Thanks again, Rick. Let's remember to find our help in the right place.

My Nigerian neighbor (and Roman Catholic priest) told me that in order to find peace with Islam in Nigeria, the church had to take a tough stand. When they "turned the other cheek", violence continued. When they responded, "If you burn a church, we will burn two mosques." the violence stopped.

(He also told me that the recent violence in Jos was NOT primarily a religious conflict but was cultural and economic in nature.)

Hello Brother Rick,
Concerning the part about confronting evil with evil I would like you to consider this short couple verses written by kind David concerning how God works.

2 samuel, 22:26-27
To the faithful you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity.
To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile.
There is no need to apologize for attacking evil and standing against the wicked and their continuous murder of innocent men, women, and children.
To vanquish them would not be repaying evil for evil.
If our great country had not fought against tyranny and oppression we would have been conquered long ago.

Christ warned us of this and again and again the evils of Islam proves that this is a false religion. If we see someone walking down the street killing people do we just stand by and wait to be killed? I am no expert in my faith but, I do not think "turn your other cheek" means to stand and be killed. My dad was a Marine Drill Instructor and we grew up with the motto God, Family, Country, Corp. In my Corp we say "GET SOME". The first saying from my dad still is planted in me but, It is time to GET SOME. It would be nice to see all the Catholic Clergy pray the prayer of exorcism on these possessed people. God be with us.

I don't think prosletyzing works in our largely secular culture. Remember the injunction not to toss pearls before swine?

Islam increases by using terror as its mechanism. Look at any conflict around the world and there are Muslims in it.

The Koran describes the slaughter in Medina very clearly. It set the example for all Muslims. They are enjoined by the Koran to kill infidels. They don't have a choice if they're devout Muslims.

When you read the Koran, follow the verses carefully. By the principle of "abrogation" the earlier verses about peace, love and tolerance are always and everywhere ABROGATED by the later verses which tell good Muslims to kill in order to gain Paradise.

The descriptions of hell are so numerous in the later verses that they become mind-numbing.

Every citizen needs their own copy of the Constitution, the Koran, and the definitive book of interpretation of Shariah Law called "The Reliance of the Traveler". All are available on Amazon.

The way to defeat Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood (which has reached into the higher realms of our permanent govt bureaucracy) is to stand against any incursions of Shariah Law. That is the way they plan to tunnel through, the same way the socialists tunneled thru via Marx and now own the joint.

Right now the socialists and the Muslims are working together but when push comes to shove, the socialists will be the first to go. Totalitarians cannot bear one another.

Oh, and no more calling Islam a religion. It's a totalitarian political system. Judaism is a religion. Christianity is a religion. Islam is not. Pasting "Allah" on top of a brutal, murderous system doesn't make it a religion anymore than Nazism was a religion. BTW, Hitler was envious of the totalitarian control of Islam.

Catholicism is not a denomination.

Rick

Dolly, I’m afraid you’ll have to expound… Catholicism is most certainly a denomination within Christianity…

Help me here with your comments…

Dolly

"Every citizen needs their own copy of the Constitution, the Koran, and the definitive book of interpretation of Shariah Law called "The Reliance of the Traveler". All are available on Amazon."

Confirms my suspicion that for some Americans the Constitution has become a "holy" thing. It's not. It's just a constitution. The Bible should precede the constitution.

Dolly

Rick -

"And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18 "

The Catholic Church is taproot and source of all of the other (ever-growing) denominations. They are denominations, all broken off from the source. She is not a denomination. More here: http://www.catholic.com/library/pillar.asp

It seems to me that the splintering of the Christian churches is part of the problem of "niceness". It is "not nice" to suggest that all of the Christian denominations are mere offshoots of the source. If we can't even discuss that, then it will be pretty interesting to watch all of those various Christians trying to somehow convince a confused world that Islam is not just "one more way to believe." We can't have our cake and eat it too. Either the Christians become one, again (and Benedict XVI seems to be trying to do that) or they fall before a united Islam, which does not have "denominations" per se. Catholic is catholic - universal - even Eastern Rite churches are still "Catholic". Islam is Islam. They may have tribes, but they are not broken into 2500 offshoots. Protestantism, Mormonism, etc, are "denominations." Worry about uniting the branches back to the taproot, or the battle with Islam is pointless.

Rick

Thanks Dolly... I see your point (on the term denomination)...

Leslie

Where does a person stick the Greek Orthodox on the tree? (re: denominations)

Dolly

Russian and Greek Orthodox are like the "tribes" of the Islamists. They're still catholic.

Leslie

I see. So the two groups are living in communion with each other? How did there get to be two tribes in the first place?

Dymphna

No, the Constitution of the US isn't holy. It's the most important of our Founding documents. It's vital to know what it contains since those Amendments are under direct attack from Shariah Law, which the Muslim Brotherhood will use to tunnel through what remains of our Republic.

If nothing else, it will be useful to fully understand what we have lost. For example, ask the next three people you meet what "government rights" are.

We did this with our Yale-lawyer Congressional Rep. He proceeded to tell us what they were until we reminded him that only individuals have rights. But he's a Soros-funded useful idiot who admitted (they have it on YouTube) that the American people need to stop Congress or the spending will just continue.

Maybe someday the Constitution will be a relic -- something people go to look at like we do the Magna Carta today. There are actual originals still extant!

I hold those two documents to be vitally important, but not sacred. The rights contained therein are sacred and God-given, though.
