Fact: The average American only knows what "The Media" tells him about Islam. Reality: Much of what has been said "ain't necessarily so". And, other key information about Islam has not been made known to the American public. I have posted a series of articles that will help the reader gain a firmer and more accurate grasp of core aspects of Islam today. These posts may be found at [url]http://glocktalk.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=55&pagenumber=1&sortfield=lastpost&sortorder=desc&daysprune=10&x=10&y=11[/url] Just look for titles beginning with "[b]Islam: ...[/b]"

I read the Colson article and he's right on. In Europe & around the globe, the Catholic church, not that long ago shared some of the same problems -- excessive influence over government, royalty & officials. And then there was Torquemada. Colson describes a system in which the adherents are especially vulnerable to unquestioning manipulation by the religious hierarchy. Why do you think it was so easy for the terrorists to raise money in the USA? For some, they foolishly didn't ask enough questions about the outfits they donated money to. Others probably had a real good idea that they would be supporting Islamic Imperialism, if not terrorism outright. But the belief system Colson talks about supports the idea that even if it might be against U.S. Law, if it promotes the propagation of Islam, it's for the better good, even if innocents die. Maybe not all Muslims believe this, but there are enough of them here in the U.S. to support an underground network that can keep the terrorism rolling. Add in third-world poverty and lack of education, and you have the formula for eventual world-wide strife - Muslim against the rest. We are just seeing the beginning. And a lot of people have little idea of just how much of this is going on already. What was the number of countries where there are Islamic rebel groups and terrorists? At least 40. Think about it: Pretty much the entire Bill of Rights is the antithesitical to the ideology that Colson pictures. For starters: Separation of Church and State Freedom of Expression Individual Right to Bear Arms Self-Incrimination; Right to a Jury of your peers; Search and seizure. This country was started in large part to get away from the kinds of abuses the poor and not-so-poor are subjected to in Islamic countries. Yet we open our arm ro allow more in every year. We have a real conflict between ptoecting our Constitutional Rights and effectively combatting the problem of terrorism. But we could make a big improvement and maybe eliminate a lot of this conflict by enforcing the immigration laws that are already on the books, and tightening the laws, too. Currently, once one is here legally, they can sponsor or have the right to bring in relatives.

Where is that located in the Bill of Rights? I see where it says Congress shall make no law respecting the [b]establishment[/b] of religion, but that doesn't say 'separation of church and state' does it? It took us almost 200 years before the pointy-headed liberals on the Supreme Court decided that 'separation of church and state' was what that phrase meant! These are the same smart guys who, no doubt, will one day tell us that the right of the people in the Second Amendement 'clearly refers to a [u]collective[/u] right'!

Musta bin thinkin' of free exercise. It was embarassing to only be able to name a few out of ten - they were committed to memory once upon a time.
