Despite what the media wants you to think, radical Islam is on the rise across the entire Earth. As it grows, so does the influence of some of their more extreme beliefs. Today, many Muslims harbor very negative attitudes towards non-believers.
In most Islamic countries it is illegal to convert to another religion, and practitioners of other religions can be persecuted, arrested, and punished.
To radical Islam, there is nothing that can’t be banned or attacked. That includes maybe the most harmless, loving, and gentle “holiday” we have…Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day celebrations on Tuesday were banned by authorities in parts of Indonesia and Pakistan, home to Asia’s largest Muslim populations, saying the romantic tradition encouraged casual sex and ran counter to cultural norms.
Not only that but if you’re a Muslim and you decide to celebrate Valentine’s Day, you are considered to be violating the basic tenets of your religion.
While most people think about the “radical” or extremist sects of Islam coming from the Middle East, Indonesia is in Asia. What is reasonable about banning a completely harmless and made-up holiday? Beyond that, since Muslims consider Valentine’s Day a Christian creation, the move is further proof that, despite what Democrats believe, Christians in Muslim-majority countries are facing persecution.
From a literal War on Christmas to destroying Christian houses of worship, the War on Christianity is real and can no-longer be ignored.
President Trump has vowed to prioritize Middle Eastern Christians in his new refugee protocols, and we should applaud this move.
