Slovakia Passes Law Banning Islam From Being Officially Recognized as a Religion

BRATISLAVA — Lawmakers in Slovakia have passed a law banning Islam from being officially recognized as a religion in the country.

“Since Slovakia is a Christian country, we cannot tolerate an influx of 300,000-400,000 Muslim immigrants who would like to start building mosques all over our land and trying to change the nature, culture and values ​​of the state,” Prime Minister Robert Fico had said in January 2015.

Lawmakers passed a bill on Nov. 30 sponsored by the Slovak National Party (SNS) that requires religions to have at least 50,000 adherents in the nation to receive subsidies and to operate its own schools, according to Reuters. There are an estimated 2,000-5,000 Muslims living in Slovakia, less than one percent of the 5.4 million population.

Over 60 percent of the nation identifies as Roman Catholic and only nine percent is evangelical Christian.

“Islamization starts with a kebab and it’s already under way in Bratislava,” said Andrej Danko with the SNS, who had also reportedly wanted to ban the wearing of burkas. “Let’s realize what we can face in five to 10 years. We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in the future.”

The law is also stated to keep out mock religions, such as the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which has followers scattered worldwide. It passed with a two-thirds majority.

Slovakia had issued a stipulation last year in regard to the global refugee crisis in stating that it would not receive Muslims, and therefore only welcomed 200 refugees.

“I think it is the duty of politicians to talk about these things very clearly and openly,” Fico said in May. “I do not wish there were tens of thousands of Muslims. They are changing the character of the countries [they come to].”

Evangelicals in America have been divided on the issue.

“Our faith inspires us to respond with compassion and hospitality to those fleeing violence and persecution,” the Evangelical Immigration Table wrote in a letter to U.S. Congress this year. “Jesus Himself was a refugee, and He teaches us to do unto others as we would have them do to us. Compassion is not in conflict with national security.”

“The Bible does not teach open and undiscerning welcome, but only wise welcome,” Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration also wrote to lawmakers. “We are to embrace the lawful and well-meaning foreigner, who, like a convert, comes as blessing (e.g. book of Ruth). Elsewhere we find the building of walls to protect from harmful foreigners (e.g. Nehemiah).”

          We all live on Planet Earth. Mankind = Earthlings. I don’t think God will allow us to meet aliens even if He had created some because Adamic race is sinners. There are many indications in the Holy Bible that we Earthlings won’t move out of the Planet Earth.

    I’m glad I live in a nation where we at least supposedly have freedom.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Slovakia has so much more sense after suffering the brutal atheism’s decades-long atrocities. And the nation must have a lot of sensible biological parents in it. Western Europe and America look stupid in comparison. The Muslims must change their doctrines on how to treat Non-Muslims including converts in the Muslim-majority case. That’s the only way for peaceful co-existence among mankind. Otherwise, Non-Muslims have to arm all the time for the possible attacks like the Wild West era, and that is very energy-consuming, although such tension may slow down the West’s chaotic decadence. May Eastern Europe and Russia get always spared from West’s insane Sodomism until Jesus comes back.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    Diversity is white genocide.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Today’s too many white people disrespect God and their own white Christian forefathers. Why do you guys attack your own white Christian pioneers who created the finest nations everywhere on earth? No other race or tribe or clan does such stupid evil thing. They may have been racist, but not baby-killing pervs therefore far better than today’s generation in any nation. Stop bashing your own Christian white ancestors. Bash illiteracy, barbarism, and demon-worships as well when you bash colonialism. And proclaim who invented everything except for gun powder and Arabian numbers. Everyone will respect your race. Problem solved.

      • Roy Hobs

        I’ll tell you why Grace…………..this is the age old conflict between Jacob and Esau. “Jacob have I loved, Esau I have hated” says the Lord. Read — Who is Esau-Edom by Charles Weisman. A free pdf exists online. Peace.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          Not true. Love for Jacob is based on the Lord’s sovereignty. Esau was never repentant anyway. Secular West must become humble and admit that God is in control.

          • Roy Hobs

            What is “not true” about what I said? Or what the book says?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Jacob and Easu have nothing to do with racial issues. I think today’s white people especially young ones should respect the Christian white people of yesteryears to solve the racial problem. If the white liberals stop blaspheming God and bashing the white Christians of yesteryears and halt promoting nudism and Sodomy, no one will disrespect white people.

