Religion of peace
We understand Ambassador Dermer’s wish for a future for Muslims that is tolerant and peaceful – it is a view we once shared after traveling extensively in the Islamic world and living among secular Muslims. However, it is a dream that is fast disappearing because the forces of “militant Islam” are not perverting Islam as some have suggested, rather they are following its tenets to the letter.
The Christian message and the story of Christ's journey on Earth begin and end with the word "peace." In these troubled times when Christians are being tested and when part of that test is parsing the truth from the multitude of lies about the moral equivalence between Christ’s message of peace and the violence and depravity of another “religion of peace,” we urge you take to heart the certainty of the message of peace Christ bestowed upon us.
