What is Pat Robertson endorsing here?

A man calls in and says his wife does not respect him, etc. Robertson’s very first take on it:

“Well you could become a Muslim and you could beat her.”

To even joke about such a thing — if he was joking in the first place — is not funny. Nor should it even be insinuated from the lips of a man who calls himself a follower of Jesus Christ.

Without knowing any details, Robertson goes on:

“This man’s gotta stand up to her, he can’t let her get away with this stuff.”

“I don’t think we condone wife beating these days, but something’s got to be done to her…”

There are always two sides to every story. My first question would be what is it you do that ticks your wife off so bad? Not that she automatically would have a right to behave a certain way. But there is more going on there than the husband was willing to share. PR did not even address this possibility.

Notice how PR said, something’s got to be done to her. This implies punishment. Not with her, which would be a form of an act of working together, of unity. But to her. Her also implying the woman is completely at fault when her side of the story has not been heard.

Female host ask why the woman would not want to talk about the problems. This in my opinion is a start to real communication. Why would the woman not want to talk to her husband, why does she threaten him? Does she have a possible medical problem, is she a total wack job or is she a woman trying to defend herself from an abusive tyrannical husband? Robertson does not even care to address these possible issues. Instead he assumes:

“She is just totally, uh, she’s rebellious. Chances are she was rebellious with her father. She was a rebellious child.”

Pat knows absolutely nothing about the woman in question. Yet, he assumes. For all we know, the woman may have grown up in an abusive home with an abusive father.

She doesn’t want to submit to any authority.

Once again, he assumes. What is the woman’s husband like? Is he a man of God led by the Spirit of God, a man who loves his wife like Christ loves the Church? Or is he a control freak? Is he abusive?

And she probably had temper tantrums when she was a kid and… you know the little girl, ‘I hate you, I hate you’ and she wants to slap her father.

Again he assumes. He assumes she had temper tantrums. Some children are not allowed to even show certain emotions. Anger may be one. Any tantrums they may have, may show much later in life. In spite of what people would like to thing is the every day norm, some fathers are not always nice to their little girls, and yes there may be times when a child may want to slap a parent, IF there is abuse going on.  

Well, that’s the same kind of thing. She’s transfered the father now…that’s the problem, she does not understand authority. When she was growing up, nobody made her behave and now you’ve got a 13 year old in a 30 year old body and she is acting like a child.

He assumes too much and he knows nothing. It could have been she grew up in a home where discipline went beyond the norm, where authority was not something she could trust. 

What do you do with that? You can’t divorce her according to the scripture… so I say move to saudi arabia.”

My dogs — if possible — are more qualified to offer marriage counseling than Pat Robertson!

I’ve been familiar with this woman for some time now. Her story is a remarkable one. She explains how she grew up Christian in Lebanon and what she and other Christians went through. America truly has no clue what is trying to rear it’s ugly head.

Her story is a graphic one. She warns us.

And to think our government is helping fund those who desire not only the downfall of other nations, but ours too!

Do not become so complacent that you think this can never happen in your own backyard.

The Church in America better wake up.

The Syrian Revolution’s Dire Threat to Christians

Leave a comment

This event has been very hard for me to understand. I have had to read this article more than once and I can only hope I have understood it correctly to mean exactly what the title says. 

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/theodore-shoebat/the-syrian-revolutions-dire-threat-to-christians/

December 4, 2012  By

The Syrian Revolution geared toward the establishment of an Islamic state. As this revolution’s fire burns, therefore, it is no surprise that Islamists are massacring Christians. If an Islamic state becomes the reality in Syria, and the developments reveal that that will soon be the case, we can expect a full-out genocide against Christians to be implemented by the Islamists in Syria. The fall of Assad will mean a mass cleansing of anybody who believes in the Bible, since the Assad regime protects the Christian population.

Just in late November, two car bombs went off in a Christian and Druze suburb of Damascus, killing forty-five and injuring 120. In a recent report by the UK’s Independent, one Syrian said that the rebels

wanted to kill us because we were Christians. They were calling us Kaffirs [infidels], even little children saying these things. Those who were our neighbours turned against us.

