Basically, this column was called unfair, uninformed, unbalanced, racist and inappropriate. It was also told to me by the management that it would cause a "headache" for them. Apparently free speech is not worth a headache in the newsroom of The Collegian. Oh well. They can't silence me.
I have requested written documentation stating why this following column is racist and/or inappropriate. I requested this at 10:56pm. When I receive (or don't receive) the information, I will begin to pursue justice.
10:56pm: Request for written documentation.
1:26am: No response from Editor.
10:48am: Empty inbox.
3:32pm: I'm done holding my breath.
6:03pm: I was fired from The Collegian.
Religion of Violence
Liberals act dangerously to compare Islam to Christianity
“Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam, in a country like
,” Rosie O’Donnell told millions of Americans when she was still a host on “The View.” This skewed attitude is not unique to O’Donnell; it is one shared by many liberals across the country. Too many individuals are scared to admit the truth, that Islam is nothing like Christianity or any other religion based on Judeo-Christian principles. It is, in fact, a religion of violence. America
In a span of four debates, not one Democratic presidential candidate said the words “Islamic terrorists.” Instead, the candidates – and many other liberals – each tip toe around the idea that a religion is the foundation of terrorism. However, when the facts are examined, it is hard to deny that Islam is a violent religion, and one that has bred terrorism.
The Koran contains many verses that are violent. Now, this is not to dismiss the fact that there are also violent verses in the Bible, the book that many Christians hold to be the Word of God. The difference, however, is that the verses in the Bible are merely descriptive; the verses found in the Koran are prescriptive. “In the Koran, there are open ended universal commands for believers to wage war against non-believers,” says Robert Spencer, author of numerous books that examine the history and theology of Islam. “There is nothing that is like that in the Bible anywhere.” In chapter nine verse 29 of the Koran, believers are called to “fight against those who…do not truly believe either in God or the Last Day…till they [have been] humbled in war.”
Verses in the Koran are not the only source of violence found in Islam. The belief of jihad is also a violent concept that many Islamists carry out. This is not to say that every Muslim practices jihad or is a violent individual, but Islam as a whole is a system that calls its believers to practice this “holy war.”
Another belief that many liberals, including O’Donnell, share is that this country’s occupation of
has created terrorists and violence. This could not be farther from the truth. In 1998, Osama bin Laden wrote an article with a few other radical jihadists that called for a fatwa, or a legal ruling, to all Muslims to kill Americans and their allies. In the article, bin Laden says, “The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies – civilians and military – is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it…” The article goes on to say, “This is in accordance with the words of Almighty Allah…” First off, this article goes on to promote the idea that Islam is a religion of violence. However, it also makes aware the notion that jihadists wanted Americans dead long before Operation Iraqi Freedom. In fact, this article was written three years before the horrific attacks on September 11th, 2001. Iraq
Americans need to stand up for Western civilization and Judeo-Christian principles, the same principles that this country was founded on. “Whether or not we are Christians ourselves…the Judeo-Christian civilization is still something we are enjoying the benefits of living in the Western world,” Spencer says. “To attack Christianity, ultimately, is to attack one of the foundations of this civilization.”
The religion of Islam promotes the destruction of every foundation of
. Even though not every Islamist believes this is right, the basis of this religion is to destroy any and all non-believers. To side with Islam is to side with the enemy of America . America
