Obama uses Ramadan dinner to endorse NY mosque

Obama uses Ramadan dinner to endorse NY mosque

I keep hearing the word “tolerance” being used to justify “intolerance” of the Christian faith that I hold so dearly. I am not sure why it is so important for this new mosque to be built near ground zero but I certainly believe that it is not only a direct reflection of the insensitivity of those bent on doing it but it also shows me that there is no respect for those souls that lost their lives on Sept 11, 2001 when terrorists flew two jet liners into the twin towers.

I understand that not all Muslim people are extremists hell bent on destroying America. I do believe that there are Muslim extremists just like the idiots that flew the jetliners into those buildings that are living right here in America in terrorist cells waiting for their chance to wreak death and destruction against us infidels.

I wonder how many Christian churches and organizations are lobbying our government officials to ban religious activities of non Christian religions or to change the laws of our land to force their religious ideologies on our way of life? I would guess that there are probably none. I do know that there are organizations that are actively doing everything that they can to subvert what our Christian faith stands for. The Christian church and family unit has been under attack for many years now and the sad fact of the matter is that the church is so apathetic and sleepy that before you know it the intolerance of the Christian faith will be the very thing that will bring more and more restrictions in practicing our faith.

If you do not believe that then how about the hate crimes law that was enacted not too long ago that makes it illegal for pastors to speak out against homosexuality. If a pastor makes negative or derogatory remarks about homosexuality or makes the mistake of saying that the bible says that homosexuality is a sin then he is guilty of hate crimes and can be arrested and put into jail. That is a clear example of how intolerant our nation is of our Christian clergy to be able to speak the truth of Gods word from the pulpits of their churches. Another example of intolerance of Christian values is the battle that rages in America to allow same sex marriage. A group of people are fighting to have the same rights and privileges as those who are a man and woman and married. The institution of marriage is under attack and those of us that believe and honor the fact that marriage is between a woman and a man are labeled as being intolerant. The church needs to stand up and be heard and quit cowering in fear. Why is the church afraid to stand up and let the world know what the word of God says and that they stand behind it with everything they have?

Our world and the beliefs we hold so dearly as Christians is under attack and if we are not careful we will lose our freedom of religion in the name of intolerance. We must be willing to do whatever it takes to protect those freedoms. We must be just as intense in the activities of defending our faith as those people and organizations that are bent on destroying them.
Saying that we are Christians and going to church two times per week and living in our little comfortable comfort zones is not going to get the job done people. The world is happening outside of the four walls of the church and our job is to take the gospel of Christ to the world we live in. Instead of sticking our heads in the sand and living in denial we should educate ourselves on what is happening all around us and get involved in whatever way that we can do be the church of God that God intended for us to be.
