Prepared to Sacrifice

Prayers - Flickr - Al Jazeera English

“The evidence, unfortunately, is that the West is not even remotely interested in mounting a defense of its values in the face of Muslim fanaticism. Worse, there are signs that the West is even prepared to sacrifice some of its core values in order to appease those who have always despised these values.”

Isis Atrocities

Persecution is a real thing.  I am sicked by these reports of recent Isis atrocities against Christians and others simply because they are not Muslim:

Barbaric ISIS mangle 250 children in industrial dough kneader and cooks rest alive in oven

ISIS terrorists put 250 children through a dough kneader and killed six men by burning them alive in an oven, according to a shocking new report.

A Yazidi sex slave unwittingly ate her one-year-old son after ISIS fanatics cooked the child and served it with rice after starving her for three days, an Iraqi politician claims.

Dying To Surrender

"Freedom go to hell"

“A big chunk of Western civilization, consciously or otherwise, has given the impression that it’s dying to surrender to somebody, anybody. Reasonably enough, Islam figures: Hey, why not us?”

Will Islam Conquer The West?

William Gairdner on the strength of Islam:

So we have two arbitrary systems vying for control of the West—the soft totalitarianism of secularism and the hard totalitarianism of Islam. Both are really forms of slavery… It may seem unthinkable that the West will ever submit to Islam, but many Western citizens are already in submission mode. Submission to their desires has put them in a bad spot. As a result, they are looking for something bigger to submit to—something outside and above their own fragile selves. Some have already turned to Islam. Many more will unless…

Unless, that is, there is a recovery of the Judeo-Christian belief that God is a God of love, justice, reason, and goodness—and that we are made in his image (a concept which does not exist in Islam). In the context of that vision, belief in human dignity and the rights of man is thoroughly justified…

In the end, the choice for the West is not between Islam and pluralistic secularism. A rootless secularism will almost certainly submit to Islam. The only real hope for the West is the recovery of the faith that once inspired Christians to build a beautiful church near Albert Park in West Didsbury, England.

Islam on Track to Become World’s Largest Religion

Muslims will double their share of the population in the United States by 2050 and surpass Christianity as the world’s dominant religion by the end of the century, according to a Pew Research Center report released last week…

Based on demographic trends, Pew projects that the Muslim population will grow by 70 percent worldwide between 2015 and 2060, compared with an overall population growth of 32 percent. That far exceeds the projected growth of the second- and third-fastest growing religions, Christianity and Hinduism, respectively.

The Spiritual Logic

William Gairdner on the spiritual logic underlying monotheistic religion:

The secular Westerner looks at the universe and says: “Because there is no God, the universe must have created itself by purely physical means, so there is no ultimate truth, no Why.”

But the Westerner of faith (and the Muslim) says: “As nothing can come from nothing, the universe cannot have created itself, because for anything to create itself, it would have to precede itself in existence – which is clearly a logical impossibility. Hence, the universe must have had a beginning and an eternal or uncreated creator. So absolute truth must exist somewhere, and therefore I must humble myself before this truth and strive to know it in whatever way I can.”

Anyone can follow the logic embedded in this spiritual conclusion without necessarily belonging to an organized religion.

Literally Dying In Europe

The number of babies born to Muslim women worldwide will exceed the number of Christian births within the next 20 years, according to a new study.

The report, by the Pew Research Center, also predicts that Islam – already the world’s fastest-growing religion – could become the largest faith by the end of the century, with the lead researcher saying Christianity is ‘literally dying in Europe’.
