Now that the murderous, cowardly, bastard has awakened, I feel my blood begin to boil. He lives after taking away so much from so many. It is so hard to fight the urge to cry out for the destruction of Muslim people everywhere, to extract sweet revenge. It is not so simple. Nor is it right, and yet that brings me little solace. And even less to the victims.


 

 

M uslims believe Muhammad to be the last and greatest prophet who
U nderstood Allah to be the One True God and believed that the eternal
S oul of man, who, was formed from a clot of blood, continues in the afterlife
L iving in paradise or Hell depending on life’s account. Now splinter groups seek
I nfidels in the name of wealth and theft, tribal discord and Islam
M urdering them as necessary to accomplish, not conversion, but destruction
 
VS.
 
C hrist preached forgiveness of his fellow man,  who was formed from dust
H ate was to be returned solely with love
R esisting evil temptation, belief, in exchange for eternal life
I gniting men’s spirits to pursue the glory of the One God
S ustaining faith when all is dark
T hen men abandoned tolerance and forgiveness
I deologies of wealth, and theft, and the Ism’s reined supreme
A ttacking, twisting and distorting the lessons of the Lamb so that
N ow we find ourselves again at the doorstep of another pointless Crusade
 
 
 
There is so much similarity here, in both good and evil. Mixing politics and religion is akin to mixing poison with Kool Aid. The results are inevitably the same. The few constantly try to convince the many to take a drink, and sometimes, sadly, they do. Rooting out the few is not a political matter, nor is it a religious matter, it is a human matter.

Quite a powerful write, Patrick! There are fanatics in every so called "religion". I think if we all practiced "spirituality" on an individual basis (whatever that spirituality might be), the world would be a better place. No matter what our beliefs, we are all part of the same group "humanity".

Kill, kill, kill the "enemies" of Islam they say.
Well, a good Muslim is a dead Muslim, and 2 billion of dead good Muslims means 144 billions of virgins...now I know they are nuts!

Fantastic acrostic!! This tells very powerfully of the co-opting of all religions to control and corrupt the many for the benefit of the few. One thing you might not be aware of is the fact that radical Islam was actually funded by Western governments and is in many respects either completely controlled, co-opted or influenced by intelligence (CIA, MOSSAD, MI6, etc.)It started with the CIA funding the Mudjahadeen in Afghanistan in the '80s. This then morphed into al Qaeda (itself a CIA creation) and on and on it goes. We literally create and fund our own enemies to deliver a pretext to take over nations for resources because it's all about business. Nothing else. Good poem.

There is a world of difference in their theology. There is little difference in the way they live... good and bad. I have two Muslim friends that I would trust with my life. I wouldn't trust the majority of Christians that I know with a dollar. It is sad when you consider the founder of their movement... or faith... or religion... or whatever the touchy they want it to be called.

Your poem and what it expresses is "right on," Patrick. Your point of view is apt and timely and replete with the truth. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

I too believe he Christian standpoint is right - The problem is Christians don't always practice what they preach. . .
Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado 11/9/2009
Who is right? I personally think the Christian standpoint is because Jesus preached love and goodness, not violence and hatred, yet He was hated for it and eventually killed, even though He was totally without sin, without blemish. Sad! God help us all!
