If you haven’t yet seen the movie The Sound of Freedom, starring Jim Caviezel, you owe it to yourself and to the huge numbers of sex-trafficked children in America and around the world to view it as soon as possible. Ignore the exceedingly strange responses to the movie by media outlets like The Washington Post, The Guardian, Forbes, Rolling Stone, and others, that seek to keep people from seeing the film by smearing it (quoting from The Guardian) as “the QAnon-adjacent thriller seducing America.”
Leftist media outlets seem to have forgotten the adage, “Don’t shoot the messenger.” If children are being sex trafficked around the world, why wouldn’t every human who is not a sex trafficker oppose the practice? Perhaps because people in the mainstream media are consumers? Or “just following orders”? How about moral character? They might say that they don’t believe the problems are real, but that’s a foolish response. Published statistics say otherwise:
The 2021 Global Estimates indicate a total of 6.3 million people are in situations of forced commercial sexual exploitation on any given day. This number includes 1.7 million children in commercial sexual exploitation, about a quarter of the total. Gender is a critical determining factor – nearly four out of every five of those trapped in forced commercial exploitation are girls or women.1
Also, ignore the conservative voices that are saying Tim Ballard is “controlled opposition” and the movie is a “psyop.” I’m a conservative, and I think that many conservatives who repeat these accusations are naïve about the depth and cleverness of the evil people who are opposing the forces of love and freedom. What a brilliant ploy, to attack Ballard (and the movie) by saying on the one hand that he’s a “Q-Anon conspiracy nut” and on the other that he’s working for the pedophiles. The hoped-for results? People don’t see the movie and the very real problem of child sex trafficking is ignored. The accusations are the psyop.
With so much screaming and shouting and bandied accusations trying to bury this movie, freedom-loving Americans (and all people) who want to protect children from evil must rush to this movie and spread the word to as many people as possible.
I watched an interview with Ballard, Caviezel, and Jordan Peterson in which Ballard stated that the United States was one of the largest consumers of pedophilia and its related materials. I find this horrifying, of course, and I feel deeply disappointed that our country’s culture has sunk so low and moved so far away from the sacred love created by God. At the same time, I believe that attention needs to be given to a different civilization that has a deep entanglement with the sexual abuse of girls and women: the global political/religious culture of Islam.
Islam, Pedophilia, and Rape?
This is a shocking topic and will create outrage in many circles. But it is entirely documented in Islamic doctrine, history, and current events around the world. This is especially pertinent because Muslims in the United States have started working with Christian conservatives as they oppose the hypersexualization of children in schools—and that’s a good thing. I am not accusing those particular Muslims of anything and I wish to strongly state that there are undoubtedly millions of individual Muslims who are honorable, decent, moral individuals who find child sex trafficking profoundly evil.
My remarks are about the traditions and mores of Islam that can lead individuals who happen to be Muslim into dark places that violate the rights of children.
Note that Orthodox Islam does not allow any criticism of its tenets, traditions, or actions. Thus, discussing these topics with American Muslims may be arduous or impossible, depending on their level of orthodoxy. Criticizing Mohammed with any Muslim is next to impossible.
There are two additional factors that make discussions about Islam and Mohammed difficult. One is that a significant number of Western Muslims may not have studied all the problematic parts of their own religion. The literature is vast: the Qur’an, the “Hadith” (the actions and traditions of Mohammed), and the “Sira” (the life of Mohammed). There are contradictory verses one must deal with and the Qur’an has been assembled out of chronological order.
A second problem is that Islamic fundamentalists and apologists often deny the darker issues within Islam and practice a religiously-sanctioned method of deceit called “taqiya.”
I provide a link below to an article I wrote called “Saving Western Civilization Demands That We Study Islam: Presenting a simple resource guide to gain a clear understanding of the REAL Islam.”2
One might ask: why bother even thinking about Islam? Everyone has the right to believe in their own religion, so it’s a “non-issue.” But it’s important to consider this: it really doesn’t matter what people believe unless and until that belief impacts the political and cultural freedoms and well-being of others. When that happens, we have a duty and a right to do something about it. In the context of this article, the issues are the safety and well-being of children and women and the plague of sex trafficking around the world—including the world of Islam.
It is a huge topic indeed, and I offer an introduction to it in a just-published video called “For Muslims and Non-Muslims, Islam Is the Ultimate Tyranny.” The video appears below. Some of the topics covered include:
- The doctrinal justifications in Islam that allow men to marry and have sex with nine-year-old girls (a tradition started by Mohammed and continued ever since).
- The doctrinal justifications in Islam that allow Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women and very young girls.
- The obsession with sex that overwhelms so many Islamic jihadis, who fully expect to have endless sexual relations with seventy-two sex slaves in “Paradise.” Think about that and compare it to the Christian Heaven. Orthodox Muslim men are entranced by the belief that in Paradise they will find eternal joy at the hands of sex slaves.
The video below quotes from the Qur’an and the traditions of Mohammed. As any devout Orthodox Muslim will tell you: if the teachings are in the Qur’an and the sacred teachings of Mohammed (the “Sunnah”), then they are legitimate, valid, and must be followed.
In conclusion: the sexual exploitation of children and women under Islam, by Orthodox Muslim men, must not be ignored. How can we ignore the sexual victimization of children and women?
Will fear stop us?
