Now that all things and paper cuts Islam are major news–because we must show our concern for the religion of mass murder and 19 hijackers–I doubt you don’t know that today is Eid Al-Fitr, the Islamic festival marking the end of Ramadan.
Stephen Prothero: PC BU Prof Worried That Americans Won’t Accept Islam
And to that end, USA Today has a half-page op-ed with the chutzpah-dik title, “Will Americans Accept Islam?“ It’s written by Stephen Prothero, a religion professor at Boston University, and a great example of the mindless, West-hating, Islamo-apologist profs that are reprogramming America’s kids from ivory towers.
USA Today subtitles this baloney, “Illuminating the National Conversation.” PUH-LEEZE.
Uh, here are some better questions which you’ll never see on the pages of McPaper, questions to which we already know the answer:
* Will Islam Accept Americans?
* Will Islam Accept America?
* Will Muslims Accept America?
* Will Islam Accept Christianity?
* Will Islam Accept Judaism?
* Will Islam Accept the West?
* Will Islam Accept Zoroastrianism and the Ba’hai Faith (two religions that have been persecuted and driven out of Islamic countries, a la Judaism and Christianity)?
The answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO. So, why should we care if Americans will accept Islam? The other questions–which wimpy Americans slink away from–are far more important. And they will decide the long-term future of our country and how we should protect it.
Sadly, we won’t ask those questions. At our own peril.
