NOTE FROM JUNDO: I AM LEAVING UP THE ARTICLE THAT AIKOKU QUOTES (THANK YOU FOR THAT, AIKOKU) JUST SO THAT PEOPLE CAN SEE THE CONTENT, WHICH I CONSIDER HATEFUL AND BIGOTED. I DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO MISUNDERSTAND WHY IT IS HERE.
" religions can be made into a very dangerous weapon"
paraphrased naturally... and I apologize Jundo roshi if I took it out of context....
but I wanted to share something I just found that I feel really demonstrates that saying
Let me stress that I do NOT believe this way, nore are these my words
.. allow me to set this up.
I am an American Mangaka " manga ( japanese comicbook) artist" and I sell hand made merchandise, like necklaces, and art prints on a site known as ETSY..a one shop stop for people looking for hand made art " think of it like a giant craft fair online 24/7...alot of lovely work.."
well, in their forums its no shock that the political situations in the U.S is a major deal...one thread that was set up for the republican members on etsy to join together and talk had a rather brutal twist when a certain member made a one time appearance and left something...
" Times are scarry. We really need to pay attention this election year.
CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
This is very interesting and we all need to read it
from start to Finish and send it on to anyone who will read
it. 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? This question was forwarded to a friend
who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is
Theologically - no . . . Because his allegiance is
to Allah, The moon God of Arabia
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 co-exist. 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 ..
And Barack Hussein Obama, a Muslim, wants to be our
President? You have GOT to be kidding! Wake up America !
Obama even says if he wins the election, he will be
sworn in on the Quran---not a Bible!
Footnote: He was sworn in on the Quran for his
current office and he refuses to pledge allegiance to the
United States or put his hand over his heart when the National
Anthem is played! The Muslims have said they will
destroy us from within. Hello! Having a Muslim president
would seem to fit the bill! Will you trust this man with
our national secrets?
SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
THE MARINES WANT THIS TO ROLL ALL OVER THE U.S."
Without even hinting at my political standings.. and I beg for those here to keep this as nuteral as one can...I do wish to read this and wonder.. who is teaching things in such a way to inspire so much hate and distrust? I know every faith/non faith in the world has had it's zealots...but this just screams " weapon" to me.
