If you want to practice Islam in the inconsequential, semi-secular sense. Fine. But the only way to solve this problem is to recognize that POLITICAL Islam and anyone who follows its prescription is inherently incompatible with Western values.
• Want sharia courts? You're not welcome.
• Think it's okay to marry a six year old? You're not welcome.
• Think it's okay to strike your wife for ANY reason? You're not welcome.
• Believe in ANY kind of punishment for apostasy? You're not welcome.
• Believe in ANY kind of punishment for "blasphemy"? You're not welcome.
These are the kinds of values that progressives would defend against any radical Christians who believe any of the above. And rightfully so. So why can't we all agree on these universally? Anyone who holds any of those beliefs is by definition, incompatible with the Western world.
People are giving President Trump crap for calling them "losers." Listen, the guy isn't eloquent, but he's right. These terrorists fear shame more than death. It's why Abu Ghraib was such an outrage when American, female soldiers stripped them naked and laughed at them while dogs barked. To them, that is a far greater punishment than death or even torture. If any American received said treatment at the hands of ISIS, we'd thank the Lord above that we weren't being burnt alive in cages. We don't merely punish terrorists through death. We punish them through shame.
At least ONE leader is willing to give it the old college try. So today, I stand with the president of the United States instead of trying to mince words on social media and virtue-signal about how much "unity" we need. We don't need "unity". We need an alliance. There's a difference.
The Western world needs to ally themselves against the evil that is political Islam. To unite with it's practitioners would be to unite with evil. Anyone who sees that as a virtue is simply enabling evil and by proxy, is evil themselves.
