I guess everyone knows what part Muslims have in modern European politics today. However, how is all that connected to Christianity? Let's take a few steps back in history, about 2 millennia ago when we can first trace the origin of Abrahamic religion.
As Sphaer and I have discussed earlier, it is very likely Christianity started as a revolt against the Roman Empire, which also as we know, utterly failed. Christianity never managed to give its believers more freedom. The Roman Empire later even incorporated the religion into itself instead of its previous Roman mythology akin to that of Greece, and at this point, Christianity's existence was a de facto, when the Roman emperors stated the ultimatum: believe or die. Christianity then spread further throughout the Empire and to Europe and missionaries kept doing repeated attempts to convert the pagans up north (ie Scandinavia) even though Scandinavia was out of reach for the Roman Empire rule. As we know, they got stuck with Germany and never managed to move more north and then the empire collapsed. Too bad for the Romans. However, the religion managed to survive, and no wonder a few of the most avid believers are to be found in central Europe (Poland and over Slavic countries).
After the Roman Empire fell, Europe slowly moved into what would later be known as the Dark Ages. The name is pretty literary, no one wanted to live during the Dark Ages. What people feared the most of all? The Inquisition who so kindly kept the common man in place through Christian propaganda and what happens when you defy the might of Christ. In other words, torture and death. You would afterwards be sent to Hell at Judgement Day. However, war started to tear all countries apart, and people started to loose faith in Christ, and the so called Enlightenment era began. While it was still ok to believe in a beardy man in the skies, human thought and freedom of thinking was appreciated the most. This one again backlashed with the Romanticism when you would rather live in a fantasy than in reality, something that the previous Enlightment followers had regarded highly.
Then... we pass into our modern society with liberalism oozing all throughout European politics. Now back to the initial question, what has this all to do with Islam and the Muslim invasion?
It's all repeating again. Islam is right now confined to a very specific area of the world, just like Christianity was, but now it's spreading slowly throughout Europe mostly due to Muslim immigrants. The politicians are so stuck up in their liberal values they even make rules that only work for the minority; the latest outrage was in the UK where some judge minor had come up with the very clever idea to incorporate Sharia laws into the existing British law system. Even if you've never seriously studied Sharia and Islam, it's not something we really want to have in Europe where it's fine to stone women to death and cut off the hands of thieves.
Question is what we will do to revert back this "invasion", or I am not surprised if we will move into a similarity such as the Dark Ages. In terms of liberalism, Muslim countries are all far behind. I have started to think whether to start a passive political movement, whose job is to enlighten and make people "wake up". It's not enough to just stay at home feeling frustrated and think "I don't think this is ok but there is nothing I can do". But won't this look like a Nazi movement? No, not if we are careful always stating that we don't mind immigrants, but this is getting out of control when politicans can no longer dare saying no. Getting other colored people such as myself behind it, it would be hard to accuse me as a Nazi since I am as far away from the Aryan race as it can get.
What do you think? Of course, this probably concerns Europeans a lot more than Americans.
