And The Difference Between Christianity and Islam Is….

 Did an Islamic fundamentalist write the following?:

You start with a group of serious [Muslims] who are obedient and who are willing to die for the cause — to die for [Mohammed], the brethren and the Truth. If we don’t have that, we can’t make headway in any century, but particularly at a crisis point in history like we have now — the coming collision course between [Islamic] philosophy and anti-[Muslilm] philosophy. We must have people willing for martyrdom and holy living.

Nope, it was entirely Christian in origin:

You start with a group of serious Christians who are obedient and who are willing to die for the cause — to die for Jesus, the brethren and the Truth. If we don’t have that, we can’t make headway in any century, but particularly at a crisis point in history like we have now — the coming collision course between Christian philosophy and anti-Christian philosophy. We must have people willing for martyrdom and holy living.

Makes you wonder…no doubt this is an extreme position, but it’s the end of a line of reasoning that has all of the following along its course:

“This nation was founded on Christian principles”;

“Marriage must only be between a man and a woman because God said so”;

“You are not allowed to have an abortion because my religion says it’s murder”;

“You have to teach creationism or intelligent design in the classroom because evolution is an insult to my religion”;

“Atheists are not true Americans”;

“We’re having more earthquakes because we tolerate the homosexual community”;

“You should be able to express your religious viewpoint in the classroom without challenge”;

“Contraception should be outlawed because every sperm is sacred”;

There is only the thinnest of lines that can be drawn between a religious viewpoint and theocracy.

  1. I don’t recommend martyrdom but constant vigilance around these kinds of people is important along with never turning your back on them even when they are down. Make sure they are dead because they are experts at faking it. Back away from them with your eyes on them always.

  2. who said this?
