Radio host condemned for 'Islam is a cult' CAIR cites Neil Boortz for angry confrontation
World Net Daily ^ | 7-19-07

Posted on 07/19/2007 4:26:07 PM PDT by Bladerunnuh

The caller began: "Sir, I'm calling because of some statements you've been making in the past week about the religion of Islam and … "

Boortz interrupted: It's a cult, it's not even a religion. … "

After a long list of crimes perpetrated all over the world in the name of Islam, the talk host told the caller, "You don't have a word of condemnation in you until the non-Islamic world rises up and starts to make it clear that we are fed up with your damned religion. We've had it up to here.

"And somebody, like I said yesterday, somebody needs to grab the Muslim world by the shirt collar, backhand it a good one, knock it into the damn corner and say straighten up or we're gonna eradicate you beetles from the face of the Earth. … "

CAIR asked its constituents not to contact Boortz, because he "can and will use any comments to further defame Islam and Muslim."

“”By this definition the Roman Catholic Church, at least in some areas of the world, was a cult up through the mid 19th century. Had you been around then you presumably would have joined the Know-Nothing Party, which was opposed to the influence of the Catholic “cult” in America.””

Probably not, given that I was raised Catholic.
My, but the ad hominem starts early here

Once again, you have been refuted!

a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader.

Shall I list a few of the religions that have been classified as cults using this definition, down through the centuries? As can be seen by legal and mob persecution against them.

Christians, Jews, Mormons, Catholics (in Russia and elsewhere), Orthodox Christians (in Poland and elsewhere), Hugenots, Waldenses, Jehovah's Witnesses, Hasidim, Unitarians, Anabaptists, Seventh-Day Adventists, Mennonites, Christian Scientists, Quakers.

That's just off the top of my head.

BTW, I don't object to Boortz believeing Islam is a cult. I object to his stating his personal opinion as a fact. "Islam isn't a religion, it's a cult."

Looked at a calendar lately?

History is very wonderful tool. One needs to learn from it.

And not use it as an excuse or justification.

Islam did not quite catch on to that, "we are done with holy war's now", like the rest of the world did.

Hmmmm......

Boo hoo. I agree with Boortz. I have friends of various religions and a wife of a different religion than I. But I do and will continue to call Islam, Scientology, and Mormonism CULTS!

Good for you.

I know Protestants who call Catholicism a cult.

Guess we should elect a religious Govt that "eradicates" all the religions we consider "cults"?

You are as misinformed as the gentleman you quoted. Islam is a murderous CULT that wants nothing more than world domination and you bowing down to them.

Islam is a cult, pure and simple. Anyone who doesn't have the reasoning skills to figure that out is blind, very blind. And that kind of religious system is not guaranteed any rights except the right to be jailed or wiped out.

It is too bad that you think Islam actually can co-exist with our society. It cannot.

I was hurt, deeply hurt when I learned that. I simply could not accept it - that there was a philosophy that could not simply live in our society. I was aghast at the implications.

But on reflection, there are a lot of “religions” which cannot be in our society. One is that of the Aztecs. Don’t laugh. We cannot and will not accept a movement which requires the ritual murder and consumption of human flesh of prisoners and volunteers as a form of religious devotion. That’s obvious, isn’t it?

We similarly cannot have a king who rips the hearts from living people and eats them (Olmec religious tradition). That tradition as well is not able to exist in our society. It is a sickness, an aberration of serial killers and death-worshipers. Plus, we are not a monarchy.

We also cannot have a government which is REQUIRED to treat all but one religion as illegitimate and classifies all but the adherents of that one religion as subhuman. (Islam).

Islam cannot in its present state, be anything but our eternal and complete enemy. That’s the heartbreaker, because it follows that our recent idealism about the First Amendment (recent in historical terms) cannot exist on the same planet as Islam. Islam cannot treat others as it is treated. It has no tradition of “Render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar, render unto God what is God’s” in any fashion at all.

It cannot BE if we are to be. We cannot exist without being a deathly insult to Islam. This is an inescapable truth IF islam cannot reform as did Christianity.

It's time to accept the fact Islam must be destroyed.

And how do we do this?

Are we going to outlaw Islam and arrest everybody wearing a burka or found in a Mosque?

Are we going to lock up millions of people? Kill them all?

You seem to share with Neal a talent for stating your opinion as if it constitutes a fact.

The official position of the RCC was strongly opposed to religious freedom right from the time it gained political power through the late 19th century. I believe it did not officially accept the concept of religious freedom till the 1960s.

So was it a cult all that time?

BTW, I'm not trying to be ad hominem. I'm trying to get someone to come up with a rational definition for "cult" that would include Islam but not a great many religions, now or in the past, that are widely accepted in America today.

As I said, the real definition of a cult is “a religion I really, really don’t like.”

I define cults as religious doctrines that are not completely biblical or overtly anti-biblical.

Do you have another, objective definition that would cover Islam that wouldn’t apply equally to other religions that have been widely accepted now or in the past?

