A collection of essays and observations will show that liberalism and secularism will destroy Christianity and the Western Civilisation if it is not stopped in its tracks.
The Founding Fathers were Secularists.
Posted on July 16, 2012 by JustNorrik
I hear Christians and those on the “right” making the claim of how we should return our country to the way it was when the founding fathers started it. As if the founding fathers created the United States to be a Christian nation, they didn’t. Most of the people who came to America prior to the creation of the United States and after, will cite their coming to the US for economic and/or religious freedom and this is well documented. In the case of religious freedom, one has to ask: if the United States was a Christian nation and Europe was mainly Christian/Catholic what was the need for “religious freedom”? If you’re obeying God’s word according to Christianity, what is the need to create a secular country somewhere else where religion is separated from government? wouldn’t they want Christianity to be the state religion?
This raises two points, the first is if a group of people are wanting religious freedom, and it’s within the same religion, then how bad does the religious belief have to be to want to escape it? Was religious persecution that bad in Europe that people wanted to leave? oh I guess it was, so what has changed in 200 years? Well that same religious persecution has moved to the United States. It’s pretty obvious the founding fathers wanted a secular society so as to avoid the religious tyranny that was pervasive in Europe in the early 18th century to come to the United States. With a monarchy religion was able to run rampant almost unchecked across Europe. It not only gave the monarchy tighter control over the citizens but it also gave the church power, and two masters are two masters too many according to the reason’s of our founding fathers.
The second point of this, is how religious people are so quick to define the founding fathers and what they want without giving it much to any thought. The founding fathers could have very easily made Christianity the state religion IF they were the devout Christians they’ve been made out to be. But we know by the laws of our country, this isn’t the case, so what possible explanation is there? We know if they were devout, we’d live in a Christian state, but we don’t, so the answer is something else. We live in a secular country because the founding fathers were not sold on Christianity, some were Christian no doubt, but not enough of them to vote in existence the US being a Christian Nation. So it’s safe to say 3/4th of them were not devout enough to make the United States a Christian nation.
So what’s the reason for making the claim “the founding fathers created a Christian nation..” when we know by the laws of our country this isn’t the case?
I think it’s one of many routes to regain the religious control pre-20th century that the church acquired through intimidation, extortion and sexual/gender/racial fear mongering. The classic example is how long it took women to gain equality in a so-called “Christian Society”. It’s obvious that secularism had a certain level of impact on groups seeking equality over the past 100 years. The more secular a society is the more equality plays a positive role, and conversely the more religious a society is the less equality plays a positive role and in some cases plays a negative role altogether.
Knowing this just causes me to face palm every time I hear a Christian or “right-wing” politician or supporter say “Our Founding Fathers were Christians and they…”

The Birth of Secularism in the United States
During the birth of the United States, the Founding Fathers gathered all of the injustices that they experienced under England’s control, and took many steps to ensure that the same violations would never be experienced by the citizens of the new United States. With state sanctioned religions being common in Europe, the Founding Fathers recognized the need for the right to practice any religion you desire. This idea has now been interpreted to mean that faith and religion should be absent from government life and American culture. Based off of various sources from the Founding Fathers, this is clearly not what they intended. This paper will examine that they relied on their Creator for strength during the Revolutionary War and they felt that religion would need to remain strong in American society for the nation to grow and remain strong.
Colonial America was an eclectic blend of various faiths from all over the world. This led to a need to protect that right for each citizen to practice the faith they prefer or the right to not practice any religion at all. Thomas Jefferson was one of the most prominent authors of such legislation. He was the sponsor of a bill which established religious freedom for all Americans. In there, he created the right to where no person would be forced to attend or support a church. In that same bill, he defended the religious independence that each American has, which allows them to worship without persecution.
There was also a common fear that religion would be used as a means of retaining authority by the leader of the state. For thousands of years, rulers have given their authority some type of divine backbone which reinforces their claim to leadership. This was done in ancient times by claiming that the leader himself was a god. In eighteenth century England, this was done by making the King the leader of the Anglican Church. By this act, if anyone wanted to oppose the government, they would also be opposing the official state religion. By allowing freedom of religion, there would never be one official American religion and therefore, Americans would run less of a chance of one day being ruled by a tyrant.
