John Kerry calls ISIS ‘apostates’

The Obama administration continues its absurd Islamic proclamations devoid of Islamic theology.

Over the past four years, Obama and his yapping minions have insisted that the Islamic State “is not Islamic” despite their every action, every declaration being based on Islamic texts and teachings. The Islamic State prays around every murder, every rape, every conquest. Muhammad is their model. The Islamic State kills Muslims who have “betrayed” Islam — secular Muslims, Shia Muslims, apostates.

So I cannot help but be bemused and amused by John Kerry, world-renowned Islamic scholar, declaring the Islamic State faithful to be “apostates.” What school of Islamic jurisprudence is Kerry basing this on? First, it’s “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam” and now, when it can no longer be denied, it’s, “well — they’re Islamic apostates!” These are the people in charge of our security?

The former Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Adel Kalbani, said,  “ISIS have the same beliefs as we do.” The Islamic State explains their every action using the Quran, hadith and sira.

It is interesting that when the Obama administration could no longer deny the connection between the Islamic State and Islam, they have resorted to using Islamic terminology to explain them. Obama is far more the apostate than the devout Muslims serving the Islamic State: he was raised a Muslim and his father was a Muslim, making him a Muslim according to Islamic law. But now he identifies as a Christian. So here we have the apostate President’s non-Muslim Secretary of State declaring that people whose every move is guided by the Quran are apostates. It would be a great comedy if so many people weren’t getting killed.

John Kerry calls ISIS ‘apostates’ By Arutz Sheva Staff, February 2, 2016:
With unusual choice of language, US Secretary of State wades into Islamic theology, claims Islamic State not true Muslims but ‘apostates.

With an unusual choice of language, US Secretary of State John Kerry waded into Islamic theological debate on Tuesday when he branded the Islamic State terror group “apostates.”

The United States affords its citizens religious freedom and does not consider apostasy a crime, but Kerry chose the term to rubbish the jihadists’ claims of piety.

“Daesh is in fact nothing more than a mixture of killers, of kidnappers, of criminals, of thugs, of adventurers, of smugglers and thieves,” he declared using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

“And they are also above all apostates, people who have hijacked a great religion and lie about its real meaning and lie about its purpose and deceive people in order to fight for their purposes.”

Some Muslim legal scholars consider the proper punishment for turning one’s back on the faith to be death and several majority Islamic countries execute convicted apostates.

ISIS claims to have founded a “caliphate” based on its interpretation of Islamic sharia law and itself often brands its Muslim enemies apostates.

Kerry was in Rome on Tuesday for a meeting of the 23 nations at the core of the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria and supporting local forces.

The end of a news conference by Kerry and Italy’s foreign minister Paolo Gentiloni was briefly disrupted by protesters alleging US policy had caused the jihadists’ rise.

    Imam John Kerry “calls ISIS ‘apostates’”

    And as every good Muslim knows apostates must be killed on order from their “prophet” Muhammad.

    Apostates, those that renounce and betray Islam, are the most vile creatures under Islam. Worse than Christians, worse than Jews, worse even than the idol worshipping “polytheists”. They are the worst scum in the eyes of Islam, to be slaughtered without mercy.

    The only way a good Muslim like John Kerry, can slaughter another Muslim is to declare him an “apostate”. There is no other way Imam Kerry can justify the killing of ISIS. It matters not in the least that they are beheading and crucifying Christians, enslaving their children and raping and enslaving their women. It matters not in the least that they are beheading their captives and burning them alive, it matters not in the least they are stoning women to death carrying out mass murder and genocide. No it matters only that they are “apostates” in the eyes of John Kerry and his master the traitor Obama.

    They have given up Islam! How terrible. Now they can be killed. It is the duty of every good Christian to kill those that forsake Islam.

  • andreaofla

    John Kerry always was a traitor and hater of this country and its Judeo Christian heritage. Someday he will be judged.

  • Radegunda

    “… deceive people in order to fight for their purposes” — Can Kerry, or anyone else who uses this Islam-protective formula, explain to us what “purposes” are being carried out under a mere pretense of Islamic piety?

