|BILLY DASHER OPINION: Muslims can't be good Americans

There has been a recent bombardment of accusations in the local and national media concerning those who disagree with the current regime in Washington. We are being accused of spreading hate and being racists. The fact the majority of Americans disagree with the current policies in Washington and the path of financial destruction they have us on, does not make those who disagree racist.
It has nothing to do with color.
Most recently, we are being accused of racism and "Islamaphobia" because of concern over Muslims. Last time I checked, Muslim is not a race. It is not Muslims we fear. It is the teachings of Islam that cause concern.
It is impossible for a "good Muslim" to be a good American. Our Constitution was founded on moral Christian principals and is the antithesis of Sharia law. You cannot be a Quran-believing Muslim and at the same time hold fast to the principles America was founded on for the same reason you cannot be a true Christian if you do not believe the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God.
Separation of church and state does not exist in Islamic countries because Islam is the law. Separation of church and state in America was intended to keep government out of the church, not the other way around.
How can a religion teach and preach hatred of anyone who is a non-believer and still be referred to as "peaceful." If there are peaceful American Muslims, where are they? Where were they after 9/11? I am still waiting for a "peaceful" Muslim - any Muslim - to come forward and denounce the 9/11 atrocity.
Where were the "peaceful" Muslims after one of their radical brothers murdered 13 of our country's finest at Fort Hood? Why was there no news of our "peaceful" fellow American Muslims jointly denouncing those terrorist acts? Where were the editorials and the television interviews of "peaceful" Muslims condemning the Muslim extremist?
None came forward. Were they afraid? The horrific sight of the Twin Towers collapsing is a memory that still lingers in my mind. Also horrific were the news videos the following day of "peaceful" Muslims around the world dancing in the streets and celebrating our tragedy. Why do American Muslims show no shame?
Now they want to build a mosque near ground zero. The imam has even accused America of being partially responsible for the 9/11 attack. Not only has he failed to denounce his Islamic extremist brothers, he continues to make excuses for their actions. Even our president has given his approval of the mosque.
Christians traveling in any Muslim country have no religious rights and are in danger if they mention Christianity. Why must we forfeit our rights and give in to every Muslim demand? Americans are tired of this in-your-face attitude expressed by those who claim to be "peaceful Muslims" and it's why we are so distrustful of Islam.
Millions of peaceful legal immigrants down through the years have left their native lands and come to America in search of peace and freedom from religious persecution.
It was those same peaceful immigrants who took up arms during the American Revolution in opposition to those who would come to take away freedom and rule with oppression. Now it is the descendants of those same peaceful Americans who are being driven to the edge by the likes of those on the far left who have no agenda but to nullify our Constitution, destroy capitalism, tax us into oblivion and deny our Christian heritage and all the wonderful things that have made us a free and peaceful nation.
Before my dad died in 1974, he warned one day there would be another war in this country, but the next one would not be between North and South. It would be an uprising against an oppressive, tyrannical government.
If you truly love this country, please pay attention to what is going on in the political world. Educate yourself by listening to both sides. If you do, it will be easy for you to make intelligent decisions at the polls.
The upcoming November election may be the most pivotal in the history of this great country, and it may be our last opportunity to salvage our Christian heritage and bring back common-sense government.
God help us.

If you are ashamed to stand by your colors, you had better seek another flag.
