In recent news Islam haters are not only protesting the so-called " Ground Zero Mosque ", but their religious intolerance is getting much worse:
California: cardboard signs denouncing Islam, they're protesting because the Islamic center wants to build a Mosque right here in the city.
New York: Staten Island in a plan to turn a former convent into a Mosque and community center has outraged thousands of residents.
Wisconsin: controversy over a Mosque in Sheboygan county. Many people in the area are concerned about having a Mosque in their backyard.
Tennessee: hundreds of people in Murfreesboro Tennessee protested against a planned Islamic community center.
Jon Stewart: Haven't any of these people heard of freedom of religion? Lt. Governor of Tennessee, you wanna take this one?
Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey: I'm all about freedom of religion. You can even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, way of life, or cult, whatever you want to call it.
Stewart: I think religion is what they wanna call it. I can see being confused by Scientology, or the thing Madonna does with the red bracelets, but I think 1400 years and over a billion twitter followers, Islam's kind of accepted as a religion now.
Let's see who else thinks they know what freedom of religion is all about:
Christians: I'm all in favor of freedom of religion and freedom of speech. We have nothing against Moslems, they are welcome in our country, they are welcome to worship. The issue here is not religious freedom and it is not people worshipping God through the Islamic religion, that's wonderful,
but, but, but, but
Islam is a lie from the pit of hell, Islam is of the devil, (not in the Quran or Sharia) women are stoned to death, the infidel must be converted or killed, Sharia law OKs honor killings, he supports Sharia, it is causing billions of people to go to hell, we're establishing literally a command center for terrorism right at the 9/11 site.
Stewart: I'm for freedom of religion, I'm just saying this religion is dominated by women-stoning-suicide-bombers, that's all.
Let's try to find a "nice way" to rephrase what these radical Christians truly believe about freedom of religion:
Stephen Colbert (MOCKING RADICAL CHRISTIANS): And though I am a committed Christian, I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion, be you Hindu, Jewish or Muslim, I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.
Now we'll see what Islam has to say about freedom of religion and religious tolerance.
It is important to point out that Islam recognizes the divine ORIGIN of Judaism & Christianity, but asserts that these Holy Books have been corrupted (to which the Old and the New Testament AGREE: Jer 8:8, Matt 5:20 and Matt 23:13) and we'll see examples of obvious bible corruptions later in this video.
Islam's true tolerance of Jews and Christians can be demonstrated by a few verses of the Quran:
1) The Quran 2:256 unequivocally guarantees freedom of religion:
There is NO COMPULSION in religion
2) The Quran 5:68 guides them to FOLLOW THEIR holy books:
Say: O people of the Scripture! You have naught (of guidance) until you observe the Torah and the Gospel
3) The Quran 29:46 additionally requires respectful dialogue:
And argue not with the people of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better
4) The Quran 5:47 does NOT impose Islamic law on them:
Let the People of the GOSPEL JUDGE by that which God has revealed THEREIN
5) The Quran 3:113 states that there ARE true believers among them:
of the people of the Scripture there is a staunch community who recite the revelations of God in the night season, falling prostrate (before Him).
As a result, Islam is absolutely tolerant to both Jews and Christians.
But what can we do about the increasing intolerance towards Muslims?
Stewart: This whole thing makes me just very sad. Can't we just have some kind of communal event, where we try and come together.
Florida: and that "burning of the Koran" ceremony will take place right here on the Church's front lawn from 6 to 9 on September 11th.
