  • Why Islam Probably Can't Be Reformed

    Islam is a deadly totalitarian political system masquerading as a religion. Few in the West know this and/or are willing to admit it. Being honest about this doesn't mean hating Muslims. It means understanding the religion and why it is dangerous to the rights and freedoms and way of life in the West, and why that danger probably isn't going to go away. The last Pope seems to have understood this. At Asia Times, Spengler writes:

    CNN host says Michael Phelps shouldn’t carry US flag, but a ‘Muslim’ should . . . Americans are furious (Full Title) Liberals wanted U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps to give up the honor of carrying the American flag and leading his country’s athletes at the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympic games Friday night. He’s the wrong color and the wrong sex. After Phelps was chosen by his fellow Olympians, the U.S. Olympic Team tweeted: But coming in a close second to Phelps in the team’s vote was Ibtihaj Muhammad, a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot.

    Is Islam a Danger to the Religious Freedom of the U.S. and the World? By Fr. Marvin Deutsch MM. Today there is a big controversy going on in our country about Islam. This has been going on for a long time but today it is accentuated by the killing of 49 people at Orlando by a lone Islamic terrorist and also the denial by our president that Islam is a religion of violence. The president maintains that Islam is a religion of peace and those who kill and terrorize are acting contrary to the very meaning and nature of what...

As we have shown in the previous parts of this series, there is a sharp difference in the chapters of the Koran revealed in the first 13 years of Muhammad’s revelations in Mecca and the chapters revealed in Medina during the final 10 years of his life. The difference in the Meccan and Medinan chapters of the Koran was also a turning point for Islamic teachings on the role and status of women....

    The assembled Presbyterians no doubt thought they were being wonderfully open-minded and ecumenical; they did not realize that Wajidi Said was openly proselytizing for Islam. “Lead us on the straight path” is straight from the Fatihah, the Opening, the Qur’an’s first chapter and the most common and oft-repeated prayer in Islam. Islamic scholars identify the straight path with Islam itself. And in invoking “Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad,” Said sounded beautifully ecumenical himself to the ranked Presbyterians, aglow in their bloomin’ primness, but in reality he was reflecting the Islamic belief that those figures and the other Biblical...

    When Muslims are involved in recommending a reformation they come across to me as heretics and apostates that can't abide by the religion they were born into. Instead of leaving Islam they want to change it to make it more palatable to modern thinking and take out the murderous parts of Islam, and to tone it down to where, as Rodney King would say , where we could all get along regardless of our religious beliefs or non-beliefs. Having read a lot about the fundamentals of Islam I am of the conclusion it can't be reformed to make it less...

This event is pivotal, marking the beginning of the Incarnation and God’s plan of salvation.

    NPR touts Muhammad’s example as means to counter “extremism” This article is more ridiculous than most. Muhammad loved dates, melons and cucumbers and that’s supposed to make Muslims less susceptible to “extremist propaganda”? His non-snoring blowing sound while sleeping is supposed to make Muslims “emphasize charity and respect for other faiths”? “Hassan argues that if Muslims had more knowledge of how the Prophet Muhammad actually lived and what he taught, they would be less vulnerable to extremist propaganda.

    Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves (Mt. 7:15).Would "false prophets" include Muhammad? It's an impolitic question to ask in these politically correct times, but, thanks to political correctness these are also highly dangerous times. Since a good deal of the danger emanates from the religion Muhammad founded, it seems reasonable to ask if he was a false prophet. And if he was, does that mean that Islam is a false religion? And if it is, why are Catholic leaders so keen on declaring their solidarity with Islam?It's a case...

    Most of the postings concerning Islam on the internet are about the atrocities being committed around the world. But we need to take more time to explain WHY these things happen. Even though the violent commands are in the Quran, many western Muslims discount them, brushing them off as not literal. So it is necessary to go to the hadith to see how Muhammad himself interpreted these things. This needs to be communicated widely to Muslims themselves to bring them out of the dark. Like many Christians who have not studied the Bible, most Muslims have never really studied the...

