We hear today from our President (God I hate calling him that), a statement of recognition of Ramadan. An Islamic holiday/religious observance.
In his statement he says this:
”Even as Ramadan holds profound meaning for the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims, it is also a reminder to people of all faiths of our common humanity and the commitment to justice, equality, and compassion shared by all great faiths.”
A religion that says to kill all non muslims doesn’t sound like a religion that promotes compassion.
Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
How is it that a religious observance of the most hateful religion in the world would remind anyone of those things?
Furthermore, I don’t think that the United States should be recognizing any religious holiday of Islam, given what all we truth loving people know Islam to be. I don’t think it’s appropriate to suggest anyone recognize an observance that’s purpose is to make Muslims be more extreme.
What do I mean by that? Well according to Wikipedia Ramadan is a time when Muslims are expected to put more effort into following the teachings of Islam.
