(NL Times) Christian party SGP wants to ban mosques in the Netherlands from making their daily calls to prayer with the words “Allahu Akbar,” party leader Kees van der Staaij said to broadcaster NOS. This ban is one of the points in the SGP’s election campaign, which will be released in two weeks.

“We’re not in the Middle East here. We don’t have to find it normal that at so many times, with that volume, ‘Allah is great’ blares through the street,” the SGP leader said. “We have recently seen more and more irritation arise about these prayer calls.”

According to him, this measure would need no constitutional changes – the number of prayer calls can be limited through the public demonstrations law.

    The Muslim population is a blessing in the secular nations. Hopefully they will make women and girls to dress up more properly and behave decently. No monopoly by West’s Sodomism. Children need to know there are values other than godless Western sucularism. Mankind need Jesus for salvation and need Christian education to cherish every life and obtain decent morality.

    • Jolanda Tiellemans

      Seriously? I mean seriously? You want every woman and girl in the west walking around in a burka? I thought to you Christians Islam isn’t a religion?

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        ? Islam is a religion. Read comments more carefully. Not burka. It’s “dress up more properly.” Like Queen Elizabeth II’s skirt length, and no public nudism.

        • Jolanda Tiellemans

          Well to Muslims dressing up properly is wearing long sleeves shirts, skirts to the ankle and a headwear.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            That’s up to them. Both Muslims and secularists are extremem on clothes. Burka is bad to wearer’s health and to public security, but Western nudism is destructive public disturbance and the practice endangers women. A common sense is necessary. If secular women are dressed in Queen Elizabeth II’s decency, everyone will respect each other and stay safe.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Whatever floats your boat. You can always move there. Oh and you think there are only Muslim women here? Uhm, nope!

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            The Muslim women can help the Westernized women to become more modest and to stop walking around in underwear in public places. The gentle Amish is too less influential on that although they are truly beautiful. And the Muslims can hear the Gospel and learn the Judeo-Christian values in free nations, although the secularism degrades the things of the former Christendom. I hope they can get the correct message in spite of all obstacles. That’s win-win. People need each other, Jolanda.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Seriously, you are reaĺly living in your Christian bubble aren’t you? You really think that a western woman is going to take fashion tips from a Muslim woman? And you really think that Muslims living here going to switch to your religion? Don’t be so naive.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Many people are finding Christ and getting saved from the Muslim background this century. Women and girls who are modestly dressed are truly beautiful. They have even different facial expressions. And the men who protect women and children. Men should risk life to protect maidens and not for prostitutes because prostitutes betray. It’s an eternal principle. Purity is regarding character of loyalty, not just marriage intimacy issues. Read the Gospel of John and the Book of Revelation to understand life, Jolanda.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            I don’t need a book to understand life.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Please read the Holy Bible. You need it for salvation: “…from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” ( II Timothy ch.3)

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            I don’t believe in talking snakes, virgin birth, that man was made from dirt and woman from a rib. How naive I’ve been as a child to believe those fairy tales.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            The Holy Bible is the truth. If it was a fairy tale, unbelieving Westerns would not have hated Christianity their only 1,700-year-long conscience so badly. The secular Westerners hate the Holy Bible because it is God’s truth and condemns today’s Sodomic Western culture. Miracles and wonders on Earth happen because God ordained those just as His physical laws in His creation world. Regarding a talking snake( it’s not plural), it is real. The serpent enticed the West to act smart against the Word of God and the West is being self-destructive right now; Satan’s method has not changed. Please know that you guys have nothing and are nothing apart the One who came sinlessly by virgin birth and the man made from dirt and the woman made from his rib. Jesus created the world.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Whatever floats your boat.

            Please know that you guys have nothing and are nothing

            I have a lot, and I’m my own person.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Man is nothing apart from God. Read the Holy Bible. I said: please know that you guys have nothing and are nothing apart the One who
            came sinlessly by virgin birth and the man made from dirt and the woman
            made from his rib. Jesus created the world. Stop bullying and hating the Christians, Jolanda. It’s horrible for the entire world to be bullied by perv rich powerful West. You guys think you can enslave colored people again with falsehood. A a totally filthy depravity this time. Give up your notion of slavery.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            So, not believing in something and pointing it out, is bullying? If you want to believe this, fine by me. But it is the fact that Christians like you think not everyone should have the same rights as everyone else, that pisses me off. And to me saying that Atheists are evil, they kill, they are perverts, that in my eyes is bullying. I never said I hated Christians, I just don’t like fundemantalist Christians like you, who tries to push your religion onto public schools, onto LGBT people who just want to buy a cake or want to get married. Are you denied housing because of your religion? Are you denied a job because of your religion? Are you denied marriage because of your religion? Are you denied to practice your religion? Are you denied to go to a church? No, you still have all those rights, like every religious person in the West. So please stop playing the victim card. If all those rights are denied to you then you have the right to play the victim.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Your kinds bring Christians to court to destroy the religious people, prohibiting freedom of speeches against sexual immorality. Don’t use p-word. Falsehood should never have the same rights with the truth. Atheists are evil; that’s a fact, but Christians accommodate them kindly in the Christendom. We share our religion because Christianity alone provides human rights and freedom and equality among mankind. Treating the transgender other than the birth gender or baking for gay wedding violates God’s truth and human conscience.