    If “Daesh” is just a bunch of thugs who want to kill and terrorize a lot of other people, why do they even bother to try justifying their actions with religion? And if they’re just using a fake-religious cover, why does it manage to draw in so many people who imagine that in doing so they’re acting for Islam, not just joining a generic band of thugs?

    And why does Islam turn out to be so much handier than any other religion as a cover for those amorphous evil purposes?

    • roger

      Exactly.

    • Rob Porter

      Good questions you’ve posed. The whitewashing of Islam is never ending with these fools, Obama, Kerry, Clinton, etc. In this regard, as Pamela points out, their contradictions are astounding and still the oh so compliant MSM is devoid of critical analysis. Just watching the blethering mental acrobatics expert and liar, Van Jones, on CNN this morning evermore singing Obama’s praise with uncritical lap dog Donna Brazier trying to sound intelligent while justifying nonsense, says much about the media today. They were discussing Obama’s visit to the mosque of which Pamela informed us, and his boosting the supposedly sagging spirits of young Muslim Americans who feel less and less American as they, evidently, get cold shouldered. Well, then, CNN should deduce and say outright, this being the case Muslims should be opposing their Islamic jihad mob and forcefully telling them to stop going around murdering people in the name of Islam because that tends to cool warm and fuzzy feelings of non-Muslims. To CNN this is too logical thinking so their skirt the reality of Muslim savagery and the uncovering of never-ending Muslim plots to create death and mahem. So, of course, does Islam pandering Obama.

      • Pray Hard

        Their whitewashing has become irrelevant. It’s time for us to move on to whatever the next phase is.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The reason young muslims are being ostracized is because they are ignorant, arrogant, constantly trying to play the bigot or racist card to get privilege and consideration that is undeserved as well as unavailable to most Americans. Americans do not submit to islam, nor can they be forced to, get that through your thick niqabs and kufiya. Muslims are no better than anyone else, they frequently demonstrate they are worse.

        • Rob Porter

          If Obama had an ounce of truthfulness in his miserable body he would have told those miserable Muslims that as long and they and their fellow Muslims continue murdering people in America and all over the world because we don’t believe their ideological nonsense, they would not be ostracized. As to their notions of superiority it only covers up their total inferiority. It’s not a matter of their being “no better than anyone else”, in fact with all their interbreeding for 1400 years they are distinctly inferior.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Everyone knows that many muslims are inbred, with all the mental and physical issues that come from generations thereof. As hussain is a muslim himself, muslims are forbidden under threat of aspostacy, from criticizing other muslims or islam, he is behaving exactly as is to be expected.

        • Steve

          To me one of the biggest problems with most muslims in the west is their unwillingness to make things better by assimilating as americans. They have forced things to be us and them. In past days when immigrants came here it took them awhile to find their place but the ultimate goal was to be americans first or westerners and no one was going to take that away from them.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Islam believes the qur’an, every idiotic word of it. The arrogant violence along with bigotry and ignorance is inbred into muslims from birth. They look down on infidels, and converts, they are the pure chosen ones, according to them, the rest of us exist only as slaves to islam. As many of infidels refuse to accept the subhuman insanity of the demon of islam, or its profit, muslims have a lot of trouble with the concept. As islam has on only one problem solving tool, violence, it is reverted to immediately… and the fight is on.

    • Pray Hard

      You already know the answers to your questions. Time to move into the next realm.

    • Steve

      Because the islamist cult promotes killing as a good thing.

  • stealth4

    Because Obama knows Islam from his childhood, his “Christian” faith claim may be just one more Obama lie.
    “STEALTH JIHAD”, Robert Spencer’s term, is perhaps what B Hussein O is practicing. Every sane person knows B Hussein O is anti-American to the core from his last seven years playing golf. He is using the media ( terrorist mosque visit ) to explain why the laws are set up to kowtow to this terrorist religion. And yet our psychopathic dictator does not follow the “rule of law” himself.

        More taqiyya.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Quote from somewhere on the internet.

