What 'Freedom of Religion' Means to Muslims..
In his speech accepting the Republican nomination for Presidency on August 30th, Mitt Romney stated: "I will guarantee America's first freedom – freedom of religion."
In the United States, freedom of religion is a constitutionally guaranteed right provided in religion clauses of the First Amendment. Freedom of religion is also closely associated with separation of church and state, a concept advocated by Thomas Jefferson.
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.
Religion found so much importance in Romney speech is certainly because of the troubles and frictions Western society are having exclusively with the religion of Islam. Let us see what freedom of religion means to Muslims.
To Muslims, freedom of religion means practicing Islam only. This means, Muslims are obligated by the Quran (2:193, 8:39 etc.) to destroy all other religions – Christianity, Judaism, Mormonism, Hinduism and others – by whatever means necessary for establishing Islam was the only religion in the whole worlds.
Freedom of religion in the Western democratic world is aimed at protecting the rights and dignity of different religious communities, so that they can practice their respective religious rites and rituals without fear and interference. However, religious freedom to Muslims – that is, allowing them to practice what they are obligated to by the holy book – means allowing them the right to establishment Islam as the state religion, murdering and subjugating infidels (9:5, 9:29), murdering apostates, dhimmitude for Christians and Jews, enslaving and raping of kafir women and children, subjugation and repression of Muslim women, extermination of unbelievers, killing the critics/blasphemers of Islam, and most of all, for America, destroying her constitution with its imbedded freedom and democracy, and replacing it with Sharia Law. These are all demanded of Muslims by their sacred texts, namely the Quran and Ahadith (Sunnah). We can see all or most of these happening in Islamic heavens like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
As per the Quran and Sunnah, following are Muslims’ religious obligations, therefore, their religious right, and America must allow them act accordingly as per their constitutional right to freedom of religion as Romney has promised:
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to unleash jihad – the Islamic holy war to conquer all kafir nations and force them to submit to Islam. There are 164 Quranic teachings of Jihad. (Quran 29.6, 29.53, 22.52)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right marry and have sex with to pre-Pubescent children, which is deemed abhorrent rape of minors or pedophilia (65:4)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to polygamy (4.3)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to gang rape infidel women (24:13)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to sex slavery (4:24)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to torturing non-Muslims (22.19-22)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to whipping fornicators (24.2)
- God has granted Muslim men right to amputation and crucifixion (5:33)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to beheading (8:12, 47:4)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to wife-beating (4:34)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to holding women inferior (2.228, 4.11, 4.176)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to using women as sex objects (2.223)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to committing mass murder, massacre and genocide of infidels (2:191, 9:5, 4:47, 8.67, 7.4, 8.17)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to terrorizing kafirs (8.60, 3.151)
- God has granted Muslim men accession to a immoral paradise for killing kafirs or getting killed while trying to kill kafirs (9.111)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to theft and robbery (Entire Chapter 8 called “Booty”)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to forcing all other religions to submission to Islam (2.103, 2.286, 3.19, 48.16)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to hate (5.60, 2.61)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to slavery (2.178)
- God has granted Muslim men the divine right to extortion (9:29)
Most of all, Muslims are divinely obligated by their God to establish the Quranic law aka Sharia Law as the complete code or sole source of law for running the world. In other words, allowing religious freedom to Muslims to obligate America to accede to Muslims’ demands for replacing the American Constitution with totalitarian Sharia law.
Under Sharia Law, there is no freedom of religion, speech, thought, press and artistic expression; no equality of peoples – a non-Muslim, a Kafir, is never equal to a Muslim; no equal rights for women; women can be beaten by the husbands; non-Muslims are dhimmis, third-class citizens; there is no equal protection under Sharia for different classes of people with one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims. Death is the punishment for apostasy, homosexuality, mocking anything in the Qur'an or the Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad, criticizing Islam, shari'ah law or the Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad. Muslims, who states a preference for democracy to shari'ah law or questions anything in the Qur'an or Sunnah, is a kafir (disbeliever) and apostate, liable to punishment to death. Punishment for theft is amputation of the right hand up to the elbow. The penalty for premarital sexual intercourse is 100 lashes with a whip and one year of exile. The penalty for adultery is death by stoning.
Islam, in the guise of a religion, is actually a militant political ideology intended for conquering the world for imaginary Allah. The Koran is a declaration of open-ended war against the infidels, until all infidels convert to Islam, or reduced to dhimmitude (institutionalized discrimination akin to slavery status), murdered or enslaved.
Islam is exactly opposite to what the US Constitution and the First Amendment clause stand for. Allowing Muslims to perform their every religious obligation under freedom of religion will mean the destruction of our Constitution and the end of democracy and freedom in America.