See above. Read the Bible and then go read the Suras.

Tell me then that they refer to the same moral code.

Bet you can't.

I have no problem with your definition, as long as you don’t try to force others to agree.

You do realize that something around 90% of the world’s population is a member of a cult by your definition, depending on how rigidly you interpret “biblical?” (I’ve known some people who interpreted it very strictly.)

Also, by the definition posted earlier, “a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist,” most of the world probably considers you to be a cult member!

You need to pull your head out of the sand and accept the cold hard fact the premise of Islam is to convert, subjugate or destroy anyone who is not Islamic as the following article reveals.

Islamic Scholar Warns U.S. of 'Two-Faced' Muslims

NewsMax.com Wires

Thursday, June 20, 2002

WASHINGTON – A leader of the small worldwide Muslim reform movement is warning the West against wishful thinking as the U.S. government promotes an intensive dialogue with Islam.

"The dialogue is not proceeding well because of the two-facedness of most Muslim interlocutors on the one hand and the gullibility of well-meaning Western idealists on the other," Bassam Tibi said Tuesday in an interview with United Press International.

Syrian-born Tibi, who claims to be a direct descendant of the prophet Mohammed and teaches political science at Goettingen University in Germany, appealed for intellectual honesty in these exchanges.

This Is 'Peace'?

"First, both sides should acknowledge candidly that although they might use identical terms these mean different things to each of them. The word 'peace,' for example, implies to a Muslim the extension of the Dar al-Islam – or 'House of Islam' – to the entire world," explained Tibi, who is also a research scholar at Harvard University.

"This is completely different from the Enlightenment concept of eternal peace that dominates Western thought, a concept developed by Immanuel Kant," an 18th-century philosopher.

This Is 'Tolerance'?

"Similarly, when Muslims and the Western heirs of the Enlightenment speak of tolerance they have different things in mind. In Islamic terminology, this term implies abiding non-Islamic monotheists, such as Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians, as second-class believers. They are 'dhimmi,' a protected but politically immature minority."

According to Tibi, the quest of converting the entire world to Islam is an immutable fixture of the Muslim worldview. Only if this task is accomplished, if the world has become a "Dar al-Islam," will it also be a "Dar a-Salam," or a house of peace.

Tibi appealed to his co-religionists to "revise their understanding of peace and tolerance by accepting pluralism." Furthermore, he said, Muslim leaders should give up the notion of Jihad in the sense of conquest, as opposed to Jihad as an internal struggle of the individual.

Liberal Mush

Tibi's advice comes at a time when the U.S. government is urging American Muslim leaders to promote understanding for the United States in Islamic regions. To Tibi, this is more of a diplomatic endeavor than the promotion of a more profound theological understanding between Islam and the Judeo-Christian worldview prevalent in the West.

But Muzammil Siddiqi, one senior Islamic scholar the State Department consults with, told UPI he found that his efforts in furthering contacts between Muslim, Christian and Jewish theologians were having some success.

Indian-born Siddiqi is the director of the large Islamic Center of Orange County in California. In consultation with the State Department and in cooperation with the University of Kentucky, he traveled back and forth between the United States and the Middle East trying to convince Muslim theologians and jurists to meet with American church leaders.

"I have found that many, though not all, were ready to welcome visitors from America and also to come here to explore with Christians and Jews what we have in common," Siddiqi said.

Though Siddiqi's center is heavily engaged in interfaith activities, he made it clear that to him, as indeed for conservative Christians, syncretism – the mixing of religions – was anathema.

Common values should be sought out, he explained, and the equality of all believers respected, be they Muslims, Christians, Hindus or Buddhists. But the purity of the faith must not be compromised.

In an article in the prestigious Hamburg weekly Die Zeit, Tibi gave anecdotal evidence of how daunting a task this dialogue with Islam can be.

Staring in Horror at the Bible

The bishop of Hildesheim in Germany paid an imam a courtesy visit in his mosque. The imam handed the Catholic prelate a Koran, which he joyfully accepted. But when the bishop tried to present the imam with a Bible, the Muslim cleric just stared at him in horror and refused to even touch Christianity's holy book.

"The bishop was irritated because he perceived this behavior as a gross discourtesy," wrote Tibi, "but the imam had only acted according to his faith. For if an imam gives a bishop a Koran, he considers this a Da'Wa, or call to Islam."

This, explained Tibi, must be borne in mind when one engages in a dialogue with Muslim "scholars," for it corresponds to a verse in the Koran: "And say ... to those who are unlearned: 'Do ye submit yourselves?'" (Surah 3:20).

Actually, Hitler never desired war with Britain, and offered repeatedly to make peace with the British, who he admired as true Aryans.

In Hitler’s theory, the Germans would rule over Europe’s subhumans, and the British would rule, in alliance with Germany, over those outside Europe.