Benjamin Franklin was one of the most outspoken members of the Founding Fathers when it came for the need for religion in government. He was quite influential compared to his peers because Franklin was an admitted deist. He was a Christian no doubt, but he never claimed ownership by an organized and established church. He believed in his Creator, but also believed that one could be virtuous and moral without belonging to an established religion. His idea of generic religion was very much American in the sense that everyone could share the same beliefs and still retain their religious heritage.
Even though Franklin separated virtue from religion, he did express that if religion ever failed, morality and prolific kindness would also diminish. Franklin, along with his fellow delegates prior to independence, was very reliant upon their faith to give them the courage to stand up to the throne. It was only then after the Revolutionary War had been won that there was debate in Philadelphia whether or not to allow the presence of religion into government activities. Franklin made a very bold speech in which he asked the Congress if they felt that they could continue without God’s help. He then addressed only the members who served with him in the Continental Congress prior to the Revolutionary War. He asked them if they had forgotten that “powerful friend.” He made it quite clear that his sentiment was that if they did not have their Creator on their side, they would not be in the state of liberty to which they had achieved. This request came after an objection to the practice of saying a prayer prior to the start of business of the delegation. His words were obviously powerful because even to this day, Congress begins every session with a prayer.
The drive for religious freedom in early America was largely because there were Protestants from England and German Catholics who were living side by side in the new nation. Many have experienced the violent religious persecution which was occurring in Europe at the time, and they didn’t want that to carry over into the new United States. The largest objection and the strongest part of the first amendment is the protection from a state sanctioned Church. This meant that no one person would be forced to pay taxes to help support a Church. Most were pretty tolerant of a different religious congregation in their community, but that could only be sustained by denying government funds to it.
These principles would establish a free and open society with a backbone of tolerance and religious intermingling. It would remain that way for nearly two centuries until secularism became a pseudo-synonym for religious freedom. The philosophy which stood for tolerance and freedom would be altered to satisfy an agenda of a group who feel, that because a small percentage of Americans do not believe in any Creator, the nonexistence of religion should be commonplace in today’s society. This notion would most definitely trouble Ben Franklin, who himself, never supported exposure to a certain brand of faith. He instead was a strong proponent of generic religion in which he advocated that one could be moral and a generally good person without being spiritual. His main argument was that being a good Catholic or Anglican follower doesn’t necessarily make you a good and virtuous person.
In contemporary America, secular progressivism is rapidly growing. We see an annual protest against religious festivals and mainstream Judeo-Christian conventions such as Christmas and Easter. This movement contradicts the very fundamental values of religious freedom and tolerance and the idea of republicanism which, among other ideas, encompasses the notion that the majority rules. These groups have given the majority vote to the small minority of Americans who, not only abstain from practicing any religion, see the need to suppress the freedom of religion for all Americans.
There is still a silent majority of Americans who enjoy their freedom of faith and carry on early American traditions in modern day America. We see this in Congress when, before each session, they begin with an opening prayer. This is done in traditional form in a sense that they pray not to any specific deity, but instead to their “Creator”, which allows interpretation of belief. The proliferation of Christian practices arises when we observe judicial proceedings, and those about to testify are made to swear an oath upon a Bible. This practice plays upon the respect that all Americans have for the Creator and the force which Benjamin Franklin would say “governs the affairs of men.”
Jonathan Mayhew, a Congregational minister, wrote centuries ago about the danger of men who use their liberty as a tool for their own gain. He might have well been looking into the future because he dictates that liberty is something which should be enjoyed and appreciated. He warns against using rights and freedoms as a “cloak of maliciousness” and expresses that if you are living under a just government, a good citizen would enjoy the leadership they have and not to engage in any attempt to exploit the liberties rarely seen in many governments. This has very strong relevance in contemporary times because we see all too often people claiming that they “have their rights,” although this phenomena is unique to only a select few governments in the world and it would most likely not even be present in North America is it weren’t for a small group of courageous and pious men who initiated the drive for freedom and independence.
One of the largest examples of religious tolerance today is the encounter American society has with moderate Muslim Americans. This occurrence has become rather sensitive in today’s world because the United States is waging war on two fronts against an enemy which shares a common heritage with this small population in the United States. The results thus far have been uniquely American, in the sense that with the exception of a few radical groups who seek to diminish tolerance, they have often been recognized as law abiding and patriotic Americans. Society has been able to establish a clear distinction between radical terrorists and peaceful moderate Muslims who seek a society based around tolerance and freedom to the same extent as previous Americans.
