If You’re Muslim, It is Okay to Pray in Public
Here’s an interesting video. While Muslim groups in Europe want people to stop saying “Merry Christmas!”, it’s perfectly okay for them to drop everything and pray to Allah in public.
I’m wondering why the guy has to actually get ON his car? Could it be that he wants to be SEEN?
“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words,” (Matthew 6:5-7).
Amazing. Jesus normally went off by Himself to pray, away from the crowds so He could commune with the Father alone. He wasn’t into impressing anyone with His prayers.
In John 17, we read of His high priestly prayer in which He did pray before some of His disciples and there is an excellent reason for it. He specifically wanted them to know WHAT He was praying about and His prayer served to inform them.
People like the guy in the video are simply interested in praying in public so that everyone would notice. He could have just as easily kneeled on the ground next to his taxi, or for that matter, gotten into the back seat and kneeled over the back of the front seat.
We’ve all likely seen photos and videos of a multitude of Muslims blocking streets in places like France, the UK, and elsewhere. When this occurs, you are not supposed to walk through them to get from one side of the street to the other (even if your apartment is directly across from you. As an infidel, you must go around them or problems will result. Never mind that they are blocking traffic – both vehicular and pedestrian. Never mind that if Christians did this, people would walk right through them, curse them, or the Christians themselves would most likely be arrested.
This is the world today. It caters to Islam time and time again, while castigating Christians as “right-wingers.”
Today I learned that the governor of Rhode Island has referred to the Christmas tree at the nation’s capitol as the “holiday tree.” He says he doesn’t want to be offensive and wants to uphold the tradition of separation of church and state. If that’s the case, then there should not even be a tree at the capitol since it is obvious that without Jesus having been born, there would be no Christmas. Apparently, that fact escapes him and many other atheists or agnostics who celebrate Christmas anyway.
I realize that Jesus was likely not born on December 25th and that Christians have simply taken what was a pagan holiday and turned it into something that is beneficial for them. It’s funny how quickly the world fell in line with that as soon as they realized they could make a ton of money by promoting it.
If you go to Jerusalem today and you attempt to actually pray on the Temple Mount, riots would likely break out from the Arab population. At the least, you would be arrested. Why? Because it is against the law for Jews (and often Christians) to pray there. However, it’s fine for Arabs to pray there en masse because of the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque.
The more I learn about Islam, the more I understand it to be a completely repressive ideology that seeks to remove freedoms that we have come to know and appreciate. If I prayed on the top of my car in NYC, I would likely be seen as a moron. I might also receive a visit from New York’s finest telling me that I cannot do that.
A youth group visiting Washington, DC were forbidden from praying on the sidewalk outside the building that houses the Supreme Court. They were simply told to stop or they would be arrested.
Apparently though, in America, if you are Islamic, these rules do not apply because everyone knows that good Muslims must pray five times daily, facing Mecca. We have to give them a pass. Why? Because if we don’t, hell will break loose. When you tell Christians to stop praying (or not to start), hell is not going to break loose. If we disagree with what we have been told, we generally comply and seek out the services of a lawyer. We don’t start getting violent because we have been forbidden to pray.
We will see more and more of this unless politicians who currently have no back bone in place find one and are willing to stand up to the discriminatory policies of Islam. I don’t see that happening though…