        “Those who would not conform to this view should be killed, their wives and daughters violated, and their possessions confiscated, he wrote. ”

        Abd al-Wahhab demanded conformity — a conformity that was to be demonstrated in physical and tangible ways. He argued that all Muslims must individually pledge their allegiance to a single Muslim leader (a Caliph, if there were one). Those who would not conform to this view should be killed, their wives and daughters violated, and their possessions confiscated, he wrote. The list of apostates meriting death included the Shiite, Sufis and other Muslim denominations, whom Abd al-Wahhab did not consider to be Muslim at all.

        There is nothing here that separates Wahhabism from ISIS. The rift would emerge only later: from the subsequent institutionalization of Muhammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab’s doctrine of “One Ruler, One Authority, One Mosque” — these three pillars being taken respectively to refer to the Saudi king, the absolute authority of official Wahhabism, and its control of “the word” (i.e. the mosque).

        • Leela Kim

          Who is this Abd al-Wahhab ??? Demanding?? Is he catholic pope or something whose demands should be fullfilled ? In 1231 Pope Gregory IX appointed a number of Papal Inquisitors (Inquisitores haereticae pravitatis), mostly Dominicans and Franciscans, for the various regions of Europe. As mendicants, they were accustomed to travel. Unlike the haphazard episcopal methods, the papal inquisition was thorough and systematic, keeping detailed records. Some of the few documents from the Middle Ages involving first-person speech by medieval peasants come from papal inquisition records. This tribunal or court functioned in France, Italy and parts of Germany and had virtually ceased operation by the early fourteenth century.

    There is nothing remotely Christian about Obama, either in beliefs or policy.

As for Kerry; he is a typical Progressive. They strongly believe that whatever delusional belief erupt from their reprobate heart is the absolute truth.

      Do you get the point stupid Leela Kim?

      There is NO DISPUTE in Islam that apostates have to be slaughtered. There is only a dispute as to who is the apostate. Shias according to Sunnis, Sunnis according to Shias, anyone who leaves Islam, recognising it for the fraud that it is, according to both Shias and Sunnis.

      Islam, the religion of the mass murderer Muhammad, is an open licence to kill, murder, plunder, rape and enslave.

      There is no dispute in Islam that non-Muslims can be subjugated/ killed / enslaved as per the whims of the Muslims.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Every muslim that murders another muslim declares that they have killed an apostate, as there is no penalty for killing infidels as they exist only for muslim pleasure or use.

        Jesus verses:

        I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled

        Now, as for those enemies of mine who did not want me to be their king, bring them here and kill them in my presence! (PS: The Parable of Ten Minas whereas Jesus is the King, and those who should be killed are the Jews)

        Do you think I came to bring PEACE on earth? NO, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.

        “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.

        In the same way, therefore, every one of you who does not say good-bye to all his possessions cannot be My disciple.

        Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD.

        If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

        And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

        For I came to set at variance ‘A man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,

        He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

        And he [Jesus] said unto them … Ye reject the commandment of God … For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”

        Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

        And throw that worthless slave into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

        Non Jesus verses:

        I do not allow them to teach or to have authority over men; they must keep quiet.

        For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off

        The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

        The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.

        All who are forced to serve as slaves should consider their masters worthy of full respect. Then people will not speak evil things against God’s name and against what we teach.

        Some slaves have masters who are believers. They shouldn’t show their masters disrespect just because they are also believers. Instead, they should serve them even better.

        Women should learn in silence and all humility. do not allow them to teach or to have authority over men; they must keep quiet

        Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says.

  • Leela Kim

    Kerry you are right, this Daesh:

    – killed Muslims and non-Muslims (Muslims were killed more)
    – kill non combatant Muslims or non-Muslims
    – claim other mu slims as pagans
    – torture prisoners, burn prisoners, drown prisoners, kill prisoners. Most of them killed and tortured are Muslims (Heck, Islam endorsed to treat captives in kindly manner)
    – Quran only says to defensive fight: ie those who fight your faith and expel you from your home. What the hell Isis wants? Isis attacks Muslim countries Saudi Arabia, Turkey, even Indonesia. Does Indonesians expel Isis guys out of their home?

