Brittania roolz!!!!1!

There may be signs of hope for Eurabia.

Last week, a bunch of Danes filmed a traditional festival which involves burning an effigy of a witch -- but this year, they substituted The Prophet Mohammed for the witch.

Now, we see that some of those legendary plucky Brits have decided to take the same juvenile, symbolic path and vent a bit of their rage over the terrorist attacks that they have been subject to in the name of Islam:

I guess these Brits have the same attitude towards "gun control" as a lot of Americans: it means hitting your target.

This could be the beginning of a movement. I'm wondering which European nation will spawn the next anti-Islamist backlash, and in what form. For example, how would the French -- renowned masters of both contemptuous and contemptible behavior -- try to top burning Mohammed and shooting up a Koran? Or the Germans?

I find myself hoping it involves pigs...

Mac Lorry:

I wonder if Muslims will ever realize that they can't defend their "religion of peace" by acts of violence and intolerance. In fact, it's their attempts to do so that has damaged and insulted Islam more than anything they accuse the west of. God doesn't need any help from puny humans to defend His honor or bring about His plans. If who you worship needs you to take up arms to defend your religion then either you have misinterpreted the tenets of your faith or who you worship is not God.

nehemiah:

Many muslims are like many "Christians". They profess being one, but don't know much about their religion, do not read their Koran (or Bible for Christians), and do not daily practice it. So to say that a majority of muslims are peaceful is a fairly dumb thing to say -- most of them aren't the real committed muslims.

I will say what needs to be said. The number one enemy of America are the muslims (those who are committed more specifically, but muslims in general as they exert influence on others). As we cannot go individually to check who is violent and who is not, we need to take a practical approach. After all, when we fought Germany in WW2, was every German violent and evil? Most probably were not. We need to take a similar approach.

The number two enemies of America are the Democrats and the Democratic pary.

Nehemia, your brush is too broad. Before the 1400's there were no Bibles around to read. Most the population was illiterate. So, by your logic, they were not Christians. Now-a-days, there is still a significant number of people who cannot read or comprehend, so again, damned to hell. It is not what you do, it is what you believe. ww

nehemiah:

ww,

you're being too simplistic. Reading the Bible does not make you a Christian, but if you profess being one and don't, it tells you something about their commitment (like one's wife who says she loves her husband but does not like to spend time with him).

In an earlier age when printed Bibles were not available, there was oral history. My point is this -- it is not what you say, it's what you do.

nehemiah, so Muslims , if they were peaceful, would be the real committed kind who read their Koran. And the more committed, the more of an enemy they are.

nehemiah:

ww,

when I say "but don't know much about their religion, do not read their Koran . . ." it's beginning a list of evidences that they are muslims more in name (there are many muslims that really don't know much about their actual beliefs).

You're right when you say salvation has nothing to do with it. We tend to however come up too easily with excuses why we can't do things (esp liberals). One might say, "I'm illiterate" -- but if you really want to read, you can learn (there are many free programs), or you can listen to the Bible on tape. Your salvation doesn't depend on it, but if you easily offer up excuses, that sure reflects upon your commitment.

nehemiah:

bryanD,

Let me make this easier for you (since you are one of those that can't read his Bible -- but your excuse is acceptable since you have ably demonstrated your illiteracy).

If you're a true muslim, then you are an enemy of America.

If you're a true Democrat (a member of the Democratic party in its current state), then you are an enemy of America.

Nehemia, I have spent many years sturdying the bible, in formal education and on my own. It is a wonderful journey every time. But unfortunately, some of my fellow readers and researchers become more judgemental, especially to those that love the Lord, go to church, but for whatever reason does not have the where withal to commit to study. I will say the muslim expremists do study the Koran and are committed to it, even if their interpretaion is warped. ww

nehemiah:

ww,

I know from personal experience that one's walk is full of mountains and valleys. So where one is at a point in time doesn't fully reflect one's commitment.

I do want to make something clear, since bryanD seems to have interpreted it the opposite way. The more one is genuinely committed to Christ, the better (and not just outwardly, as were the Pharisees).

The more one is committed to Allah and Mohammed and the muslim religion, the worse. If you're just a "in-name-only" muslim, you're fairly harmless (though kinda clueless). If one is a committed muslim that takes the Koran seriously and is fervent in that faith, then you are dangerous and probably should be taken out.

nehemiah:

bryanD,

As I had said, there are literacy programs for you.

David did indeed fight Saul, but God had anointed David when Saul had left God (so God actually moved David to ride against Saul, so how can David be a "traitor" to God -- he was a man after God's own heart). So just because you're at one time chosen of God, doesn't mean that you always have his favor. One has free will after all, and can always choose to leave Him.

