Hey I've Got Something To Say, I Killed Your Baby Today

I was thinking of the Book Of Mormon, where the Lamanites were a scourge to the Nephites whenever the Nephites started to stray off course of their moral bearings. The Nephites became very prosperous in their times of relative peace and very rich, which led to periods of decadence. These decadent times would then be marked by war-mongering by the Lamanites, who would enslave or kill the Nephites until the Nephites would repent and turn back to the Lord. The parallel I'm drawing here is for the times I live in. Isn't the Book Of Mormon written for us and our times? I think it would be pretty safe to say we are in a period of decadence unmatched by any time in history. The United States fosters some of the most disgusting pornography in the world. We are forced to debate Constitutional Amendments on marriage. Laziness is fostered by our government. Our government leaders get away with murder, literally. The United States is not the only country guilty of this decadence; it seems to me to be a worldwide movement. However, the United States has the Constitution, a document allowing the most individual freedoms for anyone in the world we believe is inspired by God. So who is our scourge?

I think it is a multi-faceted answer, but one which stands out, and I believe this, is Islam. What a screwed-up religion. I had a hard time debating this with myself, trying to see the world from their point of view, reading history to see how much involvement the United States has in fostering their beliefs in murder, and I just don't get it. What really convinced me and made it clear was the ransacking of Paris last year and the WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT of violence and destruction after a...cartoon. Now look at Canada. Seventeen Canadian Muslims were busted with plans of the same old Islamic crap (including beheadings) before they were able to carry it out. I wonder when it will happen here in the U.S. again. As Christians, unless you're a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, we tend to empathize and turn the other cheek in order to allow both ourselves and the offenders space to grow better. Islam is not like that. The war we are in is religious in nature, and no amount of political maneuvering is going to make peace with Islam. Islam is slavery, and therefore naturally repugnant to all freedom-loving peoples. Maybe that is why there are so many suicide-homicide bombers in Islam. They know no better and rather choose the freedom death offers rather than live enslaved by their own religion.

I don't believe this war started in our times, or even mortal times. This war was fought in biblical times, Book Of Mormon times, and will be fought to some extent in the future. This is an extension of the war started before the Earth was created, except now there is the physicality of the flesh to deal with. Freedom versus slavery. So, there you go. My thought of the day. If I've offended anyone, good.

I'm going to have to dig up the link Patrick, but I heard the most amazing guest on a radio talk show recently. He was discussing the threat of Islam to the United States during.....ready for this? The 1700's. For any ignoramus who touts the creation of Israel as being the impetus of stirring up anti-American hate from Muslims, think again. This war against Islamic extremists along with feelings of animosity are nearly 250 years in the making.

Longer than that. Terrorism is Islam missionary work.
