Strained relations

Gazette staff March 14th, 2012

From fracking to faith, the war of words continues — because what’s the point of knowing you’re going to heaven if you don’t get to rub it in other people’s faces?

On March 7, the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, issued a media release calling on the Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond to drop “its anti- Muslim agenda” and cancel its scheduled guest speaker, Avi Lipkin.

CAIR said Lipkin is “an infamous Islamophobe who alleges among other things that Muslims worship the devil, and that all Muslims want to kill Christians and Jews” and that Lipkin believes President Barack Obama is “an undercover Saudi Arabian ‘Muslim plant’ in the White House.”

Shortly after the CAIR media release (and in obvious Christlike fashion), Fairview Baptist Church responded with a release of its own, stating that CAIR is a front for a Muslim group seeking to overthrow Uncle Sam.

Church pastor Paul Blair, who is running for state Senate against incumbent Clark Jolley, R-Edmond, implied that Muslims just need a Jesus vaccination against the Muhammad fever that’s clouded their thinking.

“Muslims are people who need Jesus Christ just like anybody else,” Blair said. “However, the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood and their front groups, including CAIR, is to establish a worldwide caliphate which would include the conquest of America and the subjugation of any other religion that does not confess that there is no god but Allah.”

This Amuses the Bear!

Noting smacks of love like a pissing contest.

I cannot speak for the testaments of Islam, but I do know that Jesus only issued two commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” And “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-40).

With this in mind, I can clearly see who ignored their faith to instigate another.  Not exactly “Loving your neighbor as yourself,” eh?

Perhaps I should be happy I am no longer aligned with a faith.  Because I can sit back and watch a bunch of morons argue over something so basic as the name they apply to their God. 

If ever there was a better reason to resist organized religion, it’s this pathetic childish destructive behavior.  We wouldn’t tolerate this crap in a school yard, but it’s perfectly acceptable in life?  What a wonderful message of love and tolerance we are passing to future generations.

Of all the things we do in this life to make ourselves feel “good.” Love is the only thing that does not harm us.
  If I have to explain that statement to anyone then they do not actually have a relationship with “God.”
