Obama & The UN; A One Faith World?

Consider this quote from Obama:

“Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into UNIVERSAL, rather than RELIGIOUS-SPECIFIC VALUES. “NOW THIS IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT FOR SOME WHO BELIEVE IN THE INERRANCY OF THE SACRED SCRIPTURES. But in a PLURALISTIC DEMOCRACY, we have NO CHOICE. Politics depends on our ability to persuade ea. Other of common aims based on a common reality…AT SOME FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL, RELIGION. DOES NOT ALLOW FOR COMPROMISE.

It sounds a lot to me like Obama doesn’t like any of the major religions but is perhaps a believer in One-Faith-of-God…an inoffensive global religion. The one world religion has all the hallmarks of a trend. Remember the Soviets ‘allowed’ a state religion, much as the Chinese do now. It’s a part of the Marxist way.
Here’s an interesting excerpt from a shadowy document intended for American application:

This is the purpose of One-Faith-Of-God. To give all Christians and Jews around the world an idea greater than any divided and misguided loyalties. To unite as one, to heal the world, to protect the world and to give back life to the solar system.
49.2 The UN resolution to form the state of One-Faith
It shall be a mission of the Union that the United Nations shall eventually pass all necessary motions and direction that the sovereign state of One-Faith be established in accordance with the constitution written.

I wonder then if all other religions besides the state-sanctioned one will be considered cults.

Obama America- A Black Minister’s View & Islam in America

Video link below from a Black Minister talking about how dangerous Obama is and lists the reasons why he has this conclusion. He is really tough on his people and whites too that have been taken in. He has some interesting comments for all of us. Says if his people had sat in his church for 20 years and did not know what he was talking about: well, you just gotta hear this man.Also mentions standing up to stop Obama from getting rid of Christmas! Perhaps because Barack and Michelle don’t celebrate Christmas or birthdays or because he suspects that BO is respectful of the Muslim Communtiy. Eh?

He says he cannot believe that so many are willing to turn over the military to him plus much much more. See and listen.

Hon. James David Manning, PhD preaches about Obama’a mama, grandmama, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezco, William Ayers, Christmas and more in the message called “God Save America” preached on Saturday, 18 October 2008.

Here is a  link that explains what the Minister may be talking about.Hat tip to GoodTimePolitics for this additional link on If Obama is a Christian, why doesn’t he Celebrate Christmas?

Christmas has become something far from what it was intended.  With that said, I totally agree with the Hon.James David Manning in the video link’s views. The hardest thing for me in all of this mess we find ourselves in..is how so many that claim they love the Lord seem to be so blind about this man. Jeremiah Wright is now saying he did not know Obama’s views were so extreme.. yeah, just like Germany did not know about Hitler. Just like so many that want to close up their mind to common sense.

*A recent Pew Survey found that 25% of American Muslims support Suicide Bombing*

The following video collection is a study of Islam and of Barack Hussein Obama’s cultural and political connection to said religion. You may find it a bit long, but it is quite worth it. (A weekend documentary!)

The speaker is highly knowledgeable of both the Quran and the Hadith (sayings of the prophet) and he gives you textual and audio readings of both primary sources to make his case (he is also an Arab speaker).

It is imperative that every voter is exposed to this subject, since it exposes an aspect of the Islamic faith, and of Obama’s background, that the Media (even Fox) is afraid to discuss.

I Confess I watched Oprah’s Television show for many years and usually took issue with some that criticized her.. However, I did not see the show on a daily basis, so naturally a few years ago I was taken aback by some of her comments and guests (of a spiritual nature). I began then to question this woman whom I had at one time greatly admired..I remember thinking..wow with her power to influence so many.I hope she gets it together because she certainly has enough power to take many down the wrong path.

As many others, I thought she did a great deal of good. So when I began to doubt and question and pray for discernment with some of her comments..I was blown away and deeply saddened.

