Conservative Commentary with a Liberal on Islam


Hello:

With all due respect to you, Joe, you are breathlessly ignorant of history as well as politics and sociology. You should look up the various portions of the Koran that promote jihad and the killing of what Mohammed and Muslims consider to be infidels. There is no way those passages can be misconstrued except by someone as uneducated (yes, I realize you have a college degree and yes, I still feel you suffer from a lack of education) as you.

Maybe you should consider moving to a Muslim country to enjoy their “freedoms”.

I just heard you side with Muslims and say, “…they cannot be discriminated against for their religion.”  How unfortunate that you don’t feel the same way about Christians. Once again, you need to pay attention to what is happening in our country today and study the issues in depth instead of spouting your offensive drivel. Your horn is not the only thing you blow.

I admire Patty Brooks for her ability to tolerate your opinions on a daily basis.  Fortunately, and to the credit of the management of KGMI, I do get to hear Patty Brooks, Rush Limbaugh and Lars Larsen and for that I extend my gratitude.

Sincerely,

Jerry Watson

    In the Bible, there are a number of passages that would be offensive to most modern Americans–passages such as it’s OK to stone a woman to death.

    Therefore, it doesn’t make much sense to condemn a whole religion when you find something in their “bible” that you don’t agree with.

    Christians choose to emphasize certain portions of the Bible, and Muslims choose to emphasize certain portions of the Koran. What matters is what people do. Most of the billion or so Muslims are decent people–that is what they do.

    I appreciate your perspective, D. But I can’t agree with it. Yes, there are some portions of scripture that may be offensive to some, but it is impossible and a great error to compare the Bible with the Koran because there are vast differences between them. For starters, Holy Scripture is the Word of God, our creator. The Koran makes no such claim. It is simply the writings of a so-called “prophet”, one called Mohammed. Further, I make no claim to condemn a “whole religion” but simply point out that those who adhere to the teachings of the Koran are proposing and promoting the wholesale slaughter of innocents. The passage you mention in Scripture lays down the penalty for a woman caught in adultery. To ignore that fact and cling to the idea of a “few muslim extremists” is to turn your face to the taking of innocent lives, some of whom may be your friends or family. How can you have seen the world-wide rejoicing in the muslim nations on 9/11 and proclaim that most muslims are “decent people”? If that’s your definition of “decent” I want no part of it.
    I think you need to further your studies of Islam and the Koran and compare what you learn to the history of conflict between Muslims and the rest of the world. It goes back to the very foundations of Mohammed’s teachings and it’s not just directed at Christians, although that is the base conflict, to be sure.
    Also, there is a deeper spiritual conflict at work here, which you will find out about if you read more of the Bible where it is outlined in prophecy.
    I do thank you for reading my work and hope you will continue to visit often. While I do not agree with your perspective, I value your input.
    Best,
    Jerry
