An interesting situation arose for a couple of Fox News employees kidnapped by the religion of peace recently. They were held for a time to allegedly enact an exchange of Mohammedan prisoners for the two media employees. When it became apparent that was not going to happen, the kidnappers faced the pressure of their fellow Mohammedans employed by Mohammedan media outlets.
The kidnappers had a dilemma: how to ditch the abductees and look like weak morons to their fellow death-cult Mohammedans? The Islamofascist so-called Holy Jihad Brigades offered the Fox News abductees three choices:
[C]onversion to Islam, paying the jizya (non-Muslim tax paid to their Muslim masters) or war [death].(Ross Rants and Raves) The Fox News employees chose the option that preserve their lives.
My first reaction was good choice. I suspected (I really don't know) that they were not particularly religious Christians. Since Americans have freedom of choice and religion, a mere recanting of their conversion to Islam would be a simple enough task.
Then I came across this blog Ross Rants and Raves. Scott Ross asks, "What would you do?"
This got me to thinking. I am a strong believing Christian but not necessarily a highly disciplined Christian. I have issues I need to pray through because I mess up once in awhile. (Yes and I know some of you Christians do as well but are afraid to say so.) After some thought, this became an issue of publicly denying Christ to save my life. Ouch! Suddenly I thought, "Is that the right way to go?"
After all that is how much of the Middle East and North Africa became Mohammedan. These were Christian lands for the most part in which people had to make a life and death choice. Obviously many chose life, for the area is overwhelming Mohammedan since their particular days of conquest. A few managed to participate in second class apartheid by paying the jizya (tax) of dhimmitude (thus giving up rights of humanity and giving up the right to practice their faith in public without being executed).
What would I do? What would you do?
