The First Amendment And Islam

efforts of mortal men influenced by the evil of Satan. Sharia wraps its
tentacles around every fiber of its followers being, until the life’s choices

THE BOTTOM LINE
Do we really have total and absolute freedom of religion in America without any restrictions or regulations? And Is Islam really a religion that our’ Constitutional Founders defined as a religion protected by the First Amendment?
Before I begin to answer those and other questions let us discuss the content of the First Amendment regarding the so-called “Freedom of Religion”.
The First Amendment has two provisions concerning religion: the Establishment Clause, and the Free Exercise Clause. The Establishment clause prohibits the government from "establishing" a religion. The precise definition of "establishment" in this case is unclear. Some say, it meant prohibiting state-sponsored churches, even though historically the U.S. government did, in a small degree, sponsor churches. Sunday church was even held in the Capital building. So it would appear that it may be an influence issue of degree, or to what extent of involvement, such as in the case of the Church of England where there is near full involvement.
Today, what constitutes an "establishment of religion" is often governed under the three-part test set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court in Lemon v. Kurtzman, 403 U.S. 602 (1971). Under the "Lemon" test, the government can assist religion only if:
(1) The primary purpose of the assistance is secular
(2) The assistance must neither promote nor inhibit religion
(3) There is no excessive entanglement between church and state
NOTE: The actual literal separation of church and state is never mentioned in the constitution.
The Free Exercise Clause protects citizens' right to practice their religion as they please, so long as the practice does not run afoul of public morals, laws or a compelling governmental interest. Which by its fundamental beliefs as you will see later-on in the discussion, fundamentally disqualifies Islam from so-called First Amendment protection.
And then the question: what constitutes or defines ‘a religion’ protected under constitutional law.
This raises the difficult question of what the concept of "religious liberty" entails. Although the framers probably conceived of religion in a theistic and more specifically a monotheistic manner, it is not clear, that they intended the religion clauses to apply only’ to theistic religions. Moreover, the broad purpose of the religion clauses was not merely to assure the liberty of particular religious denominations, but rather to protect the religious impulses of man from government interference. This purpose is recognized in several Supreme Court opinions.
For example, Justice Brennan has observed:
“The constitutional mandate expresses a deliberate and considered judgment that [religious] matters are to be left to the conscience of the citizen and declares as a basic postulate of the relation between the citizen and his government that "the rights of conscience are, in their nature, of peculiar delicacy, and will little bear the gentlest touch of governmental hand ....”
Once we recognize that the concept of religious liberty entails protecting matters of conscience from government interference, it becomes clear that a constitutional definition of religion cannot be limited to the theistic religions recognized by the Framers, or even to a broader class of traditional religions. Such a rigid definition of religion would be inconsistent with the very concept of religious liberty.' Accordingly, any proposed constitutional definition should be broad and flexible enough to include changing concepts of religion, thereby protecting new and so-called unorthodox religious beliefs.
But more importantly, is’ there a test for what a religion is’, or is not, such as Nazism, Communism or Islamism?
Our Constitution allows for freedom of religion. Along with that, comes all the modern legal perks including tax exemption and other special privileges. It can be proven historically that Communism and Nazism have never been defined as a religion, even though both have their self-appointed gods. But does Islam qualify as a religion according to our laws. If as Nazism and Communism, Islam is classified as a political ideology and a cult, instead of a religion it will lose its religious designation. And more importantly it’s very wanted but misguided protection under the guise of our First Amendment that it is using against us along with its tax exempt status, and thus its political foothold and ideological influence in America.
With that said, what I will try to do here is present a feasible argument that the special rights and privileges afforded Islam were given in error, ignorance and deception. Moreover, by its own teachings is at the very least committing fraud, which according to federal law is: (A false representation of a matter of fact, causing one to believe, whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of what should have been disclosed, that deceives and is intended to deceive another so that the individual will act upon it to her or his legal injury.) Notwithstanding all of Islam’s precepts, it violates our basic laws of morality and freedom. Islam and America are fundamentally incompatible.
Hopefully America will wake up from its willful slumber and this tragic mistake will be eventually reversed before it is too late, thus helping to save our Judeo-Christian nation from the islamization being forced on us by the Obama and/or subsequent potentially politically correct robotically programed deceived administrations.