    Few Hadith about daesh:

    ~ There will be dissension and division in my nation and a people will come with beautiful words but evil deeds. They recite the Quran but it will not pass beyond their throats. They will leave the religion as an arrow leaves its target and they will not return until the arrows returns to its notch. THEY ARE THE WORST OF THE CREATION (Hadith)

    ~ Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said. There will emerge from the east some people from my nation who recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats. Every time a faction of them emerges it will be cut off. The Prophet repeated this and on the tenth time he said. Every time a faction of them emerges it will be cut off until the False Messiah emerges from their remnants (Hadith)

    ~ In the last days, there will be young people with foolish dreams. They will say the best of words in creation but they will pass through Islam just as an arrow passes through its game. Their faith will not go beyond their throats. (Hadith)

    ~ Usama ibn Zaid reported: Sa’d, may Allah be pleased with him, said: By Allah, I would never kill a Muslim as this one had killed him. A man said to him Did not Allah say: Fight them until there is no more persecution and religion is entirely for Allah? Sa’d said We did fight them until there was no more persecution, but you and your companions intend to fight until there is persecution.

    ~Ibnu Kathir: If the Khawarij ever gained power, they would corrupt the entire earth, Iraq, and Syria. They would not leave a boy or a girl or a man or a woman, for in their view the people have become so corrupt that they cannot be reformed except by mass killing.

    And no wonder even Saudi (that land of thousands clerics), Turkey, Indonesia and basically all Muslim-majority nations are against Isis. Even Saudi, form military coalitions consisting muslims countries to fight isis and other radicals.

    • Richard

      ISIS “killed Muslims and non-Muslims (Muslims were killed more)”

      That’s a Lie – they killed no Muslims.

      They only killed non-Muslims and apostates. Killing of Apostates is mandatory under Islam.

      Besides Killing non-Muslims they also killed, raped and enslaved their women and killed and enslaved their children – also sanctioned under Islam.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Taqiyya, again, still and forever, as long as there is islam, there will be taqiyya.

      Ever so often, Islamic apologists appear in the mainstream media claiming that Islam is a religion of peace. To support their assertion, Islamic apologists often quote a famous line from the Quran’s verse 5:32. Since most apologists always demand context, I will put this “peaceful” verse in full context.

      This famous line is actually only a small part of the verse, and is not even a complete sentence. Here is the line, as it is usually quoted, clipped and cropped, by apologists:

      “…whosoever killeth a human being… it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind…”

      Well, so far, so good, right? It appears to be a universal proclamation that all human life is highly valuable, and that murdering one person would be a terrible crime – like murdering all of humankind. But as we will see, appearances and apologists can be deceiving! To get a better understanding of the origins of this verse and its intended meaning in the Quran, let’s go through the complete verses 5:32-37, starting with 5:32:

      5:32: “For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them become prodigals of the earth.”

      When the omitted parts of the verse are included, the meaning of the verse changes, and permits the killing of non-Muslims under many circumstances. (We don’t need to deal with the exception for manslaughter here, for this discussion).

      Killing someone for “corruption in the earth/land” is permitted in the very next line (see 5:33)! “Corruption in the land” refers to the words and/or actions that come into significant conflict with Islam. This is not a trivial matter. Interpreted by Muslims, the verse deals with matters of life and death!

      The Quran says that the presence of disbelievers causes confusion and corruption in the land, and therefore Muslims must join together to oppose them (8:73).

      Let’s continue….

      5:33 “The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom…”

      So you see, the “peaceful” 5:32 verse is followed by the fine print in 5:33.

      Those who wage war against Allah/Muhammad and/or cause corruption in the earth will be killed, or crucified, or significantly dismembered (to the point of being permanently disabled), or banished (or imprisoned). (The severity of the penalty would depend on the judged severity of the transgression against Islam). In addition, they will be punished in hell (5:33). Allah punishes those who “make mischief in the earth,” subjecting them to a “painful doom” (2:10; 2:11-14).

      Corruption in the land, or corruption/mischief on earth, is a huge category of offenses, violent or non-violent, that significantly go against Islam. Google “corruption on earth” + “death penalty” to get an idea of the range of offenses considered to fit that category today in some strict Islamic countries. These crimes vary widely, including, for a few examples, criticizing or calling for changes in Islamic traditions; practicing “sorcery”; engaging in “charlatanism”; sex between a non-Muslim man and a Muslim woman; highway robbery; destruction of buildings; and terrorism against Muslims.

