John Q. Adams on Islam

I do not harbor a Founding Fathers fetish, as I have observed many right-wing Americans to have.

That being said, they were at the forefront of intellectual thought in their Time.

Curiously enough, some of them had some things to say about Islam.
Being a former Muslim, I am curious about what they said.

This is John Quincy Adams' talking about Islam.

In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.

This is not an analyses of the truthfulness of JQA's thoughts on Islam.

This is to show that the Founding Fathers most definitely did NOT subscribe to this false doctrine of Equality and Diversity that has been propagated throughout America.

The proper response to this post would be to find a Founding Father who was Muslim.

Good Luck.
