So, I guess the Crusades are alive and well in Dearborn

Well, the Crusades seem to alive and well in Dearborn, MI.  We see here a general assault on a Muslim festival by a group of Christian protesters.  I say “assault,” but I mean purely metaphorically.  I’m not saying the Christians physically assaulted the festival goers, but they showed up to make their views of Muslims known.

The conservative preoccupation with presenting Sharia law as a threat to the United States’ culture as well as its national security has long been an unwarranted source of liberal derision. They may want to rethink their attitude after this story.

Recently, the city of Dearborn, Michigan, hosted the 2012 Arab International Festival. Naturally enough, the event drew demonstrators, specifically a group of Christian protesters who wanted to voice their discontent with what they saw as the predominately Muslim character of the event. Whatever you may think of this motive, the results of their behavior were unquestionably shocking. – The Blaze

The Muslims began throwing items such as bottles and other trash and maybe even rocks at the Christian protesters.  While I don’t agree with the Muslims throwing rocks and assaulting the Christians, let’s be completely honest here.  The Christians were protesting the fact that a Islamic festival had a predominately Islamic feel to it.  Seriously?  Doesn’t a Christian festival have an overtly Christian feel to it?  Yes, yes it does! 

Now, I’m not saying the Muslims handled themselves properly at all.  However, the Christians shouldn’t have gone there in the first place.  I can see if they were protesting Sharia law or something, but it appears they were just protesting a Muslim festival.

  1. This is too sad. There are a lot of interpretations on how a “Christian Soldier” is supposed to behave when confronted with opposing religious ideologies, but actually protesting a peaceful celebration of another religion seems out of the box to me. Does the act bring honor and glory to the name and works of Jesus the Christ? I don’t think so.
