Ralph Ellis - The Enlightenment & The Threat of Islam
November 1, 2011
In the second hour for members, Ralph starts talking about the modern Catholic Church, who is constantly at the center of a scandal. We move on to discuss what we gained from the Protestant Reformation from technology, to science and spirituality. Ralph says we’ve forgotten what we fought for and now are going backwards. He’ll explain how we’ve stagnated. This leads us into a controversial topic about Islam as a threat to our Enlightenment. We’ll talk about the Quran, not as a book of peace. Now days it is not politically correct to scrutinize the religion of Islam as it is viewed as a hate crime, yet Christian religions face constant scrutiny and attacks. Ralph urges people to read the Quran for themselves. Later, we discuss the destruction of the west and deliberate forced integration for political reasons. Is it time for Islam to have a reformation? We end talking about multi-culturalism verses multi-nationalism, an idea that worked well in Rome. Also, we talk about guilt based cultures that have become too liberal.
