Call to Prayer

I'm not sure how many of you know this, but even if you did, I think it's vitally important that it is talked about ad nauseum until people work up the courage to stand up to this.

Our country is in danger. Christianity is being subjected to the worst persecution in our nation's history, and now we're faced with another threat: the threat of Islam. Now, I don't have a problem with your average peace loving muslim (not too many of them however), but I do have a problem with them immigrating to my country and having the audacity to trample our religious and consitutional rights by blasting their prayers over loud speakers 5 times a day. All this after their fellow believers incinerated 3,000 of my fellow Americans.

Yesterday, the city council in a small Michigan town approved an ordinance that allows for a mosque to scream their prayers in an uknown language over a loud speaker 5 times a day, at 2 minutes a pop. The council members in favor compared the prayers to the sounds of church bell chimes. (I'm really trying to maintain a healthy blood pressure level right now.) Can you begin to imagine what it would be like to wake up in your good 'ol hometown at 6 a.m. to the sound of a man singing in some Middle Eastern tongue: Allah is great. Allah is the only god. and on and on?!?! Six in the morning waking up to the sounds of a religion that still crucifies Christians and murders their daughters when their brothers rape and impregnate them, to preserve the family's honor of course.

The lack of coverage of this story shows the absolute hypocricy of the left-leaning media. Yesterday, a headline was up on AP that said people were up in arms about a coach giving a kid a "cry baby" award. But there wasn't ONE word on this story. Not one.

Where's the ACLU? Oh, they're out tearing down another cross...a symbol that makes no noise and only seems to bother them. Can't touch the Muslims...that's not pc, though they nearly decimated our country. I'm furious (in case you didn't notice:). I have friends in Iraq right now fighting in a war against members of this religion who want to not only kill them, but revel in tearing apart the bodies of charred Americans. Unbelievable. And we let them blast their prayers throughout one of our cities!

Guys, we have got to pray. This cannot be allowed. This country cannot become Islamic. If you read the message boards talking about this story, the muslims on there are in unison: our grandchildren will be muslim...this is the future for the United States.

Not if I can help it.

Emily, Thank you for writing about this chilling development. It is hard to believe this could happen in the USA. I was so upset after reading the NYT article that I became a Dennis Prager subscriber and emailed him about it. We definitely need to intercede 24/7, as well as let our voices be heard in the political arena. This must not be allowed to happen or it very easily could sweep across our nation; all in the name of tolerance. Keep up the great writing.
Love Mutti

Ok I had to see what you were talking about in your E-mails, and maybe it would have been best if I didn't read that I might have to listen to the mosques when I get home after putting up with it for three months over here. I don't mean to sound harsh but Islam is a flippin cancer. I have a bad feeling things are going to get worse before they get better, if they get better.
