Skip to comments.Destroy all churches : Obama silent while Saudi grand mufti targets Christianity
Posted on 03/18/2012 6:36:39 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening.
On March 12, Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is necessary to destroy all the churches of the region. The ruling came in response to a query from a Kuwaiti delegation over proposed legislation to prevent construction of churches in the emirate. The mufti based his decision on a story that on his deathbed, Muhammad declared, There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula. This passage has long been used to justify intolerance in the kingdom. Churches have always been banned in Saudi Arabia, and until recently Jews were not even allowed in the country. Those wishing to worship in the manner of their choosing must do so hidden away in private, and even then the morality police have been known to show up unexpectedly and halt proceedings.
This is not a small-time radical imam trying to stir up his followers with fiery hate speech. This was a considered, deliberate and specific ruling from one of the most important leaders in the Muslim world. It does not just create a religious obligation for those over whom the mufti has direct authority; it is also a signal to others in the Muslim world that destroying churches is not only permitted but mandatory.

“I will stand with the Muslims.”
Barry a muslim?
Voters are gullible and ignorant because the msm keeps them so...no one in the media can bring up this topic and expect to keep his/her job.
That’s just the way it is today.
Please...Newt...Rick...call Barky out on this and make it an issue!!!
Muslims tell us everything we need to know about their intentions.
To use the “they couldn’t possibly mean that” defense is an exercise in self-delusion.
Just because they think and act like animals and we don’t is no reason to believe they aren’t animals.
While Barry and the Left attacks US religious values, it is silent on religious violence and extremism in the mid-east.
Both issues are intertwined and inform us of the values of Schumer, Barry, the Dems, and the left in their distain for America.
Silence is complicity. Didn’t someone say something like that, once?
There’s the Latin expression, “Qui tacet consentire videtur” [He who is silent appears to consent].
Anyone speaking up finds himself under attack by the media and government and likely will suffer severe income loss.The evil ones have lied their way into authority and the people mostly don’t care or don’t know.The dependency on government payments fostered by the political elitists is destroying freedom everywhere.
What a coincidence!
Mufti Barry is attacking the Catholic Church.
There now, that looks more realistic.
The grand mufti of Saudi Arabia had better get a clue. The Lord in Matthew 16:18 says: I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Is this puny little man in control of Hell also? His father the Devil still owns it, and has his reservation all made out!
There certainly is a lot of violence and hatred within Islam. But the liberals just don’t see it. Even the events of Sept. 11th didn’t knock any sense into the liberals.
Instead, the liberals are concerned about birth control pills, and hyper ventilate about something Rush Limbaugh says, rather than recognizing true threats to their freedom and existence.
Are you sure you didn’t mean “Bury a muslim”
Of all the possible outcomes, to unite all the Christians like this is a blessing beyond belief.
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
