Merry Christmas to My Christian Friends & Readers

By Debbie Schlussel

To all of my Christian Readers & Friends, I wish you a very merry Christmas. I hope you are enjoying the holiday and that yours is full of family, good food, and fun.


Even though I believe very strongly in my own religion, I am thankful that, for now, America’s strong Christian tradition remains because it means that, with G-d’s help, I can continue to practice my religion freely. As I’ve said so many times before on this site, even though I do not believe in Christ, I do believe that America has resisted becoming a Muslim nation thus far because of its strong Christian heritage and the fact that the majority of Americans still identify as Christians. Look to Europe, and you’ll see why every single country there is moving toward becoming an Islamic state. Yes, a good part of it is because of immigration and birthrate problems that face America as well. And because of the welfare state for these immigrants and multiple births, as well as an orthodoxy of multiculturalism. But, ultimately, it’s because Europe has lost its Christian faith and more and more are either unaffiliated or atheist. We are experiencing that problem in the States as well, but it’s to a far lesser, much slower degree. As I always say, atheists and lapsed Christians are future Muslims, ripe for the picking.

While Jews were an active part of every step of American history, from its founding to all of its battles (we fought in every one, including the Revolutionary War–American history is inextricably part of Jewish history and vice versa), and America is really a Judeo-Christian country, for all intents and purposes, it is a Christian nation (unless we continue to do nothing about the ever-increasing encroachment by Islam on our shores). And that’s why America’s still around and as we know it, though that could change and in the long-term demographics, it looks like it will change because we’ve done nothing to stop that. Yes, sadly, we have our fair share of wimpitude and “Bending Over Syndrome” and are only a few decades behind Europe, as more and more Americans become less involved with their Christian faith and more concerned with the Kartrashians, the winner of “The Voice,” and when Brad Pitt and Palestina Jolie will get married and adopt another Muslim baby.

But so long as we are a Christian nation–which continues to be based on its Judeo-Christian roots–and haven’t fallen to Islam in the way Europe has via political correctness/multi-culturalism and a vast welfare state with uber-generosity toward illegal aliens (and again, we are doing that as well, unfortunately), I will be safe to be a Jew and will be able to freely practice my religion, G-d willing.

Yes, the majority of Americans are still Christians, but this number is shrinking and even many of those who identify as Christian are Christians in name only and don’t practice much of anything. The religion that is fast growing here–through immigration (legal and illegal), women-as-baby-factories mass births, and brainwashing conversions-is Islam.

And then there are their friends in the terrorists’ lobbies, er, “civil liberties” groups. They are also the enemy of Christmas, Christianity, and my faith of Judaism. While some try to erase references to Christmas in America–whether in commerce or in education, whether in Hollywood or in trying to decimate Nativity scenes at the local city hall lawn–I am not among them. I do not share your religion nor some of your religious beliefs, but I celebrate that you celebrate. Because the day that Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Al-Adha are national holidays (and they are holidays in several American school districts and factories already) is the end of days or the precursor to them. At least, it’s the end of days for you and me to be able to live in peace. And, again, we are well on our way there. That may be sooner than you think–in a few generations, if we continue to do nothing about Muslims seeping into our country and expanding their stronghold.


While we have that strong Christian background that is an essential part of America’s fabric and history, Christian America hasn’t had the necessary resistance to Islamic immigration that we need and the fight against Muslims’ refusal to be absorbed in American culture that is required to preserve our freedoms and our American way of life. Christian America has bent over backward–and forward–to the many unreasonable, unAmerican demands put forth on our society by Muslims. In that, many churches and Christian organizations–especially the leftist ones such as the Presbyterian Church of the United States of Ameica (PCUSA) and so on–have failed and their celebration of Christmas today is phony and hollow. They have maintained their status quo–or worse, engaged in this multi-cultural “interfaith” dialogue to lend legitimacy to the supporters and agents of Islamic terrorism and tyranny. And they aren’t working on sustaining their faith and its continued existence in America–which must include resistance to Islamic tyranny on our own shores–for future generations.

