A short history lesson here. Samuel Adams wrote in 1772 The Rights of the Colonists which is one of the texts that founded our country and sets up some simple rules of living in the United States.
If you want to join a society, you do it voluntarily and you accept the rules previously agreed on. (my updating)
In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practised, and, both by precept and example, inculcated on mankind. And it is now generally agreed among Christians that this spirit of toleration, in the fullest extent consistent with the being of civil society, is the chief characteristical mark of the Church. Insomuch that Mr. Locke has asserted and proved, beyond the possibility of contradiction on any solid ground, that such toleration ought to be extended to all whose doctrines are not subversive of society. The only sects which he thinks ought to be, and which by all wise laws are excluded from such toleration, are those who teach doctrines subversive of the civil government under which they live.
So its the history of the United States and part of its society to be tolerant of all religons as long as they are tolerant of us. The only ones who are not accepted are those who teach that their religion is superior to the civil government. Christianity and Judaism teaches civil government is setup by God and must be obeyed, unless it sets up a law contrary to what God has taught. Roman Catholics were not accepted in America for a time because they used to teach their superiority to earthly government.
Now, we are faced with some from isalm who want to get along with us. They are not the problem. The problem is those who believe in the superiority of islam over all. This brings me to my least favorite group CAIR, “your friendly neighborhood terrorists”, They try to intimidate American citizens through litigation and political correctness. The flying Imams case and the legal harassment of anti-cair, which fell apart when they figured out discovery worked both ways.
Let me point to Omar Alunad a co-founder of CAIR, who in1994,
spoke before a packed crowd at the Flamingo Palace banquet hall on Peralta Boulevard, urging Muslims not to shirk their duty of sharing the Islamic faith with those who are “on the wrong side.” Muslim institutions, schools and economic power should be strengthened in America, he said. Those who stay in America should be “open to society without melting (into it),” keeping mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam, he said.
“If you choose to live here (in America) … you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam,” he said.
Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth, he said.
Hat tip to WND
Let me repeat what he said in case you are deaf. “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant” Yet every time that CAIR has been asked about this they have claimed it’s untrue and slander
Why would they lie about this? I have found out. It goes to the principle of Taquiya, a principle that gives islamists the moral authority to deceive infidels. So islamists can lie to infidels (you and me) to further their goal of world domination.
Now I ask are they worthy of living here?
