From Tennessee Freedom Coalition:
On Thursday evening at Glendale Baptist Church, the Nashville-based interfaith group Family of Abraham is hosting a discussion entitled "Human Rights, Civil Liberties, and Religious Freedom." The event begins at 7pm, is located at 1202 Glendale Lane, and is free of charge.
Blanche Cook, a Federal Prosecutor with the US Attorney General's office will be speaking, followed by a panel discussion that includes local muslim activist Remziya Suleyman of the American Center for Outreach and Hedy Weinberg of the ACLU of Tennessee.
This group has held interfaith events throughout the city of Nashville, each with considerable positive coverage by the Tennessean. Bill Warner, of PoliticalIslam.com has long been speaking out about the dangers of radical Islam. He plans to attend the meeting on Thursday evening and silently hand out a flier to those in attendance. The content of the flier is included below. First, a message from Andy Miller, Chairman of the TFC.
Recently I had the pleasure of speaking at an event in Dallas that Frank Gaffney Jr. set up with about 45-50 prominent business leaders about educating and working with State Legislators on issues regarding the Political Nature of Islam. At that event was a Pastor named Rafael Cruz... Yes, Senator Ted Cruz' Father. After the event he and I talked for close to an hour and a half and he told me that one of if not the most irresponsible and dangerous groups leading folks astray regarding Islam's Agenda were America's Clergy. He specifically brought up the "Family of Abraham" Interfaith Events and made it clear to me that when a Pastor or Preacher knows so little about another religion's tenets or its clearly stated agenda and professes that "We pray to the same God" or that "Allah and God" are one in the same that they are not only leading their flock dangerously astray but are actually delivering them into the hands of Evil.
I see Pastor Cruz as completely right and correct. I stand with him and will speak the same. Anyone that can so blindly and recklessly mislead so many is in some respects more dangerous than the Evil Ideology that they pretend to understand.
Strong Words? You bet. Read the Koran! Understand how it Works! But also the Sira and Hadiths... Read the "Reliance of the Traveller"! Know how abrogation works within the Koran. Understand what it is to be a Kafir and know that you are one.
But stop pretending that a Supremacist Ideology that sees us all as dirty, filthy subhumans that they can effectively do whatever they choose, including rob, rape and murder, has any interest in "Being a part of your Family". Because he is compelled by "Allah" to either convert you or end your life. Sound like your God? Not mine, either.
- We demand a voice for the Kafir political class, particularly in matter of government. This includes education and law enforcement.
- We demand a voice for the martyrs of jihad.
- We demand a voice for those who suffer under political Sharia— apostates, women, artists, gays, free thinkers.
- We demand that those who claim leadership and speak about Islam know the Islamic political doctrine found in the Koran and the Sunna.
We will debate any person or team
We hold that the resolution is false and will debate anyone who affirms the resolution.
- There are different political/legal classes in Islam based on gender and religion.
- There is no freedom of consciousness, since apostates from Islam may be murdered.
- There is no freedom of religion, since the Sharia dictates all public behavior, including religious behavior.
- There is no freedom of speech due to blasphemy laws that greatly restrict what can be said.
- Artists, writers and intellectuals are not free to do anything that offends Islam.
- Political speech is forbidden that offends Islam.
There is never a voice from those who are persecuted under the jihad laws of the Sharia. Every year thousands of Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Hindus and others are murdered because they are non- Muslims, called Kafirs.
There is never a voice from a non- Muslim (Kafir) who has knowledge about Islam, Sharia and the history of Islam. Those who hold views of any view other than—Islam is wonderful —are condemned as immoral and bigots and, as such, are not heard.
There is no voice for the victims of Sharia laws—abused women, apostates, persecuted artists, gays and writers.
There are two manifestations of Islam—religious and political. The voice of political Islam is censored. We only hear about religious Islam.
My Comment: I will be unable to attend, as I have prior obligation (drinking beer at Liberty on the Rocks). If anyone attends, please give me a report of what happens. Rodwilliams47@yahoo.com