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing. but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Matthew 7:15 We have to be careful my friends, we must investigate for ourselves..no one can read the bible for you..Investigate and ask God to help you understand, If we attended church each week for the rest of our lives we would probably have the equivalent of a kindergarten education in His word. We read other books, we look at the bible and say, I just don’t understand or I don’t like to read, meanwhile we can easily be led whichever way the wind blows..Ask Him to help you..Psalms 32:8 says “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.” I have to admit, many times in my life I have been like a horse or mule..and sometimes still SLIP that bridle off. John 3:3-2, John 6:63,John 10:1-18, John 10:27-30

Know that New Age doctrine is alive and well..it started in Babylon and that’s another story..actually it is a very old age doctrine..Let’s not be deceived.

My greatest hope for you is that you will  be informed..so I bring you Oprah on You Tube and an excellent expose from sources below.. You may comment all you like… I am not here to argue but to inform.. You will have to make up your own mind as to what wind you will follow.. As for me, you know where I stand.

John 14:6 Jesus answered: I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

I would just like to add Oprah, that God is not Jealous of you..He is jealous for you. Imagine a parent that loved their child so much..yet that child preferred the neighbors down the street.. Or your relationship with a husband or your significant other, you believed they loved you and you loved that person with all your heart, you would walk over fire for them if need be..but one day they left you for another..Yes God is jealous for you..Not of You.

If you haven’t heard of “A Course in Miracles” or the proposed “Peace Alliance”, then please pay attention. “New Age” queen Oprah Winfrey is promoting both, and it seems that what Oprah wants she gets due to her financial status and her loyal fans.

Starting January 1, 2008, she began a daily feature on XM Satellite Radio featuring “A Course in Miracles”-one lesson a day. And also, this year, she will have her own television network.

Marianne Williamson has picked up and run with the “Miracles” course, which was channeledto a woman back in the 1960s. In 1965, Helen Schucman heard an “inner voice” saying, “This is a course in miraclesplease take note.” For seven years, she took spiritual dictation from a demon who said he was “Jesus”. “A Course in Miracles” has now become the “New Age” bible.

Here are a few statements from the course:

* There is no sin.

* The journey to the cross should be the last “useless journey”.

* Do not make the pathetic error of “clinging to the old rugged cross.”

* The Name of “Jesus” is just symbolic of all the gods to which you pray.

* The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.

* The “atonement” is the final lesson man needs to learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.

This should come as no surprise in these latter days as the Bible is clear that some will not give heed to sound doctrine but rather listen to the doctrine of demons (II Tim. 4:3,4).

But the story of Oprah’s and Williamson’s push for all things unusual and unrighteous does not stop here. Williamson is trying to get a Cabinet level seat as a part of the “Peace Alliance” push by the two women. Check out the U.S. Department of Peace website.

Think about what the Bible has to say about peace apart from the Prince of Peace. It says it will be a futile effort and even bring destruction (I Thess. 5:3). The Antichrist will play off of peace, but Daniel says “by peace he shall destroy many” (Dan. 8:25). Yet Oprah and friends believe this “Peace Alliance” will usher in an era of global peace founded on “New Age” spirituality. They refer to it as a “civil rights movement of the soul.”

We live in strange and deceptive times so to sharpen your discernment, visit our “Spiritual Deception” category at the Web site. As believers, let us thank God for the real course in miracles. It’s called the Bible.

Radio Note: Warren Smith is one of the best expounders on these issues for when he was a “New Ager,” he was caught up in such things, particularly “A Course in Miracles.” Hear my hour with him on “Radio Archives” for February 2, 2008, hour one. He outlines his story in his book, “From the New Age to Amazing Grace” available in my print newsletter and soon on my Web site.

“Shame on Oprah!” 

A Christian attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund is blasting Oprah for a show that aired last week entitled “237 Reasons To Have Sex”.  I didn’t watch it, but I did see the ads for the show.

ADFspecial counsel Pat Trueman says it is shameful that Winfrey would advocate destructive behavior on her national talk show. “Shame on Oprah!” says Truman. “There are lots of children who watch the show. Many adults; many, many Christians; she’s got a loyal following because she does have good things on her show.”

But he argues that because of Winfrey’s status, giving a forum to people with what he describes as “anti-Christian” and “sinful” values only serves to popularize such behavior — and that encouraging adultery and pornography can only harm marriages.OneNewsNow

Huh?