    Born in Mecca, in western Arabia, Muhammad (ca. 570–632), last in the line of Judeo-Christian prophets, received his first revelation in 610. Muslims believe that the word of God was revealed to him by the archangel Gabriel in Arabic, who said, "Recite in the name of thy Lord …" (Sura 96). These revelations were subsequently collected and codified as the Qur’an (literally "recitation" in Arabic), the Muslim holy book. As the source of Muslim faith and practice, the Qur’an describes the relationship between an almighty and all-knowing God and his creations. The Qur’an also maintains that all individuals are responsible...

    Inbreeding is common in Islamic culture.  It’s been going on since Mohammed sanctioned first-cousin marriages 1,400 years ago.  I guess there’s nothing like getting marriage advice handed down from one generation to the next that originated with a lunatic pedophile. PJ Media reports that because Mohammed encouraged inbreeding, many Muslims regard intermarriage as part of their religion.  First-cousin marriages are also viewed as a source of social status, as a means of keeping wealth within the family, and as a form of control.  In addition, it is a vehicle to safeguard families against the influence of non-Muslim outsiders, which...

    Breitbart News previously reported that former Marine Jon Ritzheimer and fellow bikers will be holding a “Draw Muhammad” contest Friday night at 6 p.m. Islamists now warn participants not to bring their children with them if they love them, promising blood spill if Muhammad is drawn.According to Gateway Pundit, “Islamists have promised to murder the attendees [at the contest] tonight in Phoenix.” GP shows screenshots of various tweets from @DAWLATNAH–some with an ISIS flag avatar and others with an Islamic cleric avatar. One tweet, sent May 28 at 10:14 pm from an account that has since been suspended, says, “WARNING...

    Bill Maher spoke with Ayaan Hirsi Ali tonight about a recurring topic of his, radical Islam, and spent quite a lot talking about liberal reactions to it. Maher brought up how liberals have targeted Hirsi Ali and may have also had the Muhammad cartoon contest on the brain when he asked why so many liberals, who normally “hate blaming the victim,” do so when it comes to radical Islam. Hirsi Ali said she’s not sure why liberals do that

    Rev. Franklin Graham articulated [1] what many Christians (and others) are thinking about the now-notorious Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest that Pamela Geller and I organized in Garland, Texas, and that was attacked by jihadis: “The organizers of the cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, had the constitutional right to do what they did—but just because we have the ‘right’ to do something doesn’t make it right! As a Christian I’m offended when people mock my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Muslims are offended when people mock their faith. I disagree with Islam. But just because I disagree, I’m...

    We’re at a turning point. I genuinely believe that this is a moment on which we’ll reflect… and the people who refused to fight back, who refused to run a damn cartoon, will find themselves on the wrong side of history. WARNING: Mildly Offensive Language DOUBLE WARNING: Video EXTREMELY offensive to Muslims.
  • Supreme Court Frieze Brings Objection (Muhammad Image)

    Offended by a depiction of the Prophet Muhammad etched in marble inside the U.S. Supreme Court chamber, a coalition of Muslim organizations is quietly pushing to have the artwork sandblasted into propriety. A petition signed by 16 groups across the country has asked that the larger-than-life frieze of great lawgivers be altered "in the spirit of religious tolerance and pluralism" because Islamic tradition discourages artistic renderings of people, and showing the face of Muhammad is considered particularly offensive. The Supreme Court refused to comment publicly on the controversy, but coalition spokesman Nihad Awad said there already has been one "fruitful"...

    Americans will defend to the death — and literally had to — Pamela Geller’s right to disseminate images of the Prophet Muhammad. The First Amendment applies even to irresponsible provocateurs. A Geller-organized event in Texas over the weekend included inviting artists to draw images of Muhammad, an act that has provoked deadly attacks by some Islamists. In explaining her rationale, Geller pointed to an Iranian Holocaust cartoon contest that drew nearly 1,000 entries, saying “We need to make a similar show of strength of what is right.” Which extended to a drawing of Muhammad anally impaled on a pencil up...
