Pastor Contradicts Jesus: Burns Qur’an, Fuels Afghani Extremist Rhetoric

Pastor Jones: If you have hate in your heart, let it out

It’s not about the right to burn a Qur’an. Of course he has that right. But as someone who claims to be a man of faith, I don’t see how this is productive at all.  He is clearly trying to bring attention to himself. He is not representative of Americans and he does not have a following. He has been in the media spotlight only because of the absurdity of his logic and the controversy surrounding his actions.  
 
We’re supposed to be educated and civilized Americans that believe in respect. This ‘pastor’ certainly isn’t responsible for the deaths in Afghanistan as a result of the book burning. However, his actions (in combination with the irresponsible media and the gullible people that keep on eating the tripe the spew), are empowering a radical group of people that believe in a very radical brand of Islam. These actions are fueling thugs and extremists and playing into their hands. They know that they only way they can continue to recruit and grow stronger is if they perpetuate the myth that America is waging a new Crusade against Islam. These thugs will do whatever they can to stifle debate, kill anyone that gets in their way, and make sure that no compromises are never made. Purity in the name of extremism is an awfully dangerous thing.  
 
We must fight extremism with our intellect and we must understand that we are completely desensitized to shock value. Yes, it is clearly silly to us that burning a bound book is just a way for us to excercise our freedom to do so. However, to uneducated Afghanis that will believe anything that is told to them, they probably think there are thousands of Americans who are burning Qur’ans all over the streets plotting how they can completely destroy Islam and kill all the followers. Believe me… if people can be convinced that real estate is always a great investment in America, the uneducated, iliterate, and jobless in Afghanistan can be convinced that there is an American plot to Crusade against Islam.

We all certainly have the right to burn a Koran. If the day comes where someone tries to take that right away, I will be the first one to light one up. However, in the meantime, I’m not going to excercise my right to be grossly disrespectful to anyone or any group just because I can.  
Believe me when I say it… Moderate Muslims, secularists, and women are depending on us to show some restraint.

Presidential Contender ‘Resents’ Muslims

22 Mar
Herman Cain

Herman Cain, a Republican Presidential Contender, is gaining momentum in his hapless attempt to become the Republican nominee. As a relative unknown, what better way to ratchet up support and name recognition than to say he ‘resents’ Muslims? Fox Nation covered the story

Mr. Cain qualifies his disdain of a considerable segment of the American population by stating that he makes his judgment “upon the little knowledge that [he has] of the Muslim religion.”  When asked why he resents Muslims, Cain said, “…You know, they have an objective to convert all infidels or kill them.”

Though we know Herman Cain probably won’t even make it on to the primary ballots in Iowa or New Hampshire, Tea Party Patriots MUST denounce this myopic rhetoric. If we are going to focus on an agenda that reduces the deficit, empowers entrepreneurship, and elevates the importance of family values, we need to stop playing into the hands of the main stream liberal media. Let’s be honest here… even though the Tea Party is a sincere grassroots populist movement with a very serious agenda, there is an element that exists OUTSIDE our ranks that is conspiracy-prone, on the fringe, and dare I say it, racist *gasp*. Unfortunately, these are the same buffoons who get interviewed by MSNBC on a daily basis to bring down our movement. What better way to debunk a majority of Americans than to point at the Tea Party’s version of the village idiot?

Herman Cain is a self-made man who should be a role model to all Americans. His story shows us how a little bit of faith and some elbow-grease can allow a someone to go from a nobody to one of the most important and influential people in his field. Instead of focusing on the story of an African-American man that has garnered Tea Party support based on his actions, his fear-mongering anti-Islamic message works only to energize the faux Tea Party village imbeciles.
