Carson Is Right on Islam

Andy McCarthy makes the case totally and completely.  Here's the clincher-graph:

...Throughout this column, I have used the term “belief system,” rather than “religion,” advisedly. Islam, in its classical interpretation, is a comprehensive sociopolitical system with its own legal code. Yes, it has some strictly theological tenets (e.g., the oneness of Allah, the conceit that Mohammed is the final prophet). These, however, comprise but a small percentage of Islamic belief, which covers the full extent of political, economic, and social life — from warfare to hygiene, in exacting rules resistant to change. That is why in virtually every Islamic society — i.e., wherever sharia is incorporated into law — the separation of spiritual and political life is rejected; it is why we find misogyny, anti-Semitism, homophobia, ruthless discrimination against religious minorities, hostility to freedom, suspicion of reason, and backwardness in economics and education....

Some of you see in the phrase "comprehensive sociopolitical system" the similarity with the Mosaic Law system--which was replaced by Christianity.  There's a reason that Christ did what He did.

Forget about political correctness, please.  This is a Cultural War, in the fullest sense of each word.  Get used to it as you watch it play out in Germany, England, and Sweden.
