Islam Has the Best PR Operation in the World
So, the Catholic Church takes sh-t for abuse allegations that happened 20 and 30 years ago. (The absence of recent allegations should show how the Catholics have cleaned house.) The Mormon church gets grief over polygamy, which the church banned over a century ago.
But Islamists set off bombs right and left, stone women to death, hang gays in the public square, and continue to practice slavery… and the entire Western political and media establishment fall over themselves to reassure everyone that this is not real Islam, but only a teeny-weeny fringe of fanatics.
“Islam is a religion of peace.” That is what every Western leader says every time a Muslim sets something off. They never tell us which ones they think are the violent religions. But for Islam it’s a win-win. Knock down a tower and everyone in government says how terrific Islam is. Build a tower and everyone in government says how terrific Islam is. Either way it’s a gain for Islam.
It’s interesting to see the left embrace the Ground Zero Victory Mosque on the basis of “Freedom of Religion,” when they have spent literally decades fighting to eliminate crosses, creches, and the Ten Commandments from public view and outlawing all forms of public prayer. Christians oppose redefining marriage to accommodate gays, that makes them worse than Hitler. Muslims hang gays in the public square or throw them from tall buildings, that makes them a religion of peace.
The left’s embrace of Islam is in direct proportion with their disdain for Christianity. Coincidence?
