When Christians Take Off After Satanists or Muslims THEY Become Recruitment Tools

Posted on October 25, 2010

Christian extremist politicos never learn.  How soon they forget that they were once fodder for entertainment in the lion-infested ring of the Coliseum  in Ancient Rome and that history could repeat itself  momentarily if they become overly obnoxious – to other Christians!

Out in Oklahoma City, Satanists were holding their ritual in the civic center but dodging Christians picketing outside to enter.  Strong feelings were on both sides. But face it, most Christian kids are going to be fascinated that adults are running around in funny devil masks taking themselves seriously.  And of course if their parents are against it, there must be something extremely worth investigating going down. A few good letters to the editor on on-line or just letting the ridiculousness of the satanists play out and their impact would have been nil.  But picket and yell, the whole world is listening.   [CNN]

To date, “militant” Christians have done an excellent job of highlighting “militant”  Muslim terrorist groups  and their evil ways and in so doing have helped push up recruitment numbers for al Qaeda and other similar groups.  The practice continues:

A New York congressman sent a letter to the chief executive of YouTube Sunday, asking that the company remove all videos featuring Anwar al-Awlaki — a man the congressman called the “bin Laden of the internet.”Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-New York, made the request one day after the online appearance of a new al-Awlaki video. The Yemeni-American cleric and militant has been linked to al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen, where he is believed to be in hiding.

Weiner said that hundreds of al-Awlaki videos are available on YouTube, with a combined total of more than 3.5 million views.

“A known terrorist named Anwar al-Awlaki, dubbed the ‘bin Laden of the Internet,’ has been using YouTube to promote his extremist ideology and recruit a new generation of terrorists. I am asking that you remove all videos featuring Anwar al-Awlaki from your website and set up safeguards to prevent future videos of from being posted,” Weiner wrote to Chad Hurley, YouTube’s chief executive.

Requests to censure videos doesn’t win many followers among intelligent beings but will surely gain the attention of would-be followers of Bin Laden.