First, it must be stated how religion, in a theological sense, is generally defined in America. Simply put, it is a belief in, and reverence for, a singular, supernatural power (or being) who is both creator and ruler of the universe and one who controls man’s destiny, what we commonly refer to as God. (Deuteronomy 6:4: “...Hear ‘O’ Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one.” Religion in America is based upon a set of beliefs, values, morals, and practices following the teachings of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Abrahamic God of the Jews; In other words a living, loving God 1 John chapter 4 verse 8 “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” As God’s word in The Holy Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” America was founded upon the holiness and supremacy of this God, thus at its inception America became a Judeo-Christian society; As in “One nation under God.” Because of these very beliefs, values, morals, and principles. Does that mean that unless one is a Christian ones beliefs are not protected under the First Amendment? Absolutely not, but there are other criteria as we will discuss.
Legal definitions of religion usually appear in the complicated contexts of either protecting freedom of religion, or prohibiting discrimination or persecution of religion. Legal definitions do not describe the nature of religion, they establish rules for regulating social and legal relations among people who themselves may have sharply different attitudes about what religion is, and what parts of it are entitled to protection. Legal definitions, therefore, may contain serious inefficiencies when they include particular social cultural attitudes towards ‘accepted’ religions, or when they fail to account for social and cultural attitudes against ‘non-accepted’ religions.
However, The Supreme Court has interpreted religion to mean a sincere and meaningful belief that occupies in the life of its possessor a place parallel to the place held by God in the lives of other persons. The religion or religious concept need not include a belief in the existence of God or a supreme being to be within the scope of the First Amendment. The Supreme Court has deliberately avoided establishing an exact definition of religion because freedom of religion is a guarantee that was written in such a broad manner as to ensure adaptability. As a result, religion is not limited to traditional denominations, and this is the category where Islam falls, for it is anything but traditional.
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Although the First Amendment only refers to Congress not to individuals or groups, The U.S. Supreme Court has held, by opinion, that the Fourteenth Amendment (this amendment was specifically introduced to secure the rights of former slaves but has since been questionably expanded to include other groups such as senior citizens, women, children, and people with disabilities) has come to be known as the center of Equality in America. It makes the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses also binding on states (Cantwell v. Connecticut, 310 U.S. 296, 60 S. Ct. 900, 84 L. Ed. 1213 , and Everson v. Board of Education, 330 U.S. 1, 67 S. Ct. 504, 91 L. Ed. 711 , respectively). This is extremely important legally, because each state issues tax exemptions as well.
However, and here is where the problem lies, some define religion as an individual or group conviction, a belief tied in with societal and cultural traditions, along with man’s impact on them. But this definition of religion is wrong, for this in actuality, is the legal definition of a ‘CULT.’ A cult’s followers and members swear an allegiance to and/or worship in total submission to an unknown deity, or’ to a made-up godlike figure invented to further someone’s personal political ambitions reminiscent of Nazism. (as some believe also was the case with Mohammad), and add the fact that the word ‘cult’ often suggests extreme beliefs, bizarre and evil behavior, and you have just described Islam to a tee. It’s extremely important to note that one of the main things separating a true religion from a cult is that no true religion instructs its followers to kill innocent people in God's name, but many a cult instructs its followers to kill in the name of their leader, again such is the case with Nazism and Islam. So Islam could and should at the very least and if for no other reason, be described as a “Cult,” even though in my opinion it is far more than that.
The following is a comparison of the Cult and/or Political Islamic Ideology of Arabia, and the Christian Religion of America.
(Many of the following explanations are from Robert Spencer’s book, “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the crusades.)
When a Muslim declares that Islam is a religion of peace, he is either ignorant of the Qur’an, or’, is deceitfully (taqiyyah) thinking of this so-called non-existent ‘peace’ as it applies only to those within the Muslim community.
According to the Quran Surah 48:29: "Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers." Surah 9:5: "Kill the Mushrikun [unbelievers] wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush..." Also see Surah 9:29: "Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture [People of the book or Christians & Jews] as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute [Jizya] readily, being brought low."
NOTE: There is not a single verse in the Old or New Testaments that contain a command to kill just because one is an unbeliever.
It must also be noted that any recognized religion in America does not suppress or stop free speech and dissent, but cults and political ideology’s such as Nazism, Communism and Islamism do. If Islam really holds the ‘Ultimate Truth’ (Quran 4:82: “Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.” If Islam is the “final revelation from God” as the Quran claims then Islam should not fear any challenge, questioning, or free speech. Islam’s leaders should be able to defend Islam with only words, because its appeal should be evident to everyone.
