INTIMIDATION AT A SMALL CHURCH IN THE NORTH GA MOUNTAINS
I feel very fortunate to live in the mountains of North Georgia. The area is replete with beautiful green contours, a myriad of rushing streams, and lush hardwood forests filled with wildlife. Living here makes the violence and strife we see everyday around the country seem like some other planet. The violence in the Middle East seems like some other galaxy. However, the truth is no one anywhere is immune from what is happening in the world today.
Recently, a very small church in this area held a conference on the threat of Islam in America. The speakers at the conference were extremely knowledgeable and experienced in identifying and countering the threat Islam poses. Their presentations were incredibly detailed and comprehensive. My great concern about the true nature of Islam was confirmed by what I heard.
We really have to wake up to the fact that Islam is not a “religion of peace”, you know, the ubiquitous liberal mantra. It is a harsh, totalitarian form of societal rule completely incompatible with our culture and constitutional form of government. Islam sees the world very simply – you are either part of the Islamic world or you are not. If you are not, the Islamic followers are obligated to either subdue you to the faith or kill you. They are never to stop trying and are to use whatever means necessary to accomplish this. Therefore, deception and violence are acceptable if it promotes the cause of Islam.
One thing one of the presenters at the conference said has really stayed with me. He stated that history shows that the more people take the Bible literally, the more peaceful they become. However, the more people take the Qur’an literally, the more violent they become. I believe that’s all you need to remember if you have doubts about what we face.
