More crazies in the family

Just because I blocked my cousin Bobby's, Aunt Jeannette's and father's emails doesn't mean that their aren't additional wackos hiding in the woodwork.

The latest?

Subj: Fw: A must read Muslim belief

MUSLIM BELIEF

This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry (This much is true).

The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you ha ve a purpose.

The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races!!! (Quel horreur! The browns are breeding and converting! Whatever shall we do?)

Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my State prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam (According to Snopes.com there was no Imam present, just some prisoner pressed into service. So probably not a well educated guy and stupid enough to end up in the clink on top of things.) had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: 'Please, Correct me if I'm wrong,but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'

There was no disagreement with my statements and,without hesitation, he Replied, 'Non-believers!'

I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a20place in heaven. Is that correct?'

The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a Little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.'

He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'

I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul Commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'

The Imam was speechless!

I continued, 'I also have problem with being your friend when you and your Brother Clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:

Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be there with me?'

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame. Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the Diversification' training Seminar were not happy with Rick's way of dealing with the Islamic Imam , and exposing the truth about the Muslims' beliefs.

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. To elect the President! I think everyone in the U.S. And Canada should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely=2 0publicized,unless each of us send this along. This is your chance to make adifference...

Soon, I will have no contact with the relatives left!

I love that they make know effort to even begin to understand what Islam is about. First off, Muslims don't ALL believe that all non-believers should be put to the sword. Are there radicals that do? Yes, but then the guy who blew up bombs at the Olympics in Atlanta was a radical Christian. Do you want to be judge by that asshole?

Second off, while Christians were torturing Muslims, Jews, homosexuals, Protestants and learned women (or as the Church preferred to refer to them, Witches) in Spain and other countries in Europe under the guise of the Inquisition, Muslim cities peacefully allowed non-believers to live in separate quarters of their cities. This included Jews and Christians who were consider "People of the Book" as the Muslims claim both the Old and New Testement of the Bible as part of their religious heritage.

Oh, and I wonder what Mr. Mathes unleashed on the Catholics? Did he prove that we are baby-eating papists like so many holier-than-thou "Christians" believe?

So folks, you can take your ignorance and your prejudice and peddle your bullshit elsewhere.

So, unfortunately, I will be blocking Tonette now too.

OMG- that email is hilarious.

It should have ended as most glurgs do:

"For you see, Jesus blahdeblahblah"

It's always the "For you see..." that gets me laughing.

and how can a religion grow per capita?

I have no idea. I am baffled by many of my family's beliefs. Not knowing what words mean is just icing on the cake.

I got this today from my inlaws. I surfed onto your blog looking for a snopes article on this email.

We are always getting stuff like this from them. Ohhhh the Muslims are coming... Ohhhh the Atheists are coming (which is funny to me because i am one. My husband is more agnostic.. they don't know...they just know I'm more of a libertarian politically. haha). Ohhh the liberals are going to mess up the country. ahhhhh!!!
