Lizzie Schofield of Pfander Ministries is shouting and getting all obnoxious at a Muslim teacher, Adnan Rashid, whilst taking Islamic texts out of context to argue Islam allows acts such as the Manchester terrorism attack. It’s shameful to see her misusing the suffering and deaths of the victims at Ariane Grande’s concert. It is equally disrespectful and shameful for her to be shouting all this at Adnan Rashid, whose son has been the target of death threats from ISIS!
Adnan Rashid elucidates Islamic texts, showing Islam does not allow the killing of innocent kids at a concert. In this video, I’ve also included a clip of Paul Williams asking Islamophobic Christian whether they condemn 1 Samuel 15:3.
3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” [Bible]
Anybody can take that Biblical text, which Trinitarian Christians believe is an order from Jesus, and decontexualise it to argue Christianity allows the killing of women and children. This is exactly the approach Lizzie and other Islamophobes take with regards to Islamic texts. It’s not fair and serious minded Christians should ask this group of Christians to stop doing – it’s intellectually dishonest and putting Christians in bad light.
Fair-minded people who want to actually learn about Islam, rather than feign sense of outrage for their personal nefarious agendas will want to watch Paul Williams’ presentation at Hyde Park’s Speakers Corner on how Islam condemns terrorism
