Religion of Pedophilia

Dallas Pastor:  Islam is a religion that promotes pedophilia!

Steve Blow, a shrieking moonbat from the Dallas Morning News can’t believe it and hastens to the rescue (of Muslim pedophiles):

Dallas pastor’s broad-brush criticism of Islam goes way too far

It’s hard to know where to start in expressing dismay with the Rev. Robert Jeffress – for being uninformed, un-Christian or un-American.

The pastor of Dallas’ First Baptist Church managed to squeeze all three into a recent rant against Islam.

The video clip is available on the church website as if it’s something to be proud of.

Actually, Muslims are proud of the misdeeds of their profit.

Update: here’s Dr. Jeffress Response to Dallas News Columnist/ ripping Steve Blow a new A-shole!

On Aug. 22, First Baptist’s Sunday evening service featured the annual “Ask The Pastor” event. One of the written questions that Jeffress took that night asked about comparisons between Muslim jihad and the Christian Crusades.

Jeffress acknowledged terrible misdeeds by Christians, although he said many have been “overblown.”

He went on to say that Christian atrocities were always contrary to the teaching of the New Testament. “But Muslims, when they commit violence, they are acting in accordance with what the Quran teaches,” he said.

He was just getting started.

He went on to talk about Islam’s oppression of women and how it is “a violent religion.”

“And here is the deep, dark, dirty secret of Islam: It is a religion that promotes pedophilia – sex with children. This so-called prophet Muhammad raped a 9-year-old girl – had sex with her,” he said.

“Around the world today, you have Muslim men having sex with 4-year-old girls, taking them as their brides, because they believe the prophet Muhammad did.”

Finally, his finger jabbing the air, he proclaimed: “I believe, as Christians and conservatives, it’s time to take off the gloves and stand up and tell the truth about this evil, evil religion.”

Where to begin with such broad-brushed nonsense?

Let’s start with uninformed – particularly the outrageous accusation that Islam promotes pedophilia and Muslim men around the world engage in it.

What do experts say?

“No, I haven’t seen that or heard of it,” said Dr. Ryan Hall, a Florida psychiatrist and national authority on pedophilia. “If this were widespread, it definitely would have come to the attention of the medical and legal communities.”

Dr. Robert A. Hunt is a professor of theology at Southern Methodist University and a scholar on Islam. Is he aware of any evidence to support Jeffress’ statements on pedophilia? “None whatsoever,” he said.

While Muhammad did marry a 9-year-old as one of his wives, Hunt said it is unfair to apply modern Western standards across cultures and centuries.

Islamic tradition holds that the girl was chosen by God. (?) She became an important religious figure in Islam as a trusted source of sayings from Muhammad.

I asked Jeffress for the evidence to back up his accusation of condoned, widespread pedophilia and he could only say that he had “read references” to it in a few places.

Well, besides being uninformed, his harsh, condemning comments also seemed un-Christian. And Hunt agreed.

“I can think of three relevant commandments that were violated, starting with, ‘Thou shall not bear false witness,’ ” he said.

“Then I would add, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ And ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ I don’t see how anybody could regard those as statements of love for a Muslim neighbor,” Hunt said of Jeffress’ comments.

And that brings us to the un-American nature of the comments.

In time of war, one of the first duties of those safely back home is to not do or say anything that puts our warriors in greater danger.

We have men and women fighting and dying in Afghanistan right now, and one of their greatest challenges is proving to the people there that they are friends of Islam – that they oppose only violent, radical jihadists who corrupt the religion.

Afghanistan is probably the worst place to prove the pastor wrong:

Hunt explained it this way: “There is a very, very small minority of Muslims – radical Islamists or jihadists, they’re called – and they draw their power from the assumption that Islam is at war with the West and that the West is at war with Islam.

“Anything that appears to make that more credible to Muslims will increase support for the jihadists.”

Do you think it helps for a prominent pastor back home to disrespect Muhammad as “this so-called prophet,” to refer to him and his followers as pedophiles and to proclaim all of Islam an “evil, evil religion”?

And how far do you suppose that video clip has already spread across the Muslim world?

Jeffress told me he can’t worry about his words being used to bolster the terrorist cause. “The truth can always be perverted, but that shouldn’t keep you from speaking the truth,” he said.

Hunt had a very different perspective. “Lying is never helpful, and he was lying,” he said.

About what?

“Everything,” he said.

20 thoughts on “Religion of Pedophilia”

  1. Seems that Steve Blow is just as uninformed as all other Islamophiles and has never even heard of Aisha and the example to all Muslims that Mohammad gave by marrying her when she was just six years old and consummating that marriage when she was just nine. In between times he just ‘thighed’ her i.e rubbed her up and down his thighs for his own gratification. What a ‘perfect’ man Mohammad was and what a shining example for mankind.

  2. Read what khomeni wrote about sex with children .
    And he was / and still is much admired by millions of muslims .

  3. What the good pastor has done to Muslims, by inviting them to Christ, is commit a “terrorist” act against them.

    That’s right. One of the many definitons of “terrorism against Muslims” is to invite a Muslim to another religion.

