365 is a magic number

The Sundries Shack has an excellent post on Committment (or really the lack thereof). Read the whole thing [sic]!

Perhaps what drives Muslims rage in parge part is our willingness to only talk a good game. We are full of speeches and chest-puffery about our freedom and liberty. We’re also very eager to shrug off any commitment those freedoms bring. Heck, “no commitment” might as well be our national motto today. From marriage to pregnancy to schooling children to picking a cellphone plan, we readily pick the option that makes us the least responsible for our actions. Muslims see that as weakness – a moral failing – and in that they are exactly correct. We are weak. We are immoral.

We have forgotten how to finish the jobs we start, whether we voluntarily started them or not. That is the source of our fear. Hollywood, the MSM, a goodly number of our politicians, none of them can look Islam directly in the eyes because they know, deep in their hearts, that Islam has the will to fight for what it wants and they simply do not. They lost that about the time they, in a marijuana-addled counterculture haze decided that fighting for our high morals was no longer somthing we should actually do but something we could talk about and still reap rewards. They decided that they could simply reward themselves for talking tough about freedom and liberty and peace without actually having to commit to them. They then turned the word “commitment” itself into a jingoistic slogan trotted out to fool the rubes. They replaced courage and conviction with cynicism and “cool” mockery of the very things we need to remain free.

Rev. John Kreson (also quoted in the post) says

We hold the high ground – we believe in individual liberty, we believe in religious tolerance, we believe in women’s rights, we believe in a narrow window for the just use of war – and we should not be afraid to stand tall and to express our outrage at the insane reactions we are seeing across the Muslim world. In fact their actions prove the point made previously in Danish cartoons and the quote from Pope Benedict. It is all well and good to be sensitive but it is quite another thing when Muslims actually manifest what we criticize. It is quite another thing when there is lack of reciprocity in Muslim treatment of Jews and Christians. They have yet to practice what they preach – except for the spread of Islam by the sword and the convert or be killed part.

The groundswelling blog movement is spreading the word to “the rest” of America (you know, the people that MSM/celebrities/politicians believe don’t count). The ones that are now somewhat puzzled and increasingly pissed off that things have gotten this bad. Many, like me, see the parallels to a previous, more naive era (Germany, 1938). Seeing the same mistakes, the same appeasing actions. Many are waking up to recognize the evil that has reinvented itself to threaten the light once again. And we will stand against it, one word at a time.

As always, the best advice is from God. “Do not fear” appears in the Bible 365 times. That’s one for every day. One for every day we fight the evilness in this world.
