Islamophobia as a way of life…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 22, 2007

It’s All Hog Wash!

It is not a religion of peace, it is a religion of extreme hate. How can a peaceful person sanction members of their faith violently killing innocent men, women, children and even babes in arms. Even worse they will sanction the sacrifice of their own children in the killing of people they don’t even know. How can anyone harbor that much hate? Because they are told that only through “Jihad”, through holy war, can they hope to enter heaven. This is instilled within them from a young age and is combined with the incessant teaching of hate. If they can’t quite bring themselves to be a violent martyr or murderer they become a demonstrator or a passive enabler. A few become silent “moderates”.

 

If all this weren’t bad enough keep in mind it is also the prime tenant of Islam that everyone in the world must become Muslim and be subject to Shari’ah, Islamic law. Most people resist Christian evangelism simply by refusing to listen. How do you resist Islamic evangelism? The first step is to recognize the hog wash about Islam being a peaceful religion.


This is one of the most hateful, inaccurate and Islamophobic blogs I have ever come across. Thank you George W Bush for making it not only acceptable to be this Islamophobic, but indeed making it a way of life.

I read this and shiver, because it is reminiscent of  the kind of inflamed religious propaganda that f.i Martin Luther spewed about Jews or the Iranian President are spewing about Jews. I am sorry if this offends any Xtian, but this is exactly why so many people are opposed to any kind of Evangelical Xtianism – its hatred for anything that is not Xtian and its violent teaching about how to oppose that which is not Xtian.

For years I have been debating Xtians about the violence, hatred and bloodshed perpetrated against Jews, Pagans,  Muslims and Atheists by Xtians using the Xtian Doctrine as a weapon. Over and over I have been told that “Xtianism cannot be judge by the actions of some few mislead professors…” by Xtians of all kinds – also the kinds represented by the quote above.

Then I come across this kind of hatred – pulling all of Islam and all Muslims into one big bunch of hate filled  bloodthirsty monsters – and this is not the only place – I have seen it in Xtian Bible Study Groups on-line, in news items and in other blogs, and cannot help but feel that those who told me not to judge by the actions of a few are nothing but hypocrites.

Any religious doctrine can be distorted, any religious path can be used to further megalomania and fascism – however peace-loving it really is.

If Buddhism had been the prevalent religion among the terrorists that blew up WTC and the trains in London and Madrid, George W Bush and his hate-filled Disciples would have been ranting about what violent hog wash Buddhism is.

As it is Islamophobia has become a way of life among Right-Wing, Evangelical religious people, and I doubt it’s going to change any time soon.

  1. Shield of Truth is indeed a horribly Islamophobic site, and IMO does not in the least represent what Christians are supposed to believe and practice. Unfortunately it is far from the worst and far from the only site like this — I have written about sites that openly call for trashing the Constitution in order to outlaw the religion of Islam, to imprison any adherants in concentration camps, to forcibly deport all Muslim-Americans, to “nuke” Mecca, and the like.

    There is a long list of the worst of these (and I’m far from finished) at http://hatewatchhallofshame.blogspot.com

    The site exposes all types of hatred, no matter what the ideology that is being used as an excuse for hatred. It exposes Christian, Muslim, Jewish, atheist, neo-nazi, marxist, secular, nationalist, you name it, if they meet the definition (shown in the FAQs link) of hate speech then we work to expose them.

    Thank you for your efforts to help expose and eliminate this scourge of hatred that is spreading a great sickness of the soul among mankind.

  2. Rev. Jim Sutter,

    Thank you for your comment and sentiment of support. It is very much appreciated.

    It is very interesting that sites such as Shield of Truth manage to stay up, considering that they are catering only to their own ilk.

    Thank you for being a voice of reason and resistance 🙂

    Hmm, let’s see…you shoot yourself in the foot right off the bat by revealing your hatred of George Bush….

    Then you reveal your hatred of Christians by refusing to spell it properly…

    Seems you’re a bit blind to your own prejudices.

    As far as I read in the quoted article, he’s guilty of at most painting with the same broad-sweeping brush that you yourself wield.

    (No, I’m *not* a Christian. I have followed Sufism.)

  4. So disliking the policies of GW Bush is automatically hating the guy? I hate his policies – I don’t know the man, so I can’t say if I like him or not – so no foot-shooting taking place here.

    As for the alleged hatred for Xtians: You might want to read this article, before YOU let your prejudices expose your ignorance, not only of the practices of other religions – in this case Judaism, but of me, as you have apparently NOT read the below.

    On the Matter of “Xian” and “G-d”

    About painting with a broad brush…I actually limited it to “Right-Wing, Evangelical religious people”, after speaking about Martin Luther, and things I have run across on-line, I think it’s very clear that contrary to what you allege I am not speaking of all Xians – just those holding to blood-thirsty, murderous, islamophobic doctrines – to which I say: If the shoe fits – wear it.