This version of acceptance has been present since before the United States was even created. Integration of faiths and tolerance was first experienced on a large scale in North America through the Quebec Act. This was an Act of Parliament which was a way of dealing with the culturally diverse Canadians which were acquired through the Treaty of Paris at the close of the Seven Years War. This allowed them to continue practicing their Catholic faith and they were able to pledge their loyalty to the King of England, but did not have to pledge their loyalty to the Protestant faith. This would ultimately deny the colonists Canadian support during the Revolution, but it did set a precedent for integration of faiths into society, and we see it more and more as the years progress.
It is very common and widely accepted that our nation is great because we respect everyone else’s beliefs and traditions. It is not as well known, however, that those traditions are at risk because they are stifled under the banner of liberalism. The same core principles which made our country the great moral leader that it is, is the same principles which omitted the recognition of any particular deity, thus allowing people from all walks of life to unite in America and relate the same virtues. The Founding Fathers intended to create a nation where everyone, especially the majority, would be afforded the right to publicly express their religious affiliation, but the same rights are being used to stifle the expression of mainstream ecumenical philosophy. By this practice, religious freedom is not being provided, but is instead trading one set of rights for another. Societal norms of this nature are not conducive to a free nation, but rather instill resentment among the majority and foster the desire for, not a state sanctioned religion, but one that is recognized by our government as the dominant faith, which would no doubt turn back the clock on social progress.

The Tyranny of Secularism
“But it seems that something has happened that has never happened before: though we know not just when, or why, or how, or where. Men have left God not for other gods, they say, but for no god; and this has never happened before.” (T.S. Eliot)
Sixty-one prominent scholars and writers issued a declaration that denounces absolute morality, the recent rise of “Christian fundamentalism.” The statement, called “A secular humanist declaration,” warns that the reappearance of dogmatic authoritarian religions “threatens intellectual freedom, human rights, and scientific progress.” The group assails “fundamentalist, literalist and doctrinaire Christianity; a rapidly growing and uncompromising Moslem clericalism in the Middle East and Asia; the reassertion of orthodox authority by the Roman Catholic papal hierarchy; nationalistic religious Judaism; and the reversion to obscurantist religions in Asia.” It also says that it is immoral to “baptize infants, to confirm adolescents, or to impose a religious creed on young people before they are able to consent.”The declaration appeared in the first issue of a secular humanist magazine, “Free Inquiry,” edited by Dr. Paul Kurtz. In its statement, the group contends that “men and women are free and are responsible for their own destinies and that they cannot look toward some transcendent Being for salvation.” Furthermore, it is asserted that supernatural religion and revelation are enemies of rational progress. “We are apprehensive that modern civilization is threatened by forces antithetical to reason, democracy and freedom.” The group confesses their faith in the “scientific method” as the most reliable way of understanding the world.
What is secular humanism? It is a way of life and interpretation of life that embraces only the natural order of things. It believes that neither God nor the realm of spiritual reality are necessary for life and thought. Secular humanists call for greater personal freedom and a responsibility that goes along with such freedom. Such secularism is also the authority by which individuals are guided in the choices they must make. Autonomous man decides the values of man, what is morality and interprets the meaning of history. With this philosophy there is nothing that prevents the take over by some kind of ideology that can bring subjection to tyranny.
Secular humanism claims that as a philosophy it favours exclusion of religion in making moral and political decisions. But man cannot eradicate religion. Human beings are ineradicably religious and, therefore, the secularization process only produces a new form of idolatry. In our modern age, this idolatry has taken different forms, ranging from the worship of the state to astrology. During the early years of the French revolution, the Commune, the Jacobins, the Girondins, and the Montagnards all hoped that devotion to the young republic would become the religion of the people, that the new Trinity Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity would replace the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and the furtherance of this new Trinity could be made the overriding aim of the social order and the final test of morality.
How tolerant was the secular religion of the French revolution? It tried to de-Christianize France. Joseph Fouche (1759-1820), prominent leader in the reign of Terror, minister of police under the Directory and the servant of Napolean and Louis XVIII, issued rigorous rules for the clergy. They were not allowed to wear clerical dress, or perform religious ceremonies outside their churches, and must marry. He abolished Christian funeral services and cemeteries had to display an inscription telling the public that “death is an eternal sleep.” So much for enlightened rationalistic secular tolerance!
