support for mosques must be stopped!
As a society, we shoot ourselves in the foot if we give the same privileges to Islam that we give to the Folk Church, “says Pernille Vermund, leader of New Citizens.
Mosques should not be treated equally with the people church. State support for mosques must be stopped, says Pernille Vermund, leader of the party New Citizens in Denmark.
Politicians are naive in their misunderstood tolerance to Islam. The ideology of Islam stands for all the opposite of Western values, democracy and equality. Therefore, Islam must have no influence on our society, “says Pernille Vermund. Vermund elaborates on a debate post she has and another New Citizen candidate, Poul Højlund, had in the newspaper JyskeVestkysten Monday. (The article is not online)
Here in the country one must believe and think as you please. That’s how it should be. The state must not interfere. Therefore, we must not forbid Muslims to believe. Faith is a private matter. But Islam must have no influence on society. Muslims’ religion must remain private, “they write in the article.
«In three specific areas, the state supports Islam and involves Islam in society. Muslims who pay to the Sharia mosques can withdraw the amount from tax. Imams can, on behalf of the state, make two Muslims legal formally married people. And Sharia preachers from abroad receive a residence permit under special conditions. ”
“As a community, we shoot ourselves in the foot by giving the same privileges to Islam as we give to the People’s Church. Islam is both a religion and an ideology. Islam is both faith and politics. It can not be separated. You might think that our politicians had gradually realized that Islam is a danger to democratic societies. Islam must not be recognized but forced back, “writes Vermund and Højlund.
