Below is an essay by Mr Paul H. Yarbrough that serves as a good warning against applying simplistic abstractions like equality to very complex things like religions and the cultures which grow out of them.
The 55 delegates to the constitutional convention in 1787 were comprised of 52 Christians, 3 Deists and one of unknown beliefs.
In the mid-term elections of 2018, some 50 Muslims were elected to Federal, State, and local (county and municipal) governments in the United States.
By the year 2030, the Muslim birthrate will exceed the Christian birth rate in the United States. It appears Christianity's great victory at The Battle of Tours has been outflanked to the west.
But none of this should matter in the grand land of "all men are created equal" blather. Of course, if this oft-misunderstood quote, generally attributed to Jefferson, has the quality of truth, why are such statistics kept? Statistics are only available if there is contrast. If everyone is equal there are no stats. So, we must be reminded that all of the world’s people will be made equal by some invented puritanical “shining city on a hill”; or by an equally silly and invented “American Exceptionalism.”
The establishment, or the left, or the political class or whatever its current-running name—call it Washington--, keeps such stats so they can feign concern for while posturing as protecting “its citizens”; at least offering concerns and protection for the politically correct citizens.
They are not concerned about Muslim terrorists since they pose no threat to Washington’s power. Therefore, the more the merrier as far as they are concerned.
The real threats as far as Washington is concerned come from wild-eyed people in places like Ruby Ridge and Waco. That’s why Washington will move heaven and earth to kill these fiends en masse, but will simply raise a flag over a pile of rubble in New York while saluting and seeking to assassinate a single lunatic for the murder of thousands. And by the way, don’t sweat Muslim immigration. The “shining city on the hill” will bathe them in “American Exceptionalism.”
Muslim terrorists we are told are the exception, not the peaceful rule of the true Islamic faith. So, with the foresight of the inimical, deceased, Ted Kennedy regarding immigration we now have the specter of Islamic congressmen such as newly elected Ilan Omar tweeting cleverly painted Jesus slurs thrown at the Christian Vice President, Mike Pence: “Jesus take the wheel.” If Pence had retweeted something on the order of Mohammed drinks and drives, the collective cry by Washington of insensitivity to the “religion of peace” would be heard as far as Mecca. But Pence is simply mocked because he doesn’t go for drinks with strange women.
It is told to our newly arriving huddled masses that the Bible and Crosses are disallowed in public taxpayer squares, and schools but Muslim women may wear their hijab even if it means concealing their identity in a legal search. The precedent of course borrowed from that grand dame of Eastern culture, Nikki Haley, who proudly tears down the Confederate flag while supporting her Sikh relatives right to carry knives in their turbans.
The Saracens were not invading Christendom in the 8th century any more than they are invading These United States today—not so? Wouldn't you suppose they swept northward into the Frankish kingdom spreading peace and goodwill?
Not unlike our own native-born Louis Farrakhan message of peace, “White people deserve to die, and they know, so they think it’s us coming to do it”; or “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.” These are people of peace. They are people of love. They could be Valentine messengers.
In 2018 the first openly homosexual governor was elected to office (Colorado). In 2016 the first woman ran for president and the first openly firmly-committed socialist made a serious attempt for the same office.
It is no stretch and a prediction that 2020 will see an openly "peaceful" Muslim as at least the vice-presidential candidate, probably as a Democrat since they love to grab the weird stuff first. The Republicans only climb on the weird bandwagon later.
It would by no means be a stretch to see a 2024 presidential Muslim candidate and ultimate winner. Then another first: The first swearing-in with the hand of the presidential-elect placed on the Koran.
The last Senate chaplain of great renown was Peter Marshall, remembered well through a biography written by his wife, Catherine: A Man Called Peter. With the current birthrate of Muslims vs Christians perhaps before the 22nd century, some widow of a man of the religion of peace will have an opportunity to write a biography on the order of A Man Called Abdul.
Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!
Anathema to the Union!
