Why is it that progressive liberals rarely if at all criticize radical Islam? The answer consists of two parts.
2 Timothy 3:1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. (2) People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, (3) without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, (4) treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God– (5) having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
First of all, we know that during these last days our mainstream culture will be “lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” The powerful influence of the progressive liberal media combined with left-leaning institutions of higher learning which prepare our future leaders have moved our culture in the direction which opposes traditional and godly values.
Moreover, since our culture has been given over by God to a depraved mind, homosexuality has been accepted as a “personal choice” and no longer as a sin or aberration.
Romans 1:27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (28) Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
Finally, the mainstream culture actually hates God.
Romans 1:29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, (30) slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; (31) they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
Of course, in America today Christianity stands for God for godly values. Therefore progressive liberals hate us and the values we stand for. We are their enemy. Therefore they will support any shift in our culture, however abominable, which opposes Christian values. As just one example, we witness the ready acceptance of “Caitlyn” Jenner by the mainstream culture to the point where he/she is given the ESPY Award for courage.
Christianity, therefore, is the enemy of the culture spawned by the progressive mainstream media.
And now for the second part of the answer as to why the mainstream media rarely condemns Islam or criticizes its spokesmen in America. Who hates Christianity just as much as the media? Islam of course.
True Islam at its core is conservative, legalistic, and intolerant in the extreme. As just one example, they have their women cover their heads and they behead apostates. This world religion is a result of the last days revival of the powerful spirit of murder and hypocrisy behind the Pharisees 2,000 years ago who were responsible for killing the Savior of the world, the Son of the Most High God. Now whatever progressive liberals may think of Christianity, Islam is a hundred times worse.
Nevertheless, Christianity is seen as the enemy of Islam. And so liberals see Islam as an ally, a friend. Of course it is a most deadly mistake. But this is an indication to us of how much they hate God.
Scripture is being fulfilled.
(A third reason on which we will not elaborate: liberals don’t want their heads chopped off by their friends.)