      War against God, mentioned in 5:33, is also the same kind of huge, flexible category that could include a wide variety of offenses significantly against Islamic doctrine or Islamic society. If this is acceptable killing according to Islam, why should anyone take 5:32 seriously as a peaceful verse? How can this be a verse of peace when it permits Muslims to kill anyone simply for doing or saying something judged to be against Islam?

      Moving on…

      5:34: “Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.”

      Those who surrender to Islam will not be killed nor face the other penalties. They must repent before they are overpowered. Keep in mind that Muhammad was, and encouraged his followers to be, ever wary of hypocrites – those who are merely pretending to repent or submit themselves to Allah. Note that whether or not the person must face the penalties listed in 5:33, including death, depends on whether or not the person surrenders to Islam.

      These passages may also be taken as having a wider application than dealing with individual transgressions. However, in battles or raids, the Quran states that captives should not be taken until a slaughter has first been made (8:67). In that case, obviously, many disbelievers would be killed before even being given the chance to repent. That doesn’t sound like a very “merciful” policy! But one must also keep in mind the general Islamic policy of acting hard against the disbelievers but being merciful to other believers (48:29).

      5:35: “O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah, and seek the way of the approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed.”

      5:36: “As for those who disbelieve, lo! If all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of the Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom.”

      5:37: “They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom.”

      A disbeliever is anyone who doesn’t believe in the one Allah (with no partners or rivals), Muhammad’s validity as a prophet, the eventuality of the Last Day, or who significantly transgresses Islam. The disbelievers are non-Muslims, including non-religious people generally, anyone who strongly questions, criticizes, or mocks Islam, and generally people of all other religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, etc.). They are doomed to hellfire, and there is nothing that can be done about it – except, of course, to convert to Islam exclusively, before it’s too late. Verse 3:85 says that Islam (the “Surrender”) is the only acceptable religion. Those who deny Muhammad’s revelations are evil (7:177). Over 250 separate verses in the Quran condemn non-Muslims to hell-fire/eternal torture and doom.

      Now, the worst possible crime is disbelief in or denial of Allah (10:17, 11:18-19, 18:15, 32:22). It is considered an act or state of aggressive defiance against Allah. The Quran is quite explicit that disbelief is a persecution worse than warfare (2:217) or slaughter (2:191) that involves death of Muslims. Murder of a Muslim is a crime that is penalized according to the law of life-for-life retaliation (5:45; i.e., death penalty), but disbelief is a worse crime! Remember the apologist’s quote, that killing one person is like killing all humankind? If we assume that’s true, then disbelief in Islam is a worse crime than killing all humankind! This sounds like a far-fetched interpretation, but it is a simple logical deduction from what the Quran says. The Quran does not say “disbelief is the second-worst crime, and murder is the worst.” Rather, the Quran clearly and repeatedly states that disbelief is the worst crime.

      Think about this for a moment. Why do some Muslims in some parts of the world go on a rampage, killing people over rumors that a Quran has been damaged? Why do some Muslims kill people who merely criticize Islam or make fun of the prophet? How is it that so many thousands of Muslims demonstrated so violently, calling for the death of Salman Rushdie over some words of fictional characters in that author’s novel? Why do some Islamic countries still officially implement the death penalty for “blasphemy”? Why do some Muslims kill people if women are dressed in bikinis for a beauty contest? Unfortunately, this far-fetched interpretation that I just mentioned is accepted with deadly seriousness, and in accordance with Islamic law in many jurisdictions, by millions of Muslims today. This far-fetched interpretation has been widely accepted by Muslims for nearly 1400 years. Belief in Islam is more important to some Muslims than is human life. And that’s what the Quran says: Disbelief is worse than killing.

