Why outlaw Islam? For the same reason we recommended Outlawing Marxism. There is and can be no middle ground between Marxism and the American Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution. There can be no compromise here. There is no room to negotiate. You cannot meet any Marxist notion, such as Equality Via Redistribution, part way and still support the Declaration and the Constitution. The same things can be said of Islam. Being forced to submit and convert, become a specially taxed slave, or be executed, is not compatible with the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
America has always been a nation of free-wheeling free-thinkers. We have here legally established rights to freedom of speech, press, religion, assembly, petition, etc. That’s why some of our debates get pretty heated on occasion; over time we become more and more diverse in our thinking and life direction. This diversity of thought has good points and it has bad points, which can be argued well from either standpoint. However, when one ideology arises among the many that seeks and intends to replace all other ideologies and establish itself as the supreme ideology, destroying all opposition, we need to pause and study it. That thinking does not fit the American model, because it would in the future deny the very freedom that protects it today.
Do we want to remain the Constitutional nation as founded, or do we want to become something else? Question: Is our national foundation – the Declaration of Independence – and is our defining legal document – the Constitution – worthy of preserving intact, with all of our citizen rights, or is it time to replace it all with something else?
Now, everybody wants to tip-toe around any notion of outlawing Islam because of the religion clause in Amendment I of the Constitution. However, Islam is not merely a religion; it is a theocracy – a radical combination of Church and state. And, it is not merely a theocracy, but an aggressive, domineering and barbaric theocracy hell bent on forcing the entire world into submission to itself.
What this means is that Islam seeks not only to convert everyone to the religion of Islam, by any means necessary including force; but Islam also seeks to transform every other government and every other legal system into absolute submission to Islam. That necessarily means the end of not only our religion, but the end of our Declaration of Independence and the end of our Constitution, and the end of all of our legislated law. Are you really ready for that?
Islam’s Koran would make a system that is the reverse of all that we are and all that we stand for. Rather than a system of freedom that recognizes the rights of man, those of us who survive would become a conquering horde intent on forcing others into submission to Islam.
I submit that the main theme in the Koran aims at the destruction of America as founded, the negation of the American Declaration of Independence and the negation of the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It aims at the elimination of our religion, our ethos and our morality, and at turning us into enslavers and murderers. We talked about the nature of Islam in the The Last Barbarians Webpage.
We must outlaw the Koran just as soon as we have the legislative power to do it. We need legislation in defense of the whole of the American Ideal, including the Declaration and the Constitution. Islam is just flat out anti-American, and it seeks to destroy all that we have and all that we are. The language is just crystal clear. You can see a short-hand version of the more egregious verses in it in the Tolerating Brutal Intolerance Webpage; or, read the Koran itself. Islam doesn’t make any bones about what it intends to do to us.
Jews and Christians, as “people of the book,” are singled out for special treatment. Early verses seem especially peaceful toward us, but later verses are downright brutal. The reason is that Mohammed failed to win the Jews and the Christians over, and then had himself a little hissy-fit and wrote the later and harsher verses. He did that sort of thing a lot. Moslem theology insists that whatever verses he authored later automatically overrode and superseded any previous verses that they conflicted with. Therefore, the brutal verses are the ones that stand.
All good Moslems are to strike off our fingers and/or our heads, to make a wide slaughter among us, to enslave survivors, to torture us with fire and with boiling water, and to make continuous war against all unbelievers until no other religion exists except Islam. There can be no compromise here. This is held to be the irreformable word of Allah. No one is ever going to negotiate those verses out of the Koran.
No one who holds to Islam, in part or in whole, can honestly take and keep an oath of office involving the defense and safeguarding of the Constitution. These are opposite and antagonistic ideologies. Any elected or appointed official whose office is subject to such an oath should step down or be removed from office. No candidate for any such office who is identifiably Moslem should be held to be qualified for the office.
No member of the American armed forces who holds to Islam, in part or in whole, can honestly take and keep the oath of office for entry into the military, because Islam and the Constitution are opposites and antagonists. Any such member of the military should step down or be removed from uniform. No candidate for military service who is identifiably Moslem should be held to be qualified for service.
People should still be free to talk Islam all they want to; but we need to preclude Moslems from office and from military service, and we need to preclude any Islamic goals from American legislation.
No need to burn Korans as any part of outlawing the Koran, any more than there would be a need to burn the Communist Manifesto if we were to Outlaw Marxism. It is the principles and goals contained in the document that are to be outlawed. Libraries and private citizens should be free to keep the Koran so that people can see what it is. What, then, should be outlawed, besides Moslems holding office or entering the military? What restrictions should there be?
Islam is just as treacherous, underhanded, sneaky and deceptive as is Marxism in seeking to destroy nations from within. Islam slowly builds little enclaves into larger ones, ultimately claiming a territory that it considers to be under Sharia law, and then its attitude changes and becomes more belligerent to the host country. Islam, like Marxism, is a cancer on society. It declared war on the whole of the non-Islamic world over 1,300 years ago, and it’s taken this long for the non-Islamic world to begin to recognize that simple fact. It needs to be outlawed in America.
That’s my argument; what’s yours?