To make things more clear, bryanD, since you seems to intentionally misunderstand. When I am naming enemies of America -- you are one of them. And those that think like you. Is that now clear?

nehemiah(sic), If you're sa... (Below threshold)
bryanD:

nehemiah(sic), If you're saying David didn't consider Saul God's annointed one, then why did David have Saul's shield bearer put to death for "touching" Saul?

And you're wise to avoid the Jeremiads. They don't fit the GWOT sofa samuraisms of you and the other stay-at-homes.

And beware of playing Church. God wants "doers", not nerds who want their fancy's tickled. All "warriors" should gird up their loins and put down the Ding Dongs. If you don't, you're a traitor to yourself. And God hates lazy people, besides. (Remember, God sends many many self-proclaimed "Christians" away from his sight. Some to swats, others to darkness. FYI)

nehemiah:

bryanD,

since you seem to have a delusional view of self, let me clarify. it is very likely that you are also an enemy of God (only God can say, but you're giving much evidence that you are).

"anointed" is only with two n's, lest Lee start criticizing you.

Of course Saul is anointed and David knew that (why are we discussing this anyway?). But Saul left God, and God left Saul. However, he still had a history of having been anointed of God and deserves respect in that sense (like former Presidents deserve respect). Saul was God's anointed, but God chose to take the throne away from him due to his disobeying (for not killing all the enemies, including leaders and women and children and animals -- God is serious when He wants to rid of His enemies).

Why would that take "guts"? I am always amused at the idea that insulting the Bible, in this day and age, is somehow "brave" or "daring".

Mormons and Christians aren't the ones strapping explosives to themselves or flying airplanes into crowded skyscrapers.

Because you're always using the Bible to justify your day-to-day opinions. My reading of the Bible tells me that the greatest lure away from salvation is listening to false Christs and false teachers who present Easy Answers most amenable to the listener.

Life is a series of hard lessons and trouble will come from WITHIN (most kings of Judah and Israel "did evil"). And the best results come from Others: Pharoah, Nebuchadrezzar, Cyrus, Augustus Caesar, Pontius Pilate, were all neccessary and were Shepherds of the Lord who, by hook or crook, led His people where He desired them to go. See Anti-Christ, the last tool to expunge fake Christians from among the elect.

The goody-twoshoes priests and nuns in Jeremiah should be studied by you. (Hint: they make God's children "to fly" and put kerchiefs on God's hands, ostensibly to make rough hands more Smooth. It's pretty advanced stuff, though. Not taught in seminaries since it countermands the wicked Rapture Doctrine and leaves the believers to endure the Tribulation. Another pesky test!

"Condemnation" blog-style? I would suggest you drive a couple miles to a used furniture dealership or the nearest Quik-E-Mart and "condemn" them in person. Or via your local recruiting station.

I'll bet you wouldn't DREAM of it. (Just an educated guess). And they are "true Muslims", most of them, whom I have witnessed giving unsold merchandise (end tables, clothing) to the needy about every two weeks. (Not to me ;) I have a shop in a low rent part of town near the thrift stores, so I see it all.)

bryanD,

And beware of playing Church. God wants "doers", not nerds who want their fancy's tickled. All "warriors" should gird up their loins and put down the Ding Dongs. If you don't, you're a traitor to yourself.

God both calls and equips His people for the works He has prepared for them. A person cannot choose to be called or choose what gifts of the spirit they receive. What a person must guard against is taking on some work without the calling or the gifts to accomplish it. Too many have went rather than being sent.

And God hates lazy people, besides. (Remember, God sends many many self-proclaimed "Christians" away from his sight. Some to swats, others to darkness. FYI)

It sounds like you're of the "reformed" persuasion. God does not hate people, he hates sin. If laziness is a sin, then it's covered by the Cross as all forgivable sins are. The bride's maids left outside the door don't represent believers. They represent those who think they will become believers once they have taken care of earthly matters. Problem is you can't know when your life will end.

twolaneflash:

The Heparin Wars! Gotta love these "modern technology meets muslim mysticism" conflicts. Fatwahs issued like ammo in Fallujah, and somebody is going to die for the insults.

Perhaps Heplock-hate was behind the "allah, allah"-shouting doctor's flaming protest at the Glasgow airport. It will take the fires of hell to burn that kind of contamination from the soul, with or without pig products.

