We had a good meeting with some leaders up in Canada on Motion M103. I am starting to understand what those of you in Canada are facing. There is a strong liberal majority in the Canadian government, and they are behind this motion becoming law. If the vote goes along party lines, which it probably will, it will become law.
We need to understand that M103 is about favoring one religion. They disguise it by saying it is about preventing religious discrimination, but in fact it is about making it illegal to say anything negative about Islam. There are already laws that prevent religious discrimination. M103 only mentions one religion, Islam. It is mentioned through the word “Islamophobia.” Its purpose is to block and stop Islamophobia.
No one has ever defined what Islamophobia is. If you have an ambiguous word as part of the law, lawyers will interpret it any way they want. Here is how it will work. A Christian or a Christian group will say, We don’t want Sharia Law in our country. The lawyers for Muslims will say that this is Islamophobia because Sharia is a part of Islam.
This bill opens the door for Sharia, and any other tenant of Islam, to be practiced in Canada. This means that not only can you not prevent it, you can’t even speak out against it. This basically shuts down freedom of speech. Anyone who objects to Islam, or any precept of Islam, will be considered a criminal, and will be taken to court.
No other religion is protected by M103. Anyone will be able to speak against Christianity, or any other religion, but not against Islam.
The liberal party is OK with this because this is a minority group that is growing in numbers, and they can get votes from them. They are foolishly welcoming in a group that, if given the opportunity, will shut down the freedoms of all Canadians. The end goal of Islam is to make Islam the only accepted religion in the world.
it seems like the only way to stop this is to appeal to the Senators. The Senators in Canada are not elected, and the liberals don’t have a majority.
We are waiting for a report to come out from Canadian Heritage. It is due in the next 30 days or so, and we will keep you informed on this issue as more information is available.
In the Stop The Religious Hate meeting we had this week, I made a mistake that I need to correct. We looked at the history of those who had killed others in the name of their religion. Sadly, there were periods in history where people were being killed in the name of Christianity. A perversion of Christianity had grown, and during the 11th through 13th centuries we had the Crusades. It was taught that killing Muslims was justified because they were unbelievers and they needed to die. You don’t get this from the Bible, and this is not true Christianity.
The Catholic Church was the power behind the Crusades, and it is estimated that 5% of the world’s population was killed during these three centuries. It is estimated that 1.7 million people died. That includes those who died on both sides.
The data I had for the years of the Inquisition was wrong. I thought the number was incredibly low. This was 400 years of war between Protestants and Catholics. the highest estimate of deaths is 68 million. In all of the killings in the name of Christianity, the highest estimate would be about 80 million.
When we compare this with those killed by Islam, it pales in comparison. The estimated deaths in the name of Islam is 270 million. We have a longer history, Christianity is 2,000 years old, while Islam is only 1,400 years old.
In the name of Allah, there have been 120 million Africans, 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus, 10 million Buddhists, and hundreds of thousands of Jews have been killed.
Let me put this in perspective. In the United States we have had a number of wars. If you add up all of the Americans who have been killed in all of these wars, the total is only 1.4 million. Islam has killed in the name of Allah 270 million compared to Christianity’s 80 million. The 270 million is not much less than America’s total population, which is a little over 300 million.
The Bible does not teach the taking of the lives of others, but Islam does, but Christianity does not. Christians are taught to live peaceably with others.
Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:17-21)
Jesus taught that we are to love our enemies.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; (Matthew 5:44)
The Qur’an teaches something entirely different. Surah 2:216 says, Fighting is prescribed for you, In Surah 4:89, slay them wherever you find them. In Surah 9 it says, Fight the idolaters utterly. Other passages say, lay i wait for them, strike them at their neck. In Islam it is a clear command to kill those who will not convert to Islam.
Surah 9 is the last words from Muhammad, and it is the most violent of all. Keep in mind that Islam has the doctrine of abrogation that says when there is a contradiction between two passages, the one given last carries the day. Early in his ministry Muhammad said to live peacefully with others, but later, when he had a army that could force others to convert, the revelations changed to kill the infidel, and abrogated the peaceful passages.
In Chapter 9:29 we have the great financial solution. Muhammad declares Christians to be polytheists and says to fight the people of the book (Christians and Jews) until they pay jizya, Jizya is a protection tax. The Muslims would let them live, but they had to pay a tax that could be up to 50% of what they owned and 50% of what they earned.
This tells us why Islam had killed so many people, and is still doing so. The killing in Christianity came because of a perverted form of Christianity.