Therefore, people should want to come to Islam willingly and without fear of violence. If some choose to leave this so-called faith, then they should be allowed to leave. But instead they are persecuted or worse…..executed. The Hadith Al Buhkari vol. 9:57: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.” This command from the Hadith is practiced in all Islamic countries today, and just reeks of being a Cult/Political Ideology reminiscent of Nazism and certainly NOT a religion protected under the First Amendment.
Islam’s god Allah is actually Satan the god of evil.
It must always be remembered that Islam came into existence thousands of years after the birth of Judaism, and approximately 600 hundred years after the birth of Christianity. Was Islam the answer to those who doubted the living loving God, as set down in the Old and New Testaments? Was Islam the antidote to the harsh instructions and rules that both Judaism and Christianity demanded of its followers? Or was Islam introduced by the angelic being Satan disguised as the angel Gabriel to the handpicked mad rantings of a Bedouin sheepherder called Mahammad who had visions of grandeur and immortality and thus making Islam a “Satanic Political Ideological Cult” and NOT a religion at all? I believe it is the later, and I will explain why.
Islam literally means ‘submission and subjugation’. And herein lays a very crucial deviation from what religion is supposed to commutate. True religion according to what the Constitutional architects defined a religion, worships a living, loving God and allows for the free will of man, (Deuteronomy 30:19: ”I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Joshua 24:15: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Proverbs 3:3: “Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.” However, Islam by its very name does.
‘Tawhid”, the single oneness concept of the monotheism of Allah, is an essential belief for all Muslims. Without the free will to either follow Tawhid or leave the so-called religion of Islam, Islam becomes nothing more than a Nazistic political cult where one must follow blindly or pay severe consequences. (Qur'an 8:12: “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and his Apostle.”
Remember, anyone can join Islam, but the only way one can ever leave Islam, is by death, NOT by one’s free will to do so. Sura 5:33 …”commands mutilation and crucifixion for striving against Allah and Muhammad.”
Muslims erroneously claim their so-called religion to be the oldest and the only truth, and that all human beings are born Muslim, but they practice religion according to their upbringing. (Sahih Muslim, Book 033, Number 6426: “Mohammad said: No baby is born but upon Fitrah [human nature] as a Muslim. It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a Polytheist." Muslims consider Christians to be polytheists because of the belief in the complexity of the Trinity, the one triune God.
Because Islam means complete submission to the one and only ‘true god’ Allah/Satan, Muslims believe that anyone who is truly submitting himself to god (Allah), according to what has been revealed from god (Allah) and not simply according to his own whims, is a Muslim. Muslims believe that Islam is the religion of all Prophets, Adam to Muhammad the last and final prophet, and that children are not born out of any sin, original, inherited or derived, so therefore, they are born of the religion of their nature…Islam. Muslims claim all people eventually must revert back to Islam and, therefore, are not technically converted to it, so if one does not follow Islam and abide by its rules during their lifetime, then they must be killed. A simple premise yes, but one upon which Muslims use to justify jihad upon nonbelievers (Qur'an 8:39: “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.” This lends more credence to the fact that Islam is a cult NOT a religion of peace, as all religions are supposed to be.
The Qur’an asserts that Allah the god of Islam, is the God of Christians and Jews. (Sura 29:46: “Do not argue with the people of the scripture (Jews, Christians, & Muslims) except in the nicest possible manner—unless they transgress— and say, we believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you, and our god and your god is one and the same; To Him we are submitters.") Nothing could be farther from the truth. About 578 years before Islam began in 610 AD, Christians were warned against Islam by both Jesus and the Apostle Paul. In Matthew 16:11, 12 Jesus warned about many false prophets who would follow Him. “How is it that ye do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?”
Paul also warned of this when he wrote in Galatians 1:8: “But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should preach a Gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be condemned to hell!” (NET)
Muslims are lied to
Muslims claim, without providing any proof, that Christians and Jews have corrupted the Scriptures, and teach that everyone must instead accept the teachings of the Qur’an. However, the Christian Bible predates Muhammad and Islam by more than 575 years and the Jewish Torah predates Muhammad and Islam by 1,000 to 3,000 years. Muhammad said for Muslims to read the Bible for ‘Guidance and Light’ (Surah 29:46 Muslims are told by Allah, not to question the authority of the scriptures of the Christians, saying, "And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say: We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one.” So for Islam to say that the Bible is corrupted, is to call Muhammad a liar for recommending it, therefore deception of taqiyyah is being practiced here also.
