Religionists Fall Prey Also

Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey

Submitted by John Voisey (United States), Dec 24, 2003 at 12:45

RE: Your Comment "Comment: CAIR here rejects the American principle of free speech and the belief that differences in opinion should be dealt with through reasoned discourse; it wants to close down debate. I can think of no U.S. organizations except the militant Islamic ones that deploy comparable tactics."

I am a devout man of faith in the Word of God and teach Bible Doctrine to a small group of believers. I agree with Paul Harvey's original statement however, his capitulation is his example to us in America not to back down from truth.

As to your quoted statement, the "religionist" groups in the US and abroad do employ the same tactics and have done so on many fronts, ie boycotts etc. This is not their function in the age we now live. Religious organizations find themselves in the same camp as Islamic organizations of attempting to fight "evil with evil".
