A Messianic Jewish leader is outraged that officials at the Minnesota State Fair recently gave a group of Muslims great access to fairgoers so they could distribute Islamic propaganda.The "Great Minnesota Get-Together" is one of the largest and best-attended state fairs in the country. And according to The Washington Times, when fairgoers exited the recent event, they were greeted by a Muslim couple who were passing out glossy cards that read "Islam Explained" on one side and had about a 180-word background on Islam on the other. ...read more: http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=1162446

"Markell is also upset that the Muslims were given better access to the fairgoers than permitted for Christians who were trying to hand out gospel tracts."This is the part that is more disturbing, however not surprising.
are we as American's really THAT committed to freedom?what that muslim couple did is really no different than a good Godly couple handing out tracts about Jesus, is it?if we take away their freedom to "evangelize", what have we become?Why are fearful of islam? We have the Reality of the Son of God, Jesus, Crucified, Ressurected , Who's Blood cleanses us of all sin. We have the Word of God, what is better than that?How could islam, and the koran ever measure up, so why the fear, and why this roiling tide of hostility towards muslims who live in America?that kind of hostility can lead us to places i dont think we as Americans really want to go, unless of course, one DOES want to drink of that cup, cup of blood.in Joel, the prophet did say "all flesh", did he not?
I don't think it's anything to do with losing our "freedoms" in a patriotic sense. But instead goes clear back to Ishmael and Isaac. The coming of Christ's return. The coming of persecution that we in America are not yet prepared for.Michelle
