Muslims and their leftist sympathizers have taken to social media and major news outlets to demand that a Baptist church remove a sign which they say is “bigoted” against Islam. Expecting the peaceful pastor to cave, they were shocked and enraged when he not only refused to remove it, but offered the perfect response.
Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church in Oregon has caused a disturbing stir in self-important hypocrites who believe that Islam is a supreme religion that should never be criticized. The church in Hood River has caused the thought police to sound the alarm on bigotry, proving their own intolerance.
WSBT rushed to the scene of a political correctness crime, in which the Baptist church displayed a message on their sign declaring, “Wake up Christians. Allah is not our God. Muhammad not greater than Jesus.” Likewise, the other side reads, “Only the Bible is God’s word. ‘Holy book.’ Koran is just another book.”
Hood River resident Eric Cohn was nearly in tears over the church stating what God has already stated in the Bible, saying that his feelings were hurt when he looked at the message board.
“I literally had to stop and back up and make sure I saw what I saw, and I was profoundly offended and upset by it,” Eric Cohn said.
Cohn wasn’t the only one wishing that the U.S. would outlaw free speech. Hood River Mayor Paul Blackburn allowed his feelings to get the best of his logic, and he most likely hopes to use his political platform to do away with said pesky freedom.
“I was really annoyed and sad,” Hood River mayor, Paul Blackburn, said. “I am annoyed that in this political season there’s a solid case of ugly going on. I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘oh, it’s okay to be a bigot now.'”
Fortunately, Pastor Michael Harrington is more concerned with what his God says than whining secular multiculturalists. He promised not to remove the sign until he has another message that needs to be heard, and invites anyone who opposes his stance to civilly discuss the issue over a cup of coffee.
“I’m not politically correct. I’ve never been politically correct, but I think I’m biblically correct, and that’s what matters to me,” Harrington said. “It isn’t against any particular denomination. It’s just the fact that I have taught and will continue to teach that I have one God, one way of salvation, and one Bible that’s holy.”
Apparently, Cohn and Blackburn think that declaring what your religion teaches is “bigoted,” but only if you’re a Christian. If Muslims erected a sign stating, “Men are in charge of women by right…as for those wives from whom you fear arrogance — forsake them in bed and beat them [Quran 4:34],” these ignorant men would applaud them for being so open-minded, right? Or perhaps they’d like one that says, “I will cast terror into the hearts of unbelievers and you will strike off their heads and every fingertip [Quran 8:12].”
The truth is that uneducated leftists like Cohn and Blackburn have no idea that every time a Muslim says “Allahu Akbar,” they are openly declaring “Allah is greater,” as in “Allah is greater than your God, your religion, and your prophet.” Each time they recite the Shahada, they confess that there is only one god, Allah, and he is not the trinity (Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit) but one being without a Son, and Muhammad, not Jesus Christ, is his highest prophet. So, will useful idiots Cohn and Blackburn chastise Muslims for being so bigoted, or do they want to keep their heads?
If these talking heads would simply read the Quran and hadith for themselves, they would not only see that 109 Quranic verses command violent jihad against unbelievers like themselves, but that the Islamic Prophet Muhammad himself modeled this murderous behavior.
Aside from taking a 9-year-old child bride into his marriage bed, raping two sex slaves after beheading their families, and celebrating the ambush of a peaceful Jewish tribe that refused to pledge allegiance to his troops with a mass beheading, Muhammad executed anyone who insulted him or his beliefs, including women, children, and the blind.
What Cohn and Blackburn are doing is adhering to Sharia law by perpetuating that the criticism of Islam shouldn’t be allowed, and defending the one religion most demanding of respect while doing the least to earn or give it. In every Muslim majority country, the religious minorities are persecuted, oppressed, and eventually wiped out.
There is no freedom of speech, freedom of religion, LGBT rights, women’s rights, or special interest groups under Sharia law, which Allah has commanded all Muslims to establish, adhere, and enforce. Liberal non-Muslims like Cohn and Blackburn defending the religion of Sharia is like Jews defending the rise of Nazi ideology in the 1930s.
Only when the most demanding religion, Islam, infiltrated the West did the left seek to cater to an ideology and religious law that seeks to wipe out atheism, pro-choice, transgenderism, and immodest women. They are unknowingly supporting an ideology that opposes their own, and they will succeed in eliminating it just as they have in every country they’ve out-populated.
