APOSTATE "REFORMED" BAPTIST MINISTER JAMES WHITE HAS "KINDRED SPIRIT" IN JIHADI IMAM YASIR QADHI~CLAIMS HE'S LEARNED TRUTH OF ISLAM FROM HIM

 "REFORMED"?: SO SMART, SO EDUCATED, 
BUT YET SO IGNORANT, ARROGANTLY SO, 
MAKES JAMES WHITE DANGEROUS 
TO THE TRUE CHURCH
SHIFTS FROM BEING A CHRISTIAN APOLOGIST 
TO AN ISLAMIC APOLOGIST

John 8:44 - Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
 1 John 4:1 - Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
 2 Timothy 3:13 - But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

"REFORMED" BAPTIST MINISTER JAMES WHITE HAS "KINDRED SPIRIT" IN JIHADI IMAM YASIR QADHI 
BY ROBERT SPENCER
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 
This “dialogue” event between evangelical minister James White and jihadi imam Yasir Qadhi took place in the appropriately named Olive Branch, Mississippi last January, and while we don’t ordinarily write about archival material, this is such a spectacular example of the pitfalls of “interfaith dialogue,” and of going into discussions with Muslim spokesmen without being sufficiently educated about Islamic teaching, that it warrants particular attention.
The event purported to highlight and discuss “agreements and differences” between Christians and Muslims:
 
 White starts out by praising Qadhi effusively, calling him a “kindred spirit” in pursuit of the truth:
 White’s high regard for Qadhi is strange, given Qadhi’s open avowal that Christians are “filthy,” and that Muslims can seize their property and take their lives in jihad:
 But White thinks he knows all about that, and that it is no big deal. This is an excerpt from a very lengthy, windy segment on White’s show:

White not only makes the risible argument that Qadhi never called him “filthy,” and therefore must not think that Christians are filthy, but in the longer segment he also attempts moral equivalence. He says that Qadhi’s calling Christians filthy is essentially the same as Christianity saying that no one is righteous before God, and that the righteousness of human beings is as filthy rags. This ignores the fact that Christianity considers such statements to apply to everyone, Christian and non-Christian, while Islamic statements about the uncleanness of unbelievers (cf. Qur’an 9:28) apply to unbelievers only, for there is in all of Islam a sharp and massive dichotomy between believers and unbelievers: “Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, ruthless to unbelievers” (Qur’an 48:29).
White also claims that Jews, Christians, and Muslims would all agree that idolaters are filthy in God’s sight, and shows no awareness of the fact that the idea that unbelievers are unclean is a live concept among some Muslims, notably Shi’ites. The renowned Ayatollah Sistani classifies unbelievers as unclean, along with pigs, dogs, dead bodies, etc. What Jews or Christians do that?
Regarding Qadhi’s statements about jihad, White notes that Qadhi argues that only a legitimate caliph can declare jihad, and that most Muslims reject the Islamic State’s caliphate. White shows no awareness whatsoever of the fact that in Islamic law, jihad is fard kifaya, a communal obligation from which one individual is free if it is being discharged by others, but it becomes fard ayn, obligatory upon every believer, when a Muslim land is attacked (cf. Umdat al-Salik o9.1-o9.3).
Nor does White appear particularly disturbed by the fact that Qadhi even allows in principle for the seizure of the property of non-Muslims, and the killing of non-Muslims, under some circumstances. White is much more exercised about my supposedly misrepresenting Qadhi by reporting on his words. Apparently, it’s all my fault: in this video (starting at 7:27), White sits next to Qadhi as Qadhi says that “the far right targeted” him, “you know, Spencer and Pamela Geller.” He claims that Geller and I produced a “fabricated audio clip,” referring to the one above of his remarks on jihad; he says that we selectively edited his remarks to — you guessed it — take him “out of context” and make it appear as if he is endorsing jihad against non-Muslims (this is not the same as the audio above, it just has the same cover photo):

White shakes his head when Qadhi mentions our names, clearly in sympathy with Qadhi being victimized by us dastardly Islamophobes. There are just a few problems with this: neither Pamela Geller nor I had anything to do with the production or publication of that audio file. Nor did we, as Qadhi further claims in that video, sic lawyers on him when he tried to get it taken down from YouTube. As anyone can see and as James White could have and should have verified, that audio file was put on YouTube by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, a group I admire but with which I have no affiliation. Nor is Qadhi truthful when he says that the audio was selectively edited so as to give a false impression of his words: in its note on that audio file, APT gives a link to Qadhi’s entire lecture, and notes the time stamps of when he discusses relevant topics. That’s odd behavior if the group really wanted to conceal what Qadhi actually said.
It’s ironic: White, in this lengthy video, scolds people for supposedly not being fair to Qadhi, falsely claims that my intention was to portray Qadhi’s words inaccurately, and self-righteously admonishes Christians that they have to be fair to Muslims even in disagreement. Then he sits by sympathetically as Qadhi lies about Pamela Geller and me, as well as about his own words. I wrote White about this several months ago; he responded contemptuously and refused to correct the record.
In light of White’s manifest credulity in the face of Qadhi’s distortions and outright lies, it is no surprise that he is led around by the nose in Olive Branch, Mississippi. White praises himself, saying that Muslims have come up to him and thanked him for attempting to portray their faith accurately:

