Ignorance and Lies about Religion

In his speech, Obama said “ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. ”

This sentence is wrought with lies and falsehoods.  First of all, the first two letters in their acronym, and currently their name of themselves is ISLAMIC STATE.   I think he was trying to say that ISIL is not controlled by Islam, but is using the name without the cooperation of the people who belong to the religion.  He so overstated the point that he lied.  His second sentence is even more shocking:  “No religion condones the killing of innocents?”  Really? History is riddled with examples making this entirely untrue.   The Bible mentions many times ‘walking his son through the fire’ and the like, which is slaughter of innocent children.  Demons desire destruction of all of God’s creation, as illustrated by them running the pigs over the cliff after Jesus cast them out.  If you want more examples http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_sacrifice .  In fact, even in Judaism, God on multiple occasions instructed the Jews to utterly destroy all life in communities that had forsaken Him.   It is difficult for us to see this as just, but who are we to argue with the God of the universe?  Back to this particular case, Islam fundamentalists obey the Koran, and whether out of context or not, the Koran gives instruction to kill the infidels.   Whether it be true Islam (which Christianity views as doctrine of demons to begin with), or whether your view is that Satan has corrupted this otherwise ‘peaceful’ religion, there is no mistaking that ISIL/ISIS/Islamic-State is PART of Islam.  Stop lying about religions, and trying to make excuses for the Islamic nations around the world who refuse to denounce ISIS.  Already, Germany and other European nations are outlawing support for this group.  It is only a matter of time before the world begins crusades not seen since responding to the Ottomans.  Taking no response but talking, like Prime Minister Chamberlain, will only encourage more to join the modern-day-nazi-party called ISIS.  Thankfully we, the USA, are not doing absolutely nothing.  However, denying the truth about ISIS, and covering up the history of religion, will not help anything.

Santayana was right. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”