Since when has anyone recognized Oprah as a Christian icon or role model?  She surely produces interesting TV, and does wonderful humanitarian work.  She is well known for her charity, her defense of women and children against abuse, as well as many other causes.  But she is not a saint.

The recent sex show isn’t anything new.  Last year she had Meg Ryan on talking about her work for the U.N. in India.  In the interview, footage was shown of Ms. Ryan talking to under privileged women and girls about the joys of masturbation.  Anyone who ever has watched Oprah knows she lives with her boyfriend, without benefit of marriage;  she’s pro-gay, pro-choice, pro a lot of stuff that isn’t exactly Christian.  She is also anti a lot of evil stuff – but that doesn’t make her an authority on anything – and her show, along with her philosophy is certainly not the gospel.

 desirous of helping humanity – yet her theology is more New Age than it is Christian

May Be Subject To Food Rations, Warns UN

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A loaf of bread for a day’s wages, and three measures of barley for a day’s wages; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.Revelations 6:5-6

Experts warn of food riots as foreign troops cleared to patrol American cities

The UN is warning of a food shortage crisis and drawing up plans for food rations which will hit even middle-class suburban populations as inflation and economic uncertainty causes the prices of staple food commodities to skyrocket.

The United Nation’s World Food Programme cautions today that if it doesn’t receive more funding, it will have to halt food aid to developing countries like Mexico and China.

“The WFP crisis talks come as the body sees the emergence of a “new area of hunger” in developing countries where even middle-class, urban people are being “priced out of the food market” because of rising food prices,” reports the Financial Times.  

 The warning coincides with a speech by William Lapp, of US-based consultancy Advanced Economic Solutions, who cautioned that rising agricultural raw material prices would translate this year into sharply higher food inflation.

It also parallels a prediction by Don Coxe, a Chicago-based global portfolio strategist for BMO Financial Group who correctly forecast the fall of the dollar and the rise in price of gold and oil years in advance, who last week spoke of a “global food crisis” which will cause the world to enter into, “A period of food shortages and swiftly rising prices,” leading to government embargoes.

With the U.S. on the verge of a recession and, as many analysts have warned, a potential second great depression, those long scoffed at for hoarding vast quantities of storable food may unfortunately be able to say “I told you so” if the dollar continues to deteriorate and people begin to be priced out of the food market.

Global food prices have skyrocketed by as much as 60 per cent in the past year, while UN officials warn of the likelihood of food riots.

“If prices continue to rise, I would not be surprised if we began to see food riots,” said Jacques Diouf, director-general of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, last October.

Many see the food shortages, whether real or manufactured, as simply another pretext for the implementation of martial law and the introduction of foreign troops to patrol major U.S. cities.

A recent announcement by Northcom confirmedthat U.S. and Canadian troops will be allowed to patrol each other’s countries in the event of a national emergency.

 

“U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, and Canadian Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, have signed a Civil Assistance Plan that allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency,” reads a Northcom press release.

Note from Angie

I did a post earlier on the 

NORTH AMERICA CONTINENT JOINT-MILITARY IS BORN 

and

PREMEDITATED MERGER Inside the hush-hush North American Union confab

 that speaks of this, I do want to caution that the websites that this info was taken, I am not familiar with and some of it on there seemed strange to say the least. So read with caution as to the authors.  Also I have found that there is usually some truth mixed in with ones agenda. I do believe there is a food shortage coming, evident from the various news sources..price of wheat. I know personally a restaurant owner that was paying in the fall $7 for her flour, paid 30 dollars last month, they told her it would be 40 dollars next time.. The Price of wheat is continually escalating..as the U.S. exports for better prices..

I also know there was an alliance with the North American Joint Military.. So lets try to discover the real truth together and prepare as much as we possibly can because if we are wrong and there is no food crisis or such.. That would be good news but at the same time, so much better to plan and be prepared for whatever may come.

