The Global Pop culture is eating up the youth in each and every country around the globe.It is taking over the moral values and the cultures of those countries.As Imam Anwar Awlaki describes it in “Life of Muhammad saw – The Meccan Period CD 1”
“There is a global culture that is being forced down the throats of everyone on the face of the earth. This global culture is protected and promoted…we are not really dealing with a global culture that is benign or compassionate. This is a culture that gives you no choice… It is a very intolerant culture, that can not co exist with anything else. It uproots every other culture on the face of the earth. Just cuts the roots of it. And you have a quote here by Alexander Sofzen. He is a famous Russian Historian writer. He says To destroy a people, you must sever their roots. So its really a destruction of the people of the earth because every other culture is being demolished. So this is not a global culture that will co exist with others, it will replace others.”
This pop culture has attacked the roots of the human moral system promoting vulgar dressing, encouraging free open lifestyle, popularizing pornography, music, drinking etc…
Muslims are usually called extremists, fundamentalists, terrorists, conservative and intolerant if they stand up against this culture and refuse to adapt it as it goes against the commandments of Allah (God) , Quran and the Sunnah.
I had a chance to see the third part of a documentary called God’s Warriors on CNN.I was quite surprised and happy to see that there are sane Americans out there who also have rejected this culture calling it immoral and have stood up to speak against it. What was even more surprising is that majority of these “warriors” were youngsters and teenagers…
Following is a brief Introduction to the documentary with a brief intro to the “Battle Cry Campaign” followed by a small clip from this documentary. A Must Watch!
God’s Warriors was a three-part CNN documentary produced by Christiane Amanpour in which she compares the rise of religious fundamentalism as a political force in the world. The documentary was filmed in the United States, Europe and Middle East. It focuses on the three major monotheistic religions of the world, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
The three chapters were titled God’s Jewish Warriors, God’s Muslim Warriors, and God’s Christian Warriors. The first describes the Jewish settlement movement in Israel and the fund-raising in the United States that supports it, while the second presents issues of radical Islam and Sharia law. The final segment focused on the United States and the political influence of Christian religious leaders. ( Source Wikipedia)
The following Video Clip from God’s Christian Warriors take you to a BattleCry Campaign.
The Battle Cry Campaign is an organizing initiative of a parachurch organization known as Teen Mania Ministries. This initiative, started in 2005 and headed by Teen Mania founder Ron Luce, has an evangelical Christian orientation.
The Campaign maintains that “for the first time ever,” “sexualized culture,” “point and click pornography,” and young people being “saturated with media influence” spell doom for Christianity in America.
“A stealthy enemy has infiltrated our country and is preying upon the hearts and minds of 33 million American teens. Corporations, media conglomerates and purveyors of popular culture have spent billions to seduce and enslave our youth.”
This is what these Christians are saying! Shame on us Muslims – Shame on our youth! We are blindly following the Western Culture! We are busy in parties, clubbing, music and movies! We are busy watching MTV or trying to be on MTV… we are just too busy trying to copy their dresses, way of walking talking speaking and even sleeping!
