Roanoke Times Embraces Islam; Christianity Not So Much

-
Roanoke Times, 8-22-10:
Pg 1: Flap tests commitment to tolerance; The mosque debate reveals Americans’ level of religious acceptance.
Pg 1 & 4, Horizon: America’s battle is not with Islam; and Religious liberty for all – or none.
-
For a group of people who cannot find a good word to say for Christianity when atheists and the ACLU attack every symbol of Christianity, including hammering the Boy Scouts because God is in their oath, they certainly have decided that their Virtual-Muslim President and his Muslim associates deserve total and complete dogmatic support. They sure killed a lot of good trees for this one!
-
Their views have been that the nasty and vile anti-Christ cartoons at VT were a wonderful expression of a first amendment exercise and Christ in a bottle of urine on display at the Washington JFK Art Center brought artistic creativity to a whole new and wonderful level.
The editors of the Roanoke Times canonized William & Mary president, Gene Nichol, who arrogantly and unilaterally removed the Christian Cross from the W&M Chapel that had been there in the Chapel for 314 years.
Their paper and this blog are overflowing with examples of their support for every anti-Christian issue that surfaces.
-
However, now the liberal-progressive initiative is: let’s use Religious Tolerance to force Religious Acceptance including any and all activities and behaviors. That would include:
Muslim Sharia law and the associated Madrasas that are integrated within the Muslim society.
Islam is not just a Religion – it is a dogmatic Government System that controls its subjects through Sharia Law with unbelievably harsh penalties and restrictions on all aspects of life. One would think the editorial girls at the Roanoke Times would be totally repulsed at the fate of women in that system. Apparently not!
-
No mention here about Reciprocity or the fact that this group of people harbor and support our enemies that have declared war upon us and have killed and are killing our people and our friends.
Where are the Islamic rejections of the Radicals and what are their programs to marginalize and then systematically eliminate them?
How many cathedrals and synagogues have they allowed in Mecca?
What steps are being taken by Muslims to embrace other faiths and show tolerance for other beliefs?
Are they still trying to find and kill Salman Rushdie and the cartoonists who drew images of Mohammad?
Have they rejected (canceled) the Jihad that has been launched against us?
-
We all have an obligation as Christians and Americans to tolerate all humane and decent people and behaviors.
However, we not only have the right, but an obligation, to not accept bad behaviors and those who practice them.
There can be a very valid and vast chasm between Tolerance and Acceptance.
This concept is something that we all should recognize lest we all move down to the lowest common denominator of behavior.
-
I find the liberal-progressive bias of the Editors of the Roanoke Times to be inconsistent with their obligations to be proper American news people. I tolerate them and their behaviors, but I do NOT accept them!
As Americans, we can still do that (so far anyway)!