That’s wonderful. It is indeed of cardinal importance, if one is writing about Islam or anything else, to portray it accurately. But White’s naivete is touching: are Muslims thanking him for portraying their faith accurately really evidence that he has actually done so? In Islam, it is considered a good thing to conceal the faults of a fellow Muslim, as Muhammad is depicted as saying: “The servant who conceals the faults of others in this world, Allah would conceal his faults on the Day of Resurrection” (Sahih Muslim 6267). The ordinary understanding of slander in the West is that it involves making false charges that defame another person. But in Islamic law, the definition of slander doesn’t involve falsehood. The Shafi’i manual of Islamic law Umdat al-Salik defines “slander” as “to mention anything concerning a person that he would dislike.” Nothing is said about whether or not what is said is true — only that the person would dislike it. Is it possible that the Muslims who thanked White were happy with him because he didn’t slander Islam, i.e., he didn’t reveal what they didn’t want known?
Let’s see. In this segment, Qadhi claims that the Islamic State (ISIS) is a wholly new thing, a phenomenon never before seen in the history of Islam: “I mean, burning people alive in cages?”

“I mean, burning people alive in cages?” He is claiming that was never known before in Islam? What about the followers of Tulayha ibn Khuwaylid ibn Nawfal al-Asad, who left Islam and proclaimed himself a prophet? They were burned alive during the Wars of Apostasy in the early 630s. What about the eleven Catholic monks who were burned alive for proselytizing among Muslims in North Africa in 1272? In the 1590s, the English traveler Fynes Moryson noted that Muslims burned apostates and blasphemers alive: “A Turke forsaking his Fayth and a Christian speaking or doing anything against the law of Mahomett are burnt with fyer.” A later traveler, John Braithwaite, wrote in the 1720s that apostates were burned alive: “Those that can be proved after Circumcision to have revolted, are stripped quite naked, then anointed with Tallow, and with a Chain about the Body, brought to the Place of Execution, where they are burnt.” In Morocco in 1792, 50 Jews were burned alive for refusing to convert to Islam. And on and on and on. There are so many examples of this as to place the Islamic State’s burnings squarely within Islamic tradition. But White just sits there and lets Qadhi lie. Yes, it’s a discussion, not a debate, but does this mean that Qadhi is just allowed to lie with impunity?
The lies continue in this segment:

Qadhi here claims that al-Qaeda and ISIS “are not primarily using this one verse” and “barely use this verse,” that is, Qur’an 9:5, and he falsely claims that “90 percent” of jihadi rhetoric is political, not religious. They certainly discuss political issues, especially in order to justify defensive jihad, but they also couch all of their arguments in Islamic theological concepts. And it’s false that al-Qaeda doesn’t use this verse: Osama bin Laden made clear the importance of this verse in a sermon broadcast by Al-Jazeera on the first day of the Muslim holy day Eid al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice. The sermon began, “Praise be to Allah who revealed the verse of the Sword to his servant and messenger, in order to establish truth and abolish falsehood.” The “verse of the sword” is the name in Islamic tradition for Qur’an 9:5. Al-Qaeda cofounder Abdullah Azzam, in his Defence of the Muslim Lands, quotes Ibn Abidin, a nineteenth-century Islamic jurist, explaining the Qur’an’s stages of development in jihad teaching, and then adds: “Then, they were ordered to fight with conditions, when the sacred months had passed: ‘Then when the sacred months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have past, then kill the Mushrikun wherever you find them.'” This is a quote from 9:5.
Qadhi also claims that no non-Muslim has ever been killed for trying to enter Mecca. In fact, as recently as 2007, some French non-Muslims were killed on the way to Mecca.
Finally, in this video, White claims that there are powerful forces trying to make sure that Muslims and Christians don’t talk to each other. These nameless nefarious forces, according to White, have no regard for the truth, and are using someone White considers an adversary, someone who called him a “Useful Idiot.” These forces supposedly, according to White, supplied this man with his talking points against White and his noble endeavors at Muslim/Christian dialogue. These forces, White says, have political and financial motives — he echoes Islamic supremacists in suggesting that critics of Islam are just in this wonderful life-threatening, reputation-ruining business for the money (what money?). How he professes to know the motives of these unnamed people, he does not bother to explain.
Whoever White has in mind as these nefarious forces (and I think I know, and I think you do, too), they are absolutely right: White is a Useful Idiot par excellence, in his credulity, naivete, and ignorance of Islamic theology, law and history allowing himself to be used by the deceptive jihadist Qadhi. I am all for genuine discussion between Christians and Muslims, but that means that the Christians are informed participants, not gullible fools having their pockets picked by jihadist sharpies. James White is a living, walking object lesson in the dangers of Muslim/Christian “dialogue” when pursued by uninformed and naive Christians, and particularly when pursued by uninformed and naive Christians with a fatuous confidence in their own knowledge and righteousness.

