Shall we Tolerate Islam?


This is your lucky day - a double header Sunday Sermonette, because sometimes one rant on a Sunday is not enough.

This is my response to the Pope (so-called Pope) and his recent assertions that there is no such thing as Islamic Terrorism...tell that to the mothers of their victims, your holiness...

Tolerance is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others.

There have been times throughout history when the West and Political Islam have been at peace, but some European leaders don't understand the nature of that peace. It's not absolute.
Tolerance is not a moral absolute; it is a peace treaty. Tolerance is a social norm because it allows different people to live side-by-side without cutting each other’s throats. It means that we accept that people may be different from us, in their customs, in their behavior, in their dress, in their sex lives, and that if this doesn’t directly affect our lives, it is none of our business. But the model of a peace treaty differs from the model of a moral precept in one simple way: the protection of a peace treaty only extends to those willing to abide by its terms. It is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others. A peace treaty is not a suicide pact.
I tend to go with a far simpler approach because I am a simple man. "Be polite and courteous (and tolerant) but have a plan to kill everyone you meet." - General James Mattis.

Unlike absolute moral precepts, treaties have remedies for breach. If one side has breached another’s rights, the injured party is no longer bound to respect the treaty rights of their assailant — and their response is not an identical violation of the rules, even if it looks superficially similar to the original breach. “Mommy, Timmy hit me back!” holds no more ethical weight among adults than it does among children. The Pope would do well to reassess his response to murderous savages but he's not the first Pope to be besotted with his own narcissistic awesomeness. 

Islam has an ugly track record that goes back to its very roots. It is a political system that uses arbitrary faith to enforce conformity and compliance (as the very meaning of its name suggests). In that, it shares common roots with totalitarian regimes - Maoist China, Stalinist Russia, and takes it one step farther by incorporating faith as a tenant of that mindset. It crushes the human soul, it stamps out all creative thought and it imparts all decision making to a small power elite coterie that "takes direction from Allah". Thus, the Imam's mutterings can not be questioned.

Studying the cause and effect of Political Islam is not a difficult undertaking. A trained chimp could get it. Somehow the progressive, elite, smug, self-satisfied, left doesn't get it. The 'homosexual marches supporting Islam' that we have seen in San Francisco are not unlike having Jews singing the Horst Wessel Song as they march into the ovens in Dachau. The Pope, a communist, is just as caught up in this love of Islam, but sitting on a massive pile of gold, surrounded by high walls and protected by an army of bodyguards, he has inoculated himself from the evil that is endemic in the Islamic system.

In the United States there is one law and it's not Sharia. Tolerance is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others.

Savage conduct (terrorism) needs to be met with absolute force and those who engage in this barbarity need to be obliterated from the earth for the sake of all who wish to live in peace.

  1. A ridiculous comment but then again you can't trust a man who plays with parrots.

    1. I don't think that I've ever known somebody who plays with parrots personally. You may be onto something.

  2. Worked with many Moslems in the car biz. With one exception, the only honorable ones were native born converts. When I speak of honor, it is more about honor among thieves.

  3. Why the left puts any importance or trust in 7th century immoralities is beyond my comprehension.

    1. All they want to do is kill (or rape) the progressives - yet the progressives embrace that. Until they are killed or raped.

      It's that way with Kate Steinle's family in San Francisco. They were liberal until a criminal alien killed Kate in front of her father on the San Francisco Pier. The motivation for the killing? The illegal alien did it for 'shits and giggles'.

  4. I have always wondered why the left being so joyful of Islam. In this part of the world my explanations goes back to when the left had their heroes in the Soviet Union, North Korea, Albania and Pol Pot in Cambodia was the good guy with Mao and Stalin. The left was always proud of being atheists and paid little or no attention to religion except when they could harass Christians and they have always hated Israel. When the communism and socialism in general proved to be a concept of failure the left lost their "religion" and all what they had faith in. Many om them wanted to join the paradise Stalin and Mao had created and the willingness to go to civil war to achieve that goal was strong among some of them. When they lost this concept they had to spend time on something and at the same time immigrants from the Middle East, Africa, Pakistan started to arrive in Europe. This group was something the left could shift their energy towards and support and show solidarity. They were all for giving away welfare and support to the benefit of this new working class. But being proud of being atheists little or nothing did they know about Islam and muslims. They only saw a man from Pakistan. The Lefts had always been proud of being liberal in every aspects and especially gender equality and female rights was important. The migration kept going on and the left experienced that they got a lot of new friends joining them and believing in the concept of free welfare. If you had concerns about what you saw and how the muslims treated women or other groups, or misused welfare for that matter, you where a nazi or scum of the earth. So every reasonable individual learned that it was not a good career move to express anything not in favor of what the left said and the opinion they expressed with their friends in the media. So by some kind of strange synergy the atheists from the left embraced islam without kind of knowing it. As time goes and the MSM starts to secretly understand there is something with Islam and muslims in addition from just being a man from Pakistan it is to late. But they can always hate Israel and now Trump in addition because in the end it is the US faults anyway. That makes them strong in their bonding. So now we have a group of leftists supporting the religion discrimination women rights and equality, hating the only democracy in the Middle east where homosexuals can live in peace without being afraid of being killed from being thrown from a roof of a group of men having a liberal view on stoning women and practicing pedophilia. They are also supported by the Pope and others Christian Bishops denying to take any actions or having an opinions when churches are burned and people being killed due to their religion not being Islam. From what I see and understand most of these people being fond of what is going on get their paycheck from some government budget and they all think private businesses is wrong. I see no solution I anticipate it will be a messy affair when there are no money left to fund the salaries and the attractive welfare. Maybe the left and the muslims all will go home to Africa or somewhere and create a fruitful partnership in the future. At some point someone will get pissed and the small percentage of the population representing the core of the left will be the minority with their friends in the MSM and what took place in France in 1789 will repeat itself but this time with a different twist.

    1. John, Norway dodged a large bullet when it decided not to do like Sweden and bring in Muslim refugees. According to a report here (http://video.foxnews.com/v/5248024459001/?#sp=show-clips) Sweden is now the rape capital of the world.

  5. "Savage conduct (terrorism) needs to be met with absolute force and those who engage in this barbarity need to be obliterated from the earth for the sake of all who wish to live in peace."

    Well said.

    And the left's support for Islam is an obvious sign, as if any were needed, of their insanity.

    1. It's not tacit, humanitarian support. It's "move into my house and help yourself to my refrigerator and to my wife" type support. It makes no sense.
