This is exactly the subject which has caused me to cancel my membership to the Bill O'Reilly Message board. The proposition here is ridiculous.
It is argued, essentially, that Islam will breed out Christianity and thus everything Western will die.
This rests on several faulty assumptions.
First and foremost, that the child of a Muslim will be a Muslim, even if raised in a secular western nation.
Second, that Muslims don't lose faith.
Third, that Western ideologies including democracy are dependent on Christianity.
I reject all three of these assumptions.
China has assimiliated conquerers before. The United States has assimiliated immigrants before. My ancestors were Irish Catholics and Choctaws. My
parents are protestants. I am an atheist. Culture changes people. Only the military destruction of freedom and luxury in conjunction with the instant
introduction of a near-majority population of Muslims can bring Western nations into a Caliphate. If you dropped 10 million Wahabists into America
tomorrow, with their honor killings prohibited by law, no state censorship to keep their children shielded for Islamist indoctrination, etc etc, a
large portion of the youth would liberalize in the first generation, the second generation would be heavily liberal, and in three generations the
allure of Asian women in America would be gone as the novelty of Arab strippers began to appear.
On top of all that, you assume that just because people believe in Allah that they can't embrace capitalism and democracy. Tell me why that is?
Christianity was once rigidly authoritarian and repressive, and the people liberalized it without the benefit of being in a society that already was
that way. Radical Islam can barely control the kids in the Arab world. Old men have to beat university students in Iran with sticks every now and then
to keep them in line. And these people are going to come into our backyard and play our game and win?
Now WHY would anybody take such a stupid, alarmist position? It's rationalization for discrimination and genocide.
It's disgusting. If you want to kill Radical Islam, engage the Muslims.
If you just want to kill Muslims though, by all means, keep them on the outside to be enlisted by indoctrination machine of our political enemies.
