plucked from a recent email from one of my favorite organizations, Liberty Counsel, little g finds great inspiration...Matthew Staver quotes our sixth president, John Quincy Adams...
"The precept of the Quran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that (Mohammed) is the prophet of God ... As the essential principle of (Mohammed's) faith is the subjugation of others by the sword; it is only by force, that his false doctrines can be dispelled, and his power annihilated. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force."
Of course, this left me stabbed down the center of my being in a split decision, arguing with myself over which way to go with it -- whether I was going to use this snippet of JQA as the seed, prompting me to seek and find more...Or, would I sit stymied by frustration and do nothing with it, letting the absurdity devour me from the inside out and fully abandon any opportunity for true enlightenment?
But splendid is as splendid does.
In the process of unearthing the more, I discovered a brand spanking new website -- Apologetics Press. Although -- let me clarify: Apologetics Press is hardly new; it's birth dates back to the seventies! It's merely new to me.
And along these lines of the more I know, the more I learn I don't know -- how crazy is it that our government has known about the threat of Islam for so very long? How mind-boggling to realize that John Quincy Adams had studied and written in-depth on the subject, recording it for all future generations of government to take note -- to heed -- to perhaps take advantage of -- and most importantly, to use such knowledge in the security and protection of our Constitutional Republic.
As I begin to think -- what a freakin' waste of expertise and fair warning.
Now normally I would give you all a tidbit or two, a morsel, just something to stave off the hunger pangs, but today, I say no. If you want to know what I read @ Apologetics Press you will need to go to @ Apologetics Press -- so just hit THIS. My deep appreciation goes out to Dave Miller, who wrote the post, as well as to the entire organization, for producing such a bounty of knowledge for all to partake (and without asking for anything in return.) Just think of it as a place where fruits of the Vine run amuck and it is good. So good. How could anyone say no to that?
New subject, same topic: Go Duncan Hunter.
The THING is:
When responding to the question as to what do we know and when did we know it...America?
Oh, we've known.
We've known everything we need to know on Islam for a very long time. And it isn't bigotry, Ben Affleck.
So here are my final thoughts on the day, this day:
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Make it a Good Day, G