Archbishop Issam John Darwish said that there has been “an influx of jihadists in the rebels in the last six, seven months.”

On November 8th of this year, Agenzia Fides reported that the Catholic Church was trying to rescue ten Christians who were abducted by Islamists as they were traveling from Aleppo to Beirut.

According to an article written by Beatriz Schiava:

Christian neighborhoods like Bab Touma, Qatana, the Christian Quarters of Damascus, Hamidiye, and neighborhoods of Aleppo such as Sulaymaniya, AL Jarbiriya, Al Tilal, Villas, and many others have been targeted with bomb attacks and snipers that kill and injure hundreds of innocent bystanders.

On September 25, the Vatican News stated that 150 Greek Catholics, working in their apple fields near the village of Rableh between the Lebanese border and the city of Qusayr, were kidnapped. The next day, another 130 Christians from Rableh were kidnapped by armed thugs. The perpetrators behind this were part of a Sunni Islamist group from Lebanon called Ahmad Ammoun.

Though Ahmad Ammoun was said to have no known connection with the Free Syrian Army (FSA), it turns out that they do have a relation. As I reported on the event, both Ahmad Ammoun and the FSA are Salafist, and both have waged attacks on Christians and Alawite Muslims.

Attacks on churches, looting, the seizing of private property, and murder, are now common crimes done against Christians.

Christians who are not wealthy enough to leave Syria have stayed behind, becoming an easy target for rebels, who have blocked there homes.

In September, it was reported that 150 Christians took up arms to prevent rebels from entering major areas of Aleppo. In the Christian quarter of Jdeidah, Christian militia, with Syrian military assistance, took out Free Syrian Army thugs who were hiding in the Ferhat Square of the area. The reason? FSA members were hiding in buildings killing random Christians. According to one Christian witness named John,

“FSA snipers were on the rooftops and they were attacking the Maronite church and Armenian residents there.”

Manaf Tlass, a very famous rebel in Syria, has a cousin named Abdul Razzak, who commands the notorious al-Farouq brigade of the opposition, which was responsible for the forced exile of 80,000 Christians out of Homs.

In Aleppo, about 100 rebels invaded a Christian area of the city. One report on Syria had this to say:

The violent situation deeply hurts the entire Syrian population, the Christian community as well as other people groups. But about two or three weeks ago we observed an increase of violence that specifically is targeting Christians or Christian neighborhoods. Bombs now are placed in Christian areas where there is no strategic or military target at all.

Also in Aleppo, in November, a bomb went off near a Syriac Orthodox Church leaving between 20 and 80 people dead. An Armenian church was also bombed after being raided and vandalized by rebels.

One Christian named Michel said that the persecution toward Christians began after the first protest against the Assad regime. He continued to say:

“Then suddenly arms were being used and there were Arabs from different countries … They broke into Christian houses and accused them of blasphemy.”

Michel also recounted a horrific event which happened to his family while he was gone from his home:

“It was indescribable fear. They burned tyres in front of the house and wanted to burn the house….[My wife] took the children and was jumping over walls from one street to another until they managed to escape.’

The St. Gevorg Church in Aleppo’s Armenian Nor Kyugh district was set in flames by rebels, being almost put to ashes, while the Mesrobian Armenian school next to the church was also attacked. Moreover, in the Armenian district of Damascus, a bomb went off that killed 10 people, and wounded another 50.

Agnes Mariam, the Mother Superior of the Melkite Greek Catholic monastery of St. James the Mutilated in Qara, said that while the Assad regime does “not favor Christians, the social fabric of Syria is very diverse, so Christians live in peace.”

Right when Assad’s regime topples, the Christians will be amongst the greatest victims.

While Israel has not gotten involved in the revolution, it is not optimistic either. Syrian rebels have taken almost all of the villages near the frontier with the Golan Heights. Ehud Barak said: “Almost all of the villages, from the foot of this ridge to the very top, are already in the hands of the Syrian rebels.”

One rebel named Mateen said that the rebellion has “a big fight against the Jews ahead of us. We will take that up, God willing.”

Pope Benedict XVI has in fact objected to sending any arms into Syria, where they will be put into the hands of the rebels:

“The import of weapons has to finally stop …Without the import of arms the war cannot continue. Instead of importing weapons, which is a grave sin, we have to import ideas of peace and creativity.”

