How would I feel if I was John Walker Lindhís
mother? Furious. How would I feel if I was Mike Spannís
mother? Furious as well. But not at John Walker Lindh. I
try to imagine that, the magnitude, a life of raising my son, caring for
him, loving him, worrying over him, investing everything I have to the son
I love so muchÖ dead. Would I really not be angry at
John Walker Lindh for betraying our country? In honesty, no. I
would be 100% furious with the school system that pointed John in that
direction in the first place. John Walker Lindh was once an
innocent, Mike Spann was an innocent, my son is an innocent. They
were CHILDREN and Californiaís irresponsible determination to push other
religions on our children, needs to be dealt with, and swiftly.
Even if I pictured John happy about my sonís death,
how would I feel? Angry, yes. But I would see right past John
to the principality that corrupted and twisted his mind in the first
LIES I read in the textbook about Islam. The
propaganda, the subtle swirl of imagination activities asking children to
walk in those shoes. John Walker Lindh did a good job of walking in
the shoes of Muslims, he imagined being a Muslim soldier, just like his
teachers told him to. Obviously he decided he liked it. Why
wouldnít he? The Islam presented in the textbook is a FAR CRY from
reality. If California insists on teaching religion in depth they at
least should tell the truth! Iíve studied those lies in the textbook
for many months now and compared them to what Islamís holy book, the
Quíran, states. What sugar-coated bad seeds! And the maligning
of Christ and Christianity in the "Christian" section
is even worse. Not all Islam seeds will result in boys converting to
Islam, but if even one does, and if it was my precious sonÖ. There
would be nothing that California could do to replace what it had taken.
Nothing. I would spend the rest of my life praying that God would
help me forgive the politicians that have ignored my pleas to do something
about the propaganda in the textbooks. Gov. Davis, Diane Feinstein,
Barbara Boxer, Delaine Eastin, none of them would even respond to my
letters. None of them would address the issue. None of them
cared. If I was Mike Spannís mother, I would want to lay my dead
sonís body on the steps of the State Capitol of California. That is
exactly where the responsibility lies. If you donít believe me, read
the textbook. You will be shocked.
California is currently being led by men and women in
complete darkness. God has been so patient with our nation, but when we
cross the line and ask our children to "walk through the fire,"
spiritually crippling them, then judgment is right around the corner.
I don't blame the Muslims at all. Our own politicians are
responsible, paying people to lead our children to other gods. We
were once a Christian nation. We will reap the consequences of
turning our backs on God, for He will turn His back on us. It's
It's very popular to hate John Walker Lindh right
now. So much that I had to count the cost before posting this. The hatred
people express in the media is deep and furious. It reminds me of sharks
in a feeding frenzy. I don't know how John Walker feels about his
actions today. Did Jesus talk to the woman thrown at His feet accused of
adultery before He defended her? No. John Walker did exactly what the adulterous
woman did, as God considers praying to another god spiritual adultery.
So I look straight into an ocean of sharks clamoring to be fed and ask,
"Who among you is without sin, cast the first stone."
I do not condone what John Walker has done, and if
found guilty I believe he should be punished, but not death. Put down the
stones of hatred and consider that California definitely shares a large
portion of the blame. The New York Times reports
"Islam is said to be the nation's fastest-growing religion, fueled by
immigration, high birth rates and widespread conversion. One expert
estimates that 25,000 people a year become Muslims in this country; some
clerics say they have seen conversion rates quadruple since Sept. 11."
How many more John Walkers, Jose Padillas, World Trade Center
horrors, Mike Spanns and Daniel Pearls before we stop promoting Islam in
Please pray for the mothers of Mike Spann and John
Walker Lindh. My heart really breaks for both of them.
