Great show, Robert! Please continue to put all of your programs.
Oh, and that last 5 minutes: Wow! What a superb slap down of that muslim dolt!
Excellent education! We all need to know the differences between the Bible and the Qur’an. It is the empty rhetoric of a lot of useful idiots for the global jihad (useful idiots much like those of Stalin, Lennin, Hitler, Khomeini, etc.) that the Bible and the Qur’an are basically the same and that Mohammad’s Allah is the same God of the Bible. Any reasonable person – who has actually read both books – would realize they are fundamentally NOT, but it does help to have someone like yourself point out the differences. Thank you!
BTW: I could not find your show on ABNsat.com. Where is it listed?
While I recognize that you’re a Roman Catholic while I hold to the Reformed faith and hence there’s a fair amount of difference in our readings of the Bible, I commend your exercise.
The most “biblical” part of the Qur’an is the denunciation of disbelief in a God who is know only through his own revelation and preaching a day of judgment. Otherwise, the Qur’an is quite a different book from the one that we Christians revere. It bothers me no end that it is a commonplace of the miseducation of modern Americans that Islam somehow carries on the biblical tradition of the Old and New Testaments.
Where Islam discourages use of the Old and New Testaments by calling them “corrupt” (without a shred of evidence), the Christianity of the New Testament has always affirmed continuity with the Old, and has used it to confirm ethical and doctrinal positions as well as in devotion (note the use of the Psalms). Further, Islam seems to lack the gracious note found everywhere in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Its abuse of the name of Jesus is clearest in its refusal to recognize the incarnation of the divine Logos, his sacrifice for our sins, and resurrection from the dead. The bald triumphalism of the Qur’an and Hadith, in which it is impossible for the people of a prophet to lose (unless they reject the next prophet to come along) is a far cry from the realism about sinful human nature that gives the prophetic warnings of the Old Testament and Revelation their salience.
I pray this project of yours will open the eyes of many.
This was an eye opener. Clearly I have some reading to do.
What I learn is that I have been holding far too rosy a view of the “purely religious” aspects of Mohammedanism. Based on this talk I now see that there can be almost no “purely religious” aspects of Islam.
I particularly appreciated the lucid progression from the absence of a concept of original sin in the Mohammedan version of Genesis, straight to the Islamic notion of human perfectibility through the utopian Islamic state.
It was, also enlightening and depressing to note the absence of a concept of salvation (not having original sin) or any restraining pessimism about the possibilities of perfection in the mortal world.
It all hangs together nicely.
Those star-studded, wonder-filled ends always end up justifying the most horrifying means.
I am coming around, albeit reluctantly, to the conclusion that Islam is an altogether toxic and corrupting doctrine. It’s starting to seem that the poisonous parts are too deeply embedded and interwoven into the whole to be conveniently separated out.
I have no idea what the Muslims are going to be able to do with this mess even if they decide to try fixing it.
Absolutely fantastic, Robert. Articulate, sharp, and fearless as usual.
I think the last outburst by the caller there at the end was his head exploding.
Thank you Mr Spencer. I have been following Jihad Watch for some years now, and we need this kind of education. Those around me just do not understand Islam and the threat it presents to the non-Muslim world.
I’m glad you had someone controlling the sound. It’s pointless when 2 people are talking at once. The caller should indeed be given time to put his points but he must not be allowed to keep interrupting.
An excellent presentation and a very useful demonstration of how Mohammedan apologists should be answered: With calm presentation of hte facts and careful management of their efforts to talk over the response
I wish Islam would be discussed and dissected without reference to Christianity; BOTH are toxic as and when required by their adherents.
Wow, what a brilliant vista! What a great synoptic view of the distinctions between the Christian and Muslim worldviews!
And that last 3 minutes, when Spencer is saying the moral dividing line is within each human being, not between groups, how Christians have done evil, and Muslims have done evil, and demanding an apology from Muslims, talking about how Christianity has the capacity to apologize, to self-criticize, how the pope apologized for the Crusades, how Christianity grants equal rights to all peoples, and how Islam has never granted equal rights to all, and how Muslims have never apologized for all they’ve done, and Robert calling for apologies from Muslims for the centuries of jihad before there ever was a crusade! Magnificent! Robert was on fire there.