So, in harmony with my British kin, and to celebrate the holiday, I'm having a 4th of July fund-raiser for our wounded warriors. Bring your own weapon or use one of my arsenal. Thousands of freshly printed Korans will be wrapped in fresh pig intestines and offered as targets. The rest of the pig carcasses will be cooked and eaten at the "Independence Day Kill a Koran for Freedom Shootout". A bondfire at dark will incinerate the bullet-shredded chitterling-baked pages, sending a light into the heaven's with our prayers that this hateful, deadly doctrine disappear from earth. Patriotic songs and readings will be performed throughout the day.

Ready on the firing line! Video to follow.

The Brits didn't do the shooting. Semi-auto guns are taboo in the UK. Unless the people shooting at the Koran are Yardies or such but even then the foliage and target area doesn't lend itself to the UK IMHO.

My point is live your life and do right. Waiting for God's call is folly and the refuge of lay-abouts. The Corban thing. Unless there is personal sacrifice and discomfort, it ain't a gift from God. The rewards are given in the next life. This life is a test and initiation. That's what is meant by to gain (true) life, one should be prepared to sacrifice in this. And to underline this fact, God's people (in the Bible) are by and large, foolish or wicked, and are good mainly for the bloodline that Christ would come through to rescue our misereable asses. See Solomon, the "wisest" human, who eventually fell to worshipping Ishtar due to the influence of his wife. There's a moral lesson there.

"God does not hate people, he hates sin."

True (that's why Hellfire is quick and the pain rather short, up in smoke; it's the 1000 year waiting room that is torture for those whose names are not written in the Book of Life).

Remember though, as tools of sin, there is hate for those who have attempted (by flattering words or violence) to lead God's Chosen astray. The famous description of these reprobates in the end times: they with "marked" Hands and forheads. What that means in apocalyptic language is: those who THINK (with their minds) and DO (with their hands) Satan's Work. Because a Tattoo would not fool anyone to follow anti-Christ, would it? No.
One might as well write in flourescent paint: "I'm with The DEVIL! Join Us!"
The lesson is that idiots who only pretend to know the Bible will not know that Anti-Christ will not arrive with horns on, but will look like Christ himself, to take to himself so-called Christians too dumb to know better. That's when these fools will call for the mountains to fall on them, to hide them from the true Christ that follows. As it is written "The Son of Man shall not come til the Man of Perdition be revealed."

Most churches teach nothing of that little trick, Insteaad many teach that God stalls in mid-air and calls everyone up before returning with a can of whup-ass and that everybody who thinks they're saved is saved/always saved. T'ain't so.

Mac Lorry:

bryanD,

My point is live your life and do right. Waiting for God's call is folly and the refuge of lay-abouts.

Too many think they can work their way into salvation, but salvation does not come by works, but by grace. It's hard for some to accept that because it runs counter to human nature. But what does the Bible say?

Now as to the love of the brethren, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; for indeed you do practice it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more, and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you, so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12

We find in many verses in the NT that love of the brethren is the test that shows who is a Christian and who is not. But beyond that test you can excel still more by leading a quiet life and minding your own business. If God needs a warrior to bring down a stronghold of the devil God will call that person and equip him to accomplish what is not humanly possible to do. Selecting yourself and going on your own merit and in your own strength is foolish at best and results only in dead works.

Unless there is personal sacrifice and discomfort, it ain't a gift from God.

Loving the brethren requires self-sacrifice. I know a man who gave another person his brand new Van. I know a man who cleaned out his savings account an gave it to someone who needed a car. I know a man who's ambition is to lead a quiet life and attend to his own business and work with his hands. Are you going to say that such a man is not a Christian?

I know you have meditated on God's word from prior comments you have posted and you have shown a deep understanding. It seems, however, that you have skipped over some of the simple truths in your desire for understanding, yet it's the simple truths that are the foundation of the Gospel.

CNN had a special about Muslims in England on Saturday. It was pretty interesting and very impressive for CNN to run it.

One part in particular intrigued me very much.

Some Muslims were in front of a Catholic Church calling the Catholics who came out names and attacking them (verbally) and their religion.

A Brit, standing to one side, said (paraphrasing from memory), "If we went to a mosque we would get our butts kicked or arrested for inciting hatred."

If they didn't figure it out after the Vietnamese related how much it helped our enemies in Vietnam*, why should we expect them to learn the lesson now?

*quote from article
Bui Tin, who served on the general staff of the North Vietnamese army, received South Vietnam's unconditional surrender on April 30, 1975. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal after his retirement, he made clear the anti-war movement in the United States, which led to the collapse of political will in Washington, was "essential to our strategy."

Visits to Hanoi by Jane Fonda and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and various church ministers "gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses."

Of course, being a commie, he says it's because of democracy, but it's really about people who think that the need for them to control America justifies anything.