That’s something to think about as you marvel over your Christmas tree and open your presents. Will your great-great-grandchildren and their children be able to do the same? Will their great-great-grandchildren be forced to say Midnight Mass in a basement hiding from the Mukhabarat (“secret police) and Mutaween (“Muslim religious police)? You are celebrating the birth of Christ today, but in future tomorrows, your progeny may all be forced to “celebrate” Ramadan and the Eids because we did not do enough to stop from becoming Eurabia, American Annex, or as I call it, “Islamerica.” Your descendants may be forced to hide under hijabs and niqabs and be oppressed for their faith and religious practice, just as mine were in every single Muslim nation in which they lived throughout history, just as the dwindling Christian populations are in every single Muslim nation in which they lived and have now been forced to leave or lose their lives. Christianity is under attack all over the Muslim world. If you think the Muslims in America are different in that respect, you simply aren’t thinking at all. They are no different than their fellow co-religionists, except that they have not yet reached critical mass here. But they are getting there. And in the long run, if we do nothing, the result will be the same here as it is in the Muslim world and every European country well on its way to becoming the Muslim world.

In Bethlehem, the birthplace of Christ, three out of every four residents are Muslims and that rate is growing. The Muslim call to prayer, not prayers at the Church of the Nativity, is the loudest sound. But it is also now the loudest sound in Hamtramck, Michigan, once a stronghold of Catholics. Christians and Christianity in Bethlehem are merely a business, a customer base for Muslims to make money off of. They are a means to an end for the Muslim Palestinian Authority which rules the place and is alternately feuding with and trying to merge with HAMAS. If you think that will never be the case in America, think again. As I always tell you, you and I won’t see it. But it could very well be the case in America in future generations as our Muslim population swells and non-Muslim marriages and birthrates continue their decline.

For me, a strong Christian America is a strong America where religious Jews like me can celebrate our religion, our Sabbath, and our holidays, just as it enables you to celebrate Christmas today. Let’s keep America that way not just for us, but for future generations. We must do that if we want our faiths, our people, and our country to survive into the future.

Again, I wish you a wonderful holiday, full of joy, family and loved ones, friends, good health, food and drink and other sustenance, warmth, and shelter. And even though I do not celebrate your holiday, I appreciate the gift you give me every day: your readership (and comments and tips, too), your support, and your camaraderie in the marketplace of ideas. And most important, our common goal and aim for the survival of Western civilization, of which the Judeo-Christian ethos is the backbone.

Thank you and, again, Merry Christmas.

    Please move to an Islamic country, like, say, Saudi— and enjoy your freedom to build a church there! (Sarc)

    Chamberlain thought Hitler could be negotiated with in 1938, too. That amazes us in retrospect. Future generations, if they are still free, will look at you, Mr. B, as an idiot.

    Would you like to discuss a former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem:

    We could also discuss how Indonesian Muslims backed the Japanese Occupation of Indonesia during World War II, to the consternation of the Nationalists.

    Does your demonic grin cover those things?

(Written and posted late last night – – – Christmas Eve)

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

FINALLY, after all these years, tonight, I really got to be Santa Claus!

For months now, I’ve been growing my whiskers, so they’re nice and long and bushy, plus my hair got really long, too, which was an aggravation, because that hair keeps falling down in front of my eyes, kind of like a sheepdog, huh?

A while back, I searched the Internet, and ordered a pair of red sweat pants and a really large red hoodie.

Then, earlier this evening, I went to our Navy Exchange mini-store and bought some last minute goodies to give as gifts.

Boy, oh boy, oh boy, but, you should have SEEN me!

I put on the red sweat pants, and tucked them into my black suede leather moccasin boots.

I pinned my military ribbon rack and my silver wings to the chest of my red hoodie, put the POW/MIA memorial bracelet on my wrist, and strapped on my wide Scottish military belt.

Being FAT, the belt fit really tight, indeed, tight enough that I could take my strap of jingle bells off the wall, and securely tuck them under my belt.

Then, I put on my Santa Claus cap, picked up the gifts, grabbed the large wooden walking stick, and headed out the door.

Boy, the effect was PERFECT!

With every step I took, and every movement of my body, those bells JINGLED!!!

I was surprised that only two people saw me, but I reckon most folks are in bed or watching a Christmas movie on television.

