I don’t believe that what we are witnessing in the 21st century is an organized, planned conspiracy for world domination. I think that this is what universalizing religions do – they spread, they convert and they seek to grow. However, the world has never seen a universalizing religion like Islam. Islam is aggressive, it is vocal, and it has never in its history discouraged the use of violence. Islam is formidable and Islam is coming for us all.
Liberals will, in any discussion of religion, often quickly move to counter the negative of a religion with the line “But Christianity…” after which they’ll launch into a tirade of the Crusades or a discussion of the Inquisition or some of the various other crimes committed at the hands of Christians somewhere in the world. It’s a straw man argument because the leftists aren’t willing to recognize the key difference between Christianity and Islam.
The difference between the two is Scripture. In the New Testament, violence by Christians is almost never even considered. In the Old Testament, the violence is given the boundaries of historical context, each specific action had its reasons from a historical perspective. In the Islamic Quran, most of the passages which speak to violence against the enemies of Islam are left ambiguous for the reader’s own discernment.
