Same Old, Same Old

We stand in solidarity with our Coptic Christian brothers and sisters who face Muslim wrath in Egypt.

No Christian is safe from Islam,sadly the left of the western world think otherwise.

Islam is a political movement as much as a religion. The West happily accepts the idea of Muslim nations, but is aghast at the idea that a nation would define itself as Christian. It has been the leftist agenda of western Christian nations to offically de-Christianize, i.e., secularize, themselves. Must. Not. Offend.

Problem is, secular western ideology is 'way too soft and decadent to stand up to the hard ideology of Islam. It takes discipline, character, principle, etc. -- the kind that, historically, emanate from more robustly Christian cultures.

One day, we may reconsider our (the West's) present-day loathing of the Crusades. The view of these is 'way too one-sided. The Muslims were clearly the original aggressors. If they had not been stopped, Europe would have fallen centuries ago, and the world would be unimaginatively different than it is now -- no USA, no Canada, no Australia, New Zealand, etc. as we know them.
