The M Word

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or have been blissfully unaware of what has been going on in Washington, DC, recently, you’ve heard about the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando committed by a gay Muslim who swore allegiance to ISIS/ISIL before the shooting. And if you’ve been following the media coverage of the shooting, you’ve probably heard the following people, organizations, and ideas blamed for the shooting.

– The NRA
– Donald Trump
– Christians
– House Republicans
– The gun lobby
– Gun manufacturers
– Homophobia
– North Carolina’s bathroom law

Notice the one person who isn’t being blamed for the shooting? The actual shooter himself. You know, the presumed gay, but most definitely Muslim extremist who committed the crime? Yeah, that guy.

The silence regarding the obvious criminal’s actual motivations behind the Orlando shooting is breathtakingly deafening. It’s almost as if people are scared to mention the shooter’s religious affiliation, even though it’s the most likely explanation for his actions.

Now, let me be clear here. I am not saying all Muslims are terrorists. In fact, I believe most Muslims are peaceful and want to be left alone to worship in peace. No, Muslims are not all sleeper cells awaiting for a secret code in a package of Eggo waffles.

But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned at the number of Muslims who either vocally or silently support their extremist brethren.

While the media and the Left try to find their scapegoat du jour, I did a little digging on various killings committed by Muslims, and boy did I find a bunch! According to TheReligionofPeace.com, there have been 74 instances of Muslims taking American lives since 1972. That’s close to 2 a year. Granted, when compared to the alleged number of mass shootings in America, it’s not as impressive.

Ah, but this is where things get interesting. After a bit more digging, I found of those 74 instances, 3 directly involved Muslims killing homosexuals. Now, 3 in 44 years isn’t bad.

One tiny problem. Those 3 have occurred…since 2014.

And they’re not just happening in right-leaning cities. One of these killings happened in Seattle, Washington, home of the Seahawks, Starbucks, and the sucky $15 per hour minimum wage. Even in the Leftist version of Utopia, Islamic extremism has taken lives.

But tell us again how strengthening gun control laws will help.

The Left, as usual, is looking in the wrong direction when it comes to the Orlando shooting. They’re looking for excuses when they need to be looking at a clear trend that has started to spike in recent years. Until America gets over its fears of being called Islamophobic, we are going to see more attacks on its citizens, gay or straight.

And if you’re gay, bi, lesbian, trans, etc., you should be at the forefront of this matter. Nearly 50 people lost their lives as a direct result of a Muslim extremist. I see groups about gays against Islamophobia cropping up, but not nearly enough wanting to take on Muslim extremism with the same vigor you take on Christians. And before you tell me Christians and Muslims aren’t that different with regards to homosexuality, let me point out something.

Christians may disagree with your lifestyle, but most aren’t going to try to kill you over it. With Muslims, it’s a little less certain. Put another way, some Christians will try to “pray the gay away,” while some Muslims will try to stone the gay to death. There is a big, big difference between the two.

The Root Cause

The Islamic terrorist attacks in France and elsewhere around the world is the direct result of the decline of Western Civilization. Our civilization, like it or not, was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and ethics. Although earlier movements played a part it was Christendom that spurred our civilization forward to all corners of the earth and into space beyond.

Through Christianity we bring about the end of feudalism, the rise of science, and the beginnings of true freedom. Nowhere on Earth have these blessings of Christendom been so expressed than in the United States. The first and only nation that at one time was the exception to all of history.

The founding of a civilization on the Holy Bible is what makes Western Culture superior to anything the world has ever known. Although cultures can border with other cultures, and have trade with other cultures, they cannot co-exist in the same areas. One must give out to the other.

Islamic Culture is founded on the teachings in the Quran. The Quran and the Holy Bible represent two different, distinct, and incompatible worldviews. Within the Quran, the holy book of all Muslims, Allah never came to Earth as a man and to believe so is blasphemy, with death as the punishment. Within the Holy Bible, the Word of God. God came to Earth, born of man, died for all of mankind’s sins, and rose again. This is the foundation and cornerstone of Christian belief.

When Western Civilization in Europe embraced Socialism after the end of World War II, they changed and moved away from the Culture that caused them to rise to power in the first place.

They opened the door to multiculturalism. Where immigrants do not integrate or assimilate into the mainstream Western Culture. This leads eventually to strife and conflict. And that is what Europe has seen in the attacks in Paris and the Russian jet that was shot down.

Islamic Culture and Western Culture are virtual opposites of one another. The advantage of Islamic Culture is they do fight for what they believe in against any opposition. Western Culture has lost its way and no longer fights for its survival.

If this continues, Western Civilization will be conquered and replaced by another. One that does not represent freedom, one that has no salvation other than death, one that does not celebrate life or champions good over evil, one that encourages wars between its factions. This is and has been the Culture of Islam for over 1400 years. It isn’t going to change.
