-UN Secretary General: Islamophobia Leads to Terrorism. Really?

by Dr. D ~ February 13th, 2017

2behead

According to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Islamophobia actually leads to terrorism. Here’s the story from The Blaze:

On a visit to Saudi Arabia Sunday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters that “Islamophobia” is fueling terrorism.

     “One of the things that fuel terrorism is the expression in some parts of the world of Islamophobic feelings and Islamophobic policies and Islamophobic hate speeches,” …

     “This is sometimes the best support that Daesh can have to make its own propaganda,”

Guterres added.

Response: Really? Which came first, terrorism or Islamophobia? Before Islamists started attacking America and Western nations no one was really paying any attention to Islam or making any disparaging remarks about radical Muslims. 

This statement is almost as crazy as the UN pronouncement a while back that historically Jerusalem belonged to Muslims and Jews had no ties at all with the Temple Mount.

-Peace? No! Canadian Imam Calls for Extermination of the “Accused Jews”

by Dr. D ~ February 10th, 2017

crescent-200147527

The purveyors of leftist PC propaganda continue to designate Islam as the  ‘Religion of Peace.’ However, the Quran and many of its major teachers demonstrate an entirely different message: death and extermination for Jews and unbelievers.

The Canadian authorities are going out of their way to fight “Islamophobia’ and provide an inclusive ‘safe speech’ zone in Canada for Muslims but at least one major Muslim Imam is calling for something entirely different for Jews- death and extermination. Here’s the story from Daily Wire:

O Allah, destroy the accursed Jews,”

Quebec Imam Sayed AlGhitawi declared in a chilling prayer asking Allah to bless Palestinian jihadists fighting the total annihilation of the Jewish people.

As the clerical authority of the Al Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal, Quebec, the Canadian Muslim echoed an earlier sermon he delivered in 2014.  …

So much for the Religion of Peace.

Replete with Quranic allusions, AlGhitawi justifies his call to arms with theological rigor. He even employs Allah’s alternative names to meticulously lay out a plan to kill the Jews “one by one.”

This sort of anti-Semitic garbage is quite common throughout the Muslim world. …But AlGhitawi is leading a Congregation in Quebec, Canada, a supposed beacon of multi-culturalism and tolerance.

<Read the whole article>

Response: While Muslim leaders call for the eradication of ‘Islamophobia’ and respect for their religion, many like this Imam are not so tolerant when it comes to other religions.

I really do believe that one can support their own beliefs without calling for the complete extermination of others. Muslims should be able to pray for their Palestinian brothers without calling for the complete annihilation of the Jewish people. This is not an example of peace and should be exposed.

This may not actually be violence itself, but this Imam is calling for it and encouraging his people to seek a ‘final solution’ by killing all the people of another faith. Leaders like Sayed AlGhitawi should be condemned by all. Including other Muslims if they really are what they say that they are- a peaceful religion.                  *Top

-Planned Parenthood Has Abortion ‘Sales’ Quotas and Rewards?

by Dr. D ~ February 9th, 2017

According to former workers and managers, Planned Parenthood has established ‘sales’ quotas for abortion and gives out rewards for exceeding baby killing goals. Here’s the story from WND:

     “Every center had a goal for how many abortions were done, and centers that didn’t do abortions like mine that were family planning clinics had a goal for the number of abortion referrals,”

said former Planned Parenthood center manager Sue Thayer. Thayer explains on the newest video:

“It was on this big grid, and if we hit our goal, our line was green. If we were 5 percent under it was yellow, if we were 10  percent under it was red. That’s when we needed to have a corrective action plan – why we didn’t hit the goal, what we’re going to do differently next time.”

“So we were really very goal-oriented. I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion, to have it at Planned Parenthood, because that counts toward our goal.”

<See the Video above and read the whole article>

Response: What a diabolical business. Meanwhile our taxes are going to support this baby slaughter and one major political party supports it all and says it is for the ‘common good’ of the nation. Business growth and ‘sales’ rewards all based upon how many babies they can kill for money and parts. A culture of death. It is time to bring it all into the light and take our government money out of the business of killing babies.                 *Top

-Poll: ‘Offensive’ Speech Should Not Be Protected?

by Dr. D ~ February 8th, 2017

Bill_of_Rights_Pg1of1_AC

According to the US Constitution, free speech is still protected in this country. Last week hundreds of students at Berkeley (U of CA) disagreed and rioted to block a scheduled visit by a conservative who they considered to be a purveyor of ‘offensive’ speech. Ironically, over 50 years ago students at the same institution initiated the ‘Free Speech Movement’ that pushed for the right of different views to be spoken on campus.

Now college students all over America are seeking to establish ‘protected zones’ on their campus where ‘offensive’ speech is forbidden. What is ‘offensive’ speech? That is the question, but considering the recent actions at Berkeley it seems to be conservative views that contradict prevailing progressive notions of the majority in institutions of’ so-called ‘higher learning.’

