Wow, what a racist, spiteful tirade by Mr. Jason Johnson. His column title is a bit misleading. Not only did I “Gag,” but I think I threw up in my mouth a little. Jason has put his ignorance on display for all of us to marvel at and for devout Muslims to laugh at. Jason’s head is firmly planted in the sand, which will make it only that much easier for his head to be cut off by those devout Muslims who wish to do so. Are all Muslims inclined towards terrorism? Of course not . . . some Christians don’t follow the Words of their God either.
Jason’s true ignorance is showing when he tries to acquaint World Outreach Church’s expansion to the mosque approval. Perhaps Jason needs to ask Pastor Jackson just how many OPEN, public hearings were conducted to gain approval from the many government agencies in the area? Oh, but maybe it’s just too easy for Jason to spout off on a subject wherein he is simply clueless.
Why were there not “people marching in the streets” to protest the recent expansion of World Outreach Church? Well, let’s see, when was the last time that Born Again Christians were found loading their females up with explosives and sending them out to kill people? Hint: Never.
Jason (opining on Lou Ann’s rationale) says, “if the Islamic center is designed to fracture our moral foundation, then the people of that religion are immoral.” In case you haven’t noticed, Islam does not have the same “moral foundation” as Christianity. Jesus said to “Love your neighbor as thyself.” There is no comparable message for the followers of Islam. There are, however, plenty of passages that tell followers of Islam to take over the infidels (that would be anyone that does not swear allegiance to Allah) and subdue them.
Christianity does not condone the killing of family members to preserve a family’s “honor.” Yes, I love my neighbor as myself, but “myself” does not fly airplanes into buildings for the purpose of killing innocent people. As Jason admonished Lou Ann, there are many books that tell the truth about the Muslim agenda, but it’s obvious that he hasn’t, or can’t, read them. Pot, kettle—black?
And “xenophobic”? I reject that. I suspect that many of us who do not desire to see a HUGE House of Islam built in our county have absolutely no “fear” of foreigners. What we DO have is the ability to see a possible threat to our country and our way of life that people like Jason apparently refuse to see. Don’t worry Jason, those of us who are prepared will protect you . . . maybe.
I had ended my rebuttal at this point; however, I let a good friend of mine—who just happens to be an Ex-Islamic Imam—read it and his only comment was that it seemed a bit harsh and that I would not change anyone’s mind with it. Actually, I wasn’t trying to. People like Jason are like horses that you can take to water, but you can’t make them drink.
My friend told me to just ask everyone who is in doubt about the long-term purposes of devout Muslims to simply take a rational look at what Europe is dealing with and, believe it or not, here in the USA in Dearborn, Mich. This is not fantasy, it is current reality. Islam’s long term goal is to have the whole world under the banner of Islam. If you doubt that, you need to study-up, because you are one of those who will help in our downfall.

(In reply to last edition’s “Gagflex”) Jason should think about some common sense before he starts writing and consult a dictionary.
Yes, Jason, the Christians did come to America to find religious freedom. That being said, why would Christians want to find a place for a religion that vows to wipe out all other religions?
I will be for a mosque in the U.S. when even one single Islamic nation begins to allow non-Islamic, even Christian, churches to be built and operate in their own territory.
And xenophobic’s meaning is connected to stoicism. If the Christians are being vocal and demonstration, how are they being stoic?
To the Editor:
It comes as no surprise that a recent poll finds that some 18 percent of Americans now believe that the President is a Muslim.
And it is no surprise to those of us who from day one believed he was of Islam.
When the White House spokesman was quizzed on of what faith he was, it was stated in so many words, that: “He is of the Christian faith, but prays in private, going to no church . . .”
It’s somewhat strange that a president of the United States refuses to announce the church he attends, when he should be the leader in showing the American people the path to follow in obeying God, the creator of all, including this vast, unlimited universe.
Therefore, if indeed he is a Muslim, these prayers that he speaks of, are they to this foreign god which calls for the beheading of “infidels”?
What a travesty, that we, the American people, elected this man to the highest office in the land, only to find that he is nothing more than an imposter, and one dedicated to the destruction of America!
This I believe with all of my heart, that Barack Obama was placed in this office by the Muslims themselves (and satan the devil), so that they could—from the inside—destroy America, bringing it to its knees in a war that could not have been won through conventional warfare.
Yet, we who know something about the Bible, also know that the God of this majestic universe also “sets up kings and takes down kings,” and we are admonished to support our leaders. But, in this case, it could also mean that God allowed this man to be put in this high office at this period in time, to shake America up from its deep sleep! Maybe, just maybe, God is giving puny man one more chance to repent and reject the ways of this world, embracing His law and His Ten Great Commandments which without question tell us how to live a righteous life.
And maybe, just maybe, the coming fall elections will show the direction this nation will now take in embracing a more Christian role of conduct, and throwing of the shackles of liberalism.
Now is the time to be true, patriotic, God-fearing Americans, with a desire for freedom—but God’s way. In truth, it can be no other way!
I truly believe that God is giving us one more chance to obey Him and His laws as never before! The key to the future is in our answer And our prayers.
