Tim Wildmon Says Islam 'Does Not Teach' Charity
American Family Association president Tim Wildmon today used his column praising the admirable works of Christian charitable organizations to criticize Muslims.
If there ever was a contrast in worldviews, it is with Christianity and Islam. One of the most striking differences is that Christianity teaches, practices, and encourages charity. Islam does not. It is the Christians from America who are doing the majority of the private charity and humanitarian work around the world. Just these past couple of weeks alone, I was reminded by several examples of this.
American Family Association/American Family Radio has been participating in this project with Gospel for Asia for several years. Why do we care about the outcast people of India? Because in the Bible, Jesus instructs us to do so.
There is no such comparable work being done around the world by Islamic groups or organizations -- because the Koran does not teach such charity.
Religion, more than anything else, affects the values and morals of a culture, a society, a country.
In fact, charitable giving is one of the five pillars of Islam. Wildmon could have done a simple Google search to find the names of major Muslim charitable organizations like Islamic Relief, Red Crescent Societies and Muslim Aid, but seeing that the American Family Association is one of the most malicious purveyors of misinformation and bigotry in this country, it should come as no surprise that its leader can twist an article about the importance of charitable work into an attack on the Muslim people.