Redeemed Hippie: The pope’s words mean very little to me. Trying to “import peace and creativity” makes about as much sense as letting a fox guard a hen house. I’m sure those who are being persecuted over there, just loooove his idea.  

Where are the voices from major contemporary churches? Where is Rick Warren, Joel Olsteen? America and Europe have not offered any help for the Christians, and while mainstream churches stay silent, the U.S. government and Western allies are making matters worse. Within hours of Obama’s re-election victory, Western allies had already designed a development for Syria, expecting a much more aggressive approach to Syria by the president. England and Turkey have been discussing the use of NATO against Bashar al-Assad, expecting more support from Obama.

Let’s not forget that Obama last month recognized the official Syrian opposition as a legitimate group, saying,

I’m encouraged to see that the Syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they’ve had in the past, …We consider them a legitimate representative of the aspirations of the Syrian people. We’re not yet prepared to recognize them as some sort of government in exile, but we do think that it is a broad-based representative group.

What will this do? Remember Egypt. What caused the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian revolution to be so confident? They got Obama’s approval in his famous “New Beginning” speech of 2009, which he gave in Cairo (a speech which, I believe, will be judged by history as one of the most destructive acts of a U.S. president).

While Obama has been vocal on his support for the Syrian revolution and the toppling of Assad, his administration is now considering giving weapons to help the rebels. The New York Times reported in November:

“While no decisions have been made, the administration is considering several alternatives, including directly providing arms to some opposition fighters.”

Turkey wants NATO to provide them with surface-to-air missiles to supposedly protect the country from the Syrian military, and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that the Patriot missile system would not be “for use beyond the Turkish border.”

The chances are high that the Obama administration and NATO’s involvement will go beyond just talk, and will involve working with terrorist groups, just as they did when they worked to oust out Gaddafi, as Walid Shoebat reported:

Appointing Libyan fighters to oust Qaddafi was akin to appointing the same individuals with the same ideology as Al-Qaeda. That ideology was established by the fighting groups that were involved in the Afghan-Russian war. It was these groups that were aided by NATO forces and supported by the Obama administration, which wanted the removal of the Gaddafi regime.

From what I have heard, the reasons why America is in support of toppling Assad is because they see him as a brutal tyrant who needs to be removed. Also, because America sees the Shiites as the major threat, and it believes that by removing Assad, Iran will then be weakened significantly. But what America and the rest of the West need to realize is that that by getting rid of Assad, the road will be paved for Turkey to invade Syria, and will yield Turkey’s rise as a major superpower in the Middle East.

With all of this said, the point is clear: Islam is an anti-Christian ideology, and when its fundamentalist followers take Syria, the Christians living there will be enslaved and become the victims of genocide.

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ

I received the following in an email:

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ

The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.

REMEMBER AS YOU READ — IT WAS IN A SPANISH PAPER

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

I walked down the street in Barcelona , and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz … We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .

Now, how can anyone in their right mind not see the truth in this? Don’t want to face the truth? Then expect one lie after another grabbing hold of your life and throwing you in bondage.

Every woman’s “dream” — a muslim husband from hell

You American feminists, where are you, you hypocrites?! You cowardly spineless lilly livered yellow bellies are a disgrace to the word woman! You can’t be found on these issues because you don’t care! That is exactly why! And why is it you do not care? Because most of you are so butch ugly, no man would ever have you, so what is it to you that a real woman would be beaten?! You feminists make me sick!

On to another point: This is a MOCKERY from Satan himself on how to treat women.

But you liberals go right ahead and hold your little peace fests and sing kumbaya or whatever the heck it is you do that makes you feel oh so important and compaaaaasionate. One good thing about this is, it SHOWS WHO AND WHAT YOU ARE! COWARDS! APPEASERS! Your human rights agenda is a total flipping joke!  

OmniChristianVids2: In this clip, translated by Memri, Egyptian Cleric Sa’d Arafat tells the interviewer how beating women actually honors them. He say’s “Allah honored wives by instating the punishment of beatings” and then goes on to list the rules regarding wife beating.
