Not If I Can Help It!

There’s something deeply disturbing about the fact that Christians who are concerned about the spread of Shariah into the United States cannot speak openly without threats of violence.  WND is reporting that Cornerstone Church of Madison, TN, is was forced to find another venue for its Preserving Freedom Conference.  It had been scheduled to take place at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, but the Hotel management decided to cancel their contract due to threats and intimidation. Why Eric Holder isn’t investigating this, rather than sending guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels?  If Americans can’t discuss these issues without threats of violence, all the clap-trap about how “we’re not at war with Islam” is just empty rhetoric.  If Americans can be threatened and intimidated in this way, the Islamists are already winning.

It astonishing to me that in the first instance, a hotel would cower like this.  What isn’t clear is whether the Hutton Hotel’s management forwarded threatening and intimidating emails and letters to authorities, or otherwise filed a report with police.  The speakers scheduled for the event included Pamela Geller, Jay Sekulow, and Geert Wilders, among many others.  Stifling the free speech of Christian Americans is apparently fine, but you’d better not say the first critical word about Islam, Shariah, or the widespread notion in the Muslim world that America must be destroyed.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are under attack on all fronts.  While the Islamists attempt to undermine American culture and law, the left is doing the same.  The Islamists do it from within their religious institutions, while the leftists do it under the auspices of government and popular media.  Nobody will be immune to the ultimate result of this course we’re on, and it’s senseless to pretend that we can take some sort of “wait and see” approach.

As Geert Wilders noted:

“Do not allow Islam to gain a foothold here,” Wilders said. “Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by Islamic Shariah law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians.”

If we cave in to threats and intimidation, they have already established a foothold.  This will not stop until we confront it openly.  Many like to minimize the threat posed by the spread of Islamic culture in America, with Shariah law being imported and used to determine cases in American courts.  We’ve already seen how ths has worked in Europe, particularly France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, but if this is permitted to take root here, we will face a spreading misery worse even than our current political leadership inflicts upon us at present.

Americans of any description or any faith should be free to speak their minds without fear of violence.  That our federal government now essentially turns a blind eye to this growing threat should tell you something about the mindset of our current administration.  Reversing this course is the purpose for which we must nominate and elect a real conservative, and not some noodle-spine technocrat.  At this time in American history, there really is no room for that sort of “moderation.”  The only compromise between life and death is a slow death.  We mustn’t permit this to be our country’s fate.

Update: Newt Gingrich Calls for Ban on Shariah in US
