About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Canary in the Coal Mine

The Canary In The Coal Mine Of Islamic Civilization
Steven M. Warshawsky

It is often said that Jews are the canary in the coal mine of western civilization. When they start to be abused and mistreated, it is a sign that a poisonous atmosphere has developed that threatens to engulf all of society.

Well, women are the canary in the coal mine of lslamic civilization. And they are choking and dying across the Muslim world.

The most recent story, from Saudi Arabia, involves a 19-year-old woman who was kidnapped, beaten, and gang-raped by 7 men -- and then sentenced by a court to 90 lashes for the crime of being alone with a man not related to her.

This is utterly barbaric. Yet it is consistent with Islamic law (sharia) as practiced by the leading Sunni Muslim nation, the world's largest oil exporter, and America's "ally" in the Middle East. Equally revolting acts of sharia tyranny against women occur in Iran, Afghanistan, and throughout the Muslim world.

I submit that the single most important indicator of whether the Muslim world will be able to co-exist peacefully with the West is how they treat their women. So long as the Muslim world follows a religious code that reflects such a deep fear and hatred of women, it never will be able to embrace the core values and principles upon which a free, democratic society is based: the dignity of the individual, freedom of conscience, political and economic liberty, the principles of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity, representative government, and non-violent transitions of power.

When the Muslim world stops abusing and mistreating its women, we'll know they're ready for peaceful co-existence with the West. Until that day, we'd better keep our eyes open and our powder dry.

And that says it all. Thanks to American Thinker for this.