Source below from What it all means

Russian Military Analysts are reporting in the Kremlin today that the United States has, for the first time in its history, granted rights to a Foreign Army to have ‘full power’ over the life and death of American Citizens in their own country.Though not being reported to the American people by their propaganda media organs, the United States Northern Command Military Leader, US Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, and his Canadian counterpart, Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais [both pictured top left] announced this new Military Pact this past week, and as we can read:“U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, and Canadian Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, have signed a Civil Assistance Plan that allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.“This document is a unique, bilateral military plan to align our respective national military plans to respond quickly to the other nation’s requests for military support of civil authorities,” Renuart said. “Unity of effort during bilateral support for civil support operations such as floods, forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and effects of a terrorist attack, in order to save lives, prevent human suffering and mitigate damage to property, is of the highest importance, and we need to be able to have forces that are flexible and adaptive to support rapid decision-making in a collaborative environment.”

It is interesting to note, too, that the Canadian peoples, like their American neighbors to the south, were not told of these plans for their Military Forces, and as we can read as reported by Canada’s Canwest News Service, and who say:

“Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other’s borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal. Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.”

Russian Colonel Gen Vladimir Bulgakov, Commander of Russia’s Far East Military District, points out in these reports that it is ‘no wonder’ that neither the US or Canadian War Leaders want the masses of their citizens to know about these ‘unprecedented’ events as ‘soldiers by their inherent training are for use in war, not peace’.

These reports further note that though Canada currently possesses 125,000 active Military and 36,500 Reserve Troops, the majority of which have been ‘combat hardened’ in the US Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the only Canadian Troops available for any, so called, ‘civil emergency’ in the United States, are soldiers from its Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM), and which Russian Military Commanders rate as being one of the top Special Forces Units among all of the World’s Army’s.

The more likely use of these Canadian Troops on American Soil, these reports go on to say, would be for the patrolling of US Cities during times of civil war, internal unrest, or, most fearfully, the assisting of US Police in the rounding up of masses of US Citizens for arrest and internment.

This assessment of the truest intentions of the United States War Leaders granting power over their own citizens to Canadian Special Forces Troops, appears to be supported by information coming from US Troops returning from Iraq, and as we can read as reported by the Prison Planet News Service in their report titled “U.S. Troops Asked If They Would Shoot American Citizens“, and which says:

“U.S. troops are being trained to conduct round-ups, confiscate guns and shoot American citizens, including their own friends and family members, as part of a long-standing program to prepare for the declaration of martial law, according to a soldier who recently returned from Iraq.We received an e mail from “Scott”, a member of a pipefitters union that runs an apprenticeship program called Helmets To Hard Hats, which according to its website, “Is a national program that connects National Guard, Reserve and transitioning active-duty military members with quality career training and employment opportunities within the construction industry.”

Scott writes that his company hired a soldier who had recently returned from Iraq, who told him that U.S. troops were being quizzed on whether or not they would be prepared to shoot their own friends and family members during a national state of emergency in America.”

An estimated time-line in these reports states that the American people could begin seeing Canadian Soldiers in their cities as early as this summer, as many experts are predicting that the massive food shortages being reported all around the World will begin causing food riots in many American cities.

To how bad the Global Food Crisis is becoming we can read as reported by Australia’s Adelaide Now News Service, and which says:

“A WORSENING global food shortage is a problem far more urgent than climate change, top Australian scientists have warned. The Australian Science Media Centre briefing heard why prices for some staple foods had risen by as much as 60 per cent in the past year, and how dramatic price rises are expected to sweep across all staples in the near future.”

There remains no evidence to suggest, either, that the American people themselves are aware of the brutal future being planned for them.  Even more sadly, perhaps, is the evidence suggesting that they don’t even want to know.

I can only add that I hope our countries have not gone so low as not to prepare us or prepare for us..Oh, that they had the wisdom of Joseph when he USED his God given wisdom to save his people and Egypt from famine. My hope is that this is exaggerated..especially the part where our own soldiers would have to take us to task. In any event, we need to pray for wisdom and people everywhere. It does seem the world is gearing up for the so called ‘New World Order’.

I will bless them that bless thee

I wanted to share with you some interesting tidbits from prophecy central in view of what is taking place now with Israel and our own Nation’s role.

There is a legendary story concerning an agitated Frederick the Great who, in frustration, demanded from his cabinet that somebody provide him with proof of the existence of God. There was a momentary silence before one of his counselors spoke up: “Have you considered the Jew, your Majesty?” he asked.The continuing existence of the Jew is proof positive of God’s existence, just as the existence of a Jewish state is proof positive that we are living in the last days of human government as foretold by the Bible prophets of antiquity.There are three distinct statements made within the Divine promise of blessing given to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.The first is that God will bless those who bless the Jews.

