I got this email about a postage stamp that celebrates muslim hoidays. and how no one should buy it because after all lets remember all the bad things muslims have done to us. here is what it says
REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office.
All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!"
To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!
ok first of all was it a MUSLIM attach on 9/11 or an AL QUAIDA attack? they are not interchangable any more than christianity and abortion bomber are interchangable.
so lets think about some of the crimes Christianity has wrought upon society.
Priests who think they have absolute power over young people and sexually abuse them using their power of authority to take advantage.
salem witch trials
persecution of the Jews in WWII
Catholic monks and priests condoned and participated in executing Serbians in Croatia
Christianity orignially viewed disability as due to sin.
People bomb abortion clinics and kill abortion doctors in the name of Christianity.
(how is this different than bombing planes in the name of muslim?)
so lets remember that Jesus said, Thou shalt not kill
and yet all these things happened in the name of Christianity.
by that same token
The Prophet Mohamad said to his army before going to a fight "Depart in the name of Allah, and by his help. And kill not any old man nor young boy nor child, nor woman, But be good doers for Allah loves those who do good.
and all these things happened in the name of muslim
so if all muslims are bad due to the actions of some, then all christians are bad due to the actions of their members.
you cant have it both ways. if you CHOOSE to believe in Christianity that is your CHOICE. If others choose to believe in Muslim religion that is their CHOICE. how does YOUR choice negate someone ELSE's right to choose? because you choose one doesnt mean the other is wrong. Religion preaches tolerance and its members somehow translate this to intolerance in the name of their religion.
I make no secret that I choose no religion. But here I am in my non religion with a passion for human rights. while the religions spend their time attacking each other.
