Christian churches fed 'Islam lite'
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | February 07, 2010 | Michael Carl

An expert on the advance of radical Islam in the United States says the Muslim Brotherhood is effectively employing a strategy of presenting "Islam lite" to organizations, including Christian churches.

Dorothy Cutter, coordinator for the Hartford, Conn., chapter of Aglow Islamic Awareness, part of a national chain of Christian fellowships that study how Islamic law motivates Muslims to participate in jihad, said she heard of a United Church of Christ congregation where an Islamic speaker was a guest.

She contacted the church to see if she would be allowed to present some of the harsher truths about Islam.

"The pastor pushed the material back at me and said, 'It's people like you who are responsible for an escalation of the violence,'" Cutter said.

Cutter said organizations such as Hartford Seminary are sending imams "to condition members of the area churches to believe the light version of Islam."

Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project for Terrorism, concurred.

"Hartford Seminary is a place that has been compromised by the Muslim Brotherhood, and then there's the Center for Christian and Muslim Understanding at Georgetown University. The center is a de facto arm of the Muslim Brotherhood," Emerson said.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the Sunni transnational movement founded in Egypt in 1928 that has spawned most of the major terrorist movements in the world, including al-Qaida and Hamas. It's aim is to make Islamic law supreme over the world.

There's no such thing as a moderate muslim. Islam is a violent political ideology with its own set of laws and court system. Religion is only one component used to impose islam on non muslim societies. Islam is anathema to the U.S. Constitution. The two cannot co-exist in the U.S.

Sorry, I am finally forced to say it. The real truth is that the only peaceful Muslim is a dead Muslim.

They must be stopped.

Not all Moose are militant. But almost all will cover for the militant ones when pressed.

Asked about Islamic jihad, he said any religion can be misunderstood.

There's no misunderstanding when you see the stats...

The United Church of Christ is no longer a Christian church. They have bought into the liberal lies.

Praising Islam’s civilizing contributions, without noting its unalloyed decent into violence and military conquest could not be more disgraceful. About 1100 AD Hassan bin Sabah enlightened Islamist societies to terrorism as foundational statecraft for political prosperity. Philosophical and religious lawyers retained their lives supporting dictators by backwards engineering Koran passages into useful totalitarian heterodoxies. Concurrently, espousing foundational expositions, including Jews, Christians and Muslims as ‘People of the Book”, became perilous undertakings. Concurrently, Saladin’s Sufism stressing individual relationship with God, and exalting individualism within society became marginalized. Concurrently, extraordinary Arab achievements in mathematics, philosophy, science, and medicine submerged within authoritarian and feral societies.

Omar Khayyam, Ibn al-Haytham, and Abu Ali al-Hussain Ibn Sina had no successors for uncompromising, independent thought. Arabs whether conquerors, or ruled by Mongols or Ottomans suffered under the same brutal amalgamation of perverted religion and base human addictions to power. If in Islam there were ever equivalents to Martin Luther to say this was all an abomination, they were murdered as an effective warning to all who came after.

Such is the fate of all philosophies and faiths under manipulation within the fallen human condition. Christians confronted intermittent persecution within the Roman Empire until Constantine discovered, out on necessity, they had developed viable temporal institutions amidst a crumbling imperial bureaucracy. Now faith was obscured behind a Catholic Church, which constructed Potemkin villages of political power to brutally contend for political domination into the Enlightenment.

True Christians will always be sojourners in this world because of relationship with Christ. The denominations grew up around rediscovery of revelations of faith. Any of them have, can and will be turned into religions in a similar manner as noted above to provide utility for creative totalitarianism.

Beware of finding popularity and utility within a world where people have an addiction to power equivalent to compulsions towards alcohol and pornography. That is the message of Islam to the Christian churches.

“said she heard of a United Church of Christ congregation where an Islamic speaker was a guest.”

Happened at a Uniting Church I was part once part of. The organisers didn’t even ask the Pastor - they put a Koran in our Loan bookshop too. That soon go it’s marching orders.

I talked to one of the organisers about it and she told me that the Islamic woman was lovely and that she explained how they were all misunderstood. My reply was - well what did you expect her to say “We are all a lot of murdering blood-thristy B#stards” some people are so naive.

Daniel 11:36-39 (King James Version)

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the god of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

Christian churches are buying into the lie of ecumeniam and won’t be able to discern the Antichrist when he comes.

A lot of them are “on fire for God” but if you ask them if islam and Christianity are “sister faiths” they shrug their shoulders and say “yeah”.

This is coming from the voices and doctrines of many Church leaders all around the world.

The muslims and the leftist vermin who support every form of corruption. About half the world’s population is absolutely evil.

I give up on trying to make the world a better place. It can’t be done. The only thing left to do is wage vengeance against the vermin.

I heard “Merry Christmas and happy Ramadan” from the pulpit of an ELCA church. I was out the door before the echo died.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the reincarnation of the ASSASSINS.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.[3]

In the summer of 1942, when German General Erwin Rommel’s Afrikakorps were poised to march into Cairo, Anwar Sadat, Gamal Nasser and their cronies were in touch with the attacking German force and, with help from the Muslim Brotherhood were preparing an anti-British uprising in Egypt’s capital.[9] A treaty with Germany had been drafted by Sadat, which included provisions for German recognition of an independent, but pro-Axis Egypt, and guarantying that “no British soldier would leave Cairo alive.” When Rommel’s push failed in the fall of 1942, Sadat and several of his co-conspirators were arrested by the British, and sat out much of the remainder of the war in jail.

The Hashshashin, a deadly, secretive and radical religious brotherhood, was founded by Hasan i Sabbah in 1090. Also called the Assassins, they were an elite mysterious Muslim brotherhood. Their name derives from the belief that, before they would complete tasks assigned to them by their leader, they would smoke the narcotic known as “hash.” They were based out of a mountain stronghold on the Caspian Sea at Almut. Most known information about the Assassins comes from Marco Polo's supposed visit to Almut in 1273. All Assassins were radical Muslims who rigorously followed their own sect of Islam known as al-da'wa al-jadīda. All Assassins wanted to be martyrs, and they followed all of their orders, even if the orders led to their deaths. In fact, they called themselves fedayeen, which is an Arabic word meaning "one who is ready to sacrifice themselves for a cause." The name Hashshashin was given to them by their Muslim enemies.

“plagued Islam”

The Brotherhood doesn’t “plague” Islam. Islam is the plague.
