Destroy all churches : Obama silent while Saudi grand mufti targets Christianity
Washington Times ^ | 03/18/2012

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.

Obama’s outreach and Grand Caliphate plan will lead to a mostly Christian and Jew free Middle East and the rest put in dhimmi servitude status.

Obama silent on this is not news at all. Who in their right mind would expect a man named “Barack Hussein” to object to the destruction of Christian churches? It floors my how gullible and ignorant voters can be.

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.

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.

Schumer and the Dems: More Saudi oil production good, it will drop the ol prices, more American production bad since it will not affect US oil prices.

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.

Mufti Commie poofter Barry is attacking the Catholic Church, and thus all of Christianity, really. Little barry bassturd is a dead soul, not even a twisted mooselimb soul..

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.

Of all the possible outcomes, to unite all the Christians like this is a blessing beyond belief.

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Islam and Liberalism are spawn of the same seed - Satan.

I’m still flabbergasted and appalled that, a mere 7 years after the worst terrorist attack on American soil, planned by a man named OSAMA, that a man named OBAMA could rise above the level of dog catcher, much less become president.

...and the gates of hell shall not prevail...

And might I further point out that gates are NOT an offensive weapon; they are a DEFENSIVE asset, and they WILL be blown wide open by the praying, prophetic Church.

This little demonized mufti can try to get something started, but The Bride of Christ -- hand-in-hand with her Bridegroom God -- will be the one to FINISH it!

"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."

Freedom of Religion isn't on liberals' radar screen because they don't have any religion. Unless we're talking about worshiping movie stars and Democrat politicians.
