Angola has become the first country in modern times to officially ban Islam.They have not done it because they fear the terrorist threat, and they have not one it because the are worried about Islamification of their nation. According to the Minister in charge, it is because Angola is a Christian nation and therefore has no place for Islam.
For a religion to be recognized in Angola it must have more than 100,000 followers, and it seems that just now there are not that many; so they have shut down and begun destroying the 80 Mosques that already exist.
There is nothing wrong with a nation being of any particular religion, whether it’s Christian, Hindu, or even Islamic, but it is important to realise that a national religion is just as much about culture as it is about the faith. Many Western nations may have non-believers, but if they were brought up in that culture than odds are they are “culturally Christian”, even if they don’t like the term.
Many talk about how their values are based on reason, not religion, but the reality is that it is Christianity that has instilled these values. If you want proof, look at nations that were not notionally Christian, for example, Islamic nations. They have different cultural beliefs and different values. The values of respect for ALL people, honouring women as free people are distinctly Christian (the freedom for a woman to choose her husband was hard won through the Christian church in the 12th Century.
So well done Angola. You are respecting your cultural history and the values of your people. Shame that our countries don’t do the same.
There is something EXTREMELY dangerous incubating inside our communities… I cannot simply remain silent on this any longer.
The Muslim Brotherhood, the party and movement that Obama so repulsively revered, is undoubtedly an incubator for homegrown terror in the US.
Here is the problem put simply: An Islamist is a radical Muslim is a “moderate” Muslim – they are all the same – and just because parties like the Muslim Brotherhood preach non-violence doesn’t mean they’r peaceful at all, because talk is cheap, and while they sell garbage as gold to the naïve liberals of our societies, they are polluting the minds of the next generation of violent Jihadists.
This is nothing new, unfortunately. We have seen the number of terror attacks committed by violent radical Jihadists increase consistently under Obama, reaching a fever pitch, and to top it off, countries are taking in more undocumented Muslim refugees than ever. This is madness.
The good new is, Muslims are super mad right now. Angola is taking the radical step of outlawing Islam. As a result,there are about 80 mosques in Angola that are about to be destroyed.
This is a direct result of the severe threat posed by radical Islamic terrorism. This country is taking the necessary but difficult steps to contain the violence, crime, and rape that all too often accompany large populations of Muslims. Other nations should carefully consider similar steps before it’s too late. We need an urgent discussion to answer this question: can Islam exist peacefully under the Constitution of the United States?
From BUZZPO :
The African nation of Angola has become the first country in the world to entirely ban Islam. Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva stated that Islam is “contradictory to the customs of Angola culture,” and so it cannot exist in the Christian nation.
“The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human rights,” Silva told reporters. “Their mosques would be closed until further notice.” All of the more than 80 mosques in Angola are set to be destroyed.
Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos called the move “the final end of Islamic influence in our country.” The Angolan government has fully backed the decision, saying that Islam is not a religion, but a sect.