As might be expected, walking was difficult and painful, but I didn’t have too far to go.

Undetected, I successfully delivered the gifts and returned to my room.

Being dressed up like Santa Claus, I had thought I might take my guitar downstairs and sing Christmas carols.

I had also thought I’d wear that Santa Claus outfit tomorrow when I go to chow in the mess hall.

But, no, I ain’t gonna do no such thing.

That Santa Claus outfit is – – – HOT!!!

Southern Mississippi on the Gulf Coast is – – – HOT!!!

Those two things just don’t go well together, especially if you’re old and fat, because being fat makes you even hotter.

Maybe I should buy a really humongous red polo shirt?

I wish you folks could have seen me.

I wish there’d been some young’uns that saw me.

It would have made their day!

Yep, it would have made MY day, too, especially if I’d thought beforehand to fill my pockets with candy, which I didn’t.

I need to be somewhere cold, with lots of snow, to be able to comfortably wear that there Santa Claus outfit, huh?

Anyway, here’s something special for you – – – ,


By way of explanation, this here place where I’m living is Southern Mississippi on the Gulf Coast.

The prevailing culture in this area is Creole and Cajun, and yes, we have bayous and alligators all over the place, and our mess hall mostly serves us meals consisting of shrimp and rice, with all its variations, plus plenty of gumbo.

It’s just like that movie, “FORREST GUMP”, which is one of my favorites, and which I bought a DVD of, so I could watch it again and again.

Notice on the video of “A CAJUN NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS”, that there’s a tornado warning.

That video was posted in 2009.

Guess what?

This is 2012, and TONIGHT, we have a tornado warning!

Ain’t that something?

Well, by gosh, by golly, – – – ,

Merry Christmas to all of the Christian readers and all others who celebrate the Holiday here on this site.

It’s a shame. A shame this stellar piece won’t receive the massive circulation it rates.

The reach out of goodwill on the one hand and prescient clarion call on the other leave nothing of significance to be added.

Nothing but a “thank you, Debbie.” Thanks for putting to use your considerable gift of clear sight and the verbalization of it. You speak for so many of us, not so blessed.

    Beautifully stated! You are right on target with your comment. (Can we still say “On target?”) Unfortunately, multiculturalism will be the fifth column that undermines our country. Multiculturalism = Islamo/fascism. The thrust of this undermining will be aimed at our grandchildren and great grandchildren through the indoctrination they receive at the government/unionized schools. Eventually, children will be bringing home islamic symbols from cut out paper instead of Christian crosses, Stars of David, etc. Muslim “Holidays” will be soon appearing on all calendars – and celebrated throughout our country. I am waiting for the first burka clad woman “News reader” to appear on CNN. We are being led down the primrose path by the Quislings in our government, our military, our schools and throughout the state run media. News is non-existent. It has been replaced by censorship, the “Non-reporting” of events that don’t fit the template of those who wish to control us and the continual propagandizing we see and hear, 24/7. The most frightening words I hear uttered in our country today are, “It can’t happen here.” Sadly, It has already begun. We must find a cure for the fatal, nation-wide disease affecting our body politic…….APATHY. Pray for our nation…..while we still can.

Miss Schlussel, Et Ali:

I shall always treasure the memory of my visit to Israel, and how nice the Jews treated me.

It was all by accident, too, for I didn’t know until someone told me, that I was the ONLY Christian on an all-Jewish guided tour!

Boy, oh boy, oh boy, but did I have fun, for it was just like being in that movie, “EXODUS”, which I love so much.

When the Jews would sing their campfire songs, I’d try to imitate their words and sing along, even though, in reality, I was probably murdering the language.

But, boy, those Jews were so tolerant of my clumsy ignorance, and would patiently explain things to me.

Yes, sirree, they were VERY nice and generous with me, and I will ALWAYS remember that!

Thank you, and – – –

Merry Christmas to you Debbie, but DS I happen to respectfully disagree with you between the lines in this piece where you said that atheist and laspe christians are future muslims. From what I’ve known and exprience is that a good majority of atheist/agnostics, etc. are anti-islam and NO fan of any faiths being practiced, and since I sorta identify myself as a “theist-christian”, I to til a point think that all religions are full of it, and it’s leaders on some occasions are in it for the profit who wants our money (that’s why I’m anti-Orangized Religion, NOT anti-religion).

