ISLAM: WHAT DID MUHAMMAD TEACH vs WHAT WE HAVE MADE UP
I just suffered through the last conversation I will listen to where an ignorant person tries to explain why the ‘terrorists’ are perverting Islam and how Islam is actually a ‘peaceful’ religion. THAT IS NOT WHAT MUHAMMAD TAUGHT!
To those who believe the ‘terrorists’ have perverted Islam, I say that it is a violation of Natural Law, the principles of sound reasoning and basic civic duty to:
— Speak from ignorance — especially when your words place others in mortal jeopardy!
— Refuse to educate yourself!
— Reject correction when it is offered by those who know more than you!
— Reject the truth once you have learned it!
If I sound angry, I apologize. I am not angry; I am frustrated. For the last three days, I listened to radio talk show host, Mike Broomhead, as he admitted he does not know Islam, then went ahead and old his audience that the ‘terrorists’ believe in a perversion of Islam. According to Broohead, the ‘radical’ Muslims have perverted the teachings of Muhammad much the same way the Westboro Baptist church has perverted the teaching of Christ. Then today, Broomhead put a Westernized Sunni Muslim on the radio to support his claims that the ‘terrorists’ are following a perverted teaching of Islam. Even Beck, who claims to have written his book, “It Is About Islam,” has told his audience that the ‘terrorists’ are following a perverted understanding of Islam. Well, I am telling anyone who will listen, these people are all wrong about Islam and the teachings of Muhammad (and several of them are flat-out lying about it).
The root of the problem is that Jesus told His followers that those who live by the sword will die by the sword, while Muhammad boasted that he and his followers would be victorious by the sword. The two religions are negations of each other. This means you cannot make direct comparisons between them. If you do, you will be wrong — period! I have written that it is against Natural Law and the principles of logic and sound reasoning to accept heresay when you can go directly to the source. This is why I ignored what I was hearing about Islam from our politicians, the news and from commentators and took the time to read the Qur’an for myself instead — just like Jefferson and our founders did. And, just like Jefferson and our founders, I discovered the truth about Islam is much different from what these people have been telling us.
Did you know that the Qur’an is a mess?
