WHAT'S AN INFIDEL ?
The author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry. The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you have a purpose. The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races.
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: 'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?' There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!'
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?' The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.' He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!' The Muslim was speechless.
I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?' You could have heard a pin drop.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims' beliefs.
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President. I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference. FOR CHRIST'S SAKE....SEND THIS ON!
We are at War with Islam, always have been, always will be.
They already have the president.
We already lost this in 2008.
We already lost WW3.
If the Nazis would have had nukes, 1.2 billion followers and bases with millions of followers in every nation on the Earth in 1940, the war would have been over BEFORE Pearl Harbor.
Our war is over. The minute they actually strike, it is over. Even all our guns will do little when they have nukes and ours are EMP dead in the ground.
An infidel is your run of the mill every day guy.
Islam is what’s perverted.
I certainly believe that such a conversation could have taken place. But many folks have received forwarded emails that turn out to be only partially true, or not true at all.
Now, if this was accompanied by a youtube video, it would be explosive.
Is this confirmed as authentic by Rick Mathes?
The exchange is unlikely to have actually occurred. The Imam would never have answered any of the questions about Jihad truthfully to an infidel. But it made good reading.
I’m probably one of the few people that have “official” infidel status....
Several years ago when I was staying at the Marriot Hotel in Islamabad, I ordered a bottle of Scotch be sent to my room. (the hotel has no bar). Before they could send it to my room I had to sign a document that they were required to keep on file declaring that I’m not a Muslim and that I was an “Infidel”.
You’re right. Rather than answering so truthfully, the muslim cleric would have smugly resorted to taquya (sp?) and lied to the infidel. Doing that is perfectly acceptable to their way of ‘thinking’.
Oh, I’m definitely an infidel. I wear my infidelism proudly. If I lived in London, I’d be joining the EDL today.
Me. I am also a bitter clinger.

(Thank you, I’ll be here all week)
I think this is confirmation - from Mathes’ website.

and the OP’s letter, word for word.
Like a baby.....
I actually had a few Pakistani high ranking officials join me in my room to imbibe.
They like the western ways but can’t be seen in public drinking or drink at home....
A parable is not literally a pair of bulls. Further, an allegory is not a big lizard in a swamp. STOP BEING TO LITERAL MINDED YOU PICKER OF NITS.
This needs to be sourced.
It’s not that I don’t find it in agreement with my sentiments. I do.
But merely saying what I might agree with does not make what is said accurate or true.
When I get something in an Email, I go and look for some original source for it. I never accept political messages in Email that I cannot find original sources for. Even when I do find a source, I often find the Email version has not been faithful to the source.
“Allah or Jesus”
1. You need to send that to the orignator of the thread, not me.
2. Separate investigators dispute SOME of what is claimed to have been said and some aspects of the reported events.
I always say: Nothing is worse for a good argument than bad evidence. Bad evidence puts itself under deserved scrutiny, which is used by opponents as evidence that the argument itself is wrong. I never use bad evidence if I can help it.
Without meaning to be harsh, someone posting an e-mail without sourcing is usually not interested in actual facts. Most folks just want an echo chamber.
you and I are in agreement
Sounds like something out of Monty Python, but I can't be sure, so I give up. What are you talking about?