In any event, IMO, countries with secular governments such as ours and other countries in the west are stable, thriving, etc., whereas countries with dogmatic religious laws (ie, the middle east and southeast asia) there WAY behind the 8-ball, backwards, no freedoms, no liberty, persecutions, fascist, etc.

And as for our muslim pals, since a good number of them here don’t want to assimilate to our culture, lifestyles, etc., I advise them to leave here and go back to the crapistan nation they originiated from. To me, there the real “xenophobes” (no you leftists, xenophobia doesn’t mean your anti-multiculturalism) by them not adapting to our lifestyles, laws, etc. DS, I know your ancestors came to this country from Europe, they immediately abandoned the “old-worlds” values and adapted to US lifestyles, values, etc., samething with my relatives when they came to this country from the West Indies, they assimilated to US laws, lifestyles, etc., rather then holding onto the values from the islands they came from in the West Indies!

    Sean? Your grammar is so horrible that it is quite distorts your comments. It makes for difficult reading. I’m writing this to you just to be helpful. No personal offence. I hope you can accept this in goodwill.

    You use YOUR where you mean you’re over and over again. It’s terrible.

    You use “there” when you should say THEIR. “their” is possesive.

    Also you use there when you mean to say “they are”. When you contract “They are” you write “they’re”, not there. Huge difference.

Stuff happens man, and I’ve read some of you’re comments over the last number of weeks, and you’ve made a few to some grammer mistakes here and there, just saying!

Miss Schlussel, Et Alii:

Another really nice thing that Jews in America are known for is volunteering to work on Christmas Day so Christian employees can be with their families.

I also remember reading a newspaper article about how American Jews have a traditional observance on Christmas Day, i.e., they like to go to the movie theater!

Yes, Jews fought in every American conflict, from the very beginning, but most folks don’t know that Jews also served in the Confederate Army, Jews in Charleston, South Carolina raised funds for the Confederacy, and the Secretary of State for the Confederate States of America was Jewish.

Yeah, well, I’m an unapologetic, unreconstructed Rebel, with a Confederate ancestor, so I enjoy telling Jewish “liberals” about that bit of history.

Thank you.

      It was a Sephardic Jew, Judah Benjamin, born and raised in Charleston, SC who almost singlehandedly financed the War of Northern Aggression. He became Sec. of State for the CSA and when Jefferson Davis was arrested, acted in his place.

      Zionism – The national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. Has come to include the development of the State of Israel and the protection of the Jewish nation in Israel.

    Sir. You are obviously a student of history as I am…..and there aren’t many of us left. Who reads that “Old stuff” today? I assure you, that if you went out and did a man in the street interview asking folks to name one of their two Senators, two of the nine Supreme Court justices, etc, only one in a hundred would know the answers. HOWEVER, if you asked who was the winner of Dancing With the Stars, or any other “Bread an Circuses” TV show, a high opercentage of folks would know the answer. A sad commentary on society. “Those who forget history, etc, etc, “

    herbster on December 26, 2012 at 10:22 am

I’m not convinced by the atheists become muzzies and not the Christians, Debbie, any evidence? It was atheist Switzerland that banned the minarets! The Christian theocracy in Europe, England and the UK is the most Islamopandering.

In the US conservattives convert to Islam because they think Christianity, isn’t conservative enough.

There’s an interesting documentary on Google, Turning Muslim in Texas, about a number of Southern Baptists converting to Islam, often because they don’t think Christianity is conservative enough.

Samuel on December 25, 2012 at 4:44 pm


    Once atheists reject the truth, they become vulnerable to believing all kinds of lies. That’s where Islam comes in …

    As goes, so goes ... on December 25, 2012 at 11:03 pm

Here is the TV documentary about Texan Baptists converting to Islam,

Isn’t suhaibb webb one of them?

Turning Muslim in Texas [FULL VIDEO] MUST SEE!!!

I’d reevaluate your views, Debbie, I see atheists as an ally. There is no way they’d let Islam grow in America.

