Christophobia is Alive and Well…
I was over at the Islamophobia Watch site and read through some of their articles that they believe details anti-Muslim sentiments. It’s really difficult to take it seriously because they are so ill-informed. In fact, for people in the know, what is presented there comes across as outright lies; lies that are designed to cause people to sympathize with the plight of the poor Muslim.
This is not to knock Muslims. It’s to knock Islam and I’ll say that right up front. I’ve read too many articles about how Muslims are allegedly mistreated and how people seem to be out to get them. The truth though is that much of the trouble that Muslims experience is due to their own cowardice and manipulation of the media.
For some reason, the mainstream media does sympathize with Islam and Muslims in particular. Christianity? Judaism? It’s open season on both of these religions and all but the most jaded and blind are unable to see it.
Recently, the Grammy Awards ridiculed Catholics over the contraceptive issue foisted upon Americans because of Mr. Obama’s Obamacare health package. It forces religious organizations (presumably through their insurance companies) to provide contraception to their employees. The reality though is that most religious organizations who are able to offer health insurance to their employees are self-insured, with another company simply administrating it. In essence then, when Mr. Obama says he has given some wiggle room by forcing insurance companies to provide contraception, it’s really moot since the religious organizations who self-insure their employees are the ones still giving the contraception out.
So the Grammy Awards made fun of Catholics because we know that Catholics want women to be barefoot and pregnant, right? As one Democrat recently put it, this is also apparently what Republicans want too. I wonder sometimes if politicians actually think about what they are going to say before they say it or do they simply open their mouths and wait to hear what comes out?
Not long ago on “The View,” the five musketeers – Walters, Hasselbeck, Goldberg, Behar, and Shepherd – had a ex-Jewish orthodox guest on and proceeded to lambaste orthodox Jewish practices.
The point is simple. If you’re Muslim, you have protection; protection from the media and that says a lot, but it doesn’t answer the question “why??” and I’m not sure I can answer it either.
I’m tempted to start a “Christophobia Watch” site, but it would be a full-time job, what with everything that’s happening in the world today. Persecution is alive and well in many parts of the world and unfortunately for Muslims, they seem to be some of the biggest perpetrators of anti-Christian hate and bigotry.
Anyone who knows anything about what is going on in the world today knows about what is happening in Egypt between Muslims and Coptic Christians, who are being persecuted in many ways, from having their churches bulldozed, to being thrown into prison for no reason, to being beaten or killed…again, for no reason other than they are Christians and the Muslims in Egypt and other Islamic areas no longer want to deal with a Christian presence.
In DeKalb, GA, Muslims continue to show one neighborhood just how little they care. They have a make-shift mosque and they continually rack up the tickets for illegal parking (blocking neighbor’s driveways), creating a disturbance, building ramshackle shanty’s without permits, creating parking lots without permits and the list is growing. They don’t care, yet they are the downtrodden people, on the receiving end of an alleged never-ending stream of Islamic bigotry and hatred.
The fact of the matter is that Islamophobia is a term coined by groups like CAIR. Any word with “phobia” tagged onto the end of it is designed to make people shut up and go away. If Muslims can refer to non-Muslims (infidels) enough times as being Islamophobic, then it will be believed even when it is not true.
The people in DeKalb, GA simply want the Muslims to play by the same set of rules that are expected of everyone. Instead, the Muslims there play by their own rules and to heck with everyone else. The question then is how does that engender a neighborhood of peace? Simply put, it doesn’t. So once again, we have Muslims who are creating problems, then blaming others because someone is complaining over the laws that are being broken.
Many Muslims who live in countries like Egypt and other areas within the Middle East do not have to play by the rules that we play by here in the United States. That’s understood. However, they can’t be that stupid to think that the way they may have lived in Egypt is the way they can live here, can they? Apparently, they can.
The tragedy is that there are many websites that delve into the arena of Islamophobia and they are quick to lay the blame squarely at the feet of everyone else. I have yet to read one of these websites where any blame at all is assessed at the feet of Islam or of the Muslim. It is always someone else’s fault.
This must stop, but I doubt that it soon will. I’m thinking that one day, people will have reached the boiling point and will take matters into their own hands. I’m not advocating that, mind you, I’m simply stating that it is a real possibility due simply to the fact that people are coming round to see Islam as a favored ideology, to the exclusion of everything else.
I’m also not saying that the media should make fun of any organization, but when for instance, will “The View” have a guest on who escaped Islam and is afraid for their life (which would be the case)? For the ex-orthodox Jewish woman who vented her spleen, was she really brave as Barbara Walters intoned? Hardly. Is she fearing for her life these days? I can’t imagine it.
The truth of the matter is the more vocal Muslims become, the more the media will cater to them. When that happens, Christians and Jews will become even bigger targets.
Folks, if you’re a Christian, be prepared for some heavy-duty persecution coming our way. While it will be a great opportunity to witness to those within Islam, it will also test the mettle of Christians everywhere.
Islamophobia? No, that really does not exist, except in the mind of liberals and radical Muslims. Christophobia? Jewishphobia (otherwise known as anti-Semitism)? They exist and unfortunately, it appears as though the world is just starting to get warmed up to these two phobias.
We can’t say we haven’t been warned. The signs are everywhere.