      Non-Muslims, according to the Quran, are not considered innocent civilians. They are “guilty” of disbelief (45:31, 83:29) – the worst crime. The Quran says that non-Muslims are against Allah (25:55); on the side of the Satan and are fighting for him (4:76-77); “evil” (16:27, 2:91, 2:99); the “wrong-doers” (2:254, 5:45); the “enemy” and “perverted” (63:4); “wicked” (80:42, 9:125); hypocrites (4:61); “unclean” (9:28). As for whether non-Muslims are civilians, the Quran is not even clear that non-Muslims are fully human. Instead, the disbelievers are the “worst of created beings” (98:6); “miscreants” (2:99, 24:55); “the worst beasts in Allah’s sight” (8:55), “apes” and/or “pigs” (2:65-66, 5:58-60, 7:166), and so on. Verse 60:4 says followers of Allah will hate the disbelievers forever, unless the disbelievers come to believe in Allah only. Think about this thorough demonization of disbelievers, together with the conception of disbelief as the worst possible crime. Now think about how easy it would be for a Quran-believing Muslim to find a non-Muslim guilty of corruption on earth or war against God.

        Now let’s talk about YOUR RELIGION. you little brainwashed imbecile

        The Medieval Inquisition was a series of Inquisitions (Catholic Church bodies charged with suppressing heresy) from around 1184, including the Episcopal Inquisition (1184-1230s) and later the Papal Inquisition (1230s). The Medieval Inquisition was established in response to movements considered apostate or heretical to Christianity, in particular Catharism and Waldensians in Southern France and Northern Italy. These were the first inquisition movements of many that would follow.

        The Cathars were first noted in the 1140s in Southern France, and the Waldensians around 1170 in Northern Italy. Before this point, individual heretics such as Peter of Bruis had often challenged the Church. However, the Cathars were the first mass organization in the second millennium that posed a serious threat to the authority of the Church. This article covers only these early inquisitions, not the Roman Inquisition of the 16th century onwards, or the somewhat different phenomenon of the Spanish Inquisition of the late 15th century, which was under the control of the Spanish monarchy using local clergy. The Portuguese Inquisition of the 16th century and various colonial branches followed the same pattern.

        In 1231 Pope Gregory IX appointed a number of Papal Inquisitors (Inquisitores haereticae pravitatis), mostly Dominicans and Franciscans, for the various regions of Europe. As mendicants, they were accustomed to travel. Unlike the haphazard episcopal methods, the papal inquisition was thorough and systematic, keeping detailed records. Some of the few documents from the Middle Ages involving first-person speech by medieval peasants come from papal inquisition records. This tribunal or court functioned in France, Italy and parts of Germany and had virtually ceased operation by the early fourteenth century.[3]

        Another reason for Pope Gregory IX’s creation of the Inquisition was to bring order and legality to the process of dealing with heresy, since there had been tendencies by mobs of townspeople to burn alleged heretics without much of a trial. Pope Gregory’s original intent for the Inquisition was a court of exception to inquire into and glean the beliefs of those differing from Catholic teaching, and to instruct them in the orthodox doctrine. It was hoped that heretics would see the falsity of their opinion and would return to the Roman Catholic Church. If they persisted in their heresy, however, Pope Gregory, finding it necessary to protect the Catholic community from infection, would have suspects handed over to civil authorities, since public heresy was a crime under civil law as well as Church law. The secular authorities would apply their own brands of punishment for civil disobedience which, at the time, included burning at the stake.[4] Over centuries the tribunals took different forms, investigating and stamping out various forms of heresy, including witchcraft.[5]

          Yes, of course, islam and isis have learned well, isis is to this day burning, crucifying and beheading anyone it can get its hands on. Real religions stopped being murdering subhumans a long time ago, islam, remains subhuman.

        There every legal Islamic organization reject daesh. But inquisition was made by LEGAL AUTHORITY OF CATHOLICISM. Thanks heaven Thanks Allah, Europe is leaving Christianity and Catholicism. So now they got their renaissance. When pagan and tribalistic Arabia embraced Islam, and be united, they become center of word science. What had Catholicism and Christianity contribute to Europe? Nothing. Just jailing scientist. When European become agnostic. They are free to pursue science.

          You have that wrong as usual, muslim men are allowed to have sex with corpses for up to six hours after she is dead. Yo really should get familiar with contemporary islam, it would disgust a normal person.