Who were some of the co-signers of the “Secular humanist declaration?” Dr. Henry Morgenthaler from Montreal, the physician who became famous for his abortion practices; Dr. Joseph Fletcher, a theologian at the University of the Virginia Medical School, who became one of the most influential spokesmen for “situation ethics.” He believes that “the ruling norm of Christian decision is love: nothing else.” He says that love dictates abortion on the ground that no unwanted or unintended baby should be allowed to live. He declares that: “Whether any form of sex – hetero, homo, or auto – is good, depends on whether love is served.”
Dr. B.F. Skinner, the noted retired Harvard psychologist, is well-known for his anti-Christian views. For Skinner, man is only the product of conditioning, a collection of what has been in the past: your genetic makeup and your environment. Dr. Francis Schaeffer comments about Skinner’s behaviourist school of psychology: “Man is accepted as a machine, and he is treated as a machine. Such professionals are there by the hundreds, some of them with understanding, some of them with power, some of them only in little places. In some places they control the educational process down into the earliest days of school.”
Secularism is the enemy of Biblical Christianity. The Christian life is based on the Word of God and directed to God’s glory. Satan will try to destroy this God-centred living. God is not satisfied with partial service. Because He is God, He demands our complete surrender. He alone wants to have the first and the last word. He doesn’t like to share Himself with anyone or anything else. Secular humanism doesn’t liberate, but enslaves. Jesus said: “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31).

Pope Benedict XVI vs. Secularism
by Benjamin Wiker Saturday, Mar 09, 2013 7:47 AM Comments
I think it will be some years before we understand how great a legacy Pope Benedict XVI will be leaving us.
Part of that legacy to be especially treasured will be the Pope’s reflections on the dangers of the increasingly aggressive secular state.
His warning: In the West, and now especially in the United States, the state is increasingly pushing a secular agenda. Pushing that agenda through means driving the Church, not just out of the public square, but out of the culture. The threat to religious liberty is very, very real.
In January 2012, Pope Benedict addressed U.S. bishops from Baltimore, Washington and the Archdiocese for the Military Services during their ad limina pilgrimage to Rome, telling them, “It is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States comes to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres. The seriousness of these threats needs to be clearly appreciated at every level of ecclesial life. Of particular concern are certain attempts being made to limit that most cherished of American freedoms: the freedom of religion.”
At about the same time that the Pope was warning the U.S. bishops (and, indirectly, all Americans) about the threat to religious liberty by radical secularists, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services was busily illustrating it.
That very January, the secretary of the HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, delivered a mandate informing all religious institutions — especially Catholic universities and hospitals — that they would have to provide contraceptives, abortifacients and sterilization in their insurance plans.
The HHS mandate is not an isolated incident, but part of a larger, longer campaign by the secular-minded in Europe and America to shrink the presence and influence of Christianity in the world until it finally disappears from history, thereby reversing the effects of the Church’s 2,000-year evangelization.
The Pope’s call for a New Evangelization — a redoubling of Pope John Paul II’s efforts — is made in the face of this very real threat. The fate of the Church in the third millennium depends in large part on our response to the active secularization that has done so much to erase Christianity during the final two centuries of the second millennium.
In order to respond prayerfully, we need to comprehend the real scope of the secular threat.
Benedict is a man deeply read in history, and so he understands very clearly that aggressive secularization has been gaining political ground since the horrors of brutal de-Christianization during the French Revolution. It happened in France; it happened in Russia and the Soviet satellites; it happened in other ways, with the imposition of the pseudo-religion of Nazism that took over his homeland, Bavaria; it continues today in all of Europe’s liberal democracies.
And, as the Pope warned, secularization has come to the United States of America.
Take down the Ten Commandments. No Bible reading in schools. No public prayer. Clear away the crèche. No “Merry Christmas.” Affirm “gay marriage.” And, as we’ve seen with the HHS mandate, “Thou shalt participate in the sexual revolution.”
The message of all such radical secularism is clear: “You will bend the knee before the state.”
The secular state often puts the message in more inviting terms, terms which should sound like a very familiar temptation: “If you will bend the knee before me, then I will give you all the splendor and pleasures of the world.”