EXCERPTS:
"The second example comes to us from evangelical minister James White who publicly states he learned everything he knows about Islam from Muslim Brother Sheikh Yasir Qadhi, leader of the Memphis (TN) Islamic Center.  The New York Times calls Qadhi  “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam.”  By “conservative” they must mean “jihadi-like.”"

"Qadhi is a sharia scholar and works inside the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement calling for the implementation of sharia and an Islamic state here in America.
Specifically, Qadhi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA).  Qadhi is also the Dean of Academic Affairs and an instructor at the al Maghrib Institute, which has produced a large number of jihadis over the years including Tarek Mehanna, Ramy Zam Zam – the leader of the “Virginia 5,” Daniel Maldonado, Nuradin Abdi (founder of the Al Maghrib’s Ohio Chapter), and others.
Yasir Qadhi has been the keynote speaker at numerous prominent Muslim Brotherhood organizations (eg ICNA), works closely with terrorist organizations like Hamas and its leaders and has a long track record of publicly defending known terrorists such as:  convicted terrorist leader Sami al Aria, convicted terrorist Ali al-Timimi, American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, Tarek Mehanna, and others.
Yasir Qadhi was a trustee at the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas’ Islamic Society of Boston founded by Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.  This is the same ISB which nurtured the Boston Marathon bombers.
Yet, James White publicly stands with Qadhi and lashes out at anyone who brings these facts to light.  It appears Mr. White has not read MB doctrine…"

BEAVER, PA: GOVERNMENT HIGH SCHOOL DICTATES YOU MAY NOT RECITE PRAYER IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST TO GRADUATING STUDENT

 Student Told “We Have to Edit” Personal Graduation Remarks to Exclude References to Christianity

GOVERNMENT HIGH SCHOOL DICTATES YOU MAY NOT RECITE PRAYER IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
 
Editor’s Note: Christians, home school your children.
Moriah Bridges wanted to thank God for His immeasurable blessings on Beaver High School’s graduating class. But she could not, because it was against the law.
The Pennsylvania teenager wanted to offer thanksgiving to the Almighty for parents and coaches and teachers. But again, she could not, because it was against the law.
“Make us selfless. Make us just. Make us successful people, but more than that, make us good people,” Moriah wanted to pray. But that too, was determined to be unlawful.
This is the America – the land of the free, the home of the brave. But it is also a place where a young teenager girl is not permitted to mention the name of Jesus Christ or anything remotely religious in a graduation speech at a public high school.
Moriah Bridges, a member of the 2017 graduating class, was asked to provide what they call the closing exercise at Beaver High School’s graduation on June 2.
She crafted a lovely prayer that mentioned her “Heavenly Father” and her “Lord.”
“Lord, surround us with grace and favor everywhere we go,” she prayed. “Soften our hearts to teach us love and compassion, to show mercy and grace to others the way that you showed mercy and grace to us, even to the ultimate sacrifice. Help us love our brothers and our sisters deeply. Lead us to bless them.”
Unfortunately, Moriah was not permitted to deliver that prayer – thanks to the Beaver Area School District.
On May 31, the district notified the teenager that her prepared remarks were unlawful, unconstitutional, and therefore, impermissible.
“The selected students may still address their class and indicate the things that they wish/hop for their class, but they may not do it in the style of a prayer and most certainly may not recite a prayer that excludes other religions (by ending ‘in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ” or “in the matchless name of Jesus,’” principal Steven Wellendorf wrote to Moriah in a letter.
The principal flat-out told the young lady that prayer – even student-led prayer – is not permissible by federal law.
“I was shocked that the school said my personal remarks broke the law and I was saddened that I could not draw upon my Christian identity to express my best wishes for my classmates on what should’ve been the happiest day of high school,” Moriah said.
Moriah abided by the school district’s edict – and then she contacted First Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s top religious liberty law firms.
“The last lesson this school district taught its students is that they should hide their religious beliefs from public view,” First Liberty Institute attorney Jeremy Dys told me. “That fails the test of the First Amendment.”
It wasn’t Moriah who broke the law, it was the school district, Dys said.
“In short, school officials – in violation of the First Amendment – forced Moriah to censor her personal remarks during the closing exercise of her commencement ceremony merely because of the religious viewpoint of her remarks,” the attorney said. “Because of Dr. Rowe’s instructions, Moriah was muzzled and restrained by school officials on the penultimate day of her high school career.”
The U.S. Department of Education has a long-standing policy regarding student speech – a policy that covers graduation ceremonies.
“Where students or other private graduation speakers are selected on the basis of genuinely neutral, evenhanded criteria and retain primary control over the content of their expression, however, that expression is not attributable to the school and therefore may not be restricted because of its religious (or anti-religious) content,” the policy reads.
Dys is calling for a meeting with school officials – but so far they have not responded.
The school district’s suggestion that Moriah should offer wishes or hopes for her fellow graduates is ludicrous. Moriah was not praying to some sort of fairy godmother. She was praying to Almighty God.
Ironically, by refusing to allow a student to pray in the name of Jesus Christ, the school district excluded the Christian religion.
But these days excluding Christianity to achieve inclusiveness is a standing operating procedure on high school campuses.

