A very timely message from Eric Allen Bell.
Mr. Bell is spot on here and nuts like pat Robertson do the Counter jihad movement absolutely no favors. Religious extremists from any religion, extremists from any political ideology cult do more harm than good.
I will not get into my personal spirituality here except for this; my daily life and walk are my witness to others. I do not need to rant about my religion and spirituality to others..
I am and always will be 100% counter jihad, against Islam and sharia law. The image is one I added, not from EAB. PatriotUSA
The extreme Religious Right has hijacked the Counter Jihad
From Eric Allen Bell:
JIHAD fails when it becomes a religious crusade. As long as we remain
unwilling or unable, to reel in the extremes among our own ranks, they
will continue to speak for us and we will continue to be perceived as a
cartoonish cliche. By no means am I saying that having religious people
in the movement is bad. To the contrary, they are critical. But when the
zealots become the loudest voice, when Counter Jihad
stops being about human rights and liberty, and starts to be a contest
of religions, a "fulfillment of prophecy" or a way to "share Christ" we
will fail. Mark my words. We are failing largely because of this now. If
only Eric Stackleback, an otherwise great reporter on terrorism, did
not work for that religious bigot Pat Robertson. If only Glenn Beck
would not mix his brilliant analysis of the Arab Spring in with end
times lunacy. If only it were possible for people to go to ACT meetings
and not be told they are idiots for being Liberal or going to hell for
not accepting Jesus. But this is not the case. The extreme Religious
Right has hijacked Counter Jihad and they are making fools of us and
undermining our message - the message that Islam is the greatest threat
to human rights, liberty and national security today and that something
must be done about it. Islam is the enemy, not "Libtards" not "Satan".
Ending Sharia in America is a measurable first step, not "restoring
America for Christ". We must have the clarity and courage to tell the
religious nuts that we will not be bullied by their numbers and their
resources. This means that those of you reading this, who are sane and
oppose Islam, need to make your voice louder.
