DEAR EUROPE & AMERICA: Those ‘Poor Refugees’ Sure Look And Act Like Radical Muslims To Me


waving flagBy Doug Giles

A couple of weeks ago I got a flurry of appeal letters from ministries asking me to financially help them help the “refugees” fleeing the crap-hole called Syria.

The ministries hit me with the normative guilt-trip noise about “what would Jesus do?”; that “any good Christian worth their salt would definitely help the suffering refugees”; and that if the reader/me didn’t help these “refugees” then they/I suck as a Christian.

That’s not exactly what the letter said, but that was the gist of it.

Now, I know my tightly wound evangelical bros out there don’t think that I’m “saved” because I own a cigar company, openly enjoy alcohol and I, occasionally, can and do out cuss a stevedore, but I do try to please Jesus as much as a fallen critter can.

In addition, I’m well aware that my Catholic amigos think I have the soul of a heretic because I’m a fan of Calvin’s TULIP, but I too would like to inform them that, believe it or not, I’m sold, lock-stock-and-two-smokin’-barrels, on following the rebel from Galilee.

With all of that said … I would love to help people, especially folks suffering under the ignoble muck storm which is Islam, but from my perch these “poor refugees” look like psycho-terrorists, who are not “fleeing for their lives” but purposefully infiltrating Western Civilization in order to make it sink like Bruce Jenner’s new hooters soon will.

Matter of fact, ever since this mass migration to Europe from Syria has occurred, we’ve been following it over at my outfit ClashDaily.com quite religiously.

From what I’ve been able to deduce from the various news feeds from all over the planet, minus CNN, MSNBC and Glenn Beck’s show, is that these “poor refugees” don’t seem like they’re looking too arduously for help with a willingness to assimilate into their “saving” nation.

For instance, here’s what I have had a problem with:

  • The “poor refugee” pics I’ve seen seem to be filled with 18-45 year old, miffed Muslim men who look bat-crap crazy, entitled and angry at their receiving country.
  • Pardon me for being a skeptic, but when the “refugees”… “convert” … to Christianity, simply to appease and receive the perks — namely food and money — from the nation in which they’re currently flooding, I question their sincerity.
  • What’s up with these “refugees” being at the center of massive rape allegations? That seems weird.
  • I also have a hard time feeling pity for “refugees” when they scream “Allah Akbar” with pipes and sticks during rallies in Germany.
  • In addition, what “poor refugees” do you know that savagely attack a mother and her daughter?
  • Another thing I’m finding it hard to wrap my mind around is the “poor refugees’ ” talking trash to cops, screaming “f-ck you” and throwing their relief aid to the ground?
  • To add to this list, why would these “needy souls” orchestrate an attack in the Eurotunnel? That’s a strange choice, eh?
  • I hate to be negative, but I have to ask, how come these “suffering folks” overrun a hospital and stab doctors in their host country? Also, why haven’t we seen this on CNN and FOX NEWS? That’s also wa-wa-weird.
  • And finally, why doth the “unfortunate” file lawsuits against their welcoming governments for not coughing up cash quick enough?America Never Forget

Look, I’m all for helping people who wish to flee from some Suckistan and live free instead of with peeps stuck in the 7th century who believe that if they blow up innocent people that Allah is going to award them 72 chicks who don’t know to get their groove on; but the vast majority of what I’ve seen screams the opposite.

Are they indeed “poor refugees”? Well … I believe they’re poor in this sense of being morally bankrupt. In relation to their being persecuted “refugees”, I got to call BS on the vast majority of those supposedly “fleeing”. Looks more like “infiltrators’ ” preying on westerners’ multi-culti stupidity to this old redneck.Islam is NOT

But I digress.  Let’s go back to WWJD, shall we?

From what I’ve read of Jesus’ teachings, I don’t see him shaming good folks into helping murderous and religiously implacable hordes. Nay, I do not believe for one holy second that Jesus would let these enemies of humanity into any place other then hell for their delusions and deadly intent.

