But Jesus freak?
An opera director in Russia, named Boris Mezdrich, designed a painting for an advertisement for one of his plays, in which a crucifix is placed in between the legs of a woman. This enraged the pious Christians of Russia who gathered together by the thousands to protest against the opera. Putin and his administration had the director fired from his job for blaspheming against our Lord Jesus Christ, and rightfully so. I did a whole video on this:
This video is lengthy, but at about 10:28 Theodore Shoebat, son of the esteemed critic of Islam, Walid Shoebat, says something that should disturb all of us.
“God bless Russia, is all I can say. Keep going and, God willing, Russia will continue in its endeavor… get these [homosexual] deviants and do not let them take over your state… God willing, people in America and Western Europe will learn that what the Russians are doing is absolutely correct…”
Whoa! Hold it right there. Russia should “keep going in its endeavor” to silence speech and prosecute or sue people who offend Jesus Christ or Christians?
How is this familiar? Fundamentalist Islam silences its critics through Sharia law for exactly the same thing: speaking ill or otherwise blaspheming the Prophet Mohammed and offending Muslims.
Of all people, the Shoebats should know this, since Walid Shoebat converted from Islam to Christianity and is subject to death under most interpretations Sharia law.
In France, legendary film actress Brigitte Bardot has been prosecuted repeatedly for publically criticizing Muslims. In Denmark Muslims issued a fatwa against cartoonists for drawing Mohammed. Need we remind anyone what happened at Charlie Hebdo? These countries have laws severely limiting speech.
I get a little tired of some of the Vlad worship I’m seeing on the Right these days. Vladimir Putin is a totalitarian thug who does nothing without a personal motive. He has almost without question had his detractors murdered for daring to question or criticize his authority.
Vladimir Putin is what happens when republican democracy loses the debate with men like Barack Obama.
For Christians to advocate the fascist silencing of speech because some pervert on the Left has offended them, is far more dangerous than the offense they are attempting to silence.
I will concede that homosexual activists are waging a war, not for their civil rights, but for universal acceptance of their deviant lifestyle. I will also admit that they are waging that war very effectively. They offend me deeply.
But trying to silence them in the same way the Left and Islamist extremists silence their detractors? If you offend our God, we’ll sue you out of business, or worse, prosecute? No thank you. I respectfully disagree with Theodore Shoebat.
The protests in Russia and the public outcry of the Church against the sacrilege of this opera and its producer worked. He was fired, albeit by oligarchic regime. But why in God’s name would any Christian not realize the danger in silencing the man’s right to think and say what he believes?
If Jesus’s shoulders aren’t bigger than that, then Christian conservatives are in way more trouble than they think.
Fighting against the Left and its immoral agenda may be frustrating but winning can only be accomplished through the continuing exposure of its true nature and goals.
Robert Stacy McCain, the Shoebats, and other conservatives are carrying on this fight everyday, and God bless them for it.
And we must all do it, and continue to do it.
But what America does not need is “Christian Sharia.”
Or a Stalinist state to enforce it.