Victor, this is crazy, intolerant and illegal in America. The constitution forbids it as violation of freedom of religion. You cannot “outlaw” a religion in America. Not all Muslims are terrorists; you need to differentiate between good and bad in any religion. Your religion has bad people also, and you cannot outlaw your religion.

I do not seek to outlaw a religion; what I seek to outlaw is a belligerent and invasive theocracy that is committed to world conquest and religious domination.
US Constitution, Amendment I:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
In simple English, this is a legal prohibition on the government, saying that the government may not impose any particular theology on anyone. Every state in America has an Amendment similar to this on in its State Constitution. It is the law of that land, at the federal level and at the state level. (I have always interpreted it to mean further that the government may not impose the theology of atheism on anyone.)
What Islam proposes to do is impose its theology on America, impose Islamic government over American government, and impose Islamic law over all law in America. In plain English, Islam intends to do exactly what it is specifically prohibited by law from doing by Amendment I, and a whole lot more besides.
The Koran clearly directs all Moslems to make war against us until no other religion exists except Islam (2:139; 8:39; 9:29). Are you prepared to stand there in public with your bare face hanging out and tell me either that that order from Mohammed to make continuous war is not in the Koran, or that the words in the Koran are not held by Moslems to be the incorruptible and irreformable words of Allah?
Do you really think we’re that stupid?

You seem to be in direct opposition the Roman Catholic church. The Pope and Vatican Council on Islam:
The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself, merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth (5), who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes great pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting.
Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this Sacred Synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.

I believe I may have quoted those very words somewhere, but I don’t remember where. What they describe are the beliefs and behaviors of the vast majority of Moslems who have not yet really gotten into their own faith sufficiently to have encountered the Islamic call to war, conquest, subjugation and murder – see the Refuting Mohammed page. They also refer to the public words, spoken to non-Moslems by many recognized leaders and spokesmen of Islam. But they do not reflect the more private words of those same men spoken to other Moslems strictly within the house of Islam.
The leadership of Islam thinks we are too stupid to figure out what they intend to do to us, and they appear to be largely correct. “We come in peace” is what they say in English to Western man. But the message is reversed when spoken in Arabic to followers in the Mosques and elsewhere in the house of Islam. If Islam were open, honest and decent, as we understand that word, it would look us in the eye and tell us of its true intentions toward us; but that is not the case. Islam is treacherous and deceitful, just like Marxism. The peaceful Moslem leader holds a sword behind his back.
Ranking clerics, holders of high office, political candidates and all recognized “leaders” in the West seem to feel the need to tip-toe around the issue and speak kindly to and of Islam, to be overly respectful and super-sensitive to the “feelings” of Moslems, and to avoid, with great effort, even discussing the violent history, the violent scripture and the quite consistent violent preaching of Islam. In fact, some of them will publicly deny it.
But I am no cleric, I am no office holder and I am no politician; I treat the issue straight up, directly and openly. It’s right there in front of you in black and white. History is still available to the researcher, despite the efforts of those who would erase it or re-write it. The Koran and the Haddith are available for your perusal.
Islam intends to rule all, in religion and in civil law, pure and simple.

