Islam Gets More “Freedom of Religion” than Christianity

“Burning the Koran is Worse than Burning the Bible”

If you think that Christians are not still being persecuted in the U.S. and Europe, you only have to look at the hypocrisy of the news media when it comes to religious freedom.  Christianity is a second-rate religion and does not rate the same degree of freedom as Islam, according to some of the media and even government officials.

For example, in a published interview between Bobby Ghosh of Time magazine and NBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, they agreed that burning the Koran is “worse” than burning the Bible.  Their reason? The Koran is the word of God, whereas the Bible is not!

Bobby Ghosh (Time Magazine): The thing to keep in mind that’s very important here is that the Koran to Muslims, it is not — it is not the same as the Bible to Christians. The Bible is a book written by men. It is acknowledged by Christians that it is written by men. It’s the story of Jesus.

Chuck Todd (NBC Chief White House Correspondent): Yes.

Ghosh: But the Koran, if you are a believer, if you’re a Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man. It is transcribed, is directly the word of God. That makes it sacred in a way that it’s hard to understand if you’re not Muslim. So the act of burning a Koran is much more — potentially much, much more inflammatory than —

Todd: Directly attacking — directly attacking God.

Ghosh: — than if you were to burn a — burn a Bible.

And this phenomenon is not limited to the U.S. As stated by David Simpson, a member of the British (UK) Parliament:

In the United Kingdom, the policy seems to be that people can do whatever they like against Christianity – criticise it or blaspheme the name of Christ – as long as they do not insult Islam.

The UK controversy arose when a public employer, who allowed Muslims to keep religious artifacts on the dashboards of their vans. When a Christian driver, however, put a small cross on the dashboard of a van, he was threatened with termination if he did not remove it, because it might insult Muslims.

I hate to point out the obvious to these people: Muslims, in the name of Islam, are murdering the citizens of your countries. Of course, this does not apply to all Muslims, but to “extremists”. Unfortunately, these extremists appear to be in charge of a number of countries in North Africa and the Middle East, where Christians are regularly arrested for “blasphemy” and, in some cases, murdered.

One can only wonder what our Founding Fathers, who wrote the First Amendment, would think about this.

    I believe the antiChrist will arise from Islam. I am an avowed Islamaphobic. Why not fear those who have sworn to convert or kill one? Islam is evil. Mohammed was a pedophile and a drunk. By the way, allah, is not I AM. allah was the household god of the moon of Mohammed’s family pantheon of gods when they were polytheistic. AND the quran was written by a man! by Mohammed! not by a god. The beginning of the quran is an almost word for word rip off of the Old Testament of the Christian bible. I AM is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel (Jacob). He said so Himself. If His name was allah, He would have told that to Moses when Moses asked. Don’t let the Muslims trick you with that, “We all worship the same god.” They lie. The quran tells them to lie to infidels (anyone who is not a Muslim) in order to further Islam. Wise up, America! Do you really want to equate a religion that advocates, indeed, promotes lying and killing? Christianity promotes love and peace. Christians help people who don’t believe as they do, and don’t hurt them. Christ taught us to pray for our enemies, not kill them, as Mohammed urges Muslims. God help America!

    Well said, Maureen!

    The other days a comedian requested a moment of silence for “our lord and savior Barack Obama”. I did not see the video but I am told that the audience cheered. – This was like a stab to my heart.

    We Christians have to stand in confidence, as St. Paul advised us. Everything seems to be headed in a downward spiral – and not just in our beloved America. But we Christians must utterly trust Him, even if we are witness to the destruction of our world or lose our very lives. – And it may come to that for many of us, but to die for Christ is to die gloriously. – So let us live our lives in peace, without fear.