In addition, Islam teaches that only Muslims will be admitted to Paradise or what we refer to as Heaven (Sura 5:72: “Unbelievers are those that say: God is the Messiah, the son of Mary." For the Messiah himself said: "Children of Israel, serve God, my Lord and your Lord. He that worships other gods besides God, God will deny him Paradise, and the fire shall be his home. None shall help the evildoers. Even though Jews and Christians are considered 'People of the Book.”(5:68 AYA).
And when compared with the Jewish and Christian scriptures, Islam teaches that ‘Unbelievers’ are those that say that Allah is not the true and only god (Sura, 14:9: “Has not the news reached you, of those before you, the people of Nuh (Noah), and 'Ad, and Thamud? And those after them? None knows them but Allah. To them came their Messengers with clear proofs, but they put their hands in their mouths (biting them from anger) and said: "Verily, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent, and we are really in grave doubt as to that to which you invite us.” [Islamic monotheism]), thus proving that Allah is NOT the same god worshiped by Jews and Christians because Allah is strictly a vengeful god/Satan, while the God of the Bible is a living, loving, and forgiving God 2 Corinthians 6:16: As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
This bears out the premise that the true God strives to be one with man, while the false god Allah/Satan wants all men enslaved to him. NOT the premise of a recognized religion…but most definitely the premise of a Nazi type cult. Muslims claim the Qur’an is the verbatim word of God, and that Muhammad is the last prophet of God (Quran, 33:40: “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Apostle of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things” and is also stated in the first of the Five Pillars of Islam found in the Hadith: “I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Mohammed is His messenger’), and according to Mohammad himself the first Muslim”, (AlAn’am, 6:162,163: “Say (O Muhammad): ‘Verily, my prayer, my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah alone, the Lord of all that exists. He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the Muslims.”
They also believe in the authority of the Sunnah— (سنة, Arabic) along with the hadith is the verbally transmitted record of the teachings, deeds and sayings, silent permissions (or disapprovals) of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, as well as various reports about Muhammad's companions. The examples and teachings of Mohammad (Yusuf 12:108: “Say ‘O’ Muhammad: This my way; I invite unto Allâh...” Add to that their belief in the Hadith, the record of the prophet’s actions and statements relating to life, personal conduct, lack of morals and manners, and you have one vile contradiction to the definition of a religion. Muslims believe that their sole purpose in life is to worship Allah/Satan that nothing else matters (Qur’an 51:56: "I have only created jinn’s and men, that they may serve Me." while Jews and Christians believe in the sanctity and purpose of life while at the same time serving the living God’s will (Job 19:25: “I know that my Redeemer lives”.
Islam on the other hand requires one to be a blind following, unquestioning servant.
Again, the free will to serve or not serve is laid upon the believer in a true religion but it is demanded of people in the Islam (Qur’an 2:155156e: "Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits, but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere—who say when afflicted with calamity: 'To ALLAH we belong, and to Him is our return."
But the living, loving God wants man to be happy in this life (Ps37:4: “Delight yourself in the Lord;” 1Thesilonians 5:16 “Rejoice always;” Jm1:3: “Consider it all joy my brethren when you encounter various trials...”
And that is another premise allowed for in a religion but NOT in a cult or a Nazi type political ideology, and that is the right to question. True religions allow for questions, Nazism does not, moreover the punishment for questioning Islam is death. There is NO punishment for questions in the religions of Judaism or Christianity, in fact, questioning is encouraged for through questions comes understanding and acceptance, something NO cult or Nazi ideology such as Islam, accepts or allows.
Muslims say that past revelations, as for example those in the Holy Bible, have been changed, corrupted, or compromised, thus their belief that the Qur’an is the unaltered, untouched, and final revelation of God.
I have personal experience with a group of Muslims that call themselves “Muslims Against Sharia.” Using their Taqiyyah/deception they were pretending to remove those parts of the Quran that were offensive to Western culture, in order to make it more palatable. My first thought was: then there would be no Quran. But instead I responded with: “By whose authority to you change the Quran, your god’s own words.” Instead of answering, they responded with…”The Christians changed their’ religion at the Reformation!” My response was: “No! The Christian religion has never changed, the reformation changed some people, not the religion. People became corrupt not Christianity.”
