Tea Party Presidential Candidate Herman Cain: Muslims Will Either Convert You Or Kill You

Tea Party Presidential Candidate Herman Cain: Muslims Will Either Convert You Or Kill You

Is America really at a point where someone who claims Muslims are either going to convert you or kill you thinks he can be president?  Apparently, if you run as a Tea Party star, the answer is yes.  Or so Herman Cain believes.

Via Think Progress:

At one point, Christianity Today reminded Cain about an incident where he was a “little uncomfortable” finding out that his cancer surgeon’s name was Abdallah until he “found out he was a Lebanese Christian.” The magazine followed up by asking, “So what’s your perspective on the role of Muslims in American society?” Cain responded by saying that, while he thinks that Muslims do have a right to practice their religion in America, he resents when they try to convert Americans because their religion instructs them to convert all “infidels” or kill them:

CT:When speaking about your battle with cancer at the Milner church, at one point, you indicate that you were a little uncomfortable when you found out that your surgeon’s name was Abdallah, until you found out he was a Lebanese Christian. So what’s your perspective on the role of Muslims in American society?

CAIN: The role of Muslims in American society is for them to be allowed to practice their religion freely, which is part of our First Amendment. The role of Muslims in America is not to convert the rest of us to the Muslim religion. That I resent. And so I push back and reject them trying to convert the rest of us. And based upon the little knowledge that I have of the Muslim religion, you know, they have an objective to convert all infidels or kill them.

Although that attitude probably endears Cain to some of his Tea Party backers, rather than rightfully offends them, it’s hard to imagine any mainstream candidate thinking it would work well in a president.  Even if he could get elected without winning any votes from the American Muslim population, there are still Muslims in the world that would need to be talked to, regardless of his utter Islamophobia.

The man speaks the truth...anyone that denies that is either trying to be PC or is ignorant of the fact....

1500 years of history prove that....Muslims have been at war with the world since the birth of the Islam and have violently been trying to convert "infidels" since....

Fundamentalist Muslims are simply interpreting what the Koran says literally (to fight and kill non believers and to convert them by force) and are just simple acting out what their "good book" tells them to do....

A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit....the problem is the tree of Islam is from the Devil...those that believe in it....and interpret the Koran literally are responsible for almost all the wars currently being fought on earth today have been fighting the rest of us for 1500 years...Herman speaks the truth....which is refreshing when most politicians try to sparce words to be PC....if anyone wants to refute what I am saying....here is a chronological history of Islam since its founding....notice how many times the words battle, war, invasion, conquest, campaign, occupy, rule, revolt, killed, assinate, power....appear in the chronological history of the so called "religion of peace" :

Your right iam a little Paranoid about the muslims and bible thumpers . when you take the bible and the quran and use it to put fear into others then i really dont want to associate with you or any group . having god or jesus or any god of another religion should make you a better loving person who doesnt want to kill or harm one another but try like heck to love and get along with all people.

Okay. So the Quran is not exactly the friendliest book on earth. Neither is Bible, actually. And there are quite a few Christians who follow every demand of the Bible.

I understand this fear, of course it sucks to think that someone will attack you. But. Have they attacked you yet?

Can anyone say "Paranoid Schizophrenic"?

John Hall, maybe SOME are that extreme, but to say that all of them are going to convert or kill us is believing in some sort of paranoid conspiracy theory. Most of them are very good people.

What's really insulting is him admitting that he does have very little knowledge about the Muslim religion, yet so vehemently believe that Muslims either convert you or kill you...

WHAT??!

9:27AM PDT on Mar 25, 2011

So let me get this straight. It's okay for Christians to proselytize and try to convert others, but not Muslims. What a hypocrite. From Cain's own mouth: "And based upon the little knowledge that I have of the Muslim religion, you know, they have an objective to convert all infidels or kill them." Yes, Cain. We do (now) know how VERY LITTLE knowledge you have on the subject of Islam based on that statement alone. You are just laughable.

What an ignorant idiot!

@SHARAFINA
My dear ‘Tila Taquiyya’, WHY do you LIE re: ISLAM'S CORE GOALS FOR WORLD CONQUEST?

* You’re WILLINGLY committing "Taquiyya"; that is, LYING to protect Islam using HALF-TRUTHS, which is ENCOURAGED for Muslim/as to do in the Koran: 3:28!

('Taquiyya')
K 3:28 - "Let not the believers take those who deny the truth for their allies in preference to the believers – since he who does this cuts himself off from God in everything – unless it be to protect yourself against them in this way...”

* The NASKH/'Abrogation' text (K 2:106) allows the EARLIER, kinder, gentler, 'fluffier' verses that Mo-Mo received to be OVERRULED by the LATER, harsher, crueler, BLOODIER verses he received, as EVERYONE KNOWS!

('NASKH'):
K. 2:106: "If We abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or one similar...."

* So, you can FIRST say: K. 2:256 - "Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clearly from error.”

SECOND, you apply the 'ABROGATION' text & PRESTO, K. 2:256 may be replaced with K. 9:5: 'Verse of the Sword':
“When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.”

NASKH/'Abrogation' CANCELS OUT OVER 120 verses in the 'fluffier' vein in favor of the MURDEROUS verses, as EVERYONE KNOWS!

So, DON'T LIE & INSULT PEOPLE WHO ARE EDUCATED IN THAT EVIL, HATE-BASED DEATH-CULT!

Pres. Thomas Jefferson remarked, the Koran is "demonic."
