From Jeffrey Wright:
Islam means “Submit” and cannot tolerate any religion to exist independently. The “People of the book” (Jews, Christians” must also submit to Islam, in the form of dhimmitude, and pay the “jizya” (Think mafia protection money, which protects you from harm, by them) and then there will supposedly be “peace”. The command for all to submit to Islam comes directly from Allah. He demands this be a muslim world. Period. No man is above the law of Allah, all human made laws are secondary.
Given those facts, perhaps we will look at those ridiculously smug “Coexistence” designs and see them as the politically correct charades they are. Those who do not submit to Islam are infidels. Allah demands that ALL his creation covert, submit or die. Infidels remain ignorant at our own peril.
Know Islam, by it’s very own words.
Few historians know of the heartwarming friendship between French Reformation theologian John Calvin and English political philosopher Thomas Hobbes, the latter of whom may or may not have been real, considering he was not even born yet.
The perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for Presbyterian in your life.
Don Salyards compares the recent Haiti earthquake with the one in Gujarat, India in 2001. An excerpt:
Like in Gujarat, buildings in Haiti were poorly-designed concrete structures that simply “pan caked” down, crushing most of the inhabitants. On my hard drive I’ve got photos taken by some of my friends who quickly traveled to assist survivors of the Indian quake; photos of little kids’ hands sticking out of concrete slabs, mothers crushed with their babies; all of which look resoundingly similar to the images coming in from Haiti. Those photos are heartbreaking.
No country deserves an earthquake. Statements by Christian Ayatollah Pat Robinson to the effect that the Haitians “swore a pact to the devil” and are being punished by God are neither useful nor responsible. I’ve never been to Haiti, but I’ve spent weeks and weeks in Gujarat. The Guajarati’s are predominantly Hindu. I have lived, eaten, and worshiped with them. I know firsthand that God loves them as much as he loves any people on this earth, and he loves the Haitians as well. Natural disasters are a part of the natural order. Like floods, hurricanes, and tornados, earthquakes kill some people and spare others; there is no grand plan as to who dies and who survives.
From their HFC Editorial Style Guide:
So evidently BC and AD are a big no-no with the NPS. They never say why. But this is what they say at the beginning of their style guide:
References often disagree—that is why style guides exist—and questions of style must be decided with the public foremost in mind. This is the audience for whom National Park Service public media are produced, not scholars, historians, scientists, or bureaucrats. It is important that the editorial style used throughout your publication, exhibit, web page, podcast, audiovisual production, or other media be consistent.
Yeah, you and your friends and everybody you know uses BCE and CE, right? Sheesh . .
