Republicans: Do NOT nominate Tim ‘Sharia’ Pawlenty

| March 8, 2011

The 2012 Presidential speculation has officially begun. Yesterday in Iowa at the Faith and Freedom Coalition event, some of the top Republican potential Presidential candidates spoke. Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum and Tim Pawlenty all gave America a sneak peak. Obviously there exist not one infallible candidate but pundits have already found something wrong with each potential nominee. Newt might have to answer for his infidelity, no one really knows who Herman Cain is, Santorum doesn’t have the “it” factor and Pawlenty? I haven’t actually heard too many negatives about Pawlenty. There are actually some great things about him; he is for protecting traditional marriage, he is pro-life and fiscally conservative. However, there is one major red flag that is blowing pretty hard in the wind but no one can hear it because it has rarely been discussed. It revolves around the threat that is taking America down little by little. It is the reason why Republicans must not elect former Governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty as our nominee for 2012. Although Pawlenty hasn’t officially announced his bid for the Oval Office yet, this problem serves as a clear example as to why we must elect a candidate with discernment. Currently, all signs are pointing straight ahead for the former Governor to run. It’s time Americans see the caution sign before taking a possible blind ride down a wrong way street.

Bibi Aisha: Tried to flee her abusive husband in Afghanistan. As a punishment he cut off her ears and nose as a punishment and left her to die.

Unless you have been hanging with Eric Holder or Janet Napolitano, most Americans understand the threat of radical Islam. We understand that on 9-11 virgin loving Muslims ran planes into towers murdering thousands of Americans in the name of Allah. We understand that two American airmen lost their lives last week in Germany when a radical Muslim brutally shot them (even though the politically correct Commander-in-Chief has yet to admit it was indeed a terrorist attack as usual).  The violent aspect of radical Islam is pretty clear to most of us. Unfortunately, too many Americans still fail to see the non-violent means by which radicals will infiltrate the United States in order to usher in Islamic rule. What’s worse is when elected officials who take the oath to protect and defend America from such threats as Sharia, don’t even see the yellow lights blinking.

In August of 2008, under then Governor Tim Pawlenty, the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency along with the African Development Center created a special program so Muslims wouldn’t have to violate Sharia Law in purchasing a home. Sharia Law disallows Muslims from paying interest. So what the MHFA did was create a special program for the Muslims in order to accommodate their religious law. Gee, I could really see states doing this for Christians or Jews! In a nutshell, the state would buy the home at a higher price. They would then turn around and sell it to the Sharia compliant Muslim buyer with the monthly payments being agreed to at the current mortgage rates. There is no additional interest because the home was bought at a higher price thus it factors in what payments would have been with a traditional mortgage. The Muslims said they just couldn’t go against their Muslim beliefs. Then don’t buy in America. So as Christians, can we now say that we don’t want to pay our taxes because we don’t want our tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood which funds killing babies? That’s against my beliefs! I highly doubt the government would accommodate us in that regard!

Eighteen months after the implementation of the program and a few happy Muslim home buyers later, it shut down. No, not because the Sharia light bulb went off in the heads of those in the MHFA but because American citizens were outraged! Once again, Americans stepped up to the plate when government failed the people. ACT! For America (a Jihad watchdog group) went to the ends of the earth to bring this to the attention of radio shows and blogs. It worked. The problem is what if Americans didn’t show their outrage? What if it was never known that Minnesota was creating an entirely new program to accommodate Muslims? It would still be going on today. I know that many will say that Pawlenty had nothing to do with it. The argument has already been made that it was done by the housing agency. Ok, so what does that tell you about Pawlenty’s ability to know what is going on in his own state and under his own housing agency? If he can’t stop Sharia compliancy in his own state and is oblivious to their sneaky ways, how is he going to protect the United States? Don’t take the risk America. When it comes to Islamic law having any part in America, its one strike and you’re out with me!

I can live with a candidate that may have made some bad marital choices, I am fine with someone who maybe hasn’t been on center stage, I can deal with a former Senator who may not have the ‘’it’’ factor. What I can’t accept is a former Governor whose state bent over backwards for Muslims as they usher in Sharia Law and he had no clue as to what was going on. Regardless of the fact the program was done away with after eighteen months, that is eighteen months way too long! Sharia Law isn’t something you just say ‘’oops’’ about overlooking.

The danger of Sharia Law billowing over America’s Constitution has become more and more evident. Not all radical Muslims are going to initiate Umma (one world under Islam) by violence. They are going to do it by getting into government, the banking system (uh hum! Pawlenty) schools and businesses. It will creep in little by little just as it has in Europe. The fact is Sharia isn’t just a law regarding interest payments or banking regulations. It is a brutal, barbaric and violent law. How on earth could any American be passive about this tyrannical law being implemented in America? I’m just wondering, where are all the Liberals admonishing the uprising of Sharia Law compliancy in America? Aren’t they supposed to be the cheerleaders of the non-existent ‘’separation of church and state” clause? Where are all the secular Liberals denouncing Islamic law from partaking in American government? Where is the ACLU on this one? I suppose since it’s a crescent moon and not a cross that meshing religion and government is now okay right?

