So They've Been Warned.

Do not criticize us or there will be violence.

or words to that effect.

We Christians are insulted and our Lord is insulted daily by the enemies of the truth, but we only react with violence when we are physically attacked. We attack the lies of others with what we know to be true.

The truth cannot be silenced. True Christianity will never be silenced because it is the ultimate and final spiritual truth. Anything "beyond it" is going downhill.

We do not fear or attempt to stifle our opponents but many of our opponents fear even our words and writings. Many wish to silence Christianity, but, as our Lord said, "If I command these to be silent the very stones would shout out." By its very nature truth cannot suppressed forever.

Like the other opponents of Christianity, Islam is afraid to be challenged by those who believe otherwise. These opponents of Islam aren't even Christians, yet Islam fears to let them speak.

These infidels will insult the Holy Quran? Can't He Who is God defend His own holy book, assuming it is Holy in first place? Let the Quran defend itself, not by the guns and flames of its believers, but against other ideas and see how it fares.

The Holy Bible will never win everyone over but it survives against foes far worse than Islam. The Bible is the most hated and suppressed book on earth, yet it keeps right on coming back because people, whether they like it or not, and most don't like it, see the truth in its words.

If Christians can tolerate anti-Christian films and literature, the Muslims can do the same. How much faith do they have in something that cannot withstand scrutiny?

If you wish to understand the true Middle Eastern (read: Islamic) mindset, the BEST book to read: "The Closed Circle" by David Pryce Jones.

It's ALL about what the Japanese call "face" and what Mexicans call "machismo." ALL about it. There IS NO logic to it.

Somehow I don't think it has anything to do with faith, Shoprat. I believe Islamofascists use Islam as an excuse for what they do, and they do what they do because they are bloodthirsty, consciousless barbarians. Yes, I know that some of the young ones are thoroughly brainwashed, but I also think they know way down deep where it counts that what they do is wrong, but it's more important to them to be macho, or whatever they call the equivalent of it. I don't see the logic of it though. I don't see anything macho about killing innocent people.

Well said, Shoprat.
People that know they are wrong tend to get defensive, even to the point of offensive behavior.