How do I draw such a conclusion? Well … it’s from this thing called reading “The Gospel” and drawing a conclusion, based on the entirety of Christ’s teachings regarding his nature and character. When I read, say, Matthew 23 I see Jesus’ being divinely intolerant of rude, bigoted, divisive, self-righteous, and murderous religious people who were a fraction of what Islam is. Yay, if the Jesus of the scripture poured anathemas upon the Pharisees, I’m guessing he would really lambaste impenitent Islam.  But then again … that’s just me and my read of the scripture.

Oh, and by the way, in case you need proof regarding all the atrocities I lined out about the “poor refugees” in the aforementioned bullet points, well here it is. Enjoy.

One last thing: Weren’t the Boston Bombers also considered “poor refugees” at one time?

GOD’S WORD TO PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS: ‘I Will Curse Those Who Curse You’

Written by Doug Giles on July 14, 2014

On December 7th, 1983, at twenty-one years of age, I became a Christian.  My conversion was similar to that of Saul of Taurus’ in that it was Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 12.24.33 PM 1radical, dramatic and I didn’t come willingly.  No, I didn’t hear voices from heaven, I wasn’t on horseback, and no, I didn’t receive some apostolic anointing.  My point is that I sure as heck wasn’t on some spiritual quest looking for answers to life’s deepest questions when God collided with moi.

Rather, I was looking to get high, get laid and get by and that was it.  I didn’t want to be good, better my life, or follow Jesus.  I was a Judas Priest, Hell Bent For Leather-type who was one audition away from the lead role in Beavis and Butthead.  Yes, I was a Beavis.  But God had other plans for my life and dragged my sorry backside into his glorious kingdom on that fateful day, and I am forever grateful for that.

Being a hellion who’d never been to church until several months after I became a Christian, I wanted to share my new found faith and transformation with my unwashed buddies that I ran with and also with those whose lives I had greatly destroyed via me advocating they do the bad, oft times, criminal crap that I did. 

Several of my running buddies were converted to Christ via my testimony.  Several of them were stunned by my tale and several of them told me to ‘blank off’ and decided to deride my conversion and decry the gospel, Jesus, and the existence of God.

A couple of my ‘friends’ actually attempted to get me back to the dark side by sending hot chicks to seduce me and tried to

tempt me with some of the most potent skunkweed on the planet and some of the best Peruvian flake known to mankind.

Knowing my weakness towards the twain, I did what any weak believer would do and got the heck out of Dodge and away from those soul traps.  Of course, they called me a ‘pussy’  and mocked me as a ‘dumb-ass’ that was ‘missing the best partying years of my life.’

Once I started going to church, I would tell my older Christian bros about the brutal verbal dress down I was getting from guys and gals who weren’t too keen on me following Christ. My elder brethren would tell me that I was ‘Blessed when I got persecuted’ (Mt.5:10) for following the way of the Master.  They would tell me, ‘Let the morons mock, just stay your course and God’ll pay you back for your faithfulness to him amidst opposition’.  So, being the Texas Christian that I was, I cowboyed on not giving a crap about what folks thought as I sought to please God rather than men.

Fast-forward thirty-one years to 2014.

As a fifty-one year old Christian, who has had massive highs and deep abasing lows in the last three decades following cp 11God, I can tell you young squabs that are new in the faith, that God has blessed me indeed.

From the grace that sustains me, to the woman I married, to the amazing alpha daughters He’s given me, to a brilliant son-in-law, to making a living doing what I absolutely love, to world travel, to knowing some of the coolest and most powerful patriots on the planet; this former drug abusing redneck is stunned regarding how blessed he is. I cannot believe that for one second I could have cared what my naysaying ‘buddies’ thought about how I should live, versus living by God’s holy prescription, in light of what I know now.

What’s funny is, looking back in hindsight, when I was getting all the smack for following Christ, my ‘cool’ male and female friends looked like they were having a great time and I looked like some freak staying at home, reading my bible and going to studies while they were out lighting up the town.

Now, with the advent of Facebook, I have had several of these persecutors who tried to get me away from God ‘friend’ request me.  Some of them I let back into my life; others, eh … not so much.

