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.

Some would accept dhimmitude.....others have before....
I will never...
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.
There's no misunderstanding when you see the stats...
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it!
The United Church of Christ is no longer a Christian church. They have bought into the liberal lies.
Like Interfaith Weekends.
Praising Islams 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, Saladins 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.
United Church of Christ = UCC U = Utterly C = Confused C = "Christians" Their only creed is that they have no Creed.
United Church of Christ= Whack Jorbs (yes Jorbs)
International Church of Christ= christianity+pharisees+amway=ccultt like
traditional Church of Christ=sincere acapella singing christians
Ahhhhh, the old tried and true method of “baby steps”...
Mind you, you don't know what they're dreaming of...
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.
ICHABOD = “The Spirit Has Departed”.
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.
In the summer of 1942, when German General Erwin Rommels 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 Egypts capital. 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 Rommels 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 Brotherhood doesn’t “plague” Islam. Islam is the plague.