    Just kindly invite. No bombs, no threats, no guns, no violence. Just speak to them about another religion or philosophy and you’re worthy of death.

    Discourse and free thought and free anything is “terrorism” by islamic standards.

  4. More power to Doctor Jeffress. He is the very first preacher anywhere who has had the guts to speak the truth. We should hog tie our pollies down and force them to listen to this speech over and over again. They need to be brainwashed to get the idea that we can speak out against Islam, that it is violent, that we dont want them in our countries.

    We all know on this site that they are a bunch of filthy paedophiles. We all know the score. FGM and the whole horrible mess they call Islam. Khomeni says its ok to have sex with a 6 month old. glad the old bastard is dead.

  5. A preacher preaching the Gospel is a welcome change from “interfaith dialogue” and “three great Abrahamic faiths worshipping the same God”, and similar nonsense.

  6. Pastors like this could almost get me back into a church.
    Doesn’t the truth have a way of sounding beautiful.
    Kudos,Rev. Jeffress,kudos.

  7. Conceived the Muslim parents who tell the inspiring story of Mohamed and aisha the evening for helping them to sleep…..It’s so Cute and Lovely.

  8. The commenters on the Dallas News site are largely supportive of Pastor Jeffress, and back up their comments with evidence & links much like on WoJ.


    But if you dare call it an honor killing, they’ll cut your head off.
    1,019 women killed for honour over three years]

    [‘Honor killings’ in USA raise concerns
    By Oren Dorell, USA TODAY
    Muslim immigrant men have been accused of six “honor killings” in the United States in the past two years…….]

    [Steve, you are way out of your league on this one. Dr. Jeffress is quite informed on the subject. He does not engage in errors of fact or mere emotional, ad-hominem attacks (“un-American’?) ]

    [You have blown this one, Mr. Blow. It is not just Jeffries, this information is widely available to those whose eyes are open.
    Besides, he was in his own pulpit, talking to his own.
    There are others in town you could interview, the Caner brothers, ex muslims at Criswell. Or, Dr. Sarker, DBU professor who was converted after being sent here to help convert the U.S.– he was beaten by his own in Florida- he is holding a conference in Richardson soon. Let’s see you let your daughter marry into Islam.]

  9. Of course, not all the commenters are supportive, including Mike Ghouse, of “Unity Day USA”, “Parliament of the World’s Religions” and other things:

    [Like a few Americans, Dr. Jeffers has fallen to what is dished out to him without independent verification and bases his ranting on a false premise. There are two translations of Quraan that are false, wrong and hateful towards Jews and Christians; one was deliberately mistranslated for political reasons by the Monastery of Abbey in 1142 and the other one was mistranslated by a Muslim in 1922 for the same reasons in the opposite direction. However, the Arabic version of Quraan is intact and we have 18 translations that are nearly pluralistic.

    At the Parliament of worlds Religions in Melbourne, during my presentation, a Christian Bishop from Jerusalem read the Arabic version of Quraan loud out and did the right translation to the shock of roomful of individuals who were mis-fed with wrong translations thus far.]

    * Fancy that – false translations of the koran – who would have thought? People being “mis-fed”. Someone’s shovelling out garden grunt.

    A challenge to Pastor Jeffress of Dallas

    [At the Parliament of worlds Religions in Melbourne, during my presentation, a Christian Bishop from Jerusalem read the Arabic version of Quraan loud out and did the right translation to the shock of roomful of individuals who were mis-fed with wrong translations thus far.

    For the sake of peace, I would ask the Pastor to hold a conference in his own church on his turf, and I will moderate the discussion “finding the truth about Islam, Quraan and Muhammad” and bring Scholars of Islam including Dr. Hunt, Dr. Esposito, Jewish and Muslim Scholars. Let’s put this thing to an end and have his congregation live in peace and let Muslims live in peace; together as Americans we need the truth and need to live without hate and malice.]

    * I am sure that Pastor Jeffress will know where this “live in peace” (but not in truth) process is leading … straight into sudden destruction:

    “When they say, There is peace and no danger, then sudden destruction will come on them, as birth-pains on a woman with child; and they will not be able to get away from it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3

  11. More insight into Mike Ghouse (versus Newt Gingrich) on Cordoba House:

    [Newt Gingrich:

    …“Cordoba House” is a deliberately insulting term. It refers to Cordoba , Spain – the capital of Muslim conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a church there into the world’s third-largest mosque complex. Mike, please comment – the only thing I can find on the internet is that it was a time for Dhimmi for Christians & others.]

    [Mike Ghouse:

    First of all “Cordoba House” is not an insulting term, on the contrary the Jews have called it the Golden Era and the Non-Catholic denominations from Europe have welcomed it. I have pulled some information from Wikipedia, not a reliable source, but offer some insights. There is an endless amount of information available on the net and I have presented both the positive and negative perspectives. The 1000 year war between France, England and Germany was not labeled religious, though they were bent on annihilating each other, but when one of the parties to the conflicts were Arabs, the Neocons have made it a religious issue for the same story; conquering lands that the kings have traditionally done no matter what religious banner they hid under.

