Religious Sensitivity for the Most Insensitive Religion Around

The importance of religion is on the decline in the West. The “separation of church and state” ideal has jumped to a new level, and the influx of Muslim immigration has all the politically correct politicians erasing every trace of their nations’ historically Christian roots. While a recent reportstates that Christmas decorations in Berlin will no longer be allowed to be displayed in public for fear of offending Muslims, this is a trend which can be seen all over the West as the more religious symbols of Christmas are replaced with snowflakes and snowmen, if they are allowed to be displayed at all. As Paul Wilkinson wrote in his article, “Liberalism: Britain’s Descent into the Multicultural Abyss,” other examples of this secularization include “prayers before council meetings stopped, Christians told not to wear crosses at work, or St George’s flags removed in case they upset Muslims.” There are a multitude of such examples, like US Congressman Keith Ellison taking his oath of office with his hand on the Qur’an, rather than the Bible, or the 10 Commandments in a Tennessee school coming down only to be replaced with the 5 Pillars of Islam, with the 6th pillar of jihad listed rather than the charity or tithing pillar.

The point here is not to promote Christianity but to acknowledge that it is the religion of the majority in the West. According to the World FactBook, the Christian population, while declining, is still roughly 78.5% in the US, approximately 76% in Europe, around 70% in Canada, and around 64% in Australia. These are clear majorities and were even larger majorities in the past before massive waves of immigration began to change the religious landscape. But the values which attract so many immigrants to these Western democracies are rooted in Judeo-Christian morality.

Regardless of their religious backgrounds, when our immigrant ancestors arrived, many escaping religious persecution elsewhere, they knew they were coming to Christian nations. They learned the language, assimilated as best they could, and did not gripe about Christmas decorations or people wearing crosses if they themselves were not Christian. After all, as long as they were allowed to practice their religion, what did it matter if the religious majority openly celebrated their holidays in their own country? The concept of coming to a Christian country and then proceeding to tell the natives to stop displaying their religion in public is ridiculous.

Throughout all the years of Jewish immigration and the immigration of other religious minorities like Hindus and Buddhists, these things were never issues. For the most part, it was accepted that immigrating to a Christian-majority nation meant that Christmas trees would be around as well as references to Jesus, crosses, etc. But the modern governments do not force Christianity upon their populations; there is simply the presence of Christianity which religious minorities have come to accept. Yet with the influx of Muslim immigration, suddenly religious sensitivities have come into play.

It makes no difference if you are Christian or not. There are two issues at hand here. First, is the issue of immigrant assimilation, not to Christianity per se but to the culture which stems from a majority-Christian nation. It is a culture with laws largely based on the 10 Commandments, where the morality accepted by the public is something most religions can agree upon except when it comes to Islam, whose doctrine allows for murder, rape, lying (taqiya), stealing, etc. It is a “religion” which essentially puts any non-Muslim at the disposal of Muslims, to treat any way they want, including such things as not enjoying the same rights with a dhimmi (or second-class citizen) status, rape, torture and even murder.

This clearly does not jive with Western society, which teaches things like the “Golden Rule,” to treat others as you would have them treat you, a standard taught in our society. This rule is significant in Christianity and actually stems from Judaism. A quick summary from the Judaism 101 website explains: ”A large part of Jewish law is about treating people with kindness. The same body of Jewish law that commands us to eat only kosher food and not to turn on lights on Shabbat, also commands us to love both Jews and strangers, to give tzedakah (charity) to the poor and needy, and not to wrong anyone in speech or in business. In fact, acts of kindness are so much a part of Jewish law that the word ‘mitzvah’ (literally, ‘commandment’) is informally used to mean any good deed.”

We teach our children the Golden Rule.

We teach our children the Golden Rule.

The Golden Rule is also present in Hinduism, which along with Judaism is another religion of a minority population in the West: “That man who practices the religion of universal compassion achieves his highest good. That man who keeps under control the three faults,viz., lust, wrath, and cupidity, by throwing them upon all creatures (and practices the virtue of compassion), attains to success. He who, from motives of his own happiness, slays other harmless creatures with the rod of chastisement, never attains to happiness, in the next world. That man who regards all creatures as his own self, and behaves towards them as towards his own self, laying aside the rod of chastisement and completely subjugating his wrath, succeeds in attaining to happiness.” -The Mahabharata, Book 13: Anusasana Parva: Section CXIII

And a more condensed version: “One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self. This, in brief, is the rule of dharma. Other behavior is due to selfish desires.”
Brihaspati, Mahabharata (Anusasana Parva, Section CXIII, Verse 8)

The Golden Rule is also relevant in Buddhism as well as smaller religions and has carried on through the ages from the Ancient civilizations like Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, etc. It also exists in Islam, but with one small detail: it does not apply to the treatment of non-Muslims, and as evident with the infighting amongst the various denominations of Islam (i.e. Sunni Islam and Shia Islam, and many smaller groups and subgroups), it clearly does not apply to “other” Muslims either. Therefore,while other religious minorities can adapt to cultural differences and have a similar sense of morality as the host population of their adopted country, Muslim immigrants, with an antagonistic religion, are not on the same wavelength.