What’s interesting, especially regarding the ones who gave me the most hell about how I was missing out on all of the fun cp 12by following God, is that for the last three decades, their lives have been utterly cursed.  I’m talking about one horrendous tragedy after the other, and some of these folks are doing the same stupid junk we used to do on weed and Lone Star back in high school.  Several of the smarmy God bashers are now dead, having died horrendous, godless, deaths.

Which brings me to this point, young Christian:  never give a flying flip what some person thinks about how you should live your life.  That’s between you and the word of God.  Stand your ground.  Walk alone if you have to.  Blow off the blowhards who crap on your convictions and your desire to reach higher and deeper and follow God fully.  God will bless you tremendously and will sort your enemies out, for sure.

Lastly, this warning goes out to those who ridicule and persecute those who have an unfeigned faith in Christ Jesus: I’d watch what you say and I’d think twice before mocking a sincere believer, because God has foresworn to curse those who curse his followers (Gen.12:3).  What I have seen via Facebook and through the grapevine is that God keeps his word and his paybacks are … well … you know what they say about paybacks.

RAW CHRISTIANITY: This Column Is Rated NSFW (Not Safe For Wussies)

If Christians would toughen up a bit, get out of the religious closet, follow their faith instead of their fears, and live their beliefs in a more robust way, we would once again change the face of this nation more drastically than Kim Novak’s plastic surgeon altered her mug. Maybe that’s a bad analogy. But you get my point.

Hey Christian, why don’t you go public with your faith? Why don’t you work what you supposedly believe into your sphere of influence, huh, PC JC man? Come on, Dinky – true faith is resilient. It can handle scrutiny. It has answers for tough questions. It has solutions for societal pollution. It wants to go play outside.

Look, if the believer really wants to change things that he feels are detrimental to both the soul of man and the soul of our nation, and not just blather on about how bad things are then he must embrace four spiritual qualities. Yes, the following four points were common denominators, fundamentals that Christians have joyfully lived for hundreds of years around the globe, principles that eventually caused the land in which they dwelt to be changed for the better. If you live, eat, sleep and breathe these four things for a few decades, history states that you’ll watch their positive impact on the course of your life, your church and your nation.

Are you ready for this? I knew you were:

1. Incorporate what you believe into your daily grind. 2. Bump up the quality of your spiritual experience. 3. Get a passion for effective action. 4. Labor for personal, ecclesiastical and national reform.

BTW: 1-4 have been borrowed from J.I. Packer and abused by me.

1. Incorporate what you believe into your daily grind.

Look, we’re not going to change our nation if we compartmentalize our faith and relegate our Christianity to once a week ditty. Where Christianity has historically rocked, its adherents saw no incongruities between their sacred worship and their secular work.

Martin Luther, the 16th-century Augustinian monk who shook all of Christendom like a bowl of liposuctioned fat, said the Christian was worthless until he could vibrantly live a profane life, which means in the Latin, outside the temple. Luther not only brought clarity to the gospel message, but he also catapulted believers beyond the stained glass walls of the Church, exhorting them to be salt and light in places where they might be skewered and lampooned. Yes, Martin re-tabled the New Testament notion that the secular environment was not to be avoided because it was bad and that all creation is sacred so all activities are to be done to the glory of God.

Listen: true spirituality is incredibly practical, robust and workable no matter where you dwell or what you do. If your spirituality/Christianity isn’t viable and stout in the most difficult of cultures, then it ain’t the stuff Moses and Christ sold.

To help you take your Christianity out of the Christian ghetto where the secularists would love you to remain, here’s a simple can do: start to see life as a whole. Begin to merge, as J.I. Packer says:

· Your Christianity with culture,

· Your contemplation with achievement,

· Your worship with work,

· Your labor with rest,

· Your fasting with a Foster’s,

· Your love of God with love of neighbor and self,

· Your personal identity with social identity

· Your wide spectrum of relational responsibilities with each other in a thoroughly conscientious and considered way.

Try that next week, next month and the next few years, and watch your influence spread like butter. And you can be certain that such a resurrection of a hearty Christianity will definitely tick the sassy secularist off and get Satan’s panties in a wad.