Recall it was the atheist Geert Wilders brave enough to fight Islamic cultural practices, that’s the only way you get rid of this threat. Expel them, if not, ban Islam, if not, make life uncomfortable.

Here is another suggestion, maybe Jews should propagate Judaism, after all Islam is a poor copy of Judaism, if these people think Christianity isn’t conservative enough, they should consider becoming Noahides, or convert to Judaism.

Samuel on December 25, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    I don’t know what is restraining God’s judgment, but a majority just voted a corrupt liar back into office that supports sodomy. Judgment is eminent or God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology …

    I do believe this world is on the fast track to worldwide Muslim dictatorship. Beheadings will be the call of the day and there will be no hiding … Christianity is weak and compromising, unable to stop the inevitable.

    I expect earth shattering changes sometime in 2014.

    As goes, so goes ... on December 25, 2012 at 10:37 pm

And a Merry Christmas to you,Ms. Schlussel!

sam on December 25, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Sam, The Muslims may believe that Jesus was/is a prophet of G-d. However, if you’ve read the rants of Osama bin Laden, he, among most of his followers, condemn, in the strongest language possible, “The Crusades”, a.k.a. CHRISTIANS. In fact, bin Laden explained that, in part, one of the reasons that he ordered the massacre on 9/11/2001 was the fact that “The Crusades” kicked the Moslems out of Spain, a long, long time ago.

    Neils60 on December 25, 2012 at 8:22 pm

      My surprise was that debbie didn’t believe in jesus…as god or even as a prophet of God which the muslims do believe he was a prophet of God…as far as bin laden..I saw muslims hawking t shirts and coffee mugs in manhattan celebrating his death….of 1.6 billion muslims bin laden maybe had 5000 followers….as 9/11 truther families now believe 9/11 was a false flag operation so too do muslims..thanx

Thank you, Debbie for the Merry Christmas greeting, and for all that you do all year keeping us informed and helping keep evil at bay. May G_D bless you and keep you happy and safe. I don’t normally spell the name of our Lord the way I did in that sentence, but I don’t want to offend or upset anyone when I am trying to show respect. One thing I noticed this year, was that people, especially in stores I went to, really lit up when I wished them a “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”.

RT on December 25, 2012 at 8:11 pm


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! Health and happiness in the coming new year. Thanks for all the past articles which exposed the threats that face our society. Trouble is that very few Americans see the threat as it is masked and promoted as the” Multiculterial” deception.

Peter on December 25, 2012 at 8:53 pm

The South will be the last bastion of hope for a Christian society. The rest of the nation has a lot of splaining to do to the Maker and Creator and his Blessed Mother.

ConfederateSouth on December 25, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Forget that part about “the blessed mother”. She is not the ‘mother’ to God. Since Jesus IS GOD, Mary was mother ONLY to His HUMAN BODY. SHE IS NOT THE MOTHER OF GOD!!!!! Never forget that!!!

    Mary was just a simple human being and a sinner. She never had any “deity” about her whatsoever! NOTHING!!! Her human body rotted in the ground just like the billions of human bodies before and after her. Her soul went to Heaven to be with Jesus her SAVIOR. If she had not accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, then she would be burning in hell FOREVER. This is just plain and simple Bible doctrine. The Catholic religion and Pope religion does not teach nor believe that Mary was a human sinner just like every human being that has ever lived. No where in the Bible is anyone ever told to WORSHIP MARY. That is a false teaching of the Catholic church. This is why their Popes did so much killing and butchering of humans whenever they were in power. Need I teach you more? This will suffice for now. – AMEN!!

Infidel on December 25, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I am trying to say … This isn’t generations away, eg great grandchildren. It is THIS GENERATION. It is appropriate. After all, they have it coming. Give them what they voted for … The majority in this country voted a Muslim back into the Whitehouse. Guess what … The gig is up.

As goes, so goes ... on December 25, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Sam, the Muslim belief in Isa is nothing remotely even close to the original Jesus. The Muslim belief is that along w/ the Mahdi, Isa will come and at swordpoint, convert all Christians to Islam, or kill them.

