A leftist American pol bows to Mecca
The leftist governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn, who is not a Muslim, “[kneeled] on a rug facing the holy city of Mecca, [and] followed along as thousands bowed in prayer to celebrate Eid, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.”LA replies:
Liberals, who have with ruthless thoroughness excluded the slightest acknowledgment of biblical religion from the American public square, happily participate in public Islamic religious observances. And they get away with this. How? Because any recognizable and effective American public opinion no longer exists. There is only liberal public opinion.
Second, as we see in this story, liberals hate the traditional ordered freedom of America. Whether they are aware of it or not, they long for the tyranny of Islam.They want to serve their master. The behavior of liberals towards Christianity speaks as evidence for the truth of Christianity, and their behavior towards Islam speaks as evidence about the falseness of Islam. Liberalism is the anti-truth, and liberals can be observed to figure out what the truth is, in an inverse manner. Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in there.