2. Bump up the quality of your spiritual experience.

If, as a Christian, you want to have true influence upon culture, then you must deepen your soul’s relationship with God and refuse to be simply denomination-centered, success-oriented, self-indulgent, and repellently corny. This type of me-monkey religion might be en vogue with an immediate aberrant version of the faith, but hear me loud and clear: such a “faith” is a farce and not the force Christ intends it to be. I know that’s tight, but its right. Yes, shallowness and sappiness keep you from impacting the real world, where the big boys live and play. And as far as I’m concerned, being a spiritual force and not a ridiculous farce is what having a robust faith is all about.

Believe it or not, no matter what you’ve seen on Christian TV, the believer is a creature of thought, affection and will. God’s primary way to up the robusticity of the human heart is via the human head, by the principal means of the scripture. Having a profound and extensive knowledge of the scripture, coupled with contemplation and application of the Word to one’s person, will naturally cause one to move into substantially deeper waters.

Now, wouldn’t it be great to see a Christian of significant spiritual substance brought back to the Church? One who worships rationally and resolutely with ardent devotion to Christ and is completely comfortable out of a stained glass environment? Imagine having a believer who is serious about the law without becoming a legalist and who enjoys his Christian liberty without becoming Ted Kennedy on St. Patrick’s Day.

3.  A passion for effective action.

Wherever and whenever Christians forcefully delivered a holy spiritual punch to the demonic gut and brought life, light and liberty to people and places, it was because they had dreams without being dreamy. They had a practical faith which worked in the mud, a faith that was not nebulous, vapid, ridiculous or insipid. They were people who were supernaturally natural, who did not forego working in this world to be caught up in the world to come.

When Christianity has been a contender within its culture, the Church has had low tolerance for the lazy, passive, airy and indecisive disciple who thinks it’s not his job to change the world. Savory Christian cultural architects actually believed God’s will should be done on earth as it is in heaven, and thus clipped along at an energetic pace, establishing Christ’s view of justice, mercy and righteousness.

Today, too much of the Church can be characterized as pessimistic and passive, always willing to believe the worst as long as it takes as little energy as possible. The beliefs that societal wrongs cannot be corrected because the world is supposed to slide into an anti-Christ-run keg party, or that the job doesn’t belong to the laity but to the clergy, have left tens of thousands of believers about as active in the world as Howard Hughes was during flu season.

In contrast to the indolent and gloomy quasi-religious crowd, the salvific saints of souls and society have always been set apart by the hope and heat they carry within which manifests in good works without. They know that time is on their side and that their efforts are not going to go unnoticed and ineffectively down the crapper.

4. Laboring for personal, ecclesiastical and national renewal.

As I stated, believers who successfully carried out the creation and evangelistic mandates understood the need for constant rejuvenation. Yes, these believers comprehended the innate spiritual rot, which unsurprisingly and easily crept in on them, their church and their nation.

Appreciative of this nefarious bent, these Christians intentionally and constantly prodded themselves Godward. Yeah, the effective believers who shaped culture stirred up their lukewarm hearts, stifled their lower cortex monkey brain and labored earnestly against the grain for an enriched understanding of God’s truth, stoked spiritual affections, and more resolution regarding their calling in life.

These useful believers were ever mindful of the fact that no matter what a person has accomplished, what a church has done in the past or what our nation has formerly stood for, as long as there are humans involved, there must be the incessant rousing of God’s gifts and graces, or all our progress will derail like an AmTrak and become a fraction of what it could be.

If the church would take a regular hard look at itself now, bolster the things which are great and kick to the curb the crud that impedes us, we would be more fit to powerfully impact the nation in which we reside. A Christian’s desire to biblically better the planet demands that we constantly revamp our graces because of the tremendous task which is set before us. Renewal in the scripture is always preceded by reality, and reality can sometimes be brutal. This is why we avoid it.