          • Roy Hobs

            Grace, you asked the question — Why does your culture attack your own white Christian pioneers who created the finest nations everywhere on earth?

            One of the reasons is the Spirit of Anti-Christ. If you would read “Who is Esau-Edom” you will understand ‘who’. God hates Esau and God’s enemies are Edomites. God will destroy Esau — Jacob will be a fire and Joseph a flame; Esau will be stubble, and they will set him on fire and destroy him. There will be no survivors from Esau.” The LORD has spoken. Obadiah 1:18
            It is important to understand who “Esau” is today. Revelation 2:9

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            I’m sorry I still don’t see the connection. God decreed just judgment upon all ungodly nations of each era, not just upon Edom. I agree with you white people’s nations are being unfairly pressed. Unbelieving Western people must stop attacking the Christianity, the Church, and their Christian ancestors and stop promoting sexual confusion and sexual immorality under the false name of equality. Society gets unrest and loses peace within when well-fed spoiled children disrespect God and slander their good parents. I think the former Christendom that went bad is being punished by God.

          • Roy Hobs

            You will need to read the book (free pdf) to understand the connection. Revelation 2:9 is the first clue. Peace to you.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.” ( Hebrews chapter 12)

          Read “Scalp Dance” by Thomas Goodrich. Stop watching Tv and movies. Dances with wolves is not a documentary.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Secular Americans are educated on cartoon movies and do not know much about the real world other than their own safe civilized Protestant bubble.

    Islam isn’t really a religion. It’s a political ideology masked as a religion.

  • Harry Oh!

    Bravo! Hopefully Trump will have the balls to do the same here.

    • This style ten and six

      You don’t believe in freedom of religion then.

      • Harry Oh!

        Yes I do, but Islam is an ideology that conflicts with the religion of our founders. If you don’t understand that, move to the middle east. You’re in the wrong country.

        • This style ten and six

          I don’t live there but I had always thought that the Constitution guaranteed freedom of and from religion. Seems that I am wrong and you are a Christian theocracy.

          • Roy Hobs

            “Context” is everything.
            The founders used the word “posterity” when thinking about the FUTURE.

            Islam isn’t simply a religion, it is a totalitarian ideology with political elements that are incompatible with western constitutions.

          • Marcus Del Cactus

            Muslims didn’t fight for our independence in the American Revolutionary War or write our constitution, but now use our constitution to spread the evils of muhammad’s ‘religion’ of war & death. Out of maybe 50 muslim countries only about 10 have something like the first amendment, AND USE AT OWN RISK, might get raped/stabbed/beheaded/blown up. Oldest US Churches: San Miguel Chapel, New Mexico 1610. Another is First Church in Plymouth, MA founded 1620. First US mosque was built in North Dakota in 1929, 146 years AFTER the end of the American Revolutionary War. So basically the Christians who settled the land, fought other Christians (Brits) to separate themselves from their Monarchy, wrote the constitution and never seen a muslim or knew islam…but now muslims pull the constitution out of their pockets and shake it in front of our face to spread islam… WTF?

        • JustThink

          Oh, the irony. Christianity immigrated to this land that had already been settled by non Christians. Then, a group of people of mixed faiths and also of no faith drew up a constitution for a new nation and established freedom of religion. They recognized that people had different belief systems and agreed that the system could work as long as no particular belief system was favored over another. And then Christians misinterpreted yet another piece of history to benefit themselves.

          • Harry Oh!

            Sounds like you need to study history. Of the 204 men who signed the Constitution, every one of them belonged to a Christian denomination. There wasn’t a single atheist, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, etc. Then over the next 200 years America was populated predominately by Christian Europeans; not Chinese, Africans, Saudis, Indonesians, etc. Yes, Christianity is currently being stomped out of our society by the Marxist, radical left who control the media and pop culture, but can you give me one valid reason why this is happening?

          • JustThink

            You think I need to study history? And you’re the one who thinks 204 men signed the Constitution? Yeah, ok.
            I guess it doesn’t matter much, because this website seems to have censored my posts. Shame.

          • Harry Oh!

            My Bad, I should have said that of the 204 Founding Fathers….all were Christian. Here is what Founding Fathers did for your info;

            signed the Declaration of Independence
            – signed the Articles of Confederation
            – attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
            – signed the Constitution of the United States of America
            – served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
            – served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

          • JustThink

            I pointed out that you got your historical facts blatantly wrong, and now you’re still trying to teach me history? Um, no thanks. That doesn’t make the least bit of sense.