This Neil Boortz' rant is nothing but divisive and inflammatory the plain unvarnished truth

and about time someone refuses to genuflect to the mooseslimes conditioning that forbids anyone to issue a word or phrase that may "offend" their sensitive psyches - they who cut off heads with bread knives and deliberately blow up innocent men, women and children.

People who are kow towing to this PC blackmail: "Say nothing to offend us or beware the consequences" are guilty of either ignorance or cowardice.

I actually had someone, the other day, in answer to my remark that a mooseslime imam had warned England that they would pay for the insult of Knighting the now Sir Ahmed Salman Rushdie, - this someone said: "Well, they should have known better."

(mouth dropped)

"Excuse me?"

"They should have known it would offend them and not have done it."

So we have come a long way towards 'learning our place' - and falling under control by intimidation.

I did mention that cutting off head and blowing up innocent people seemed a bit offensive in my way of thinking ...

I agree with you about not bowing to their definition of what we can and can’t say. If they’re offended, that’s tough. In America we have freedom of speech.

However, one of my best friends is a (Sufi) Muslim, who OBL would probably kill as a heretic in preference to you or me. He is perhaps the kindest, gentlest person I have ever known. He converted from Presbyterianism during the 60s because he thought Christianity was “too violent.” (Vietnam and all that.)

I’ve had a lot of fun ribbing him about frying pans and fires!

Lumping him in with OBL is comprehensively insane.

How do the Muslims characterize Christians, I wonder? Do you think they call Christians simply another religion, on a par with their own? We both know the answer to that, so let’s not get too caught up in Bortz’s calling Islam a cult.

The larger point made by Boortz has not been taken up on this thread. Where is CAIR and the Islamic community when atrocities are committed in the name of Islam? They say little or nothing. Yet they get all exercised over a cartoon depicting Islam in a less than favorable light. Perhaps it IS time that we answer Islam tooth for tooth, eye for eye, life for life... At least they would understand that.

The only rational definition of a cult is "a religion I don't like."

No a cult is a society based on the personality of a single individual.

For Islam that personality, that individual is Mohammad.

When Mohammad was asked by a follower how should I live my life? Mohammad responded after some thought “In god’s servant (Mohammad) you have the example of a godly life”.

Islam is a cult of personality.

With all due respect, that’s perhaps the worst definition I’ve ever seen.

Whose faith? What works?

Can one not have faith in something false or evil?

Cannot works be evil in nature?

Blowing yourself up for your religion is certainly an act of both faith and works, but not one I’d consider positive.

These people should be locked up or removed from this earth immediately.

What I'm against is inciting wars against entire religions.

No a cult is a society based on the personality of a single individual. For Islam that personality, that individual is Mohammad.

Is not Christianity based on the personality of Jesus Christ?

AAMOF, Christianity takes it to the next level, considering Christ to be God. Islam says Mo is just a man, although the best man who ever lived.

When Mohammad was asked by a follower how should I live my life? Mohammad responded after some thought “In god’s servant (Mohammad) you have the example of a godly life”.

How about the bracelets with the monogram, WWJD?

Whoa! There’s a fine line between bravery and throw-caution-to-the-wind recklessness, and I think you crossed it. ;-)

"Islam HAS co-existed with our society here in the States for MANY years."

You need a reality check. Some of the 9/11 hijackers lived in this country for years while planning our destruction.

Right. And the abortion clinic bombers lived in this country while planning as well.

Guess that mean Christians cannot "co-exist" in our society either?

According to a new (and scary, I might add) book called “Islam: What the West Needs to Know”, Islam is a political movement and not a religion at all. The author was interviewed by Tucker C. and said that Islam has always been about world domination. That was the goal from its inception.

(Not sure if I have the exact title correct.)

Ah, yes, but we’re bringing in more and more into our country, and they have oodles of kids. I saw a lady in her head scarf at a mall, and she had 4 or 5 young boys with her. All I could think of was future terrorists.

Is nothing more than a cult and can not be called a religion.

Absolutely.

I think we usually think of a cult as an organization that controls it's members with a form of mind control.

This seems to be blatantly evident with Islam - I wonder if they aren't subjected to mind control and kept there - like someone hypnotized - through the same 'trigger' mechanized method. The 'trigger' in Islam? The 5 times a day they must react to the bells and calls from them minarets to drop to the ground and play stinkbug, with butts in the air and heads toward mecca, for one example. None dare refrain for fear of being reported -

And they have an instruction to cover each and every act in their daily lives - EVEN step by step instructions on going to the bathroom. This is the truth. (go to this site and scroll down to the item #5 "Cleanliness". And read some of the others motion by motion instructions in just about every act in their days.)

It's mind control through hypnotic triggers and raw fear, plain and simple.

Is that not a cult?

Out of curiosity, to the poster of #16, who says

Neal is being an idiot here. The only rational definition of a cult is "a religion I don't like." Why Neal gets to be the decider on what constitutes a religion is apparently left unanswered.

If you belong to a religion, do they tell how to wipe yourself?
