When do we finally say enough!
This story just slayed me when I read it.
"The Enlightenment happened at half past 12 a.m. in Burger King, Park Royal. I had ordered my food, and a French guy got talking to me and asked, “Are you Muslim?” He said, “Look at this,” and he showed me the cone. I saw it and I thought, “Wow,” like anyone would. He said, “Turn it around.”
I was thinking of my stomach. I was hungry. I would have loved to eat an ice cream. When I saw it, my mouth fell open. I dropped the ice cream. I canceled my order. That was the defining moment of my life.
The Burger King logo is there in Arabic. “Allah” is spelled exactly how it is there, and the Burger King logo is where the ominah should be. Why, there is no way it could be a coincidence. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? How does it spin on something that is static? You cannot spin it around unless you have a mechanical device. You spin it one direction, to the right, and it is offending a billion people. "
Now I certainly understand what the young man in this story feels. I feel the same way each and every time my faith is attached (on a daily basis) from the secular media that thinks that religion is "optional" as long as it isn't too strict. Heaven knows I would be just as upset if BK was selling "Jesus gelato" or "Jehovah's Jello".
"I want to humiliate the person who did this to an extent that he never works again. I’m going to make him see that it was the biggest mistake in his life. I want to meet the guy. I want to ask the guy, “What does this mean to you?” then never see his face again.
In a way, I’m glad he did this to me. It has opened my eyes. The fear of God, the love of God, the love of not letting anyone disrespect God. Even though it means nothing to some people and may mean nothing to some Muslims in this country, this is my jihad. I’m not going to rest until I find the person who is responsible. I’m going to bring this country down. " (emphasis mine)
DUDE - get a grip! I said this before and I'll say it again...do you see Christians acting like this over the DaVinci Code? The blashpemy in TDVC is more offensive to Christians than this should be to Muslims because the blasphemy in TDVC is intentional, whereas the BK mis-use of the name of Allah was unintentional! Islam needs to grow up and start acting like responsible adults! The temper tantrums and threats are turning more and more of the world against you. The time may come when the war against Islamic terrorists truly does become a war against Islam and it will come because of your over-reaction to unintentional slights!
