Wiesbaden, Germany – In the Rhine Valley city of Mannheim, the glittering minaret of Germany’s biggest mosque overshadows what was once the region’s most vibrant church, testifying to Muslims’ new confidence as Christian churches are closing down.
Years ago, 180 sisters of the Catholic order of the Sisters of the Divine Savior were the pulse of the city. Today, eight remain. Every weekend, roughly 150 Roman Catholics attend mass at the Liebfrauen Church, while up to 3,000 Muslims throng the Yavuz-Sultan-Selim mosque. Since the mosque was opened in 1995, Muslim shops and youth centers have become a magnet for the Muslim community.
Mannheim is not unique. Across Europe, the Continent’s fastest-growing religion is establishing its public presence after decades in basements and courtyards, changing not only the architectural look of cities, but also their social fabrics.
Hailed by many as a sign of Muslim integration, the phenomenon is also feared as evidence of a parallel Islamic world threatening Europe’s Christian culture.

NEW YORK, July 26, 2007 — Charles Merrill, the artist who recently edited the Holy Bible with a black marker and pair of sissors, has lately burned a rare Islamic Holy Book, The Koran, valued at $60,000.00, in an undisclosed Chicago location. “The purpose of editing and burning Abrahamic Holy Books is to eliminate homophobic hate,” Merrill stated. “Both ancient books are terrorist manuals.”
So, in light of the Left’s support for the complaint against Free Dominion, I am reading these stories and I cannot help but shake my head.
I am wondering just how any thinking human being cannot see what the future holds.
I have a question for you, Mr. Lefty. When you finish your job at silencing Christians and social conservatives, making them completely voiceless and powerless, just who do you think you will be dealing with next?
When I ran against Dalton McGuinty and John Baird, the Liberal Party loved it because I was draining votes from the Conservative Party. The Liberals didn’t like me. But for them, I was the useful idiot who ensured that I would steal away some votes from their nearest competitor.
Well, it’s the same thing here, except that Christians and social conservatives are being squeezed out of the political landscape all together, and all that will remain are the Islamists and the Left to fight in the political new world order.
The Left and the Islamists have some very, very tough obstacles to overcome. These factions use each other to destroy social conservatives politically, but eventually they will have to deal with one another. And that is not going to be pretty for obvious reasons.
When the Left finally figures out that it made a very horrible mistake in squashing the civil liberties and power of their western conservative brethren, it will be too little and too late.
The enemy of your enemy is not always your friend.
