A Voice in the
Recently a subscriber forwarded the URL to an article at FrontPageMagazine.com entitled "Symposium: to Rape an Unveiled Woman" At the top, just under the title and opening credits, a picture of a woman, hair and face all covered in blood, soaking down to her shirt, with the caption: "Victim of Muslim gang rape in Sweden"
There is also a Muslim mindset regarding non-Muslim peoples, to help explain the growing epidemic of rapes of western women by muslim males: that non-Muslim women, because they do not cover up their bodies as Muslims do, that they are -deserving- of 'punishment'; and that it is the 'duty' of Muslim males to punish them. When Muslim males gang rape a western woman, they are performing religious moral duty to punish and humiliate her for her (alleged) immorality in presenting herself publicly in a 'provocative' manner. We'll come back to this concept in a moment.
Does God command anywhere in Scripture that women should wear a burkah? That she should be covered head-to-toe, with only peep-holes to see through? I've never found it.
On the other hand, perhaps this 'cultural' clash we are seeing today might help give us insight into Paul's teaching that is often debated as to its meaning, about the woman's head covering, the veil. (1Co11:3-10) Paul is not talking about women wearing 'doilies' perched atop their coifed hairdos while "in church", but is talking about, among other things, the woman's 'place' -under- her man's authority. (vs3,7,10)
If Abraham's servant put a nose ring on Rebekah (Gen24), she was obviously not wearing a burkah; her face was visible. If Peter speaks of women who fix up their hair (1Pet3:3), does not the context suggest that a burkah is not involved; and Peter does not tell women to stop letting their hair be seen and cover it up with a burkah; but he speaks of the "meek and quiet spirit" (vs4)
In such an ancient culture, the daughter of Jacob was molested by Shechem. According to the heathen culture, as Islam is today, the male had the presumed 'right' to grab an unattached female and do with her as he wished. But within Jacob's (Godly) family they said it was a thing "which ought not to be done" (Gen34:7) It was not considered wrong for a young woman to be noticed as being beautiful, even having a nice "figure". (Gen29:17, De21:11, Es2:7) But for what Shechem had done to Dinah, the sons of Jacob destroyed and plundered them. (Gen34:25-27)
Islam, when a young woman becomes pregnant, minus a husband, takes the woman, buries her in the sand up to her neck, and stones her head till she dies. And our western sensitivities 'gasp!' in horror at the unenlightened barbarity. After all, look at "single motherhood" as it is praised in our feminist society, as sitcom's 'Murphy Brown' promoted and paraded it some years ago.
But, isn't that what God told Israel to do? Not the burying in sand, but the "stoning"?
Or... what -did- God command?
"...then you shall bring them -BOTH- out to the gate of that city, and you shall stone -THEM- to death with stones, the young woman because she did not cry out in the city, and the man because he has humbled his neighbor’s wife; thus you shall put away the evil from among you." (De22:24)
The scribes and pharisees confronted Jesus one day with an Islamic ideal: "...this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.." (Jn8:4)
So... what's wrong with that picture? According to De22:24 (and other similar passages), what was missing? Who did they leave out? If they caught -her- "in the act", then it was obvious there was NO QUESTION as to 'whom' she was with, as it takes "two to tango"; why did they not also cart the 'guilty' -man- in before Jesus?
How did Jesus handle the situation? "He who is without sin AMONG YOU, let him throw the first stone at her" (vs7) And everyone of those who brought the accusation filed out, one by one. They -all- had been with her? She had been their mutual play-thing? Apparently!
"You who say, Do not commit adultery, do you commit adultery?" (Rom2:22)
Some of the most lust-filled dirty-ol-man gawks my ex-wife (unequal yoke) used to endure (she was 'beautiful' in appearance) were in the pharisaical, KJ-only, "independent" churches that preached strongly on "morality" issues (not the 'liberal' churches), and might also have had "lists" related to behavior and dress. And of course, the wives did not scold their lustful husbands, but would instead (as that Pantene commercial used to say) "hate [her] because she was beautiful".
What did Jesus say to men? "...whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." (Mt5:28) And in that context, Jesus did not condemn genuine feminine beauty.
