Tell me why?
I’ve got a few questions I think are worth examination. Why is it that a Christian who holds to their faith/biblical principles are viewed as an extremist? Why are we called intolerant for opposing homosexual acts and the murder of the unborn? Why are Muslims called religious and faithful to Islam? Muslims are opposed to homosexuality, they are oppressive to women, some still practice circumcision of women, we see weekly reports of sanctioned abuse of women – why are they favored and extolled by liberals even as Christians are ridiculed?
Muslim actress Marzieh Vafamehr, has been sentenced to one year in jail and 90 lashes for her appearance in the film “My Tehran for Sale.” Muslim father’s and brother’s murder daughter’s and sisters for dating non-Muslims right here in the United States – but liberals call us intolerant. Why?
Why are liberals silent on the abuse Muslim women suffer routinely? There is a form of inculcated oppression inherent in Islam that would not remotely be tolerated in Christianity, but Christian women who treat their husbands with respect, are called brainwashed and abused, by NOW and similar groups. Christian women are not required or expected to walk several paces behind the man, but in Islam women are little more than possessions.
Muslim women are punished and held accountable if they are raped or molested, they have strict dress codes and codes of conduct rigidly enforced by men, but women’s groups are silent about it.
As a matter of fact liberal women’s groups specifically and liberals in general are silent on the majority of harmful and potentially deadly environments of women right here in the United States. Have you heard NOW or any groups claiming concern for the women or doing anything to get women out of forced prostitution, the growing numbers of human trafficking, and the abuse those women suffer? We know Christian groups are labeled and smeared with pejoratives for opposing pornography. Truth be known, Christians and church groups have been on the front lines of trying to help those who are ensnared in same. But, a Christian family is fined and oppressed for having a bible study in their private home, while the very people responsible for murdering thousands and for plotting against America, are supported in their desire to plant a Muslim flag on the site of their greatest act of terror.
Public school children participate in Muslim feast and holidays, but Christmas is not permitted in public schools, the Pilgrims are presented as antagonistic and oppressive to the Indians. White Christian groups are targeted as evil and responsible for slavery – but Muslims, who are in fact responsible for slaves arriving here, are taught as the true religion of blacks. Keep in mind, it was Muslims who were the encouragers and buyers of captured Africans by the Dahomey and Ashanti tribes, which are modern day Benin and Ghana.
I could go on and on, but you get my point. My question is, why?