Secularism is, by definition, the affirmation of this world and the rejection of the next. It is historically rooted in a materialism that denies the existence of God, the angels, the soul and the afterlife. Its fundamental “this-worldliness” is the source of secularism’s antagonism to the Church.
As Pope Benedict has warned, this antagonism is often disguised as a beneficent affirmation of plurality. But when contemporary secularists preach tolerance, they practice what the Pope has called a “negative tolerance,” a “new intolerance,” complete with “standards of thinking that are supposed to be imposed on everyone” — what we in America call “political correctness.”
The result, the Pope has noted, is actually the “abolition of tolerance, for it means, after all, that religion, that the Christian faith, is no longer allowed to express itself visibly.”
That result is, of course, the real aim of secularism: the removal of Christianity from culture.
The seemingly beneficent affirmation of plurality has, as Pope Benedict noted, a deeper manifestation — the promotion of relativism. Relativism says with a kindly smile, “Let us affirm all views as equally good; all ways of living as equally admirable; all thoughts as equally true.”
But again, hidden beneath the extended velvet glove of affirmation is often an iron hand ready to impose what the Pope has rightly called “a dictatorship of relativism.”
As he warned the conclave that would end up electing him to the papacy, “We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one’s own ego and one’s own desires.”
That “egoism” is inherent in the secular denial of God and the materialist reduction of good and evil to personal physical pleasure and pain.
With no God to define good and evil, people become their own little gods, creating their own moral rules that maximize this-worldly satisfactions.
In response, Pope Benedict has issued a call “for an engaged, articulate and well-formed Catholic laity, endowed with a strong critical sense vis-à-vis the dominant culture and with the courage to counter a reductive secularism which would delegitimize the Church’s participation in public debate about the issues which are determining the future of American society.”
That call was given directly to the visiting U.S. bishops in January 2012 as an essential task of the New Evangelization, one that also includes “a convincing articulation of the Christian vision of man and society” as the true alternative to radical secularism.

Worshipping the State: How Liberalism Became Our State Religion.
How Muslims will Infiltrate Western Democracies
An Ex-Muslims Warning…Do Yourself A Favor And Read This
To the Infidel world:
I was born and raised as Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Muslim. I know Islamic brain. I live and breath with them. I am an insider. I left Islam when I understood that Islam is a sick and evil religion. Following are the Islamic message to the West.
To the infidels of the West:
Constitution for the new Islamic Republic of EU and USA is under construction.
We will fight the infidel to death.
Meanwhile American laws will protect us.
Democrats and Leftist will support us.
UNO will legitimize us.
CAIR will incubate us.
ACLU will empower us.
Western Universities will educate us.
Mosques will shelter us
OPEC will finance us
Hollywood will love us.
Koffi Annan will pass politically correct sympathetic statement for Jihadists.
Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.
We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.
We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest.
We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyr. We will take over the Europe first and then US will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the US.
Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mixed with intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to Jihad when time comes. Who are we?
We are the “sleeper cells”.
We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary.
At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine,- Imagine the news in the world “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”.
We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women”,
Keep your Nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carrier or high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can’t use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take the advantage of your higher moral standard and use it against you. We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bomber against you.
Visualize the news flash all over the world, -Moslem mother is sobbing, -.crying. -.Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundreds of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad.
West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.
You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us?
On the camera:
We will always say, “Islam is the religion of Peace.”
We will say, “Jihad is actually inner Jihad.”
Moderate Muslim will say there is no link between Islam and Terrorism and the West will believe it because the West is so gullible.
Moderate Muslim all over the world will incubate Jihadists by their talk by defending Islam.
Using Western Legal system we will assert our Sharia Laws, slowly but surely.
We will increase in number. We will double again.
You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next-door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite, humble that will make you say, “wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people”, But, we will stab you in your back when you are sleeping as we did on 911.
There will be more 911 in Europe and in America. We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.”
Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt. The war of civilizations has just begun.
We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will video tape those and send it to all infidels to watch. They will surrender – ISLAM means surrender.
We will use your own values of kindness against you.
You are destined to loose.
Must be very depressing for you. Isn’t it?
as we say just before beheading.
21st Century Islamic Warfare
Let’s see the effectiveness of Islamic warfare. Muslims Vs. the West.
THE RULE HAS CHANGED. There is new game in town.