I have always stressed the importance that America must have a leader with discernment. It’s either there or it’s not. We must have a leader that recognizes the threat of radical Islam; violent and non-violent. We must have a leader who sees special laws being enacted for Muslims as a major danger for America. The worst thing Americans can do is repeat what happened in 2008 by electing another President who bows to Islam under the tolerance veil at the expense of American freedom.

    muslim faith is the anti-christs bible… the christian and jewish faith is Gods …. gee who do you think will win? looks like its 2 against 1 …. so you see no point in getting angery … lets just spread the good news instead… your loved and provided for by Jesus and his love for you :) nothing else matters

  2. Dave Powers says:

    Strangely, this story makes me wonder about these very low-interest loans that no one can qualify for but I have no idea what I am talking about here so I just threw it into the ring to see if maybe someone else did.

  3. Ted says:

    well i think those low-interest loan are false sence of security and making the secular wanting to stick with the secular world remember satan hates to be ignored … lol i think he’s a cartoon character … child like throwing a giant tantrum because he cant have it his way so he tries to bring us all down with him… luckly if you believe in Jesus he cant touch you … so to answer your question its just another out of reach government money scheem thats just to calm the masses from getting angrey and turning to christ for the real truth answer which is who cares what the government does believe in Jesus and he will govern your life … :)

  4. Obama Leads says:

    The Republican party should not nominate ANYONE to oppose Barack Hussein Obama because he will be elected by God anyway. He should run unopposed as submission to God’s will.

    Tim “Sharia” Pawlenty, Mitt “The Mormonite” Romney or Sarah “Hot Mama” Palin or anyone else cannot win against God’s chosen leader. Support Obama. He will have us in heaven sooner than we ever expected.

    • Kyle says:

      He who makes himself an ally of one who works against the laws of God makes himself an enemy of God – watch it, OLlie.

        • Kyle says:

          … Obama is working towards abortion, a one world government, taking Christianity out of schools and government while facilitating an easier transition of Islam into schools and governmeent, instituting homosexual marriage, the list goes on… working against the laws of God. Obama is, therefore, by our agreement (after all, you just agreed with my previous comment) an enemy of God, and if you ally yourself with him by saying that we should not oppose Obama you make yourself an enemy of God as well. It really is that simple. I don’t mean to be so short and to the point, but I’ve really grown tired of beating around this bush with your comments about support Obama this so we can all go to Heaven. Do you really think you will go to Heaven supporting the enemy? You may get more from Obama than you think if you keep this up. Please, stop this driveling, repent, and start working towards the works of God instead of playing that “Rah, rah, Obama, yeah!” garbage. If you hate life so much that you just want out of it, maybe you need to spend time more with God and realize that the reason why the end hasn’t come yet is because there’s more people that he wants us to reach first! You need to stop being selfish and realize that what God wants is for us to get out there and help others to see Christ, not trying to help Satan establish power so that we can leave this Earth!

          • Obama Leads says:

            Ha, ha. Short and too the point!!! That was a ramble if I ever saw one!

            It’s a shame when a Christian soul is lost in its own hatred. You may be afraid to go to heaven. But I am not!!! Lead us Obama. You are doing God’s will of destroying the U.S. and Israel and sending us to heaven sooner than we ever expected.

          • Kyle says:

            Look, there was no hate in my comments, only concern for you. I’m not afraid to go to heaven, if God called me today I would. I would experience the absolute worst of torture before I would even think of renouncing Christ; I’m not afraid of death. YOU, however, are standing against the will of God. Prophecy WILL be fulfilled, but that doesn’t mean that it’s all God’s Will. God does not will that any should perish. Jesus could have judged the world right after His crucifixion, but He did not desire that the wheat be burnt up with with weeds. There has been harvesting to do, and there is still harvesting to do. What you are saying that we do is like a pregnant woman purposely inducing her labor before it is time. God is perfectly capable of the fulfillment of Prophecy; He does not need our help. My concern is for you and those like you, for I believe it is very possible that because of your supporting of those who work against the Will of God, that when you get to the Judgment Seat, the Lord may tell you that He never knew you, and that you, too, will end up in everlasting fire. I speak this not out of hate, but the opposite. I am concerned for the state of your salvation, but you have made yourself clear that you do not wish to listen. Your salvation is between you and God, and I’ve done everything I can to let you know what you need to correct. If you do not do so, it is on your own head. If you feel that what you are doing is right, then go ahead, you only have God to answer for it, as do I, and I keep that in mind very well. I was only concerned, but I shall concern myself with what you are doing no longer. Any time I see your name as the author of a comment, I’m not even going to check it out, so we won’t be having this problem again. I refuse to fight with you, or anyone else. I seek to set people straight if I believe they are walking a crooked path, but if they don’t care about listening to me, it is no longer my problem, and though I hate to have to let someone keep walking a crooked path knowing they may not make it to the end of the straight and narrow, I do not wish to fight with anyone, and out of frustration for where I see you headed, I have debated this far too much, but I truly do not wish to fight, and so I must cut off my ties with you here and now. I really do hope you will be considered right with God.

