use Arab language gospels? Who is their God?
The post is about Muslims, not Arabs.
There are Christian Arabs, but no Christian Muslims.
I don't understand your point. I'm not saying that I agree with his, but how is it that Middle Eastern Muslims reading the Koran in Arabic is the same as Middle Eastern Christians reading the Bible in Arabic. They're two different books.
So then, based on these areguments, catholics can not be good americans and patriots?
Not to pick a nit.
You can extract precepts of the Christian faith, especially Catholicism, and conclude that adherence to the religion foreclosed patriotism.
It was only in the 1960's that many in the U.S. believed that the Pope was ready to rule America if Kennedy won the election.
Not so for some of the ones I've met. I've never met a more anti-mullah person in my life than 2 Iranians I worked with. And I currently work with a devout Pakistani, who abhores Bin Laden and was very disgusted by the whole BS cartoon protests.
I wouldn't insult the intelligence of my friends by sending this e-mail to them, and I certainly wouldn't disgrace myself and my family by doing so either. To paint every single Muslim with the same brush is wrong, IMHO.
Does that mean because you won't trust "several very, very patriotic Americans", you would then choose to distrust ALL patriotic Americans? Something to think about. :)