When the United States wrested its seat at the council of nations from England, it became the first nation on earth to grant full citizenship to Jews.

It was the first nation to allow the Jews an unrestricted vote. It was the first nation to recognize the incomparable blessing the Jewish people have been to humanity.

America’s second president, John Adams, said, “The Jews have done more to civilize men than any other Nation. They are the most glorious Nation that ever inhabited the earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a bauble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily than any other Nation, ancient or modern.”

And no nation on the face of the planet today, or at any time in recorded history, has been more greatly blessed than the United States of America.

The second is that God promised that in the Jews “shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Without the Jews, there would be no Bible. Jesus came to earth as a Jew. Without the Jewish Jesus, there would be no Christianity.

Apart from the theological argument, a quick look at the last hundred years or so proves the promise isn’t confined to religious blessings alone.

From 1901 to 2001, the world’s 6 billion people competed for the scarce 844 Nobel Prizes that have been awarded. Among those 6 billion people are nearly 2 billion Muslims – roughly 20 percent of the global population.

Of those 2 billion Muslims, eight have been singled out to receive the Nobel Prize – (seven if you consider that one of them was a politically motivated award mistakenly given unrepentant terrorist Yasser Arafat).

In any case, Muslims account for less than 1 percent of the total Nobel Prizes awarded in the last hundred years.

In the middle of the 20th century, the Nazis exterminated some 6 million Jews, more than half the world’s Jewish population. There are today about 14 million Jews left.

Even with half their number exterminated at the century’s midpoint, 159 of the remaining 836 Nobel Prizes were awarded to Jews, or roughly 18.8 percent of all the Nobel Prizes awarded in Nobel’s history.

(If you’re keeping track, that is about 20 times as many prizes divided among 14 million Jews than were shared by the 2 billion Muslims worldwide)

In America, the influence of American Jews is hugely disproportionate to their numbers. Conspiracists point darkly to the “Jewish influence” in education, banking, law, medicine, government, media and entertainment as evidence of a Jewish conspiracy to control the world.

They accurately point out that American Jewry accounts for less than 2 percent of America’s general population, but then draw their conclusions without the benefit of Scriptural discernment.

The “Jewish influence” in American life is part of God’s blessing on America – the “Jewish conspiracy” canard given them in reward is part of God’s curse on Israel.

“Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of My land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for My Name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations” (2 Chronicles 7:20).

The curse was partially lifted, beginning in 1948, but will not be entirely lifted until the close of the Tribulation Period.

“And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong” (Zechariah 8:13).

The Jews have returned to the Land, but they remain a “proverb and a byword among all nations” to this day.

Finally, God promised that He would “curse them that curse you.” The precision with which God kept this promise is nothing less than astonishing.

During the Crusades from 1095 to 1270, Jews in Southern Europe fled to Spain, England, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe as the result of severe persecution and wholesale massacres of the Jews.

England turned out to be the wrong place to go, because in 1290 King Edward I expelled the Jews. King Charles II did the same thing in 1394 by forcing all Jews from France. Interestingly, Spanish Jews found peace and security in Spain and Portugal while those countries were under Muslim rule.

At that point in history, Europe was fractured, ignorant and in constant turmoil, while that same period of time is known to history as the Golden Age of Islam.

The Moors were world-renowned for their knowledge of astronomy, medicine and science, and the Islamic world boasted the most extensive libraries that had ever existed to that time.

In the 1400s, the Moors were kicked out of Spain by the Papal forces of Europe. In 1492, on the same day Columbus set sail for the New World, Spain expelled any unconverted Jews who had survived the Spanish Inquisition. This time they fled back to England where the Protestant reformation now welcomed them.

Spain’s global empire lasted less than a century after it expelled its Jews, to be replaced by the Jew-friendly British Empire whose reach extended to every corner of the globe. In 1917, the British captured Palestine from the Muslims. The British Crown offered the Jews a homeland via the Balfour Declaration, and a year later, England won the First World War.

