First they infiltrated, and we did not see them…

did not see them as an enemy.

Then they spoke out, and we defended them…

we defended them as one of our own.

Then they attacked us, using our own laws…

using our own laws turned against us.

Then they denied us, demanding to use Sharia…

to use Sharia Law instead of our own.

Then they supported Sharia, being then the precedent…

then the precedent raised up and over our own.

Then they demanded rights, the right to Sharia for all…

and Sharia for all cost us our way of life… like in Holland.

This is patterned after the poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller‘s,”First they came… ,” and is in line with thoughts of what happens when there is political apathy and pacifistic views- when tolerance would be seen as a sign of weakness. Since Sharia Law comes from a theocracy… it would (incontrovertibly) inspire those under it to use it over laws of a simple democracy- being more relevant than the democracy itself. Today, it is both Jews and christians around the world under the strict hand of persecution. If you find this unsettling… how would you feel if it happens, continues or worsens?

First They Came For The Communists

First they came for the Communists,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me,

and by that time there was no one

left to speak up for me.

[below is found an abstract from this location]

The mind as one’s organ of spiritual consciousness is meant to be pure (2 Peter 3:1), but the opposite possibility exists (Col 1:21). The entire mind/way of thinking must be inclined toward God and in harmony with him (2 Cor 10:5), and this requires knowing that, left to itself, it tends in another direction.
