~ IMAGINE, IF you will, that you are a resistance-fighter on trial by the Nazis. You refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the false-messiah Fuhrer, his illegitimate powers, his cooked-up laws and crooked courts, your court-appointed lawyer, who believes you guilty and undeserving of any defence.
That is how the Woolwich Beheader, and the recent Canadian terror-plotter feel. The daily screech from each mosque– “There Is No God But Allah” is not merely a religious statement, but a profoundly political one which affects every aspect of a true Muslim’s life: “There is No God But Allah.. and Sharia is His law”. Islam teaches that the Koran is written directly by Allah; sharia is based on God’s word, and so is divine law.
That is, when it comes to the laws and ways of the kuffar infidels– criminal codes and human rights and constitutions– those laws are, well, ignorable infidel laws made by evil unbelieving infidels. You obey them whilst hating them when and if you have to, but this is an interim period, before the godly laws of Allah are imposed on the West. You “swore an oath” to uphold the U.S. Constitution & defend America against all enemies foreign and domestic? It is to giggle– of course your inward fingers were crossed, and you smiled as the foolish infidels believed you. Or, perhaps your Islamic identity was imperfectly formed back then, and you meant it– but now, knowing the higher law of Allah to wage holy war, you won’t be going back to turn in your citizenship– because you have more opportunities to attack The Great Satan from within.
This is the vital difference between Judaeo-Christianity and Islam. Bearing false witness, or telling lies is to break a commandment– and in the case of Jesus’ teaching, to be a son or daughter of the devil. Although people perjure themselves all the time in court, at least theoretically, they are giving a solemn oath on their souls (so help me God, with hand on Bible), in a religio-legal world where Law comes from God, but where he allows the sphere of secularity to have its own laws as long as they are in accord with basic moral and spiritual principles– and the inherited pagan wisdom of Roman and other ancient law-codes, including the Jewish Law found in Deuteronomy.
Moreso, Christianity did not teach holy war or deception or mass-murder or armed revolution as the basic of the faith. Jesus sought to convert the Zealots, and had two or three in his company of apostles; St. Paul makes it clear that the churches ought to pray for the Emperor, pay their taxes, and go about doing all sorts of good no matter the circumstances– for the authorities and the laws, as bad as they might be, were still in some sense the image of God’s rule and power. Times might be when civil disobedience or suffering or other forms of non-violent resistance might be called for.. but revolt and the sword and the blood of others was not the Way Of the Christians.
Islam is not like this. Repeat that over and over.
Pants On Fire For Allah
In Islam, tactical and strategic deception is every day procedure; taqqiyah (lying when it comes to deceiving infidels) is a virtuous thing. That’s why all too often, Islamic terror-defendants in court go around like they own the place. Their religion, preacher, Koran, and Islamic tradition tell them so.
Infidel law has no final legitimacy, authority, or divine sanction; it will be done away with when the full Islamic revolution comes; there is no act of treachery, mass-murder, injury and death of women and children and non-combatants that is not approved-of by Allah, in the name of Jihad.
Finally, To Sum Up
We are dealing with a dehumanizing ideology, not unlike Marxist socialism, which cheerfully captures, tortures, imprisons, and kills ideological opponents, loyal Marxists, whomever– For The Cause. Or Hitlerian socialism, putting any opponent or bother to the regime in death-camps.
Until we understand this, we will be deceived, and self-deceiving. We value and honour the past– or rebel against it– within a tradition of reason, faith, science, law, principles of freedom and liberty, and all the rest.
Islam is not like this. Repeat that over and over.
Before it’s too late. ~
Runny Funny Love
~ ITEM: Warm Bodies, 2013
~ ITEM: The internet and e-readers are ‘destroying’ creativity, youth culture and underground writing because they beam ideas around the globe too quickly, the author of cult novel Trainspotting has said
~ TEH BINKS IS a fan of a very specialized kind of movie genre– the Rom-Zom-Com, such as Shaun of The Dead, The Evil Dead 2, My Boyfriend’s Back, Fido, Wasting Away, Zombieland, and most recently (February 2013).
