-Rep. Lee: A Threat That Christian ‘Militants’ Might Bring Down The Country

by Dr. D ~ June 18th, 2011

During a congressional hearing on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said that Christian ‘militants’ in America also needed to be investigated because they too might try to “bring down the country.”

 

Lee cited the proverbial case of the man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this was an attempt by Christians to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to get an abortion. Then she went on to intimate that Christians opposing the current abortion laws were tantamount to trying to overturn the government.

Response: Shame on Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee for her ridiculous unfounded accusations. This is an irresponsible and ignorant presentation of equivalence. Rep. Lee can’t produce even one valid example of  ‘Christian militants’ who are actually trying to bring down America.

The abortion clinic bomber cited is not part of any Christian group and may even be an agnostic. Plus Timothy McVeigh who is often mentioned as a ‘Christian’ was born Catholic but did not participate in any church as an adult.

There are 10’s of millions of Christians that are opposed to the current abortion laws in this country but to paint them as radicals who want to bring down the government is not only a reach but simply not true on any level. In fact most are probably more supportive of the US Constitution than Rep. Lee.

I really don’t know even one Christian group that openly supports over throwing the US government and replacing it with some kind of theocracy. There may some supposed Christians somewhere that are opposed to the US government but it isn’t part of their religion per se.

Meanwhile, it really is a regular part of Muslim teaching that sharia law is to be established world wide and all governments of the world are to be replaced with Islamic rule.

Also, there are radical Muslims in this country that are very open about seeking to bring sharia law to America as a replacement for our current laws and Constitution. Plus there are Muslim organizations around the world providing funding toward that goal.            *Top
