Our Modern Day Battle of Tours
According to an article by the Associated Press carried in the International Herald Tribune, which is the International Publication of the New York Times, back in February of this year, Great Brittain is now making plans to adopt some form of Shariah law and set up separate Shariah courts to oversee them. You are probably asking yourself the question, "What is Shariah law?" Shariah law is Islamic law based in the Koran. They say that they are going to let Muslims go before Shariah courts while non-Muslims will go before traditional courts. They also, said that Shariah law will only have jurisdiction over divorce cases, domestic violence cases, and financial disputes.
So, what does this mean and what affect will it have? Well, for one it will affect the rights of women to be heard in an unbiased court. According to the Koran a man is entitled to twice as much as a woman in a divorce. Also, wife beating is legal under the Koran. If this is enacted, doctors will not be able to report possible abuse when it comes to Muslim women, because their rights are non-existent under Shariah law. Christianity is the only religion in the world where women are to be treated with dignity and respect (See Galatians 3:28 for reference) and where they have equal footing with men.
Another affect will be in law-enforcement. If you have two different and in many ways opposite legal systems, which one will take precedence? Which one will be enforced? If you enforce one, you will violate the other. Next, the Hindu's and Buddhist's will want their own legal code. And what's to stop it? You see, religious pluralism coupled with political correctness always will lead to legal pluralism and ultimate anarchy and chaos.
Those that have eyes to see and can read the hand writing on the wall know that our beloved Mother Land has embarked on an irreversible course. It is only a matter of time before they are speaking Arabic and are considered a full-fledged Muslim nation. And why? Because Islam is as much a political system as it is a religious system and has been since its inception. It is not satisfied with being one of many religions in a multi-cultural society. It wants to rule and dominate and will wage jihad in order to do so.
Because we have been indoctrinated with multi-culturalism and political correctness since the 60's, we are ignorant and oftentimes willfully of the facts. We need to open our eyes. If the Lord tarries His coming, we are facing a moment in history not unlike the Battle of Tours in 732 A.D. In that Battle Charles "the hammer" Martel turned back the Muslim advance into Europe in Southern France in what I believe to be a supernatural act of divine providence. We too, must turn back the tide. We must wage an idealogical war and educate people concerning the true nature of Islam and its prophets. We must turn back the tide for the sake of the Gospel. America is normally only 10-15 years behind England. For the sake of our children and our way of life, we must get involved in this culture war that's raging. Our very freedom is on the line!
