If you're wanting to hear a bigoted, pathetically overbroad stereotyping of a religion and a culture, what better place to go to than a church?
First Baptist Church in Katy, to be exact. They're hosting a speech by Brigitte Gabriel, the rightwing ranter who's made a career out of bashing all Muslims because as you know, all Muslims are terrorists.
We don't know if she will reprise her 2007 speech:
The difference, my friends, between Israel and the Arab world is the difference between civilization and barbarism. It's the difference between good and evil.... this is what we're witnessing in the Arabic world, They have no soul, they are dead set on killing and destruction. And in the name of something they call "Allah" which is very different from the God we believe....because our God is the God of love.
We do know, however, that she will have them there Ay-rabs in her sights.
From the church's announcement of the event:
Without question, the threats radical Islam poses to America have increased, and with the election of a new Congress prospects for positive changes to address this threat are promising.
Brigitte will discuss these threats to our safety and security, such as...
-- The growing threat of homegrown jihad, with the number of such jihadist plots skyrocketing over the past two years.
-- How terrorists are exploiting our porous southern border, often working with drug cartels.
The Muslim Brotherhood threat and how Islamic sharia law is creeping into America.
Sounds like a downer? It's not!!
Brigitte's message will be illuminating, at times disturbing and even shocking -- but ultimately inspiring, empowering, and filled with hope!
So head out to Katy tonight. It's what the God of love would do.
