…from Bishop E.W. Jackson.
Just wow.
It’s about time someone from the black community said this.

…as usual.

What can I say, that I haven’t already? Well, I guess there’s a lot. The MSM sucks ass. I probably already said that, but just in case.

Here are a few words of wisdom for your consumption.

Something Is Wrong
By Ben Stein

Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America.

Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America.

Now, it’s not just that no one bats an eye at the amazing truth that the United States is beaming TV ads all over Pakistan apologizing for a derogatory Internet trailer for a nonexistent movie demeaning the being that Muslims call “The Prophet Mohammed.” No one in the MSM even slightly hints that doing the kowtow in the same country that sheltered Osama bin Laden to a group that reveled in, delighted in the terrorism against American civilians and still provides the framework for the terrorist Haqqani network, might be humiliating and an insult to the memory of the great Americans who were murdered just last week in Libya.

No, we just take it in stride that our President and our Secretary of State will apologize to the people who hate us and want us dead. That’s not what I am referring to.
I am referring to something worse: Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it’s just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.

An excellent essay on Judaism and Christianity as they relate to Islam and violence.

Too often there are Muslim apologists that insist on equating the Christian Crusades as being the pillar of Christianity and “proof” that Christianity is as violent as Islam, if not more. Along with many Bible references of an historical nature, also taken out of context by the apologists and applied incorrectly to Judaism and Christianity.

No matter how much the Islam apologists try to do it, the Crusades were anything but an example of spreading Christianity by the sword. The Crusades were defensive responses to Islamic encroachment on Christian lands. It doesn’t take a historian to figure that out. It does take a moron a huge leap in conjecture and innuendo to make the case that the Crusades are similar or worse than the spread of Islam by the sword.

Read this for a really well done essay on the topic.

Raymond Ibrahim: Are Judaism and Christianity as Violent as Islam?
by Raymond Ibrahim

My essay from the Middle East Quarterly (Summer 2009 vol.16 num.3, p. 3-12):

“There is far more violence in the Bible than in the Qur’an; the idea that Islam imposed itself by the sword is a Western fiction, fabricated during the time of the Crusades when, in fact, it was Western Christians who were fighting brutal holy wars against Islam.”[1] So announces former nun and self-professed “freelance monotheist,” Karen Armstrong. This quote sums up the single most influential argument currently serving to deflect the accusation that Islam is inherently violent and intolerant: All monotheistic religions, proponents of such an argument say, and not just Islam, have their fair share of violent and intolerant scriptures, as well as bloody histories. Thus, whenever Islam’s sacred scriptures—the Qur’an first, followed by the reports on the words and deeds of Muhammad (the Hadith)—are highlighted as demonstrative of the religion’s innate bellicosity, the immediate rejoinder is that other scriptures, specifically those of Judeo-Christianity, are as riddled with violent passages.

According to Mike Huckabee it is. It doesn’t surprise me, the left has always felt that Christianity would be their doom.

Huckabee: Stimulus is ‘anti-religious’

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee warned supporters Tuesday that the $828 billion stimulus package is “anti-religious.”

In an e-mail that was also posted on his blog ahead of the Senate’s passage, Huckabee wrote: “The dust is settling on the ‘bipartisan’ stimulus bill and one thing is clear: It is anti-religious.”

The former Republican presidential candidate pointed to a provision in both the House and Senate versions banning higher education funds in the bill from being used on a “school or department of divinity.”

“You would think the ACLU drafted this bill,” Huckabee said. “For all of the talk about bipartisanship, this Congress is blatantly liberal.”
