In lots of Muslim countries you can’t live as a non-Muslim. In many, if you preach your faith to others you are killed or jailed. If you’re a Muslim and you convert, you are killed or jailed.
In many of these Muslim countries, there is no separation of mosque and state. Even in the new constitution of Iraq, it says right there in black and white that Iraq is a Muslim country and they openly give the non-Muslims a hard time. Over the past 100 years Muslims have done what many Christian countries did over the past 100 years. They pushed the others out or killed them.
We still let Turkey cover up what it did to the Armenians. They cover it up so we don’t hunt down their genocidal criminals. We help the Muslims cover up their genocide.
In Muslim countries, the call for prayer is sung loudly several times daily, even where non-Muslims live. Much as in Christian countries, the church bells ring several times daily, even where non-Christians live. This was accepted, tolerated, whatever, by everyone.
However, there are places in Europe where the Christians are buckling under pressure from the Muslims. When Muslims say they don’t want Christians spreading their message in Muslim areas, it appears the courts are backing them up.
Imagine in the United States if in Jewish areas the courts denied churches the right to ring their bells, and if in Jewish areas, like say, Manhattan, the courts denied those crazy Jesus people the right to should their message on the street corners, and imagine if in Skokie, Illinois, the courts denied the KKK from marching through neighborhoods where the neighbors were Holocaust survivors.
I’m enjoying imagining all this. I figure, what’s fair is fair…
And yet, others say:
FAITH UNDER FIRE
