Controversy has stuck again, in the form of a billboard in Indianapolis. It’s got local Muslim groups on fire about the contents on it, which is the mocking of “prophet” Mohammed as “The Perfect Man”. The billboard gives 6 bullet points about Mohammed that describe who is was.
These points include: “Married a 6-year-old”, “Slave owner & dealer”, “Rapist”, “Beheaded 600 Jews in one day”, “13 wives, 11 at one time” and “Tortured & Killed Unbelievers” ….so basically just the truth.
Well they don’t like the truth.
“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America told Fox 59.
“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” Kahtri added.
Really? Disappointed that America still has free speech? I don’t think the word “disappointed” begins to describe how most of us feel when we see the news that someone’s throat has been slashed, a child’s genitals were mutilated, a pressure cooker bomb was detonated during a mass crowd…..need I go on? I’m disappointed that we’re not allowed to call evil for what it is and wipe it off the face of the earth once it has been identified. This is just ridiculous.
Anyway, so now the Muslim Alliance of Indiana is starting to gather and raise money that they plan to use in creating their own billboard to post up close by to this one, and get this… ‘spread a message of peace and kindness’.
So they are all upset, to have their prophet put on blast like that. But here’s the question I have for them then.
Which of the six statements wasn’t true?
The man interviewed in this video is calling it bigotry. Is bigotry telling the truth? He is basically indicating that even he thinks these truths are unpalatable. Well…I got news for him, THEY ARE!
Also, that sign does not say one word about Islam or Muslims.
Bigotry is an unjustified fear of something. The billboard gives plenty of reasons why someone should be afraid of Islam. Sharia law isn’t tolerant of anything. Sharia Law leaves no room for freedom of speech because it requires requires the death penalty for anyone who blasphemes Mohammed. It would be nice if people would stop putting up all these smokescreens, and fake fronts to hide the truth. It makes any sort of progress impossible when people want to live in their lies, and hide behind deceit. A circle of chaos and upset that goes on and on without an end.
Bottom line here though? It doesn’t say anything about Islam or Mohammed on the sign, yet muslims knew EXACTLY who was being described. Kind of telling in itself. I get it, not all Muslims are terrorist, OF COURSE. but I’m not saying Muslims are the enemy here. The enemy is the Islamic State. People keep getting it twisted. Until Muslims start helping to identify those that practice their religion as part of the Islamic State…what are we to do? Walk around living a lie and just hoping that reaching out and touching the person next to us to say ‘I love you’ will work? No.
Love does heal hate. It does not however, heal wickedness. There is nothing wrong with wanting to take measurements to provide safety for your people, like Trump’s travel ban wants to do. If we are safe and secure, we will actually have more strength to help refugees.
You cannot not be of help to any other, until you help yourself. That’s just how it works.
