Are Muslims Being Forced to Convert to Christianity?

A recent MSN headline for an article in The Guardian suggested that Muslim asylum seekers in Greece are being forced to convert to Christianity. The article, however, simply reported that two Christian aid workers gave copies of the Gospel of John to some Muslims at the camp. Why would the media suggest that Muslims were being forced to convert when they were only being given copies of a single book of the Bible?

I've been mulling this over. MSN is following Betteridge's law of headlines because they couldn't think of a way to make the headline snappy. It did not really need to be news, but the Guardian thought it was either a unusual complication to the refugee crisis, or that it counted as some kind of moral equivalency (attempt).
I think these refugees are just being histrionic. I can't think of any logical reason that would validate any of these feelings, but I think that they decided in their heads that it must mean they wouldn't get food or help if they remained Muslim or something. Obviously, that's wrong. How could they not realise that this decision paper was optional?

It's almost as if the refugees don't understand that Dawa'h is similar to evangelism. Honestly, I wouldn't accept their religious text in good faith, but I wouldn't interpret it in bad faith. They would never, for example, accept Catholics being upset with Dawa'h during Lent or accept any other kind of Christian being angry about Da'wah during a major Christian holiday, if they believe in the concept of da'wah at all.

I read something about Christians in Syria not allowing Muslims to join their religion. Maybe that's why they don't understand or are confused by this.

I personally believe in the idea that there are genuine refugees, even these people.

Well, if you read the bible and then compare it to the Qur'an, you're pretty much forced to reject Islam if you are capable of rational thought. How could Islam be expected to withstand free thought.

In any case, it's good that it was only 2 Christians, if it had been four that would have been overwhelming force, and 6 would have been genocide.

David, all you need to realise is that the Guardian is 1. ultra left-wing 2. completely anti-Christian and 3. completely pro-Zionist. Check out the editor's profile!

Luckily nobody in Britain takes any notice of this rag. If it were not for its on-line presence it would have gone bankrupt years ago. Its circulation figures are on a par with the Beano; a children's comic!

Well, one consideration, is that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 BANS anyone or anything to do with Islam, from entering the United States, starting in 1952, and it's STILL IN EFFECT.

ISLAM WAS BANNED FROM THE USA IN 1952 but Obama doesn’t want you to know that, nor does he respect or uphold US law.

The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization and nationality for the United States.

That Act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of aliens to the US and remains in effect today.

Among the many issues it covers, one in particular found in Chapter 2, Section 212, is the prohibition of entry in to the US if the alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by force, violence or by other unconstitutional means.”

This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States but this law is being ignored by the White House.
Islamic immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam which is antithethical to the United States government, the Constitution and to the Republic.

All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government.

Now the politically correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the United States because Islam is a ‘religion.’

Whether it is a ‘religion’ is immaterial because the law states that aliens who are affiliated with any organization that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited.