After the war, the British broke most of their promises to the Jews, restricted Jewish immigration to the Holy Land, and in the years since have increasingly turned their backs on the Jews that brought them such great blessings for more than 300 years.

The British Empire upon which “the sun never set” in 1900, had, by 1948, lost its last colony when Burma declared independence, and the British Empire was no more.

In 1933, Germany was among the most cultured and sophisticated nations in Europe. Old Berlin was Europe’s Crown Jewel. The Nazis turned on the Jews, together with most of Eastern Europe, and 12 years later, Europe’s Crown Jewel was a pile of burning rubble.

The Arab world, which had been so blessed during its Golden Age, collapsed into its present state of affairs, with most of it still operating as if electricity had never been harnessed.

The Arab Muslims supported Hitler, opposed Jewish immigration, waged repeated wars against Israel, deny Israel its rightful territory, and now mount a global jihad to finish Hitler’s goal of total extermination. The backward nature of modern Islamic culture and society are the fruits of those efforts.

Historically, wherever the Jews were welcomed, that nation flourished and prospered. Where the Jews were persecuted, those nations floundered.

It is more than just coincidence; it is an identifiable historical pattern that has continued, without deviation, since the days of the Babylonian captivity.

Babylon prospered when its Jews prospered, it fell to Persia when Neboplasser turned against them. Persia prospered until it turned on the Jews, whereupon it fell to Alexander’s Greece. And so on, throughout history, up to and including the impending collapse of the rabidly anti-Semitic United Nations.

God’s Word is true, and Bible prophecy is always 100 percent accurate. Jesus said that before He returned, ALL Bible prophecy would be fulfilled – to the tiniest “jot and tittle” – (the two most insignificant characters in the Hebrew alphabet).

In tracing Israel’s history from Babylon to the present, we see the incredible detail with which God keeps His Word. Although America continues to be Israel’s principle protector, and continues to enjoy the concomitant blessings that come with it, America’s good fortunes began to wane about the same time the White House forced Israel into the Oslo Agreement.

The “land for peace” formula called for Israel to give up some of the land of Promise in exchange for peace. In other words, it was a form of blackmail whose terms were drawn up in Washington and forced upon Israel for the express purpose of undoing what God had already done, including dividing Jerusalem and taking part of it from the Jews.

“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zechariah 12:3).

People can certainly deny any biblical connection, but the hard reality marches on with the growing shadow now falling across global society. Now it is America’s turn to discover just how serious God was about the whole “blessing and cursing” thing.

And by the time circumstances force America to recognize the danger it faces, it will be too late to do anything to affect the outcome.

“So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My Mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it ” (Isaiah 55:11).

Fair, you decide.

By Debbie Schlussel

This was so good, I reprinted from Author above, please check out her link.

All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

That’s what George Orwell wrote in his 1945 novella, “Animal Farm.”

And so it goes in 2007 at Target.

The retail giant employs Muslims and Christians (and those of many other religions). But the former is far more equal than the latter at the home of Isaac Mizrahi cheap chic and Archer Farms foods.

target2.jpgtarget.jpgislamiccrescent.jpgnochristians.jpgEarlier this year, when Muslim cashiers decided to refuse to ring up pork and pepperoni pizza at the checkout lane, Target allowed this to go on. The retailer insisted that it respect and accommodate the extreme religious beliefs of its Muslim employees despite the cost and hassle to the customer and the retailer. The practice held up lines and required double teams of cashiers to keep up with the Muslims do-and-don’t lists of scanning and ringing up items. And the practice is ongoing.

But that was then (for Muslims). This is now (for Christians). And now, Brian Bundy of Swartz Creek, Michigan, is gone from his job at Target. He was fired because, unlike its Muslim employees, Target would not accommodate his Christian religious beliefs. That’s even though–unlike the Muslim cashiers–Bundy informed Target of his beliefs before he was hired by Target Corporation. And Target assured him they would accommodate him.

Bundy is a pharmacist. It is against his religious beliefs to fill prescriptions for the “morning after” pill a/k/a “Plan B,” which is used to terminate pregnancy in the 72 hours after unprotected sex. When he was hired by Target, the retailer told him that he could refer those who wanted the drug to another pharmacy.

