Parsley, who lives and ministers in Columbus, Ohio, a city with a significant Muslim population, had strong words about Islam.
"The fact is that America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed," Parsley said. "That's why I believe Sept. 11 2001 was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore. Islam is responsible for more pain, more bloodshed, and more devastation than nearly any other force on the earth."
Parsley continued. "I look to the horrors of Sudan, and I find slavery, massacre and traumatic human upheaval of the sort that even beleaguered Africa has seldom seen. Unless Islam is checked from without and reformed, at the least, from within, it will become a force that shapes the future of our world as much as any other on earth."
Isn't that what they said about Communism?
Isn't that what the Communists said about capitalism?
Isn't that what the Muslims say about Christians?
But if Parsely is so concerned about slavery, maybe he can talk to Tom DeLay about his support for the near-slavery conditions in Guam he supported.
