Can Muslim lands learn
to tolerate Christianity?

Washington Post, by Michael Gerson

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/27/2013 5:52:14 PM

In some parts of the world, Herod’s massacre of the innocents is a living tradition. On Christmas Day in Iraq, 37 people were killed in bomb attacks in Christian districts of Baghdad. Radical Islamists mark — and stain — the season with brutality and intolerance. Across North Africa and the greater Middle East, anti-Christian pressure has grown during the past few decades, sometimes subtle, sometimes overt. This persecution has gained recent attention from the archbishop of Canterbury and the pope. “We won’t resign ourselves,” says Pope Francis, “to a Middle East without Christians.” The violence, of course, is not restricted

Only the Wapo would try to make Muslims out as some kind of reasonable people. The answer to their question is an emphatic "No!"

Of course Muslims can learn to tolerate Christianity. They have done it before, for thousands of years.

It´s quite simple, really: just pay the jizya(tax) and submit to dhimmi status, and nobody gets hurt.

This is a protocol Western nations might learn from and think about using with their growing Muslim populations.

More Muslims = more problems. This seems to be a law of some kind, like those of physics.

The short answer is NO. Christians are extinct in some countries and the list is growing. I read a quote from an imam this year: Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant. The Quran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Are these journ-O-lists so naive as to believe Islam is a religion? It is a political system hiding behind an ancient quest for supreme power at the edge of the sword. They´re a cult which still worships the Moon god.

Yes, they ´tolerate´ Christians... First they murder the men then take the women as ´wives´ and give them the option to convert to islam, or die.

Justices sound ready to reject
contraceptives mandate under Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by David G. Savage    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 3/25/2014 5:17:04 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court’s conservative justices sharply criticized part of President Obama’s healthcare law Tuesday, suggesting they will rule later this year that requiring Christian-owned corporations to offer their employees contraceptives coverage violates the freedom of religion. “Your reasoning would permit requiring profit-making corporations to pay for abortions,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy told U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who defended the contraceptives provision of the Affordable Care Act. The administration’s lawyer warned that the court would be adopting a “dangerous principle” if it gave employers a right to exempt themselves from federal laws based on their religious beliefs.

On Tuesday, Hot Air´s Ed Morrissey correctly pointed out Joy Reid´s implicit anti-Catholicism during the commentary segment that closed her MSNBC program on Monday. Reid zeroed in on the Supreme Court cases challenging the Obama administration´s abortifacient/contraceptive mandate under ObamaCare, and hyped how "the Court that will decide includes six Catholic justices – some of whom have not been shy about asserting their religion." The host also bemoaned how "all of this is taking place as the country becomes more secular – even as the fervently religious fight harder than ever to push creationism in taxpayer-funded schools and on science

Hobby Lobby case: Justices
skeptical of White House position
Politico, by Jennifer Haberkorn, Josh Gerstein    Original Article

The Supreme Court on Tuesday expressed skepticism of the legality of the Obama administration’s refusal to accommodate for-profit companies’ religious objections to the Obamacare requirement that most firms provide contraception in their employee health plans. A majority of the justices seemed particularly doubtful of one of the administration’s central arguments on the issue: the claim that for-profit companies have no religious rights under federal law. Several justices repeatedly questioned why the administration couldn’t give for-profit companies with religious objections the same kind of accommodation that has been offered to religious nonprofits. Those organizations have been offered the chance to opt-out

A private group of national security officials is preparing to release its own report on the Benghazi scandal, with a top official behind the report saying they have interviewed numerous eyewitnesses from before, during and after the Sept. 11, 2012 attack. The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, an organization composed of American retired military officers, intelligence officers, and national security experts is poised to release the product of one year of its own investigation into the scandal. The report will include new details from witness and whistleblower interviews relating to the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi and CIA

Hobby Lobby Contraceptive
Case Goes Before Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments Tuesday in the latest challenge to the Obama health care overhaul. This time the issue is whether for-profit corporations, citing religious objections, may refuse to provide some, or potentially all, contraceptive services in health plans offered to employees. It is a case that touches lots of hot-button issues. In enacting the ACA, Congress required large employers to provide basic preventive care for employees. That turned out to include all 20 contraceptive methods approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Under the law, religious nonprofits were exempted from this requirement, but for-profit corporations were not.

With President Barack Obama set to meet Pope Francis this week, Sen. Rand Paul said Tuesday the president has some explaining to do. “He ought to explain to the Pope why he is telling businesses in America they can’t remain true to their faith and stay in business,” the Kentucky Republican said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.” Paul brought up the lawsuit being heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday that challenges the part of the Affordable Care Act that mandates coverage for birth control. The suit is being brought by businesses that say the rule violates their religious

As Belgium´s capital and host to the EU and Nato, Brussels is used to deploying heavy security when big names pop by. But US President Barack Obama´s visit on Tuesday will strain the city like never before with €10m (£8.4m) of Belgian money being spent to cover his 24 hours in the country. The president will arrive on Tuesday night with a 900-strong entourage, including 45 vehicles and three cargo planes. Advance security teams orchestrating every last detail have combed Brussels already, checking the sewers and the major hospitals, while American military helicopters were last week given the green light

In respect of the Supreme Court’s hearing this week in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius we have been nursing the idea of a compromise. If it were up to us, we’d rule for Hobby Lobby and the Green Family and the Hahns and their kith, whose company, Conestoga Wood Specialties, is also before the court seeking protection from the birth control mandate of Obamacare. By our lights, they, and all similarly situated religious persons, deserve accommodation. Otherwise, who’s next? We’re an accommodating sort, however, and we’ve been wrestling with a compromise to salve the New York Times, which is in a

Despite his highly influential religious office, he makes time to sit with the people, comfort the sick, and help the poor. He often forgoes traditional fancy threads and maintains a quiet, humble disposition. He is, above all things, a pastoral man. If you think we´re talking about Pope Francis, think again. His support transcends ideology. Both conservatives and liberals seem to really love him. If you were to see Cardinal Seán Patrick O´Malley walking around in his characteristic brown smock, with a small ego but a big laugh, you might not even realize that he is the single most important

From humble beginnings in the 1970s in their Oklahoma City garage, David and Barbara Green launched what is now the sprawling nationwide commercial enterprise, Hobby Lobby. Their company – now owned entirely by five members of the Green family – is now at the epicenter of an important legal battle over the breathtaking reach of the Affordable Care Act. At issue is whether – due to the Greens´ deeply held religious objections – the Hobby Lobby owners have an enforceable freedom-of-conscience right not to provide several contraceptive methods (four out of the 20 ACA-required methods) to the crafts company´s employees.

Over 32 searches took place at all the firms and apartments connected to Stavytsky.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
