Islam on Capitol Hill

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Next Friday, September 25, will be a day of celebration of Islam at the Capitol.

The organizers say they intend to, "Manifest Islam's majestic spiritual principles as revealed by Allah to our beloved prophet Muhammad of Arabia."

I have to wonder if the President will make some appearance or statement, remembering that he essentially ignored the Christian prayer event in May.

The following agenda is taken from their website: I strongly encourage you to take a moment and see the site.

The Athan will be chanted on Capitol Hill, echoing off of the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and other great edifices that surround Capitol Hill

Thousands of Muslims from all races, creeds, colors and ethnicities will gather for the sole purpose of prayer

Bonds of friendship will be formed between those in attendance, both Muslims and Non-Muslims

Muslim youth will experience tours of the Library of Congress and the Supreme Court

The peace, beauty and solidarity of Islam will shine through America's

  1. Islam is not just a religion. It also includes economic laws, social laws, civil laws; indeed it is a complete governmental system.

    Islam also denies liberty to non-Islamic people in Islamic nations. Non-Islamic people must pay a special tax. No Islamic person shall ever be under the authority of non-Islamic people.

    Many believe (and the position is supported by many passages from the Koran,although interpretations vary) that Islamic people are free to execute non-Islamic people if they insulted Islam.

    Our constitution states "To preserve the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." as one of the goals of our government.

    In view of these facts, Islam should be prohibited as a subversive political force at odds with the principles of liberty and freedom and hostile to our constitution.

    Islam should be redefined as a political faction, not a religion.

  2. Freedom of worship is protected in this nation until it violates the constitutional rights of others. They may find themselves on very thin ice one day, some of them falling through.

    The only salvation they will find
    will be in Jesus one day, if they will find it at all.

    May God so overshadow their event by his spirit, that he reveals to them the way of salvation and the importance of the cross of Jesus.
    It's happened before that God was found of them that sought him not.

  3. Oh! That's just lovely! What's next: Our great president telling us that he's so happy to be a muslim, instead of the christian he claims to be. Its amazing how bold he is about certain truths, the things he actually cares about. How come us christians aren't allowed to have the Ten Commanments displayed in public places or a cross on a veterans memmorial??? Where's the division between "church and state" ?? Where's the ACLU on this one?

  4. "Freedom of worship is protected in this nation until it violates the constitutional rights of others"

    Do you mean like taking civil rights away from gays?

    So if gay marriage ever gets upheld by the supreme court as a constitutionally protected right, you believe your freedom of worship should go away? Interesting viewpoint!

  5. 12:17 AM,

    Perhaps you were too busy feeling sorry for your self or forming your sarcastic post to notice, but President Obama, has not shown any intention of participating in this event any more than he did in the national day of prayer (an event that has been hijacked by conservative political activists, who worked against Obama's election). Obama did make a proclamation on the NDP, which claims to be a Judeo-Christian event, rather than ignore it as Gary claims, but then again Gary also seems to be confused about the nature of the event.

    Nothing being done at this event is being sponsored by the state, in fact I don't believe they are even being given access to congressional meeting rooms as the right-wing political NDP event was. But never mind with the facts, you're too busy enjoying your false sense of persecution.

  6. Freedom of worship should be here to stay. When lawmakers make bad laws they should go away.

    When a nation is full of people who don't know good from bad, that nation is in danger of being destroyed by it's own devices, even by the judgment of God.

  7. I found a short word of encouragement on Kim Clement's site, dated 9/4/09 about America,
    a short letter from San Jose, CA.
    This is not the letter, but it caused me to rejoice.

    God has begun a great change in America. It seemed to happen so quickly. Truly God is watching over us and giving his Church the victory in Jesus. He's telling us that there is nothing too big for him, that Jesus being with us means that God is with us also. No plans against him will prosper but come to their end. Therefore his Church will prosper. The things that we thought were big are beginning to fall before us.
    The weapons of the enemy will jam.
    They will fall from their hands as broken toys because of Jesus.

  8. Notice: We the people are not trading the constitution for the Koran, sorry but no thanks... Do islamic countries show the same respect towards the rights of christians to worship publicly, as we do here in the United States of America? The God of Abraham will be watching. We'll see what he thinks about this coming day in our nations history, weather wise.
    Peace to all who desire it!

  9. Notice: We the people are also not trading the Constitution for the Bible, sorry but no thanks. We like our secular democratic republic, just the way the founding fathers set it up.

  10. 11:91 gays are single people, with the same rights as the rest of us! They can choose to have their lifestyle, as they always have been allowed to do, but not allowed to change traditional marriage of one man/one women, as God has set up for us to have!

  11. 11:19 - Gays enjoy the same civil rights as all single people. The difference is most of them aren't shoving their perverted sex life into the faces of the rest of us.

    This fact, therefore, makes it neither civil, nor right for this behavior to be elevated and publicly recognized - much less celebrated.

    Be happy that most civil people have figured out that you are sick and should not be beat up but loved and helped. As for me, I pity you and the children you will never have.

  12. Great post, boy you told me. Except that I'm hetero, been happily married for almost 25 years and have two daughters in high school (we waited until we were financially secure and my wife could stay home with the kids - family values, you know).

    You are the one who deserves pity because you apparently cannot comprehend defending and supporting those who are different from you.

  13. It seems to me that America voted in a man for president who was assumed to be a Christian because of his attendance in a certain church which was made known by the media. Then we find him going to another country telling Muslims
    about how in America that many Americans worship God in ways other than Christians do, and that America is open to all kinds of religions, thus seeming to be recruiting or at least encouraging
    Muslims to continue in their faith, or even inviting them to come to America.

    I had hoped for a Christian president who would speak openly and boldly about Christ and the message of the cross before such a group.

    It seems to me that a president may boldy encourage the practice of any faith in America, whatever his preferece is, and at the same time make known that in this nation different religious practices are proteced along with the free exercise thereof as long as such practice doesn't violate our laws or the constitutional rights of others.

    May America always be known as the land of the free and the home of the brave, because without freedom and courage, no nation will be able to serve God in Christ Jesus, through whom comes our blessings.

    As with men, and so with a nation,
    it's problems arise because of the failure to live by the message of the cross of Christ. Even so, problems come, but they do not overtake a nation if they truly have hope in God by the Lord Jesus, who is the life of them that will live for eternity in that place Jesus has prepared for those that do love God, by him.
