Emulating Islam: The Left’s War on the Christian Cross

AMERICAN THINKER:
By Raymond Ibrahim

In many ways, the “secular Left” and Islam appear to be diametrically opposed: the Left is sexually promiscuous, Islam isn’t; the Left believes in countless genders, Islam doesn’t; the Left believes in all sorts of freedoms, Islam believes only in draconian sharia — and so on and so forth. 

When it comes to Islam’s views on Christianity, however — that it is an inferior faith to be subjugated and discriminated against (Koran 9:29) — the Left appears to be in agreement.

For example, a 61-year-old Christian woman who escaped to Britain from her Nigerian homeland — where a genocide against Christians is currently underway — experienced something similar in her adopted nation. Mary Onuoha, formerly a nurse at England’s Croydon University Hospital since 2002, was over the years repeatedly harassed by management and finally “bullied” out of her job for refusing to remove her small cross necklace, which she has worn for 40 years.  As Mary explained in an interview:

This has always been an attack on my faith. My cross has been with me for 40 years. It is part of me, and my faith, and it has never caused anyone any harm… At this hospital there are members of staff who go to a mosque four times a day and no one says anything to them. Hindus wear red bracelets on their wrists and female Muslims wear hijabs in theatre. Yet my small cross around my neck was deemed so dangerous that I was no longer allowed to do my job.

Her bosses eventually claimed that her cross necklace “harbored bacteria… even though many colleagues were allowed to sport other items expressing their religious beliefs, be they turbans, hijabs or bracelets.” The question she often responded with, and which her superiors never answered, was “why I should hide my faith while others were allowed to show their own.” MORE

  1. Simple question: “What is your plan for solving the Bolshevik problem?”

    ‘What problem?’: Next

    ‘Render unto Caesar’: Next

  2. The enemy of my enemy is a tool to oppress and destroy my immediate enemy. Besides I get traction for supporting an opportunistic alternative to the god called Satan who really the moon god behind that religion so I win either way.

  3. When I was at ABC I wore a US/Israel flag pin on my suit coat lapel. You should have seen the broken necks. What’s more you should have seen the smiles.

  4. I should feel bad for her, but I am instead proud of her. She has “chosen the better part” in choosing Jesus rather than reject Him for the sake of a job.
    In her own way, she has become role model for Christians everywhere.

  5. This is why the heathens and pagans object to the cross:

    1 Cor 1:18
    For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    NASU
