We tolerate Islam but they don’t tolerate Christianity!
Investor’s Business Daily had a great editorial yesterday in response to Obama’s lecture at the UN about how we must demonstrate tolerance of all religious faiths. In America we try to do that, but the glaring lack of religious tolerance in Muslim countries worldwide is stunning.
Here is some of what IBD had to say:
Referring to the Muhammad video during his U.N. speech this week, Obama lectured Americans about “intolerance” toward Islam.
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” he said. “It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: ‘Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.'”
He actually believes Muslims have heeded those words.
“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance,” he intoned during his 2009 Cairo speech. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
Obama must have learned his history at that Jakarta madrassa he attended.
We won’t litigate the ugly past of Islam here. We don’t have to: A 2010 congressional study found that 20 of the 23 nations that ban Christian religious workers are — surprise — Muslim nations.
No religious visas allowed for Christians entering most Muslim countries!
“Since Islam prohibits proselytism by other religions, foreign religious workers will in effect be denied entry to conduct religious work.”
However, the US grants Religious Visas to Muslims and their family members and we allow Saudi Arabia to build mosques in America! So, let’s be clear, who is tolerant and who isn’t?
Yet the U.S. State Department continues to grant R-1 religious visas for Islamic clerics from Muslim nations — including jihadist hotbeds Egypt and Saudi — even though we’ve had to arrest a number of these foreign imams for inciting anti-American violence.
Muslim countries discriminate against us based on religion, but we don’t discriminate against them — even when it’s totally justified.
There is more, here.