Which begs the question – why have Isa do that, when Mohammed did that in Arabia (to Jews and Pagans, as well as Christians as well) so successfully?

At any rate, Sam, while I’m neither a Christian nor a Jew, most Christians would be a lot more comfortable w/ someone not believing in Jesus at all, as opposed to believing in the perverted Muslim Isa. At least, those who don’t believe in Jesus ain’t automatically figuring out ways to wipe Christianity out of anywhere, which is unfortunately not the case w/ you Mohammedans.

Infidel on December 25, 2012 at 11:10 pm

Thanks, JRM for the input.

And with all due respect Debbie Schlussel, Islam is not atheism. And given the choice of whether to follow Muhammad or the Easter Bunny, the atheists would prefer following the latter.

After all, there never was a Muhammad, was there.

Happy Festivus.

The Reverend Jacques on December 25, 2012 at 11:59 pm

What a kind interfaith greeting. Your love for the Christians is returned by this one. What do you think of those Christians who are embracing their Judeo heritage as part of their Christian experience? I often come to your site to get a Jewish perspective on current events. I am blessed to read about your family and their American experience. The Jewish people are our brothers and sisters. Persecution of the Jews is persecution of God’s children.

Jonah on December 26, 2012 at 12:39 am

“Christ” = “Messiah” If you say you don’t believe in “Christ” you are saying you don’t believe in “Messiah,” whomever he is. If you’re Jewish, say you don’t believe in Jesus, JC, Hesus, the J-man whatever you choose to call him but don’t say “I don’t believe in ‘Christ.” That wasn’t the man’s last name. Jews DO believe in a coming Messiah (Moshiach) and Orthodox Jews believe this is a man, not an era or idea.

Italkit on December 26, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Amen sir!!!

    Last word on December 26, 2012 at 12:39 pm

It would be good if an Atheist considered how Muslims actually feel about Atheism:

It is not very pretty. In fact, that viewpoint in Islam’s eyes is worse than being a Christian, Jew, or Polytheist. There is not even a question about Dhimmitude for such people. Non-existence is what will be handed to those without belief by Islam. Dhimmitude is the road to oblivion for non-Muslims. For Atheists, Oblivion is as immediate as is practible.

Also, why should a Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, or Jew make common cause with an Atheist? Atheists tend to land on the far left of the political spectrum where any open profession of religious belief is deemed to be reactionary and threatening. Regimes past and present that have declared themselves to be militantly Atheistic and Materialist have been Marxist. China and the former Soviet Union were the biggest ones. At best, such governments marginalized and harassed religious believers. At worst, such Marxist states obliterated any form of religious expression that was not under direct state control. That is currently what happens in China today. In Cuba, the various approved faiths are allowed a measure of independence from the state, but are kept on a very short tether. Those historic and current examples of Atheism in power leave most non-Atheists wary. Living under the heel of Scientific Socialism or Sharia is really no choice at all. It is a choice between cyanide or hemlock, which is the rapid or slower death choice. Why align with people who are really not much different than your enemy? The enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend. The West discovered this to their horror in the aftermath of the Second World War. Joseph Stalin was not really an ally, but an opportunist who would have been pleased to remain an axis power if the Third Reich had not invaded the Soviet Union. In fact, Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini had been role models for Nationalist Socialists, including Adolf Hitler himself.

    Ah, you’ve bought into that myth about “radical Leftist atheists.” The truth is most libertarians of the Right are, if not atheists, then certainly skeptics. Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard, Ludwig Von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Frank Knight, Milton Friedman, Robert Bradford, Samuel Konkin, Robert Nozick, George Smith, Frank Chodorov, John Hospers — not a single religious believer among these Rightist liberatarians. If they were believers, they must have kept it a good secret. Yes, some atheists are on the Left. But then, a lot of church clergy and laymen also are well on the Left. (Listen to some Methodist or Lutheran sermons of late, and you’ll see what I mean.)

    Not every skeptic is an atheist. There also are deists, agnostics and freethinkers, which are not synonymous. Incidentally, I’m a deist of the Right. And I don’t like Islam at all.

DS – thank you for the Christmas wishes.

It makes me sad believing you are spot on.

