It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Anything goes: Why the double standard with Terry Jones and Islam?


The Rev. Terry Jones has been called everything from a nutjob to a rabble-rouser to a Christian fraud.

It seems like the entire American population has risen up against the Florida pastor, who has been critical of the Islamic religion and has made bold threats to burn that religion's most cherished book, the Quran, because he believes that it promotes evil in the world.

You probably haven't met a person yet who hasn't called Jones a name or two. Face it, he's been publicly vilified for his provocative statements, probably like no one since the Rev. Pat Robertson, who's made a number of controversial statements during the course of his public life.

But here's what, frankly, I don't understand.

Jones' life and actions and beliefs are thoroughly scrutinized and criticized, and no one has a problem with lambasting the guy. In fact, most people have passed judgment on him and joined in on the Jones-bashing, and are delighted to do so.

But when a Congressional committee is formed to discuss the impact of the Islamic religion on America and American Muslims, there is a huge uproar about it being a "witch-hunt."

When a Muslim Army officer in Fort Hood, Texas murders 13 people and injures another 29 while shouting praises to Allah, we're asked not to focus on the man's religion as a motive for the slaughter.

When a Muslim sniper was terrorizing citizens in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland back in 2002, the aspect of religious motivation was downplayed in the news.

When the 9-11 attacks occurred, we were urged to not retaliate against Muslims and to remember that this is a religion of "peace," as President Bush described it.

When a Muslim was arrested in Detroit for attempting to blow up a plane a few years ago at Christmas, there was little or no public outcry over his religious motivation.

When an Oregon Muslim was arrested last year for attempting to set off a car-bomb during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, the news quickly faded from the front page headlines.

Attack after attack after attack has been made against Americans in the name of "Allah" and motivated by the Islamic religion, but the media have yet to put it in the spotlight the way they have with Jones and his beliefs. Americans have not risen up to demand answers from the religion's supposed "moderate" leaders as to why so many attacks are occurring and to demand that they stop.

If it's Jones and his beliefs, we're supposed to shame him and his followers.

If it's an Islam-motivated crime, with Americans actually being killed, we're supposed to be tolerant and understanding and keep in mind that all Muslims are not like that.

That, I don't understand.

Allah - The Moon god

The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the Moon-god (see: Deut. 4:19;17:3; II Kings. 21:3,5; 23:5; Jer. 8:2; 19:13; Zeph. 1:5, etc.) When Ancient Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the Moon-god. As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, steles, pottery, amulets, clay tablets, cylinders, weights, earrings, necklaces, wall murals, etc. In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead.

The pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc. The hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

The Muslim's claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles. Islam is refuted by solid, overwhelming archaeological evidence.  Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult.  It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god.  As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by every born again Christian.

FYI, this is from an ISLAMIC web site(concerning the explanation of Isa) - so obviously, Warren-apologists can't accuse anyone of "showing bias".

http://imrannazir.tripod.com/islam/christ/isa.html#life

EARLY LIFE OF PROPHET ^ISA(Jesus)

Lady Maryam took ^Isato Egypt where they stayed for a period of time. Then they returned to the countries of ash-Sham--to a city known as an-Nasirah. ^Isa, peace be upon him, studied the Torah in the schools and memorized it. He spoke Syriac, the language of the people of Palestine at that time, and the language in which the Heavenly Book, called the Injil, was revealed to him. He was a pious worshipper of Allah, following the rules of the Torah revealed to Prophet Musa.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE REVELATION OF PROPHETHOOD
Allah sent the Revelation of Prophethood to ^Isa when he was thirty years old. Allah revealed to him new laws which abrogated some of the laws revealed to Prophet Musa. Prophet ^Isaconveyed the revelation to the people and called them to believe in his message.
 
