Intolerance that masquerades as freedom

Reader comment on item: An International Law to Respect Religion?

Submitted by Roy Weinberg (United States), Mar 23, 2008 at 11:36

Indeed, an international law that could be enforced to "respect" all religions would sound the death knell for Christianity. Obviously, the world would have to be under the authority of a global government to enforce legislation such as this and given the direction that we're headed in, Revelation 13 is looking more and more a real possibility in the not too distant future.

And Christians (at least those who practice their faith for more than an hour or so on a Sunday) better wake up because preaching John 14:6 could land them before an international tribunal if we ever get to that point. So Muslims who seek to silence those who reject Islam through such a repugnant law better be careful about what they wish for. Islam and ecumenism mix about as well as oil and water and if you're intention is to duct-tape the mouths of those who criticize your religion, then you'd better be prepared to wear that tape as well.

But Muslims who float such a preposterous idea are just bluffing, because they're merely attempting to put a facade of tolerance on an extremely intolerant religion. Islam's true goal isn't just to silence all other religions, but to destroy them and establish a global caliphate that enforces Sharia with the sword. Anything that comes out of the Islamic world that promises "tolerance and dialogue" with other religions should be rejected and flushed down the commode of dishonesty.