(Allah promises in the Qur’an, in Surah Al Hijr, chapter 15 verse 9: "We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; And we will assuredly guard it (from corruption.” Something I know not to be the case. One can’t guard from corruption or corrupt something that is already corrupt.
But to Muslims the Holy Bible is nothing more than a fairy tale.
The Qur’an teaches that Islam is the continued faithful religion in the same line as the Prophets who were before Muhammad (42:13 AYA: “…the same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined in the time of Noah ...” Ironically the religion practiced at the time of Noah was Satan/ (Allah’s) religion. At the time a pure Paganist Cult and/or Atheism. Out of the millions of people on the earth only Noah was faithful to God. It is the reason for the Great Flood. God killed all of Satan/Allah’s followers, everyone on the earth save Noah and his family, leaving Satan/Allah with no followers.
While the hadith and the Sunnah acts as a supplement to the Qur’an, it still demands that Sharia be followed. Sharia literally means ‘way’ or ‘path’ and is the code of conduct and political law of Islam. Most Muslims believe Sharia is derived from two primary sources of Islamic law: the precepts set forth in the Quran, and the example set by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the Sunnah and Hadith. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics, and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting. Sharia is applied by Islamic judges, or aids. The imam has varying responsibilities depending on the interpretation of Sharia. While the term is commonly used to refer to the leader of communal prayers, the imam may also be a scholar, religious leader, or political leader. And herein is the sticking point. Because the imam is both a spiritual and political leader, and because Sharia is applied by Islamic judges, Sharia itself becomes a political system instituted as the definitive way of existence, touching upon virtually every aspect of daily life and society. Since Sharia is indeed a political system and at the very core of Islam then Islam therefore is a political ideological system, not unlike Nazism as well as a cult but certainly not a religion. Moreover, because of that state of political ideology, Nazism was and has never been considered a religion. And yet, just because Muslims portray themselves as a religion, peaceful or otherwise, the ignorant Western cultures recognize Islam as a religion. This my friend is all part and parcel of the deception of Islamic Taqiyyah.
While the ‘Golden Rule’ (Matthew 7:12: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them,” or some derivative of said Rule, might be the hoped for basis for daily living, it is however ‘NOT demanded’ of a true religion’s followers, because of free will to either follow or not follow its tenets. Yet, Islam demands Sharia law be followed with NO exceptions. Sharia law denies the right of Muslims to leave and thusly, is in contravention of one of the most fundamental principles of human rights (free will to leave a group of one’s own volition). But on the other hand, one of the reasons for the growth of Islam has been that becoming a Muslim is a one-way street. Whether by birth or conversion (likely to have been a forced conversion) once you are a Muslim the only way out, under Sharia law, is death, usually by beheading.
Another example of Sharia is shown in how Muslim men are instructed to practice the total subjugation of women, who are viewed as property and in reality as slaves, to be disposed of at will at the whim of their husbands. They are, for all intents and purposes, actually lord and master over both their wives and their children, with the authority to actually kill them if they feel the need to do so under the guise of ‘honor killings,’ something a true religion would never allow nor condone.
Also as I have mentioned is the use by the followers of Islam, the practice known as taqiyyah, which is basically the obligation to lie and cheat if it promotes the spread of Islam. The word ‘taqiyyah’ literally means to protect against, or conceal. Taqiyyah is the Islamic justification for lying and deceiving. (Qur’an 66:2: "Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths" Taqiyyah is drawn explicitly from the words of Muhammad, and from the examples he and his successors set. Muslims are specifically instructed and encouraged to lie, and told to lie to all nonbelievers just to spread Islam. (Qur’an 16:106 establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to lie.) Due to this fact alone, Islam removes all integrity from its followers. Once again, this is a tactic used by a cult to obtain blind, unquestioning followers NOT by a religion trying to secure followers to the way of a living, loving God.
