What Do You Think About This?

Mustang of Social Sense, one of the great people that I have met through my blog, posted a disturbing video of a priest being persecuted in Finland for calling a terrorist, well, a terrorist.

Visit the post here if you haven't already and then read this article and tell me what you think.

U.S. Ambassador to Resign After Criticism Over Focus on Abortion, Faith

His assertion is that we are heading the way of Finland, which I do agree with. My question though is, are we closer than we think? At least under the Obama Administration.

The administration, along with liberals across the country from the federal government on down to local school districts, are becoming increasingly more hostile to Christianity and it's holidays and more and more tolerant of Islam.

I am not against tolerance, I think a civilized society should practice it.

This "tolerance" though has turned into a case of political correctness killing us. Official America is tolerant of Islam to the extent of turning a blind eye to it's terroristic actions inside our own borders. We are not actively and intently pursuing and investigating organizations and schools that are openly advocating violence against Americans for fear of offending them.

Take the Fort Hood shooting as one easy example. There were so many warning signs about Nidal Malik Hasan man who would eventually open fire on the base, killing 13 people and wounding 29, that were ignored in the name of political correctness.

The man had a history of being unstable and spoke publicly about suicide bombings. He had ties to radical Islamic Imam Anwar al-Awlaki. In one of 18 e-mails to al-Awlaki that the FBI had intercepted Hasan wrote "I can't wait to join you" in the afterlife.

We have US Congressmen contemplating apologizing for the actions of one lunatic pastor in Florida who burned a Koran.

Any college that positions itself as Christian centered and would prefer only like-minded students is held up for ridicule and faces scrutiny from the government for discrimination yet we have radical Islamic schools here in the US teaching hatred of America.

The same administration that is forcing out this Ambassador has a Muslim Affairs Coordinator and the Director of NASA, appointed by Obama, has publicly stated that NASA's new mission is Muslim outreach.

Finally, as Mustang pointed out, we are letting a group build a victory mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Towers.

So, back to the original question. Are we closer than we think to what Finland is doing?

Some years ago, Robert Spencer stated that the United States is 50 years behind Europe in dhimmitude.

He has revised that span of time now -- to fewer years.

I don’t agree with political correctness, but I understand how people use it to cow others into silence and acceptance of intolerable behaviors. I simply do not understand how any court can allow itself intimidated by any religion. Islamic religionists are apparently able to out-think our learned justices, which is also disturbing.

As for Amb. Kmiec —he was not fired; he resigned. It may be true that the threat of censure pushed him into resigning, but this does look like a case of office politics 101. Someone on his staff apparently resented having to type up his sermons.

AOW, and it's getting fewer and fewer all of the time

Sam, a large part of the problem is a lot of our judges are liberal activists.