But since then, Target changed its tune. At the time, the drug was not available over the counter. Now, it is, and Bundy did not want to dispense it. Target insisted he provide it to over-the-counter customers. He balked. Instead of accommodating Bundy’s religious beliefs like it did with Muslims who won’t ring up pig products, Target fired him. Target’s rationale: It’s bad for business. Customers won’t put up with it, and Target will lose money.

I am not saying I agree with Bundy’s beliefs. But whether or not you agree with Bundy’s beliefs–and many Christians do not–is not the issue. Many Muslims claim they do not agree with the mostly-Somali Muslim cashiers who would not ring up pork and other pig products. In fact, in Muslim-owned gas stations all over Detroit, Muslims sell pig products–even though profiting from that is against Islamic law–to make a buck. The issue is that Target is saying “We will accommodate Muslims and their demands, but we will not do the same for Christians.”

If Target fired Bundy–and it did–it must also fire its Muslims cashiers. Or it must rehire Bundy and give him back pay. But at Target there is no equality of religious faiths. One is “more equal” than all others. And it’s Islam.

And therein lies the problem. How many customers stopped shopping at Target over the Islamic cashiers and their Sharia checkout lanes? How many continue to express their anger to Target over the Muslim indignance once it’s time to ring up? Not enough, because instead of patronizing its customers, Target kowtowed to its strident Muslim employee population and still does. Target probably lost very little in its bottom line as a result of making you wait while another cashier is found to ring up your bacon. When Muslim customers (and moreso fake “customers” generated by militant groups like CAIR) are angry, businesses never hear the end of it.

Now, Bundy is suing Target. He was hired in April 2006 and fired seven months later for his religious beliefs. Target responds that,while it values the “diversity” of its pharmacists and their religious beliefs,

We have an obligation to meet the needs of the guests we serve . . . particularly when it comes to their health care needs.

But what about the needs of the guests Target serves after they’ve been waiting in a long line, and they suddenly discover they must wait again, while an employee is found to ring up their dinner?

Is meeting a Target customer’s immediate hunger needs less important than making sure they kill all life after a night of unprotected sex?

Who’s to say? Different Target customer’s have different needs. And Target is saying one set of religious beliefs–the ones of the 19 hijackers who murdered over 3,000 Americans . . . and their fellow co-religionists who’ve murdered so very many more–are more important than another set of religious beliefs.

That’s nothing short of religious discrimination, and it violates the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964, by failing to make reasonable accommodations for Bundy’s religious beliefs. Why accomodate the Muslims’ religious beliefs and not his? Why are they more important to Target?

This isn’t the first time Target’s picking on Christians while pandering to Muslims. In 2005, it forbade the use of “Merry Christmas” by cashiers. That policy changed because customers got angry and it was covered in mainstream media outlets, like the Wall Street Journal, giving Target a black eye. But Target also banned the Salvation Army (a Christian charity) from raising money for the poor outside its stores during the holiday season. That policy remains unchanged, though Target is now selling a gift package few will buy, the proceeds of which will go to the Salvation Army.

The bottom line is that Target will accomodate Muslim beliefs no matter how extreme, but not Christian ones.

George Orwell’s prescient pronouncement lives on 52 years later in the checkout lane at Target. And Islam is the “most equal” and revered animal of them all, all because they attacked us and we must bend over to make up for . . . them attacking us?!

The more you shop at Target and keep your disapproval to yourself, the more it will go on. And get worse.

The Salvation Army and Brian Bundy, first. You, sometime soon.

Think about that when you decide where to drop your holiday–and everyday–spending cash.

Teddy Bear Blues

UK teacher jailed over teddy row

Gillian Gibbons

Britain said the incident was an ‘innocent misunderstanding’

Bishop’s reaction

A British teacher has been found guilty in Sudan of insulting religion after she allowed her primary school class to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, has been sentenced to 15 days in prison and will then be deported.

She escaped conviction for inciting hatred and showing contempt for religious beliefs, and will now appeal.

Foreign Secretary David Miliband has expressed “in the strongest terms” the UK’s concern at her detention.

