The Truth Shall Set You Free…It might piss you off first, but it will set you free.

Dr. Terry Jones – Who Is on His Side? Sarah Palin? Glenn Beck? Right Wing Nut Jobs?

Posted by politicalmonkey2010 on September 8, 2010

If this is Christianity, God help us.

As an American living abroad I can promise you all that the Quran burning has absolutely exploded all over the media in the middle east. I wrote about this very issue back in July, you can read the correspondence I have had with Dr. Terry..and I use that term loosely. I have hammered home the point that these vile Islamaphobic tweets, rallies against a Mosque in New York, California and Tennessee are only serving to fuel hate and division.
Gen. Petreaus, the top US commander in Afghanistan has warned that troops’ lives will be in danger if this Quran burning goes forward. He went on to say the action could cause problems “not just in Kabul, but everywhere in the world”. We are living in an instant news world, bombarded by 24 hour a day news channels in EVERY language. The White House, The Secretary of State, The Vatican, Evangelicals, Jews are all condemning this Quran burning.
While Dr. Terry Jones may only have 50 people in his cult church, these 50 people, and every person who has tweeted out, blogged, participated in some vile, uneducated anti Islamic rhetoric has an impact. What I find even more appalling is those who do this wrapped up in the flag of the United States of America under the guise of patriotism. Do not confuse patriotism with ignorance.
Did I say ignorance? How about self-serving, ignorance, with a dollar bill attached. Could I be talking about Sarah Palin? Her comments via Twitter with regards to Park 51 “Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healingPeace Loving Muslims” So Sarah continues to climb aboard and promote anti-Islamic rhetoric with even more uneducated tweets. While she has not directly addressed the Quran burning, she needs to, and she needs to do it for no other reason than it is the right thing to do. For a woman who professes to care about our troops, evidently Gen. Petreaus’s comments are not good enough for her to step up and do the right thing, to retract her ill informed comments. But then again, Sarah’s son Track Palin is no longer serving in Iraq, so I guess if it doesn’t directly affect Sarah and her world, it is not important. But Sarah my family is still serving in Iraq and Afghanistan…as are hundreds of thousands of others. To us those troops and their safety is still important. As guest speaker at Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally, which called for a return to the Christian God, hence excluding at least 22% of the American public. (I have a sneaking suspicion that that number is even greater than 22% if we were limited to what ever Sarah and Glenn’s version of God is).
It is time for these “Americans” to do the right thing, come on Glenn, Sarah, Pamela Geller, and the rest of the right wing nuts jobs – step up to the plate, DO THE RIGHT THING, the world is watching, God is watching..CONDEMN THIS QURAN BURNING.

    yes. so right. Sarah, Beck, Limbaugh, Fox News, Coultier, Bachmann, and the rest all deserve credit for inciting fear mongering among their fringe right. If any troops or muslims are hurt from their mess, blood is on their hands and they’re criminally accountable. Honor the troops….Dont think so. They’ll send the troops to fight their battles but never go themselves. Their hero Cheney being the worst offender, with 5 deferments from ‘Nam sent our boys and girls in harms way to kill innocent people over so-called WOMD ….in an illegal war.

    Unfortunately over 50% of Americans will back the Conservative Right no different than those who supported Hitler. Its a time of desparation, and their are a lot of impatient sheep. Shame. But perhaps having the conservative right and witnessing our country go downhill at extreme speeds (unless the right take credit for Obama getting us on our feet, which they might. They tend to STEAL credit after casting stones…).

    Its a sad and repetive affair.

    • Linn I am refusing to publish the link you had in your comment, it is nothing more than pure uneducated propaganda and shows a complete lack of knowledge on your part, but I am curious..did you get it from Sarah Palin? πŸ™‚

    This radical action does not represent all those who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to the Glory of God the Father. This action is another way of attacking the one true church which is built on the Rock, Jesus Christ.
    Shifting sand…… whatever is built on this, will not stand.
