I view today’s “Christianity” as largely responsible for the spread of Islam in this country. In my view, Muslims are merely filling the void left by biblically illiterate and morally confused Christians who are more interested in getting ahead and getting along than getting the gospel out. When our goals and values become indistinguishable from those of the world, what have the enemies of Christ to fear? – Paul Proctor, News with Views
From Nashville to New York, there has been a lot of angry opposition lately to the building of new mosques in America. Considering the many Islamic attacks and attempts the world has had to endure, is it any wonder?
On May 23rd, the Associated Press reported the following:
“A group of 40 Muslim families that had hoped to build a mosque in the affluent Nashville suburb of Brentwood has withdrawn its rezoning request.
Jaweed Ansari, trustee for the proposed Islamic Center of Williamson County, told The Tennessean that the families were not prepared for the anger from neighbors that the plan excited.”
Yeah, well a lot of families weren’t prepared for the anger from Muslims on 911 either; so, we feel your pain.
On July 3rd, The Tennessean updated readers on the proposed construction of another mosque near Murfreesboro in an article that began this way:
“Opponents of construction of a new Islamic mosque south of Murfreesboro plan to march on Main Street on their way to the Rutherford County Courthouse on July 14.
‘The people have spoken clearly that they don’t want this mosque proposal that is before them,’ march organizer Kevin Fisher said during a Friday phone interview.”
And, then there was the anti-mosque demonstration in New York as reported on June 7th by CNN:
“Protesters gathered in lower Manhattan mid-day Sunday to demonstrate against plans to build a mosque near the site of Ground Zero, where the twin towers of the World Trade Center were destroyed by Islamist hijackers on September 11, 2001.”
You see, civilized people conduct peaceful marches to publicly protest things they oppose rather than fly planes into buildings and blow people up. Call it your religion, but the God of Abraham said: “Thou shalt not kill” and “Vengeance is mine,” meaning murder is unacceptable. Click here to continue.