          • Obama Leads says:

            I have done everything I can to let you know that Obama is carrying out God’s will. You just will not listen. Yes, God and Jesus are Republicans. But God simply cannot have the world come to an end with a Republican at the helm because they seek to avoid End Times at all costs just like yourself. They simply are not ready to go to heaven!!

            Prophecy cannot be avoided. God’s Will will be done whether people want it done or not.

            Ready or not. Here it comes….

  5. Kyle says:

    Oh…. Satan can touch you even if you believe in Jesus, all right, otherwise you’d never have Christians getting sick, going homeless, etc. etc. Sin creates openings for Satan to attack. If we are living in the perfect Will of God, sure, we’ll be protected, but if we’re not, that’s when bad things happen. Many people do not realize that Job allowed the devil to attack him through his fear of what could happen (Job 3:25)… that’s why he was always offering sacrifices all the time because he feared his children would commit some sin at their parties that would cause judgment to come upon them, so he would offer sin offerings just in case. If we do not acknowledge this, we may blame God when bad things happen, but we must realize that the blame does not lie with God and accept responsibility for ourselves. As far as 2 against 1, sadly many people in the Church are anti-semetic and strive to be politically correct so as to not offend anyone and so they would rather side with Muslims than the Jews… we’re in for a bumpy ride, and, as happened in 2008, if we are not careful the democratic party will do everything they can to get the weakest candidate elected in the primaries as our runner for office.

    We must be as gentle as doves, yet as wise as serpents. Personally, I’m a fighter by nature, yet I’ve come to the stance that I will stand at the ready with a Bible instead of a sword, yet at the same time, many of us underestimate the workings in this scheme. Satan is a chessmaster of chessmasters, and can only be outwitted by God Himself, which is why we must learn not to try to act on our own accords, but rather to seek His direction in all things, for I believe this will be vital in the coming times. Too many people underestimate our enemy; he has been around a whole lot longer than we have. He’s had his lackeys observing us all our lives. He knows us probably better than we know ourselves; but God knows us even better – all of us – and He knows the end from the beginning. I emphasize again, this is why we must seek God’s direction in all things. I must admit that I, sadly, need to follow my own advice more, but it is something I am working on and advise everyone else to do the same. I am not perfect, but I am striving towards that goal.

    I think its interesting though to note regarding the mention of the crescent moon in the article… made me think about something… how consistant Satan usually seems to be. Crescent MOON… five pointed star… a moon and a pentagram… the wiccans, to my understanding, primarily worshipped a moon-goddess and the pentagram is known to be consistantly used in witchcraft – I don’t know… I thought the consistancy was interesting. From moon and pentagram to moon and pentagram, the devil’s religions remain constant. I think by observing the tactics he has used throughout history and the scriptures we can then understand quite a bit more about how our enemy operates. Even though he is extremely wise in worldly wisdom and the ways of the world and very, very smart, I don’t think he’s really changed all that much, just the same tactics used in different applications. Might be something we as God’s children can use to advance our own understanding of our enemy… after all, that’s what military intelligence is… it is not, in itself, the analyzing of the intel, but the substance of the intel itself – knowledge of one’s enemy.

    I did a quick google search and I couldn’t find anything on this except one MPR article. Nothing on Act! mentions this, and no news articles even mention it being shut down. Where did you find this? Can you share a link or two?

    Kind of an aside, but isn’t it a little unreasonable to expect a governor (who criticized the Ground Zero Mosque and was reprimanded by everyone’s favorite Islamo-Fascist group, CAIR) to know what every state agency is up to at every moment? I can’t even keep track of my kids in my house half the time – sometimes they step out of line and have to be disciplined, but only after the fact – seems like that’s what happened here.

    finally i see christians are attacking the true antichrist religion and all there false prophets not other christians who have the wrong interpentation of the bible

  8. The Islamic mortgage program was ended by the efforts of the Minnesota Murabalitionists, the group I organized and led. We kept in close communication with ACT! for America, including Joy Brighton, Lisa Piraneo and Guy Rodgers and the local St. Paul chapter was instrumental in our letter writing campaign (which appears to have been the trigger for Mr. Pawlenty shutting down the program).

    Our concerns were carefully laid out in The Bostrom Chronicles, a series of 12 letters sent to Gloria Bostrom, MHFA Board member.

    Please read the 12 letters in their entirety, and you will see that there is nothing racist, bigoted, or ignorant in them.

    The letter writing campaign in March 2010 is outlined here:

    The program was shut down on April 15, 2010.

    I was pleased to be a citizen activist, to have worked with so many great people, and to have had success ending the Islamic mortgage program.

    Thanks for the info. Now, you better let everyone know about Chris Christy and his involvement with Islam which is far worse than this! Everyone thinks he’s such a great guy too. Do NOT naminate Chris Christy either!
