If you hated Christianity and wished to purge it from the earth—if you were an enemy of Jesus Christ, and wanted to destroy His Church forever—would you be a secular humanist or a Muslim?
I would have picked the secular fat-head every time; but now it seems Islam is giving secularism quite a run for its money.
Secularism attacks the Church by seduction, and Islam by violence. I would say “radical Islam,” to distinguish the crazed killers from decent, ordinary, peaceful people who happen to be Muslims, but the Muslim mayor of London says I can’t do that anymore. Apparently he’d rather I lumped ‘em all together. I will continue to make the distinction; it would be shameful to obey such a ridiculous command.
Something very, very strange is going on with our secular big shots and their attitude toward Islam. After toiling for years to chop down the tree of Christianity—by abolishing school prayer and Christmas celebrations, establishing abortion as a social norm, and pushing, as if their very lives depended on it, homosexuality and transgenderism—these same warriors of the Antichrist now compete with one another to see who can be the most submissive to another religion: Islam.
In Germany, as Angela Merkel imports swarms of belligerent Muslims into her country and winks at the ensuing anarchy, a German television ad, paid for by (who else?) the United Nations and the German taxpayer, urges German women to wear the Muslim hijab. This bizarre message is couched in terms of “enjoying tolerance”—as opposed to, say, “abject surrender to the invaders.” Oh, well: words only mean what the big shots say they mean. You don’t need your dictionary anymore.
Germany has a little problem which its leaders don’t want to address: Muslim male “asylum seekers” raping German women. It seems there’s no asylum for the women, so the leaders recommend the next best thing—surrender to radical Islam, and maybe they won’t rape you. Maybe.
The socialist president of France, Francois Hollande, sees and raises Germany’s surrender bet. He has called upon his whole cotton-pickin’ country to “embrace Islam.” Muslims are shooting up the place like drunken cowboys, but never mind—it’s a religion of peace! As long as you do what they say, and they aren’t in a mood to kill you.
Secularism, the de facto religion of French socialists, can “easily coexist” with Islam, says Hollande: as long as the Muslims always get their way, at least. Just ignore those pesky shooting and bombing, and the odd Muslim trucker trying to run over as many Frenchies as he can before they shoot him. It’s bound to work out well, in the end.
By comparison, Britain’s little war against words seems like small potatoes. But give them time, and they’ll catch up.
For surrender’s in the air, all over Western Europe.
What is it with these secular honchos? Is it just that they hate their own people so much, they can’t think of any better way to hurt them? Or is surrender to Islam simply viewed as the ultimate weapon in their war on Christianity?
A German politician—Green Party, of course—says she just can’t wait for the day when Germans will be a minority… in Germany. Wow: maybe someday, if they play their cards right, there won’t be any Germans there at all.
It’s becoming impossible to decide which of these weird cults, the secularists or radical Islam, more deserves the name of Antichrist.
But I think they both are antichrist; and they’re doing everything they can to prove it.