Where does this kind of thinking begin? A recent poll answers that question for us, the indoctrination obviously begins in high school. Over half of the high school students across America now believe that ‘offensive’ speech should not be legally protected. Here’s the story from  The Blaze:

A new study of American high schoolers shows that they are quite conflicted on the First Amendment.  …

The survey found that less than half — 45 percent — of high schoolers are OK with protecting the right to public speech if the content matter could be considered “offensive” to others and only 43 percent support those protections on social media. The numbers fall even further when it comes to bullying: Only 36 percent are OK with “bullying speech” in public and 30 percent on social media.

<Read the whole article>

Response: What really concerns me the most is the vagueness of exactly what could be considered ‘offensive’ and therefore should not be protected or allowed as public speech.

Some college and university administrators have decided that conservative Christianity is far too ‘offensive’ to be allowed on campus. In the process they have kicked Christian student organizations off campus where they can no longer dispense their controversial and ‘discriminatory’ views on campus.

In the UK, some Christians have been arrested for disseminating ‘hate speech.’ Exactly what was this offensive speech. Sometimes it has been street preachers merely reading those passages of the Bible that condemn homosexuality and on other occasions some got in trouble by debating Muslims and questioning Islam. Similar things have also happened in Canada.

The UK  and Canada do not have the protections in place like those in the US as supported by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Also Christian Speech should be doubly protected by the First Amendment as religious and free speech .

Nevertheless, our rights and the Constitution are only as good as they are understood and interpreted by our judges. Some judges have already ruled that Christian teaching is only protected within the four walls of an official and zoning approved place of worship.

With the current support for the elimination of ‘offensive’ speech in our educational institutions, will minority views including Christian and Biblical public speech continue to be protected as a new generation of students graduate, practice law, and eventually become judges? One really wonders.                 *Top

-European Parliament Considering Rights, Laws, and Liability For ‘Electronic Persons’ (Robots)?

by Dr. D ~ February 4th, 2017

                   (Image: Wikipedia)

A European Parliament committee has been studying the potential legal situations and problems surrounding the rapid development of robots and AI machines. A report has been submitted to the Parliament as a whole for action. One of the suggestions coming out of committee is to define advanced robots as “electronic persons” with certain legal rights.  Here’s the story from RT News:

A European Parliament committee has voted in favor of a draft report that proposes granting legal status to robots, categorizing them as “electronic persons”.

The draft report, approved by 17 votes to two and two abstentions by the European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs, proposes that

     “The most sophisticated autonomous robots could be established as having the status of electronic persons with specific rights and obligations, including that of making good any damage they may cause.” …

Authored by Luxembourg MEP Mady Delvaux, the report proposes definitions and outlines rules to govern how robots interact with humans

     “now that humankind stands on the threshold of an era” that it claims will see artificial intelligence (AI) “unleash a new industrial revolution.”

(Read the whole article) (Also read the report)

Response: Really- ‘Electronic persons’? I don’t like that designation at all since it seems to denote autonomy and independence, and ultimately could demand recognition and possible civil rights.

As the robotic industry is continuing to turn out more complex and sophisticated AI units, which actually simulate and replace humans, I do believe that restrictions and laws need to be put in place to protect people and assign liability. Some of these decisions probably do need to be made now.

Nevertheless, designating robots as ‘electronic persons’ is not one of them. Can you imagine a future where a robot actually sues a human master in court or a person is actually held for murder when one pulls the plug on an AI unit? Machines should never be allowed to be confused legally with real people. The end result could ultimately be the enslavement of humanity.                   *Top

-President Trump: Relying on God Now More Than Ever?

by Dr. D ~ January 31st, 2017

djt_home_inauguration

From our Apologetica page:

President Donald Trump has been in office for just over a week now and I have never seen the media react with such fervor and resolute unhinged opposition. Also I have never seen one in that office actually do as much in their first week.

Maybe others have, but the constant drumbeat of the media and the continual protests by leftist celebrities, it seems like it was the busiest first week ever for a president. One of the funniest pictures I have ever seen on Facebook characterizes that experience. It shows President Trump with the caption:

“Good Morning Snowflakes! What are we offended about today?”

Meanwhile in a recent interview, President Trump says that he is praying and relying on God more than ever since taking office. From Charisma:

"I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more," Trump told The Brody File. "There’s almost not a decision that you make when you’re sitting in this position that isn’t a really life-altering position. So God comes in even more so."

<Read the whole article>

Response: This is really good to hear. Since the election some who are closest to him say that Trump has been humbled by the whole thing and has really sought out God’s help. You can see that intent in his choice to actually have more prayers given at his inaugural than any other president before him.

Regardless of  whether you politically support our new President or not, all of us should be praying him that he will be guided and inspired to make the best possible decisions for our nation and world.                    *Top
