America is going to Hell in that proverbial hand basket, and here’s just one of the reasons.
Did you know that, about two months ago, on November 14, 2014, the U.S. House of Representatives invited an imam to open its sessions with a prayer to Allah?
CSPAN reports that the prayer was offered by a Muslim cleric from the Islamic Society of Central Jersey, Monmouth Junction, NJ.
Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli, a native of Lebanon, said:
“The name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful. Praise be to Allah, the cherisher, the sustainer of the world. The most gracious, the most merciful master of the day of judgment. Thee do we worship and thine do we seek. Guide us to the safe path. The god of all the prophets and the messenger says in the Koran, he does not place a responsibility on you greater than you can bear. Everyone will receive the good they have earned and vice versa. Let us pray. O god, bless us as we begin a new day. Bless this assembly. Bless the people and nation it represents. O god, at this time in our history, the challenges for our nation and the world are many. O god, grant these men and women the wisdom, the guidance and the strength to pursue compassion, justice and sound judgment. O god, in your wisdom, you have placed upon them great responsibility and honor. O god, please help them with your guidance and your light. O god, O god, improve the well being of all inhabitants of this great nation and beyond. Amen.”
The blogosphere is alight with news of that. But Nov. 14, 2014, was not the first time House Speaker (and leader) John Boehner (R-Ohio) saw fit to invite a Muslim to offer a prayer to Allah. Here’s a video I found from July 31, 2013:
The Florida Senate did it too, on March 18, 2014:
And at Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives too! – on Dec. 12, 2011:
Those are just a few I found in a quick search on YouTube. I’m sure there are many other examples.
Of the 55 delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, 51 were Christians (49 Protestants and 2 Roman Catholics). Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were anti-clerical Christians; Thomas Paine was a deist. NONE was Muslim.
As historian John Fea observes, “If . . . the United States was not ‘founded on the Christian religion,’ then someone forgot to tell the American people . . . . The idea that the United States is a ‘Christian nation,’ has always been central to American identity.” (For a more detailed treatment, see Bill Flax, “Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?,” Forbes, Sept. 25, 2012.)
It’s bad enough that the United States of America, founded by Christians on Christian principles, now has a Muslim do the invocation prayer at the House of Representatives, considered and designed by our Founders to be the government body most representative of the People. But did you know that Islam’s Allah may in fact be a pagan moon
deity demon called Hubal or Baal?
There is an ongoing debate as to whether the Allah of the Qur’an is in fact a pagan Arab moon god of pre-Islamic times. The idea has been mentioned in literature for more than a century, but only recently has the theory been seriously promoted. See:
- Ishmaelites and the Worship of God
- Is the Quran An Implicit Endorsement and Continuation of Arab Paganism?
Now you know one of the reasons why America is so screwed.
