Secularism?

in response to reader comment: YOU should come to know Jesus

Dear Nura,

Please do not confuse and combine democracy with secularism. Democracy as in America, guarantees you as an individual the right to persue whatever religion you desire, free from government control. You are even free to practice islam if that is your wish.

Governments on the other hand must be secular to preserve the rights of individuals to follow thier beliefs without intervention by religions. This does not or ever will exist in islamic countries. Democracy as bad as you percieve it to be is what will free you, your belief systems, and the individuals of the world. And, yes I read the Christian Bible and the revelation of Jesus Christ as given to John. Yes, the description of the anti-Christ as muhammed and islam and his deeds run a parallel course with revelation.

American democracy gives me the right to follow my beliefs and I respect the rights of all other peaceable religions. I fully exclude islam in this argument because it is not a religion but rather an ideology of world domination. The world is full of self righteous indignant muslims defending thier " religion of peace" while the real nature of the beast reveals itself in horrendous violent acts against innocent people who do not agree with them.

The veil of secrecy and hypocrisy is being lifted about islam and the world is hungry to know more about what drives it and its ultimate goal. When you are an appologist for islam, you sound off as a true hypocrite and try to absolve the horror of that religion as being the fault of the western free societies. It does not fly any more. Put a pretty bow on a book of crap, and it may be pretty, but it is still a book full of crap. Ditto with the appologetics of islam, we are not fooled anymore.

peace.
