One Brave Cartoonist Explains ‘Why We MUST Draw Mohammed’

“Mohammed cartoons don’t inspire Islamic violence. Islamic violence inspires Mohammed cartoons.” – Bosch Fawstin This is not an attempt to purposely enflame American Muslims against non-Muslims. I worry sometimes that perhaps it seems that we, at Eagle Rising, are against every practitioner and follower of Islam. It’s not so, but I can see why this perception exists. It’s very hard to separate Islam from radical Islam; in fact, as many of our readers have pointed out in the past, there Read more […]

Hamas-CAIR Leader Training Jihadis to Use Guns in American Mosques!

Yes, just what we need — state sanctioned jihad training in terror-tied mosques. Nezar Hamze is a notorious Muslim Brotherhood CAIR operative and somehow he got himself named ‘Deputy Sheriff.” How does someone with no law enforcement background get to be Deputy Sheriff? And more to the point, how does someone with Hamze’s background get to be Deputy Sheriff? This fits nicely with the famous quote by Turkish President Recip Erdogan, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, Read more […]

Hillary Clinton: Muslims ‘Have Nothing Whatsoever to do With Terrorism’

Did Hillary Clinton get confused again? On Thursday, the UK Daily Mail said, the Democratic Party front-runner attacked anti-jihad conservatives for daring to notice that radical Muslims are involved in terrorist activities. “Islam itself is not our adversary,” she said, reading her speech at the Council on Foreign Relations from a teleprompter. “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” According to the Daily Mail, Clinton “slowed Read more […]

Atheist: Okay to Disparage Christians, But Islam Off-Limits Because We ‘Fear’ Them

An atheist professor said Tuesday that it’s acceptable to criticize Christians but not Muslims, because he does not “fear” retaliation from Christians. “I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear,” Phil Zuckerman said at a discussion on religious liberty at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. “I’ve got three kids. “So I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I’m not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Read more […]

Bishops launched a global appeal Monday for a break-through at upcoming Paris climate talks, including a “complete decarbonisation” of the world’s economy and more help for poor countries battling the effects of climate change.

From across five continents they called “not only for ‘drastic reduction in the emission of Read more […]

Majority of GOP, Plurality of Democrats Agree with Ben Carson that a Muslim Shouldn’t be President!

The topline figure: 57 percent of the public overall agree with Carson that a Muslim shouldn’t be put in charge of the country versus just 27 percent who disagree, with another 52 percent claiming that he shouldn’t apologize for what he said. It’s Democrats who’ve been doing most of the scolding, though, and so it’s Democrats whose numbers are most interesting here. Sometimes in polls that touch on religion, you’ll find an alignment between Republicans and black voters. Not this time. Read more […]

Ted Cruz Praises Pope Francis for Leading on Social and Religious Issues

In the past few months, we have witnessed the gravest attacks on life, marriage, and religious liberty that our nation has ever endured. Planned Parenthood is profiting from unborn babies they dismember. The Supreme Court has undermined the truth of marriage in all 50 states. And Christians are being fined, and even thrown in jail, for their faith. These recent actions are attempting to rip by the roots the tenets that have made this nation the freest on the face of the planet. Yet this Read more […]

Prominent Cuban-American priest, Father Alberto Cutié, questions Pope Francis’ apparently warm attitude towards the Castro dictatorship during his visit to Cuba this week, asking in a Miami Herald column, “Why do you so strongly condemn capitalism … but we never see an equally strong condemnation of atheist communism?” Writing for the Spanish-language El Nuevo Herald, Father Cutié–a former television and radio host, who left the Catholic priesthood for the Episcopal Church to start Read more […]