No! Muslim males (I will not validate them by calling them "men". Real "men" do not do what they do! They are -males-, like dogs in heat, panting after "Jihad" for their 'countless' paradisal virgins, to do to them more of the same!) are NOT carrying out God's law of moral purity. God never commanded the punishment of immorality by the perpetration of further immorality upon the guilty parties! These sick animals are only getting their 'jollies' in a 'pack' mentality!
Godly men are exhorted, "Drink waters out of your own cistern, and running waters out of your own well. Should your springs be dispersed abroad, like streams of water in the streets? Let them be only your own, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth, as a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times, and always be intoxicated in her love." (Pr5:15-19) and also: "He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from Jehovah." (Pr18:22)
However, while that passage is an exhortation to the man, regarding his own wife and marriage, much more of Proverbs is warnings about the "strange woman", the seductress.
So now it's time to do, as promised: Get 'in-your-face' a moment. If you don't want truth, now's the time to stop reading.
Back to that Swedish rape 'victim'... if one were to look at the picture carefully, the woman, even though all bloodied, it was obvious from the eye makeup that she was in the habit of making herself up to look seductive and alluring (like Jezebel with "black paint on her eyes" 2Ki9:30); something done -to- get the attention of men, for the purpose of mating. Males noticed, and in their own depravity, they had their way with her. She got what she 'invited' by her attire. Such attire is for the whole -purpose- of 'alluring' men. To that end she was 'successful'. She wore lots of makeup, and she got lots of men. They took notice, and responded with their own baser animal instincts.
I've heard of it regarding chickens, where a dead hen will be found where she had been gang raped by the young barnyard roosters; and see it regularly each season with the neighborhood sparrows, where the young unattached males will gang up on lone females. It is 'animal' instinct; "as -brute- beasts" (Ju1:10 kjv)
Islam talks about the "unveiled" woman as being 'fair game'. Paul speaks of the woman being "veiled" in the same context as being under her husband's "authority" (1Co11); something that today's 'liberated' woman is -NOT-. Peter speaks of the "meek and quiet spirit" (1Pet3:4); something else that today's woman, typically, is -NOT-. Today's woman is typically like the "strange woman" ... "She is boisterous and stubborn; her feet do not settle down in her own house." (Pr7:11)
The mentality and lusts of today's western society can be summarized by observing a typical evening's prime time commercials: Victoria's Secret women posing, mostly naked and alluring, like 007 "James Bond women". (Stop it!!) That's what I yell at the TV as I... Change channels: Pizza Hut "poppin" commercials with Jessica Simpson (the preacher's daughter) seducing the poor simple school boy nerd. (Stop it!!) Change channels: the 'Slim-fast' wiggling red dress. (Stop it!!) Change channels: the girl in the clothing store's changing room, turning on her iTunes so she can start writhing seductively to the music in strip-tease girations. (Stop it!!) Change channels: a promo for an upcoming featured story for the evening news, of some female exotic dance group, provocatively girating and the camera zooms in on a posterior as she is stooping over seductively. (Stop it!!) No more channels to flip to...! Some celebrity appears on a talk show and you never quite know what to expect: for all their wealth, they seem to be lacking sufficient for enough material to cover themselves, but like paupers, dress in 'tatters' of cloth, that you wonder how certain things will stay in place without "wardrobe malfunctions".
Should women wear burkas? God never commanded Israel to do so, and it doesn't seem that their culture included it; and He never condemned them for not wearing them.
But Islam is hypocritical. They decry western corruption calling us "infidels", full of immorality (which is true); just like communism used to decry western 'decadence' (which is also true); and yet some of the worst sex trade and slavery in the world comes out of Russia and eastern Europe. In the same way, they've shown scenes from Afghanistan of Muslims beating women if, horrors!, the woman's -face- was seen; because she was being "indecent". But their men see nothing wrong with raping women, even within their own families and households.
But let's take a look at the female culpability:
If one is out camping, if you don't want bears pillaging through the camp site and mauling you, you don't leave food or the scent of food out where they can get to it.
Yes, men are 'beasts'. I'm a man, and grew up around other males, and remember what gym class locker room talk was like; or the conversations at certain jobs where people jest amongst themselves the way they do. During college I also did janitorial work, and thus saw what was written on both male and female public restroom walls. And whereas, as a Christian, I had thought the male locker room talk was filthy; it was nothing compared to what I saw in the female restrooms. I would have to say that females 'want' it even more than males want to give it to them!
