I found this short movie very disturbing, but not for the reasons others would. The worst, most divisive, destructive, and scary part was at the end where the guy said “As believers, we call upon you to join the effort, to share the gospel message with the changing world. This is a call to action.”

Basically, the Christian religion is scaring people by saying the Muslim religion is coming. Can you think of any worse reason to have a baby than to beat the other ‘kind’ of people that are having more babies than you? Religion is just like a virus that infects the minds of otherwise sane people to make them swarms and multiply, just like bacteria in a laboratory Petri dish.
I don’t care about what flavor of delusional invisible man in the sky people pray to. I care about human rights. I don’t care if someone’s of Muslim heritage, as long as he doesn’t think that if a woman tries to get an education she should have battery acid thrown in her face, or if he flies a plain into a building he gets 72 virgins in paradise. Just as I don’t care if someone’s of Christian heritage, as long as he doesn’t think it okay to shoot abortion doctors, persecute homosexuals, inhibiting condoms in AIDS rampant Africa, teach ‘god-did-it’ creationism instead of evolution in classrooms, or to allow Priests to fuck little boys up the ass. To think otherwise is simple minded racism.
The good news is that the video isn’t true. Islam isn’t the fastest growing religion. Secularism is the fastest growing ‘religion’. As people are getting better educated, and this includes immigrants to western democracies, their critical thinking skills are forcing them to leave their religious beliefs behind. However, even though things are getting better, mankind’s technological advancement is far out pacing our social advancement. Mixing medieval thinking with scientific advances like the human DNA gnome, protecting the planet’s ecosystems, nuclear bombs manufacture, and yes, overpopulation, is a recipe for disaster.
The best thing that the USA has is the sentence in the First Amendment that advocates the separation of church and state that says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”. That’s saving us from a religious war that this video is promoting.
