The Left's Misguided Love Affair With Islam

Over the years, we have wondered WHY The Left has been so angry and intolerant of Christians while at the same time being so supportive, tolerant and even apologetic of Islam?

It makes no rational, logical sense.  And for this reason, we have wondered if it is all part of the End Times delusion that the Bible says will be coming.

The Left's Misguided Love Affair With Islam

Why do so many liberals praise a religion that, at its root, is quite conservative, if not fundamentalist?

Why do they defend a faith that would not defend them? Worse still, why do they defend a faith that, in some cases, would do violence to them?

Last week, Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch and a New York Times bestselling author on radical Islam, was invited to speak at the University of Buffalo.

But he was unable to say much because of the vocal opposition. He was shouted down and reviled, especially when attempting to read Islamic texts describing Islamic beliefs.

To paraphrase, "Not on our campus! We are progressive. We are liberal. We are enlightened. You will not bring your hate-filled bigotry here!"

In Spencer's own words, "I spoke a few sentences and made a couple of points in between being screamed at by Leftist and Islamic supremacist fascists who think they're opposing fascism."

Did you catch that? Spencer was opposed by staunch liberals and staunch Muslims. What an odd couple they make, yet this has happened time and again in the recent past. Why?

A few years ago, I read about a pro-Hamas, anti-Israel rally led by feminists and LGBT activists, among others on the left. Why in the world would groups like this support Hamas, which would kill or imprison them for their beliefs (and their sexual or romantic proclivities)?

Spencer noted the biting irony of it all: "For example, one man held a sign that read 'Queers Against Islamophobia.' The crowd booed lustily when I attempted to read from Islamic authorities about Islam's death penalty for homosexuality.

Even to read from Islamic sources is hate, apparently, at the University at Buffalo -- unless, of course, one endorses such penalties rather than oppose them."

Yes, these days, if you expose something murderous or hateful, you are guilty of a worse sin - the sin of judging. And on campuses these days, there is hardly a worse sin you could commit.

I once spotted a comment responding to a YouTube video posted by a 12-year old boy who opposed same-sex marriage based on the Bible. The comment read: "You, just like everyone who is against gay marriage, is a mentally retarded bigot. No exceptions. Now go to hell."

This is the voice of tolerance, the same voice that drowned out Spencer in Buffalo. And how interesting that "tolerance" reviles a 12-year-old boy who does not support same-sex "marriage" but then defends Islam that calls for a death-penalty for homosexual practice.

How interesting that "tolerance" wants to silence Christians who peacefully oppose homosexual activism as well as silence those who draw attention to Islam's violent opposition to homosexuality. What a laughable contradiction.

But this is no laughing matter. As Spencer noted, "By shutting down any discussion of the motivating ideology of the jihad threat and consigning it all to the realm of 'hatred' and 'bigotry,' the student mob at the University of Buffalo enables that threat to grow.

One day, the Leftists who screamed, heckled, and booed as I tried to speak may very well experience the consequences of their actions, carried out by those with whom they thought they stood in solidarity."

Yes, let that mob try pulling off the same stunt in strict Islamic countries like Iran or Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan or in places like the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip, and let's see how far they get.

In fact, let's see how far they get carrying a sign saying, "Queers Against Islamophobia."

The Left needs to end its naïve love affair with Islam.

We don't really know for sure HOW the one-world-religion is going to play out in the very last days following the rapture of the church.  But we do know that for those who heard the Gospel and rejected it BEFORE the rapture....there will be a delusion that God allows them to believe and they will end up believing the lie brought about by Satan and the Antichrist.

2 Thessalonians 2
9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

So is it possible that this delusional behavior by the godless-left is actually a foreshadowing of the great delusion that will be coming for the godless AFTER all followers of Christ are removed to meet the Lord in the air?

And finally, I want to draw your attention to another passage in 2 Thessalonians, verse 3.

Here is the passage from the NIV;
3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.

I recently read an article that dug into the Greek word that the NIV translates as REBELLION.

In some translations the word is translated as FALLING AWAY, as in the Modern English translation;
3 Do not let anyone deceive you in any way. For that Day will not come unless a falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction,

Is it more than possible that the FALLING AWAY is actually referring to the RAPTURE....when the followers of Christ are taken out of this world....when they FALL AWAY from the world to meet Christ in the air?

If this is the case, this one verse would put a nail in the coffin for mid-trib and post-trib rapture theories.

What do you think?  Is Paul repeating the same idea twice that the Antichrist WON'T be revealed until AFTER the rapture?  The 2nd time would be just a few verses later when he tells us that the antichrist won't be revealed until AFTER the restrainer (Holy Spirit living in all born-again Christians) is removed.

7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back (restrains it) will continue to do so till he (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way
