The Religion of Peace and the Cancellation of Arab Festival In Dearborn

It appears the Dearborn Arab Festival is cancelled for this year. Probably a good thing, for after the violence done last year by the followers of the religion of peace, someone could have gotten seriously injured this year.

(be sure to watch all the way through….)

    You must be a fan of the Answering Muslims site. David Wood does a pretty good job exposing Islam as a violent religion. It’s one of the few times I can be on the same page with Christians.

    I think this is probably more to do with a potent mix of high tensions, mob mentality, racism and young frustrated people choosing an ugly outlet to vent their own personal angst. I think its to do with power.

    This is an example of how human beings can mistreat each other and behave in really ugly ways. I don’t think it is necessarily a reflection of Islam in general; there are many Muslims who are very respectful and compassionate in their interactions with people from other faiths. I express this from personal experience. Many Arabic and African cultures have an emphasis on respecting and being thoughtful of strangers, and it is expected that Muslim families invite visitors into their homes, feed them and treat them well. This has more to do with culture. The toxic polarisation of people in some places in the world just causes people to misrepresent each other. Further polarisation reinforces this and when people don’t understand, this leaves a place for fear and violence.

    Horrible example I know – but think of the people who lynched other people back in the 1890s. Many of the people involved I assume were Christian, but the mob mentality directed individuals as a whole to allow and instigate horrible things. I think this has less to do with religion, and more to do with ethnicity, people’s background, fear, disrespect and misunderstanding.

    I’m probably breaking one of the rules on your site by commenting on something different than the attached article. I was just reading Time to Support the Christian Service Brigade. I wanted to comment on that, but couldn’t find where to do so. Anyway, I saw the position you took as one directly in opposition to what I believe Jesus actively did in his ministry – go out of his way to spend nearly all of his time with those who were supposed “outcasts”. I just wanted to say that I don’t understand why you would encourage people to avoid “sinners” when Jesus and God make it clear that those are the ones who are the first guests invited to the party.
