Sixteen years ago today, America was twinned together in anger and defiance. We hung flags. We spoke to our neighbors, even those with whom we disagreed.

We cried. We walked dazed through the streets of our cities, and clung to each other in our offices.

We prayed. We donated blood, and then we prayed some more. It lasted about a week.

And now we find the September 11, 2001 attacks that murdered 3,000 Americans has bitterly divided our nation. The issue: Islamic tolerance. 

Most American voters believe that modern Islam encourages violence. One side of the debate champions the belief that emotion, under the guise of PC rhetoric, supersedes vigilance and security.

Islam is the most violent worldview in recorded history. No one can argue otherwise.  So why do we call Islam the “religion of peace?”

This swindling supplies Muslims with even more power because they have managed to gain control of anyone with sympathy for a Islamic/Western culture.

The Western first principles of natural rights, liberty, and economic freedom are incompatible with Islam and no amount of politically motivated rhetoric to the contrary will entice Islam to assimilate into Western culture.

Muslims the world over have been fighting tooth and claw for 1400 years, destroying Western societies and nations with the ultimate goal of conquering the world. All told, Islam is responsible for the deaths of over a quarter of a billion people.

In 1931 Fulton J. Sheen penned an essay titled “A Plea for Intolerance.” In it, Sheen writes:

America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance. It is not. It is suffering from tolerance: tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so much overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broad-minded. Tolerance is an attitude of reasoned patience toward evil and a forbearance that restrains us from showing anger or inflicting punishment. Tolerance applies only to persons, but never to truth. Tolerance applies to the erring; intolerance to the error. America is suffering not so much from intolerance, which is bigotry, as it is from tolerance, which is indifference to truth and error.

This September 11th let us remember the innocent lives taken from their families, friends, and livelihoods, as well as the countless numbers of public service workers who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that some might live; let us also consider what we truly value—human life—over what some of us simply want—tolerance.
