Treatment of Muslims and Christians contrasted

by Brenda Spurlock

When Muslims rallied in support of suspected terrorist Nuradin Abdi at the federal court building in Columbus, Ohio on June 16, observers say there were no armed guards surrounding the group. There were no snipers on the roof and no police in riot gear on the courthouse steps. There was no injunction read aloud by a federal marshal forbidding them to enter the building and no restriction to ½ of the public sidewalk.

No, all of that was reserved for Christians who came to town seeking mercy for unborn babies being slaughtered in Columbus abortuaries, Christians who came peacefully protesting the fact that sexual perversion has been elevated to a constitutional right and Islam is being publicly proclaimed as "a way" to God. Christ said, "...the way is narrow that leads to life, and few find it" (Matthew 7:14). He said, "...no one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6).

When gentle saints came to Columbus we were treated like, well, like Muslim terrorists!

Lives and souls were saved when Operation Save America (OSA) brought the gospel of Christ to the streets of Columbus, Ohio, July 17-24. That was the expected outcome. What was unexpected was the revelation that our government officials are absolutely terrified of offending Muslim immigrants. Like nations dealing with Adolph Hitler during the Second World War, government officials are trying very hard not to arouse the ire of the devil. It seems safe to say that terrorism has worked very well as far as our local and federal governments are concerned, Muslims have become a privileged class.

OSA Director Flip Benham spoke with Jim Stowe, Executive Director of Community Relations for the City of Columbus, about burning those things detestable to the Lord. Mr. Stowe had no problem with our burning the Roe v. Wade ruling or the gay flag, but when he was told that we planned to burn the Koran, a book that has brought more death and devastation than any other book in the past 1,000 years, he got noticeably queasy. He said, "We have a very good relationship with the Muslim community, we don't want to destroy that."

Flip said, "The government is an absolute coward with the Muslims, because it's afraid of being blown up. At the same time the government is a bully and feels constrained to show its power over what it considers to be the weaker members of the population. Christians don't go out and kill or blow up court buildings, we are restrained by the words of Christ, so that makes us weak in the eyes of bullies." He said, as Christians, we tolerate Islam, its adherents have the right to choose what they want to believe, but, he said, "We must continue to speak the truth, to call it what it is, a lie from the pit of hell!"

"And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28)
