Let’s begin with the truth, because the subject matter deserves it. Thanks to an entire political party, all Muslims have been unfairly labeled as ‘terrorists’ and supporters of ‘radical Islam.’ This is not unlike me claiming that all southern states are racist. Well, maybe that’s not such a great comparison.
Seriously, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and other religions could say the same thing about Christians. Not only is America inflicted with the Ky Klux Klan, the Ayrian Brotherhood, and others, there are at least six other Christian terrorism groups around the world.
First term Republican Congressman Clay Higgins, from Louisiana made the following statement after Saturday’s attacks in London.
“Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identity them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”
Higgins didn’t stop there; he had to express his belief in Christian extremism.
He also labeled the world as fighting a holy war, saying “all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror.”
How does Higgins feel about the “Army of God?” Members of this radical Christian group have murdered nurses and doctors who assist women with legal abortions. I’m sorry; that was a foolish question. If he’s a Christian extremist, he probably supports the killings in denial of a woman’s rights.
Then there’s ‘Eastern Lightning,’ a.k.a. the Church of the Almighty God. This group exists in China, believes that the ‘end of time’ is near, and they are obligated to kill as many ‘demons’ as possible. They have focused on women and children, but also other Christians they consider heretics.
The ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’ was founded by Joseph Kony in Uganda. It’s extreme violence can only be compared to the Islamic group, Boko Haram. They have committed thousands of murders and kidnappings and use young men to fight in their ‘army;’ all in the name of Christianity.
The ‘National Liberation Front of Tripura’ is active in India. They have expressed their rejection of all other religions; claiming that Christianity is the only true religion. Hey are responsible for the deaths of Hindus who refuse to convert.
The ‘Concerned Christians’ was founded by Monte “Kim” Miller in Denver. Although he is a Christian extremist, one of his principal beliefs is that all Muslims must be driven out of Israel. In 1998 about 60 members of his cult suddenly disappeared. At least 14 of the reappeared in Israel where they were arrested for plotting to kill Muslims.
The ‘Phineas Priesthood’ was founded because of the existence of the Ku Klux Klan. It is not only a Christian Extremist group, they are white supremacists. Atheists are allowed to join them, but only if they are white. Their ‘religious’ activities include bombing abortion clinics, shooting up government buildings, and robbing banks.
I am not excusing Al Qaeda or ISIS for their cowardly and inhuman acts. However, I reject all religions, but strongly believe that all men and women should be allowed to practice the faith of their choice. Christians and Muslims who stray from the teachings of Jesus Christ and Muhammad are the most dangerous people in the world.
Higgins is another faux-Christian who supports the Christian religious right in its efforts to establish Christianity as our nation’s one religion. Not only is this a direct violation of the first amendment, it is an abomination to most Americans. Christianity is in decline in our nation as younger men and women refuse to believe in fairy tales. Atheism and the religion of Islam are growing.
You can’t stop the future, but we can reject the past.
