Muslims More Moral Than Christians?
Muslims riot in outrage over Playboy coming to Indonesia!
by David J. Stewart | April 13, 2006
On the news today, I saw angry Muslims rioting, smashing out windows, and completely destroying a new Playboy office in Indonesia. It made my day! I couldn't help but wonder what America would be like today, if Christians had reacted the same way back in 1953 when pervert, Hugh Hefner, first opened the doors of Playboy. It is tragic that unsaved Muslims, who don't know Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, actually have more morality than most born again Christians in the world. I don't agree with Muslim abuses; BUT, the Muslims come closer to being right than most Christians do in our American culture concerning morality. America's rebellious, feminist, and immodestly dressed women are a cancer in our society. I admire Muslim women who wear head coverings, and obey their husbands. I wish every Playboy office and magazine were gone forever. One day the Lord is going to clean this mess up. What a day that will be!
Muslim activists attack Playboy offices in Indonesia

Indonesian Muslims are angered by a new Playboy office in Jakarta.
JAKARTA, Indonesia - About 300 members of the Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI) took out a protest rally and attacked Playboy's new offices in Indonesia. The famous men's magazine was launched in the most populous Muslim country in the world last week, but hardliner Muslims fear that the magazine would adversely affect the youth of the country who are already heavily influenced by the "decadent" Western culture.
The FPI activists gathered outside Playboy's offices and hurled stones tore up copies of the magazines and threatened more protests unless the magazine stopped publication in the country. About 90 policemen were stationed outside the building and it was reported that one of them suffered minor injuries.
"We will carry out more attacks if Playboy refuses to stop publishing," Salim Ali Hamid, one of the leaders of FPI told a local radio station. Playboy's Indonesian edition was launched last Friday and quickly sold out with many copies being sold on the black market for three times the price of the original at 39,000 rupiah ($4.33).
The issue is where to draw the line on decency.
The magazine does not carry any nude pictures, but had images of underwear-clad women in addition to an interview with the country's most famous author, Pramoedya Ananta Toer. FPI activists are already known as the de facto culture police and attack Jakarta's most famous nightspots.
FPI has maintained that Playboy is like pornography and cannot be published in the country. South Jakarta police chief Wiliardi Wizard was quoted as telling Reuters that police would be questioning the leader of the FPI, “If they can hand over the perpetrators then that's good. Otherwise we'll have to hunt them,” he said.
The Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has taken into consideration the concerns voiced by several Muslim leaders before giving the nod for Playboy's publication in February. Muslims make up about 85 percent of Indonesia's population of 220 million. -SOURCE
I would also like to point out a statement in the above article ... "The magazine does not carry any nude pictures, but had images of underwear-clad women..." That describes nearly every clothing catalog in America. It also PROVES that such immodestly clothed women are committing pornography. One of the biggest unrecognized and subtle sources of PORNOGRAPHY in America are it's catalogs that display women in their underwear, negligees, etc. It is sinful for any woman to take off her clothes, and allow people to take pictures of her in her underwear, to showcase in magazines. Could you imagine a company that advertises women's underwear by sending a woman into your personal home? She strips down to her underwear, and then posses in front of your husband, trying to sell you some clothes. Think of the adulterous thoughts, the lasciviousness, and the damage being done to your marriage and home. No wonder the divorce rate is over 50%. No wonder sexual sins are running rampant. No wonder child-pornography is a $20,000,000,000 a year industry. Some of today's clothing catalogs even present young girls in provocative attire, with imprudent looks, and luring photography.
There is not a husband in America who is not spiritually attacked by such lewd and inappropriate type catalogs left laying around the home. The wise and godly wife will rid her home of such demonic catalogs to help her husband spiritually. It's difficult enough for a man to maintain a clean mind nowadays, why would you want to make it even harder for your husband by leaving such filth lying around? Truly, the love of money is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10). Companies are so greedy to make money, that they have absolutely no reservations about promoting their pornography. Some people might term it "soft" pornography; BUT, pornography is pornography!!! There's no such thing as a "white lie," all lying is horribly sinful. There's no such thing as "white witchcraft" (Wicca), all witchcraft is an abomination to God. And there's no such thing as "soft porn," all pornography is demonic, because it stirs unholy desires. Marriage is the only acceptable outlet for one's sexual desires (Hebrews 13:4).
The average person chuckles and laughs at the thought of catalogs containing pornography. This is because of the hardcore pornography business itself. Most people look at scantily clad women in catalogs as harmless in COMPARISON to Playboy, Penthouse, and other works of darkness. BUT, when we COMPARE those seemingly innocent clothing catalogs to the holy Word of God, we quickly realize that such catalogs are extremely sinful. We read in Matthew 5:28, "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." And in 1st Timothy 2:9, "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel..." And again in Proverb 7:10, "And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtle of heart." Carefully notice that the "harlot" was wearing clothing; but, it was the attire of a harlot. Clearly, a woman posing in her underwear or in a negligee in a catalog would be considered the attire of a harlot. No wonder America is going to Hell.