I was fortunate to visit Israel and the church in Bethlehem. Also, my Polish/Catholic grandparents, that lived in Hamtramck, are rolling over in their graves.

Too many people do not care and progressively letting Islam take over.

God bless you Debbie.
I wish every American could read and understand this.
It will be forwarded to all my contacts.
I admire you greatly.

Well, at least we still call it Christmas. But in a decade or so, there will be tremendous pressure from the PC police to call it Winter’s Day, or something like that, just as Thanksgiving is more and more being called Native American Day, and virtually all our other holidays except Labor Day, which is already politically correct, are being transformed into leftist festivals of one type or another.

It is nauseating to hear over and over again, stale songs such as Sleigh Ride, Baby It’s Cold Outside, or other secular songs. You can listen to ‘holiday music’ for hours on end without realizing it has anything to do with Christmas. Even Deck the Halls is experiencing a precarious existence these days.

Atheists becoming Muslims? Well, we do know that a disproportionate number of atheists are people of the left, and such people are very, very sympathetic to the poor, discriminated-against, Muslims. The common thread between atheists and Muslims is, in general, hatred for the Western cultural tradition. There will probably be some type of intermediate step such as Islam Light for some of these people, and the more politically astute Muslims will support baby steps towards rejection of the Western tradition, and support for Islam in small ways such as school curricula, etc. And Islam will become conflated in their minds with hatred of Western values. So the first step has already been taken. Look at Roger Garaudy in France. There will be others.

Thank you so much for your well wishes! I so appreciate reading your insights and have mirrored some of them from time to time on my blogs.
Your insights on why a strong Christian America is important to the country and really the world was well written and thought out. I wish more of my Christian brothers and sisters understood it more clearly. The fact that their is even a Christian “left” boggles the mind if not for the fact that Christ warned us:
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”
Those of us who understand both the Tanakh and the New Testament understand that Israel is still the apple of G*ds eye and has a plan and destiny for her. We would do well to bless and not curse Israel as I fear the wicked Obama regime is more likely than not to do the latter, even and especially if it is behind Israel’s back.
Thank you again for your warm wishes, please accept mine in return as well. Many blessings to you and yours Debbie.

A professor from Dartmouth U recently did a count of the number of people killed in the bible vs the quran…his total…1,888,000…killed in bible vs less than 1000 killed in the quran….he also did a violent verse count..his total 861 violent verses in the bible vs 94 in the quran….thanx

sam on December 26, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Oh, such a cute little equivocation. But, what does it have to do with anything? The point is what Muslims are doing, not what their book is saying. The book thing is the red herring here. Maybe when they’re shooting at you, blowing you up, stoning your wife or raping your daughter, you can read about how peaceful they are and take comfort in the fact that the Bible has more violent verses.

    Sam? Did it occur to you that this “professor from Dartmouth” could be a terrible leftist LIAR??? Sounds like a bad joke to me!!!! Have you ever seen an honest professor??? LOL

    Poor little satan worshipper sam. Let’s leave aside the Dartmouth liar’s literal claim and look for the takiyah. First, “the bible” is a huge book, however it is defined. So, the relevant measure adjusts for this. Care to do so? Second, the Koran is not the sum of canonical Islam. Care to authoritative bios of Mo and the volumes of authoritative hadiths?

    All Muslim life isn’t worth that of a single puppy.

    Sam sam sam..
    120 million Africans
    80 million Hindus
    20 million Buddists
    60 million Christians

    No harm? Looks pretty harmful to me.
    We have not played cowboys n muslims yet, the west has been asleep at the wheel. Not to worry though we are waking up and when they do there will nit be a mosque left standing or a mullah left breathing. Go back to dooncoonistan while you can.

    Canadian Steve on December 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Darn it, Debbie, you left out us infidels, kuffars and heretics. I’m so offended. Not. Hey, what is a “grand mufti” anyway? Sounds like something you buy at the bakery or Starbucks …

Pray Hard on December 26, 2012 at 11:22 am

This is the beautyof this society. We don’t have to believe in eachothers religion. But we remain committed to civility in dealing with each other. I am a Coptic Christian and I don’t hate you or any other Jew for being a jew.