The second issue here is the removal of all things religious except when it comes to Islam and in some cases, the audacity to actually replace religious references with Islamic ideology instead, the ideology of a small yet loud minority, and the ideology which preaches the destruction of the nation. How absurd! Causing a stir over Christians wearing crosses does not make sense if Muslim women are allowed to wear Islamic attire such as the hijab, niqab and abaya. And now as the result of violent anti-Semitic attacks by Muslims, French Jews can no longer wear the kippah (a head-covering for men). Yet when Muslims are told they cannot wear face veils, all hell breaks loose.

Religion is generally not allowed in public schools in the West, unless that religion is Islam. When children are not allowed to hold private Bible studies during their recess with fellow Christians, yet Islam is taught to the entire class, the religion of the minority, which happens to be a religion preaching the destruction of the majority, our values are being replaced with absurdity.

A Pew Research report shows that most people live among their co-religionists, a scenario which would naturally promote harmony. An astounding 97% of Hindus live in a Hindu-majority nation, 87% of Christians live in a Christian-majority nation, and 73% of Muslims live in a Muslim-majority nation. No, we do not all have to live only amongst our fellow believers, however, if we do not, we must be able to get along. Otherwise, why are we here? Of course religious persecution is not right. However, the Western governments are not persecuting religious minorities. Quite the opposite in fact when it comes to Muslims. They are bending over backwards to appease them, so much so, that they are deleting their own histories and beliefs in lieu of Islamic ones. Next will be the persecution of the religious majority.

Part of the problem is that religion is no longer as important to Westerners as it once was. While 58% of Americans still state that religion is very important, and 23% more consider it to be fairly important according to a Gallup Poll, in European countries where Muslim infiltration is highest, the importance of religion is very low. A 2007-2008 Gallup Pollfound that in the UK, 71% responded that religion is not important. Sweden, Denmark and Norway all hover around 80%. France, 73%. Finland and the Netherlands, both in the high 60′s. In Greece, only 30% place no importance on religion, and in this same place, where religion is valued, Muslims are desperate to get a large mosque built in Athens, but no Greek is interested in building it. Coincidence? Not likely. There is a correlation between devaluing our own religion and allowing other religions to take over. In today’s world, while other religions mostly live in harmony, the only one attempting to take over is Islam. The rest of us just want to coexist in peace.

It is said that Europe is now “post-Christian.” But how does “post-Christian” transform into anti-Christian and pro-Muslim? And what idiocy to promote a religion which is responsible for the most terrorism in the world, which preaches our demise, and which brings to the West crime, hatred and other violence!

In the year 2000, Pope John Paul II made an apology on behalf of the Catholic Church for a multitude of wrongdoings. He sought repentance for the sins of the church over the past 2000 years such as the Crusades, the Inquisition, forced conversions, and sins against women and anti-Jewish acts. Pope Francis recently stated that Judaism is the holy root of Christianity. These things are important to mend the interfaith relationship and to denounce the violence of the past.

Unfortunately, the opposite occurs in Islam. Rather than apologies forpast and present massacres and other violence and mistreatment of those of different faiths, Islamic clerics justify them and continue to incite hatred to this day. Allama Muhammed Farooq Nazimi for example, stated on British television that, “Disrespectful people should be eliminated.”

He later explained, “There is no disagreement about this [the punishment]; there is absolutely no doubt about it that the punishment for the person who shows disrespect for the Prophet is death. No one [among the Islamic scholars] disagrees about this. No one disagrees about this. The Koran, hadith [orally transmitted quotes of Mohammed], the actions of the companions of Prophet Mohammed, all testify to this [punishment] and there is no room for doubt in it. Whoever shows disrespect for Prophet Mohammed will be given the death penalty.”

A Tunisian cleric prayed on live television his “most humble” request: “Oh Allah, you know what those accursed Jews have done, the corruption they spread across Earth… Strike them so that there is not one of them left. Allah, make the men and women sterile.”

Omar Bakri Mohammed said: “When you meet [Westerners], slice their own necks. And when you make the blood spill all over, and the enemy becomes so tired, now start to take from them prisoners. Then free them or exchange them until the war is finished….”

Hate preachers spread their calls for violence against non-Muslims all around the world. Palestinian cleric Ibrahim Madi stated on official Palestinian television, “…The Prophet Muhammad said: ‘The Jews will fight against you but Allah will make you masters over them.’ That is, not only through the bravery of our sons but also Allah will make the Muslim master of the Jew. Blessings upon anyone who has charged at a soldier for the sake of Allah. Blessings upon anyone who has acted for the sake of Allah and has gone on raids for His sake. Blessings upon anyone who has brought up his sons with the education of Jihad and Martyrdom-seeking. Blessings upon anyone who has saved a single bullet in order to put it through a Jew’s head. ..”

One day after the 2005 London bombing, a Palestinian Authority cleric prayed for the genocide of the infidels: “Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists- your (G-d’s) enemies and the enemies of the religion. G-d, count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”

There are countless more examples of what Islamic religious leaders preach to their attentive followers, and there are countless more examples of their followers obeying them. And so the question is, why are we allowing the adherents to the trouble-maker religion immigrate here, prosper here, and even replace our moral ideology with their combative, bloodthirsty and contradictory one? Demonstrating religious sensitivities to the most insensitive religion around is not only illogical but just flat-out stupid. When will the West emerge from this stupor?
