The following is a post I found on Facebook today. Check it out:
“CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
This is certainly ‘food-for-thought’.
This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. And send it on to everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
Religiously – no.. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam . (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)
Scripturally – no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically – no . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially – no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews .
Politically – no.. . . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.
Domestically – no. .. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically – no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot coexist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually – no.. . . Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ The Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent names.
Therefore, after much study and deliberation…. Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. – – – They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.
The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. ….
Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.”
I have to say THIS: For those of you who think it’s inevitable, go ahead and begin consigning me the pits of hell, but This HAS to be the most ignorant, uneducated, “off the cuff” bunch of hogwash I have ever sen in my life!!
I have countless friends who are followers of Islam and I own a copy of the Holy Quran and after a day of studying, consulting with those friends, I can acknowledge in no uncertain terms that the majority of the above scripture has been taken completely out of context!
Without regard for what one chooses to call Him, we serve the same God! The Muslims are a peaceful people, but have their bad apples just like Christians, Jews and other mainline religions. It all appears to boil down to a “Battle Of The Extremists” , and if the original author of this “writing” (whether it be the original poster or not) got his/her information from an uneducated “preacher boy” claiming to know “all things God”, someone might want to advise this person that they’re DEAD WRONG!
It is as though just because those responsible for the bombing of The World Trade Center (and other terrorist acts) happened to be followers of Islam, all Muslims must be bad. During the World War II era, Adolf Hitler was responsible for exterminating countless Jews. Does this mean it’s only right for all of us to be anti-German? Hardly! There are a number of Christians who have claimed responsibility for the bombing abortion clinics and, Mosques and Synagogues in America and other countries. Does this mean everyone should be anti-Christian? Nope.
What on earth are these people thinking? Where is the love? Apparently lost to extremism.
