Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Sep 20, 2007 at 02:43

Obviously "Ban Islam" is a great opportunity to hear many far reaching, world-wide voices (Lithuania; Pakistan; India; Italy; Germany as well as U.S.). Two ways to look at the situation:

There is a religious war that is and has been comming to a head.

There is a political, in the guise of religion (Islamism), movement that seeks to dominate.

Both are shot down when up against The United States.

I personally believe in Christ; everything, I stress EVERYTHING, is very lucid and comprehensive with reguards to the current Islamic vs. Western problem.

Volition is the key (this includes, of course, volitional consequences, volitional responsibilty, volition in and of itself.).

While I study the Bible in the original languages, and ergo am priveleged to information that simplifies a complex problem, the United States is THE stalwart against Islamism; it is not neccessary for me to apply Biblical Doctrinal information other than to point out that the United States was founded by Christians; and true to the 'religion' of Christianity, they separated Church and State.

A very small, compared to what the Bible reveals, comfort. However, viewing "Theocratical Rule" which is so dominate, and indeed prerequisite to much of the Middle East and all of Islamism, is to me the greatest indicator of the futillity of the Islamic agenda. The United States, however 'relative philosophy' the masses become, will never let go of it's freedom. And, lack of freedom is the one imparative required for Islamism to truly florish. We have freedom of religion; however, if you ask an Islamist, what religion is the U.S.? "Christian" will be the reply. So, Islamists, whether going the political route or the religious route are up against the rule of law in the U.S. This will be their great obstacle, their downfall. The U.S. is pre-dominately Christian by volition; freedom of religion is law. Their "Theocratical" vision of Islam has no more a chance in America than does Osama running for President. -JS
