(RNS) Muslim stand-up comedy is nothing new. But what makes “The Muslims Are Coming” different is that it portrays what happens when a troupe of comedians performs before red state Americans.

    Read Erwin Lutzer’s new book, “The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent” (Harvest House) and tell me I don’t have anything to be concerned about.

    Ron, I am not a Muslim or a Christian. It seems to me though the logical place to learn about Islam is from an imam and by reading the Quran, just as the logical place to understand Christianity would be a Bible and a pastor. You may disagree with the imam, but you should at least learn first-hand what his religion teaches. You would probably consider an orthodox rabbi’s explanation of Christ incomplete, no matter how scholarly; likewise with a Christian scholar on Islam. I haven’t read Erwin Lutzer’s new book but if I had concerns, I’d raise specific questions with the nearest imam and consider a different perspective.

    “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” Omar Ahmad (http://anti-cair-net.org/) This says it all, and it is the pervasive sentiment. As Jesus says, “by your fruits you shall know them.” We surely should them by now, but PC operates to the zenith. Our leaders are either naïve or willfully blind, and that includes clergy.
