| Allah or Jesus?
By Rick Mathes
Last month I attended my annual training session
that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance.
During the training session there was a presentation
by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim
faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.
particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a
great presentation of the basics of Islam complete with a video.
After the presentations, time was provided for
questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I
directed my question to the Imam and asked: "Please, correct me if I'm wrong,
but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy
jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world. And, that by killing an
infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in
Heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?"
There was no disagreement with my statements and
without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"
responded, "So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah
have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to
Heaven. Is that correct?"
The expres sion on his
face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had
just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
sheepishly replied, "Yes".
I then stated, "Well,
Sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul II commanding all
Catholics to kill those of your faith, or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to
do the same in order to go to Heaven!"
The Imam was
I continued, "I also have a problem with
being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers
to kill me.
"Let me ask you a question. Would you
rather have your Allah who tells you to kill me in order to go to Heaven, or my
Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wa nts you
to be with me?"
You could have heard a pin drop as
the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say,
the organizers and/or promoters of the "Diversification" training seminar were
not happy with Rick's way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the
truth about the Muslim beliefs.
I think everyone in
the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the liberal justice system,
liberal media, and the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized.
Please pass this on to all your e-mail contacts.
