It is no secret that the Taliban, al-Qaida and other radical Islamic sects are out to destroy Christianity. Just look at the news and you see Christians routinely killed by followers of Mohammad. “Convert or die.” is a common cry among his followers.
We are in a war in Afghanistan and Iraq only because radical Islamic people decided it was time to start killing Christians inside the United States as well as United States citizens and soldiers abroad.
These fanatical followers of Mohammad are practicing what Mohammad himself did. This led to the Christian Crusades which tried to wipe out the threat and nearly succeeded.
Attacks by Muslim extremists on the United States started years before September 11, 2001 and even well before the first World Trade Center bombing. We have had many attempts inside the United States since 9/11 and the American public only know of the ones that became public, like the recent New York City bombing attempt.
No one prevented this attack. The bomb simply failed to explode and for whatever reason it started smoking instead. A street vendor notified authorities when he saw the smoke.
If that particular bomb had been properly constructed, the authorities would have been sifting rubble for that street vendor’s remains as well as the remains of other United States citizens, visitors and illegal aliens.
The United States is a Republic that was founded on the beliefs and values of The Bible and specifically mentions the Creator (God) as the one who gave us inalienable rights that include, but are not limited to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness long before there were governments. It is because of this founding that the United States has historically fought injustice world-wide.
Many progressives (communists, Marxists and others) constantly accuse the United States of being Imperialistic, but their claims are not proven by the facts. The United States is not an occupier; we have overthrown tyrants like Saddam and his sons that took great pleasure in slowly lowering people into industrial plastic shredders just to hear them scream. We fought the Taliban that believe women who are not kept in their subservient place deserve to be stoned to death.
No other country, Christian or not, has freed 26 million Muslims from tyrannical, torturous governments. We also freed the Christians in those countries so they may worship more openly than they have before. Yes, the remaining radicals still kill Christians, but Christianity is now flourishing.
I would like to paraphrase Julia Ward Howe’s words: Jesus died to make men holy, let us die to make men Free, while God is marching on.
Let’s spread the word of Jesus and his Father, God our Creator.
