The reason that liberals hate Christianity, but ignore Islam

Today, I read one thing and wrote another, both of which address Leftist hatred for Christianity, even though modern Christianity and genuine Judaism (as opposed to the hard Leftism that masquerades as “reform Judaism”) are the most humane, civilizing forces the world has ever seen.  With their focus on justice and grace, they rid the world of slavery, ended child labor, advanced women’s status and, in Israel’s case, fought a 60-year war without sinking to the level of her enemies.  But the Left truly hates them and seeks to undermine them at every turn.

The article I read on this subject is Benjamin Wiker’s “Why aren’t liberals more critical of Islam?” In it, he posits that, because secularism arose within and in opposition to a Christian Europe and America, Christianity was its original enemy.  Giving proof, however, to my repeated claim that “Progressives” are actually profoundly “regressive,” secularists (i.e., Leftists) continue their battle with Christianity despite that particular war having ended long ago. Judaism and Christianity absorbed the better parts of secularism while holding on to their core religious principles.

    Bigots and leftists (but I repeat myself) aren’t that complex or intelligent. They hate Christianity because it’s White People’s Religion and because of its influence on their great Satan, Western Civilization.

    • Jim Fox

      You, also are ‘not that intelligent’. Bigot, however, fits you quite well…

      • Xavier

        Struck a nerve, eh?

        You, also [sic] need to learn how to punctuate.

        • Jim Fox

          No nerve struck Xavier- I don’t *hate ~xtianity; just don’t care for your wild assumptions. And a redundant comma won’t define “civilization”.

    islam is a supremacist totalitarian doctrine of conquest.. ban it an we will have peace.

    • Jim Fox

      Islam will have to be fought to destruction. It can’t be effectively banned.

      • infedel

        True. Banning is a first step. Then stop all trade with islam countries; like they will survive. Then the only thing left is mecca…we can do that from space.

        • Jim Fox

          “mecca…we can do that from space”

          Oh, how I would love to see that!

    “… better parts of secularism”??
    Secularism took from Judaism and Christianity the bits with which it was comfortable, and which meshed with its natively invented “principles”.
    The bits which Judaism and Christianity have unfortunately borrowed from secularism are the ideas and adolescences which are intended to destroy both.

    Cheers

    • So you’d prefer to live in a world where the Church had a huge amount of political power?

      • Minicapt

        Given what the other side offers …

        Cheers

        • This is not my notion of civilization.

          • Minicapt

            Whether you like it or not, the basis of the civilisation you apparently prefer is based on traditional Judeo-Christian principles, including the idea of keeping the church and the state out of each other’s pockets.

            Cheers

          • Sure, but it’s ridiculous to pretend that the Enlightenment is no big deal.

          • Minicapt

            The Enlightenment wasn’t.

            Cheers

          • Oh, okay. Good to know. I thought it was kinda significant, but that was pretty devastating.

          • Minicapt

            Try starting with Thomas Aquinas, to see from whom Diderot and his buddies tried to out-think. They were under the impression that removing the foundations of philosophy would make their edifice stronger and more functional.

            Cheers

          • I’m not saying Thomas Aquinas was stupid. I’m not saying that nobody ever had any significant thoughts before c. 1720. I am saying that the Enlightenment has had rather a profound impact on our lives and on the world. I’m also suggesting that you wouldn’t want to turn back the clock.

            You know, it’s four in the morning where I am. I really do wonder about my own priorities. Maybe I can find someone to explain them to me.

          • Minicapt

            We shall have to remain in disagreement.

            Cheers

    The Left hates Christians and Jews because JudeoChristianity is a more attractive and powerful ideology and therefore their chief competitor for hearts and minds, and souls. The Left wants people to be dependent on government for everything, not on God.

  • BillyHW

    The Left hates Christianity because it’s true.

    • Jim Fox

      True, eh? There’s an interesting claim!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Christianity hasn’t been a supranational political force in the west for 400 years. Islam is one such now. That’s why. Leftists have tried anarchism, Marxism, communism, fascism, the EU and now Islam. Not because of what it does or says or means but because of the power it give them as an force to erase nation states which is what their goal has been since the mid 19th century.

  • Dr ExCathedra

    Liberals give Islam a pass because it is a Third World Non-White religion and the heart of the WhiteLiberal religion is self-hatred and an adoring Submission (Islam) to the colored peoples of the world. It’s not complicated. Islam is coded as a race. And they hate Christianity because a) it’s the container of their own hated people’s past and b) it told them they could not fuck whoever they wanted.

    • Jim Fox

      NO. Leftist ideologues give Islam a pass because they are shit-scared of it.

      • Dr ExCathedra

        Glad you set me straight on that. Words in caps are always so much more compelling as an argument.

  • Jim Fox

    “secularists (i.e., Leftists)”… Rubbish! As an atheist/secularist [call it what you will], I am most certainly NOT a Leftist. I detest Islam and all it stands for- violence, supremacy and victimhood.

    SO, stop this false charge; I assess religions by their actions and Christianity is relatively benign compared to that other ‘religion’.

  • Evil Brad

    Not all secularists are leftists or even liberals. Plenty are quite conservative.

    • Jim Fox

      Well said- too many make these false generalisations.

  • Gary

    Wynne, Barbara Hall and the TDSB allowed that jew-hating pro-sharia homophobic mosque in the Valley Park Public school .

    One day these 3 stooges will see the difference between a Christian fundamentalist and an Islamic fundamentalist .
