Throwing acid in girls' faces just because they are attending school against Islamic teachings

That's what reportedly happened in Afghanistan. Who did it? Was it the Taliban? Was it a Western agent paid to stir up trouble to lay the pretext for more U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan? Who knows?

The covert ops people definitely infiltrate organizations to encourage members to conspire to and to carry out violent acts for purposes of Western propaganda.

There are though Islamic Fundamentalists who will go to extremes to enforce what they see as sharia.

Either way, it's a horrible thing to do to a teenage girl who is just trying to learn. Any religion that says that females aren't allowed to learn is sick.

Even if it is an operative who planted the idea, it shouldn't have taken.


The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)

      Hi Dave,

      Welcome back.

      Look, I hear you; however, you're overstating it. The number in the Klan relative to the whole of Christianity (defined loosely for the sake of my point) is not even remotely in the same ballpark with the numbers of sharia followers of the type of sharia that these acid throwers are following relative to all the Muslims (again loosely).

      I completely agree with you that there are millions, even tens and hundreds of millions, of people who believe in Islam who would never engage in that sort of behavior. However, the number who would carry out an Islamic court's order to stone someone to death is quite high. There are tens of millions of people calling themselves Muslims who do hold back females from equal educational opportunities.

      I know you're trying to be a good-hearted person. I can feel it coming threw loud and clear on your blog. I just have to disagree with you that Islam is going to get people to arrive at unity with God (if that's one of your thoughts).

      Mohammed did mis-teach about Jesus and Jesus's message. He didn't get it or worse. If reported correctly, he even said he was uncomfortable about whether he had been visited by an evil jinn or the archangel Gabriel.

      I have read the Qur'an by the way. It's loaded with stuff with which I do not hold and never will. However, I do hold with every word attributed to Jesus in the four Gospels.

      Blessings to you on your search for truth. Come again.

      NO religion teaches this. These are not Muslims who are doing this. They are criminals. They have as much in common with Muslims as the Klan has with real Christians.

      We all need to remember that.

      I apologize for how long it took to approve your comment. My web-hosting service or the Internet route to them was apparently experiencing problems up to just a few moments ago. I must go out now, so I won't be able to respond to your comment for a little while. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Thank you also for visiting the site, reading the post, and leaving your comment.

      God bless,

      Hi again Samira,

      If you feel comfortable enough, would you tell us whether or not you're in Afghanistan? If you don't feel safe saying it, we'll understand though.

      Afghanistan is in deep trouble. The U.S. hasn't done Afghanistan any favor by invading either. The people in charge of America don't care to treat others as equally valuable. They believe that the American hierarchy is God-ordained rather than tenants who murdered the landlord's son when he came to collect. I'm referring to Jesus.

      "But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance." (Matthew 21:38)

      The neocons falsely claim they are making the world safe for democracy. They are though spreading empire (The New American Century that is already over).

      The Taliban is being reactive to poor communication (and violent attacks) — those who seek to seize on their inheritance &mdash their raw materials, etc., in the name of defeating radical, fundamentalist Islam. They aren't being challenged intellectually. That's what ought to happen though. The Islam leaders of the Taliban need to sit down with real Christians and go through the Qur'an and the Gospels to have an open and frank discussion about what is truly best (what God wants).

      Anyone afraid to do that lacks the courage of his convictions.

      God bless,

      Tom Usher
