"The Root" Writers Suggest We Show Radicalized Muslims How Much We Love Them

According to "The Root," Tina Opie, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of management at Babson College. She is a thought leader on issues of identity and diversity and an advocate for social justice. Tracey M. Lewis-Giggetts is a writer and educator whose work often examines the intersection of faith and spirituality with race and culture.

Franklin Graham [from FaceBook}
  • Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in ‪#‎Chattanooga yesterday including a policeman and another Marine—all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait. We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled. Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized—and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn’t allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor did we allow Germans. Why are we allowing Muslims now? Do you agree? Let your Congressman know that we’ve got to put a stop to this and close the flood gates. Pray for the men and women who serve this nation in uniform, that God would protect them.
They make this rather lame claim: 

  •  If the horrifying shooting in Chattanooga can drive him to suggest a complete banishment of Muslims, then it would seem as though any terrorist act on our soil would do the same. Yet there is no suggestion that Dylann Roof, the man charged with walking into a Charleston, S.C., church and shooting nine African Americans solely based on his racist beliefs, and anyone like him should be banned from our country because they, too, have the potential to be “radicalized” and “do their killing to honor” their white supremacist beliefs.
 The problem with this attempt at "logic" is that Roof didn't yell "Alla Akbar" and have a Muslim name and history. 

Reminiscent of Obama's approach to warfare by offering education and a job, they float this:

  • Jesus calls us to be peacemakers; our words can challenge and, through the Holy Spirit, convict, but they should never bring strife (see Romans 14:19). In fact, the Scriptures recount over and over again the importance of standing up for the disenfranchised and seeing justice for those who are the “least of these.”

When Opie or Lewis-Giggetts goes to the middle east and sits down with ISIS members and tell them that exact very thing, I'll say I was wrong about their "Theory." If they survive. Until  then, it's a suicide pact much like the way Obama is playing the USA against ISIS and we are being attacked more and more on the homefront. In this case, you can't just pick out Bible verses and then call it a recipe for survival against radicalized Muslims. Expect the attacks to continue until the current administration realizes that there is an enemy and, so far, they have all been Muslim or Muslim radicalized 

Dylann Roof, if I am to accept the liberal narrative, was radicalized by a Confederate Flag.
