More of the usual crapola from “Open house educates about Islam” in the Columbia Missourian, with thanks to Skeetstreet:
Jan DeLasara and her sister, Joy Rushing, came to the Islamic Center of Central Missouri’s open house Sunday with different religious perspectives. DeLasara considers herself a spiritual person but is not a member of any organized religion. Rushing is a devout Presbyterian. But both were interested in learning more about Islam.
“It’s an opportunity to get a very close look at a tradition that is pretty alien to me,” DeLasara said.
DeLasara said she has learned that the religion of Islam spans many different cultures.
“I think it’s appropriate for them to stress that they are inclusive,” she said.
Oh yeah, they’re reeeaaaal inclusive. Just pay the jizya and bow and scrape, and you’ll be included all right.
Rushing said she was hoping to learn more about the faith so that she can correct any inaccuracies that non-Muslims may have about Islam…
That’s good of Rushing, for the inaccuracies abound in the face of this magnificent edifice that is Islam. Indeed, so arcane, so difficult, so all-consuming, so burning-the-midnight-oil is this task of studying Islam that hundreds of millions of Muslims themselves have embraced these inaccuracies, and many of them, poor dears, actually think their misunderstanding of the faith is the “pure” item — even though it has led them to miss all the obvious verses enjoining peace and tolerance in the Qur’an and to think their religion requires them to wage war against unbelievers. But never fear! Here comes Joy Rushing into the breach! I am confident that this little problem of global jihad terrorism will be all cleared up within a few weeks.
