The Allah or Jesus Debate in the Heartland

WACOCITI_1_lg

As we prepare for our Situational Tour of Crawford, Texas this Friday, we have uncovered an editorial in the Waco Citizen. Waco is deep in the American Heartland, a few miles down the road from the President’s Crawford Ranch, where citizens express good old American ideologies such as “Love it or Leave it.” In this editorial, a prison guard attends a meeting with religious leaders and asks the following:

I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world. And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven.

Would you rather have your Allah who tells you to kill me in order to go to Heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven?

And officials are worried about Muslims adopting contradictory religious ideologies…?