Bill Clinton ordered 50 Tomahawks Cruise missiles costing $100,000,000 each to destroy $50 mud houses that belonged to Osama’s family. What a stupidity? What a poor ROI (Return On Investment)
In return Osama’s attack on the US.
Cost: 19 martyrs and less than $500,000.
Cost to the West: over 3,000 dead.
At least $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) dollars economical loss in one year. This includes the ripple effect.
Osama’s ROI with respect to: life = 3,000/19 = 158 fold. Dollar = $1 tr./500K = 2,000,000 fold
That is modern warfare. The West will loose.
Allah-Hu-Akbar. Islam will rule the world. There is nothing you can do. Even if the per capita GDP of the world drops to half of its present level as a consequence of Islamic laws in place all over the world but still Islam will rule the word.
From your point of view we bring to the world to the dark ages, so be it. But still Islam wins, West looses.
Are you sure you want to play this game?
You are destined to loose.
Saudi Arabia’s $100 billion investment over the last 3 decades on over 60 thousands Madrassas and school all over the Islamic world is finally paying off. While the West was busy inventing medicine, increasing life expectancy, elevating human suffering, decoding human gene to find cure for Cancer, heart disease etc, launching space shuttle, inventing internet, working on new laws/theory for human rights, developing better economical models for a more prosperous world, while ACLU was gaining control over common sense, while American ingenuity was benefiting the rest of the world, we Muslims were busy producing over 200 million out of 1.4 billion, Walking, Talking, Non-Thinking, West-Hating, Pre-Programmed, Suicidal, Parasitic, Terrorist Robots. You can’t win. The Genie is out of the bottle.
We will use American’s kindness, fairness, compassion, freedom of speech and non-discriminatory policy against them. We will stab them in the back.
What are you going to do? You are doomed.
Barack Hussein Obama’s Legacy Will Last Generations
40 Shocking Quotes from Barack Obama on Islam and Christianity
We’ve written extensively on Barack Obama’s war on Christianity, but these quotes show just how biased he is against Christian orthodoxy and how sympathetic he is towards Islam.
The Vatican has repeatedly called Obama out for his egregious record on religious liberty, going so far to say that he is waging war on “Christian civilization.” Rev. Franklin Graham, son of renowned preacher Billy Graham, said that Obama and Holder have “turned their backs on God” by trying to force gay marriage on the entire country.
As you’ll see below, he speaks out of nothing but respect and reverence when it comes to Islam, but repeatedly attacks traditional Christian doctrines on the definition of marriage, sin, hell, and salvation.
Obama’s quotes on Islam:
1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”
2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6. “Islam has always been part of America”
7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
14. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Now, let’s compare those quotes to what he has said about Christianity:
1. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
2. “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
3. “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”
4. “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”
5. “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”
6. From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”
7. Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”
8. “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”
9. “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”
10. “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”
11. “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”
12. “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”
13. “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”
14. On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”
15. “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
16. “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”
17. “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”
18. “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”
19. “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra— (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”
20. “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”
We don’t think that Obama is a closet Muslim. He simply espouses theological universalism, or the idea that all religions have truth in them and somehow all end up in the same place when it comes to eternity.
The problem is that truth, by its very nature, is exclusive. All religions make exclusive claims – that’s not something that’s unique to Christianity. As Tim Keller put it, “All claims are exclusive. The Gospel is an exclusive truth but it’s the most inclusive exclusive truth in the world.”
Obama’s idea of pluralism is an interesting one. He praises Islam for being so “tolerant” and criticizes Christianity for not being accommodating enough to Muslims. He also says that we must not “slander the prophet of Islam.” Yet there is no mention of violent, oppressive shariah law, nor is there any mention of the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East at the hands of Muslims.
Obama lauds Islam’s great history yet goes after conservative Christians who want to practice their faith in the public square. Whether it’s Hobby Lobby or Catholic organizations and charities being discriminated against by Obamacare, Obama has shown little tolerance for those groups when it comes to their free exercise of religion. This isn’t true pluralism, it’s pluralism on his terms, and it’s disgusting and hypocritical.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter so your friends can see just how hypocritical Obama is when it comes to Islam and Christianity.
Comments and Observations
There is without doubt that the secularist influence has come from America. The founding fathers of America were totally ignorant of Islam and never imagined that such an alien religion could ever influence America’s future and security.
