Brian Fischer, 10-15-11 http://www.afa.net/Blogs/BlogPost.aspx?id=2147512735

Fischer note: “This is the second in a series of columns on the ideal profile of our next president. The columns are adapted from the speech I delivered at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. on October 8. In an earlier column, I stressed the importance of having a president who shares the genuine, authentic and sincere Christian faith of the Founders, and who rejects the theory of evolution since the Founders believed in a Creator who is the source of our unalienable rights.”

“I have written before that we need a president who believes in a Creator, as the Founders did. But we need a president who not only believes in a Creator, but believes in the same Creator in whom our Founding Fathers believed. The Founding Fathers believed in the Creator who is revealed in the pages of the Old and New Testaments.” [False. Read “The full Christian Nation Myth” in the article link below.]

“Our Muslim friends also believe in a creator. But Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God. If you doubt me, ask one of your Muslim friends, ‘Does the god whom you worship have a son?’ He will tell you that that is blasphemy; even believing that is a criminal offense in most Muslim countries. In Iran, a man is living right now under a sentence of death for the Islamic crime of believing that God has a Son.’”[No one has ever proven that Yahveh or his Son actually existed any more so than Allah has been proven to exist.]

“Yet the Founders believed in a God who has a Son. They believed so profoundly in this Son of God that they dated the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution from the year of His birth.[false The Founders did not believe in the Christian God]

“In the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, which Muslims believe was dictated word-for-word by Allah himself, the god who has no son calls no less than 109 times for his followers to commit violence against Christians and Jews. For instance, Sura 9:5 flatly declares, ‘Slay the idolaters (i.e., the infidels, the pagans) wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.’”

“Just last month, the deputy rector at Al-Azhar University, the most prestigious institution in Islam, the site President Obama chose for his world apology speech to the Muslim world in 2009, said this: ‘I say to all my brothers and sisters: Jihad has become an individual duty incumbent upon each and every one of us.’ He goes on to refer to critics of Islam as ‘the offspring of pigs and apes.’ Islam itself is not a religion of peace but a religion of war and violence and death.’”[Of course, Fischer fails to mention some verses in the Holy Christian Bible where Yahveh declares war on various groups of Biblical people aiming for the total annihilation of men, women, children and in one case, their livestock. Gen. 34-13-29 :The Israelites kill Hamor, his son, and all the men of their village, taking as plunder their wealth, cattle, wives and children., Gen 6:11-17,7:11-24: God is unhappy with the wickedness of man and decides to do something about it. He kills every living thing on the face of the earth other than Noah’s family and thereby makes himself the greatest mass murderer in history. Only Two examples here. There are 155 more to be found in the Christian Holy Bible.]

“A study published this summer revealed that 81% of all mosques in America distribute literature that promotes violent jihad. Because such mosques are the most well-attended, the alarming reality is that over 95% of Muslim Americans who attend mosque on a weekly basis attend one of those jihad-promoting houses of worship. This means every single mosque in America is a potential recruiting or training cell for Islamic terror. The greatest long-range threat to our security and liberty is not radical Islam but Islam itself. This is not Islamophobia it is Islamorealism.” [Yes, Fischer, but it’s Islamorealism and Islamophobia, the first is merely a figment of your own fanatical mind-set.]

“Our next president must understand that the more devout a Muslim becomes, the more likely he is to act on those verses. The more devout a Muslim becomes, the more of a threat he becomes to the national security of the United States. Last month, the FBI arrested a Muslim man, a US citizen, who wanted to blow up the Capitol and Pentagon and kill innocent men, women and children just because Americans are, as he put it, ‘enemies of Allah.”’

[Obviously, this Muslim man has it all wrong. “Innocent American men, women, and children” are not “enemies of Allah.” The real “enemies of Allah” are more correctly known as members of the American Christian Right-wing. A group of fanatical members who are busy spreading false notions and various elements of propaganda about American Muslims and Foreign Muslims abroad. All in the name of Christian Exceptionalism so they claim. But history tells us that Christians and Muslims have hated each other for years on end. It’s all part of the fanaticism that controls both religions and proves there is no exceptionalism generated by either.]

“Of course most Muslims in America would not think of acting out on any of those 109 commands, but we must understand that while there may be moderate Muslims, there is no such thing as Moderate Islam.” [And, considering the availability of news reports and thousands of bloggers operating throughout the world today, I would conclude from the reports I read covering the American Religious -Right and scripture contained in the Christian Bible that there is no such thing as “Moderate Christianity.”]

“A look at Muslim nations around the world makes it clear that Sharia law is flatly contradictory to every value and freedom that we cherish in the West.”

“Under Sharia law there is no freedom of religion, no freedom of conscience, no freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, no freedom of association, no equal rights for women. [“No equal rights for women” you say Mr. Fischer? Wake up man. Look around at the news headlines today and tell me what is happening to Womens Rights in America today as the result of legislation by Conservative Republicans in state, local and federal governments to restrict women’s reproductive rights. Women would not be any worse off with Sharia law than with their own Christian/Republican ordained reproductive legislation. Some day the power of women will rise up to kick the asses of Conservative Christian Politicians, Clergy, activists and others who are continually at war with them regarding their constitutional rights. Besides, the “Sharia law’ myth was invented by anti-Muslim Christians as a scare tactic to build hate and repression against Muslim Americans. If you don’t believe in the elusive Christian God, you are not worthy to be considered an American citizen, “Muslims have no constitutional rights” . Just ask AFA’s Brian Fischer if you don’t believe it.]

“That means, at minimum, we need a president who will use all the resources at his disposal to resist and reject the implementation of Sharia law anywhere, at any place, at any time, under any circumstances in the United States of America.” [a president who will resist and reject the implementation of Sharia Law…” a perfect no brainer if there ever was one. ]


The Christian Nation Myth[Christian Fundies Are Busy With “Christian Nation” Propaganda

By Farrell Till, Al Bratton re-posted excerpt 10-15-11

“Whenever the Supreme Court makes a decision that in any way restricts the intrusion of religion into the affairs of government, a flood of editorials, articles, and letters protesting the ruling is sure to appear in the newspapers. Many protesters decry these decisions on the grounds that they conflict with the wishes and intents of the ‘founding fathers.’”

“Such a view of American history is completely contrary to known facts. The primary leaders of the so-called founding fathers of our nation were not Bible-believing Christians; they were deists. Deism was a philosophical belief that was widely accepted by the colonial intelligentsia at the time of the American Revolution. Its major tenets included belief in human reason as a reliable means of solving social and political problems and belief in a supreme deity who created the universe to operate solely by natural laws. The supreme God of the Deists removed himself entirely from the universe after creating it. They believed that he assumed no control over it, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation to man. A necessary consequence of these beliefs was a rejection of many doctrines central to the Christian religion. Deists did not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the efficacy of prayer, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.”
