Google these two words — catholic islam — and the #1 search result is a page from AmericanCatholic.org entitled “Islam: What Catholics Should Know.” Instead of telling readers what reasonable Catholics (like the Pope?) understand to be true — that Islam is a violent political system married to a religion – the site paints quite a rosy picture. AmericanCatholic.org seems to be more “lip-service Muslim” than Catholic in its exposition of Islam. I’ll demonstrate that fact.
In order to see how far off base AmericanCatholic.org is, it is helpful to first look at other top Catholic sites. Many of them address Islam only superficially and with what seems to be a mind toward convincing individual Muslims of shared beliefs, very likely in the hope that they might be converted to Christianity. The #1 Catholic site in America, EWTN, covers Islam along those lines. Included in their online articles is a story explaining the importance of the Virgin Mary to “Mahomet” (Mohammed). There are some unfortunate pieces, like a claim by Fr. Mitch Pacwa that Muslim riots in response to cartoons of Mohammed were actually incited by governments, but there is nothing to suggest that there is a concerted effort to promote Islam at EWTN.

- The Left’s protection of sexual predators and pedophiles. – Sexual predators and pedophiles seem to find a natural home among the Left. ITFW is committed to exposing their dangerous fantasies.
- The infiltration of Leftist ideology in educational systems. -- In the battle for the education of our children, the first line of defense are parents that understand it’s their right and responsible to educate their children- not the government’s.
- Sexualizing innocence- The breaking down of the moral fabric of the nation, began with the cultural terrorism of the “sexual revolution.” Sexual exploitation is a tool of the Left designed to devastate the traditional family.

In the aftermath of the arrest of a gang of Pakistani Muslim sexual predators in Britain, a serious debate has erupted along cultural lines. The question? Should British investigators take seriously what some call an emerging trend in Britain of “Pakistani” men engaging in “on-street” grooming and sexual exploitation of young white girls? Or would it be ‘racist‘ for them to do so? Former Home Secretary and Labour MP Jack Straw is under heavy fire for pointing to the problem which some claim has been ignored for years in Britain out of fear of being labeled as racists.
Last week researchers identified 17 prosecutions since 1997, 14 of them in the past three years, involving the on-street grooming of girls aged 11 to 16. The victims came from 13 towns and cities and in each case two or more men were convicted of offences. In total, 56 people, with an average age of 28, were found guilty of crimes including rape, child abduction, indecent assault and sex with a child.
Three of the 56 were white, the rest Asian. Of those, 50 were Muslim and a majority were members of the British Pakistani community.
A “majority” from a group of 56 people would number 29 or more people, so though this is being debated as an issue of “race”, with the leftist media frequently using the term “Asian” in describing the men, and sometimes the word “Pakistani” one might rightly wonder if the problem may have more to do with Islam than with Pakistan (also known as “Land of the Pure” or “Pornistan“). I say this not only because of the numbers, which are fairly straight-forward, but also based on the history of pedophilia within Islam that is, of course, well-documented.
The Prophet Mohammad married a nine year old, so what should keep his followers from doing the same? Child marriage runs rampant throughout the Muslim world and is promoted through Sharia as a way to keep young women pure.
