Banning Muslims? Seriously?

This isn’t a laughing matter, but it should be! Hence, my cartoon.

This is the only kind of band Muslims I would support. Hm. I wonder if the name’s taken.

    Haha excellent cartoon!

    I propose a ban on stupidity, perhaps beginning with the purchase of a gag for the islamophobes or perhaps a link to some electric shock therapy for every stupid utterance.

    No it’s not a laughing matter. I’m a little disappointed that you think it should be. This issue carries with it some undeniable facts that can not be simply swept away no matter what our ideology is. One of those facts is that the Koran and the Islamic religion does not in any way teach peaceful co-existence with other religions. It ONLY teaches dominion and the use of violence if necessary to obtain it. There is no golden rule in Islamic teaching…the only major world religion without some form of the doctrine of love for all. The Islamic faith is completely incompatible in its teaching with everything we hold dear and true in this country. I fully recognize that most Muslims do not follow or adhere to the teaching of their prophet and the Koran and have chosen to embrace a more peaceful version of Islam.. Ironically, they do so in defiance of their holy book, not in adherence to it. There is no “New Covenant” supporting them. It is the radicals who are faithful to the teaching of the prophet…not the peaceful. BTW – I hope we can have a frank discussion about this without resorting to accusing me of Muslim bashing. You opened up a subject with strong opinions on both sides so please let the discussion reflect that.

    The immigration issue and the efforts to properly screen and control immigration has been characterized by many as some sort of cold hearted contradiction to our values. For some this may be true. But not for most I think. Our long and healthy tradition of accepting immigrants into this country has indeed made us better…but it has been with the understanding that those who want to come here do so to embrace our way of life, not to transform it into their own. We even have Muslim groups here presently who are demanding the right to use Sharia Law in their communities. NOTHING could be further from the principles of freedom and equality that has made this nation great.

    Another problem with it is the very real fact that nearly all terrorist activities has been from Islamic radicals. Of course there is the lone nut job in all countries and religions. But organized terrorism has virtually one source…the Islamic faith. most of our recent terror attacks in this country have involved improperly screened immigrants using our failed security protocols against us. Donald Trump has become a lightening rod because he sees things in black and white and speaks his mind. I’m not sure that would make him a great President, but he has clearly done us a service of revealing just how deep the resentment is towards having mindless political correctness shoved down our throats all the time. Interestingly enough though Donald Trump is being demonized for expressing his view on the matter, previously on at least 3 occasions exactly what he is proposing was implemented by liberal democrat Presidents without all of this venom being spread. It seems we have been more capable of having honest discussions in the past than we are presently able to.

    I believe there needs to be a balanced approach which recognizes the needs for security while still seeking to identify a healthy immigration process which would admit those who genuinely want to come and embrace our great way of life.

    But banning the koranic passages that dictate terror and horror to infidels might be way to wake up our Islamic sisters and brothers to the ills of their religion?. A few examples:

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

    And please no “out of context” excuses. Imams and terrorists don’t follow said excuses but follow the literal word of the Koran.