            Christians are moral but homosexuals are not. Housing should be limited to case-by-case because exposing to homosexuality harms children. Homosexuality is not and cannot be marriage. Religion of Christianity is good and promotes only good, but immorality is not good and is not a religion. Your falsehood lies in putting the good religion and despicable immorality together. Don’t do that. According to your reasoning, any evil would claim equal status with the supreme status. Truth should rule the society, not immoral people’s inclinations. Christians ARE victims in secular West.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Yep, as I said fundemantalist christians like you want to take the rights away from those who don’t fit into your little christian bubble. Goodbye

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            No, you Western Sodomites are trying to enslave mankind with abnormal sexual immorality instead of racism this century. No slavery. Never again. Racists are better than sexual pervs.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Right! Have fun on your little Christian bubble.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Children have rights to innocence and people have rights to declare the truth and live out Christian morality which alone is the civilized sanity. Meeting all of the demands of Western pervs is a disaster on Planet Earth. Wake up. I think the West’s porn culture really gotten the Earthlings into destructive abnormality. God destroys Sodom and Gommorah and wipes out the Canaanites. Apart from God’s impending wrath, it is too disgusting anyway. Imposing it on normal people is unacceptable. Don’t do this to mankind. You need to repent of your sins to be saved.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You scorn Christians, but the Biblical Christians are the only safe people on earth for everyone. All others hurt children and Christians and each other. Wake up.

          • Bob Johnson

            “Atheists are evil; that’s a fact”
            So is the Dalai Lama evil? Was Confucius evil?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            They were not atheists. Read Psalms 14. They tried and dreamed about the truth and the good, but they sought it in themselves and that’s why they stayed unredeemed. The Westerners support Dalai Lama to frangment China. Tibetan Buddhism is barbaric and has no freedom. Secularists do not care about mankind’s well-being; they think others should stay illiterate and powerless for-ever. Only the Christian missionaries truly care and bring God’s vital truth and literacy and medicine and freedom to mankind.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            You really expect a sane aswer frome someone who claims that, and I quote, “Racists are better than sexual pervs”?

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            because exposing to homosexuality harms children.

            Oh yes, I will never be the same, it’s very traumatic.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Children have rights to innocence and people have rights to declare the
            truth and live out Christian morality which alone is the civilized
            sanity. Meeting all of the demands of Western pervs is a disaster on
            Planet Earth. Wake up. I think the West’s porn culture really gotten the
            Earthlings into the final destructive abnormality. God destroys Sodom
            and Gommorah and wipes out the Canaanites. Apart from God’s impending
            wrath, it is too disgusting anyway. Imposing it on normal people is
            unacceptable. Don’t do this to mankind. You need to repent of your sins
            to be saved. See the sins as God sees them. Don’t mix the good and evil.
            Pagans do that, but they still have a sense of shame. Secular
            Westerners have no sense of shame. The West has no hope apart from
            Christianity.

            “Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is
            living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing
            even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and
            is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

            Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” ( Hebrews ch.4)

      Islam is a package deal. You must accept it all, not just the bits about women dressing modestly.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Western men force normal people to treat homosexuality as marriage and send pervs into women’s restrooms for women and children to be attacked. Secular West is as ill as any other. The civility and freedom is a package with the Judeo-Christian values alone.

    • nineleven

      GKK–Islam is a curse to any nation! Just another kind of false religion that believes it is supreme and has the right to enslave kill or torture non-believers–what a wonderful blessing. Where did you get this idea that Islam is a blessing? Islam pretends that its a blessing when muslims are in a small majority–they have to be on their best behaviour. it takes men and women to hell! It denies Jesus Christ is God’s son, it denies he is Lord, it denies that Jesus died on the cross for the sin of mankind. It condones lying and distortions of truth in order to gain advantage over unbelievers. It only constrains people to “good” decent behaviour out of fear, not out of love for any god.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        I think the Muslims gained strength this century because the secular West has become too chaotic blasphemous and immoral and abusive to its own children by denouncing any form of purity or innocence which is vital to all children. Today’s West seems to prohibit morality altogether, and the majority is being enslaved by the few powerful rich. Any condition is better than the Western Sodom’s reign on earth. You should stop whining and man up and protect women and children instead of sending pervs to women’s restrooms. Your forefathers may have been average racists, but they were not baby-killers or sexual perv playboys or addicted freeloaders like today’s generation. Wake up. You need to repent of your sin and trust in Jesus to get saved. God nukes Sodom in time. ( John ch.3, II Peter ch.3)

          Please read my post better. I am a christian believer.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I’m a Christian, too. Please read my comment again. I said that the Muslim population is a blessing in secular West. I didn’t say Islam. Children in Westernized secular nations are growing up in a depraved nudist culture and something has to make the nudism slow down so that children can have a room to breathe. Westernized women should know that they don’t have to expose their skin excessively to prove that they are women.