          • JustThink

            And to identify Thomas Paine as a Christian is laughable.

          • Harry Oh!

            He was a deist. Not a Muslim, Buddha, Hindu, atheist. etc. Anyone else? Is that all you got? To deny our Christian heritage one has to be patently dishonest or disillusion. Which one are you?

          • JustThink

            You called him a Christian. You called them all Christians. Lies. And you think I’m being dishonest?

            “Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity…”
            ― Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

            “…the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion” ― John Adams (Treaty of Tripoli).

            Is that all I’ve got? If I had a microphone, I’d drop it and walk off the stage right now while everyone laughed at you for your ignorance and hypocrisy.

          • Harry Oh!

            Such dramatics. You forgot to include the first part of Adams quote “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people” and how about this one ”Without religion this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company, I mean Hell.” or this one “But I must submit all my Hopes and Fears, to an overruling Providence, in which, unfashionable as the Faith may be, I firmly believe.” And I’m pretty sure he isn’t talking about Allah, or Buddha. He disliked religion, and many of us do, but that is separate from belief in God. Religion is created by men to abuse power. But truth reveals that we are created by God. And that is what the Founding Fathers believed as a whole.

          • JustThink

            I never said there were not religious founding fathers. I never said their religions didn’t influence them when drawing up the Constitution. I disputed that they were all Christian and that this country was founded as a Christian nation. As you appear to have just discovered while trying to rebut my argument, there is a difference between deism and Christianity. Believing that “God” created the universe and that there is an afterlife is about a million miles away from believing Jesus was born of a virgin and that he died for our sins and was resurrected three days later. When I said “a group of people of mixed faiths and also of no faith”, I probably should have distinguished that I meant people without religious faith. Because the fact that many of our founding fathers were deists and not Christians is not news to me. So quit intermixing the two, because deists aren’t going around thumping their bibles and damning billions of people to a fictitious hell. Christians are.

          • Harry Oh!

            May I suggest you actually read the Bible before going off half-cocked about what you think Christianity is all about. Religion has been used a weapon to oppress people, that’s why people fled Europe to begin with. But the core belief of these people in an almighty God never wavered. I’m not going to argue you about the tenants of Christianity despite your repeated attempts to draw me in. This discussion is about the reality of the vast majority of our Founding Fathers being influenced by their belief in a higher power (predominantly Christian). I never once suggested that America was Christian State, but it was mostly inhabited by European Christians for 200 years. Feel free to call that whatever makes you sleep better. But this discussion is done and you have been officially served. Good Day!

          • JustThink

            To Whom it May Concern:
            I don’t thinking reading any more of the Bible to see what Christianity is all about will be on my to-do-list. I’ve read enough of the absurdities within its pages (old and new testaments) and seen enough of the actions Christians have taken against non-Christians, and especially against blameless homosexuals, that they then justify with scripture. Yes, as Harry pointed out, religion is used as a weapon to oppress people, then and now.
            As it should be evident to anyone who has read this discussion, I am not some atheist who came in and tried to draw Harry into some anti-Christian debate as he is implying (or stating). I simply pointed out the irony in his initial post and then the fallacies in every subsequent thing he said as he tried to rewrite history. This should be obvious to anyone up until the point that Harry edits or deletes his posts.
            The Bible was written by man. Most Christians pick and choose what words of God they will follow (especially from the old testament). If the Bible is the perfect word of God, as it has been stated time and time again, then you can’t just throw out the old because the new makes more sense to you or better suits your life (or the modern age). If you think there are good messages to take away from the Bible (or Christianity in general), you can still take them even if you don’t believe the words are divine. Love thy neighbor? Sure, makes sense. Don’t murder? Got it. Stone your children to death for misbehaving? No, I think not.

          • Harry Oh!

            You’re obviously a big ol God hater. How can you expect tolerance for your lewd beliefs, when you have no respect for anyone else’s? Hypocrite. Typical of your kind.

          • JustThink

            I thought you were done.
            In any case, no, I don’t respect your beliefs. I respect your right to hold those beliefs and to practice them as long as they don’t cause harm to others or infringe on the liberties that should be afforded to all citizens equally. But Christian beliefs and actions often don’t meet those requirements. And I don’t hate any gods. I don’t believe in a single one.

