Theologically-No!...because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

Religiously-No!...because no other religion is accepted by hi Allah except Islam. (Quran,2:256)

Scripturally-No!...because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran.

Geographically-No!...because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially-No!...because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically-No!...because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.

Domestically-No!...because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran 4:34)

Intellectually-No!...because he cannot accept the American constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically-No!...because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot coexist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually-No!...because when we declare 'One nation under God,' the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly Father, nor is he ever called Love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.

...The Blessings of The Eternal One, Yeshua Messiac, bring you joy...

If you want to cherry-pick the Bible, you can find equally reprehensible statements. When Christianity ruled the secular realm (kings who ruled by "divine right"), they were every bit as dictatorial and autocratic.

Please define "good American".

There are no religious requirements to be a "good American" or citizen of the United States.

And Christians allegiance is to Yahweh - the desert tribal war god of Israel

Bible god doesn't accept other religions either.

No different than Christians and The Bible..

If you honestly believe Christians are socially accepting of other relgions, then you need to visit the Bible belt.

Incorrect. The Constitution is based on secular Enlightenment principles, not Biblical.

The Bible is corrupt.

Quote:

Neither does Christainity or The Bible.

Quote:

Every government that was founded on Christian & Biblical principles was as well. That's why we have separation of religion and government in this country.

The USA is NOT "one nation under God". Our legitimate motto is "E Pluribus Unum" which means "From many, one". We have many Gods and beliefs but none of them define us as a nation.

Oh, and the Christian/Biblical god is anything but loving and kind...

If my personal experience is any judge, the answer has to be "yes." I know approximately 20 practicing Muslims, and all are good Americans.

Perhaps a good bran muffin may help you...

#1 (Theologically) makes no sense. Theology is simply religion or belief. They have theology. They just don't happen to be of the same theology that the writer (obviously a lunatic Christian) is.

#2 (Religiously) See above. They just don't happen to believe in the writer's religion. How does it differ from Christian belief that only Christians are going to heaven?

#3: (Scripturally) See above.

#4: (Socially) Completely untrue lol

#5: (Politically) Mullahs are like Pastors or Priests. You listen to them, you read them, but just as you might disagree or agree with your Pastor - they have a similar relationship with the Mullahs (or sheiks). Do some Mullahs or Sheiks preach anti-Western ideas? Yeah, no doubt. But it's not true that Muslims have to do anything. Politicially, Muslims tend to be pretty self-involved and knowledgeable. (not so smart theologically, in my opinion, but that's a different story)

#6: (Domestically) Untrue. I'm not a fan of religious texts but just as the Bible has odd, out-of-date verses that we look back on and go, "WHAT?" so does the Quran. The Bible says that women shouldn't speak in church, that they're supposed to be subservient to their husbands, or that a man can beat their wife with anything thinner than their thumb. Oddly, I don't see an argument against this by this foolish writer.

#7: (Intellectually) This is the best! The Constitution WASN'T written on Biblical Principles! This is really rich. Our founding fathers weren't Christians - they were a group of Theists, Deists, and even, Atheists (gasp). John Adams made specific comments about how the Christian faith disgusted him and that in no way was this country being created a Christian nation, but simply a nation of people who were free to worship whatever they chose. Thomas Jefferson created a Bible that removed every single mention of Jesus Christ. Thomas Paine was one of the biggest atheists of all times. These weren't Bible-happy Christians by any means.

#8 (Spiritually) "One Nation Under God" wasn't implanted on anything until 1952. It was a McCarthyism that was meant to distinguish us from the Godless Communists. I'm probably a bad American because I'm of the opinion that it should be removed. Moderator cut: deleted/inappropriate language

No, the world does not need Islam, neither economically nor socially, and especially not politically..It is a archaic belief that has no place in the modern world.