In addition to ‘taqiyyah’, there is the practice of “kitman,” known as lying by omission. In Islamic jurisprudence kitman is (in Arabic كتمان "secrecy, concealment") it is a subfield of Ḥiyal another form of taqiyyah (the practice of deception of Oath Trickery), consisting of the art of making ambiguous statements, paying lip-service to authority while reserving personal opposition, in a kind of political camouflage. Kitman and Hiyal are also allowed and encouraged. An example of kitman would be when Muslims quote only a fragment of a verse. (Qur’an 5:32: “that if anyone kills, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind," while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse, “…and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them become prodigals of the earth." And those that come after (Qur’an 5:36: "As for those who disbelieve, lo! If all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of the Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom," mandating murder in undefined cases of ‘corruption’ and ‘mischief.’ Again, lying by omission is another tactic used by cults to gain followers by concealing the whole truth of what they are or do.
Islam is a progressive ideology as all cults are. The core of the cult is hidden. As if pealing it like an onion only to find that at the core there is nothing worthwhile, but by that time it is too late one is committed and in the case of Islam, leaving is a death sentence. In Christianity there is nothing hidden. John 3:16 happily and unashamedly exposes the very core of Christianity right up front. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
What are Muslims taught?
To understand the true nature of the cult and political aspects of Islam you have to understand the beginnings of Islam. Muslims are told and believe that in the beginning their god (or Allah as Muslims call him, which comes from the Arabic word ‘elah’ meaning 'a god' or something that is worshipped) sent prophets to all nations to tell the people to worship Him and Him alone. Abraham called upon his people to reject the worship of idols. Muslims claim their god called Abraham and his people to Islam, but the people rejected Islam, becoming the Children of Israel (Jews) instead. God put Abraham through many tests, and he passed all of them. For his many sacrifices, God proclaimed that he would raise from amongst his descendants a great nation. Whenever people from his offspring started to stray away from the truth, which was to worship none but their god alone and to obey His commandments, their god sent them another prophet called Mahammad steering them back to his will.
Many prophets were sent amongst the children of Abraham, for example his two sons Isaac and Ishmael, along with Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon, Moses, and of course, Jesus are considered prophets. Each prophet was sent to the Children of Israel (the Jews) when they went astray from the true religion of the god (Allah), and it became obligatory for them to follow the messenger who was sent to them and to obey their commandments. All of the messengers came with the same message, to reject worship of all other beings except the god (Allah) alone and to obey His commandments. Some disbelieved the prophets, while others believed. Those that believed the prophets became followers of Islam and Allah, henceforth to be known as Muslims. This goes against everything Jews and Christians know to be true.
The made-up concept of Allah is Satan’s reality, it is just a bastardized version of the pagan moon god, Hubal, and as such the word ‘Allah’ is simply a title. It means ‘the god’. It is actually the god that the First Commandment refers to in Exodus 20:1–17, “You shall have no other gods before Me.” God is acknowledging that there indeed are other gods meaning Satan and pagan gods but “don’t put them before ME!” And since Muslims claim Allah is the same as Yahweh and Yahshua (the Hebrew names for God and His son Jesus, why’ is there no mention of the name Allah as God in the Old or the New Testaments? It is ridiculous to believe that the biblical prophets were Muslims and believed in Allah, yet that is exactly what Muslims believe. When the Arabic Bible mentions Allah it is referring to Allah Yahweh but when the Qur’an talks about Allah, it is referring to al’lah Hubal. While Christians and Jews are mentioned in the Qur’an as the custodians of scripture, they are believed by Muslims to be the custodians of the Qur’an’s scripture NOT the scripture of The Holy Bible, because Muslims do NOT believe The Holy Bible to be the word of God (5:47 AYA/44 MP: “For to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Book.” Islam teaches that their god (Allah) gave the scripture to the Jews and Christians so that they could make known to the whole world the true knowledge of their god, being Allah, not the living, loving God the Jews and Christians believe in. And remember Allah took a Covenant from the ‘People of the Book’ (an Islamic reference to Jews and Christians), to make the Qur’an known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it (3:187 AYA). Muslims also believe the unbelieving behavior of so-called unfaithful is to conceal the truth of the Qur’an’s scripture (2:140 AYA: “Who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah?”
It is so obvious that this is a twisted and fabricated teaching not found in any other documented history.