I intuit several things about the zombie genre– (1) that is is about us and them, i.e. initially politically of right versus left; (2) It is a secular exploration of undead-life-after-death, of the unspoken thing of death (3) It is an attempt to scare ourselves into feeling something, that there’s more to life than what is; (4) Is is an exploration of the sense that we are dead, seeking life, and asking what has our denatured rootless technological society done to us?
In Warm Bodies, these questions are made explicit, though in a light and sophisticated way. Here is no nihilist gore-fest by George Romero, but a young zombie who finds he’s not entirely dead inside– that he has a soul, a longing, a romantic heart. He doesn’t spend his days only seeking victims, but has a whole jetliner decorated in items he has collected. He plays music, he can still mumble a few words.
He and his zombuds go out and attack a group of human survivors, but he saves one girl by smearing zombie-guck on her. He smuggles her back to his hideaway, and she begins to realize he’s not your average zombie. Zombie-boy falls in love with her, and his heart beats again– once. As he begins to change, some of his zombuds go through a change too– they begin to speak, remember, love, dream, and seek to change other zombies into whatever rehumanizing creatures they are becoming.
It’s pretty funny, powerful, non-heavy handed stuff. I’ll leave the rest to you.. but it’s a hopeful, amazing movie about learning how to live again.
There He Goes Again
Can we come back to life, from the distracted, alienated, denatured, enslaved, fearful kind of semi-undead existence we have created in modern society, cut of from God, from mother earth, from our natural freedoms and joys; then with the doom of death awaiting all, is there more to hope in beyond death; is there hope beyond our inward deadness?
As a believer in The Great Story of God’s rescue of us from sin, hell and death by the dying rising and glorification of Jesus Christ, this story echoes both as a true story, and as a pointer to the True Story.
God’s Promise Of An Answer
The visionary prophet Ezekiel, considering the spiritual state of God’s people, sees a valley of dry bones.. God asks him “Can these bones live?” Bit by bit, they are re-assembled, clothed in flesh, and given the breath of new life.
Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’”
Here is the promise of a new kind of life than simply physical or mental existence; it is a redeeming life, a promise of risen and everlasting life, which was initiated by the rising of God’s incarnate Son on the third day.
We Zombies, We
Thing is, when we banish faith, we a slow a choose death of the soul, the mind, of hope and love. It may take generations, or it may take years. Part of why and where we are now is the decision of our clevers and our chattering & braining classes to try– in the “Englightenment”– to banish Christian faith, and go on our own fuel without all that. Of course, such hopes went sour and resulted in destruction, blood, corpses, and the inevitable dictator or strong man to bring a horrible order out of chaos.
Our power over nature seemed another path of promise.. technology, medicine, all the rest.. and yet hear too is no abiding life, and too much of it ends up being someone’s power over someone else, or some group, or some part of the world. The 20th century was supposed to be the greatest century ever, remember, all our self-made amazing progress culminating in ever more heaven on earth. Labour-saving devices, the power of industry & chemistry and the state reaching out to solve age-old social problems….
A Dark New Era?
We know how that all worked out 1901-2000.. we don’t know how this new millennium will work out, either– except that the West is running on the fumes of our spiritual, material, and moral inheritance. We have sought self-sufficiency and power and pleasure, and said the word forbidden by God “Again!” as if all of existence were here to provide us with amusing experiences and pleasures and hobbies.
Can these dead bones live? Can we die to selfish enslavement to the world, and deceptions, and false promises of heaven on earth, and comforting lies about how long our civilization can drag on? Warm Bodies is a pointer to the Great Story, and for that, it’s a great story, and a 9.0 Binky-Stars. ~
Fight To The Death
~ ITEM: Brian Lilley on Death-Monger Morgentaler’s death
~ ITEM: The Story Of ProWomanProLife
~ I HATE ABSTRACTIONS like ‘fetus’.. Latin cheat-word in the modern context, meaning ‘unborn baby’. I know two people who might have been aborted– the She-Binks, and Binkling #2.
