It looks like there may be a religious war brewing in the little town of Hood River, Oregon over a sign that some people think is “racist.” Personally, I think it’s interesting that the townspeople are screaming “racism” and not “Islamophobia.” The Missionary Baptist Church in Hood River has put up a message on the sign outside their church. “Wake up Christians, Allah is not our God, Mohammed is not greater than Jesus.”
A lot of people in Hood River are upset about that. The mayor, who was out for a bike ride, said, “I was really annoyed and sad. I am annoyed that in this political season there’s a solid case of ugly going on. I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘Oh it’s okay to be a big now.’”
The local paper has also had some activity in their letters to the editor column. One letter accuses the pastor of being a terrorist. Another said, “I literally had to stop and back up and make sure I saw what I saw, and I was profoundly offended and upset by it.”
Even local television station has gotten the act.
“I’m not politically correct. I’ve never been politically correct, but I think I’m biblically correct, and that’s what matters to me.” That was Pastor Michael Harrington of the Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church.
It’s interesting that Muslims can preach – in Arabic – Sharia law in their mosques and speak openly – again, in Arabic – of slaughtering Jews and other “infidels,” and nobody has a problem with that. George W. Bush did America and Americans no favor when he pandered to Islam after 9/11 with his “Religion of Peace” trope.
There’s nothing peaceful about Islam, and there’s nothing peaceful about Muslims in general. I find it interesting that every time there’s a terrorist attack by a Muslim the media and law enforcement talk to the terrorist’s neighbors and they’re portrayed to be “good, quiet, religious people.” The Obama administration repeatedly stopped federal law enforcement agencies from investigating mosques where the imams are known to be “radical Muslims.”
Hopefully, the Trump administration will drive a stake through the heart of that politically correct position, and we can put an end to the idea that Islam is a “Religion of Peace.” Muslims have been butchering their neighbors, or enslaving them, for 1,400 years. Their “religion” openly practices pedophilia, forces their women to live unimaginable lives, and encourages their practitioners to lie about their commitment to Islam and the idea that Islam should control the world.
I support Pastor Harrington in his effort to tell the truth openly. It’s long past time we stood up for Western values in the face of an invasion from the Middle East.