          By Raymond Ibrahim on May 1, 2012 in Islam, Other Matters

          Aside from provoking shock, disgust, and denial, last week’s news of Egyptian parliamentarians trying to pass a “farewell intercourse” law legalizing sex with one’s wife up to six hours after she dies has yet to be fully appreciated.

          Islamic “Death-Sex”

          An Egyptian cartoon pokes fun at the proposed “farewell intercourse” law. As the spirit of the deceased woman ascends, and as her husband sexually eyes her corpse, she remarks: “O please, man—where were you when I was alive!”

          To start, consider the ultimate source of this practice: it’s neither the Muslim Brotherhood nor the Salafis; rather, as with most of Islam’s perversities—fromadult breastfeeding to pedophiliamarriage—Islamic necrophilia is traced to the fount of Islam, its prophet Muhammad, as found in a hadith (or tradition) that exists in no less than six of Islam’s classical reference texts (including Kanz al-’Umal by Mutaqi al-Hindi and Al-Hujja fi Biyan al-Mahujja, an authoritative text on Sunni Doctrine, by Abu Qassim al-Asbahani).

          According to this hadith, Muhammad took off his shirt and placed it on a dead woman and “lay with her” in her grave. The gravediggers proceeded to hurl dirt atop the corpse and the prophet, exclaiming, “O Prophet, we see you doing a thing you never did with anyone else,” to which Muhammad responded: “I have dressed her in my shirt so that she may be dressed in heavenly robes, and I have laid with her in her grave so that the pressures of the grave [also known as Islam’s “torments of the grave”] may be alleviated from her.”

          What was Muhammad saying and doing? Perhaps his magical shirt would transport the dead woman to heaven, and his blessed body would protect her from the “pressures of the grave”? A more cynical—a more human—reading is that he stripped his shirt as a natural step before copulating; that he precisely, if not sardonically, meant the act of sex would “alleviate” the pressures of death from the corpse; and that the observers covered them with dirt for privacy and/or for shame.

          This interpretation is given much more weight when one considers that the secondary meaning for the word I translated above as “lay with” is “intercourse,” further demonstrating that the proposed Egyptian law is, in fact, based on this hadith: after all, the Arabic root-word used for “intercourse” in the phrase “farewell intercourse” is derived from the same root-word that Muhammad used to explain what he did with the dead woman (d-j-’). As if this was not enough, necrophilia finds more validation in Islam’s legal texts. For example, according to al-Sharwani’s Hawashi, “there is no punishment for having intercourse with a dead woman” and “it is not necessary to rewash the dead after penetration.”

          Incidentally, this issue of “death-sex” far precedes Egyptian parliamentarians. In fact, I first wrote about this macabre topic back in 2009, based on an episode of Father Zakaria Botros, where he explored the perverse sexual habits of Islam’s prophet Muhammad (see here). Interestingly, when that episode first aired, many Muslims were livid, denying the existence of the hadith, and renewing calls to assassinate the priest for trying to “defame” Islam: yet here it is, once again—only this time, the hadith is being passed into a “law,” further documenting the existence, if not legitimacy, of necrophilia in Islam.

          Which leads to another eye-opener: it is no longer this or that “radical” cleric, but parliament members who are, not merely acknowledging bizarre Islamic practices, but trying to implement them as “laws.” (Perhaps this should be unsurprising, considering weeks earlier in Egypt, suit-and-tie wearing Muslim court lawyersattacked with knives a Christian defendant for supposedly “blaspheming” Muhammad.)

          What else do such “parliamentarians” and “lawyers” have in store for Egypt and its neighbors? If this little known, ghoulish practice is being endorsed simply because of one arcane hadith, how much more support must Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament be giving to those other ironclad teachings of Islam—for instance, Muhammad’s unequivocal commands, recorded in hundreds of canonical hadiths, to fight, deceive, and subjugate all non-Muslim infidels?

          When it comes to Islam, it is high time for the West to learn to connect the dots.

