Interesting. Insofar as religion goes, nothing could be more different than the Progressive political ideal and the Islamic faith. However, “religion” in most cases, is only a surface concept. It’s skin deep.
The ENDS of both Islam and Liberalism are the same — rebellion against the God of Scripture, insurrection against the Father in Heaven, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit at work in drawing all humans to Him.
Having taught Religion for a dozen years now, I know that what may be fascinating culturally, doctrinally and historically can also be frightening spiritually and condemned Biblically. Islam IS. Liberalism IS. Both seek to dethrone the God of the Bible in the hearts of mankind and set up false gods in His place. Don’t believe them — and don’t goubt that, given the right circumstances and conditions, they will certainly cooperate with one another in order to attempt to destroy their common enemy — the Truth, the followers of Truth, and the God of Truth.
The good news is, they will fail — the bad news is, as with any war there will be casualties.
“Interesting. Insofar as religion goes, nothing could be more different than the Progressive political ideal and the Islamic faith.”
That is where most people go wrong. The progressive political ideal is exactly islam in a nutshell. The only difference is what I stated. The progressives are trying to rid the world of G-d. islam already has. It is the antithesis of faith as we know it.
For instance, there is no word in islam for homosexual because homosexuality is practiced freely and openly. It is only when “modern” act-up types flaunt it that it becomes a crime. NOT because it is wrong, but because the exhibition of it “humiliates” islam in the eyes of the world.
Same with pedophilia and bestiality. Same with rape of girls OR boys. It is all condoned in islam.
Add one: Islam and progressive liberals are also united in their Anti-Americanism. It is truly an article of faith for both.