The cold hard reality is that our carnal man wants to take hold of God as much as Ted Nugent wants to hold hands with Piers Morgan. As believers, we naturally will go from bad to worse. And as the church goes, there goes the culture. Therefore, it’s incumbent for the believer to be busting his hump to make certain his love toward God, man and that which is holy, just and good never, ever, becomes tepid and tame.

ACCORDING TO THE LEFT: Christianity Sucks and Islam is Awesome

Man, don’t you love how mainstream media and their soft-brain disciples make Christians out to be fish-stickered, bug-eyed equals to incensed Islam? If you were to accept as true what some atheists, secularists and prattling gay activists say about Christians, you’d think the church is chomping at the bit to chop off some heads of unbelievers, glory to Gawd!

Yep, if you were to believe the barf belched out by the BS brokers on the Left, you’d stagger away Kool Aid drunk with the belief that there is little disparity between conservative Christians and militant Muslims.

As a matter of fact, you probably would be bamboozled into believing that Islam is a peaceful, Little House on the Prairie religion being temporarily hijacked by jihadist renegades, and Christianity . . . Christianity is the real charity-vacant, vicious cult that’s vying for the opportunity to seize the whip and whip us good.

Yes, the postmodern reality stylists are working their butts off trying to convince us TV-addled cattle of two primary things:

1) violent jihad is not based on the Koran and

2) All conservative Christians are theocrats ready to burn Katy Perry at the stake, stone Lindsay Lohan in a nearby gravel pit and governmentally ramrod Christianity down everyone’s pie hole.

I haven’t seen this kind of ham-fisted, forced PR, farcical façade being parlayed upon the public since Michael Jackson tried to make out with Lisa Marie in an attempt to convince us all he’d found true love in an adult of the opposite sex.

Look, there’s no denying violent things have been done by the church and in the name of God, but that has been the exception and not the rule. In addition, when the church has spent time with its head up its butt doing bogus things, the church’s leaders have historically owned it when wrong, have not repeated the gaff, have grabbed the wheel and have effectively steered saints out of any erroneous, detrimental ditch.

Not so with Islam.

In Robert Spencer’s book, Religion of Peace, Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, Bob shows those who can still be shown anything factual the massive and fundamental differences between Islam and Christianity. They are not equal no matter how much the blah blah blatherers of political correctness purport them to be. Their beliefs are not similar, nor their practices, nor their means to spreading their message—and to think otherwise, postmodern Pollyanna, could cost you your ass.

Spencer points out the crystal clear facts that clash with the current anti-Christian hype such as . . .

  • Most Muslims do not condemn jihad.
  • Christianity and Islam have neither similar traditions nor similar modern realities—Christian religious violence, real or imagined, does not mitigate the reality of jihad.
  • A “Christian theocracy” in America is a figment of the Left’s imagination.
  • The Islamic world has never developed the distinction between religious and secular law that is inherent in Christianity.
  • Christianity has embraced reason—and Islam has always rejected it.
  • The Koran does not invite interpretation, and Muslim leaders refuse to discuss how to fit their beliefs into modern society.
  • Political differences and unwanted international interference are not, in fact, the cause of the turmoil in Iraq and Middle Eastern antagonism towards the west.
  • Jews, Christians and peoples of other faiths (or no faiths) are equally at risk from militant Islam.
  • The most determined enemies of western civilization may not be the jihadists at all, but the leftists who fear their churchgoing neighbors more than Islamic terrorists.

Listen, 21st century truth reconstructors . . . you’ve gotta relax. Please do us all a favor and go get healed from your bad Sunday school experience and lay down your church grinding axe. Thinking people aren’t buying the “Christianity = Islam” smack.Get real, Goofy. You and I both know that regardless of what a few loopy CINO’s (Christians in name only) have done via violence in the name of the Father that it is not in the body of Christian doctrine to hack off the noggin of the obstreperous. There’s not even an obscure passage in the Book of Revelation that some demented clod could twist like your Gumby doll to make the Christian scripture green light your demise or anyone else’s. Additionally, Christians aren’t longing for TBN to replace DC as our nation’s headquarters.

So chill, you shrill shredders of Christianity.