Days ago a standing ovation for the simulation of the assassination of the President of The United States. And now, a baseball practice loaded with Republican congressman and staffers became a live mass shooting event. James T. Hodgkinson was identified as the shooter that railed off over 50 shots at the 100 year old traditional event that included children. He was killed by Capitol Police. House Majority Whip was shot in the hip and transported to the hospital along with four others.

Immediately following the event Virginia Governor McAuliffe clumsily called for gun control. Incorrectly claiming

The Belleville News Democrat reports "Hodgkinson is a member of a number of anti-Republican groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”
▪ “The Road to Hell is Paved with Republicans”
▪ “Donald Trump is not my President”
▪ “President Bernie Sanders”
▪ “Illinois Berners United to Resist Trump”
▪ “Boycott the Republican Party”
▪ “Expose Republican Fraud”
▪ “Terminate the Republican Party”
Hodgkinson took a Democratic ballot in the primary election in 2016.

The story was less than an hour old before the left’s violent rhetoric was unleashed.

How far will this go? The left is collectively and publicly embracing homicide as a political solution. We can start by following Hungary's lead and passing laws to rid our country of the hundreds of millions of dollars George Soros is pouring in to set us on an inevitable path towards civil war.
 GOV Mcauliffe From Virginia Interview 
on Virginia Park Shooting
 Alexandria Police press Conference

Police press conference after Steve Scalise and others shot during baseball practice

WASHINGTON — The FBI is now taking the lead in the investigation into a shooting early Wednesday morning at an Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field that left five people injured, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, two Capitol Police officers and a congressional staffer.

At a Wednesday morning news conference, authorities said it’s too early to say what motivated the shooting, which took place shortly after 7 a.m. in the Del Ray neighborhood as Republican lawmakers and staff members practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game to be held at Nationals Park.

CBS News has confirmed the identity of the shooter as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, citing law enforcement officials.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, was shot in the hip and taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where he is in stable condition, according to a statement released by his office. According to the statement, Scalise “was in good spirits” and spoke to his wife by phone before entering surgery.

During a 10:30 a.m. news conference, authorities would not discuss the suspect’s identity or his condition, saying only the shooter is in custody and does not pose a threat to the public, authorities said. Authorities said police exchanged gunfire with the shooter, but would not say if he was injured.

A lone gunman opened fire on Republican members of the congressional baseball team at a practice field in a Washington suburb Wednesday, using a rifle to shower the field with bullets that struck five people, including Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives.

Two members of Mr. Scalise’s protective police detail were wounded as they exchanged gunfire with the shooter in what other lawmakers described as a chaotic, terror-filled ten minutes that turned the baseball practice into an early-morning nightmare. Police said a total of five people were shot, two critically.

Standing at second base, Mr. Scalise was struck, in the hip, according to witnesses, and collapsed as the shots rang out, one after another, from behind a chain-link fence near the third-base dugout. Witnesses said Mr. Scalise, of Louisiana, “army crawled” his way toward taller grass as the shooting continued.

Two law enforcement officials identified the gunman as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Ill., a suburb of St. Louis. The Washington Post first identified Mr. Hodgkinson as the suspect in the shooting.

Poilice said the gunman was wounded and taken into custody after the gunfight with the Capitol Police security detail and local police officers, who arrived minutes after they received plaintive calls for help from those at the field. The F.B.I. said the bureau would take the lead in the investigation, treating it as an assault on a federal officer.
