If All Muslims Are Terrorists, What About Christians? #MacArthursMusings

By A. F. James MacArthur Ph.A.L.

"Rather leave the crime of the guilty unpunished than condemn the innocent." 

~ Cicero  

This week a public hearing regarding the construction of a new mosque in Virginia was disrupted by audience members who got up shouting, declaring "all Muslims are terrorists."

If these were just the incoherent ramblings of some lone extremists, it would be frightening enough. But what's truly alarming is how many Americans genuinely feel this way. Many being simply too afraid to say so. In public.

It's as if there has never been acts of destruction and mass bloodshed brought about by Christians, the religion claimed by a majority of Americans.

The ongoing irrational, over generalized fear of Muslims of Middle Eastern decent would almost be amusing if it wasn't so disturbing. We're literally turning planes around and forcefully removing passengers, because "Middle Eastern looking" people have the audacity to do something like watch a news broadcast on their smartphone, and to many irrational petrified Americans, this appears like suspicious behavior.

See something? Say something.

Terrorizing The Globe

Fact: Christianity began in what is now called the "Middle East." But it wasn't "radicalized" until it got to Europe. Think the Crusades, etc.

The truth is, white European Christians, practicing and none practicing have gone to every continent and invaded countries, began wars, enslaved and oppressed indigenous peoples, and taken their land for themselves. No other group has done this on a more grand scale or for longer cumulative time periods.

Throughout history, and even in our times with groups like the Ku Klux Klan (domestic terrorists permitted and tolerated by U.S. governments) all sorts of evil and hatred has been perpetrated by those claiming Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

What then, do we blame and stigmatize the entire Christian world for the immense bloodshed and misery caused by those practicing their religion? It's what's being done to Muslims.

Taking the actions of some as license to discriminate against all is just looking for an excuse to justify internalized fear which manifests itself as hate.

Didn't Jesus say the greatest commandment was love?
Hating in the name of the Lord

Would The Real Terrorists Please Stand Up?

By A.F. James MacArthur Ph.A.L.

Reality Check

Of the 10 deadliest mass killings in U.S. post-9/11, 90% were by non-Muslims; 50% were committed by white men. Further, at this point not a single individual identified with responsibility for the Paris Attacks is a Syrian.

With all the irrational fear and paranoia gripping the country right now, some folk seem intent to let emotions get in the way of facts. As a country we're supposed to be better than that.

The current zeal being pushed to establish policy driven by emotional reaction, is not only bigoted and ignorant, it's downright scary.

Officials consider it showing "leadership."

In reality it's reflective of cowardice. Clearly we're no longer the home of the brave.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.

A.F. James MacArthur -- American patriot & lover of liberty.
