Iím telling you, itís those Christians we need to worry about Ė ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF PEACE
The Religion Of Conquest ^ | 4/7/13 | Damon Whitsell

Posted on 02/06/2013 10:50:33 AM PST by damonw

Post contains the following article from 2008, a cool and humorous picture and video to make a point about Christian Terrorism (AKA abortion clinic bombings)- that being that they hardly ever happen and it is ridiculous to claim Christianity poses anywhere near the threat level of Islam. Even what is termed Christian Dominionism is way overblown by Liberals to point at Christianity when talking about Islam (there is a link in the article to material refuting those claims). So if you have a freind that says something along the lines of Christians are more of a concern that Islam,, send them this light hearted post to rib them a little bit.

SNIPPET: How prevalent is this form of American domestic terrorism? In recent years there have been round about 15,000 – 20,000 murders in total per year in the US. How many of these were of abortion providers?

Guess now. Scribble your answer down.

If you had asked me a few months ago I would have said three or four murders per year.

Considered over the last fifteen years I was overestimating somewhat. According to the best-known pro-abortion organisation in the US, NARAL Pro-Choice America,

Since 1993, seven clinic workers – including three doctors, two clinic employees, a clinic escort, and a security guard – have been murdered in the United States. Seventeen attempted murders have also occurred since 1991.

That figure comes from a document published in December 2007. So far as I know the figures have not changed since then.

However the phrasing “Since 1993 seven abortion clinic workers have been murdered in the United States” could be re-arranged, with equal truth, to say that “since 1998 no abortion clinic workers have been murdered in the United States.”

The last such murder was ten years ago today.

Abortion, gay “marriage” and eliminating Christianity and Judaism are the the sacraments of the liberal religion. So naturally they favor a middle eastern death cult that murders gays, forbids abortion, and kills Christians and Jews.

Yeah, right. Bring on the crusades, and let let the strongest side win. Capitulation will be the death of the west unless we fight.

The technology crusades happened. Came and went. Example: Saudi Arabia got their first car as a gift in 1956?. Light bulbs? Cadillacs? Color TV? They were not even in the race in developing technologies as all inventions for them were imported from the “free industrialized west”. And what is the common thread amongst western man? Christianity.

So, there they sit, mired in their failures looking for someone to hang it on.... thus the Jooos take the brunt of it.
What idiots.

Many liberals believe that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. They befriend all groups that despise Christianity (their enemy), even if these groups conflict with each other. Nonetheless, these liberals will pledge their allegiance to whichever anti-Christian group they think is the strongest at the moment. In the past, it used to be Communism. Today and in the near future, it will be Islam.

“Abortion, gay “marriage” and eliminating Christianity and Judaism are the the sacraments of the liberal religion.”

Not to mention the creation of a testosterone-free America.

The Muslims are where they've always been. Christianity was at the same place the Muslims are at only with in the last 100 years.

Some would argue that it was only with in the last 30 years that Christianity, in the larger sense, moved beyond institutional violence. So don't be so quick to judge the two as being so radically different.

Religiously yes, but their methods, not so much.

An example
During the late 1930s and the 1940s, Jehovah's Witnesses attacked the Roman Catholic Church and other Christian denominations so vigorously that many states and municipalities passed laws against their inflammatory preaching.

History has proven the two are not so different.

It is what it is.Just my 2cts.

I'll never understand why people get so hung up about "theocracy." In a "theocracy," the laws have a legitimate basis.

I'm still trying to figure out the basis of the innumerable laws passed and advocated by people whose only ultimate reality is oblivion.

The difference between Islam and Christianity is ultimately due to the difference between the founder of Islam (Muhammad) and the founder of Christianity (Jesus Christ).

The moral behavior of these two men can hardly be more different. If Muslims persecute others, they are acting in accordance with their prophet’s teachings and behavior. If Christians do the same, they are acting in violation of their Lord’s teaching and behavior.

Good point.

Consider for a moment that Muslims and Christians that persecute others are acting as the "natural" man. They act the same because they are on the same level spiritually.

In order for a Christian to actually benefit from Christianity, they have to put it into practice. You have to actually do it. I guess that's why works is stressed so much through out the New Testament. Christianity gives a path to a higher level of peaceful living and eventually to God. But people have to put it into practice.

Islam on the other hand doesn't provide any such path. Which is why I believe it can't lead men to God. (Well that among other things...but you get the idea of where I'm coming from.)

“Christianity was at the same place the Muslims are at only with in the last 100 years.”

I’m curious, what was the Christian global “jihad” taking place in 1913? I missed all the Christian suicide bombings, kidnappings, rapes, and forced conversion stories in my history class. Wait, they never happened.

“...it was only with in the last 30 years that Christianity, in the larger sense, moved beyond institutional violence.”

Your “example” of institutional violence isn’t one. The JWs weren’t killing Catholics or visa versa on an INSTITUTIONAL level. Sorry, but your point is rubbish.

Your two cents aren’t worth a plug nickel.

That was one of the most ignorant posts that I have ever seen.

Welcome to freerepublic, it will be interesting for you to explain opinions like you just posted.

Well I think your two cents is uninformed rubbish. You have to go back to the 30’s and 40’s and list the JW’s (who are not Christian but a pseudo Christian Cult) to try to pull you moral equivalence and religious pluralism two pennies. You could at least have come to the new century and talked about Westboro Baptist, or went to the last and tried to say Timothy MCviegh was Christian or something - you did not have to go back 80 years to prove your ignorance on the matter. There have been over 22,000 Islamic Terrorist attacks sine 911 alone. How many Christian terrorist attacks can you dog up for that time frame?