      • Per Pedersen

        As Harry Oh! mentions. Islam is an ideology with 20% relgion and 80% other nice things like Sharia law.

        Islam has been at war for 1400 years with all and everybody (since the start actually). Islam is a conquer ideology. It can only expand and thrive on the expense of others.

        How many moslem receivers of nobel prizes can you count? And there are good reasons for that.

          • Per Pedersen

            Common mistake. I also know nice Muslims, but I’m talking about Islam as an ideology, and in that frame, it’s not the nice Muslims we should worry about, it’s the not-so-nice Muslims that we AND the nice Muslims should worry about.

            Look around you, and look at how the countries with Muslim majority end up. The majority suppressed in those countries are – – – Muslims.

            So we need to pray for them breaking the chains and finding home.

            That’s nice. But just because a few Muslims won Nobel prizes does not mean that most of them are not in support of sharia law and the beheading of infidels, atheists. In Saudi Arabia they will behead you for apostasy, sorcery, witchcraft and homosexuality. Which is the most backward and dumbest thing I ever heard! In 2016 we are still dealing with this nonsense?! At least Christianity has progressed since the dark ages. Religion is bullshit. End of story. You wanna practice it? Fine. But leave the rest of us the fuck alone. Don’t demand that a country who lets you in to tolerate and submit your beliefs. That’s not how it works. It’s the other way around. I’m calling a spade a spade and most Muslims need to back the fuck off. Let’s not forget the extra tax they put on Christians and Jews because they didn’t want to convert to Islam. Like give me a fucking break here!! They want us to bend over backwards for them, EXPECT HAND OUTS from the country they choose to immigrate to build their mosques and conform to them. But if a Christian or a Jew who wants to move to a Muslim country, their religion is not tolerated at all. I can guarantee that! So stop defending a stupid, backward religion that refuses to give the same religious rights to those that they are demanding from us. It’s like a child that wants every toy from every other child but refuses to share their toys. Pathetic, stupid and sad.

            So……Sandy…..is the phrase then racist to you as well?

          • Sandy Marley

            From the first looks, i’d say yes it is, because it says “white people”. I think dividing people into races is racist itself. In my opinion, there is only one race – humanity. However, I had to dig a little more to understand what purpose does it (the phrase) serve. And having a little bit more background, it makes sense. However, globalization is happening and white people are quite willingly mixing up with the rest of the world. Civilizations appear and disappear and unfortunately i believe that’s what is gonna happen with some of the nations in the near future.
            And so i’ve been reading all the comments.. And giving thumbs up for white people fighting for American constitution and rights is i think
            unethical, because first of all, native Americans weren’t white at all.
            So Europeans came, took the land, raped their women and killed their
            kids and now we are kind of complaining about Muslims doing this? I’m sure Indians wished the same for their people and their children, when they were concurred by Europeans. I think it’s right to defend your land and your family, because it is your family, but not because they are white and intruders are different. I do not defend Muslims either, their extremism has gone too far, but i’m sure that most of them would happily stay in their lands and take care of their family. However they’re being killed by soldiers, because of oil, power, etc. Are they being racist for defending their land and killing an American soldier or other soldier?

          • Roy Hobs

            “native Americans weren’t white at all. So Europeans came, took the land, raped their women and killed their kids…
            First all…..you’ve watched too much Tv.. Read Scalp Dance by Thomas Goodrich for a “Balanced” perspective. And btw…….there is good reason to believe White people lived on the North American Continent longer than the Red Indian. Watch — Ice Age Columbus. It is theorized the Red Indian wiped out all the caucasians who were living here prior to their arrival.
            Second — you say we are all one race. Where did you get this from? Are you a Christian? And….are you white? Thanks.

          • Sandy Marley

            First of all…..I don’t watch TV. But i’ll take your advise and watch — Ice Age Columbus.
            Second — what significance my answer about my religion and color will make to your future judgement? What is the difference in having conversation with people based on their skin color or religion? Isn’t that called prejudice?

          • Roy Hobs

            So Europeans came, took the land, raped their women and killed their kids…
            This is classic “White Guilt”. So I assume you are Caucasian. If not…..you are just parroting anti-white propaganda. If you are Caucasian, google the term ‘white guilt’ and spend some time researching how this came to be. I know because most of my adult life I was ashamed for being white because of the propaganda. Then I woke up and found out that this was a calculated campaign. Peace.