And indeed, in society in general: they may have the token sexy male depictions, but PREDOMINANTLY it is the FEMALE that is made out to be the -object- of desire and allure. It is so ingrained that even 'innocent' girls of average families getup themselves at 14, to look and act like 18.
Thus, is it any wonder that western females are being raped by pagan savages! Sorry, feminists! But indeed, they -ARE- 'asking' for it. When an American coed 'disappears' whilst vacationing in a Gulf paradise island, and they show the picture of the one who is missing, her makeup and attire is that of a harlot; and she had been bar-hopping at the time she disappeared. As much as I might 'feel' (in sympathy) for that family... WHAT ELSE DID THEY ALL EXPECT!?!
Yes. Our western female is a generation of harlots. And the commercial for Valtrex declares, when they have "outbreaks" due to their promiscuity, "It's my life! I want to live it the way I want to!" In other words: I don't want to be held back from my sin, by the (God-devised) shackles of sin's -consequences-. I want to be able to keep sinning as much as I want.
Well, "God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." (Ga6:7)
When God brought Israel out of Egypt, He sent them into the land of Canaan to, among other things, 'cleanse' the land of its uncleanness. In today's terminology with medical understanding, that's "viruses" and STDs. When Israel conquered, they were to utterly destroy every living thing: people and animals. (Yes, even from pagan bestiality) And before entering the land, when Moses sent the armies to "excute vengeance on the Midianites" and the men saved the women alive, he retorts to them, "Have you kept alive all the women and let them live? Behold, these women caused the sons of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague (i.e. virus/disease) among the congregation of Jehovah. Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known a man by lying with a male." (Num31:15-17)
If God did it then, at the hand of Israel, He's going to do it again. That was one of the factors for why He sent Noah's flood: the earth had become "corrupt" in its "generations". (Gen6:9,11) When the earth's population is ultimately reduced down to 10% of what it is now, in large measure -that- is going to be one of the reasons... to clean up the corruption. There is such a global Aids epidemic in Africa. And one wonders what diseases are traveling in the Muslim world. Not to mention the rest where there is rampant sex trade and slavery, and in our 'free' societies... "free sex" without any sense of inhibitions or propriety.
Africa is suffering death from HIV. South Asia, where sex trafficking is a brisk business, suffered its tsunami. N.Orleans, known for its corruption and Mardi Gras debauchery had Katrina.
And these things are just the beginnings!
And as long as the western woman insists on being a slut, let the rapes continue! Yes, you read that right! ...LET THEM CONTINUE! She is asking for it; give to her according to her lusts!
In just now looking up that word, I didn't realize this before, but "slut" is also a term for a female dog. So, let the males come around in packs, sniffing, and do with her as dogs do...as litters are often born with pups from various 'different' fathers.
They worship the Queen of Heaven, and gad about in emulation of her? They then also share in her judgment. This is God's judgment...
"Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground. There is no throne for you, O daughter of the Chaldeans. For you shall no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones and grind meal. Uncover your veil, strip off the skirt, bare the thigh, pass through the rivers. Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, your shame shall be seen; I will take vengeance and I will not meet you as a man. Our Redeemer, Jehovah of Hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel. Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans; for you shall no more be called the Queen of Kingdoms." (Is47:1-5)
Today's woman worships at the altar of Isis, Aphrodite, Venus, etc.
"For her sins have reached to Heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. By however much she has glorified herself and lived luxuriously, by the same amount give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow. Therefore her plagues will come in one day; death and mourning and famine." (Rev18:5-8)
You, who think you are a "Christian" and are thus 'blessed'; but are behaving like the world?
"Furthermore Jehovah says, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched out necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and make a tinkling with their feet; therefore Jehovah will attach scabs to the top of the head of the daughters of Zion; and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, and their headbands, and their crescents of the moon, the pendants, and the bracelets, and the veils; the turbans, and the leg ornaments, and the sashes, and the perfume boxes, and the amulets; the rings and nose jewels; the festal apparel and the outer garments; and the mantles, and the purses; the mirrors and the fine linen; and the turbans and the veils. And it shall be, instead of a smell of perfume, there shall be an odor of decay. And instead of a belt, a rope. And instead of well set hair, baldness. And instead of a rich robe, a girding of sackcloth; and branding instead of beauty." (Is3:16-24)
Those are not my words... It is God's Word!