Thanks so much for the kind favor of your reply. You wrote: "What they describe are the beliefs and behaviors of the vast majority of Moslems....
They also refer to the public words, spoken to non-Moslems by many recognized leaders and spokesmen of Islam."
The Vatican Council is not ignorant to what the Quran and Hadith actually say. Nor did they simply parrot Islam's ignorant minions, or taqiyyah practitioners, but instead went so tragically far beyond that.
Read it again.
"They adore the one God... they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees..."
Now you and I know that couldn't be more UNTRUE, since Muhammad, and thus all of his followers, profess the EXACT OPPOSITE of the WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospel.
Surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus... but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them... for of a surety they killed him not"
Indeed the most egregious - and only unpardonable - sin in Muhammad's cult is committed when a Muslim confesses that Jesus is the Son of God.
Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!
1Jo 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
2Jo 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
Surah 9.29 Fight those who believe not in Allah... (even if they are) of the People of the Book... 30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah... Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!
1 John 2:22 ... He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:...
That's 1.5 billion antichrists in the world today - just in Islam - not even counting atheists and other antichrists! The reward?
Jhn 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where THE BEAST and THE FALSE PROPHET [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The Pope and Vatican council didn't say "Muslims BELIEVE they worship the one true God..." or "Muslims BELIEVE they submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees..."
So what they wrote couldn't be more UNTRUE, of which I thought exposing UNTRUTH is the purpose of your site.
What if instead of the cowardly declarations above - and the pope literally kissing the antichrist Quran and even praying in a mosque that points to the Quraish pagan's black stone idol in Mecca, in an act of reconciliation to apologize for the TRUTH that was spoken by one of their own clergy - what if they had offered a genuine Christian response instead?
What if the pope and Vatican council had stood up for Jesus instead, and declared Islam to profess the EXACT OPPOSITE of the WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospel, so all those deluded people that you suggested that call themselves Muslims but remain in abject ignorance to their own religion, could have had perhaps their first opportunity to be shown the truth?
The Pope was in the enviable position of being in the bully pulpit, with the perfect opportunity to begin a massive global dialogue, not unlike when Ronald Reagan went against all of the appeasing liberals and media elite and TOLD THE TRUTH, that the Soviet Union was indeed an EVIL EMPIRE.
If the Pope had done the same, how many Muslims do you think might have gotten that first spark of cognitive dissonance, and the first step to a new heart?
It need not be complicated. It could have been done very easily through the single Quran verse that REJECTS the WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Your brother in Christ Jesus,
(if you could put a couple spaces and maybe 2 lines in my email address in the prior post, I would appreciate it, so internet spiders and bots can't catalog it. Thanks a lot bro.

You are quite correct in what you say. I have disagreed with the Pope before, as shown in The Pope On Globalism page in this site. Let me make three points regarding “the Pope and the Vatican”:
Regarding the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union, John Paul the Great did indeed do the same. He went into the belly of the beast, preaching the Gospel on Communist ground while it was still Communist. It was John Paul the Great just as much as it was Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher who brought down the Soviet Union.
That being said, I still agree with you. The Pope should make a brief, clear and simple statement regarding the true nature of Islam.

I don’t have a whole lot of free time these days, and what little I have is spent right here keeping up with this website. I think at this point, all these centuries after Mohammed, with upwards of a billion practitioners in the world, it is rather foolish to not recognize Islam as a religion. It may be a false religion, but it is nevertheless a recognized world religion, with hordes of convinced followers.
The important thing about Islam is that it is not merely a religion; it is also a theocracy, which is to say, a radical combination of Church and state. And it is not merely a theocracy, but an aggressive expansionist theocracy that seeks to impose itself on all others, by force if necessary. The whole mission of Islam is to grow itself at the expense of the non-Islamic world.

The right to freedom of religion in the US Constitution was put there UNDER THE ASSUMPTION that all religions were BENIGN. "Islam" is NOT "benign"; it promotes "SHARIA LAW", and the MURDER OF and LYING TO "infidels". Very simply, our "rights" DO NOT SUPERCEDE US LAW, or PUBLIC SAFETY; you can't promote "Sharia Law" and the MURDER of "infidels" and hide behind freedom of religion anymore than you can yell "fire!" in a crowded theatre and hide behind freedom of speech. Therefore, "Islam" does NOT fall under the Constitutional protection of "religion". ALL Muslims in the United States should be given the choice between SELF or FORCED DEPORTATION to a Muslim country, or PROSECUTION under EXISTING "RICO" STATUTES. Muslims should not be allowed to immigrate into the US. "Mosques" should be shut down and CONFISCATED the same as the property of DRUG DEALERS and other CRIMINALS. Unfortunately, this isn't going to happen; the "Islamization" of the US IS WELL UNDERWAY. Barry Soetoro (aka "Barrack Obamma") IS A MUSLIM who is LYING (according to the Koran). May the God of Israel have mercy on us. Jesus IS GOD; "Allah" is a fiction.