        Jesus verses:

        I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled

        Now, as for those enemies of mine who did not want me to be their king, bring them here and kill them in my presence! (PS: The Parable of Ten Minas whereas Jesus is the King, and those who should be killed are the Jews)

        Do you think I came to bring PEACE on earth? NO, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.

        “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.

        In the same way, therefore, every one of you who does not say good-bye to all his possessions cannot be My disciple.

        Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD.

        If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

        And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

        For I came to set at variance ‘A man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,

        He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

        And he [Jesus] said unto them … Ye reject the commandment of God … For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”

        Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

        And throw that worthless slave into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

        ~~~~~~~~~

        Non Jesus verses:

        I do not allow them to teach or to have authority over men; they must keep quiet.

        For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off

        The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

        The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.

        All who are forced to serve as slaves should consider their masters worthy of full respect. Then people will not speak evil things against God’s name and against what we teach.

        Some slaves have masters who are believers. They shouldn’t show their masters disrespect just because they are also believers. Instead, they should serve them even better.

        Women should learn in silence and all humility. do not allow them to teach or to have authority over men; they must keep quiet

        Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says.

          Summary of Koranic quotes regarding women

          Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man, and men are above women. Muslim men may marry up to four wives, including prepubescent girls, and can own sex slaves. Muslims are not allowed to marry non-Muslims, unless the latter convert to Islam. Women must cover themselves and be seen only by relatives, eunuchs, slaves and children who have not yet had sex with women.

          The Koran also contains more equitable commentary on women, although these verses are widely ignored, even or especially in Islamic/sharia law and particularly by “radical” or devout Muslims such as the Taliban, Wahhabis, Salafis and Iranian Shiites. Even in these “equitable” verses the attitude is retained that women are inferior to and possessions of men, to be treated accordingly. Whether or not a master is exhorted to be kind, fair and just to his slaves, the fact of their slavery remains.

          How nice, apostates of the Islamic world once again reveal themselves, the imam of mecca will not be pleased. 1000 semi literate brain washed muslims are mildly opposed to some violence in islam, with the taqiyya chorus chiming in, to the applause of their fan jihadists.

      Combat stupidity. You do a good job spreading stupidity by mouthing the stupidity of the evil charlatan and fraud Muhammad and his mouthpiece the Quran.

      “Virtue” and “Evil” are not equal according to the Quran. But this “Virtue” and “Evil” are not the Christian ideas of Virtue and Evil or modern western ideas of Virtue and Evil.
      In Islam “Virtue” is obedience to the mass murderer Muhammad 58.9 and his commandments to kill the unbeliever 2.191 and “Evil” is disbelief in the lies of Muhammad.9.37

      The charlatan Muhammad was a polytheist idolater before he adopted Jewish and Christian monotheism. Allah the moon god who Muhammad promoted to supremacy over the other gods of Mecca (Allahu Akbar – Allah is the greatest), was not the only creator according to the Quran. Just the best of them. 37.125 The best providor of all the gods 23.72

      According to the Quran the idols of Mecca will come alive on the judgement day and testify against the polytheists. 25.19

      There is no Allah. There was probably no “Moahmmed” Islam is sh*t. The Quran is sh*t. Muslims are sh*t.

    John Kerry called ISIS apostates???????????????????
    ISIS is engaged in the exercise of the purest form of Islam.The purest form is “the active Killing of apostates those who oppose or do not actively support pure Islam.
    Pure Islam is the killing of all infidels, Christians, and Jews wherever you find them as commanded in the Koran.
    Kerry’s commentary seems more in compliance with Taqiyya treachery than with Constitutional Ideals in the protection of America from maniacal Stone age hatred of America.

      Ketchup Kerry, Islamic scholar.

  • Pray Hard

    Ketchup Kerry, THE Islamic scholar for the ages, huh?

  • Barthel

    Kerry was a Naval officer in Viet Nam. Then he protested the war. He is not a loyal American.

  • Doctor Who?

    Exactly when did John Kerry become a scholar in Islamic theology?

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Read all about it on a toilet paper roll.

  • E Wood

    The Sunni states have not declared ISIS apostates. So Kerry thinks he’s the judge of such things? Well, I declare John Kerry to be an apostate Roman Catholic. I said it, so it’s done and done.
