To those who believe that the here and now, what one can touch and see is ALL THERE IS, they will cling to their miserable lives at all costs!
These were the ones who exclaimed "We can't stand pat!" during the cold war! They were the ones who avowed "Better Red Than Dead!" Thus, we can see how secularism, rather than being a "liberation" of thought, soon leads to slavery!
The link between faith and freedom is vital. A man who is willing to lay down his life for liberty is the one who gains it. "Those who lose their life for my sake will find it" as it says in Scripture (or thereabouts, since I cannot find the exact quotation right now. Look it up yourself!)
And conversely, "Those who seek to save their lives shall lose it". Certainly the cowards who try to cut deals with the allegator to save their hides are eventually eaten.
Currently, people like George Galloway, who are carrying water for the Islamic Jihadists, are not willing to fight for western Civilization, believing that playing ball with the enemy will save them personally. But a Sheik (and sorry I can't find this citation either) said something to the effect "make friends with them, (meaning us Kuffar)get close to them, so you can kill them!"
The subconscious assumption made by Mr. Galloway is that the Islamists operate under the Christian "Golden Rule"! In its raw essence, if I kiss the butts of the Islamists, they will be nice to me! But that's not the way Islam works!
Islam divides the world in two: Dar al-Islam (world of Submission) and the Dar al-Harb (the world of war). Islam also divides humanity into men and women, and believers and "the Kuffar". Thus, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" does not apply across the divisions. If you are an unbeliever, you must convert or die. If you are a Christian or a Jew, you may have the third option of submitting to the Shari'ah, paying the jizyah, and being humiliated. The fact that you have been kissing butt for awhile, Mr Galloway, doesn't change your option.