On the flip side, it is within the pages of the Koran to convert, conquer or kill non-Islamic people. And I’m a thinkin’ that no matter how much you work to besmirch Christianity and misinform on behalf of militant Islam, that if they had it their way, you, the secularist, would be a deceased grease stain on God’s green earth.

Therefore, gay guy, loosen that neckerchief and relax on the anti-Christian rhetoric, okay? Atheists, dial down and go back to studying monkeys (or whatever you do) and secularists, switch to decaf and exhale because you guys are barking up the wrong tree in trying to paint Christians as a coercive, could-be-violent, cabal like, militant Islam.

Radical Muslims, on the other hand, are the ones you need to sweat—because their book has zero tolerance for the likes of Katy or Lindsay—or anyone for that matter, who doesn’t lock step. You can bet your backside that if uncut Islam were in charge, Camille Paglia would be history, Drew Barrymore would be nevermore and Andrew Sullivan would never see the sun again.

The Judeo-Christian worldview (and subsequently, the great western traditions it under girds) is the only powerful cudgel in existence to ward off militant Islam. That’s what makes the Left’s lies about Christ’s Church and the Left’s desires to diminish it so diabolical. If the church’s presence and power gets marginalized via these secularists’s anti-Christian propaganda, then all I’ve got to say is, “I hope everyone is cool with wearing burkhas.”

THEY HATE GOD: The Real Root of Atheists’ Anti-Christmas Rage


http://clashdaily.com/2013/12/hate-god-real-root-atheists-anti-christmas-rage/#C2riiKE2E3VbC8cH.99

By / 5 December  2013

Why do some atheists embarrass themselves year after year trying to eradicate  Christmas from American culture? Why do they make themselves societal  hemorrhoids during this hallowed season? Is it because they are crusaders for  equality, secularism’s saviors and humanism’s heroes? I’m sure that’s what they  tell themselves when they’re pouting on their couches all alone on Christmas Eve  after every single one of their friends has dumped them for being a rabid  jackass.

I believe, however—and I could be wrong—that the reason some rage against the  machine is that they hate God and love their sin, and bringing up Jesus in  December is not the way they wanted to finish off the year. Indeed, Christ  really rains on their parade … and they love their parade.

Christmas, if you really get down to the brass tacks of it, isn’t about  reindeer, elves, iPhones or Lindsay Lohan punching a gypsy, but about mankind’s  sin problem and what God did to remedy it by sending His Son.

I know the chief facet most people focus on regarding Christ’s birth has been  the peace on earth and good will toward men stuff, but if you dig around in the  gospels a tad you’ll quickly see that the “peace on earth” thing is an ancillary  perk to the main reason the second person of the godhead donned an earth suit  and decided to hang out with us dunderheads. The core cause that necessitated  Jesus’ incarnation was our jacked up carnality. Yep, Hambone, it was our sin.  There, I said it. Sin. Yours, mine and ours.

Transgression was the reason for the season.

This is why El Diablo didn’t pass out cigars at Jesus’ birth. Happy he was  not that the Son was not only going to address our sins but He was going to  eternally and temporally salvage those who believe from sin’s fetid effects.  This is why slewfoot energized Herod to put a hit out on the Nazarene when He  was a wee little baby and why Satan’s demon inspired ilk are anti-Christmas to  this day. Jesus’ birth equated to Satan’s demise.

This is not good news to some, though. Indeed, many atheists are up front  about it and don’t want to leave their wantonness. As Jesus Himself said, they  prefer darkness to light and don’t like to be reminded of their personal  accountability for their sin—and thus their need for salvation—and therefore we  should not expect them to be stoked about Jesus’ birthday party. (John 3:19-20)

This is easy math, folks: A person who has no remorse and thus no desire to  repent from their sins is probably not going to be a big advocate for the  celebration of the person who reminds them they’re wrong and calls them to  repent and believe.

Call me goofy, but I’m forever grateful for Jesus’ birth, His attesting  miracles, His sacrificial death, burial and resurrection. While most atheists  this Christmas will be drinking to forget, I will, as Martin Luther said, drink  to remember the One who was and is and is to come.
