Think Progress is a weblog sponsored by the far left “Center for American Progress,” set up by Clintonista John Podesta to advance progressive fascism. The weblog’s stated objective is to “‘provide[s] a forum that advances progressive ideas and policies.'”
Apparently, part of advancing Progressive ideas is to advance Islam while shutting down Christianity, because Think Progress sez: Public Prayers to Jesus bad. Public Prayers to Allah good.
The “reasoning” that Think Progress provides is that ‘Allah’ is generic whereas ‘Jesus’ is a brand-name. Horsesh-t! The truth is, the left has a fetish for things foreign, exotic, and repressive; Islam, communism, Balinese food … and an aversion to faith and values associated with the Western culture of freedom and individuality they despise.
One would think a “Progressive” organization would have problems with a religion that oppresses women, stones gays to death, and enforces a rigid social hierarchy… but only if one completely misunderstands what progressivism is really about.
