Michael Coren Proves

Once again that his Christianity ends before the Gospel of Matthew. My "favorite" section of his column was his "Well the Americans are better than the Islamists and Castro". If the bar was set any lower, it would be underground.

As with all of the tiny Tories, Coren's main concern is with using Omar Khadr as a way to punish the Khadr family. Obviously, Mr. Coren has missed this little teaching from his Messiah (not surprising really since it is in Matthew 5:38-40 and 43-48):
38"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'[a] 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well.

43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor[b] and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[c] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Coren also missed this little gem from Matthew 18: 21-22:
21Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?"

22Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Ideas like "Love your enemy" and "Forgiveness" are too girly for Coren's religion, I guess. Coren is all about the "smiting" and the "sins of the fathers". I am not sure what religion that is, but it sure doesn't have anything to do with Jesus Christ.

    Hypocrisy of the "Repatriate Omar Khadr to Canada" Movement

    As soon as the Gitmo interrogation tape of Omar Khadr hit the Internet, the blogosphere was flooded with demands to repatriate him to Canada. This wave is reminiscent of a Soviet campaign to free Luis Corvalán from the "fascist regime" of Augusto Pinochet thirty five years ago. The scenario is strikingly similar. A "victim" held by "fascist regimes" this time run by Bush and Harper, and a public outcry for justice. Except for the fact that Luis Corvalán didn't kill anyone and didn't fight for a terrorist group that wants to impose Sharia.

    The "repatriate Khadr" crowd describes him as "a child", "a kid", "a boy", and even "a torture victim", with no facts to substantiate the torture claims notwithstanding. They complain about Khadr being mistreated, again, without anything to back up their claims. Some of them are outraged about "child abuse." And they all scream for justice.

    They want justice? OK, let's talk about JUSTICE. What about justice for Sgt. First Class Christopher J. Speer, who was (according to an eyewitness) murdered by this "child"? What about justice for Tabitha Speer, who is a widow because of this "kid"? What about justice for Taryn and Tanner Speer, who are left without a father by this "a boy"? And what about all those Afghani civilians and NATO troops who are a little bit safer because this "torture victim" is behind bars? How many of these "repatriate Khadr" hypocrites concern themselves with justice for real victims? In literally hundreds of posts, we couldn't find a single one.

    One would ask, what is the reason for this idiocy? The answer is simple. Ignorance. Complete and utter ignorance. Let's forget for a second that Omar Khadr killed Christopher Speer. Let's forget that Khadr's father was an al Qaeda financier. Let's forget that Khadr's family is known for it being al Qaeda sympathizers. Let's just remember what this "child" was fighting for in Afghanistan.

    This is what Taliban-imposed Sharia looks like in real life:

    Why don't all of you, bleeding heart demagogues go to Afghanistan and spend a day in a Taliban-controlled territory? And let's talk about Khadr when you get back. If you get back.

  2. a) No one on the "repatriate Omar Khadr" side is calling for the imposition of Sharia.

    b)What is the name of eyewitness of whom you speak? So far, the only evidence that has surfaced sounds more like an urban legend "My friends, cousin's, uncle swears this is true." In fact, the defense is going to produce eyewitness testimony that U.S. soldiers were still chucking grenades in the area when the medic was killed. Ask the Tillman family how quick the U.S. army is to admit to friendly fire deaths.

    c) the Khadr family isn't on trial here. If this is a revenge fantasy against the family, using Omar as the surrogate for all of their sins, then how is that justice?

    "No one on the "repatriate Omar Khadr" side is calling for the imposition of Sharia."

    Did we say that? The point is that their idiocy will bring Sharia one step closer.

    "What is the name of eyewitness of whom you speak?"

    Sgt. Layne Morris, who was in that firefight.

    "the Khadr family isn't on trial here."

    No, and neither the policy of the US government, but you, people, seem to bitch a lot about it.

  4. Sgt. Layne Morris, who was in that firefight.

    I suppose you know that Mr. Morris left the scene before the medic died, right? Mr. Morris was wounded and flown to the hospital during the battle. His story is based on what others have told him.

  5. Coren seems to have missed the whole Matthew 25 bit too...

    BTW Greg, just a little background on "Muslims Against Sharia" before you waste valuable time and effort.

    Just thought you'd appreciate the information.

  6. Thanks Mike. I thought I had blown their mind because I knew their "eyewitness" was just a poor, wounded guy, with a second-hand story.