There have been over 270 million killed by Islamic Jihad in 1400 years,, and the Christian Crusades was not more than a 500 year belated defensive response to Islamic Jihad.

And the difference is in the Holy Books. Christian don’t do what Muslims do because it is not commanded of them to do so. I’ve read the Koran now 4 times. I’m wondering if you’ve ever read it, and if you have ever read the whole bible. Most Christians have not so don’t feel bad if you have not. But you should compare the text.

“Islam is about 1,000 years behind everyone else”

Exactly. And the Catholic reformation began around 1550 - almost 500 years ago.

To: damonw; All
There have been over 270 million killed by Islamic Jihad in 1400 years,, and the Christian Crusades was not more than a 500 year belated defensive response to Islamic Jihad.

The 270 million killed number you site is as about as accurate as your grasp of the point I was making. Which is to say, you didn't remotely get either any where near right.

I'm not going to try to correct the majority of your post. Quite frankly, it would be too painful and I doubt it would do much good.

So, I'll go here, the 270 million killed by Jihad number has been debunked as fictitious.

A major part of this 270 number, (120 million) is derived from the African slave trade. 120 million is created by taking the total number slaves, which is approximately 25 million and estimated that 5 people died for every 1 slave sent. The number is totally bogus.

Also, the slave trade existed before Islam existed, so Islamic Jihad can't be responsible even for the true number of dead, which no one knows.

Now you're down to 150 million. 50 million of that number is derived from an article by Raphael Moore entitled "In Memory Of The 50 Million Victims Of The Orthodox Christian Holocaust." in a section called “History Of Asia Minor: 1894-1923”. Moore adds up all the Christian martyrs of the whole 20th Century.

Between the tolls exacted from prisons, concentration camps, forced marches and exiles, warfare, famine, and brutal military occupation, it is reasonable to conclude that up to 50 million Orthodox Christians have perished in the first eight decades of the twentieth century.

Moore takes this whole number and ascribes it to Jihad, which by his on admission, wasn't.

So now you're down to 100 million.

80 of that 100 million is pure speculation from the Hindu population decline. There's no evidence at all that 80 million Hindu's were victims of Jihad.

The last 20 million is Christians, Buddhists, and Jews.

There's no factual source for that number either.

Millions died? Yes, but to claim 270 million is laughable and that's being kind.

However, on the Christian side:

- The Thirty Years War - Catholic vs Protestant - dead approx 11 million
- The French religious wars - Catholic vs Protestant - dead approx 4 million
- The Crusades - Christian vs Islam - dead approx 3 million
- Spanish inquisition - dead 150,000
- Spanish armada - dead 2,000
- Lutheran slaughter of the Baptists for heresy - dead 30,000

All the torturing, burning at the stake, the burning of witches, oppression...etc. And those are just the highlights.

And in the 20th century, the Ku Klux Klan was a proclaimed "Christian" organization. The KKK reputation needs no explanation.

The Catholic vs Protestant war in Ireland.

So, yes, just a few decades ago, Christianity was a lot like Islam is today.

The difference is that countries in the west that were ruled by theocracy gave way to sectarian governments. The rule of sectarian law over religious law. Therefore people couldn't be executed for heresy any longer.

It was the same way in the Americas before the US was founded. The Puritans killed people for heresy.

Islamic nations are still under a theocratic rule, therefore they kill over religious differences. Just like Christianity did.

Go back and re-read my statement and see if you can figure out what the true point is, in regards to the JW's in that line and get back to me.

“Go back and re-read my statement and see if you can figure out what the true point is...”

You made an assertion about Christians of 100 and 30 years ago and then failed to provide factual evidence to support it. (Re: post #18) All your examples are 500 to 1000 years old, pre-reformation, not 100 years or 30 years like you first asserted - except the KKK (!!!!). Using the KKK as an example of institutional Christian violence is so silly on the face of it that you beclown yourself by even using that as an example.

You are playing an old, familiar game of making false statements and then providing weak or non-germane examples. That may work with other liberals or those who don’t know their history, but not with many here on FR.

I couldn't agree more.

[Me] So, yes, just a few decades ago, Christianity was a lot like Islam is today.

All your examples are 500 to 1000 years old,

Wow... no kidding. Caught that huh?

When showing that Islam and Christianity were a like in the past... I should probably use past examples. Go figure.

Using the KKK as an example of institutional Christian violence is so silly on the face of it

Perhaps you should go read up on the KKK and understand how it started and how large it became and how supported it was among portions of the US government and how it was protestant Christian organization... before you and Mark Twain have more in common. Really.

Islam has militant groups that go around in the name of their religion...ahh never mind you won't get it.

I don't know, maybe if you took some college classes or something on comparing religions you'd see common behaviors, common reasoning, common trends, etc...

You made an assertion about Christians of 100 and 30 years ago

errr I guess you missed that section on the Protestant/Catholic war in Ireland... /rollseyes

whatever...

[You] Your “example” of institutional violence isn’t one. The JWs weren’t killing Catholics or visa versa on an INSTITUTIONAL level. Sorry, but your point is rubbish.

The example I gave has little to do with the JWs. It's about the suppression of the 1rst amendment by those sympathetic to those being targeted by the JWs. Much like Islamic governments do the critics of Islam.
