I Have A Solution To The Islmic Issue
OK for the record, I am not partial to Donald Trump. I don't plan to vote for him. The man is an extremist who tends to speak before he thinks. I don’t want him representing America. In the issue of Muslim immigrants and gun control, I suspect he is attempting to use our fears to his advantage. I don’t believe for a moment his solution would achieve a positive result. Even so, if your honest you probably enjoyed his solution more than you should have.
I admit freely that I have strong anti-Islamic opinions. Anyone who reads my Facebook posts knows I campaign against their ideology without apology. I believe it will, if not confronted, destroy our country.However, I struggle with a solution. I can understand President Obama’s position. If he spoke like Donald Trump, all American Muslims would take up arms both in defense of their faith and their personal safety. We would discover very quickly the reality of Jihad first hand in our neighborhoods on a daily basis. I do not say this out of fear, Rather to point out the foolishness of religious discrimination and to appreciate our presidents need to keep the peace. Yet I have a problem accepting the Idea that we are not at war with Islam. For in truth, the religion of Islam is the problem. It’s holy scriptures gives evil men justification to carry out their despicable acts of Violence.
Don't worry, only one end of this snake is dangerious
The answer is not violence or discrimination. Violence gives way to more violence. Hate will breed more hate. Nevertheless, pretending that terrorist groups like ISIL aren’t Islamic is a joke, a departure from sanity. Expecting the American people to be comforted by the idea that Radical Muslims only make up a small part of Islam is like asking me to take comfort in the idea that only one end of a snake is dangerous.
Significant changes to society take place first in the minds and actions of Radicals. Our American founding fathers were radicals, the Pilgrims were religious radicals, the idea of separating Church and state was radical. Radical Ideas start off in small groups and then become mainstream. These so called “small” numbers of Radical Islamists are influencing the whole. I believe it is just a matter of time before their ideas become mainstream
So what’s to be done? How can we combat this dangerous and erroneous ideology?Is their an antidote, an Anti-Islam? If there is, one thing is for sure, it will not be administered by politicians or Military action.
My solution is probably over simplified and a bit idealistic. But from where I am standing Christianity seems to be the only Anti-Islam around. It shapes the Human nature in a positive way. It abhors violence of any kind, teaches charity as true love, and it defines the fear of God without enslaving the populace under a religiously run governmental. The contrast between Islam and Christianity is staggering. If we want to end terrorism in America, make Christ known and live by his teachings. Like never before, the love of Christ will be understood and appreciated. Christian principles like turning the other cheek, loving your enemies, praying for those who persecute you, and the simple act of forgiveness separate us from Islam and is, in my humble opinion, what makes Christianity the ideal Islamic solution.
Something to think about.