    Islamophobia was born then, to rout the invading kings (every king of the time did that) out, and to inspire their (unwilling) subjects to fight for them, they figured where to hit the Muslims, they paid the Monastery of Abbey to mistranslate Quraan, and called it Muhammadan Cult, that was the first time Islam was called a Muhammadan Religion …]

  12. Mike Ghouse appears to be a “world citizen”, among other things, and
    founding president of the World Muslim Congress …

    [Mike is a Home Builder and a real estate investment consultant … He is Speaker, Thinker, Writer and a Moderator … about Pluralism, Co-Existence, India, Islam, Buddhism, Democracy & Terrorism. ]

    [He is also president of the Foundation for Pluralism and is a frequent guest on talk radio and local television network discussing interfaith, political and civic issues. He is the founding president of the World Muslim Congress with a simple theme: “Good for Muslims and good for the world.”]

  13. Impressive but Dr. Jeffress needs to shore up his facts. For one thing the Crusades were a response to over 460 years of arselifter aggression against the Christian empires around the Mediterranean. I do like his relativistic comparisons, however.

  14. Raymond Ibrahim: New Saudi Fatwa Defends Pedophilia as ‘Marriage’

    Muslim “child-marriage” — euphemism for pedophilia — is making headlines again, at least in Arabic media: Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, a prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, just issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for marriage, and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.”

    Appearing in Saudi papers on July 13, the fatwa complains that “Uninformed interference with Sharia rulings by the press and journalists is on the increase, posing dire consequences to society, including their interference with the question of marriage to small girls who have not reached maturity, and their demand that a minimum age be set for girls to marry.”

    Fawzan insists that nowhere does Sharia set an age limit for marrying girls: like countless Muslim scholars before him, he relies on Koran 65:4, which discusses marriage to females who have not yet begun menstruating (i.e., are prepubescent) and the fact that Muhammad, Islam’s role model, married Aisha when she was 6 years old, “consummating” the marriage — or, in modern parlance, raping her — when she was 9.

    The point of the Saudi fatwa, however, is not that girls as young as 9 can have sex, based on Muhammad’s example, but rather that there is no age limit whatsoever; the only question open to consideration is whether the girl is physically capable of handling her husband/rapist. Fawzan documents this point by quoting Ibn Batal’s authoritative exegesis of Sahih Bukhari:

    The ulema [Islam’s interpreters] have agreed that it is permissible for fathers to marry off their small daughters, even if they are in the cradle. But it is not permissible for their husbands to have sex with them unless they are capable of being placed beneath and bearing the weight of the men. And their capability in this regard varies based on their nature and capacity. Aisha was 6 when she married the prophet, but he had sex with her when she was 9 [i.e., when she was deemed capable].
    Fawzan concludes his fatwa with a warning: “It behooves those who call for setting a minimum age for marriage to fear Allah and not contradict his Sharia, or try to legislate things Allah did not permit. For laws are Allah’s province; and legislation is his excusive right, to be shared by none other. And among these are the rules governing marriage.”

    Fawzan, of course, is not the first to insist on the legitimacy of pedophilia in Islam. Even the former grand mufti of Saudi Arabia supported “child-marriage,” since “the Koran and Sunna document it.”

    Nor is this just some theoretical, theological point; the lives of many young girls are being destroyed because of this ruling. Recall, for instance, the 13-year-old girl who died while her much older husband was copulating with her (it was later revealed that, due to her reluctance, he was tying her up and “raping” her — as if there were another way to describe sex with children); or the 12-year-old who died giving birth to a stillborn; or the 10-year-old who made headlines by hiding out from her 80-year-old “husband.”

    Then there are the countless anonymous girls who do nothing to warrant any media attention — such as die — and have learned to live with their elderly husbands pawing at them, like, no doubt, the girl who married Islam’s most popular cleric, Yusuf Qaradawi, when she was 14.

    What do we make of the fact that it is always Islam’s religious, authoritative voices — not aberrant voices, not “terrorists,” “extremists,” or any other euphemism coined for the occasion — that are constantly demonstrating Sharia’s savageries? Weeks before this fatwa, a female politician and activist in Kuwait called for institutionalizing sex-slavery (recommending that Muslims buy and sell female Russian captives from the Chechnya war); a popular Egyptian preacher not only said the same thing, but added that the solution to Islam’s poverty is to go on jihad and plunder the lives and possessions of infidels.

    Sounds odd? Perhaps; but it is perfectly consistent. After all, distilled and in the eyes of the non-believer, Sharia law is nothing less than a legal system built atop the words and deeds of a 7th century Arab, whose behavior — from pedophilia and sex-slavery to war mongering and plundering — was very much that of a 7th century Arab. Having enticed or enslaved his contemporaries into following him, his teachings continue to entice and enslave their descendants; and, now as then, it is always the innocent who suffer.