          • Sandy Marley

            Prejudice it is then. Worse is that you’re stuck with just one phrase. I feel no guilt in whatever has happened or will happen, and neither felt proud or ashamed, because i’m white. And neither do i spread anti-white propaganda. My propaganda is about peace in the world. Which apparently is hard to achieve, because of prejudice based on skin color, religion, even social status. We hate what we fear and we fear a lot of things, because of media crap. While i’m sure you’re well educated, you should agree that education is a solution to this problem. We have too many brainwashed, either through religion or discount offers, and instead of arguing why not to try and find a solution to immigration and integration problem.

          • Roy Hobs

            you should agree that education is a solution to this problem. We have too many brainwashed
            This is exactly my point Sandy. When you write — Europeans came, took the land, raped their women and killed their kids…
            You prove your brainwashing! You need to take your own advice and educate yourself. Read Scalp Dance as an example. Get a balanced and unbiased perspective. Sad really. You praise education but you yourself have failed to educate yourself. In your ignorance you spout anti-white propaganda. Have you been to a Tim Wise conference? Wouldn’t be surprised if you have.

          • Sandy Marley

            “Wouldn’t be surprised if you have”. – how does this fall into the conversation we’re having? And no, i haven’t, but i’m running a record right now to get familiar.
            Speaking about me being brainwashed, unfortunately all of us are. Luckily for me, assuming i’ll not die in an accident before old age, i have all the life to educate myself and help the others. And maybe we misunderstand each other with the word education. Because apparently you see me being anti-white, which is ridiculous, because i take no sides.
            I’m just curious, if you do argue just for the sake of arguing or you actually have a real point there? Because arguing about the past will not change the future. And I smell arrogance and the lack of compassion, which seems to be a problem of the days.
            So maybe let’s move onto the problem solving and discuss your point why do you think that “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”?

            That is actually horrible. Being anti-racist doesn’t mean being anti-white, but some people might never understand that. So good luck trying to preserve your family. I just hope, that one day you’ll understand that we all are human. And we all have the same rights, no matter the race or religion. And while you think of me as being anti-white, well think of this: I’ve seen white people as victims or racism, as well as i’ve seen the same for latin and middle east people. As long as there will be people who keep being pro or anti racist, the system will feed itself and this circle of killings for the “better cause” one way or another will never end. And probably it will never end, because of the greed for power that human is craving so much. Peace.

          • Roy Hobs

            Are you a Christian?

          • Sandy Marley

            I don’t think so.

    To be clearer, the Slovak National Party (SNS) is the Nazi Party of Slovakia. It has 15 seats in the Slovak Parliament and proposed this law so the government would only recognize religions that had more than 250,000 members. This would have left only two official religions Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Slovakia, and the Roman Catholic Church in Slovakia.
    As the Parliament passed this law with the lower number of 50,000 members only the Orthodox Church was sacrificed so they are the only losers and will not be considered a State Religion. While the Evangelical Church, the Roman Catholic Church, and the Byzantine (Greek Catholic) Church can apply to the government to help build new churches.
    Also, this law does not ban Islam. The Constitution of the Slovak Republic guarantees the freedom of religion, so this new law will have no effect on Muslims, but it will on the Orthodox Christians. Also, the old law didn’t recognize Judaism because there are only about 2,300 Jews left in Slovakia due to Anti-Jewish laws during a previous Roman Catholic administration. That is not an insult to Roman Catholics in the Slovak Republic or anywhere. It’s history.

    Good for them.

  • Robert

    The Lutheran church missouri synod has many sister church’s there. I don’t think we in the Wisconsin synod have churchs in fellowship with us over there ..So the 50,000 Mark would not allow us to be recognized either I suspect even though Lutherans are the 2nd largest body of christians in that country. They would be from another synod not in fellowship with us. So we would have to apply like any one else

    You want to make something seem cool and interesting to young people? Ban it. Congratulations, Slovakia, you just made Islam look fascinating to a generation of young people. Also, this is based on the idiotic notion that you can successfully ban ideas. You can’t. But you can galvanize people who feel oppressed and marginalized to action.

  • Per Pedersen

    Slovakia is an example to be followed by the rest of the EU, but I wonder if it even will be reported in the main stream media.

  • Rich

    Congratulations! Finally, a government for the country, culture, people and future of Slovakia. WONDERFUL!
