A few days ago, I received an e-mail forward titled “Can a Good Muslim be a Good American? No!” It reminded me of another ludicrous forward I recently received claiming Barack Obama was a Trojan Muslim who endorsed “the radical teaching (of) Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world” and insisted that “the Muslims have a plan on destroying the US from the inside out; what better way to start than at the highest level!”
Incredulous, I was in the middle of typing a snarky response when my brother, who had also received the same forward, sent me a reply that was almost word for word what I was in the middle of typing. You'd almost think we were related. I decided to blend our two answers and post them here. What follows is the original e-mail and my brother’s and my answer.
This is something I've wondered about for some time now: How & why do the Muslims hate us & everyone else so much? Doesn't their God teach them to love? Of course this applies to Canada and for that matter the whole of Western Europe as well.
Can a good Muslim be a good American?
I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.
The following is his reply:
Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia
Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)
Scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).
Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).
Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually - no. Because when we declare "one nation under God," the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 other names.
So, after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both "good" Muslims and good Americans.
Call it what you wish....it's still the truth. And if that equates to "profiling" which is tantamount to murder by the liberals, then so be it. If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements, perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. Pass it on, Fellow Americans. This war is larger than we know or understand. It will take much longer than any one of us anticipates, and the timetables for exiting Iraq are senseless given the mind set of all fanatic Muslims. With the exception of 9-11, London and Madrid, the fight has been there. Should we not continue to keep them occupied and away from our shores?

Can a good Christian be a good American?
Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Jehovah, the Lord God of Israel and never to any mere man.
Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by Jehovah except Christianity.
Scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the Holy Bible and the Ten Commandments.
Geographically – no. Because his God does not recognize borders on maps drawn by men and his followers look for his return in Jerusalem.
Socially - no. Because he interprets his allegiance to Christianity as forbidding him to make friends with homosexuals, women who have abortions, Muslims and all unrepentant sinners bound to burn in a lake of eternal fire.
Politically - No, because they submit themselves only to their God who has been known, on occasion, to call for the total decimation of any country—men, women, children, livestock, etc—who dare to stand against the chosen people.
Domestically - no. Because the Bible commands a wife (or wives) to utterly obey her husband in all things, decrees that children must be put to death for disobeying their parents, that slavery is permissible and that the village is to execute any member who dares to eat shrimp, wear mixed fiber clothing, or sit too close to a menstrating woman.
Intellectually - No, because he cannot accept that the U.S. Constitution is an infallible document (only the Bible, with its thousands of translations and transliterations is completely error free).
Philosophically - No, because the Christian adheres to a Theocracy, not a Democracy, willingly laying aside his State-granted freedoms and rights for the will and commands of God.
Spiritually - No, because the Christian's “loving and kind” God apparently teaches them that there is no better way to spread that love to the unrepentant than with a carrier strike group armed with laser and GPS guided cruise missiles, 2,000 pound bunker busters, and nuclear warheads.
So, after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL CHRISTIANS in this country. They obviously cannot be both "good" Christians and “good” Americans.
Call it what you wish....it's still the truth. And if that equates to "profiling" which is so beloved by this Administration, then so be it. If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements, perhaps you will share this with your friends, so the Justice Department, which tracks you and your friends’ virtual movements, can keep tabs on you. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. Pass it on, Fellow Americans. This war is more idiotic and based on lies than we know or understand. With the exception of a handful of bombed out abortion clinics, the fight has mostly been over there, in Europe—the Crusades, the Inquisition and such. We must eradicate the Christian parasites before they infiltrate our country and even the highest office of our land!