Actually, as we said in the Refuting Separation of Church and State page, freedom of religion was put into the Constitution to keep Congress from establishing any official national religion, and to not allow Congress to prevent any of the thirteen Colonies from freely worshiping in accordance with the Christian denominations already pre-established as official legal state religions in each Colony, and to allow any citizen to worship or “exercise” in any Christian denomination, in any Colony.
It said (and says) nothing about any “religion” that is also another form of government and another form of law that would superimpose itself over us and over our Constitution. I no longer waste time and effort arguing about Sharia Law, or variants of it, or anything else that is extra-Koranic. It is enough for me that the Koran itself expressly calls for us all to be converted to Islam, subjugated to Islamic law, or killed. That’s what the Koran tells its readers to do to us.
Therefore, I find no disagreement with what you say, as ugly as it appears on its face. We cannot have any new law superimposed over our Constitution, which is intended to be the supreme law of the land. Islam itself is absolutely intolerant of the other. Our own toleration of Islam among us might be suicidal. It might be a bit easier to tolerate Islam over there somewhere, far away from our shores.

America will not be overrun with Islam. If you haven't noticed, we have already been under the control of major religion- CHRISTIANITY. Christian ideals have found their way into politics to such an extent that many of our now "major issues" have Christian ties; abortion, same-sex marriage, etc. How do you look passed these hypocrisies?

You People …
You haven’t been paying attention. Over-running the world is the ultimate goal of Islam, by use of force. There is a world of difference between the methods of Christian evangelization and Moslem conquest.
Maybe you didn’t notice, but America started out a Christian nation and remains a Christian nation. It is our common Judao-Christian Ethos that makes of us a “good people” as Tocqueville described us, and it is that ethos that provides our common moral code, from which we develop our representative civil law.
If our Judao-Christian morality affects such issues as abortion, same sex marriage, etc., that is not hypocrisy; that is as it should be. It is not Christianity, but religions such as atheism and Islam that seeks to impose its will against the Christian majority.
I know how much you despise Jesus Christ, Christianity and Christians in general, but if you want to live among us you’re just going to have to get over it, and deal with us on our terms, not yours. I know how much you love abortion, same sex marriage, etc., but federal law has no constitutional business addressing such issues, regardless of how badly you wish to impose your immoral will on all the rest of us through civil law. Here, states and local jurisdictions make their own laws in accordance with community standards. If you don’t like it where you live, you can move.
If you truly believe that abortion, same sex marriage, etc., are the marks of a brighter, more free future, then your ultimate destination is hell. You may enjoy the journey, but not the destination.

I do not consider Islam to be a proper religion, or a valid religion, or anything other than a fraud. However, with over a billion followers, the vast majority of whom actually think they are following a religion, and probably a majority of the non-Islamic world who also (mistakenly) think Islam is a real religion, it is just pointless to debate the point in almost any public arena. No matter what political, theatrical or other kind of podium you could speak from, you will be ignored or written off as a nut case if you try to convince the world of the invalidity of Islam as a religion.
So what I try to do is emphasize the theocratic nature of it, and emphasize that Islam is a form of government, antagonistic to every other form of government. Islam is a legal system, antagonistic to every other form of legal system. Islam seeks to impose itself on the entire world, by force, and that is what needs to be recognized.
I guess I just hit a point where it seems a complete waste of effort to try to convince the world that Islam is not a real religion. But the threat must be recognized and dealt with.
The non-Islamic world needs to pay attention to what Islam intends to do to them, regardless of their religion or lack of religion. Islam has morphed into an ideology with a plan. Like Marxism, the real Islamic plan is universal.

You have it backwards, my friend. Jefferson feared and despised Islam; that's why he had the Koran published in English; it was to be a warning to all who spoke English.
Here's what I said about it in The Way, The Truth and The Life:
Thomas Jefferson knew that Islam was the mortal enemy of all of Christendom, and all of Western Civilization, and all of the non-Islamic world, and he knew it way back in the 18th century, for heaven's sake. Don't look now, but it is the 21st century, and we are in need of learning this terrible lesson all over again. Jefferson was so alarmed by what he learned of Islam that he personally published and distributed an English translation of the Koran, as a warning to all who spoke English, about what these people intended to do to us.

Are we now so semi-literate that we cannot read with understanding?
