The Christian Connection

    Much before the cartoon controversy escalated, various conferences were being organized by concerned Muslims around the theme of defending the Prophet (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) against the many acrimonious attacks on the Messenger of Allah (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) by televangelists and clergy belonging to different Christian denominations. Taking advantage of the politically-charged environment in the United States in recent years, they have revived the tradition of insults from their crusader predecessors, often with racist and xenophobic overtones. The televangelists with their wide television audiences created the most uproar by their hostile and hate-provoking statements on Islam and Prophet Muhammad (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) calling him a terrorist or even a child molester. The Christian clergy have always maintained that strict abstemiousness and refraining from marriage were essential for piety, and often scorned the Muslims and the Islamic Sharee’ah that allows, or rather encourages, the one who seeks piety to get married. The priests enforced on themselves a Sharee’ah (legislation) that were opposed to the nature with which Allah created mankind, and could not keep up to their convictions for long – only that they were able to keep their evil-doing a secret until Allah exposed them. And despite having many pedophiles and child-molesters in their midst, the Christian clergy and televangelists are morally bankrupt enough to slander Prophet Muhammad (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam).

    In the latest controversy, we find the first newspaper to reprint the insulting cartoons was the Norwegian evangelical Christian newspaper, ‘Magazinet.’ On the internet, which is as strong a media as television or newspapers, one finds a large number of websites that call towards Christianity, that also spread articles defaming and slandering Prophet Muhammad (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam). This attitude of theirs, apart from being in stark contrast to the Christian idea of ‘loving one's enemy’, is absolutely not in the interests of the Christian clergy or callers for the following reasons:

    Firstly, Muslims have never bought the lame evangelical propaganda against their Messenger (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam), so the primary benefit is destroyed – rather the more the Prophet Muhammad (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam) is subject to unfair mockery and slanders, the more Muslims are motivated against being careless of their faith. The ill-effect of this however, is more mutual-distrust and hatred.

    Secondly, the strong and ever-growing body of atheists, secularist and Satanists in the West, are using Christian propaganda to defame religion itself. Who is to define morality if all the religious heads are presumed to be immoral?

The collective body of practicing Christians in the west already find themselves to be loosing the battle on 'values.' They are helpless spectators against the widespread mockery of Jesus Christ (alaihis-salaam) and of God in the popular-entertainment media. Their weakness is to the extent that they cannot even verbally express their opposition to sodomy. They have in their societies, a lot of problems like, adultery, sexual assault, sexual perversions, children out of wedlock, teenage pregnancy, prevalent prostitution, widespread pornography that reaches even young children. They should concentrate on combating these ills, rather than be concerned about the morality of the noble Messenger Muhammad (sallalalhu alaihi wa-sallam), whose followers have far-less problems with moral degradation.

    Thirdly, and most importantly, it is more in the interest of the priests and evangelists, to preach mercy and forgiveness for child molesters and perverts, rather then generate hatred against them – for as the BBC put it, ‘There was a time when, almost without exception, a priest was regarded as a respected member of the community. Today, the news that yet another cleric has been accused of sexually abusing children is not uncommon.’

    Since the 1990, thousands of Church clergymen have been found to be involved in the sexual exploitation of the most vulnerable sections of the society -- young children, orphans and even the handicapped. (see the last section of this article)
