I don’t weigh in much on politics. For the most part, politics is a tar baby. Especially in my extended family. Best to avoid the conversation.
Generally, I have had the same stance with Islam.
But, after the attacks in London, and especially after the attack during the Arianna Grande concert in Manchester, I am done. Can you identify another religion who targets a bunch of little girls at a concert?
Neither can I.
I have shifted my position. Islam is the enemy. This needs to be said by more people and it needs to be said more often.
I am with Bruce Bawer. I refuse to ignore the truth any longer. I also refuse to lie about Islam. I am not going rouge. I am simply joining the sane chorus of voices who dare to speak the truth.
Deceive yourself if you like. I’m done.

Author Douglas Wilson comments on this same subject in a post from 2011 entitled, Seven Memes for Keeping Christians in their Place.
“The Crusades were actually a long overdue defensive reaction to many years of Muslim belligerence, militarism, agressiveness, and provocation. If a “crusade” is an unprovoked military attack on religious grounds, then we need to start speaking of the Muslim Crusades.

Dr. Bill Warner throws down the gauntlet. I am paraphrasing. “Don’t like what I am saying? Disagree? Do your own research. This is not hate. This is history.”
Here are some sobering statistics:
Personally, I believe Islam is nervous. Here is why:
Like it or not, Christianity will spread until it conquers the globe.
Christianity is not shrinking. It is not diminishing. It is not retreating.
On the contrary, it is a wildfire.
American and European Christians need to stop apologizing. Like it or not, Christianity wins.