Both have likes & dislikes, features, names, all the specificity and mix of good and bad and otherwise which is anyone of us. Sadly, 3.5 unborn boys and girls in Canada have been hacked & burnt and discarded.. hidden, nameless, under the deceptive generalization of “Choice”, which net effect is the naked and brutal “Power of the greater over the lesser”. Might makes right. Adulthood trumps prenatal infancy, bitches.
What if there were the means for prospective parents to talk to a future projection of their unborn son or daughter? Or, have to fight them, with whoever winning allowed to live?
Abortion does not prevent parenthood, it makes a man and woman the mother and father of a dead child. Real words mean things, and truth– however painful or awkward– is better than lies or concealing abstractions.
Such were we all.. tiny one, growing one, born and now we are as we are. Not in general, but us, actually, one-and-only forever, from God’s mind via the co-creating parents, into the world. We cast them away, like leaves on the wind.
They Missed Her
Gianna Jessen is an abortion-survivor. A real person who survived her attempted murder by saline abortion. The hundreds of millions we have had killed with generally legal abortion with the aid of doctors and nurses and hospitals and clinics– these dear ones cry out to be heard, remembered, allowed to speak and ahve the say we denied them as unique individuals.
Our society is a battle between life and death, as Jessen says, and literally between heaven and hell.
The Mirror Looks Back
Men? Sitting back, being thankful to ‘dodge the bullet’ of unexpected fatherhood? Man-fail. Parents? Forcing your daughters to abort instead of give up to adoption? Betrayal. Evil.
Oh and feminists? We’re onto your smelly little orthodoxies and hellish lies– about the imaginary gabillions of women who died as a result of illegal abortion.. lie (invented talking point). About Roe V. Wade– utter injustice and social engineering, with Supreme COurt Judges pontificating, and ‘legalizing’ slow mass-murder. About how it was only to be done for rapes, and incest, and dengerous pregnancies– lies upon lies, tiny corpse upon tiny corpse.
On such things, our society is being judged. ~
The Really Ancient Stuff
~ THE MORE I devote my super-wisdoms to the topic, the more I’m sure that we’re just the latest civilization in a long line.
Millions of years of humanoids? But how old are modern-ish humans? Super volcano 75,000 years ago, possible major meteor-strike 12000 years ago? What would a 100,000 year-old city look like, especially if so many cities of the past (as now) are on the coasts, in river-valleys, and other places that can be changed, worn away, submerged, and all the rest.
Heck, the Trojans, the Hittites, and many other civilizations were lost until the invention of modern archaeology. Now, with submarine archaeology still in its infancy, the discoveries are rolling in.. the undersea is still an undiscovered country in many ways, and will surprise us in ways we can hardly imagine now.
I can’t wait. ~
A Note Of Foot
~ ITEM: Our Strange Lives– We’re connected, but not connecting
~ A WORD FROM Binks on the ‘Death Of Silence’ thing I wrote about last time– I had occasion to meet a university classmate & friend who still has to do with our alma mater. She says it’s completely different from when we went there “It’s so quiet.. there’s hardly anybody around.. they’re all texting or surfing.. really creepy.”
By contrast, back in the dino-80s, when we weren’t group-hunting velociraptors, we were walking together, chatting, gathering in small clots or mobs, going downtown, walking and chatting on our way to the Student Union Building, on our way to class, on our way to social and other events which were the social life & friendship-bonding glue of the university-thing.
Now, a generation and a bit later, silence. We’ve seen a devolution; an electronic mutation of human being, behaviour, and interaction. I much prefer being well-read, socialized, and educated, and THEN using the web as a further research/ learning/ fun-tool, not as a primary interface with reality, my closest companion, my Linus comfort-blanket. ~