Simply, the Bible (from the Greek: Biblos meaning 'books') was given by God to man. The Bible writers were inspired by God in their writings. Thus Christians refer to the Bible as the ‘Word of God’. (2 Timothy 3:16) “All scripture given by inspiration of God, and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” The Jewish and Christian religions are based on legitimate, proven historical events of divine intervention and revelations from God. Jews and Christian's believe The Holy Bible is the word of the living, loving God, (Exodus 34:6: the real God revealed Himself as "merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth". He is the Creator of the Universe, the God of Love, and Lord of Life. The God of Israel is this true God. He insists "Thou shall not murder the innocent and just". While Muslims believe the Qur’an (Arabic meaning 'recitation'), revealed to Mohammed over a period of about 20 years, to be the final revelation given by Allah to mankind.
In reality, the Qur’an is the combination of rantings and writings of a mortal, mad man (Mohammed), and the evil god of this world Satan. The Jewish and Christian religions teach us to peacefully spread God's word. Muhammad taught his followers to murder people who refused to follow him, a characteristic of a cult and a Nazistic ideology NOT of a so-called peaceful religion. (Qur'an 9:5 – “Fight and kill the unbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” (Characteristic of ISIS) Also, only a cult would instruct people to hide the core truth about their beliefs and not spread that truth. The foundation of a true religion is to spread the very core of its belief the ‘Good News’ to everyone.
And lastly, The Holy Bible speaks of, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; As I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” Jesus Christ, (John 13:34 3).
This is truly what the definition of religion is in America, and that is love (Romans 5:5: “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” NOT hate, NOT subjugation, NOT blind allegiance, NOT fear of leaving, NOT torture, NOT perversion, NOT murder…for these are the makings of a Satanic political and ideological cult, and these describe Islam to a tee.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Based on the premise that the so-called religion of Islam is nothing but a totalitarian political ideology not unlike Nazism, along with being an economic, social cult, and legal system hiding behind religious garb, it should then not be allowed tax exempt status or protection under American laws such as the First Amendment.
Many states, in addition to the federal government, give exemption from taxes for certain recognized organizations, like ‘churches’ (under which falls synagogues and mosques) and charities, but all applying for exemption must serve public purposes, and what purpose can a cult, as I’ve shown Islam to be, possibly serve…the answer is NONE!
To show why mosques, and hence Islam, do NOT meet the criteria for tax exemption we must start at the legal beginning, and that is with the fact that many people make the interpretative mistake that the First Amendment grants us individual or group rights. As written, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; Or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; Or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The First Amendment doesn’t grant any rights to anybody. All the amendment does is prohibit Congress from making laws about religion, speech, the press, or assembly. Therefore, Muslims do NOT have a First Amendment ‘right’ to build mosques, proselytize, or implement Sharia anywhere in our country. Therefore, that Islam is protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America is ignorant.
This leads into the actual rules that a religious entity ‘must obey’ in order to become a tax exempt entity under our laws, thus gaining a 501(c) 3 status. To qualify, the church, synagogue, mosque, or charity must be in operation for a specific legal purpose (see below). This is where the problems with mosques come into play, because as of this date our government still deems Islam a legitimate religion, which in my opinion I have proven it is not.
So, as of now, to legally qualify for tax-exempt status a mosque or Islamic Charity must meet the following requirements:
1. A mosque must be organized and operated exclusively for religious, educational, scientific, or other charitable purposes
2. Net earnings may not inure to the benefit of any private individual or shareholder
3. No substantial part of the mosque’s activity may be attempting to influence legislation
4. A mosque may not intervene in political campaigns
5. A mosque’s purposes and activities may not be illegal or violate fundamental public policy.
All mosques and Islamic Charities are in violation of our tax laws, and actually violate the public policy of our country that assures Americans that “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
Let me go over this point by point.
1. A mosque must be organized and operated exclusively for religious, educational, scientific, or other charitable purposes. I have proved by the report of documented investigations in previous articles, that Muslims, while inside mosques, primarily engage in recruiting terrorists and jihad training within their confines, and none of this is for religious purposes or for charity but is for the support of a singular purpose of killing or hurting those they consider infidels or unbelievers. As has been determined by a Federal court of law in the Muslim Holyland Foundation money laundering trial of 2007.
Note: in 2009 Obama vacated the sentences of the Muslim Holyland convicts.
2. Net earnings may not inure to the benefit of any private individual or shareholder. Muslims, while inside mosques, raise monies to bail terrorists out of jail, and to send monies overseas to support recognized terrorist organizations like The Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. All supported by the IRS.
3. No substantial part of the mosque’s activity may be attempting to influence legislation. Muslims, while inside mosques, hold meetings to organize, push for, and write papers and such to prepare their case for Sharia law to be implemented in this country.
