Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Religion of Peace?

Due to the complete dearth of media coverage, I imagine that many people are not aware of a gruesome event that happened in Buffalo, NY last week.

The founder of a US television station aimed at countering stereotypes of Muslims has been arrested and charged with beheading his wife, local media reported.

Muzzammil Hassan was charged with second-degree murder of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, whose decapitated body was found Thursday by police at the Bridges TV station in a Buffalo suburb in New York state, The Buffalo News reported Monday.

"He came to the police station at 6:20 pm (Thursday) and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz told the newspaper.

Police reportedly went to Bridges TV, which Hassan founded in 2004, and discovered her body.
If it had been reported widely, this “honor killing” certainly would have served to accomplish the goal of Hassan’s Bridges TV. The prevailing stereotype of Islam as a religion of peace would have been successfully countered.

Comedian Steven Crowder recently issued a Qur’an Challenge to determine if the actions of Hassan were contrary to Islam or in line with its teaching. It’s only funny because it’s true.