Prophet ^Isa, like all the prophets of Allah, performed miracles. Allah sent all the prophets with miracles as a proof to their prophethood, so the people would witness, know about them, and believe in their prophethood. Many of Prophet ^Isa's miracles were in curing illnesses, to be a stronger proof of his truthfulness, since the people at his time were famous for being knowledgeable in the field of medicine. Prophet ^Isa cured those with seemingly incurable illnesses. Prophet ^Isa cured a man inflicted with leprosy. He put his honorable hand on the face of a man who was born blind and cured his sight. Once Prophet ^Isa supplicated to Allah to bring back to life one person who had died and was being carried to the burial place, and Allah brought this person back to life.
 
Prophet ^Isa had other kinds of miracles also. He formed the shape of bats from clay and then they would fly away a distance. One of the miracles of ^Isa is mentioned in the Qur'an in Surat al-Ma'idah, Verses 112-114, which tells about one time when Prophet ^Isaand the people who were with him reached to a place where there was not enough food for all the people with him. The students of ^Isaasked him to supplicate Allah for food which would come down on them from the sky. ^Isa made supplication to Allah and the angels brought down the food on a piece of material before the eyes of the people. Hundreds and hundreds of people ate from that food, and there was no sign the food had diminished in quantity. This miracle increased the belief of the believers. The blasphemers however, claimed ^Isahad performer sorcery on their eyes.
 
 
After his revelation, Prophet ^Isalived on earth for about three years. He used to travel from place to place calling people to the proper worship of Allah. He was so detached from the worldly matters that he did not worry that he did not have a house to return to at night. He used to sleep wherever the night would fall on him, whether he was in an open land or in a sheltered place. He wore clothing made out of unwoven wool. He ate from the raw plants of the earth, without desiring to cook them. He did not marry or have children.

WOY would be pulling muscles from reaching for the ban button so fast. Cheesy

Actually, you got to watch this kind of stuff even at PPF. Sometimes you don't even have to say anything direct and people go off, as I had towards me recently. I was accused of Arab hating when I commented about the Laura Logan story. Apparently the then current Dig-ite wasn't happy I didn't take Logan's side of the Egypt story in full. I guess it was one of the female Dig-ites turn at the profile. Roll Eyes

Koran-Burning Pastor Who Is Wanted Dead or Alive By Al Qaeda Has a Surprising New Gig

Terry Jones, the Koran-burning pastor known for infuriating Muslims across the globe, has reportedly taken on a new profession: running a french fry joint inside of a Florida mall.

Jones’ company, Fry Guys Gourmet Fries, which he co-founded, uses a sketch of the infamous reverend’s face in its logo. His likeness is also featured in a drawing hanging on the fast-food restaurant’s wall, which is located inside of a mall food court, the Bradenton Herald reported.

“At first I thought the pictures would not be so recognizable,” Jones, head of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, told the outlet when a reporter called to discuss the new business venture. “They were supposed to be more of a cartoon type of thing.”

Controversial Pastor Terry Jones stands at a small protest at the site of the Park 51 proposed mosque.


His image has since been removed after Robert Tackett, the mall manager, was made aware of Jones’ past controversies, but the reverend said that his sketch will remain part of the Fry Guys logo.

Jones also said that he and his partners have big plans for the business, which they hope to turn into a chain.

Both Jones and Tackett, who told the Herald that he was unaware of the preacher’s fiery past before signing a lease with him, said that the fry chain has only had positive reviews thus far from customers.

But some might wonder — especially in light of Wednesday’s terror attack on Charlie Hebdo — what security concerns Jones’ presence could pose at the mall, if any, especially considering the past anger and violence he has incited across the globe.

Tackett told the Herald that a member of the intelligence unit at the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office contacted him this week and said that there are currently no security concerns.

As for Jones, he said he’s not too worried, despite the fact that he’s reportedly listed in second place as being wanted dead or alive on an Al Qaeda poster that has circulated on social media.

“We’re not fearful, and we’re not going to run and hide,” Jones said. “If they (terrorists) come, we’re going to try to get them before they get us.”

TheBlaze has reported on how Jones’ past actions and rhetoric that have enraged Muslims, including his involvement in an anti-Islam film and the burning of the Koran, the revered Islamic holy book.
