Sharia Law definition, Freedom of Speech and Religion
Behold, thou art not only guilty of priestcraft, but hast endeavored to enforce it by the sword; and were priestcraft to be enforced among this people it would prove their entire destruction. ~Alma 1:12
Sharia has a specific definition. It’s not just Stalinism. But the Regime comes and gets you. If you don’t comport, the Regime’s gonna come and get you. You’re gonna be blamed. And so she’s simply saying, “Look, I had to go out and spend 50 grand for security because we knew that some people were gonna come here and try to incite violence,” and what she’s saying to the media is, “It sounds like you condone them! ~Rush Limbaugh
Note: I looked up images for Sharia Law. Many of them are so gruesome, I refrained from posting them here. I chose mild ones, but be aware: the truth about sharia law is brutal, gruesome, and barbaric. ~C.D.
PAMELA GELLER: I am anti-jihad. I am anti-Sharia. You, by saying, I “paint with a broad brush,” are saying all Muslims support sharia. And, Allison, you sound very Islamophobic. My event was about freedom of speech. Period. Who would decide what’s good and what’s forbidden? These arbitrary voices? You? (chuckles) The Muslim Brotherhood? The fact that we have to spend upwards of $50,000 in security speaks to how dangerous and how in trouble freedom of speech is in this country. And then we have to get on these news shows and somehow we are — those that are targeted, those that were going to be slaughtered are — the ones who get attacked speaks to how morally inverted this conversation is!
RUSH: Do you see her point? She’s making the point that she’s not anti-Muslim. She’s anti-jihad. She’s anti-Sharia. Believe me, none of you want Sharia. Well, I mean, I don’t know. But you hear the term Sharia bandied about, and it’s something distant and it’s over here and you think it’s so un-American. “It’s specious to even worry about it here, and it’s nothing more than fearmongers and panicmongers trying to get everybody worked up about it.”
Sharia-type tactics vs. Freedom of Speech and Religion in Indiana
Well, I can give you a great example of what living under Sharia would be like. Remember Indiana, after they passed the Religious Freedom Protection Act? Remember what happened there? You had the news media joining with militant gay groups to go out and find bigots. They wanted to find bigots. They went door-to-door shopping for bigots and they found this naive little girl, part of a family that runs a pizzeria in some town in Indiana, 2,000 people, and they asked her a question:
“Would you cater a gay wedding with your pizza?”
“No, I wouldn’t. My religious beliefs do not support gay marriage.”
You saw what happened to her? The entire news media, accompanied by militant gay groups, descended on that family, tried to put it out of business. You’ve seen it with flower shops and cake shop, bakeries and photography studios. That’s essentially what Sharia is. “You will behave, you will conform, you will not say what we don’t want to hear. You will obey — and if you don’t, bammo! This is what gonna happen to you.”
That’s what Sharia is, except with the tenets of militant Islam thrown in. You’re not given any choice in the matter. “You must conform, you must convert, you are going to live the way we tell you.” There is no First Amendment. There is no freedom to assemble. It all has to be sanctioned and approved; it has to come under the guidelines of whatever the Sharia says is permissible or isn’t. You saw just a modified little version of it.
It’s really rooted in the fact that if you behave or speak in an unacceptable way, you are going to feel the full force and brunt of the people and organizations who do not permit you, will not permit you to do or say what you are doing. You’ll be shamed for whatever, and that’s a form of it. I would venture to say that while not technically Sharia, you can find examples of what it would be like already happening in this country.
Pam Geller is simply saying, “I don’t support Sharia. I’m opposed to Sharia, I’m opposed to jihad, and I’m demonstrating something. We live in a country with freedom of speech, and I’m organizing a little cartoon-drawn contest here. I have the First Amendment right to do this,” and she’s illustrating this to make a point. Look what happens to people who follow and obey the Constitution. They get blamed. Folks, call it whatever you want: Stalinism, statism, Sharia.
Sharia has a specific definition. It’s not just Stalinism. But the Regime comes and gets you. If you don’t comport, the Regime’s gonna come and get you. You’re gonna be blamed. And so she’s simply saying, “Look, I had to go out and spend 50 grand for security because we knew that some people were gonna come here and try to incite violence,” and what she’s saying to the media is, “It sounds like you condone them!
“You’re blaming me! I’m the peaceful person here. I’m not doing anything to anybody. We’re just speaking. We’re drawing. You sound like… Journalist, Ms. Journalist, you sound like you think all of this is my fault.” She’s merely saying, “It’s really, really dangerous when the people who come and try to blow things up or shoot people dead are the victims.” But in liberalism, this is how things have been twisted.
