Take a look:
Muslim extremists are using a relatively new tool in their attempt to intimidate and bully Christians, with death threats sent by text-messaging to Christian church leaders, a new report confirms.Assuming all that is accurate, what is WND missing?
The report comes from Compass Direct, which monitors and reports on Christian issues around the globe. The situation has developed in Sudan.
"We want this country to be purely an Islamic state, so we must kill the infidels and destroy their churches all over Sudan," Compass Direct sources in the African nation have reported that one text message said.
Let me rewrite the text message and I'll show you:
We want this country to be purely an Christian Nation, so we must kill the infidels and destroy their churches all over America.How outlandish does THAT sound? No one ever said that here, right? As recently as 2004 the Texas Republican Party Platform read:
The Republican Party of Texas affirms that the United States of America is a Christian nation, and the public acknowledgement of God is undeniable in our history.Then there was Operation Rescue's Randall Terry in 1993:
I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called on by God to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism.More recently, there's Pam Geller and the non-Mosque at not-Ground Zero.
See? Not so different, is it?
