Recently, reverend Samuel Green got pulled up for making a false claim about the Muslim community in Australia – he claimed they had been publicly silent on Same Sex Marriage (SSM). He was shown evidence he was wrong but there was no apology. Pride, perhaps?
Well, I think it could be because Samuel Green may be quite a wimpy bloke even on the net where anybody can be a tiger. A wimpy fella, that’s a hefty claim? I can support my theory with a long standing example. I’ve repeatedly asked him to denounce Sam Shamoun for his abuse towards Muslims, including towards me personally. What did I hear in response? Silence. Samuel does silence well. Perhaps Samuel thinks Christians calling Muslims “slime”, “sewage” and “vile rabid dog” is in keeping with biblical values.
It gets worse. I can accept cowardice. Sam Shamoun probably could batter Samuel Green in a fight so I understand why the reverend may want to stay silent. Nobody fancies getting their teeth knocked out. And let’s be honest, we are all cowardly about something. We all are. Let’s cut the reverend some slack. One of his flock may be reading.
What I can’t accept is poor-thinking. Yes, the reverend was exhibiting signs of poor thinking. B-b-b-but he’s a reverend, reverends can’t be poor thinkers? Shrugs shoulders. Samuel Green, after being shown to be misrepresenting the Muslim community in Australia, writes:
The Islamic community in Australia has its own media machine, as all groups do, that is fine. And it is normally very vocal when it comes to issues like Muslim rights, Islamophobia, Western policy. You will hear their spokespeople everywhere: TV, radio, newsprint, internet, public forums, etc. However, on the same-sex marriage issue this has not been the case. The Islamic media machine has not run the Imams Council Press release. This is not my opinion but simply the observation of the media in Australia.
So my comments still stand. Why have the Islamic media in Australia not put the same time and effort into the SSM debate as they do with Muslim rights, Islamophobia, Western policy?
It does not take Einstein to answer:
- Islamophobia is a more pressing issue for Muslims. When you have a bunch of wild maniacs (some/many of whom are Christians) attacking your women and old folk, burning your mosques down, depriving you of jobs, peddling hate propaganda against you online and on the streets literally as well as calling for you to be booted out of the continent of the Aboriginies you’re going to be expending the vast majority of your time, energy and cash on opposing Islamophobia. 2 + 2! It would be like asking a Jew in medieval Europe in the 16th century why he is not being so vocal against homosexuals or witches. They’d say because they’ve got wild-eyed Christians wanting to burn down their homes and synagogues etc.. One of those wild-eyed Christians was Martin Luther, I do believe he was the spark for reverend Green’s church movement. And Martin Luther was known to use vulgar language throughout his career, perhaps reverend Green just thinks Mr Shamoun is following his church founder hence his refusal to rebuke Mr Shamoun?
- If Muslims were really, really vocal against SSM, as vocal as they are about Islamophobia, you know what would happen! The same bigots (including many of Samuel’s co-religionists and colleagues (?)) would use it as a stick to beat Muslims with. These folks are already babbling on about how Muslims can’t fit into the Australian way of life. They will lap it up for their propaganda purposes. The Australian way of life includes SSM, pre-marital sex and the porn culture. If you and your church buddies weren’t so lazy and cowardly decades ago you guys would not be scapegoating the weakest minority in your “Christian” country where SSM is part of the lifestyle. Point the fingers at yourselves, you took the continent from the Aboriginies and you were so corrupt that sex outside marriage and porn became the norm – not to mention abortion and SSM. Now you’re moaning about SSM like you’re some sort of warriors for Christ. You guys are a bunch of lazy, cowardly, pretenders. You reap what you sow.
Did I hurt an Aussie Christian’s feelings? What you, mean you managed to steal yourself away from your porn stash, your beer, your boyfriend/girlfriend(s), your racist comment you were about to post on FB, some trashy and sleazy TV show or some other form of corrupt entertainment to read this?
Leave the Muslims alone and be real men. Try to teach your women not to parade themselves on the TV all naked and try to teach your daughters not to get all dolled-up every Friday and Saturday night on booze-benders as easy prey for the young male Aussie (Christian?) perverts out in force. Try to teach your young men to exercise self-control and stop being so sex obsessed – 75% of Christian men are addicted to porn (yet you guys want to tell us you’ve got the Holy Spirit regenerating you).
In short, stop babbling on the net about Muslims and go and sort your “Christian” country out if you really care about sexual purity – you may want to actually get advice from the Aussie Muslims and ask them to help you in this regard. It looks like you need all the help you can get.
Australians are claiming to take more sexual partners over a lifetime than a decade ago, with researchers pointing towards a liberal approach to sleeping with people.
Compared to a decade ago, people have become more open to premarital sex, abortion and homosexuality, liberating couples to engage in a varied sex life.
Researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), La Trobe University and the University of Sydney have published a study which reveals that women claim to have taken nine sexual partners in their lifetime, and men claim to have taken 17.5
…’The unacceptability of women being promiscuous is slipping away.’
The study indicated that women are also more likely to have had sex for the first time during their early teens, with 16% of women reporting that they had lost their virginity before 16, up from 13% a decade ago. [Daily Mail]
You know what I’ve written has a ring of truth. It should sting and shame you. You folks are corrupt, your Bible talks about knowing them by their fruits, we know Australia is morally corrupt. You’re only “men” when you’re bashing the weakest group (Muslims). You’re “Christian” women must be real proud of you for bashing head-coverings and doing away with modest dress. You gave your young people and your country up to lustful ways and to make yourselves feel better you make out Muslims are lustful, paedophiles, rapists, etc..
And you have the audacity to ask Muslims to be more vocal about the corruption you allowed to take hold in your own country – the same Muslims many of you want to stop from getting into the continent or ship off to some other country? You people truly are cowards. Corrupt cowards. And you know it’s true. You know everything I wrote here has a ring of truth. You may not admit it because it’s a Muslim writing it and it stings.
I challenge you to do a Jonathan McLatchie and read it out without citing your reference in your church sermons and I guarantee you, you’ll get applauded by the people who have a semblance of piety in them. If you don’t get any reaction, it means you’re preaching to a truly corrupt group or you’re preaching to a bunch of Samuel Greens who specialise in silence when they have to be bold.