4. A mosque may not intervene in political campaigns. Muslims, while inside mosques, actively work for, and campaign for, Muslim or pro-Muslim leaning candidates so they win their elections and thus can infiltrate our government and influence legislation in their favor.
5. A mosque’s purposes and activities may not be illegal or violate fundamental public policy. And here in number 5 is the hoped for sticking point.
American mosques are actively preaching jihad and terrorism in violation of their tax-exempt status and, a direct violation of public policy guaranteeing our right to ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ in our daily lives.
Here’s an interesting fact that some might not know, there are over 3000 mosques, each granted tax exemption, in America today, and to me there is something inherently wrong with that. Since Islam is NOT a bona fide religion (it is obviously a political ideology and a cult) how is this being allowed to happen and what are our rights as Americans that the intrusion of Islam into our society is not allowing us to have? Our rights come from the living, loving God of The Holy Bible, the book our nation was founded upon, NOT upon the self-appointed false god Allah, and certainly NOT upon the vile book known as the Qur’an.
Our rights, spelled out in our Declaration of Independence, are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, the very things Islam goes against. Islam is a cult of oppression and death, instead of a religion of life, as noted in its oppression of women, its practice of murder and its honor killings for even the mildest of transgressions. The Qur’an actually instructs Muslims to torture (Sura 4:56: “Surely, those who disbelieve in our revelations, we will condemn them to the hellfire. Whenever their skins are burnt, we will give them new skins. Thus, they will suffer continuously. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.” and they kill nonbelievers. Islam allows NO liberty for its followers for it is a cult of slavery, submission and subjugation.
Women are forced to cover their faces and bodies (Qur’an: 24:31: “And tell the believing women to subdue their eyes, and maintain their chastity. They shall not reveal any parts of their bodies, except that which is necessary. They shall cover their chests with their ‘khimar’, and shall not relax this code in the presence of other than their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their husbands, their sons, the sons of their husbands, their brothers, the sons of their brothers, the sons of their sisters, other women, the male servants or employees whose sexual drive has been nullified, or the children who have not reached puberty. They shall not strike their feet when they walk in order to shake and reveal certain details of their bodies. All of you shall repent to God, O you believers, that you may succeed.), and are at the total command and will of their husbands.” Some or all of that may even seem righteous but they are extreme and forced. They are all in bondage to the law of Sharia. Something Jesus came to set us free from.
Children are often raped and molested. And contrary to what Muslims admit, homosexuality is not frowned upon, especially with young boys (Sura LII:24 "And there shall wait on them [the Muslim men] young boys of their own, as fair as virgin pearls." Sura LXXVI: 19: "They shall be attended by boys graced with eternal youth, who will seem like scattered pearls to the beholders." This is why your Muslim president just decreed a threating law that forces public schools to allow boys and girls to choose the bathroom, locker room and shower of their choice, promoting perversion, sodomy and sexual attacks.
And conversion to another religion, if caught, ends in death. Islam allows no happiness because it is an all-consuming oppressive way of life that does NOT allow for any individuality or free will at all. You either follow its tenets to the letter, you NEVER question or speak out against Islam or you will die.
So how can anyone be happy under Islam…they can’t, they live in fear. Fear of not only the Kaffaar, but mostly of the judgment of Sharia and their fellow Muslims.
So, if Islam goes against our inalienable right to ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,’ guaranteed to us under our Constitution and Declaration of Independence, if Islam goes against what God the Creator has set down for us, how can Islam be what our Founding Fathers meant by a religion…it can’t be. And if it’s NOT a religion as set down by the writings of our Founders, no matter what The Supreme Court says (remember they must uphold the Constitution not make law), how can it be given religious tax exemption status…it can’t! It really is that simple.
Remember Obama said: “ISIL is not Islam.” He lies as he was taught to do in the Quran.
Obama was also knowingly involved in another form of taqiyyah called ‘Ḥiyal’ the practice of deception in ‘Oath or Treaty Trickery’, consisting of the art of making ambiguous statements, paying lip-service to authority while reserving personal opposition, in a kind of political camouflage. He used this once when he took his ‘Oath of Office,’ and as least one other significant time, when he made the secret treaty with Iran. Only Obama and the Iranians understood this was all HIYAL!
Is this what you want for the future of America?