The Sudanese ambassador, Omer Siddiq, was called back to the Foreign Office to explain the decision.

Officials said that during his 45-minute meeting Mr Miliband also spoke to the Sudanese acting foreign minister for 15 minutes on the telephone.

“There will be further contacts overnight and tomorrow in the search for a swift resolution of this issue,” the Foreign Office added.

I have called in the Sudanese ambassador this evening to explain the decision and to discuss next steps

Reaction to verdict

Before the meeting, Mr Miliband said he was “extremely disappointed” the charges had not been dismissed and repeated his view that it had been an “innocent misunderstanding by a dedicated teacher”.

“Our priority now is to ensure Mrs Gibbons’ welfare, and we will continue to provide consular assistance to her,” he said.

“I have called in the Sudanese ambassador this evening to explain the decision and to discuss next steps.”

Staff complaint

Officials at the Foreign Office say the mood has changed as a result of the verdict.

The prime minister, Sudanese embassy officials in London and UK Muslim organisations all expressed the hope that Mrs Gibbons would be released.

But Sudan’s top clerics had called for the full measure of the law to be used against Mrs Gibbons and labelled her actions part of a Western plot against Islam.

She could have faced up to 40 lashes if found guilty on all three charges against her.

In September, Mrs Gibbons allowed her class of primary school pupils to name the teddy bear Muhammad as part of a study of animals and their habitats.

A teddy bear on sale in Sudan

What can’t be named Muhammad?

British teacher Gillian Gibbons has been jailed for 15 days after insulting Islam’s Prophet by allowing her pupils in Sudan to name a teddy bear Muhammad. What are the rules on using the name?

The Arabic name Muhammad is now the second most popular name for baby boys in Britain, adding together its 14 different spellings in English.

Muslim families – of which there are an increasing number in the UK – often choose names which honour the Prophet or show a link to their religion in another way.

THE ANSWER

Opinion is divided

Some say Muhammad can only be given to boys, others are less strict

But is it acceptable to name a toy Muhammad? The arrest and subsequent jailing of Ms Gibbons has sparked debate in Islamic circles. As is the case in so many religious matters, the question is open to interpretation.

The court heard that she was arrested on Sunday after another member of staff at Unity High School complained to the Ministry of Education.

The BBC’s Adam Mynott, in Khartoum, said Mrs Gibbons apologised to the court for any offence she may have caused.

The school’s director, Robert Boulos, told the AP news agency: “It’s a very fair verdict, she could have had six months and lashes and a fine, and she only got 15 days and deportation.”

He said Mrs Gibbons would only serve another 10 days in prison, having already spent five in custody since her arrest.

Prosecutor general Salah Eddin Abu Zaid had said Mrs Gibbons could expect a “swift and fair trial”.

But Catherine Wolthuizen, chief executive of Fair Trials International, said Mrs Gibbons’ treatment was excessive.

She said: “It was a very speedy justice process. Although she has been found guilty of all the counts of causing offence, she has thankfully not been subjected to 40 lashes.

“Having said this, 15 days in a Sudanese prison for an innocent misunderstanding is a serious and harsh punishment indeed.”

But Adel Darwish, the political editor of The Middle East magazine, says that Muslim children – “like children everywhere” – give their pets the names of characters they liked, be it a religious figure, sports hero or pop singer.

WHO, WHAT, WHY?

Graphic

A regular part of the BBC News Magazine, Who, What, Why? aims to answer some of the questions behind the headlines

“Millions of Muslim children in Muslim nations give their dolls, pets and teddies Muslim names of the Prophet and his mother, daughters and wives.”

Gill Lusk, the associate editor of Africa Confidential and a specialist on Sudan, says the incident will have offended many in the country. As Sudan is a place where religion is never mocked or satirised, it’s “unthinkable” that a toy or pet could be given a religious name.

Taken from BBC news.

As one who taught Kindergarten in the past, I can see how this teacher let the children name the teddy bear. I can also see how we really need to know what is acceptable and not acceptable in another country. Just so glad she is not getting 40 lashes, due probably to the outrage expressed worldwide. I am also very thankful for our freedoms here in the U.S. flawed as it is, it beats oppression and 40 lashes.
