A friend sent me this from a Muslim online group:
It’s an amazing thought, isn’t it… that every single thing created is in a state of worship to God. It’s just us humans that seem to have a problem in submitting entirely.
Comments from Christians, both clergy and lay believers, gave a hearty “Amen” to the above. There are two takeaways from this. Firstly, the animals have a relationship with their Creator proper to their state. God chose not to reveal that to us. Secondly, most Muslims aren’t terrorists or support terror… they’re just ordinary believers like the rest of us. We should be vigilant towards Islamic extremists… just as we should have a care with Christian extremists.
Most Christians are content to live in a secular state. I confide that most Muslims think likewise. Sure, the loud Sharia extremists get all the airplay… it plays into the script of the oligarchs, which is all about repression of all of us, not terror at all. Oppose extremism of all sorts… oppose divisive “diversity” whilst one upholds real diversity. Oppose Upper Middle “tolerance” whilst you play cards with the Muslim family down the block. In short, be grounded, pragmatic, and focused. That’s the ticket.
