|Lizzie at Speakers Corner |
Lizzie Schofield of Pfander Ministries is shouting and getting all obnoxious at a Muslim teacher, Adnan Rashid, whilst taking Islamic texts out of context to argue Islam allows acts such as the Manchester terrorism attack. It's shameful to see her misusing the suffering and deaths of the victims at Ariane Grande's concert. It is equally disrespectful and shameful for her to be shouting all this at Adnan Rashid, whose son has been the target of death threats from ISIS!
Adnan Rashid elucidates Islamic texts, showing Islam does not allow the killing of innocent kids at a concert. In this video, I've also included a clip of Paul Williams asking the member of the Islamophobic "Christian" group whether they condemn 1 Samuel 15:3.
3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” [Bible]
Anybody can take that Biblical text, which Trinitarian Christians believe is an order from Jesus, and decontexualise it to argue Christianity allows the killing of women and children. This is exactly the approach Lizzie and other Islamophobes take with regards to Islamic texts. It's not fair and serious minded Christians should ask this group of Christians to stop doing - it's intellectually dishonest and putting Christians in bad light.
For any sincere people who have questions as to Islam's stance on terrorism please watch this short condemnation of terrorism by Paul Williams and Mansur using Islamic texts to prove such actions are unislamic.
I hope Lizzie Schofield, Sharon Hoy, Sarah Foster, Hatun Tash and Beth Grove will reflect on why Jay Smith's Pfander Ministries and Pfander Films has accrued such caustic and extremist anti-Muslim followers over the years. I know Jay's group has been barred from speaking at certain venues and universities in the past due to being seen as Islamophobic.
